Laying or Lying? An ‘open letter’ to Miley Cyrus from Sufjan Stevens

So far, the best open letter to Miley Cyrus. Bravo. There’s no rebuttal for poor grammar.

Dear Miley. I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: “I been laying in this bed all night long.” Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. “I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.” Whatever. I’m not the best lyricist, but you know what I mean. #Get It Right The Next Time.
