Miley Cyrus might've torn down more than a few walls with her "Wrecking Ball" video.
The 20-year-old pop star has been accused of many things in recent weeks - including scarring the minds of children with her August performance at the MTV Video Music Awards - but she's now being fingered as helping to remove a landmark from a Michigan college campus.
According to CNN affiliate WZZM, Grand Valley State University has decided to remove a giant pendulum sculpture on its main campus after some students tried to re-create Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" music video. In case you somehow missed it, the pop star spends part of the top-viewed video riding a wrecking ball in the nude (she does have shoes on, though).
The sculpture was installed in 1995, and it's not uncommon for students to climb on it, WZZM reports. But lately, "several students climbed on the ball naked" in presumed attempts at copying Cyrus' video.
But it sounds like it might not be gone forever - the university's associate vice president of facilities services told WZZM that the ball was taken down "so its structural integrity could be examined."
"We've been reviewing this over the last couple of weeks, trying to decide whether we really need to look at structural integrity of the installation," the VP said. "We decided to have the ball removed and put into storage for now."
Some GVSU students are protesting the sculpture's removal, and gathered Tuesday night with chants of "Wrecking Ball!"
If only Miley Cyrus could be placed in storage.
How do kids get into college being Miley Cyrus fans? I mean, aren't they supposed to be of "above average" intelligence? Their taste in music says other wise.
With a screen name like "Amboy Duke" you certainly have no room to criticize the musical tastes of others!
Ted is an "OK" guitar player, but he really sucks as a songwriter! Even Miley writes better songs than Ted Nugent!
She's selling crack near the schoolyard

Did you see the part of the article where it says she got fingered,lol
that's as far as it goes with Miley–12 years now right?
Don't sniff the rope!
Achy Breachy heart no 1 for months
Leave miley alone she is a great singer. i bet u if it was one direction or justin bieber you would love it but a pretty young female like miley cyrus yall must be ashamed. im in 12 grade and my baby sister loves her and she is in fifth grade. every body is ignorant if u have a problem with a great singer like miley. KEEP DOING YOU MILEY :) Everyone just SWERVE and go talk about justin or one direction they are scaring EVERYONE with their horrible copied music. COME BACK WHEN SHE IS ON CRACK OR LESBIAN. MAYBE EVEN IF TUPAC IS BACK. FIND BETTER NEWS MAYBE ON CYBER BULLYING OR RACISM IN THE USA.. BYE
No, retard, if you're in 12th grade, YOU'RE THE IGNORANT ONE! When you actually grow up and your brain gets a little bigger and filled out, you'll realize she's just RICH WHITE TRASH, like her old man.
Alright, Oscar, let's slow that roll a little bit. No need to attack or insult someone for an expressed opinion.
That being said, Miley's music is bad. Her singing is barely passable, her lyrics and music are unappealing and generally unpleasant. She's definitely not my personal cup of tea, talent or lookwise and I say the same thing for Justin and One Direction as well.
This is just one opinion droplet in the bucket, though.
Wow Oscar, Im sure you must be so mature, calling a 12th grader a retard n all!
Woah, it's not looking like you're going to graduate high school with grammar like that. And you REALLY need some taste in music.
No matter what people think about why she did it, her song is now on the top of the charts and she is laughing all the way to the bank. That one #1 single will keep her rich for a very long time so get over it.
Why dont you do something Really Different.
Get a toilet. Make sure cameras are on.
Sit down. and Poop for everyone to see.
Now you could be # 2 on the charts. Wow! You are so cool!
And instead of calling her record "Bangerz" she could call it "Ploppers".
Atually, "plopping" is already taken. Check the Urban Dictionary. It's what happens after docking.

I cant access urban dictionary from here, but Im pretty sure I remember what "docking" is and it's totally disgusting!
She is taking advantage of her success and marketing her way to the top! its a business and she is an amazing marketer of her image..... look at blondie... joan jet...madonna.... britney ... kristina.... they all went down this same road and they came out the other side very wealthy....... congrats on her success!
I have a strong desire to bury Miley in a large pile of stink nuggets.
She went from cute, amazing and talented, to "Just another Madona Wannabe"
Hollywood cut and paste personality.
Trash in, trash out
When was she ever "amazing" or "talented"?
I bet that ball smells.
The fact that everyone is still talking about Miley is the reason she hired Britney's publicist...all of you are falling for her evil plan...like Elizibeth Taylor, MJ, Madonna, Britney...all you have to do is something outrageous, then let the press take over...millionaire for life. Everyone criticizing her, just stop. If you were 20 years old and someone said all you have to do is"..." and you'll be famous and a millionaire, most of us would do it. So what teen girls are twerking...they are going to be exposed to the real world eventually. If you let your teen child watch the MTV awards, then you have to know you are exposing them to mature entertainment. If they are too young or too impressionable, don't blame Miley, blame the parent.
100% agree. Your kids, your responsability, not artists, not performers. You teach your kids some morals and hope for the best. Se-x is a part of life and they will learn about it at some stage!
Did you just say that Mtv was "mature entertainment"? That network is Kidz Bop, man. There's nothing racy or "real world" about it. Twerking is what 4th grader's do.
Every month when I can and the Good Lord willing, I send a few dollars to SarahPAC, which as you know is Sarah Palin's political action committee.
Why? Don't you realize you're just fueling the fire by choosing sides? Humans are short sighted, irrational, and unfit to control our world....Sarah Palin is right up there with dear idiot leader.
I am glad that you are willing to give your hard earned money so that Sarah Palin can continue to take vacations on your money. This will inspire her to continue to avoid making a pretense at running for elective office, which is really good for everyone.
And just to stay on topic: people give Miley Cyrus money for not doing anything either.
Sarah pays for her own vacations...unlike a bimbo who has no money for haircuts.
I'm sure you would like to believe that Sarah Palin pays for her own vacations. However, anyone analyzing financial statements from her "PAC" would have to wonder why such a minuscule percentage goes to help other candidates and why so much money flowing into the PAC is really unaccounted for.
To stay on topic: it seems that Miley Cyrus is even better than Sarah Palin for sucking money out of the undiscerning. That's probably a good thing, because both Sarah's and Miley's fans could probably spend their money on worse things.
I don't see any business wanting to hire anyone with a degree from this playground of a college.
Playground of a college? Never heard it called that before. Lol!
Wow way to trash GVSU. It's not like we are the only college with students doing dumb, funny stuff on campus. Maybe you need to go back to college and experience it the right way.....
Way to stereotype all GVSU students. There's always people doing crazy things on college campuses. Obviously you never went to college.
Really, it's a tradition for freshman to ride on the pendulum, and has been since they day it was installed.Didn't you ever go to college and have a little fun? It has been harmless. So some students made a parody of Miley, so what? GVSU is one of the top public schools in Michigan. Trust me, compared to other universities here GV is hardly a "playground."
Yeah, that University has a bad repuation. now the slimy grease ball has been removed for DNA testing to see who the dirty hoes are that got nakid ion it.
I'm with ya GVSU students. I never had the pleasure of going to college, but this is just everyday college antics. I think due to the video, maybe that ball was getting more of a workout than normal? I think this was more of a safety issue. The college said they were going to put it back up. "Hang" in there, guys. I'm sure it will be put back in time. Go Lakers!
Gee Miley are you happy with what an awful example you are to young girls. You made history alright, but not the good kind. In trying to get rid of your good girl image you've gone to the other extreme and come off as a raunchy pig.
The good girl image that you seem to cherish was a Disney product. Even now, her image is determined by hired professionals. Who knows what the real Miley is like, though judging by her recent interviews, it's much closer to her current image than her Disney one.
What's up with the cross-eyed crazy look on the CD cover?!? Miley actually looked at that and thought it was attractive?
Couldn't we just put Cyrus,thicke and all those people at MTV on a plane to russsia,they can stay with snowden,I dont know which of them has caused the most damage to america.
YAY A fellow anti-Thicke person!!! I thought I was the only one!!
Sounds like they had other reasons to remove it. CNN just trying to Make Miley the no.1 entertainment story again. Come back when she's on crack or a lesbian, this isn't controversy.
