Miley Cyrus – Cattitude (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)
Miley Cyrus has been teasing her fans on social media on something cooking behind the curtains. She kept on teasing “She Is Coming” tagline on her social media, which appeared to be a remark of the upcoming project. Little did we know, until now, that ‘She Is Coming’ is the title of Miley’s upcoming EP.
“Cattitude” appears in the upcoming ‘She Is Coming’ EP by Miley Cyrus, due to release on May 31, 2019.
The rumored tracks Miley had performed on stage are “Cattitude,” “Mother’s Daughter” and “Drugs Ruled Everything Around Me.” A snippet of her performing “Mother’s Daughter” was posted by the popstar on Twitter.
The song title is a combination of the words “cat” and “attitude.” ‘Cat’ is often used to symbolize females, and in the lyrics of this song, Miley does not hold back.
Miley Cyrus sings about tuning up ‘gratitude’ as a value and tuning down ‘attitude’ mentality. She also boasts that she does not have ‘attitude,’ but rather a ‘cattitude,’ which appears to mean a stand towards female empowerment.
Miley Cyrus also shouts out to her hometown Nashville, Tennessee, and reminisces how she was turned into music by her parents, most notably by her father-the Country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus, since she was three years old. Currently, Miley’s mother Tish Cyrus acts as her manager.
A controversial line on “Cattitude” is when Miley Cyrus name drops Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. The industry is well versed with the cold (at times heated) rivalry between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B for the ‘queen of rap and hip hop’ status. In these lyrics, Miley Cyrus seems to be taking sides with Cardi B, as she sings “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.”
Prior to the release of the song, Miley Cyrus had started a wave of “I love you Miley, but I listen to……” memes on Twitter. All sorts of Tweets started flowing in; “I love you Miley but I listen to Liam Hemsworth,” “I LOVE YOU MILEY BUT I LISTEN TO BILLY RAY CYRUS 😭😭,” “I love you Miley, but I listen to Ariana,” and the list continues. All these were in good faith, as Miley herself retweeted these and Tweeted the following;
Miley also tributes Beyonce by calling her a ‘queen’ out of the blue. But she recommends that she also be recognized in ‘queen’ status.
