To promote her upcoming album, Katy Perry has been posting clever videos promising a new, streamlined persona. To promote her upcoming album, Lady Gaga posted a video in which she gets her septum pierced.
And then there’s Miley Cyrus, who just tweeted the damn title of her upcoming album.
Astute readers will notice that she is spelling that title with a Z at the end, rather than an S:
If you don’t know why my record is called BANGERZ you’ll know as soon as you hear it. Nothin but #BANGERZ

“Bangers” might work for an album made by her father, but for Miley Cyrus, only a Z will do. (Incidentally, she’s considering going the full Miley and dropping her dad’s name entirely.)
If “We Can’t Stop” is any indication, BANGERZ should deliver on its title. And it looks like we may have an additional nine seconds by which to judge the album. The following leak—titled “Bangerz” and billed to Miley and Britney Spears—sounds as rugged as we’d hope from twerk-era Miley:
Whether or not the female voice belongs to Britney or Miley (or someone else entirely) we obviously can’t say for sure, but it would certainly make sense for M. to recruit B., that “one person” in her life “who gets it.” What is “it,” exactly? We’ll just have to wait for BANGERZ to find out.
