Miley Cyrus "Shockingly" Sings Naked in "Wrecking Ball" Video, No Longer Shocking Anyone

The controversy-loving pop star continues to think shedding her Disney image is best done by stripping her clothes off

We didn't think it was possible, but Miley Cyrus has managed to top her controversial "We Can't Stop" music video and raunchy VMAs performance.

The singer released the music video for the second single off of her upcoming album, Bangerz, called "Wrecking Ball."

Not only is the 20-year-old licking a sledgehammer and parading around in a white crop top and matching panties, she also straddles and swings from a wrecking ball completely naked. That's right, naked.

Check out the NSFW video below:

Cyrus captures viewers within the first few seconds, singing the emotional ballad in front of a stark white background as tears fall down her face. At about 75 seconds in, Cyrus -- as usual -- takes it just one step too far. She strips down to nothing but brown combat boots and provocatively swings from demolition equipment.

Seriously, Miley -- enough is enough!

We get it. You're not Hannah Montana anymore. You are an adult who dances with Molly, twerks, and grinds against a 36-year-old married man. Now can you please stop trying to make headlines?

Of course, Cyrus knew what she was doing when she hired Terry Richardson to shoot her video. The photographer/director is known for the sexual nature of his work. Is it any surprise that the final product has '80s porn undertones?

The thing is, the video for "Wrecking Ball" didn't need to feature Cyrus naked to make it successful. More powerful than her nudity is the singer's raw emotion, the song's meaningful lyrics and its catchy beat.

Cyrus might just be able to sell records because her music is genuinely good. But right now, she is trying to sell her rebellion -- if sticking your tongue out all the time counts as rebellion.
