'Black Mirror' Creator Explains What Attracted Miley Cyrus to Her Episode

13 June 2019

One of the episodes of the new season of the sci-fi show will feature pop star Miley Cyrus, playing a pop star in the terrifying universe of Black Mirror, and Cyrus reckons that world isn't that different to our own one.

Brooker also spoke about casting Cyrus in the series, saying that he didn't think it would actually happen, saying, "After the script was written, we were just discussing who could play the part of an global pop star, and we thought in a dream world, well, it would be somebody like Miley Cyrus". It's helmed by Norwegian director Anne Sewitsky and was written by series creator Charlie Brooker.

Check out the original Pretty Hate Machine track compared to Cyrus' rejection of her pop star alter ego and the updated version below. Given that Miley's draw remains strong - despite having previously disavowed hip-hop music only to once again dubiously dabble in the genre - her upcoming turn in Black Mirror has many curious as to the results.

She performed "Head Like A Hole" but with a few of the lyrics changed. "He got it straight away".

Nine Inch Nails were apparently so into the collab that the band took it to some new merch. "It was via email and he was really happy", explains Brooke. "I'm not the best lyricist in the world, and there's one point where she's singing "I'm stoked on ambition and verve" instead of 'You're gonna get what you deserve'".

Despite Season 5 of Black Mirror only being released at midnight on Wednesday, some fans have already binge-watched the entire season and shared their thoughts on Twitter, in meme form of course.
