'Wrecking Ball' Music Video: Miley Cyrus Is Naked and Emotional

At-risk youth Miley Cyrus has made another one of them singing moving pictures and, oh boy, you can just hear the outrage coming. That's right, the wholesome teen idol of yesteryear is naked! Someone call the American Family Association.

There's a reason Miley's music video for "Wrecking Ball" looks like a Terry Richardson shoot come to life, it was directed by the bespectacled photographer. The video shows Cyrus swinging on a wrecking ball (how literal!) and destroying some sort of cinderblock structure with a sledgehammer. It opens and closes with some very Sinead O'Conner-esque closeups.

Oh, and her tongue is back.

There are probably going to be some people up in arms over this, but it all seems pretty silly doesn't it? The song is very emotional and raw, her nudity is just an extension of that vulnerability. If anything, Cyrus is just guilty of over-literal imagery. But I digress, you didn't come here for an Intro to Comparative Lit course.

    I think she looks great, and the song is pretty darn catchy, just close your eyes and enjoy the music, who the hell watches MUSIC VIDEOS anymore anyways? They sure as sh**don't show them on MUSIC TV...pieces of dog feces, yeah, I'd rather watch a bunch of teenage mother's, whose situations can somehow be attributed to what the fu** Miley Cyrus does! Well, job well done Miley, everyone is talking about you! Good or Bad, we're all intrigued, hook, line, sinker!!!

    OMG WHAT THE WHAT IS SHE THINKING SHE IS NOT OR EVER WILL BE Rihanna or Pink and they are more adult then she will ever be. Sorry to say but she will never have any respect from anyone, Childern and parents everywhere will not want to allow them to watch her or buy her music now. So she needs to get her head screwed on straight. Her parents need to step up and say something about the shit she is doing.

    i think she has gone overboard in exploiting herself..She's got a great body, but she's using herself in the wrong way..

    Hate to admit this but it's not a bad song or video, agree that licking the sledge hammer was unnecessary. Maybe a little redemption for the twerking on the VMA's, at least this was artistic when that was raunchy.

    It's obvious who that song is about, until she started licking the hammer (Thor?) Wrong brother, Miley.

    The video I get is emotionally raw but licking the sledge hammer just ruined the whole thing for me.

    I love your comment about "The song is very emotional and raw, her nudity is just an extension of that vulnerability." I wish you had expounded upon that. I think you're right and she was in a way trying to show that but I also thing she's going through a really hard time and she's struggling to express herself. When she and Nick broke up she went through a less dramatic version of this. I'm hoping to see her healthy and happy - whatever that entails - again soon

    I watched Miley's video thinking her she goes again. And wondering why she wants to be so trashy now. Then after i watched it i thought i like the song & she was naked but the song with that video made sense & i liked it! We have all had those vulnerable moments when we put our selfs out there completely & was hurt. Good job Miley! Great song!
