Miley Cyrus made headlines earlier this week when she went naked in her music video for her new song “Wrecking Ball”.
Miley claims that her nudity was because she’s sad. But we think she just is seeking attention any way she can get it!
The 20-year-old claims her show of skin is symbolic of where she is in her life right now.
In her recent interview on The Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Cyrus revealed that her being nude in the video is a metaphor for how vulnerable she feels inside.
Miley explained, “I think the video is much more, if people get past the point that I’m naked and you actually look at me. You can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds.”
She adds, “The song is a pop ballad. It’s one of these songs that everyone is gonna to relate to, everyone’s felt that feeling at some point.”
In the video a nude Miley Cyrus straddles a swinging wrecking ball, makes out with a sledgehammer and smashes down walls.
The singer said of the video, “If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination a little bit and see kind of what the video really means and the way that it is so vulnerable”.
Miley, who is supposedly still engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth, admitted she was really nervous about exposing herself emotionally on camera, stating, “If you look in 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 even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”
The single “Wrecking Ball” from Miley’s upcoming album Bangerz will be released on October 8, reportedly featuring a collaboration between Miley and Britney Spears.
Most of us have wondered what Miley’s conservative father, Billy Ray Cyrus, thinks of his daughter displaying her nude body.
Bill Ray, 52, said, “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt … a Tux … or a nun’s habit. The song’s a smash … and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent.”
