Miley Cyrus updates 'Santa Baby' for 2018 on Jimmy Fallon

Miley Cyrus updates 'Santa Baby' for 2018 on Jimmy Fallon

The pop star sang her version on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon after pointing out that the lyrics ask Santa for "a auto, a yacht and cheques" in exchange for a "hook up with Santa".

The singer performed the song Thursday night alongside Mark Ronson and Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show".

"Santa Baby" now gets a feminist spin as Cyrus asks Santa to actually listen to what she says.

The song also insinuates that in order to get good gifts you need to sleep with Santa, so we totally get Miley's outrage.

She changed the lyrics, which focus on a woman telling Santa about all the material things she wants for Christmas, to be more empowering for women. "And look at this: I'm asking for a vehicle and a yacht and checks and literally a deed to a platinum mine". In its feminist Version, they made it clear that she doesn't need a man to buy her jewelry or expensive cars - even if it is dressed in Red and White.

So you might want to get a good look on Friday night and again on Sunday night when the skies are expected to be a bit clearer. The American Meteor Society says at the peak, there should be about 11 sporadic meteors per hour just before dawn.

In her version, she said she doesn't need Santa's presents because she can buy her "own damn stuff". "Nothing that comes in a box".

The pop star went on to affirm that she "can buy my own damn stuff", and has a "baller auto of my own" that she bought on her own.

Miley concluded the performance by repeating the lyrics, "Sorry, Santa just put away your chimney tonight!"

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 on NBC. The song is Cyrus" first release since she dropped the album "Younger Now' more than a year ago.
