Miley Cyrus, who has been causing big waves since her performance on the MTV VMAs, is in the news again. Cyrus, who is seen riding a wrecking ball naked in her new “Wrecking Ball” video is leading college students to re-enact the scenes… on the college campus… nude… on a pendulum statue that’s been a campus landmark for years.
Not only were these college students stripping naked to recreate the “Wrecking Ball” video, they were also “vining themselves”, posting these videos to Vine. More and more of these vine videos have been surfacing of late, causing the university to take action.
However, it should be noted that students were riding the ball before the Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” video. Total Frat Move reported the structure, "established a tradition for incoming freshmen.” But it’s probably safe to say the structure wasn’t ridden to the extent it is now (post-“Wrecking Ball” video), and by naked people.
But fear not, it sounds like there is a possibility the structure may make a comeback. According to CNN, the university's associate vice president of facilities services told WZZM that the ball was extracted, "so its structural integrity could be examined."
