Miley Cyrus: There's More to 'Wrecking Ball' Video Than Just the Nudity


Miley Cyrus: There's More to 'Wrecking Ball' Video Than Just the Nudity


The pop singer wants people to 'look beyond the obvious' to 'see kind of what the video really means.'

With more than 19 million views within 24 hours since it premiered, Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" video has succeeded not only in wrestling the Vevo record from One Direction's "Best Song Ever" but has also managed to overshadow the 20-year-old pop rock singer's raunchy performance at the VMAs. That is because now all the attention is on the nudity and other sexual innuendos in her Terry Richardson-directed music video.

But Cyrus says the controversial clip is much more than its shocking elements, and hopefully "people get past the point that I'm naked and you actually look at me you can tell that I actually look more broken then even the song sounds." She also wants the video to be appreciated more for the song which she says, "Everyone is going to relate to, everyone has felt that feeling at one point."

The "We Can't Stop" singer also says she had a harder time doing the video than recording the song because she wanted to show the vulnerability, and if only its viewers can "go into their imagination a little bit" to "see kind of what the video really means." In the actual clip, Cyrus left very little to the imagination when she sang from the top of a wrecking ball wearing nothing but a pair of Doc Martens.

Despite all the opposition and criticism that have come and will still come her way over "Wrecking Ball", Cyrus apparently has the understanding and support of her father, country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus. "It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt ... a Tux ... or a nun's habit. The song's a smash ... and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent," he said.
