Miley Cyrus defends nudity in ‘Wrecking Ball’
Once again, the most talked about celeb in Hollywood, Miley Cyrus, has spoken up in her own defense, this time over her sledge hammer-licking nudity in her ‘Wrecking Ball’ music video.
In an interview with radio station z100 today, she asked viewers to look past the birthday suit.
“I think the video is much more, if people get past the point that I'm naked and you actually look at me you can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds," the 20-year-old explained.
Seems like the concrete walls weren’t the only things broken in the video…
She continued: "If people can take their minds out of the obvious and go into their imagination a little bit and see kind of what the video really means and the way it's so vulnerable … Actually if you look in my eyes I look more sad than my voice sounds on the record."
One of Miley’s biggest supporters, her father Billy Ray Cyrus, told Entertainment Tonight that he isn’t too concerned about his daughter’s new song and music video.
“It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt... a tux...or a nun's habit. The song's a smash...and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent," the country music singer gushed.
Even R&B talent Ne-Yo is jumping to the star’s defense and revealed he’d be keen to work with the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer in the future.
"You know what? Miley is living her life, man, and who I am to judge?" he told E! News this week.
"Miley, if you're listening, holler at your boy!"
