If you think that Miley Cyrus is done shedding her innocent public image by her vulgar VMA performance last month, you are so wrong. It turns out to be just an ice breaker.
The Miley Cyrus in this music video is the 360-degree version of the Miley Cyrus I used to idolized.
In “Wrecking Ball,” Cyrus sings about trying to break down her lover’s walls and, in return, being broken down herself.
I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me
It’s pretty deep, eh? It was made all the deeper by the video in which she makes out with a sledgehammer, rides the wrecking ball as it destroys the walls of a structure/relationship and then she walks around on the rubble of demolished the structure/relationship.
