It can get stale tossing around the word “underrated” when talking about one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. But it’s true when it comes to Miley Cyrus. It’s so delightful seeing the acclaim around her new record, Plastic Hearts, but we been knew of her greatness.
“Hate Me” is a superb blend of sugar-gum pop she’s done in the past with a biting, existential, hyper mature lyric. “I wonder what would happen if I die / I hope all of my friends get drunk and high,” she powers on the hook. Phew! Let that sink in for a moment.
