With Lorde and Katy Perry overtaking her on iTunes, Miley Cyrus is desperate to keep those VEVO views up in order to snag another week at number one. Her strategy? Releasing a one-take director’s cut of the already iconic “Wrecking Ball” video.
Great idea but Terry Richardson chooses to focus solely on the 20-year-old’s face, so we’re treated to four minutes of the Bangerz diva bawling her eyes out and dripping snot. Oh and the sleazy snapper makes a cameo at the end. So there always that to look forward to. My advice, just close your eyes and soak up the genuinely brilliant song. Watch up top (if you must).
Is this better than the original version? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
