Miley Cyrus Revamps ‘Santa Baby’ For A More Modern Woman

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus put a feminist spin on the Christmas classic, “Santa Baby.”

Cyrus was uncomfortable with the outdated words to the song, which were written in 1953. “I’m asking for a car, and a yacht and checks, and literally the deed to a platinum mine. Plus, am I saying that I’m going to hook up with Santa if he buys me all this stuff?” Cyrus asked Jimmy Fallon. As she was not down with those lyrics, she changed them and made magic.

“Santa baby, I don’t need any fancy jewelry. Not me. I’ve got something else in mind. Santa baby, and I don’t need your presents tonight,” sang Cyrus, while a confused Fallon danced around her. The changed lyrics included, “No more fluff, I’ve had enough and I can buy my own damn stuff!” and “Listen, Santa, to what I say — a girl’s best friend is equal pay.”

Earlier this month, radio stations around the U.S. began pulling the 1944 classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” in the wake of the #MeToo movement, citing that it’s “no longer appropriate.” But what is appropriate and fan-approved is Cyrus’s new version of “Santa Baby.” One person tweeted:

While others shared:

Basically, Cyrus is doing more than spreading holiday cheer this season. She’s empowering women, and we are totally here for it.
