For the three people who haven't seen a close-up of Miley Cyrus' rear (probably because they were stuck under rocks), her new music video offers another chance.
The 20-year-old singer has released the clip for "Wrecking Ball," an emotional ballad so raw that Cyrus gets stark naked to get her point across.
The video starts off innocently enough, with MTV correctly pegging Cyrus as pulling off a sadder, new era Sinead O'Connor from "Nothing Compares 2U."
But Cyrus' inspiration quickly shifts from Sinead to strip club: Before long, the star has shed a cropped white tank top and white underwear in favor of nothing at all, and sits atop a gigantic wrecking ball, swinging away in the nude.
"Don't you ever say I just walked away/I will always want you ... All I wanted was to break your walls/All you ever did was wreck me," Cyrus wails as she fondles (and then licks) a sledgehammer.
But on the plus side for her critics: Look, no twerking! See for yourself:
that's it? Her skin and how her make-up is done looks good. Lady Gaga is partially nude in her videos all the time. This song is not something I am be able to relate to. Meh, It's just boring.
Well if she got naked for the "WRECKING BALL OF STEEL" Then she should RIDE the Bone of steel, WITH THAT SKINY little chicken butt.
Nudity instead of talent. There's a new one. (not!)
She has become worthless.
For the most part, I don't see the problem. The majority of celebrities show more than enough skin. Licking the hammer takes it a little too far for me, but I bet if she never cut her hair and stopped sticking out her tongue people would not be making such a big deal out of all of this.
CAPITAL ONE....GOT HER
3 days ago she hacked in to conversation stating we were only going too keep 100 bucks in the account so we can monitor her hacking time and dates. I wanted too close the account but the person who is monitoring her said too keep the account open with only 100 bucks too monitor hacks.
she went for it....she didn't tell you have 6k in my other account did she....she was present for the phone calls.....
I think this is very nicely done. I don't see the problem. Here is a young woman who is beautiful, in her prime and a talented signer showing her body in a tasteful way. This wasn't over done and it fits with the song's message.
We need to get over our crazy fear of the human body and that showing it is somehow a bad thing. I didn't really enjoy her display at the awards show, but this is much more tastefully done and certainly appropriate.
Worried about falling into obscurity?...No problem! Just take your clothes off and straddle a wrecking ball!
Problem is it is only valid for one time usage. As Miley has now done it, the opportunity has been snat-ched from our fame hungry fingertips. I was seriously thinking about making a video of me licking a sledge hammer!

SHE IS NO EXAMPLE TOO ANYONE SHE IS A FELON
Even a naked Miley Cyrus can't save that song.
YOU 3 ARE HACKERS, BIMBOS AND NO EXAMPLE TOO UPCOMING WOMEN AND HOW THEY SHOULD ACT IN RELATIONSHIPS....ARTICLES ARE GOING, WE HAVE MEETINGS DIRECTLY WITH CNN.....YOU JUST A BIMBO AND A DIRTY LOOKING ONE ALSO.
THE INSULTS ARE FILED AGAINST HER...
AND WE HAVE DUE DILIGENCE CONFERENCE CALLS NEXT WEEK TO GET RID OF THESE ARTICLES....
THE ARTICLES ARE GOING GOOBER MANDY....SOBBING YES BUT AS GOD AS MY WITNESS YOU FKING OUTTA HERE
SHE IS A CRIMINAL AND A HACK
She is showing her pride in a beautiful body, you don't have to like it, and you don't have to be a part of it. Get over it. Look at some of the insults in these comments – these are things our youth say to each other that bullies them to suicide. Shame on the haters for spreading such awfulness, you are the 'ugly' in all of this.
THE ARTICLES ARE GOING GOOBER MANDY....SOBBING YES BUT AS GOD AS MY WITNESS YOU FKING OUTTA HER.
I don't care to read any of the above posts or to over analyze the video...but I will say...this is very personal. I don't think it was made for "publicity". I feel it is "jilted lover note" to the one that hurt her. So much emotion...I can feel her pain...it's like saying I did this...but can I intice you back...like she doesn't understand the rejection..pain hurt...this is real emotion.
Does she think no one will listen to her if she doesn't take off her clothes or give us some tongue? She has a great voice but seriously, we are okay with watching you with clothes on.
I would wreck her.
Even with the sound muted, that was still nothing but 3:42 of my life I'll never get back.
Now, why can't my wife look like Miley? The fact of the matter is that Miley looks best naked and I wish that all women looked like her.
I feel sorry for her. Young and immature, she's probably surrounded by a circle of so-called friends who are telling her everything she does is great and so she doesn't realize what a fool she's making of herself.
Looks like miley wants to do madonna 2.0
Miley is clearly on cocaine or a similar drug. The speed and the way she speaks during interviews clearly shows this. I have known many people who do cocaine, and they behave the same as does Miley. She is destined to crash as most of them did. Her talent is also gone, I guess that is why she is employing "shock" as her tactic to get attention. Miley Cyrus is now just a wasted piece of trash no matter how much she wants to tell us she is not and the fact that she is making loads of money justifies her behavior.
Ugly, vacant 5lut.
If anybody thinks that she cares what you think, watch it again. She is a 20 year old young woman who has had a long term relationship go down the drain. Along with trying to separate herself from the long term Disney do gooders that she has been a part of for so long
So with that said I liked the song, the video went well with it.
Maybe she is no Demi Moore, but at least she is herself, battered , bruised and carrying a lot of baggage. But she is getting he attention, which is what entertainment is all about baby, keeping them on the hook....seems to me she's doing that well enough.
What I care even less is what YOU think....
And why, Rob, would you assume anyone else here gives a fat tur-d about what YOUR disgusting opinion might be? You are so jealous of Miley, you wish you had all that drooling male attention, don't you!
I wish they would get her ugly face off of the from page of CNN web. It's making me want to puke every time I see it. That girl is NOT talented. She's disgusting and nauseating. She should be working somewhere else such as 1) cheap adult video or 2) some eating establishment where she asks people, "would you like fries with that?"
In my opinion, that's all she's qualified for.
That girl is getting lots of meat!!!
I really think she's amazing... every single comment is negative! Every one seems to hate this chick! Why? She's probably a very nice intelligent cool person actually. But she getso much angry reaction response. To get such absolute total negative hateful reactions, I thought was impossibe-- But Miley did it! I don't care about her singing or song or silly cliche video- it's ok really (see I'm commenting), but I guess a lotta people really care! If her song or video was good, nobody would care or bother to reply or comment, that's for sure!
I am so tired of seeing her face.
Yikes! Would someone feed her some calories before she disapears! Not much of her to look at..... would make a good poster for ending World Hunger.
She obviously thinks she's making all these "artistic" decisions on her own behalf. But, what she doesn't realize is that her record company and management are really exploiting her. She'll learn, although it may take a while. Oh yeah, the song sucks.
The male white, corperate opression. Fear the female planet.
Yet her da da is till so proud of her? Really? I guess he's so old and tired, he needs to put up with her vulgarity or she might cut off his support checks.
Its obvious that she wants to be a porn star. Great, go make video in that genre so we dont have be sujected to one more "Miley" headline.
She is yuck all around. Why can't she be more like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift. Those two are so adorable.
I cant wait till she gets depressed to the point she starts doing porn... Now that would be something worth watching. this is boring...
Hahahaha! No kidding.
Wow, finally someone uses a name that actually fits who they are in real life! Good for you!
She have to chose a profession, singer or porn star because they don't go together.
OMG that is a disgusting video!!! What is wrong with Miley, I wish she would just go home and never sing again. Nasty, Nasty.
What the f is wrong with this girl?? I feel like if someone said to her " hey Miley, if you took your clothes off, then did some snow angels in the gravel, then licked some construction equipment, all the while singing as loud as you can, it would be really cool!" that she would actually do i-..... oh right.
And you are the guys who watch porn under the blanket. Holy on the outside and pervs on the inside. The same goes for all the negative commentators.
What the heck???? Cant sing, cant dance.... ummmm needs attention, issues!!!!!!!!! Not classy, not talented.
Wish i was her dad..I"d beat her skinny ass,but im sure dad is thinking $$$$$$$$ and No "Sense"
Terrible any way you look at it, cant sing, cant dance, needs help.
Is that Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell
I don't care about this chick, any of the scandal, whether she's talented or whether she's hot or not, but I do know that I would f the s out of her a.
She will be famous forever because she knows how too treat others.
I clicked this link only so I could go on record as saying: "I don't care, and I'm tired of hearing about this person."
SHE IS SO UGLY! LOOKS LIKE BIEBER's TWIN BROTHER! YUK!!!
I agree completely. She's totally selling her self on sx appeal and all...but she just isn't that attractive and it comes off as awkward and weird. I may be in the minority, but I find her to have zippo sx appeal no matter how hard she tries. Which kind of makes it gross...
I think she has thrush. Her mouth looks a little weird, like she needs to spit or something.
F off – you hillbilly dope
Gawd, why couldnt your father have been drunk one night because he was a total failure and crashed with your mother in the car and ended up losing you...waste of darn protein
PFFFT, another sucky video from her.
And here in Canada, obesity and diabetes is very low compared to USA. You guys need to stop eating garbage food.
It was literally, a moving video... Get it? Moving? HA!
It should be called "Train Wreck" Such as is this video and her (god awful) appearance at the VMAs.
Miley looks fabulous in her picture....she is a very pretty young woman!!!!
Oh gimee a break, 'pretty young girl' my ass. She looks like a boy. Who would want to see her naked except pedophiles? No thanks, I'll pass. She's no woman that's for sure. Definitely not a Britney or Christina. She needs a few years and a lot more weight. Seriously... She looks like a boy.
Are you kidding me? She looks like Justin Biber with make up on.
Who the hell is this person that seems to appear on CNN's headlines almost everyday?? CNN must really love her, but I don't have a clue as to who she is. What has she done that is worthwhile to society to give her this much attention? Or is she another Kardashian type famous for doing absolutely nothing but contributing to the moral decline of our youth?
Lt me state this clearly...
If you watch that video and can only manage to think about 12 year old boys... The problem lies not with Miley or myself but rather your mind and the way it "ahem" works.
Reading all these comments just make my day. Watching how fast people get angry or defensive over something that really doesn't have much meaning. Keep it up! You all make work enjoyable!
Has anybody noticed that country music is about fifteen to twenty years behind mainstream rock/R&B/alternative etc. They just now discovered long hair and screaming guitars and now this a Madonna want a be. A "Country Gaga" or Gaga lite. Whatever it is it doesn't hold a candle to the originals but I'm sure she will find her audience among those country fans.
So she decided to go the way of Brittany spears. So long you wont be missed.
I LOVE reading all the righteous indignation comments all over the web about Miley....HAHAHAHAHAH!!
In reality, most of the women can only WISH they had her trim, fit figure and most of the men have a bulge in their pants.
Pathetic hypocrites one and all in the prudish USA.
She has such a "trim" figure because she is 20 years old your dope and she looks like she is 12. It's not attractive and I'm a guy who loves hot chicks. She grosses me out.
You could have expressed your opinion without an ad hominem Greg. "your dope"....??
I was expressing mine. Much to learn you have.
I think tomnikoly might be gay. A fuuuudjepacker.
Greg being a red blooded American male I could not disagree with you more my friend:)
Ted ... You think? Now that is a shocker:)
Was just thinking how much like a little girl she looked in the video... Was a little disgusted by it. And if we're talking about being envious of another woman's body, I think Beyonce has my vote.
Ted.....are you butt-hurt because mommy is about to throw you out of her basement?
Dude, she's 20. My grandma looked much better when she was her age.
someone has daddy issues...
I'm sold. Buying her CD. She is working hard for my money and she gets it (plus i like her music). In all honesty, we are not seeing any nudity. The parts we are seeing is the same as what other female singers have done in the past (Madonna, Cher come to mind).
but Cher and Madonna could SING!! HELLOOOO???! is everyone oblivious to the fact that she has no talent? SHE CAN'T SING!! sure, great writers,and LOTS of other distractions to have us overlook her lack of talent.
....as are most of the so-called singers of today.
I don't have a problem with this per se. The Sharia Society of prudes in America keep vilifying human nature with one prosecution after another, week after week, another 18-20-something being arrested for having relations with a 17 yo guy who's off doing high fives for his choices until a squeamish prude Mom gets involved and calls police.
What I don't think is appreciated here, is that frankly, public nudity is not the norm, and we don't need someone barely out of diapers trying to change perceptions. Maybe when she grows up, say 30's 40's, see what grown ups have to say about changing norms, not a young twit who hasn't had the chance for any wisdom or appreciation for the world, history, traditions, and norms. Thanks, twit, but no thanks.
I do wish aliens would abduct this useless, talentless twit. I vomit in my mouth every time I see that goofy face. Same with her stupid freaking father. A world without idiot celebrities would be such a nice place.
Anything for attention. Daddy didn't cuddle you enough when you were younger?
And now the world has proof! Nobody believed us when we said Beiber was a girl!
Well, here's your proof!
The hypocrisy here is astounding. If she were to bust through your wall on a wrecking ball butt naked, every man....and most likely every woman....would drop trou. If you say any different, you're a dirty, lying scoundrel.
Well, I dogged out Miley in threads when she came on the VMA's. That rear looked sloppy and she looked tore down. That was my opinion. Now I must say, the boyish look helps her, and yeah you are right, if I were not old and married I would tap that.
OMG DROP TROU??? Is that like, trou as in, trousers! That's fuking brilliant!!! Sloppy rear!!! You guys have to stop, I'm trying not to burst into laughter at my desk here...
I would sue her for everything I could personally.
Then buy a bigger house.
Take yourf****** medicine, m0r0n... nobody cares about this vacant 5lut...
I do, and It would seem so do you for you are checker her out via this article, likely watched her video and took time out to comment on this post.
Oh God, this is SO BORING! This little twit will do anything to cover up her minimal talent. Heck, if someone's that desperate to see a nude woman, look on the internet. No need for this boring, boring garbage. Cyrus the snoozefest.
Jeez..did she get those veneers from Matt Dillon on Something About Mary?
This chick seriously has issues. She is ugly, she can't pull this kind of performance, she just doesn't have the body or the looks, and yes, she is a wreck..
I agree! She's a track wreck waiting to happen. She'll crash and burn like LL, AB, JB and a few other "no talent" trash wannabees. Who ever got the bright idea to compare her to Sinead O'Connor, Madonna, etc. must be on something! Madonna was edgy but had a really good voice, rhythm and could dance. O'Connor had a hauntingly beautiful voice, she just never knew when to close her mouth. Nothing wrong with having an opinion, but intelligence is what allows one to use discretion in using that voice. Miley is a cartoon trying to go porn...NO CURVES, NO ALLURE, NO TASTE AND DEFINITELY NO CLASS!
I as a red blooded American male I strongly disagree She is lovely and has just the right amount of curves such that as she ages her fear of gravity y shall be slight compared to more buxom ladies who start to flop way to early. She is fit and fine:)
Fap Fap Fap
get off on little girls who look like little boys, do you?
OH MY GOD!!!!! that was DISGUSTING!!!! i can NOT believe she did that!!!!! i mean WHAT was she THINKING????? licking that sledgehammer like that!!!!! that thing was FILTHY!!!!! on the other hand....seriously people. there was NOTHING wrong with that video.the song was actually one of the better ones i've heard from her and as others have pointed out..there have been worse videos out there.but because she has grown up (key word GROWN) in front of America people think it's terrible. i just wonder what anyone would have said if say Rhianna or Lady GaGa were on that wrecking ball??
She needs to put some meat on those bones. Maybe in a couple of years she'll fill out.
Maybe it would help if I boned her with my meat!
Not bad.... I want some popcorn with my pop porn...
That's not bad.
Earlier, Miley stuck her ass out and made an ass out of herself. Now, she's going "all the way". I hope she stops this immature behavior before she goes all the way to the bottom.
"I hope she stops this immature behavior before she goes all the way to the bottom." –.........Well, she just released a new video of her swinging on a wrecking ball totally nude, licking a sledgehammer, and the wrecking ball chain too. All nothing to do with the song, so IMO, that behavior reached pretty close to the bottom. Since she did the naked wrecking ball thing what else can she do now to shock everyone? She reached pretty high with that, all that's left is.......p0rn.
BTW I find it really annoying that everyone is on here calling Miley a sl-ut and every other horrible name, yet when a male singer releases vile music talking about women as if they are piece of meat for men to use to satisfy themselves, noone says a fuking word and instead people come to that man's defense!? What universe have I landed in? This is typical double standards, women are not allowed to be se-xual because that makes them wh-ores, but when men do it they're just boys being boys! Oh the agony!
There was an article recently about how to talk to your children about Robin Thicke. I told mine that sometimes cousins marry and it's sad.
LOL! Kids, we need to have a talk about something....
You know what you call a key that can open a lot of different locks... a MASTER KEY. You know what they call a lock that can be opened by a lot of keys... a SH1tty LOCK. Sometimes life just isn't fair.
What part of she's a 5lut don't you understand? Let me put it this way... Not only is she a 5lut... She's a vacant, inconsequential, talentless 5lut. Is that 5lut enough for you?
@Rob/Troy – Enjoy your life of mastur-bating to porn on the internet. You sound like a pretty sh!tty key to me.
I guess she's into big balls? Go get em girl!
Next stop, commando in public.
Ok, nice vocals, good singing even nuanced at times. Even though the nudity isn't essential, it isn't grotesque or in your face. Theatrically and symbolically, it fits. She is young and healthy and fully expressing herself. Let her. More importantly, when your own child asks about "the birds and bees", be ready to discuss it instead of suppressing it.
If you stop over reacting to it, she will simply stop doing it.
People didn't seem to get as offended when Amy Winehouse was singing about Rehab which in some ways was more troubling....
"All I wanted was to break your BALLS" would be so much more honest!
We have all seen worse video's than this from Rhiana and Beyonce. Miley has a great voice and great stage presence she is young and is keeping her self at the top of the charts I say good for her! Beyonce has an incredible voice and doesn't need to shake that big booty of her in every video but she does and you know why.....IT SELLS!!!
When you are butt ugly and can't sing or dance, I guess getting naked is the next logical step...
The saddest thing about Miley's futile attempt to imitate Madonna or Sinead O'Connor is her influence over young naïve teenage girls. This shallow level of 'talent' and gratuitous displays of nudity for the sake of shock value is just dumbing down youth. As if they need any further dumbing down.
miley gets naked...oh, THIS is something new!
The only thing I got out of this video is confirmation that in true hillbilly genealogy, her teeth are too big for her skull.
Finally someone agrees with me....she looks just like a horse with those teeth. I have always thought there was something incredibly unflattering about her. What a horrible way to display a major flaw in a video. Close up of the heinous face was definitely not necessary.
I think she looks odd too... She has a killer bod and pretty skin, but her face is not attractive! I have always said the truly beautiful women would look good with a shaved head... not her! I didn't mind the video, it wasn't too risque`, but she has a terrible voice.
Herr teeth look like chicklets.....tombstobes. Her gums are huge too. Bad hair.
Can SOMEBODY get me a decent keyboard!
The song has been ruined by her nakedness! Such things should be left to the privacy of your own home!
Well, a lot of people are talking about her, but I don't hear them saying "Wow, what a babe! Her body's gorgeous and her face is so attractive. I'd like to lick her decals off."
Maybe she needs to concentrate on being a musician instead of going for the burlesque queen image, since she actually has musical chops? Joni Mitchell was cute too, but she didn't need to show her fanny to sell records.
so sad, she is starved for attention
"starved for attention" Have you been living in North Korea? She hasn't stopped getting attention since the VMA. This is the PR move of the century, so far. Beats me why.
She will sell music for a short time, until the novelty wears off, then she'll go into Britney Spears mode, doing insanely stupid things for attention before the media, except for the occasional tabloid begin to ignore her every move.
In other words, she'll make twenty million a year and live like a queen.
the media wants her every step of the way.
I wish the media would focus on truly meaningful issues – there are so many little known young people trying to do good....not focus on some stupid idiot everyone hope would just leave the planet...
Spinal Tap all the way ...
She is disgusting. No looks, no talent, No class. Worse than Gaga and Madonna. At least they had talent. She is more annoying than the Kardashians. I hope she puts on her clothes and goes away. But I know the media will keep her in the news. Too bad.
Well, the media and guys like you who can't let it go. She's the most famous person in the USA right now. She seems a bit scrawny to me, but so do the One Direction girls. I guess scrawny is in this year.
Pablo, where are you going? You cannot go across the border. It is closed ... like your mind.
"She is more annoying than the Kardashians" – NO one can be more annoying the that F-up family !
Eh?! Didn't I call it? Next stop, the green room.
Remember girls, twerking only leads to p0rn.
You're an idiot.
This phrase you are using, "green room?" I don't think you know what it means.
I like her music, most of it. I like this song when I heard it ,before seeing the video. But seeing her videos have ruined the music for me. As a parent Daddy and Mommy need to have a talk with this girl. She seems to be heading down the wrong path like some of the Disney Darlings have. She seemed to be such a sweet wholesome girl at one time but now I don't see that. Whoever is advising her should be fired before it is too late.
My god, that girl is such a pig.
Here Piggy! Here Piggy, Piggy!!
make sure you have an urban dictionary and are able too write the same sh-t 7 million ways and I guarantee
you will be a millionaire in no time....
I like how miley cyrus breaks down conformity with her ball
You kids need to learn to text each other. Oh yeah, the teacher has your phones. Pass notes or something.
Women have always known that their body is 95% of their value and most important asset they have and now are marketing it to their advantage. I like that and so does every man on this planet. Thats what a woman is for and more power to them.
Every man knows that their wallet is 95% of their value. Women love that and that's the way it was meant to be.
Men have always known that their wallet is 95% of their value and most important asset they have and now are marketing it to their advantage. I like that and so does every woman on this planet. That's what a man is for and more power to them.
Oh look! there's daddy's little girl again. There's goes another idiot!
The songs is not half bad. I would listen to it if it was played on the radio but her image has really gone down the tubes. I don't know if she's doing this dumb stuff on her own or if she hired Tom Cruise's old agent. She doesn't need to do this.
I like the song too Tim. I also like watching videos of the artist's vision/interpretation of how the song moves them. Miley goes within a reasonable limit here. I will definitely watch again, I like songs that are expressed with a bit of passion, conviction by the artist. And her vocal range is well showcased, The comparison to Sinead will hopefully end with this video though, I really would not like to hear her express her political and social views. But if she does do that sort of thing – She has that right.
What a waste of time, effort and life. Loser!
For some reason she makes me want to puke.
It's called the green eyed monster.
I feel sorry for anyone who can't see that Miley and Bieber are the same person. I saw it coming a long time ago. Genius marketing.
Who cares about this ugly, little, naked strumpet. Her tongue looks like an infected salamander and her head looks like a weasel caught in a vise. She is cheap and disgusting, which is what many of today's "entertainers' must resort to for lack of talent.
HA! I wish you would tell us what you REALLY think!
Can't get that tongue off your mind, eh?
Miley Cyrus lives around a would of 'yes' people. Celebrities of this magnitude often do. When all they hear is 'yes', they believe the world to be very different than it actually is. Miley thinks she is 'making history', while all she is doing is embarrassing herself and sending the wrong message to so many young girls.
Okay, I have the same problem with this as I did the VMAs and some of her other works. I'm not hating on Miley, I'm not... thinkg of it like constructive criticism. Honest, if I had heard this song on the radio, I'd think, "wow, phenomenal, very well done". The voice talent is there, the lyrics are there, the moving message... and then the video seems just the opposite of the message. (At least at VMA her actions kind of fit the music/message, but still.) It's almost like she's purposely going out of here way to be contraversial... it's one thing to be edgy, another to be punkish, and another to be straight up bad***... but it practically screams debauchery when so painstakingly going out of ones way to force themselves to stand out. The message of the song is that somebody left, they wrecked her, she's scarred and broken-hearted... yet, the video seems just the opposite... look at me swinging naked, look as every chance I get I try to show off my prosterior... check me out as I lick the head of this sledge-hammer!? Perfect example, take this exact same song and imagine it done by Katy Perry, or heck, even Lady Gaga... the video would be worlds more tasteful... and even if Lady Gaga were naked, she'd at least cover areas up with plaster, glitter, etc... being creative. Just like the VMAs... it wasn't creativity as much as it was a lack there of ending up with a very weak positive impression, and a very strong negative one.
Miley has to ask herself... several years down the road, how does she want her career legacy to be remembered? As an artist that's loved and revered... or as one that people loved to hate? Even Eminem, who tried being as contraversial as possible I think eventually realized that and started crafting a "bad boy" that still worked and that people could relate with, rather than just constant, "look at me, I'm going to give you a headache time and time again".
I wonder how the grip felt who had to clean the skid marks off that wrecking ball prop?
People are really upset about a 20 year old girl acting se-xual for attention? Duh, that 's like, what EVERY 20 year old girl is like! Se-xuality is not to be feared. Yes it is wrong to market se-xuality to children, however there is a great big "blurred line" on this issue. It should be about female empowerment and not condescending (eg when a man tells a woman how she should feel or behave). I find this video much less offensive than the forementioned song by the loser Robin Thicke.
This girl is desperately trying to stay famous. Alas, it will not last. You need actual talent to stay famous for the duration. FLASH IN PAN.
That didn't stop Madonna. Miley Cyrus is crying all the way to the bank.
lol.. you obviously pay no attention to the “stars” of today. Most of them have no talent and have been around for some time now.
"This girl is desperately trying to stay famous" Notice that you are still talking about her weeks later? It's working well.
I was with her until she started having a orgasm riding the wrecking ball and licking the hammer. Sort of takes all the emotion out of the song and totally unnecessary.
Yah. She's not on drugs. Ever.
She looks just like Justin Bieber!!!!!!!!!!! LOLOLOL
My daughters still like her even though she isn't Hannah Montana anymore, but watching that video gave me a creepy feeling because she is very attractive, but I have flashbacks to watching her with my daughters as Hannah Montana. Yuck.
she is not attractive nor pretty. these stunts are the only way to get attention.
I never thought there was a market for skinny-white-girl-construction-porn. And I still don't. Bleh.
Bob the Builder is into her.
It is now proven how lost she truly is.
I think that, this is a big crying for help , i think that she is very lost, where is her parents ? How is she going to be in 5 years ? i do not think she will be with us in 5 years, please someone help her... Madona should call her because this one is going nowhere and look very very lost.
She is young and hot, face the money grab, stupids. Heres a flame fat chick haters your all chubby idiots/ To the reply, feel the burn liberal chicken sucker.
She's 20 years old. And her parents are encouraging this. Don't feel sorry for her, just think of all the money she is making and wasting while other people struggle to make ends meet.
Any of you working on basic English skills? Room for improvement there.
Stop giving her attention. She's a train wreck.
I liked it. As a professional marketer, she is receiving exactly what she's set out to achieve... attention. Madonna did the same when 'Like a Virgin' came out (though slightly more clothed). It's not about anything else other than notoriety. Good or bad, we're all talking about her and that's what sells songs... period. Let's face it, if she wasn't naked, I probably would never have watched (hey, I'm a guy and I can admit it). That said, from a marketing and PR stand point, her handlers have nailed it. Let's now see how long she will last before she joins Lindsey, Brittany and the others who fall off the edge as soon as the fast lane catches up with them! For what its worth, I kinda liked the song too (What? There was a song as well...LOL!)
I certainly hope the young woman is saving her money. She is rapidly running out of depths to sink to and the world is full of new faces (and bodies) some of whom can actually sing and dance. Poor Miley is a soon-to-be-has-been.
Under a rock? You promote her today. Tomorrow you will tear her down, perhaps with the same wrecking ball from the video.
This song was so lame. Fake and lame.
NASTY, pointless, talentless, little piece of trash.
I thought the song was good, and 80 of the video was good but things like licking a sledge hammer added no artistic value and just detracted from the video. That could have been an awesome video, but there parts that really were just not need and did not fit with song. The nudity was tastefully done I thought and stayed within the artistic realm.
She's become nothing but an exhibitionist hussy.
George Orwell never mentioned this in 1984!
This was leading up to it
Eat your heart out, Big Brother! Watch THIS!
Nice song . Why do I feel like a pervert after watching that ?
Yep – total tool. She really does look like Bieber in drag and her musical efforts are so contrived it's not even funny. She's putting it all out there to try to sell her music because she must know on some level that her music can't stand on its own. Funny thing is she hasn't realized that her looks can't sell it either other than to kiddie fiddlers.
Yea that must be it....
What's with the boots?
Nothing compares to Sinead ' O ' Conner. Especially not Miley!!!! I believe it's an insult to Sinead. Just saying.
You know who has some real talent... Is that Bruno Mars...
Well, she has a nice body, I'll give her that. But that's about all she has.
I must be getting old... nothing.
I see daddy issue's... Love me daddy issues...
What's with her licking fetish. I mean seriously, even for a lame video the hammer licking so out if of pace. First time I have heard a whole miley cyrus song. Glad it will be the last,
Crap voice, all auto-tune. Terrible person, you can just tell sometimes, like with Paula Deen. A floozy and a dumb one at that. Next.
ummmm ..... so what? a) she isn't showing anything, well anything she didn't show on the VMA awards
b) personally I see the artistic appropriateness of the nudity. It is a contrast between the strength of the
wrecking ball and the vulnerability of the nudity. So ..... I don't see what all the hub-bub is about.
Totally agree. Personally, I found licking sledgehammer disturbing; no problem with nudity at all.
Well, if what she is after is publicity, she's done that and more. Everyone is talking about her and I doubt she cares whether it's good or bad. She just wants her name/face out there. She has a pretty face but she's become a train wreck lately. Like Bieber and Lindsey. I wonder, will she look back on this time, 10 years from now, and be proud of it, or not?
It was an OK video. I honestly think it would have been MORE effective with her just in the underwear but; that being said the nudity was more tasteful than the VMA performance.
Good grief! Why doesn't she just go ahead and make a few porn movies and get it all out there with no room for doubt. She is disgusting.
I'll watch it.
So I assume you are a virgin who has never had an "impure" thought.
Why the hell not.
I'd hit it.
Man her wallet is just filling up with money. No matter what she does now there is an article about it. The people who hate it are just giving her more press and more money.
What the heck is it with this girl? She is being a total fool lately. You can't just morph from Miley Cyrus of Hannah Montana to some wannabe Madonna or Lady Gaga overnight who incidentally are a way out of her league.
Give it up while you she still has some shed of integrity (barely)
The takeaway for me from this is how much I loved this song by Sinead O'Conner when this came out. It was nice to listen to it again. Miley has a nice voice, but I think she is giving in to the industry or her own idea of the music machine. There is no comparison, other than she copied the idea of a closeup.
I agree, I haven't listened to Sinead O'Connor's song in quite a while, and had never seen the video before. The emotional content of the video really added to the song, she's really powerful both vocally and visually.
The Cyrus song, meh. Vocally it was nothing special, the visuals didn't do anything, the nudity and sledgehammer licking was out of place, all the video did was show a literal wrecking ball, no allusions, no real emotion, no thinking, no thanks.
Hopefully the sledge hammer was rusty, she'll get tetanus/lockjaw, be out of the news for an extended period of time, allowing us to be free from media exposure to her idiotic, infantile antics.
Really ???? "dlws8607 She DOES NOT look like a 12-year-old boy. She looks like a female in her peak physical state. The only ones I suspect who are throwing a fit are females who have never looked so good and feminists, who probably fit in the first group anyway."
I am fit and look damn good but yet, I don't have to go naked to show people that I am either. I have more respect and common sense. And you are a typical little boy who can't see past the naked form.
Miley Cyrus gets naked for 'Wrecking Ball' ride, that would be like child porn. Yeah I know she is an adult but I still see her as a kid.
Says more about you than about her.
This girl has serious mental issues if she's getting her kicks making it with a sledge hammer. Somebody get her some thorazine, stat.
She will never come close to Sinead. Miley is a complete train wreck.
um...if u don't like what u see, change the channel! Grow up & quit judging. Do u feel better about ur life? Noooo! We all live & learn so let her grow up & learn like we all do. And, i'm glad cnn hasnt let anyone post stupid poop stuff on here! Thank u cnn! Finally!!!!!!!
The song is solid and will be a hit on it's own without this video. No need to lick a sledgehammer! No need to ride a wrecking ball naked!
what is she trying to prove ?
I'm Miley Cyrus, and I have no real Talent other than to get naked and act Stupid !
she is not inderage.../let her take it all and play boy will make an offer soon.....we like to see more usa girls get nude...thats usa for you
gutter control please.
Ugh... she's built like a 10 year old. NOT attractive!
Meh. Who cares what this little girl does? Seriously. She's only doing this to show what a se.xual adult she's become. Pretty much like, well, everyone ever. So what. This is not artistic, it is a desperate, sad, over-scripted attempt to stay relevant.
She looks like Justin Bierber
Agreed! She has the body of a boy and the face and hair of Justin Bieber. The two are look-alikes!
Let the girl show what she wants! If she is to show herself, she should try to develop a body first. Too skinny and lack any form to gain any attention. Little girl trying to make something of nothing.
You know what.. She's hot. And most music stars that are hot, at some point, decide to flaunt it. As a man, I certainly don't mind seeing what she has. But lets face it, the music still has to be good or I'm not going to bother watching. And I'm not sure Miley still has it. The last song Miley did that I liked was "Who Owns my Heart" and that was several years ago and didn't seem to be much of a hit with anyone else. I don't think her music is very good anymore.
I was semi-ok until she lickd the sledgehammer. Less is more Miley. Where is her taste. I got a sick feeling.
She can get naked any time she likes. Period.
I think she grown out of her days as a child star. Get off her case already – she can choose whatever path she wants as an artist.
Like her or not for a 20 year old kid, last year she was worth 150 million. Like she cares what anyone thinks....if her career lasts another year or whatever she is worth more than any of us ever will be!!
And this is how we decide what a good person is?? How sad.
Please stop reporting on this no talent little s!ut.
Miley, nothing you do is "art". Last I checked striping, twerking and simulating masturbation do not fall under "artistic expression". I have yet to be able to claim lap dances as a tax write off and until I can, you will be nothing but a desperate little tramp, looking for some kind of attention to make up for the lackluster parentling skills of your mommy and daddy. Girl, get some help before you self implode. You are not special and not immune to going the way of the Lohan.
And who are you to decide what makes something art or not? It is all in the eye of the beholder. I think s-exuality definately CAN be used as artistic expressions. Think about it, when you were 20, your hormones were out of control and you thought about se-x more, right? Well don't you think Miley Cyrus would be going through the same feelings? Does she not have a right to express herself?
Who cares? She needs to stop with the tongue already. She needs to grow up, too.
Well...at least we'll soon have a porn star who can sing a little bit.
Why is she molesting the sledge hammer?
She is starting to look like justin bieber
You know what would stop this madness? Have everyone that comes into contact with her call her "Hannah" – basically reinforce the point that there is nothing she can do to erase the fact that she was Hannah Montana for all of those years. Maybe then she'll stop acting like a maniac...
Either that or she will slit her wrists. I'm hoping this trash isn't all her doing, that she's mainly become a victim of an industry bent on exploiting women, young women, young girls, even, for the sole purpose of lining the pockets of dirty old men who fiendishly watch videos like this while popping Viagra.
Welcome to the start of Miley's porn career.
The VMA stunt was classic for the VMAs and we are all still talking about her. Has anyone talked about Gaga and her upcoming album? No. Miley has the spotlight now. Like her or not, mission accomplished here. The only thing I'm not a fan of is licking the sledgehammer. Otherwise, this is really a beautiful video and great song.
Let me guess. You're either a Belieber, a 12 yr old girl with no taste in music or a creepy pedo with no taste in music. I'm guessing the latter.
So, obviously you aren't a fan, but with your comment you took yourself to the level that you believe that this artist is at. Trash. Really, that was your profound comment? That I'm a Bieber and a Pedophile? (PS: Miley is over 21). How lame, hateful, and uneducated.
Miley has a brilliant team of marketers who are doing a great job. They obviously fooled idiots like you.
Since I've seen this video today, I've been watching it over and over again, because it is beautiful. The sound is contemporary and full of heartbreak. Something to relate to. That is what music is about!
Everyone here thinks she is going to take this awful turn like Brittany and Lindsey... but I don't think she will. She has a strong father, great roots, and is taking this "scandal" all the way to the bank.
Good for her! She isn't Hannah anymore.
I 2nd the YUCK.................................................... she's showing the reason why one should look at other career options. her voice is week and her and Justin could be twins YUCK
waiting eagerly for the coke overdose
Can somebody please tell her that SHE LOOKS LIKE A 12 YEAR OLD BOY AND NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT SHlT?
She DOES NOT look like a 12-year-old boy. She looks like a female in her peak physical state. The only ones I suspect who are throwing a fit are females who have never looked so good and feminists, who probably fit in the first group anyway.
Yeah, actually she does look like a 12 year old boy. Justina Bieber's twin!!!
Will we get to see inside her Uterus this time?
LOL! Eventually they will have to start shoving cameras in orifaces to be "edgy"!
her career in ten years or less will be a wrecking ball
The sledgehammer represents the constant nagging women like to give their partners. The licking of the sledgehammer represents her love for nagging.
Ooooh Wow! That's deeeeep! :/ She is wasting her talent and her youth by reducing herself to a disease infested porn star.
She's got a good voice but she looks just like Justin Bieber.
Don't know if that says more about Miley or about Bieber.
Looks like the Biebs! I thought the same thing!
Yikes, Say it don't spray it!!! This will sure give her dad an achy break y heart, if it isn't already after that horrid VMA performance!
Miley Cyrus has earned herself a South Park episode....I certainly hope that Trey Parker and Matt Stone will realize this and deliver.
South Park already predicted what would happen to Miley in the episode they made about Britney after her break-down. They sacrificed Brittney for the corn harvest and then at the end they see a young Hanna Montanna Miley and start singing the anti-christ song. They knew she would be next.
The meaning of this song is completely lost due to the nature of the video. Innocence went out the window as soon as the song cut away from her face. Video Fail!
Thought the song was ok in the quiet moments and the nudity was tastefully done. The licking of the hammer was uncalled for though. She like hundreds before her are trying to shock their fanbase, but America has pretty much seen it all. From here on, I hope that Miley tries to take the classy route and features her singing ability.
Please do not compare Sinaed O'conner with Miley Cyrus. Sinaed and Miley are both awesome but they are not the same……
Comparing Sinaed with Miley is like trying to say Apples and Oranges are the same thing...
Apples and piles of manure actually...
Admit it Miley. You'll matriculate in Durham Winter Semester where you'll warp Coach KKK Court. Then, you'll warp Coach KKK in the locker room. If you'd rather warp Coach Roy in Chapel Hill, you can still live in a 'Heel neighborhood in Durham. Look at a Tri map.
I think she's singing to us.
Please do not compare Sinead O'Connor's and Miley Cyrus's video. Not even close! One was original and actually came from the heart, the other is a copycat and came from her producers.... Can you imagine if Picasso's paintings were copied then compared to the originals? Called a fake, and they have no value....
This is the truest statement on this page! Sinead thought for herself and her music came from within, which is why she has been hit-and-miss with the general public...but always true to her convictions. She was not tailor made to suit an audience by the music executives (and she would have never accepted producing music if they had tried).
Well she can't sing so she has to strip. Maybe she should move to Vegas.
Little girl.. You did not invent the concept of being young and looking good naked.
If you toss your talent away to instead make it about your youth.. What are you taking with you as you age?
Noone finds your young naked body exceptional.
And when its gone..You will know you tossed away the real thing for the fleeting thing..
the years lap up your youth and
your cool streams are running dry
as you begin to lose your edge
rivers are shrinking, and
beds are cracking,
revealing the debris of triumphant
juvenescence once hidden beneath
a surface you used to call smooth
So she's naked. Who cares? Why is nudity such a big deal? You can't really "see" anything anyway. Grow up people.
In that nudity is no big deal, got any nude pics?
Shes wants to make the ball disappear
Someone needs to egg her, it would be classic.
She licked that sledge hammer like it was me.
Sorry...NOT a matter of if, but when.
Stop reading, watching, buying and commenting and she will go away.
They really sad thing though is she'll be replaced.
Miley, take a hint...everyone is watching to see you hit the wall on turn three. Kind of like NASCAR.
Just a matter of if, but when.
What ever happened to good music?
The record labels turned mainstream music into a product that is geared towards lowest common denominator.
I guess when you don't have talent, you get naked for attention! If she relied on her talent, she would not have the need to take off her clothes. Grow up girl!
For her next video, she will include footage from her colonoscopy.
It's been done already. She'll go for something new, like a kidney biopsy.
I'm very critical of Miley's new style, but this song is definitely her most powerful to date; and I love it for that exact reason. The video doesn't disappoint. I think it is far more classy than her last one; but I still feel the best scenes were the closeups. I don't think she had to lick the sledgehammer or ride the wrecking ball, especially in the nude, in order to get her point across. The raw and real emotion in those closeups is why admire the song and the video. Though, to keep my point of view balanced, I do think she, again, went down the provocative route for more attention and views; which, I feel, distorts the quality of the meaning she emphasizes in her lyrics.
miley you must have low self asteam ur belittleling young woman everywhere its women like you that give men afalse sense of putting woman down
She looks like Bieber fer chrisakes
I'm not a fan... or a fan of her twerking incident at the awards, but this is kinda awesome.
She has the body of a sickly 40 year old, it's nasty. I hoped her VMA trash was the last we'd see of her, but she aims to annoy.
It's actually the string of spit between her teeth that bothers me. The rest is just ridiculous! She's got a lovely voice; why she wastes it on these pathetic stunts is so sad. It's like Matisse painting with mud. What a waste!
To be honest I wrote her off after the Music Awards.. She could made a Chart Topper as good as Madonna right now and I still know she is not worth it. either she is on drugs, or she is a product of the system that surrounded her father that exploits women and should not be induced into such situations as what she did.
What system that surrounded her father exploit women?
Hey, I love to look at naked women. I think I'll pass on this one, though. Yeck.
Wow, the close up of her face shows all her girlish features. Someday she will be a pretty woman. Not there yet imo.
Why are you giving the kid so much exposure? Seen enough... Enough of her!
When you have no talent you have to show your ass to get attention
The only thing I would like to see is the top of her head as she does her duty.Just like she did on that sledgehammer.
The only thing I would like to see is the top of her head as she does her duty.Just like she did on that sledgehammer.Miley virus is at it again.
"When you have no talent you have to show your ass to get attention" Is that how you get by? Tell us more? Did you dance to Daft Punk with your cheeks showing to get your job?
not really a Cyrus fan, but I will have to admit she sounds very good in this song
I watched an interview with her on t.v. after music awards and she sounded like she smokes a pack of cigarettes an hour, plus she was talking at 200 mph. she had to be high. Can you say lip sync.
Ummm... I like truly like the song... Imagery as well is complimentary at best to "the suggestion..." What I couldn't get over was the extraordinary amount of saliva a.k.a. SPIT and that rather coated tongue! YUCK!! Pull BACK from that mouth on Cameras 1,2,3,4 and ALL!! #foamingstill ?
Shoulda twerked Hannah in Montana not Idaho
Shoulda Reported Abuse
SHE LOOKS LIKE A BLOW UP DOLL. DEFLATES WHEN SHE FARTS!
That is one high-end (sic) blow-up doll you got there
She is annoying. She is as bad as the Kardashians and she won't go away. I guess the media will keep us informed of every move she makes for the next 10 years.
Sad isn't it....
Really all you can focus on is that she is naked? You don't even see any thing. it is blocked by her arms and wrecking ball. Can't you see how deeply hurt she is in the words and tears>?
Tears? You mean the obviously fake tears?
Her nudity was blocked, yes, but it was clearly something she was wanting viewers to focus on. Otherwise she wouldn't have agreed or asked to do it. The nudity, licking the wrecking ball chain and sledgehammer was strange and made no sense. Those behaviors didn't have anything to do with the song.
I find that its amazing that I don't care for todays music...but this cyrus gal is really amazing...Good for you Billy...
Plz delete all fat hack hoe comments.
