Miley Cyrus’ gross new video was directed by Terry Richardson of course

Miley Cyrus

No we are not going to post the new Miley Cyrus video, “Wrecking Ball,” but you can see it here. Chances are you’ve already seen it — Miley is already bragging on Twitter about breaking the VEVO record with 12.3 million views in less than 24 hours. This exclamation sounds impressive, but it’s really not surprising since the vid features a naked Miley bucking and grinding on a wrecking ball. Like, she completely does the deed to the chain. White boobs and tan lines are fully intact. When she is wearing clothes, her rear is prominently arched into the camera. Those moments that don’t highlight her booty often feature Miley licking a sledgehammer. The vid was directed by creepy Terry Richardson, so that should tell you something.

Miley Cyrus

Haven’t seen the video yet? Be my guest. It really takes away from what could have been a decent pop song about a breakup. As CB mentioned to me, Miley could have hired a few actors and sang in the background (sort of like Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” vid). Instead, she decided to get naked and whip out the tongue. Like I said yesterday, Miley doesn’t care what you’re saying about her. As long as you’re saying it.

The song was probably intended to dovetail with Miley’s media breakup with Liam Hemsworth (just wait for it). She does seem to shed a genuine tear while screaming the refrain. But Miley didn’t write this song. No less than five writers are credited with “Wrecking Ball,” and Miley is not one of them. This is more magic from the mind of Larry Rudolph.

Of course Miley’s camp is trying to spin the choice of creepy Terry to direct this mess. Miley wanted to “push boundaries” and “make a statement” about nudity. She was “showing her naked emotions.” She’s so “vulnerable” in this song, you know? Spare me. Miley just wanted to take her clothes off. She and Terry also did a Bazaar shoot along with a another one in his studio. They’re besties now. Yet Miley will bear the brunt of criticism for this video; Terry will continue to be celebrated by fashion. Miley loses her Vogue cover because she’s so raunchy; Terry will continue to shoot for Vogue. They confine him to international issues; but he’s still there.

In other Miley news, she’s on another media blitz in Europe. She just spent 7 hours in a “coffee shop” in Amsterdam. Uh-huh. Miley also appears in the brand new Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J song, “23.” She is rapping. Seriously. And it is awful.

    I can’t.

    • Andrew says:

      I did :(. If she would have worn clothes and didn’t make out with the chain and the sledgehammer, it wouldn’t have been completely horrible with the wrecking ball hitting crap and stuff.
      And I think she sounds decent on the ok song…or at lest she sounds less strained and less autotuned than freaking Can’t Stop. And can I say the close ups of her face singing were really uncomfortable/awful? I honestly think it’s the combination of her teeth and her hair and her ears and she looked like a schoolboy. Ugh.

      • pzc says:

        The song isn’t even half bad, but I just can’t support her particular brand of attention seeking. Also, Terry Richardson is gross and I have no idea why people still want to associate with him!

      • Leigh says:

        Not half bad if she’d behaved like a normal person… but SO disgusting with her writing all over everything and licking everything in sight. Gross.

      • Minty says:

        all of the above. I don’t understand the fellatio with the hammer… ugh. Now, I’m thinking of THOR, and that’s the wrong Hemsworth!

      • Meredith says:

        I agree the song-video would be OK if she wasn’t making out with a sledgehammer. Too bad. Uncle Terry is gross.

      • Dana says:

        Completely agree! The sog and video concept was cool, but the licking and nuzzling were just weird

      • Heebeegeebee says:

        LOL Miley really likes to make out with inanimate objects.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Sadly, I am a little obsessed with this song. I mean, I really like it a lot. But the video is beyond stupid. Damn Miley, I used to think you were one of the ones who would do OK.

      • Bijlee says:

        @paranormalgirl right? I think the song is good. It’s so much better than anything else she’s done. The video is so purposeful in sexualizing her that it doesn’t even jive with the lyrics of the song. People are actually defending uncle terry’s nasty video. His video is uninspired, lame, and disgusting. As per usual.

      • Trashaddict says:

        I cannot wait for the spoofs…..they’re gonna be awesome.

    • Applapoom says:

      I know. Speechless after seeing that. Couldn’t bear to watch the whole thing. Awful. Just awful.

    • Nicolette says:

      I did as well, against my better judgement. Don’t know what’s worse the song, her getting off naked on a wrecking ball, licking a sledgehammer, her budget lipstick or the little string of spittle that keeps showing when she opens her mouth.

      • Willa says:

        String of spittle was gross. First thing you notice.

      • AlexandraJane says:

        TOTALLY distracted by the spit! glad someone else is too!

      • Amanduh says:

        I mentioned it yesterday, but it’s so funny, I’ll repeat it…
        Michael K (dlisted) said, “SALIVA. Bitch, drink some water. You’re thirsty (in more ways than one).”

      • Andrew says:

        Lol! That’s the first thing I noticed too! I was thinking “couldn’t they have edited that out somehow?” Bleh

      • flipflop says:

        Had I known Terry Richardson directed it, I never would have watched the video. I try not to look at anything from him because he’s totally gross.

        I actually thought of Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 You video with the closeup shots of her face, so not really ground-breaking there.

        There was far too much hammer licking and wrecking ball grinding. Blech! It was tough to watch. But, since it’s Uncle Terry’s fantasy, I’m not surprised.

        It wasn’t very long ago that Annie Leibovitz took tasteful pictures of Miley where she was topless, but she was totally covered up. Her dad was outraged and he said that they were mislead and trusted Annie to take tasteful pictures. And yet, Billy Rae is completely silent now. What a messed up family.

      • Kiyana says:

        Lol, it was disgusting, she may as well had false teeth in. Yuk!!

    • Camille says:

      Her latest actions remind me Xtina’s Dirrty era. However Xtina back then was – I can’t believe I’m writing it – more classy. Everything Miley does seem to be vulgar and forced.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Agreed but I remember Xtina being a better dancer and somehow more in control of her sexuality. At least that’s how I remember it-I could be wrong.

        Miley really really grosses me out and embarrasses me in a way that Aguillera never did.

      • Shannon1972 says:

        I think XTina got away with it because she is phenomenally talented and gifted with an amazing voice. I agree that she seemed to be exploring her sexuality and playing with her look, which is normal for that age. The difference is that it didn’t seem forced – she owned it.
        And….we didn’t have to keep looking at her tongue and tonsils.

      • RN says:

        Hmmmm…. No, Christina was pretty scuzzy also. People were definitely cringing looking at those chaps. I think the passage of time has blunted the memory of how awful she was at that time.

      • Eleonor says:

        X-Tina was very trashy at the time, but she had a better coreographer, and better songs. She could pull the dirrt thing better without faking a fellatio every five minutes.
        (and she was more dressed)

      • Trillion says:

        So between this video and Blurred Lines, the take home message to girls is clear: 1. Being talked about is super duper important. 2. Taking off of your clothes is the best way to accomplish #1.

      • Bridget says:

        Dirrrty had way better songs, and there’s no denying Aguilera’s talent. But I would say the biggest difference, image-wise, was that Aguilera’s overly-sexual image was almost aggressively challenging. It was like she was daring you to have a problem with it, and to tell her to her face. Where Miley just comes across like a drunk sorority girl who just wants everyone to look at her.

      • Deedee says:

        I think she could carry it off because of her voice. Miley doesn’t have that advantage.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      “Ooh, I’m licking Thor’s hammer ’cause I’m so wrecked by Liam!”

      Same simulated fellatio, different day, and, yeah, Sinead O’Conner wants her saline back.

    • Seattlemomma says:

      Me neither. Blech.

  2. Anna says:

    Does anyone else think that she’s just effing with Liam at this point?

    • Marty says:

      I think it’s really sad. And wth was with her continuously hitting herself in the face? That was what I found more disturbing that then her blowing a sledghammer and being naked on that ball.

      • Anna says:

        At this point I am all about conspiracy theories. He broke her heart, she hates his guts, HE is holding on to her bc the only thing keeping him off the D list is his brother and his quasi-fiance (oh, and the supporting bit in a franchise), so while he is using her she is trying to torture him as much as possible. It’s far-fetched, I know, but it totally works in my twisted mind 🙂

      • Meredith says:

        @ Anna
        Re conspiracy theory. It sounds good to me. Insightful in a twisted way!

      • j.eyre says:

        Mornin’ ladies. Did you see the brothers’ response to her VMA performance? CHemboy said he didn’t get a chance to see it because he was working and BigBroBoy says Miley “is so full of life and energy.” You have to give it to these boys, they do have each others’ backs – for better or worse.

      • Anna says:

        Miss Jane, this is kind of what I mean – she has given Liam/them every reason to practically disown her and her unwholesome ways (tho Chris did marry a playboy model, so…), and yet he/they are holding off. WHY? She certainly doesnt need them for publicity, esp now. And Liam hadnt seemed into her for a while now.

        On a related note, will somebody please take Miley’s hammer to my head? I have no idea how I managed to get so sick in <48 hrs that I want to off myself.

      • Marty says:

        Aww, I hope you feel better Anna!

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh, baby! What is it? Cold? Flu? Best cold remedy is Hot Toddy – sugar cube in glass, shot of whiskey, fill with hot water, squeeze of lemon. I served one to Mr. Rochester the 2nd time we met for his cold and he married me. It’s that good.

        Feel better, love. I will send the Australian Adonis over to stroke your hair and hold you until you fall asleep. Doesn’t that sound divine?

      • Anna says:

        Dearest Miss Jane, I swear it’s The Plague. Lets see if Asgardian powers can triumph over it…

    • Sabrine says:

      Everyone is watching and talking, millions of hits, which was the goal. She’s gross but very clever. She wanted to get noticed and
      do something to up the ante from the Madonna days and this is it.

  3. Izzy does it says:

    lets talk and write about something else and not give free PR time to these people.

    • janie says:

      I actually like the song… the video is another story. Wonder what antibiotics she’s on? She achieved her goal! She topic of conversation everywhere!

  4. Eleonor says:

    At the beginning I thought it was a copy of Sinead O’ Connor “nothing compares to you” video. I wish I was right.
    I wonder after the horny girl card will be gone, what will she do?

  5. tifzlan says:

    Watched the video yesterday with my boyfriend. We were absolutely disgusted by two things: her being absolutely naked on a disgusting, rusty wrecking ball and making out with a disgusting, rusty sledgehammer. In case anyone misconstrued that as me slut-shaming her, i’m not. Really, we’re both very clean and hygienic people and the thought of grinding a nasty, dirty wrecking ball naked makes our skin crawl.

    Aside from that, i have to admit that the song is quite nice. It’s miles and miles better than We Can’t Stop was, that’s for sure, but she really did sound good. It’s just a pity that she decided to do such an awful video to go along with it. I get that she wants attention and publicity but contrary to popular belief, not ALL publicity is good publicity. At this point, she’s really just become another punchline. I don’t know anyone who takes her seriously because she makes such a fool out of herself, it’s so easy for everyone to mock her too. And that sucks because it really takes away from her good stuff, like this song.

    Also, i kind of was wondering if this song is about Liam Hemsworth? I’m still gonna pretend that it is, even if it isn’t.

    • Steph says:

      pretend away! but seriously, it can’t be about him because she doesn’t write her own songs. but she is still an ARTIST.


    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      I thought exactly the same thing about the hygiene part. I’m far from slut-shaming anyone but it seems so unhygienic to do what Miley does. I can’t even think about it in a sexual way because all I have in mind when I see her sitting on and licking rusty, dirty objects are possible tetanus, blood poisoning, urinary tract ifections and worse. I have a similar problem with what Gerrard Butler regularly does with his one-night stands. People scream slut-shaming, sexual freedom, being passionate etc but when I think about exchanging bodily fluids with complete strangers somewhere in the porta-potty or a club bathroom I don’t see it as passion, sexual pleasure and free love but as possible STD’s, HIV and the whole variety of other diseases. Yuck.

      • china says:

        Miley Virus

      • ParisPucker says:

        —>China…Brilliant!! Miley VIRUS is *spot on*

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        Good one china. The Miley Virus attacks teenage brains. I expect to see similar headlines very soon: “Teenage girl injured – she tried to make out with her dad’s pliers.”, “Young girl broke all her limbs after she fell from chandelier. She was naked.”

  6. Holly says:

    I hate pop type songs, but against my better judgement, and to my ultimate shame, I kinda liked this song. Then the video..I just can’t.

    • akua says:

      you are not the only one…i like that song very much…but she have manage to sezualize that beautiful song

  7. siobhan says:

    I don’t care if she wants to be naked. But saying it is about ‘naked emotions’ is played out. We have heard this from many others. She should just say she wants to be naked because it gets attention or because she thinks she has a hot body.

  8. brin says:

    Uncle Creepy just adds another layer of gross.

  9. Leslee says:

    I can’t with this damn girl I fu*king can’t.

  10. Jess says:

    I kind of like the song, but I don’t understand why you’d want to be naked on a wrecking ball. It must be too high art for me.

  11. Anki says:

    I simply can not understand how the industry continue to support Uncle Terry.

    That’s the real f*cking travesty here.

    • Ai says:

      This!….but then there is the open sexualization of youth and children – to the point where I really wish we had more research on the impact of it to society, youth/children and if it contributes to the child sex offenders etc.

      • La_louisianne says:

        I recently read a book called “So Sexy So Soon” by Diane Levin that addressed this exact issue- the long term effects on both male and female children of growing up in a hyper-sexualized society. It was an interesting read.

  12. Kassie says:

    I don’t remember her acting this way until she cut off her hair. Did she cut off her brains and pride to? #Noshade

  13. pretty says:

    why is her tongue so white?

    Isn’t it like a must to brush your tongue with toothbrush whenever you brush your teeth? it is like..just a natural thing to do.

  14. Bianca says:

    SHE’S LICKING A SLEDGEHAMMER. I don’t think you can get more pathetic and ridiculous than that.

    What sickened me the most though were the comments that her fans posted on Youtube. Like, “OMG can’t you SEE that she’s naked because she’s BARING HER FEELINGS OMG THAT’S SO DEEP!!!!1!!” Yeah, right. And she’s licking that hammer as a metaphore of an iron deficiency.


    • Nur says:

      As a metaphore of iron deficiency? HAHAHAHAHA, that was brilliant!
      I supported her transformation in the beginning but I just cant anymore.. This is no rebellion, just self promotion at its lowest level.

    • JGL says:

      After making out/twerking with barbie dolls & teddy bears, she has moved onto grinding on wrecking balls & licking sledgehammers.
      I’m honestly scared what she’ll do for her next video.
      Maybe she’ll grind on a train so that it can be a ‘TrainTwerk’ sorry, i mean, trainwreck

  15. eliza says:

    Between her ever present tongue and his creepy sexual deviance, they are the perfect match.

    I guess I am a philistine, because just like with Tyler Shields, I do NOT see what is so special about this man’s photography or his skills as an “artist”.

  16. pao la says:

    MIley please just let me rest for 5 minutes.

    with love
    Your dear tongue

  17. epiphany says:

    Miley seems to equate being gross and salacious with being an adult. I know many will argue she’s fine, she’s just young and finding herself, but it seems to me she’s trying just a little too hard to prove how thrilled she is with her new persona. I think Miley’s headed for big trouble.

  18. Samtha says:

    It’s like a Saturday Night Live sketch. Though SNL hasn’t been THAT funny in ages.

    It would have been okay, minus the whole licking the sledgehammer thing. Even the naked wrecking ball part. But the sledgehammer licking pushed it over into farce.

    It took me forever to figure out she wasn’t saying, “I came in like a rainbow…you rake me.”

    • Mo says:

      so glad to see you say that… i thought it said rainbow, too. until i saw the lyrics. and that video – only could watch a few seconds and those i will never get back. ugh

  19. Bijlee says:

    The song is good compared to her wcs. And this video just makes no effing sense. None. I don’t buy any of the crap about vulnerability, rawness, whatever. She’s writhing around licking sledge hammers for Christ sake. It just doesn’t fit with the song and ruins it IMO. On top of that its attempting to elevate terry Richardson and his bullsh-t triple x aesthetic.

    Absolutely disgusting. Does Richardson have secrets on people?? Is his daddy powerful?? Is he a massive whore that has dark secrets of famous people’s kinks??? I mean why the hell is this guy given any sort of credence or respected in the least. Why do people fall for him??? Even Lena Dunham likes him and I figured she would at least be a little more critical since she has no problem criticizing men in positions of power for taking advantage of it. He’s such a creepy d-ck.

  20. Alex says:

    Being naked doesn’t make her edgy. She can’t play tortured artist when she’s been a multi millionaire since she was a kid. If you don’t want to be a pop star, fine. But this hip hop act of hers is so contrived.

    • Daahling says:

      Exactly, it’s contrived more than Britney, Xtina, Rihanna, Ke$ha. It’s the same thing, different packaging.

      I am hardly Miley’s fan, especially after the VMAs and that dumbness called WCS, but I really love Wrecking Ball, great song. I am torn on the video–I am ashamed to admit I thought it was kinda hot in a skanky white trash-Chanel way, but then I start thinking about the director, and that her cash & prizes are on tetanus-covered material, and that’s when I am like, girl…..

  21. dcypher1 says:

    No more miley please make it stop. First the tongue now she’s naked. Oh the humanity.

  22. kingkayski says:

    One thing with Miley,she really has a good voice,i like this song very much,i won’t lie.For me as long as she don’t really show her pussx2 & tits fully,who cares ,she’s young and got a hot bod to boot,it’s nothing we don’t see everyday in those CK adds billboards or Kate Upton tits in baby bikini.

  23. aquarius64 says:

    This director has a bad rep and looks like he belongs on a sex offender registry.
    I’ve heard so much about this video I can’t bring myself to watch. Writhing around nude is one thing…but the sledgehammer…just no. Miley’s getting the Vevo hits because people want to see Hannah Montana buck naked and getting freaky with a tool, not for the quality of the song. (In fact it’s an afterthought.) No one is interested in her as a musician; they now see her as a porn star. The team trying to explain this away as art shows it’s still smarting over the fallout from the VMA “performance”. If Miley and Co. were truly confident about the music they wouldn’t have to go this route. Adele, age 24, has six Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar for her music and didn’t have to raunch out to earn them. Quality is always a good selling point and leads to recognition by your peers. Miley has yet to learn that.

    • Ruyana says:

      Yup, the director reminds me of nothing more than my gross pedophile uncle, who is,fortunately, dead to the relief of every child, boy or girl, who ever had the misfortune to cross his twisted path. I don’t find him edgy. I find him jailable. And Viely Virus seems to have lost her fkn mind.

  24. lisa says:

    i just hate her face

    she has a ton of $, get caps that fit

    • paige says:

      Lisa- i hate saying this about anyone but i totes agree with you.
      to have that long close-up at the begining…god-she is really unfortunate looking…and really why doesn’t someone get her a tongue scraper-it is disgusting..
      i just can’t…
      i will stop comenting or even looking at these posts in the hope that she will go away…so not worthy of any attention…

  25. Mika says:

    I don’t know why Miley’s attempt to look sexy and badass (?) just makes us sane viewers feel awkward and uncomfortable. Many people are saying that she’s trying to copy RiRi but at least RiRi could pull it off, right? I seriously feel sorry for Miley. I think deep inside, she still have that “old Miley” that her “Smilers” missed so much. Could it be the result of years and years of exploitation by people around her?

  26. Adrien says:

    I see she’s going the Lady Gaga path, even hiring Terry for some “creative” help for some shock value. Trouble with that schtick is that your next step is to totally get naked, show your privates and all. Then after that people will get tired of your sh1t.
    About the video. There’s nothing really sexy about Miley though her body is really great. All I see is Tank Girl, Susan Powter and televangelist Joyce Meyer.
    Problem with Miley is that she’s overcompensating to remove that Disney image. She isn’t really as troubled as Lindsay or Britney so she made up her own problems so she can have an excuse to unravel. She’s slumming by embracing that ratchet culture. Privileged white girl needs to ‘struggle’, you know.

  27. Justme says:

    I like that song, but she ruined it with that video. And I saw no real, raw emotions, only try-hard emoting. She equates being talked about negatively with being popular. It’s like she doesn’t realize that people are laughing at her, not with her. Yet she brags about the downloads, not realizing it’s about the car-crash-can’t-look-away syndrome and NOT talent.

    And girl looks like a beaver to me.

    • Katie says:

      yes! Her teeth are just so large, and so is her mouth. Combined with the tongue and I just want to rip off the whole lower part of her face.

  28. Roxy says:

    She needs to go away. No one wants or needs to see her child like body naked, it’s just plain creepy!!! Go away kid!!!

  29. grayze says:

    Okay, so here’s what I’ve decided: this is the last time I’m commenting on a Miley anything. Because what I’m starting to see is that she doesn’t care what kind of attention she gets, and I’m so sick of her I refuse to play into it any more.

    Like a child, she just wants people to look at her. She doesn’t care if they’re jeering or condemning or criticizing or celebrating her – she just wants them to talk. And yeah, most of the world is eye-rolling her and laughing at her, and what I think a lot of people don’t realize is that she probably knows it and absolutely does not care. Comments about her appropriation of others, her try-harding, working with Terry Richardson…she eats it up. I imagine she thinks ignoring criticism or acting defiantly makes her “edgy” and “true to herself.”

    What a load of crap.

    At this point, I think the worst condemnation would be for her to act out in all these ways and for people to go, “Eh.” To shrug and move on. Nothing to see here, folks. It happened to Gaga, so I am pretty freaking sure it can happen for Miley too.

  30. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    What’s really sad to me is that the song is actually a decent song – but Miley keeps going for that “I’m so sexy, look at me” thing that it completely subtracts from the beauty of the emotion she’s trying to capture in the video. Anyways, I’m starting to get sick of talking about Miley, can’t wait for this Bangerz era to be over.

  31. GeeMoney says:

    Horrible video, horrible song. Go away already.

  32. jess says:

    I hate to admit it but her music isn’t terriable, however, watching her is a huge turn off for her music. I don’t understand her thinking. I get that shedoesnt want to be Hannah Montana anymore but the path that she’s taking right now is making her look like a joke. She’s ruining her own career, nobody is going to take her serious.

  33. Luisa says:

    It’s so sad she’s downing ..all that is asking for help and no body see it ….she needs help ….

  34. Aoife says:

    Look up Sky Ferreira “Lipstick” music video. Uncanny, no?

  35. Aud says:

    I was at a legal class/seminar and two girls in the class, the two vain bimbos who always preen and pout, were watching Miley’s clip during the break on their laptops.
    Yes, Miley’s influence on today’s Gen Y girls is real.
    Makes me wonder what feminism was all about and whether it has ended up with the over sexualisation of females.

    • Jaded says:

      Aud, I totally agree – there’s an interesting piece on “Pop Tarts” on another blog that sums it all up.

      • Bijlee says:

        Yes to her post! Yes. It just easier to cater to the whims of the pathetic and be this shocking bs “empowering” (lol) object. It’s much harder to be smart and informed. The latter takes way more work and isn’t valued for women. So there ya go. Path of least actual work.

        Although I disagree that the woman really have that much of an impact on women my gen. Possibly younger than me though that’s definite a problem.

  36. Kahlia says:

    I’m cool with naked bodies, but the sledgehammer tonguing grossed me out so hardcore. However, you know what bothered me even more? All the damn spit strings! Girl, get yourself some water because you are dehydrated! No one wants to see closeups of your overly-sticky saliva! Vom.

    • michiem says:

      Yaaaas! I’m so with you on this one. I see some in the pic above, like does she wear invialign or something? That’s just too gross, not to mention white tongue. ugh.

  37. togsos says:

    The song was grand but the video was rubbish. I don’t really get what the problem people have with her is. I dont really know that much about her but from what I’ve seen she is just having a good time and can afford to do so and being an idiot 20 year old. Who wasnt an idiot at that age, we just couldn’t afford to do it so large 😀 . She doesn’t seem to be a douche like Bieber and she doesn’t seem to go about deliberately hurting people. I do think she needs to stay as far away from T Richardson as possible though. Personally i think she is much too young to be engaged anyway, she is better off having a good time and finding out who she is, as opposed to babies marrying babies, same with Zahn and his finance.

    the vid and song combo wouldn’t have been so bad if she had left out the weird sledgehammer makeout and all THOSE DAMN EXCESS MOUTH JUICES!!! that causes me barf much more than a white boobie!

  39. Ciru says:

    I didn’t get fellatio from whatever it was she was doing to the hammer…It looked more..cunnilingus-y.

    This makes so sad. She’s obviously talented..but she’s reduced herself into a sad gimmick.

    • Bitca says:

      That might be the main reason I find the tongue routine so nasty. It immediately resurrects memories of the way street guys in NYC used to hiss “Heyyy! Maami!! [tongue-tongue-tongue]”. Uck. Plus, it kind of transforms her retro, late ’80s “punkette” image into a retro, late ’80s “young lesbian trying to be butch” look.

  40. Mo says:

    I totally agree with the comments about the spit around her lips and the cheap looking lipstick, all this money she making really? she tries to be so much like rihanna, with the fake tears and the naked video ( like rihanna’s Stay video, the only thing is that Rihanna did hers with class, her tears looked real and what does the Disney star have to cry about anyway, she ruined her own relationship with her man by being classless and being phony for the hip hop world who will never be feelin her like that. The only hip hop heads that even deal with her are has beens like Juicy J and Snoop and French Montana ( really) and has anyone noticed that most men she twerks on are old, Juicy J in his 40’s and Robin Thicke real close to it and that Terry Richardson guy is old too, ( he would never see me naked)

  41. MissNostalgia says:

    Yes, she is gross. Nuff said.

  42. TherapyCranes says:

    I thought the song was actually pretty good and I don’t listen to pop music. It was leaps and bounds better than her last song. I don’t care if she is naked. If she wanted to over-sexualize her video I don’t care. It’s her “art”. She can do whatever she wants to express herself. I just wish she would act in a classier manner when she’s on the DL.

  43. Linda says:

    Can someone explain to me why she cannot keep her tongue in her mouth?!?! It’s NOT a good look.

  44. Marty says:

    Someone help me out here. This song sounds SO much like a popular song from the 80s/90s but for the life of me, I can’t place it. Anyone know?

  45. Lucy says:

    For those who liked the song, you should check out this girl called Mozella. She’s one of the co-writers. She’s EXTREMELY talented. Go give her a listen, if you can!!!

  46. vixo says:

    I watched the video this morning and didn’t know he directed it, oh Lord, no!

    Her nudity isn’t edgy, it’s the same old objectication of women. She’s basically trying to be sexy and making faces, licking stuff, so gross.

    This girl is on the same Bieber level of annoyance, just wish they would disappear.

  47. Jayna says:

    I really like the song actually. The autotune wasn’t even that annoying. A missed opportunity for a really good video regarding the emotion of the song instead of licking a sledgehammer and posing nude. And the saliva coming down her teeth when singing was distracting. I did love her hair, though.

  48. AB says:

    I just do not understand this tounge thing she keeps doing. It’s sooo not cute… Is she trying to be like the next Jean Simmons or something? Has she ever said that she Jean Simmons is an inspiration for this new tounge sticking out thing she does? I just don’t understand.

  49. Evie Rose says:

    Terry Richardson makes my skin crawl. Dude gives off such a rapey vibe, and his Lester the molester glasses are not helping the cause. Why do these huge stars work with him?

  50. GirlyGirl says:

    is it me or does Richardson look kinda uncomfortable in the first pic?

    His eyes are kinda saying “what have I gotten myself into?”

    • judyjudy says:

      Nah. That guy is so skeevy I don’t think there’s anything Miley Cyrus can do to make him uncomfortable.

      He’s probably making that face because he’s got a woody and pooped in his pants or something really shady like that.

  51. judyjudy says:

    It is kind of sad when a young naked girl is trying her best to be sexy and it’s downright BORING.

    And yeah, saliva. Gross.

  52. LilyT says:

    He really is like a creepy uncle who tries to spy on you in the shower… Makes me nauseous

  53. LilyT says:

    I’m sure he just LOVES how Miley works it for the camera and strokes his ego. Lets hope that’s all she’s stroking…

  54. Leila in Wunderland says:

    You know, I actually like the song and the video- except for the tongue and the licking of power tools. It would be just fine without that part.

  55. Mandy says:

    I refuse to watch her video. All she wants is our attention and she is not going to get it from me! Well, I guess I am giving her attention right now by commenting on this article, but this will be the last time!

  56. Aly says:

    Why is her tongue always white? For some reason all I can think of is she must have killer bad breath…

    • Alexandria says:

      If she’s not eating enough carbs her body could be in ketosis. A sign of ketosis is a white “detox” tongue.

  57. atorontogal says:

    I didn’t watch the video so I can’t comment, however, I need to ask why the majority of female singers feel they need to be almost nude to perform? Is it because they recognize they have no talent and are trying to distract people from this? Honestly, the good singers walk out on stage clothed and ready to really sing.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      With a few exceptions… like Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.

      Those last three aren’t amazing singers, but they can sing.

  58. Saffron says:

    “push boundaries” and “make a statement” about nudity. She was “showing her naked emotions.” She’s so “vulnerable”

    Such cliche nonsense. Can this girl come up with an original idea for once? Everything she does has been done before and done more creatively.

  59. Ginger says:

    Neither one of those songs is my kind of music. I’m too old I guess! I figure “J’s” are Jordan’s??? Ugh! The video is fine except for the licking of the sledgehammer…gross! I feel like I should pat her on the head and tell her to hurry up and grow up already! This phase is tiresome… I need a nap!

  60. Michele says:

    Can we fast forward 5 yrs already — when she’s a has been?

  61. d says:

    I just find yet annoying. I know this is a “stage” but like many have said, it just seems so forced and try hard. she is also just not sexy at all so that makes it worse when she is trying to be sexy and edgy. I think the budget thing that bothers me though is the tongue. I know she is trying to make this her signature or something of the sort. it’s dumb but the thing that I can’t understand is that if you are onstage, at vmas, making a video where millions will see u stick out your tongue, clean your tongue!! wtf ! brush it like crazy til it’s clean and presentable. geez. I would be embarrassed by that alone !

  62. skuddles says:

    Someone PLEASE jam a dirty sweatsock in her mouth!! I never want to see her disgusting tongue again.

  63. LilyT says:

    The mystery that nobody wanted to solve is gone.. We’ve seen it Miley, all of it. What else is there to “shock” people with? Wait.. I don’t want to know.

  64. IceQueen says:

    Pop culture and nudity…What else is new? Pffft. Nothing shocking here. I find the song and the video ok, what I don’t get is the licking of the sledgehammer? Just another way of showing her tongue? I don’t get that part.
    The rapping…eh. Maybe she did it for fun. You know-to entertain herself…

  65. Claudia says:

    BRUSH YOUR TONGUE!!! Jesus! While your teeth may be fake-white with intervention, it doesn’t conceal the fact that you clearly have poor dental hygiene. Gross.

    The video wouldn’t have been so bad if it weren’t for those close-eyed licking-hammer parts, because her face looks really unfortunate in those.

  66. Mayda says:

    Vanilla Rihanna.

  67. greenmonster says:

    Wasn’t there a blind item some time ago, that a young starlet had an affair with her boyfriend’s brother? I think Miley was a popular guess for the BI. So maybe, licking the hammer is Miley’s way to rub that in Liam’s face (Chris=Thor=hammer?)…don’t know…just a wild guess.

  68. Diana says:

    I can’t believe people think this song is actually good when the same people slam gaga’s o Perry’s music. Their songs are catchy and they can actually sing AND write their own songs. This Viley song makes my ears bleed.

  69. Barbara says:

    A totally VULGAR girl…..and not very grown up at all

  70. gg says:

    Bad as it is (and it is), she still blows away Katy Perry.

    • connie says:

      I rarely post, and usully limit myself to lurking, but that new katy perry song may possibly be the worst pop song in recent memory. it. is. AWFUL. I have never been a fan, but I just can’t.

  71. Momery says:

    yuck!! ..she needs to brush her teeth more often

  72. Ann says:

    I want the tongue to stop.

  73. WendyNerd says:

    My reaction one minute in:

    Okay this isn’t so—- oh, wait, nevermind. It’s awful.

  74. Lemony says:


  75. Jane says:

    I am so proud of my 5th grade female LADIES in my classroom. They have totally think she is disgusting. The teachers in our building had to chat with the girls in our grade to explain that this is not appropriate. The girls took and oath and pledge to never act this. I couldn’t be more honored to have young ladies who know right from wrong—not like this entity.

    • Bijlee says:

      …that’s just creepy man. You’re in school and you’re discussing this? Where are their parents?

      • Jane says:

        Designated room mothers and the president of the PTA were in my room. We had to choose the words carefully in accordance to district codes.

  76. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    Well I see Uncle Terry has bought himself another soul for the devil’s dinner table…….The only thing she was expressing is her utter disregard for decency and goodness… for her singing she does not sing….Singing is carrying a melody and using your voice in a pleasing tone and effect….Not bellowing like a cow in heat in a field full of bulls……
    More to the point …I have seen 14 yr old boys with better figures then she….take off the makeup and she would pass for a boy….No butt boobs to speak of and buck teeth….
    Please do not refer to her as a Kentucky girl cause I think every female who was or is born and living in the state will raise up protest and stomp you into the ground…..LOL.. at least that’s what my Kentucky cousins tell me on FB……..LOL said they were going to petition the governor to ban the use of her name and the name Kentucky in the same sentence….

  77. Simply Brown says:

    I like the song. The wrecking ball is the metaphor for what she is going through. As for the nudity well it’s just that, nudity.

    Maybe in her eyes/view she is breaking boundaries of being Hanna Montana but the nudity wasn’t necessary for the video

  78. iheartjacksparrow says:

    The song’s a lot better if, while the video is playing, you close your eyes and visualize a naked Rafa Nadal on the wrecking ball.

  79. vava says:

    Well, that was pure trash. I guess it goes along with her family….Billy Ray? Trailer Trash. She’s just doing what comes naturally. The only one ‘wrecking’ her is, guess!?!?!? HER.

  80. LaurieH says:

    Yes, Miley is trying to make a statement. As near as anyone can tell that statement is “Look at me! I’m a disease-ridden pig!”

  81. Dommy Dearest says:

    Terry is a glorified molester. Miley is only at the hits she’s at due to her having to get nude. She couldn’t take the normal route and keep her clothes on, she wouldn’t draw that many hits had she done so. She continues to draw focus on her butt as she has no ass and is trying to prove everyone otherwise.

    It’s getting boring and tragic. I’m a little bugged as someone decided to draw Harley Quinn as Miley Cyrus and Poison Ivy as Thicke to recreate that image from the VMAs. She’s destroyed everything I loved with her disgusting behavior. I have never disliked a celebrity this much- she takes the cake away from Bieber, Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Rihanna easily.

  82. misstrishm says:

    I’m sorry but her voice on this song sounds like nails across a chalk board imo.

  83. Ming says:

    I bet leann rimes is shooting herself in the foot for not doing this first. hah.
    the video reminds me of Rihanna’s “Stay” with the up close face shots, the tears, the angst.
    miley is a copy cat and unoriginal.

  84. lisa says:

    i hope that girl who does the miley impression is still on SNL

  85. goddess says:

    I actually quite like the song. The first few minutes were actually tolerable, me just seeing her face, and reading the emotions from her expressions.

    And then came the wrecking ball. and the naked straddling (god, all that rusty germs in between your legs bleargh!). and the making out with a hammer.

    the song’s fine. the video is just WTF.
    Challenge accepted: I will make a piano cover of her song. And no I will not wear my bday suit. LOL

  86. Janet says:

    She reminds me of a four-year-old jumping up and down, waving her arms frantically and screaming “Me! Me! Lookit meeeee!!”

  87. JEM says:


  88. Thea says:

    Without the tongue/making out-scenes and without her nakedness I still would have disliked the song, but it would have been so much better.

  89. Evie Rose says:

    I don’t mind the new and improved hood version of Miley Cyrus. AKA RIhanna 2.0. However, I just wish she would put her GD tongue away. It’s so awkward & gross. . . .
