We give up. We’re totally confused, Miley Cyrus is totally naked, and Billy Ray is acting like it’s totally not a big deal that his daughter is riding a wrecking ball and making out with a sledgehammer.
“Trying to type, tweet, twerk and ride a wrecking ball naked all at the same time while carrying a sledgehammer is proving difficult ! PEACE,” read Billy Ray’s latest tweet, obviously referencing his daughter’s newest music video for “Wrecking Ball.”
Really, Billy Ray? Really!? We are so glad the country star waited until after the video was shot to try his own multitasking joyride.
Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video has been much anticipated since her risqué VMAs performance. Obviously, we all wanted to see if A) Miley would dive straight off the deep end and into the chilly waters of the NSFW abyss or B) she’d take the opportunity to tone things down a bit and crawl (non-seductively or with any other sexual undertones) back to her innocent Disney days.
If you chose B, you’d be right there with us, but no dice.
The opening shot of close-up Miley was promising, but as soon as we catch the first glimpse of her white-pantied self making out with a sledgehammer, we knew things could only proceed downhill. And they did. Naked Miley riding a wrecking ball. Nope, not riding as in a fun back-and-forth joyride, more like riding as in… riding.
Most of the comments on the proud(?) papa’s tweet are just as confused as we are, although some agree with him, as though they’ve definitely tried it and can attest to the level of difficulty involved.
In our humble opinion, “Wrecking Ball” is actually a pretty awesome single with all the raw emotions you’d hope to get from an artist singing about a tough breakup. Unfortunately, as awesome as the song is, the video, for us, fell flatter than the rubble on which Miley lay.
