Miley Cyrus’ Led Zeppelin Cover Rocks Hard, Silences Haters

Lately, it feels like Miley Cyrus has been doing everything but singing. The pop star made headlines last week when her controversial art show ,“Dirty Hippie," made its debut at New York Fashion Week. That might explain why Cyrus decided to unleash a ferocious cover of Led Zeppelin's "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" on SoundCloud this weekend.
"Check dis s--t out," she wrote on Twitter. But, what Cyrus really seems to be saying is, "So what if I just stuck some beads on a dildo and called it art? Don't forget I can sing any song I want and kill it."
It can be easy to forget that beyond all of her attention-getting shenanigans lies a gifted musician with very diverse taste. In the past, Cyrus has covered Dolly Parton's "Jolene" and The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," both to stirring results. According to her Instagram account, next up is Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man," which should help introduce the Montreal troubadour to a whole new audience.
For now, here's Miley absolutely blowing some Zeppelin out of the water, just because she can.
