"Wrecking Ball" has not only given Miley Cyrus her first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, apparently it also got her a $10,000 high-tech Numi toilet. The bathroom fixture is the wager that she agreed on with the track's producer Dr. Luke in a bet over whether the song will land the top spot in the Billboard singles chart.
"Contrary to what he thinks, Dr. Luke isn't always right," the 20-year-old singer said about the hit maker. "I bet him that 'Wrecking Ball' would go to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it did. Now he has to buy me a $10,000 toilet. I'll be thinking of him every time I go," the pop-rock singer revealed the costly gamble.
For her confidence over the potential of the said "Bangerz" single, Cyrus will be receiving a toilet that has a Bluetooth receiver that can stream music from a smartphone, a heated seat and an LCD touch screen. It's sort of a bonus considering the success that Cyrus has already garnered from "Wrecking Ball", including the Vevo record for its music video for most views in its first 24 hours of being posted last September 9 with 19.3 million global views.
For a record producer of a caliber as that of Dr. Luke, it was surprising to learn that he did not think straight away that the record he produced would be a smash hit. But after he hands over the Numi toilet he owes Cyrus, though he may be set back by $10,000, it would certainly give him a reminder that he indeed has the Midas touch when it comes to churning out those chart-toppers.
