Miley Cyrus is sooo totally not singing about doing ecstasy in 'We Can't Stop,' you guys

There's no way I would ever sing about drugs, folks. Doing them, on the other hand ...

There's no way I would ever sing about drugs, folks. Doing them, on the other hand ...

If you're more than, say, 20 years old, chances are you don't follow the releases of Miley Cyrus' latest singles, but her newest one, We Can't Stop, has raised some eyebrows among more puritanical radio listeners, just because she makes an apparent reference to doing X. Does ecstasy even get people angry anymore? Apparently so.

The chorus of the song, which is basically about going crazy  once your Disney show is off the air and you're older than 18 so your dad can't sell you to the entertaiment grinder anymore, sounds as if it goes, "we like to party, dancing with Molly, doing whatever we want."

Molly, for the uninitiated or any baby boomers reading this, is a reference to MDMA, or 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine, the chemical compound in those little pills your kids are downing like Chiclets at the local rave.

Not so, says a rep for producer Mike WiLL Made It (yes, that's his name), who insists to TMZ the line is "dancing with Miley." You can give it a listen below to decide if that the case, but really, do you care that much?

TMZ adds there was no mention whether the lyric "trying to get a line in the bathroom" was about cocaine or not, but we figure the excuse it's actually "trying to get on line for the bathroom." Because, you know, why not?
