The 28-year-old singer gave a performance during NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert on Thursday (January 28) where she sang a verse from her anti-Trump track “Golden G String.”
“So the mad man’s in the big chair / And his heart’s an iron vault / He says ‘If you can’t make ends meet, honey, it must be your fault,’” Miley sang while in a stage set to look like her old teenage bedroom.
During an interview with The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music back in November 2020, Miley revealed that she wrote the song back in 2017 or 2018 and that it “is reflective of Donald Trump as president and the men [who] hold all the cards — and they ain’t playing gin, and they determine your fate.”
“This song, which is also about kind of the cross I’ve had to bear, in a way, of saying, ‘I feel like everything that I’ve done has just been up for all the opinions and I guess people being offended and all this s–t,” Miley continued.
“But it’s like our president grabs women by the …. and you’re mad at me,” Miley went on. “I’m a pop star. I’m supposed to do these things. I’m supposed to do things that sometimes make you uncomfortable or you take offense. That’s kind of my job, that’s entertainment…I don’t want that in a leader. You don’t want an entertainer.”
