Miley Cyrus has broken Vevo’s most viewed record with “Wrecking Ball,” probably in part due to the nudity.” But the 20-year-old singer revealed that her video is more sad than sexy during a recent interview. Cyrus has now become synonymous with pushing the envelope and won’t stop, yet according to the singer, the video wasn’t meant to push anyone’s buttons.
Amazingly, Cyrus has outdone her MTV Video Music Awards performance, to the shock of almost everyone. When speaking on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, she wanted people to see past the fact that she wasn’t wearing any clothes.
“I think the video is much more [than that],” she said Wednesday via the New York Daily News. “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.”
Within just two days of being posted to the Internet, the video has garnered more than 50 million views. Some think the song is based off of her on-again, off-again relationship with “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth. The two are engaged but never set a date.
“If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record,” Cyrus continued. “It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”
“The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate to; everyone has felt that feeling at some point,” 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.”
Indeed, Cyrus does drop a few tears, but some people are too distracted by her lack of clothing to appreciate the emotion she’s conveying.
