Musician Miley Cyrus on Thursday revamped the lyrics to the Christmas song “Santa Baby” with a feminist message, calling for equal pay and an end to sexual harassment.

She appeared in a musical segment on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” to put a progressive twist on Eartha Kitt's 1953 classic.


“Don’t want diamonds, cash or stocks. Nothing that comes in a box,” Cyrus sang. “No more fluff, I’ve had enough. And I can buy my own damn stuff.”

The 26-year-old said she doesn’t need Santa to give her a car because she bought one all on her own.

“Listen Santa to what I say: A girl’s best friend is equal pay,” she sang, drawing applause from the audience.

She also addressed sexual harassment in the workplace.

“Santa baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed at work by some ignorant jerk,” Cyrus continued. “Tell the dirtbag to put away the chimney tonight.”

Cyrus's take on the Christmas classic comes amid a renewed debate surrounding the lyrics of another Christmas hit: “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

Stations across the country have raised the issue of whether the 1940s-era song's lyrics are problematic in the age of the "Me Too" and "Time’s Up" movements. 

The song has raised the issue of consent with lyrics that have a man trying to convince a woman not to leave his home as she openly questions whether to stay.

California radio station initially pulled the song off the airwaves before returning it after an “overwhelming” amount of listeners said they wanted the song to remain on air.

A radio station in Kentucky played the tune for two hours straight on Sunday as a way to fight back against the controversy surrounding the nearly 70-year-old song.
