Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" video garnered more than 44 million views on You Tube and broke the record of being the most viewed song on the video sharing Web site. Everyone is talking about how the 20-year-old singer went naked in the video but Miley says that the video is "much more" than striping as she looks "more broken" in it.
Miley Cyrus in "Wrecking Ball"
"I think the video is much more. 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 said in an interview with Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show.
The Terry Richardson-directed music video begins with a close up of crying Miley Cyrus who looks very vulnerable and but as the video progresses we see a fully naked Miley sitting atop a wrecking ball, licking a sledge hammer provocatively. What strikes most is a naked Miley swinging atop the iron ball but the "We Can't Stop" singer has urged people to "take their minds off the obvious" ( here a naked Miley!) and look deeper.
"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," Cyrus said. Sorry Miley, it would be very difficult for people to take their minds off the obvious here!
She then goes on to say that she "looks more sad" than her voice and it was an emotionally draining experience for the singer to do the music video.
"If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience," the singer revealed.
The former Hannah Montana star also complains that everything that she does becomes controversial but that will not stop her from doing what she believes in as she is "having fun" with her life.
"Kind of anything that I do at this point it becomes such this big deal and for me. I'm just having fun, and whatever people label it as, it doesn't really matter, I'm just having fun," the twerk queen revealed.
