Okay, so shockingly I actually kinda like Miley Cyrus’s new song Wrecking Ball. The lyrics are thoughtful, her voice isn’t super annoying, and the song is actually kinda beautiful.
Then I watched the video.
The concept itself was really simple. Some smashed up walls, a sledgehammer, and oh hey look a wrecking ball. Cool. I thought this video would be a really good chance for her to show a more mature and vulnerable side to her than we’ve seen lately, and I guess she sorta achieved that to a degree. And I actually didn’t think her nudity whilst riding the wrecking ball was anything to be upset about. If it were Lady Gaga I’m sure most people wouldn’t give a shit. Her going without makeup probably would have been more vulnerable than her nudity, but that’s her choice I guess
What ruined it for me was the scenes where she’s like writhing around the floor and licking the hammer and just trying to sexualize things that really don’t need to be sexualized. I think after the VMAs, she’s made her point that she’s a “sexy woman” now, and the shock value is seriously fading. This video would probably have been more surprising without the sexy scenes honestly. 
The song itself is still actually pretty enjoyable. Not my usual cup of tea, but if it came on the radio while I was in the car I wouldn’t go out of my way to change it.

    This song doesn’t suck actually. The nakedness wasn’t overwhelming. The hammer licking was weird. The lyrics i get.
