Miley Cyrus Releases Emotional Director’s Cut Of “Wrecking Ball” Video

Screen shot 2013-09-25 at 10.41.45 AM

Just weeks ago I sat in the same chair I’m in now writing about how Miley Cyrus was yet again flaunting her tiny figure in her video for “Wrecking Ball.” The clip quickly garnered the most plays in a single day for any video ever (20 million), and this morning the official director’s cut found its way online. You may think you’ve seen it all, but I’m here to tell you that you could not be more wrong.

Critics had plenty to say about the lack of clothing Cyrus had on throughout the original “Wrecking Ball” clip, but almost everyone loved the closeup shots of her expressive, well-lit face. The Terry Richardson director’s cut that found its way online this morning makes the most of that love, and instead of attempting to somehow show more flesh offers a single shot of Cyrus’ up close performance. She sings while crying, and if you’re anything like us you’ll find yourself connecting more with the song than every before as a result. You can view the clip below.

“Wrecking Ball” is currently dominating radio worldwide and shows no signs of losing steam anytime soon. Miley’s new album, Bangerz, arrives in stores October 8. Comment below and let us know your opinion on the alternative cut of “Wrecking Ball.”
