Miley Cyrus has dismissed reports suggesting she is courting controversy in her new track We Can't Stop by singing about taking drugs.

Fans have already started speculating about the song's meaning as the pop star appears to boast about "dancing with molly" in the party-themed tune. Molly is a reference to rave drug ecstasy, but Cyrus insists she is singing about dancing with herself.

She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I knew people were gonna wonder what I'm saying in that song.

"I have an accent, so when I say, 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly'. You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says, 'Miley'."

Ironically, Miley's name has become a hip-hop reference for cocaine.

She explains, "Have you heard (Rick Ross rhyme) 'I got a bad b**ch in my Chevy/Sellin' Miley Cyrus in my brand new Monte Carlo'? People refer to (cocaine) as 'Miley Cyrus'... so even if I'm saying 'Miley' (on my song), people could find something wrong with it."
