‘Black Mirror’ gets “outrageously out there and dark” in music industry plot
Now, Cyrus has come out to say that her episode, in particular, is pretty wild.
The episode called “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too” will focus on a pop singer named Ashley O., played by Cyrus. However, it will dig deeper on a much broader concept, the artist said to BCC Radio 1 Newsbeat.
“This is the story of females in the music industry,” Cyrus said. “I understand everyone’s gone through this but I do think for females in the industry … it’s hard to be taken seriously. … People assume that if you’re not wearing a body suit and singing pop music, why would anyone want to see you?”
Both Cyrus and her character live in Malibu and work closely with their families. These similarities are why the creators told her to “really deep” dive into her own experience.
“My family is what’s kept me the way that I am and kept me still loving music,” Cyrus said.
She added that the episode is "outrageously out there and dark."
"We love anything about the darkness of technology," she said.
We’ll have to wait until the show premieres June 5 to see just how dark this season is going to get.
Not only did the Netflix just announce the official release date, but they dropped a chilling season 5 trailer starring Cyrus, Mackie, Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
It looks like technology will be the driving force in the three stories set to appear on the season.
