Miley Cyrus' 'Black Mirror' Songs Are Nine Inch Nail Covers
Miley Cyrus’ Black Mirror episode, "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too," is now available to stream on Netflix, and some of the songs in the episode may sound familiar.
That’s because they’re actually rewrites of Nine Inch Nails songs that have been "pop-ified." "On a Roll" is really a re-do of "Head Like a Hole" and "Right Where It Belongs" has also been tweaked for the episode.
"I didn’t question the integrity of how it would be used," Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor said. "It was a flattering ask, and I thought, Yeah, let’s try it, let’s see."
"They’re hilariously catchy! Which, of course is what they are, what the songs are designed to be," co-executive producer Annabel Jones added. "It’s funny, for sort of a satirical take on a pop star, we were humming them ourselves. Everybody throughout the production was singing along unknowingly."
Meanwhile, Miley had a bit of drama with an Instagram-famous baker who claimed she stole the idea for the "Abortion is Healthcare" cake she posed with to promote her Planned Parenthood collaboration with Marc Jacobs.
Becca Rea-Holloway, aka The Sweet Feminist on Instagram, shared her image of the cake shortly after the restrictive HB314 abortion law was passed by Alabama’s Senate last month. "This is my art work without credit! Anyone who knows anything about intellectual property/art work plz send me a message!," she wrote on her Instagram story.
Miley quickly responded: "Hi, we saw the image online and didn’t realize it was yours. We will absolutely tag you for your work…It is just on the post and not on the merchandise but we will absolutely tag you and give you the credit for your art. If you could please correct your post, as we’re going to make sure you have all the credit you deserve… thanks for sharing your art and inspiring us. 🎂"
However, it didn’t end there. Becca replied back that her response "doesn’t change the fact that my work was used with my consent and it is not sufficient." The baker also claimed she has been on the receiving end of online hate after replying to Cyrus: "I have gotten hundreds of threatening, horrible comments and messages in the past couple of hours for simply pointing out that my work had been stolen. I hope you understand that this sort of mistake has serious, tangible consequences for artists like myself."
Miley has since tagged Becca in the post, giving her credit for the cake.
