"This song is undeniable. Miley’s like, “We can’t stop” - in that sense, it’s a typical party song. It’s minimal. But there’s this melancholy running through it, which is one of my favorite types of pop song. You could easily write a straight-up sad song over the beat. I like that hint of sadness. It’s like, “Why can’t you stop? What’s going to happen if you do stop?"
- Ezra Koenig - Rolling Stone Magazine
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
