Miley Cyrus’ video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ has been called many things by fans and critics, but the singer herself has now cleared the air about the raw — and naked — subject matter and her sad and broken look, in an on-air interview with Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show on Sept. 11.
It’s been a whirlwind of controversy for Miley lately regarding music videos off of her new album, Bangerz, specifically the ballad “Wrecking Ball.” The singer spoke with Elvis on Sept. 11 about the vulnerability of the video and the reason for her sad and pleading expressions while being naked and crying.
Miley Cyrus Admits It Was Hard To Film ‘Wrecking Ball’ Video
With the gigantic success of the “We Can’t Stop” song, video and now-famous VMA performance, the song literally won’t stop, making Miley Cyrus, 20, still super-busy with the first smash single off of her album when the second one, “Wrecking Ball,” hasn’t needed any help in garnering it’s own attention.
“I was actually panicking last night because I felt like for me with ‘We Can’t Stop’ there was all this anticipation and all this time to build up this one single. I have been so busy right now with ‘We Can’t Stop’ still doing what its doing and catching fire, not just in the states, but all over the world. It’s now starting to play here [in Europe] so I feel like I have so much going on,” she said to Elvis Duran.
Even though the buzz about her sexed-up and raunchy “We Can’t Stop” video and performance was the talk of the town — and still is — “Wrecking Ball” holds so much emotion for the star. Miley explained why it was hard to make this video.
“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. The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate too; 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,” she said. “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.”
We can see the undeniable sadness in your eyes, Miley! From being 100 percent naked to crying real tears in the video, we don’t see how “Wrecking Ball” could be any more emotional.
Miley Cyrus : Queen Of Twerking
Before there was sad, teary and naked swinging on a gigantic wrecking ball, there was twerking in “We Can’t Stop,” and Elvis asked how she got to be the unofficial “Twerk Queen.”
“I don’t know how that necessarily happened. For me, anything I do becomes it becomes such a big deal. I’m just having fun. Whatever people label it as it doesn’t really matter. I always want to switch it up.”
We know she loves to switch it up, from raunchily making out with a doll in one video to crying naked in another — and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the fun-loving and provocative Miley!
