Miley Cyrus is at it again. She is under fire for her sexually explicit “Wrecking Ball” video which has officially broken the most-viewed video record on VEVO today. Critics claim that the video is nothing but smut and is showing the pop singer slide quickly into the porn industry. The video could lead to more charity groups criticizing Cyrus.
The Teddy Bear Foundation called out Cyrus on her “bad behavior” with teddy bears at the MTV VMA’s last month. Cyrus is a strong supporter of the Libby Ross Foundation, Musicians on Call, and City of Hope. None of these foundations have called Cyrus out for her video yet. Vogue was not amused by the pop star’s twerking at the VMA show and is reportedly dropping the singer from the December cover. On the other hand, Cyrus has gained a spot to host Saturday Night Live.
Miley Cyrus isn’t being shy about anything in the “Wrecking Ball” video. Her latest performances seem to indicate that she is attempting move beyond being a tween pop star queen.
She defended her video to MTV News saying, “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 song is a pop ballad. It's one of these songs that everyone is going to relate to, everyone has felt that feeling at one point.”
She continued, “If people can take go into their imagination a little bit and see kind of what the video really means and the way it's so vulnerable and actually if you look in my eyes I look more sad than my voice sounds on the record it was a lot harder to do the video then it was to record the songs. It was much more of an emotional experience.”
Will the charities she supports continue to support the pop star embracing her sexuality or will they find her recent videos just as distasteful as twerking at the VMA’s?
