Top 5 Most Disturbing Things About Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" Music Video

How do you top one of the most-talked about moments in MTV Video Music Award history? Release a boring music video, then bribe your fans to set records by watching it the most times ever in a 24-hour period.

It's all part of Little Miss Miley Cyrus' marketing plan for her upcoming album, Bangerz, due out Tuesday, October 8. Her second single and video for "Wrecking Ball" is sure to tick off a legion of new people (if they don't already look down on her), but it's not just because the song is lackluster or devoid of genuine sentiment. Compared to her groundbreaking clip for "We Can't Stop" -- which, despite being a party montage, still showed off the quirkiest shindig ever to be filmed -- "Wrecking Ball" is cookie cutter and painstakingly simple. Sure, Cyrus is naked throughout it, but that doesn't get this viewer excited at all.

While "We Can't Stop" inspired precious pet parodies and got everyone grooving, "Wrecking Ball" is a poor choice for a follow-up single and a disappointing clip. Here are the five most disturbing things -- besides the horrible manicures, the grinding on concrete and the cellulite close-ups -- about what should have been an epic follow-up video to "We Can't Stop."

1. It seems that Miley Cyrus is totally unable to experience real human emotions. For being an "actress" in such meaningful works such as Hannah Montana and The Last Song, Cyrus sure has a tough time committing to looking like she's sad in this breakup anthem. In close-ups of the bare-faced singer, her expressions range from confused, to curious, to excited, to angry, to happy -- as if she doesn't really know how to experience sadness -- all while a single tear rolls down her face. It would have been more effective if she just stuck to sad, but Cyrus oh-so-badly overacts during her prime time in the camera and comes across as disingenuous when she could have actually added some depth to the clip.

2. She's not wearing any pants -- but she is wearing a crop top and underwear. In the bits where Cyrus isn't naked, she's wearing the most impractical outfit ever -- all while she's swinging around a sledgehammer. Of all the activities to perform pantless, handling a sledgehammer might be the dumbest.

Not only is it unsafe, it's tired -- we all know what Miley Cyrus looks like almost nude. At this point she'd be better off developing a new look with clothes, where her fashion could actually inspire people instead of just make them scratch their heads. All her nudity just makes her seem like she's trying too hard to make people pay attention to her because she lacks vocal talent.

3. She licks the sledgehammer -- a lot. Why in the F would someone lick a sledgehammer?! Where has that sledgehammer been? What kind of bacteria does it have on it? What has it destroyed? Cyrus caresses the sledgehammer and puts it up to her face, creating this bizarre relationship with an inanimate object before using it to trash things. Hopefully she disinfected between each take.

You guys (journalists) keep giving her attention - when will YOU say "enough already?" and just ignore her antics?

And it worries me that the younger generation thinks that this is all okay . . . the dumbing of America!

Take this off the screen. She has been in the spotlight to long. Enough of her, lets worry about more important things, like OUR COUNTRY AND OUR STATE AND OUR SERVICEMEN. They need us more than she does. All she needs is a swift kick in the bootie.

I agree, she is disgusting and a disgrace. She needs to put her pants on and Justin Beiber needs to pull his up. It just blows me away to see what some people think they have to do for attention.

That would certainly be a place to start Bev. However, I think that she has created a new image that will be difficult to shake (pun intended).

It's just silly. If she ever wants to be taken seriously, she should put some clothes on and work hard.

Would you rather your grandson experiment with krokodil in a couple of years??? You've got your priorities all fucked up man....

I remember when Cher started wearing "sexy" outfits to get more attention for herself. Madonna certainly was paying attention, and took things even further. Then Lady Gaga, now Miley is nude. The obvious next step is hard core. I've always been more about the talent, bit it seems like the over the top production is more important than substance these days.

I don't understand.. She is only doing what every other pop star has ever done.. People just give her shit because she was on the Disney channel..

Unfortunately the media does not care what the majority of people are interested in. She keeps talking Art not seeing the trash I see.

I don't listen to it. But the media keeps bringing her up and asking us what do you think about this. (Miley).

I don't want my 3 and 4 year old grand kids twerking. That's what I don't like. Also MTV should not be airing crap like that during prime time. My grandson asked me when she was dancing with Robin Thicke "Tata what are they doing?" I immediatly switched the channel, But it was to late. The next day I caught him twerking in the dogs face.

I was hoping your comment would be something like this. Stop giving her attention and she'll go away. That's how celebrity works.

These repeated behaviors help me to understand why families become conservative and limit their children's viewing and listening habits to Christian Family Radio.

David, I no longer regret that I used her as an example years ago for my middle school girls, when I was explaining it is not a good idea to copy behaviors we watch on tv and in videos... There were already behaviors that would get middle school girls in trouble. This is just the latest.

She's trying to be Madonna um without Madonna's talent. LOL

The more we "want her to go away" the more we have to keep-up with her exploits so that we can understand why we "want her to go away". My prediction: she will never go away and we will keep demanding to know why!!!
