Miley, ‘I’d Rather Be Naked Than Cry’

Miley on Wrecking Ball: ‘So, this is one of my favorite videos just because of the way that it came together. It was so natural and organic. I love when life kind of shows you where to go and what’s meant to be. It was definitely the stunt coordinator’s favorite job of his lifetime. I could definitely tell that. He’s in there swinging the wrecking ball, like this [demonstrates]! And it was scary because it would really knock down walls sometimes. Like, I would, like, actually get too much momentum and hit the wall.

Really laying on all that rubble was not comfortable either. I don’t know if anyone thinks that’s some fake rubble, but you can tell it’s definitely real. I’m in pain. For me, nudity has never been something that I’ve ever tripped about. I don’t really see it the way everyone else sees it. I’d rather be naked in front of people than cry in front of people, because I don’t like showing weakness and that shows a lot of, like, vulnerabilities.”

NOTE: Live Nation agreed to pay Miley upward of $500,000 a night for her new tour AEG Worldwide. Sources say AEG couldn’t see a way to make the US leg of the tour profitable, given how high the bids went. Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino clearly has a different view of the tongue-wagging Cyrus’ marketability. But there’s still Round 2: The Europe tour. And the fierce rivals are working hard to win the hot former “Hannah Montana” star. Cyrus has been a lightning rod for many music lovers after her radical transformation from squeaky-clean child star to down-and-dirty rocker. Her album took the No. 1 slot in its first week, but sales fell off 73 percent in its second week, with Pearl Jam taking over the top position on the album charts midweek.

Source on Miley performing on `Saturday Night Live` show: ‘Everyone expected Miley to show up with major attitude, but were stunned when she turned out to be a major sweetheart. She went out of her way to be kind to everyone, just plain old nice, posing for pictures backstage and signing autographs for the crew.’ More VEVO under!

    Doesn’t she cry in the video?

    But clearly she cares about the media and everyone’s attention.
    Like she wouldn’t be doing all these crazy stunts if it didn’t create a response from people.
    Everything about her is very image based. I think the whole creative/artistry side of her music has been subsided for a wild, shocking image.
    It kind of sucks if you think about it because a lot of young artists, even older ones, are putting image as a priority instead of lyrical content, etc.

    Point is- she doesn’t know what she’s saying.

      Unfortunately, image is everything in Hollywood. That’s why it’s so difficult to find actual artists with quality, cause they’re more interested in looking perfect, going to events and promoting, doing things for attention, than investing in talent and content.

    If she would rather be naked in front of people than cry then she has a problem. That’s not really normal… Ok, there are many people who don’t feel comfortable with crying in public, but choosing to be fully naked instead? You need therapy. Maybe that’s one of the reasons she was never a good actress, she has problems on showing vulnerabilities and emotions, qualities required sometimes for an actor.
