Miley Cyrus gets naked for 'Wrecking Ball' ride

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:

    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?

    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 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 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.

    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....

      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.

    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.

      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.

  47. The Doctor


    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 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 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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

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.

    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.

      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.

      "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?

      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 ?

    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.

    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.
