“This is why I love music. You can be one artist one year and the next discover some crazy light inside yourself and shine it everywhere … This Miley album is amazing. You can’t try to make something like this. You just tap the vein and don’t question a single instinct.”

Cyrus’ “Slab of Butter (Scorpion)” appears to be another favorite of Mayer’s, as he quoted that trippy track as well, Tweeting, “Self control/ is /not something I’m working on’ sung heroically and melodically. Come. On.”

The “Waiting on the World to Change” singer wrapped up his social media gushing, calling the album “a masterwork of whack genius.”
