A whirlwind of controversy has been fuelling Miley Cyrus' latest performance on stage at the EMA awards. Keep your shirt on, I don't mean to deal with that matter, but I deem that this song (notwithstanding its quite off-colour video, not suitable for young teenagers) could be useful for teachers. If you are going to plan a lesson on child stars then and now, for example, you can direct your students' attention on the consequences of success or going against social rules. In that case, this song would be a good starting point to revise a rather boring grammar topic, like simple past, as well as to practise speaking abilities.
Grammar focus on: simple past (regular/ irregular verbs, affirmative form)
Activity: turn the given verbs into the simple past form

Tips for teachers: I am also linking this version of the video song, containing the lyrics, in case you wish to use the song only to start a conversation in class:
