Media Moment - Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball"
At least Miley didn't twerk in this video. The song "wrecking ball" is a balad, more of a love lost type of song. Somehow though, Miley Cyrus finds herself half naked straddling a wrecking ball. People are too easily shocked in my opinion, in the day of the internet and extremely short attention spans, it seems that shock value is the way to go for many musical artists. Lady Gaga has used shock value as her main business strategy thus far and it seems to be working out for her. Miley has now turned to shock value to further her career as an "adult". First the twerking video surfaces on the internet, then her debauchery at the VMA's and then this video. It all seems too planned out to me to just be a former child start lashing out at her innocent past. In the video Miley licks a hammer seductively before being shown naked on a wrecking ball swinging around the room.
