Miley Cyrus has really staked her claim on 2013. “We Can’t Stop” is a top 3 hit, she got name-checked in a Jay Z song and brought twerkin’ to the mainstream. Her latest triumph? Starring in Big Sean‘s surprisingly tasteful and glamorous “Fire” video. There’s no booty-clapping or other funny business going on here. Instead the 20-year-old poses in a series of striking outfits on a giant rock and other highly-stylized locations. It’s actually very beautiful.
Big Sean describes “Fire” as being “about getting through the tough times, through the fire, and always evolving. Whether it’s in relationships, personal, in your work.” As for his leading lady, the Drake collaborator says: “Miley’s character in the visual represents a metaphor for people who may have changed and evolved into something beautiful, who have evolved past certain relationships — the picture of me burning symbolizes an old romance and coming out victorious and beautiful as a flower.” Deep!
The rapper’s sophomore album Hall Of Fame drops August 27. Let us know what you think of his Miley collab in the comments below.
