Miley Cyrus in Wrecking Ball

Miley Cyrus breaks her silence and speaks about one of her latest video clips. In the images of Wrecking Ball, young Miley Cyrus appears naked and with a sensual attitude, showing once again her tongue.

Pop star Cyrus decided to explain why they chose to make the video for her new single, given the numerous reviews. As the artist explains: If people look at her eyes, they can see her sadness. Nevertheless, the making of the video was not easy, as Cyrus said. In her own words, It was much more than an emotional experience.

Disney star says that people only focused on her nudity. The artist argues that if those who criticize her looked beyond the obvious, they would see the vulnerability of the video and focus on what really the song expresses.

After Miley Cyrus’ shocking performance in the MTV Video Music Awards, any movement of the singer is quite the center of attention. Rapper and pop singer Robin Thicke starred one of the hottest moments in the MTV Video Music Awards when Miley Cyrus appeared in a bikini in nude color. The singer has said that she did nothing new and she is surprised by the uproar caused by their performance, which was more than expected.
