She’s baaack. It’s time to turn the brightness down on your computer, inch closer to the screen, and watch Miley Cyrus’s newly released NSFW “Wrecking Ball” music video. Directed by Terry Richardson, the video opens with a close-up of Miley with a single tear running down her cheek (why so serious?) as she sings about a complicated relationship. Suddenly, the queen of twerk is unleashed in a cropped tank, latex underwear (they’re baaack), and Dr. Martens–she’s now surrounded by concrete walls itching to destroy with a sledgehammer in hand.
This ain’t your daddy’s construction site.
Next up Miley seductively straddles a swinging wrecking ball, licks the sledgehammer, and continues to ride on the wrecking ball, but this time completely naked. You’ll never look at a tire swing the same way again.
Is Miley trying to earnestly send a message about hard times in love and feeling broken, or is this just another way to grab our attention?
Whatever it is, she’s keeping it weird.
BTW, this video was published yesterday and already has nearly 19 million YouTube views. #America.
