“Can we ask for a national holiday? “
Miley Cyrus celebrates the 11th anniversary of this bong video that sparked one of its most infamous controversies.
The “Plastic Hearts” singer took to Instagram to celebrate this pop culture moment with a post that included a screenshot of the original video released by TMZ in 2010.
“11 years ago,” the 29-year-old captioned the post with a smoking emoji. “Can we ask for a national holiday? “
The original video of Cyrus smoking salvia just five days after her 18th birthday had gone viral and included the teenage “Hannah Montana” star stating that she “was having a bit of a bad trip” and laughing out loud.
In 2020, the singer marked the 10th anniversary of the controversy by sharing the full video on her Instagram and reflecting on the specific time in her life.
“Happy 10 year birthday to the groundbreaking video of a teenage boy smoking a bong and saying bullshit to his friends. (I’m not sure the director of this beautiful movie is to be considered a ‘friend’ but … ) Time has really flown, “Cyrus captioned the tribute to the time.
She concluded her post: “I remember it like it was yesterday … J / KI don’t remember shit because I was fucked up. #YesItWasReallySalvia #IfYouFindWeedThatDoesThisToYouSHARE.”
Cyrus apologized for the incident in 2011 during an interview for an article on Marie Claire.
“I’m not perfect… I made a mistake… I’m disappointed to have disappointed my fans,” she told the publication at the time.
When asked if she really regretted the video since college kids across the country were also smoking bongs, the “See You Again” singer replied, “These aren’t Miley Cyrus. They aren’t models. . So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I represent. “
His dad Billy Ray Cyrus also tweeted an apology in 2010, which wrote, “Sorry guys. I had no idea. I just saw this stuff for the first time myself,” he continued. . “I’m so sad. There are a lot of things out of my control right now.”
While the public reaction was monumental at the time, the incident has since become something Cyrus can clearly not care about.
