Miley Cyrus is certainly no stranger to the media lately, and with a comeback single about partying, drugs and “twerking” (We Can’t Stop), we all anxiously waited the second helping from forthcoming album, Bangerz.
To our surprise, Wrecking Ball is a heartfelt ballad, which of course left us even more impatient to see what the video would have to offer. She surely couldn’t put across this bad girl persona she’s miraculously adapted in a song about weakness and love?
Directed by famous photographer Terry Richardson, the video starts off with a close up of Cyrus, staring deep into the lens to connect with the audience in a way we haven’t seen in a long while. She sings the lyrics ‘we kissed, I fell under your spell, a love no one could deny’ whilst crying, and despite the sad, we’re happy to see a more vunerable and emotional side to the 20 year old star.
But of course, this doesn’t last long, when Miley takes off all her clothes and makes out with a sledge hammer… It seems the once Disney star cannot get enough of proving her age and new image at any given opportunity, and obviously dancing provocatively on Robin Thicke at the VMA’s wasn’t enough proof that she is no longer Hannah Montana.
Instead of baring deep emotion throughout like the intro would suggest, Miley is more focused covering her nipples and propping her body in the most “sexy” position for the camera, and completely ruins what could’ve been a simple masterpiece to a beautiful song. Disappointing.
Bangerz is out October 8.
