Miley Cyrus Defends Video, Describes "Wrecking Ball" as Emotional Experience

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Look past the nudity, people.

And appreciate the raw emotion.

That's the message Miley Cyrus is sending in her first comments since "Wrecking Ball" took the Internet by storm Monday, earning over 19 million viewers in two days and once again making Cyrus the most buzzed-about celebrity in Hollywood.

Explained Miley on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show today: "The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate to; everyone has felt that feeling at some point."

"If people can take their minds off the obvious and go deeper into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable."

It's also filled with images of Miley naked and licking a sledgehammer.

"If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record," Cyrus says. "It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song."

"It was much more of an emotional experience."

It's true. There are tears in the singer's eyes, which at least one outlet attributes to thoughts of Liam Hemsworth and that fragile relationship.

As far as her image, the radio hosts named Miley the Queen of Twerking, which prompted a laugh and this response from the "Wrecking Ball" singer:

"For me, anything I do 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."

What do you think of Miley's latest effort to do so?

If you love them the stars pray for their souls. If you are a actress or singer or just someone who needs to get their life in order repent of your sin now before it's too late pray this: Father God, the God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob, I repent of my sins, forgive me Lord God, I know Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour and that he died so that I can have everlasting life. I plead the blood of the Lamb of God over my life, my mind body and soul. Release me Father God from all demonic control, set me free Father God in Jesus name amen amen. Father God I need you to take control of my life from this day forward, allow me to be a beacon of light in this dark place as I will praise and lift your name as I go forth into the world and do your will Amen amen

I agree I used to love her music and her but since she won't keep her close on and her tongue in her mouth I don't respect her. If she wanted attention this was not the right way to do it . If she would have stayed the same kids and adults would look up to her. I like her music for what it's saying not the image

I don't hate her. I worry about her because I think it's a distinct possibility that she's gone mental and will do anything for attention, even if it's harmful to her, her body, her career, whatever.

Getting way out of line Miley by getting nudity

Well if you honestly would not mind one day your child stripping down in front of the world sucking a hammer because they are hurting,and minus the money so its just showing emotion not getting paid,then you better question your parenting skills

I'm a 56-year-old female and I get the video's intent -- heart wrenching - raw emotion. What I don't get is all the negative hype. The video doesn't show any more skin that you would see on Sports Illustrated. I loved the video.

These comments are made by the grudge-holders who were offended by Miley's VMA gig.They are too smalltown to realize that's just show biz.The Miley haters resort to name calling,like she"s ugly, untalented,slut.You know, Playground behaviour.I so agree with you on this beautiful video. Everything is great;Miley's vocals,
Great song,& great concept.The wrecking ball was an original & genius idea.Like you said,powerful & evocative.As for nudity,sure there was some skin but nothing'Private' was shown.It was Artistic &Tasteful.We do see more on t.v.& magazines almost daily.So it seems the prudes(who likely watch porn)are projecting their own perverted view that nudity is dirty onto that Naughty
Miley.Some loser actually said that she looked like she was 'having sex' with a wrecking ball. I Missed that part.
Oh, I Love your Moniker.
