Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed and can’t stop and really can’t dance. But the one thing she excels at lately is making people talk about her, and it’s translating into massive sales of her
autotuned warbling set to music songs. So clearly, whatever she’s doing is working, even if a lot of people find it utterly cringeworthy.
Still, she’s shocked — shocked! — everyone is making such a fuss about her being naked in the video for her new song “Wrecking Ball.” Which, coincidentally, is the same video that quickly became Vevo’s most-viewed ever. Because Miley Cyrus is naked in it.
“I think the video is much more,” she told Elvis Duran on New York’s Z100. “If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds.”
And yeah, the clip opens with a single theatrical tear rolling down Miley’s cheek, and the song itself is clearly about heartbreak. That’s what you’re supposed to notice, because according to her, paying attention to the blatant nudity just makes you an unimaginative simpleton.
“If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable … If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record.”
“It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”
There you have it. “Wrecking Ball” is about feelings. Miley only fellated a sledge hammer and took off her clothes in the video to show you her feelings so you’d feel them too. Can you see the feelings? Look at them. Look! NO, NOT AT HER TITS. AT HER FEELINGS. DAMN.
It’s like 50 million of you — and counting! — are nothing but pervs. Besides, everyone knows you can’t just stand there and sing with your clothes on and expect people to feel your feelings.
