Miley Cyrus has overhauled the lyrics to Santa Baby, turning the festive classic into a feminist anthem.
The pop star sang her version on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon after pointing out that the lyrics ask Santa for “a car, a yacht and cheques” in exchange for a “hook up with Santa”.
In her version, she said she doesn’t need Santa’s presents because she can buy her “own damn stuff”.
“Listen Santa to what I say, a girl’s best friend is… equal pay,” she sang.
The track was originally recorded in 1953 by Eartha Kitt and features a woman telling Father Christmas her gift list because she has been “an awfully good girl”.
In her updated version, Cyrus sang: “Don’t want diamonds, cash or stocks. Nothing that comes in a box. No more fluff, I’ve had enough. And I can buy my own damn stuff.”
She went on to sing that she bought a car “all by myself, Santa baby, with zero help from Elf on the Shelf”.
She finished with the line: “Santa baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed at work, by some ignorant jerk.”
- Should we stop listening to these Christmas songs?
- What’s the recipe for a Christmas number one?
At the start of the sketch, she also told Fallon she objected to the line “slip a sable under the tree”.
“Do you even know what that is?” she asked the talk show host. “It’s a fur and I’m vegan.”
Santa Baby is not the first Christmas song this year from Cyrus.
She has also released a version of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Happy Christmas War is Over, recorded with their son Sean Ono Lennon and Mark Ronson.
Their new version only had a slight lyric change, replacing “yellow and red ones” with “left and right ones”.
