Miley Cyrus Defends ‘Wrecking Ball’ Video: “Look Beyond The Obvious”

Miley Cyrus has spoken out against critics following the release of her video for new single Wrecking Ball (if you haven’t seen it, where have you been?!) claiming that it was an “emotional experience”, in which viewers need to “look beyond the obvious”.

We’re banking on the “obvious” being Miley in the nude, riding the giant metal ball amongst the rubble and licking a sledge hammer…

The former Disney star explained to New York radio station Z100: “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.”

She added: “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… If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record.” 

The blonde haired singer has received her fair share of criticism over the past month (who can forget her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards?) but with Wrecking Ball smashing the record for Vevo‘s most watched video in 24 hours with a whopping 57 million views, we’re almost certain that Miley isn’t bothered.

We’ll have to wait for her next performance to find out…
