Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Miley Cyrus transformation from teen queen to twerk queen has dominated pop cultural discourse in recent weeks -- from that VMAs performance to her inevitable split from Liam Hemsworth.

Still proving that she's no Taylor Swift, the 20-year-old appears in a high school-themed music video for rapper Mike WiLL Made It’s "23," wearing a cutout Michael Jordan jersey and smoking in the girl's bathroom.

“I’m in the club high off purp with some shades on,” she raps. “Drinking out the bottle, I got no respect. Looking like a model, you just got a check. I back it up, cause I don’t give a f***."

Most recently, Cyrus also appeared bare-chested and wet on the cover of this month's Rolling Stone, in which she defends her new performance aesthetic and criticizes what she sees as America's misguided moral outrage.

“America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong,” she said. “Like, I was watching Breaking Bad the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show. It’s a how-to. And then they bleeped out the word ‘f***.’ And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘f***’?"
