Miley Cyrus speaks on 'Wrecking Ball' video

If you think Miley Cyrus' music video for "Wrecking Ball" was nothing but nudity, you weren't paying attention - at least, so says Miley Cyrus.

“I think the video is much more," the 20-year-old singer said on Elvis Duran's morning radio show of her latest release, which has broken a Vevo record and now stands as the service's most-viewed clip.

"If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," she continued.

The song itself is lyrically pretty straightforward, as Cyrus sings about wanting to break down a lover's walls but winding up wrecked herself in the process.

It's the type of pop ballad "everyone can relate to," the singer/actress went on. "Everyone has felt that feeling at some point. If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means it is so vulnerable. Actually, if you look at my eyes I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”

However emotional it was, the video is just the latest Cyrus release to generate a tidal wave of reaction. But, like she said after the fallout from her MTV VMAs performance, she's not doing anything other than simply being herself.

"For me, anything I do becomes it becomes such a big deal," Cyrus said. "I’m just having fun. Whatever people label it as it doesn’t really matter. ... I don’t ever want to be too much like anyone else."

    Well, I suppose that Miley Cyrus simply failed to perform her job properly. After all she is to turn up on a stage and sing her songs no matter what ios happening. If you are sick and simply can't work properly you take a sick day, lose you money but don't go for work. It gets to me that everyone is sympatizing her failing to perform this song Wouls a surgeon burst out in tears during his operating oh a patient, huh?

    It's "Press" good/bad That and "ratings" for MTV That's all it is. It's how they make money. It's all about the $$$$ I agree though that the Gal should maybe tone it down a bit. But other than that she will continue to do what her managers and publishers and labels tell her to. "She is under contract" and owned to a point. but good or bad it's mostley about the $$$ for the people you don't see.

    Miley obviously has talent. Everyone loved her before she made that video! She has a bangin' body and should flaunt it if she wants. Plus she is showing how she was emotionally stripped of Liams love and is heart broken. Leave her be. She is an amazing artist and is making more money then any of you ever will. I respect her more then I respect anyone else. She has the guts to do this kind of video and look amazing doing it.

    Y'all don't even understand the point that she's making in the video. The video symbolizes how she's been broken and stripped of her emotional strength while trying to break down the walls that her lover is putting up. In relationships, when someone keeps putting up walls instead of communicating you wind up emotionally broken in the end. That's what message in the video is. Her being naked is a symbol of her being stripped of everything she believed in about love and relationships. Use your brain people. and she's almost 21 years old. FYI: Her fiance has been cheating on her for quite sometime well before she started twerking and so forth with that January Jones (the woman who doesn't know or keeping secret the father of her child).

    Since Miley Cyrus VMA awards she has been talked and tweeted about so many times. Now that Miley has introduce her new song and video to the world more people are still talking about her. So this article focuses on her new video, which I thought was very out of the ordinary. Personally when I looked at the video I thought that it was going to be nice because it started off with a nice shot of her and the song sounded really good. Nevertheless when I saw her naked and kissing the sledge hammer, I was disturbed because it’s not what I expected.
    Also after reading this article I read a lot of the comments already posted and a lot of people have responses I agree to. I think that Miley is doing a little to much for me especially because little children follow her. I feel like out of respect for her fans Miley could have did a smother transition from Hannah Montana to the Miley we see today. Since Miley just decide to jump into this Nikki/Gaga phase trying to stand out it shocked a lot of people and that’s why she getting so many negative comments. However on the other hand Miley is not being crazy she doing everything right to make money. Miley has people talking about her and that’s makes the people she works with happy.

    Maybe is she didn't go so far off the deep end, Liam Hemsworth would still be engaged to her. If she is wrecked, then she wrecked the relationship all by her little twerky self. He probably fell in love with a totally different girl, and this new one doesn't appeal to him, or to most of us. This girl is on that downward spiral. I wonder how long it is before she crashes and burns? I guess she always has porn to fall back on.

      Contrary to many popular beliefs, it's not Miley Cyrus's job to raise your kids. If your kids aspire to be her then it's your job as a parent to talk to them about why it's not acceptable to do the things she does. Stop blaming your children's bad choices on people who have never even come in contact with them and start taking responsibility for what they do. It's not her fault kids are turning out the way they are, it's lazy parents who don't want to invest the time in their own children to teach them any better so all they're left with is the media to tell them how to act.
      Nothing personal against you or your children if you have any, I just hate when people use Miley as an excuse like that.

      @Kristen – Brilliant comment! I am totally shocked by some of the comments on here. Miley HAS been a positive role model for years playing the good girl role, now she's grown up she's free to do as she pleases. If your kids turn out crappy it's your failure to educate them properly, most likely by just sitting them in front of the TV set instead of TALKING to them. Take responsability for your own lives and stop blaming the TV set!!!

    If you have to explain this:
    "If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," she continued."
    obviously your acting isn't as good as you think. If she wanted people to notice how "broken" she think she looks then she should have put some clothes on. I only saw part of the video on E and it looked ok, not disgusting like her VMA performance

    For those of you whining about this video, I suspect you fall in one of two camps. You are jealous because you never looked as good as she does (or) you are a feminist who wants to control everything females do (and you are more than likely in the first group as well).

    She is an adult. It is not up to anyone else to tell her she cannot do something that is legal. Get over it and grow up!

    She reminds me of the antics that Howard Stern use to say and do which gave him the nickname of "shock jock". She's young and wants to make sure no one forgets who she is and figures by doing these outrageous things that she will be more popular. However, the downside of all that is people can start to think of you differently and parents may not want their young teenagers watching her or seeing her in concert. She's just trying to make her mark but is going about it the wrong way. She may find herself grabbed by some man one night dragging her off to pleasure himself. She really needs to tone down her actions or she's going to be in a huge mess. Already, she was taken off the cover of a one wants to associate themselves with people like that. She either needs to apologize or take the chance that her career, whatever is left of it, remains in tact.

      MAP...they never said it was right, only that it does happens. If you think the way a woman dresses or acts doesn't highten her chances of being raped you are delusional. I'm not saying it is right either, but it does happen.

      For instance, she could have worn clothes for this video and would most likely sold the same amount of sale. But, she chose to expose herself, mostly to a bunch of perverts who heard she was naked in the video. Now a bunch of men and boys are fantacizing about her, some will act on this fantasy and seek her or a more available target out to live out this fantasy in real life, and it doesn't matter if it's Miley, a child, a young woman, or even an elderly woman.

      So, yes it the way a woman dresses and acts does matter and highten her chances of assult. Like I said before, if you think otherwise you are delusional.

      Sure, I agree that a fat, ugly woman in ugly clothes is less likely to be raped. And maybe the image of a naked Miley brings out some violent se-xual urges in some sickos out there, but why blame Miley for that? Im not saying that it's not truie either, Im saying the MEN who RAPE are to blame, not Miley or her se-xuality! Rapists are responsable for their own actions, you can't pass the blame to young women trying to express themselves (however vulgar you might find it).

    I think it's a good and positive move for her career. Miley and Gaga should have a nude-off, and let us be the judge.

    Seriously, the comparisons to Lohan and others are not accurate. I think the latest moves by Miley are very calculated and were decided by her manager and advisors. She's talented and attractive, but not enough of either to compete with her contemporaries. Her biggest challenger will be Gaga - who is more talented - but Miley is somewhat better looking (somewhat) and she is younger. I was repulsed by her MTV dance, but this video has merit. I generally hate pop stars, but I reluctantly will doff my cap to Miley's cojones. Knock these girls all you want, but it is not easy walking in their shoes (or work boots, in Miley's case, naked and licking a sledgehammer...LOL)

      Ofcourse she's lacking true talent. She was "picked" by disney at age 6 (im assuming) for the leading Hanna Montanna role. Not many kids at that age can be proven "talents". Now they made a sh!tload of cash of this little girl and she got all famous, now theres a whole team that depends on her for money. It's a machine, not one person. She feels like she has to sell CD's not just for her own fame and wealth, but to not disappoint the entire production/PR/Staghand/makeup/managers etc etc.

      Miley said she was a Christian, my comment was taken from scripture, the seed that fell on shallow soil that could not take root and be strong. Its a parable.

      Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred,sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” – Matthew 1

    Lets put her behind us shall we? I can't stand these desperate reaches for stardom. You'd think she has all the money she'll ever need, can't she just realize she is finished in the fame business and move on? Far as her 'parents'. Billy Ray never had any talent so he is leaving his dream through her. Sad really.

    Everyone of yall need to just leave miley alone. What she does with her life is her business. She doesnt ask for your opinions nor does she need them. She is a grown women and is just being young. Just because she is a celebrity everyone makes a big deal out of it. She is clearly expressing how the love she had hurt her and how even though she is broken she still cares. Just because she isnt expressing it like "hannah montana" would doesnt mean anything. She not a littlw girl anymore. Wrecking ball is a great song and if everyone would just listen to the lyrics and see how much pain she really is in yall would understand. Lay off her and do something more productive with you life the. Get on a social networking site and do nothing but down on someone. Honestly everyone is against bullying right. Well this is a way of bullying!stop it already anf give it a rest! My gawd yall! Act your age and leave miley alone she is a grown women and this is a free country she can do what she pleases!

    Cyrus obviously hasn't a problem with her recent behaviour or has one she doesn't want to talk about. She's successfully destroyed her 'good girl' image and she might not like her new one as much as she thinks she will. She's trying too hard for someone with little to offer.

    She is a mess. Anything and everything for money and fame. How can the people that put her in these situations and tell her it is a good idea sleep at night. Knowing that she will end up in rehab or worse in the near future. Greed, that is the driving force in todays world. Not doing the right thing but getting paid obscene amounts of money to see just how far a person will sink. Knowing impressionable kids watch her and not caring how they interoperate her actions just shows that those pulling the strings with the money will go to any length to make more and more of it.

Underneath all this butch looking hairdo and semi-naked outfits is a beautiful young woman that is just going through her wild stage since Disney has had control over her appearance and music for the last 9 years in her role of Hannah Montana. Just like the younger Justin Bieber that is getting in the news for negative things, these talented young adults just want to find out what life is about without being under continuous adult supervision and can afford to do whatever they want. I have been watching the Hannah Montana show when my daughters were young and always will remember her as sweet beautiful young girl and not the current wild child she temporarily is exhibiting.

Miley reminds me of a young Madonna, then she does a Brittney Spears, Amy Winehouse,or Linsday Lohan. She's much more calculating than she is out-of-control.
