Miley Cyrus: Wrecking Ball

I just watched the video for this, first time I've heard the song too (I'm slack).

The song is actually quite good, and she's got a dead nice voice, but I can't help but think that she didn't really need to be naked or to be having sex with the demolition equipment for it.  I might go so far as to say the song would be stronger had she had her clothes on and not been licking everything.

If you haven't seen it, here it is:

Honestly, who's idea was this?  I really hope it was her idea, or at least that she was keen to do it, because the idea of someone pushing her to do this is just creepy.

Oh, and the opening shot of just her head is the only thing this video has in common with Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U.

I'm fairly sure that she has been working overtime lately to shed her Disney-girl image.

Yeah I 'spect so.

The lyrics suggest a sad song about a girl whose fierce passion drove away the boy she loved, but the picture suggest a girl who loves showing off her sexual prowess (quite the mixed message)!

I didn't open up the video, because I've been trying to avoid ever seeing that.

I agree with the Disney shed-age. Its just a shame it had to happen this way.

I would, however, highly recommend the chat roulette parody version that is on youtube. Its hysterical.
