We’re dating ourselves here but if the videos Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” copulated and had a baby, it would be the just-released clip (above) for Miley Cyrus’s teary ballad “Wrecking Ball.” Just being Miley, the 20-year-old straight ally has unsurprisingly set out once again to demolish what’s left (if there is anything left at this point) of her squeaky-clean Disney image by getting naked and riding the symbolic wrecking ball, natch.
Interestingly, this isn’t the most shocking Miley clip in circulating at the moment. Last Saturday the former Hanna Montana star stopped by the German TV show Schlag den Raab, but instead of grinding against retro R&B singers and giant teddy bears, she left the twerking to a back-up dancer with a rocked-out performance of her smash “We Can’t Stop” backed by a band of little people. Watch it below. She’s just being Miley.
