The pop rock singer momentarily stops the twerking but sheds off all her clothes in her new music video.
After her twerk-filled performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus shocks anew with her music video for "Wecking Ball", the slow ballad from her forthcoming album "Bangerz". The 20-year-old entertainer wears nothing but a pair of Doc Martens as she sings about a failed romance atop a wrecking ball, supposedly about her relationship with fiance Liam Hemsworth.
Cyrus gives her twerking and tongue-twisting ways a rest in the almost four-minute clip, presenting a more toned-down persona to match the somber tune. But whether she's singing "We Can't Stop" or about a lost love, the controversial artist doesn't fail to grab attention, this time shedding her already skimpy pair of a white midriff top with matching bikini bottom.
Before climbing on the wrecking ball in her birthday suit, she does try though to show some vulnerability to go along with the sentimental lyrics, tearing up as the video kicks off with her close-up shot. "Don't you ever say I just walked away/ I will always want you/ I can't live a lie, running for my life/ I will always want you...I came in like a wrecking ball/ I never hit so hard in love/ All I wanted was to break your walls/ All you ever did was wreck me / Yeah you wreck me," she sings.
Cyrus' on-again-off-again romance with Hemsworth reportedly met its final end after her raunchy performance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs which the actor found "mortifying." He is apparently "over her and wants to make a clean break...No more back and forth."
