Miley Cyrus Schools Bob Dylan

Is there no limit to Miley's brilliance? Not content with radically improving Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and bringing Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" to a whole new audience of drug-fucked teens, the iconic diva has just dropped a breathtaking cover of Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" for a forthcoming Amnesty International charity album. I thought Ke$ha's contribution to that opus would be impossible to beat but Milegend's Dylan cover is even better. She lets her inner-country singer take over and delivers an earthy, stripped-back rendition that highlights the 19-year-old's smoky pipes (I'm not talking about her bong collection!) and the subtle poetry of the song's lyrics. Seriously, Miley needs to move to Nashville and record a bluegrass album. It would make all our faves redundant. Watch in awe below as two creative titans collide!

I hope you're joking about radically improving Smells Like Teen Spirit. Otherwise, you're gonna get owned big time!

Miley Christus is flawless, and this is incredible. Very Dolly-esque, you can tell she values what her Godmother has contributed to music, and really studied and learned from that.
