Miley Cyrus has released the “Wrecking Ball” music video, and in it the singer opens up emotionally – and sexually.
“Wrecking Ball” is a song about a partner who destroyed her, but Miley couldn’t resist sexualizing the emotional, serious message as much as possible.
What starts off as a sad song with a close up of Miley shedding a tear turns into a bunch of visual, sexual innuendo which doesn’t relate to the single at all: The licking of a sledgehammer, riding nude on a wrecking ball, and forcefully turning to show her backside are all seen in the video. What could’ve been a nice way to play mature Miley turned into another attempt at grabbing attention.
Supporters of Miley could argue that the singer was baring all because the song is about being torn apart by the bad relationship. To most, Miley is making another attempt at shocking the world so everyone talks about her. Like her Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke, this one will get people talking and Miley will once again have a big win on her hands.
“Wrecking Ball” is the second single off of Cyrus’ forthcoming studio album BANGERZ which is slated to drop on October 8. Her first song, “We Can’t Stop,” has been at the top of the popular music charts for months.
