Miley Cyrus
'Jaded'
18 May 2023 3 mins 04s

Miley Cyrus continues to work on her grown-up image in this slick promo for new single 'Jaded'. The soaring track makes the most of the former Hannah Montana singer's vocals, choosing the embrace the rough edges to her voice rather than smooth them out for something less striking.

Directors Jacob Bixenman and Brendan Walter give a similarly mature sheen to the accompanying visuals, taking a soft-focus approach as Cyrus sports a Madonna-style leotard, rolls around topless on a bed, and frolics in a swimming pool. It's glossy and well-composed stuff, with each shot carefully placed within the film's whole.

Which makes it a shame that the press surrounding 'Jaded' seems to be all about one thing: whether the track references Cyrus's famous ex-husband. The Taylor Swift school of making (not so) vague allusions to one's personal life has added an unpleasant aftertaste to many songs in recent years, and it'd make a nice change if someone decided to focus on the music for once.
