The Word: Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed by ’70-year-old Jewish man’

Miley Cyrus is an artist, yo. She knows what the kids want to hear because she’s the one out there dancing with them, not some old Jews who… control… the magazines and movies… uh oh.

“With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear,” Miley explained in an interview with Hunger TV, apparently unaware that she’d just invoked an ugly stereotype.

I guess I should be most offended that Miley basically just said that Jews control the media, but I am a little more hurt that she thinks Jews are not cool. I mean, 70-year-olds of any religion are uncool. Did she have to tack Jewish on there? We are very cool! We dance in the clubs to the music! We can’t stop! We won’t stop! I mean, I personally stop at 10:45 p.m., but that’s because I have to get up early to write about Miley Cyrus.

Seriously though, she kind of just said that Jews control the media. Someone’s going to call her on that, right? Right?
