Considering that over 100 million people have watched the video for Miley Cyrus' new single, "Wrecking Ball," it's about time the singer opened up about her nudity in the clip. Cyrus talked about the video in an interview with Z100/New York's syndicated Elvis Duran morning show, saying that it is meant to display "much more" than just nudity.
"If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," Cyrus said on the air. "If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable… If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience."
So far the singer's fans are clearly excited about the new song, and Billboard predicts that it could land at the top of the Hot 100 chart this week, which would give Cyrus her first #1 song. Industry sources also predict that "Wrecking Ball" could sell more than 400,000 downloads for the tracking week ending September 15, after shifting 116,000 in the week ending September 8.
Additionally, the "Wrecking Ball" video continues to smash VEVO's viewing records, as it recieved "Certified" status for passing 100 million views. Cyrus broke her own record for the fastest "Certified" video, with "Wrecking Ball" taking just six days. The previous record was the 37 days it took for Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" to pass 100 million views.
Meanwhile, with her new album, Bangerz, dropping on October 8, Cyrus is totally focused on music right now and has no thoughts about returning to acting. "I don't really care to do anything acting-wise," she says in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I want to make all of my music videos so epic that it feels like I'm still involved with acting."
However, she does have an MTV documentary called Miley: The Movement that will air on October 2.
