Miley Cyrus has flaunted her surprising range as of late, by covering Fleetwood Mac, OutKast, The Beatles (alongside The Flaming Lips, no less) and The Smiths. Now, she continues to surprise with a new, lo-fi cover of “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” as made famous in 1969 by Led Zeppelin.
Rolling Stone initially panned Led Zeppelin’s version of the Anne Bredon-written song upon its 1969 release. “The song is very dull (especially on the vocal passages), very redundant, and certainly not worth the six-and-a-half minutes the Zeppelin gives it,” writer John Mendelsohn said.
With her version (titled “Baby, I’m Gonna Leave You”), though, Cyrus reminds of why Led Zeppelin’s take would later be hailed as one of its finest moments. Each time the Bangerz star sings the driving hook, her loud wails cut through the heavy guitar riffs and drums — a bold reminder that yes, she can sing.

The psychedelic, eye-catching jewelry that graced Jeremy Scott’s NYFW runway show yesterday was pretty hard to miss. And you can credit none other than Miley Cyrus for that.
The 21-year-old debuted her first-ever jewelry designs, just a portion of her aptly titled Dirty Hippie art collection, at the funky runway show. And now, the eccentric designer is opening up exclusively to E!’s Zana Roberts Rossi about working with the twerking-sensation-turned-jeweler.
“She hand-made all the jewelry and all the accessories herself,” Scott dished. As for how she found time to design the psychedelic collection? “A lot of it happened last night; I was like, ‘I need more [jewelry]!'” Scott joked.

She’s never one to shy away from controversy and Miley Cyrus lives up to her reputation in her upcoming interview with Chris Bath on Sunday Night.
The acclaimed Australian journalist sat down with the 21-year-old for a one-on-one for the Channel Seven current affairs program, and the Wrecking Ball singer doesn’t hold anything back.
Talking about her famous shift from child star to raunchy celebrity, Cyrus calls out Hollywood’s ‘double standard’ when it comes to her famous dance move.
‘Elvis, he wasn’t wearing the outfits I was wearing but he was coming out and he was doing like the OG twerking,’ she tells Bath.
The interview is set to air on Channel Seven on Sunday at 8.45pm.
‘Like, no one wants to admit that he was twerking, he was.
‘He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis a sl** because he wasn’t a girl.
‘It’s that double standard and I think I’m doing something for the double standard.’
The interview, which airs on Sunday, then gets into Cyrus’ risky fashion choices – something fans will get to see plenty of when she arrives for her Australian tour in October.
‘That’s just what I like to wear,’ said the former Hannah Montana star.
‘I never think about what someone is going to think. I’ve always been into fashion.
‘I grew up around Dolly Parton who is all… tits.
‘This dress is right out of her kind of book, I just don’t fill it the way she does.’
