In 2013, Miley Cyrus stripped down and swung on a wrecking ball for a music video. Fast-forward 4 years later, Miley looks back in horror at her “Wrecking Ball” music video.
“That’s something you can’t take away. Swinging naked on a wrecking ball lives forever,” she said on Westwood One’s Zach Sang Show. “Once you do that in the amass that I did, it’s forever. I’m never living that down.”
Miley also fears that she “will always be the naked girl on the wrecking ball”. Which, we have to admit, is pretty much what comes to mind when anyone mentions “Miley Cyrus”.
“I’m always the naked girl on the wrecking ball,” she said. “I should have thought about how long that was going to have to follow me around.” The singer also mentioned that her worst nightmare is to have “Wrecking Ball” played at her funeral. “That’s my worst nightmare,” she admitted saying it keeps her up at night.
Recently, the 24-year-old opened up to Billboard about reinventing herself and leaving her pot-smoking, partying ways behind. “I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do,” she told Billboard.
Either way, we’re glad that Miley’s found her footing with her music. However, we don’t think she’ll be living down the “Wrecking Ball” fiasco anytime soon, if ever.
