Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey teamed up for the new anthem “Don’t Call Me Angel” — and some fans think Cyrus is throwing some subliminal shade at her estranged husband in the song’s music video.
The defiant new bop features a scorching verse from Cyrus, which includes the lyrics: “Don’t call me angel when I’m a mess / Don’t call me angel when I get undressed / You know I don’t like that, boy,” she rap-sings early in the track. “Do I need to say it again? / You better stop the sweet talk and keep your pretty mouth shut.”
Within hours of the single’s release Fans pointed out on Twitter that Hemsworth used to always call Cyrus his little angel on his Instagram. Cyrus’ verse in the song takes aim at that pet name. She sings, “Don’t call me angel when I’m a mess / Don’t call me angel when I get undressed / You know I, I don’t like that, boy / Uh, I make my money, and I write the checks / So say my name with a little respect.” They also noted that she appears to be beating up a man who looks a little like Hemsworth during her segment. Coincidence or easter egg, you be the judge.
