Okay (despite that terrifying picture) I’m going to say something that I’ve never admitted to people before.

I don’t hate Miley Cyrus.

Woof. Okay. There. I said it.

Did she have a rough start for a bit there? Yeah.

But has she also recently started doing some great community work, started making some BOMB tracks with the Flaming Lips and continues to push the envelope by being a weirdo on national television?

Oh yeah.

And, heck, weirdos that just gush strange creativity regardless of looking like idiots? Those are my kind of people. You can join my team, Miley.

Okay, now that the Miley rant is over, let’s get to the reason we’re all here: your 5 O’Clock Shadow. Miley covers the Dolly Parton classic “Jolene” and just knocks it out of the park with the combination of her raspy vocals and Dolly’s bitter lyrics.

Check it:

THE ORIGINAL: Dolly Parton, “Jolene”

THE COVER: Miley Cyrus, “Jolene”
