Miley Cyrus Was She On Molly During the VMA Show?

Was Miley on Molly during MTV Show

During a work discussion about Miley Cyrus and her VMA performance, someone asked what “Molly” was and then went on to question whether or not Miley Cyrus had been on the drug during the show.

Valid question.

Watching the footage of Miley Cyrus’ performance, and we are being polite by referring to her sexual gyrations as a performance, something comes off as being very wrong with the young pop star. Not just in the over-sexualization of her routine, but in her whole attitude.

Having been around enough young people who use “mind altering” drugs as a pastime, the signs were there. The over excitement, the lack of rhythm, the everything.

But before heading down that particular road of finger pointing and accusations, let us look at what “Molly” is.

In Miley Cyrus’ song We Can’t Stop one of the refrains in the song is the lyric “Dancing with Molly.” Fans of the ex-Hannah Montana star refute that she is singing Molly, they say it is Cyrus’ pronunciation of her own name. Which, does make a certain amount of sense. She is, after all, from the south so she could be putting a “hillbilly” twang on her own name. But in all likelihood, she probably is not.

Country twang or not, Miley Cyrus looked like she was on something on Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards and it could very well have been Molly. Something snorted before she hit the stage on the live show perhaps.

Molly aka Mandy is slang for MDMA. What is MDMA? A rose by any other name it is more commonly referred to as Ecstasy. A drug that leapt in popularity during the rave period of the 1990s. E, as it is also known, was sold at raves and one thing that the drug induced, besides dehydration was a euphoric “love the world” type high.

But only the pill form of MDMA is known as Ecstasy. If it is in a powdered or crystallized form it is called Molly or Mandy. MDMA in either form can, as we pointed out above, induce euphoria; a sense of closeness with others; a lowered anxiety level; and, according to Wikipedia, a mild psychedelia.

While studies have shown that MDMA may have therapeutic benefits and can facilitate therapy sessions in certain people on the street, it is an illegal substance in most countries.

MDMA or Ecstasy has been responsible for a number of teen and young adult deaths. Enough that several countries have attempted to educate the younger population of the dangers of the “happy” drug.

Anyone who has watched Cyrus in her live performance on the MTV Video Music Awards can see that something was wrong with the 20 year-old singer. While most in the audience, both there and at home, reacted in disgusted horror, others were watching what appeared to be a performance with almost suicidal intent.

Has Miley Cyrus finally killed off Hannah Montana? The obvious answer is yes. But her performance on Sunday’s VMA may also have killed off her career. It was difficult to watch and it did seem as though she was “on something” while she was on stage. You don’t have to stretch your imagination too far to ask if it was Molly, not Miley who was performing that night.

    She was probably coked up. Not MDMA, but coke. It’s too hard to focus on MDMA, but with coke she could still perform, with the drug giving her the confidence to pull it all off.

    Which is such a selfish and childish thought. She will regret this performance someday and I predict she will die young unless someone can halt the train wreck…

    You cited Wikipedia. Really? This is beside the point, but MDMA and ecstasy are two completely different things. They produce the same feelings but are not the same drug. Do proper research.

    If you have ever experimented with MDMA in any form, it was obvious that Miley was high as a kite. If you have never experimented with the drug,and have no frame of reference, then she just appeared to be a singing blow up doll grinding on an old man.
