Miley Cyrus doesn’t care if her latest music video makes you uncomfortable.

Clad in a red latex catsuit, the 26-year-old released the video for her new single “Mother’s Daughter,” which depicts women in every form.

The song was written by Miley, Andrew Wyatt, and Alma, and has been described as an anthem of female empowerment.

Following on from the powerful lyrics, “Don’t f— with my freedom / I came back to get me some / I’m nasty, I’m evil / Must be something in the water or that I’m my mother’s daughter,” the video includes statements such as “not an object,” “my body, my rules,” and “virginity is a social construct”.

The video includes various stages of nudity, a woman breastfeeding, and a disabled African-American trans woman.

Also making an appearance is the mother referenced in the song’s title — Tish Cyrus. She sits next to Miley who sings, “My mama always told me that I’d make it.”

And that she certainly has.
