Miley Cyrus Rides 'Wrecking Ball' Naked & Makes Out With Sledgehammer in New Music Video

OMG 14

Miley Cyrus Wrecking BallSay what you will about Miley Cyrus, she certainly knows how to make headlines. Ever since her much talked about (and that's putting it lightly) twerking performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, you've just gotta wonder: Is this a desperate cry for help and attention, or does Miley know exactly what she's doing because we just can't seem to get enough of her? Take a look at her most recent music video, "Wrecking Ball," which broke a Vevo record by racking up 14 million page views in less than 24 hours.

Guess there's no such thing as bad publicity, right?

Especially because the video features her riding around on a wrecking ball completely naked. And of course she licks and makes out with a sledgehammer as well. As she strips down to reveal her most "vulnerable" self, again, one has to ask ... is this actually art or just an overt sexual display meant to drive up the page views?

Here is the video, and it's kind of NSFW:

Quite a different vibe from her twerking performance with Robin Thicke, eh? I wish I could say she kept her tongue in control this time around, but ...

As the second single off of her upcoming Bangerz album, photographer Terry Richardson directed the video. A "source" "exclusively" told HollywoodLife.com that "she chose him to direct her video because he’s all about pushing boundaries and making a statement. That’s what Miley’s into right now .... Miley loved the idea of going naked because it suits the song -- she’s showing her naked emotions. It’s her vulnerable side and it’s not something she shows very often, so having nudity made sense."

But don't you think there is a difference between being naked and vulnerable, and making out with a sledgehammer? Some of her poses are so cheesingly (yes that's a word) sexual, it's kind of hard to see this emotional angst and only a girl who really wants to show off her hot body and grind on some construction tools.

And if you're wondering what Dad Billy Ray had to say about the video, well, here's his latest tweet after "Wrecking Ball" came out: "Trying to type, tweet, twerk and ride a wrecking ball naked all at the same time while carrying a sledgehammer is proving difficult ! PEACE." Is it me or is this reaction to his daughter's latest crazy stunt a tad disturbing? Wouldn't any other (good? normal?) dad be completely overwhemled and grossed out by this? Kind of explains a lot, actually.

Well, still, gotta give kudos to Miley for yet again stirring the pot and getting us talking. The page views clearly indicate that we're all simply fascinated/bewildered by the girl. If only we could discuss Nobel Peace Prize winners and cancer researchers with such ardent fervor.

What do you think of Miley Cyrus's latest music video, "Wrecking Ball"?

I actually love the song...and most of the video I liked. I just wished she hadn't turned it weirdly sexual with the making out with the sledgehammer thing. That was too weird. I could have gotten over the naked thing but the hammer was just too weird.

I actually kinda liked it and I'm not a Miley fan. The sledgehammer thing was a little much but the naked part didn't bother me.

I like her songs better now than before. I just don't watch her perform... like ever. I don't even watch her music videos. I tried watching "we can't stop" and I didn't get past the one minute mark. She kinda got embarassing lately. Just watching pics from her performance at the vma has me wanting to cover my eyes. I'm just too embarassed for her even if she isn't.

I like the song, but the nudity was all wrong. The feel was off.

I like the song. But if you look deep into that girl's eyes you see a troubled soul. I'm so worried for her. When people push the limits like she is they usually have a troubled soul.

I saw a comment somewhere that made complete sense. Her being naked shows her vulnerability, the sledge hammer represents destructive love, and the kissing of the wrecking ball chain is her loving something that destroys her. There's a very deep meaning in the video and song and I think its amazing.She's extremely talented.

I like the song. I like the emotion in her close up (although her eye lash clump was bugging me). BUT she basically was humping the wrecking ball and I may not be a guy, but that didn't do anything for me. It was actually really nasty, like rinding her hips on this dirty metal thing. It's like she's trying to be Pink but over sexualize it. Pink made it cause she was badass, sexy badass but not OVERLY sexy. Miley just trys too hard. Yeah, you have a nice body but you are basically prostituting it. I feel sad for her.
