Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball Music Video: Is It Her Good-Bye To Liam Hemsworth?

| Filed under: Music MinuteLove LineMiley CyrusYOU Decide!Liam Hemsworth

Literally stripped down to her heart's truth, Miley Cyrus trades her zany We Can't Stop antics for more emotional ones in Wrecking Ball.

With the lyrics hauntingly familiar to anyone who's been in a rocky relationship, we just can't help but wonder if this is her good-bye message to Liam Hemsworth.

Almost every artist sings from experience and most are usually past the heartbreak by the time their music is released, but as Miley cries into the camera with waves of both anger and sadness, something feels heavier with this one. More present.

We heard she'd be fine if Liam took the advice of his advisers and split, but relationships are 2-way roads and she has a say in it too!

So what do U think…

  1. 1

    This is a beautiful song. I really hope Miley find a way to be original and true to herself, without continuing to sell herself out by acting like a nut. She is showing us for the first time that she truly has a talent that can go far beyond Hannah Montana, but she keeps sidetracking her journey with stupid, childish antics.

  2. 2

    If he had truly "broken" her she woudl not be doing the stupid things she has been doing. She would still be the more demure Miley of 1-2 years ago instead of the mess she is right now. She DID walk away - she wanted what she wanted. All well and good - but don't cry over losing something when you kept on your own course for your "career" or whatever other reason. You can't expect someone to let you in of you won't do the same. Every relationsh ip is give/take. But sorry Perez - people seldom get the chance to be in control of when things end. More often than not it is one person's decisiosn to go and the other person is not wanting that. In that case - the perosn getting left does not have any choice in the matter. Both people only get a "choice" when both agree it is not working.

    I love women and want more talented women in pop…this girl is a horrible role model sexualizing herself instead of relying on talent…she really has none. Women have a difficult time enough stepping beyond the sexual stuff to see us for what we are…This girl is a dis-service to women who have worked hard to not be seen as objects..shame on you Miley…Is GAGA and Pink the only talent and strength we have now? And yes, Robin Thicke is an idiot…tool.

    Miley needs better advice that's for sure. Who ever is telling her to sell controversy instead of talent needs a smack up side the head from Billy Ray. The girl can sing. Let that be what she sells rather than making videos like this which will generate plenty of comment and interview time but inevitably damage her reputation and career that she's spent so long and hard building. Such a shame. Young people….you cannot teach them what they cannot learn. Only life experience does that.

  5. 5

    Sorry it still seems stupid and childish and desperate to me to need to be naked in a music video to sell the song. The song isn't bad but her singing is just not that good. I've never really been much of a Miley fan. Only liked a few of her songs.

  6. gross says – reply to this


    what does humping a wrecking ball and making out with a hammer have to do with this wong

  7. Lara says – reply to this



  8. 8

    Her level of desperation is pathetic. Anything to distract the people from how horrible her music is.

  9. 9

    Her ring isn't on in this video, i feel like that means something.
    I like this song, and I like the video. It seems really honest and way less desperate and more meaningful than We Can't Stop. I wish she wouldn't ruin it with stuff like making out with a sledgehammer. She doesn't need it, the song is supposed to be emotional and raw. That weird stuff should be saved for weird songs like We Can't Stop.

  10. 10

    Nope. Not watching anything about this trash hillbilly begging for attention.

  11. Em says – reply to this


    Why was she naked? And why did she lick the hammer?? wtf?

  12. Kaylee says – reply to this


    Someone else wrote the song for her, just like they did that other "cool" song of hers. Girl needs some moisturizing lipstick. And if she's supposed to be selling sex, I'm never buying it. She's not a girl I'd want to look at. She doesn't even make me want to do/dress like that to get guys' (or, in my case, my guy's) attention. I had to stop watching it. Ew.

  13. hmmm says – reply to this


    maybe she wrote this when her parents were going to split?

  14. annadboo says – reply to this


    I really want a GIF of her licking the sledgehammer!

  15. jj says – reply to this


    She has a great voice and I used to enjoy hearing her music on the radio. But now I cant sit through her songs because all i see is her with her tongue out and her shaved head and tits poking out of her shirt. I truly dislike her now. Please put cloths on and act like a normal young woman. We all get you don't like your disney image, but i kinda wish you turned out like Selena Gomez. She's classy sexy and now i bet she will go farther than Miley.

  16. WTF says – reply to this


    Seriously what the hell is wrong with this girl. The hammer thing is revolting. She has completely lost it. It's not even sexy just sad and pathetic. I don't see the difference between this and a stripper. I really don't. Incredibly selfish and immature.

  17. Senfida says – reply to this


    Re: hmmm – she didn't write this song. It was written and produced by 3 other people according to Wikipedia, so there's nothing autobiographical about it. Maybe she picked it for a single though.

  18. 18

    There is no possible way it could be about Liam. Obviously you're not aware of the fact that she didn't write the song, nor contribute anything to it - I doubt she even chose it, that was most likely done for her. All she did was sing and even that was overly enhanced. As for the video, it's just another pathetic attempt on her part to be controversial and show what a rebel she is. At this point, I think she's even worse than Lady Gaga. Both are complete attention whores who will do practically anything to get the attention they desire. I'm glad both of their "fans" have finally had enough.

  19. 19

    Re: WTF – Strippers usually have more class. Ha ha.

  20. 20

    Oh please. Miley think she can fool everyone with this song and pretend she was the innocent one in the relationship. He had a good damn reason to walk away. She never even fought to get Liam back, she's been too busy twerking her ass off and having her tongue in else places for the world. She doesn't care. She's a ghetto, desperate wannabe white trash piece of shit.

  21. Anni says – reply to this


    Listen to the lyrics. She don't says good bye to him. Its more about a hard time in their relationship.
    All my luck for them.

  22. me says – reply to this


    For the love of God give it a rest. Molly Cyrus sucks! Get it out of our faces already.

  23. 23

    What Miley doesn't get is that unless you really understand how to do controversy, it never works. Madonna built her career on controvery…but she always had a point to it, she was making controversial statements, pushing the envelope on what women could get away with at the time. It's why she had lasting power. Miley is just…licking everything, sticking her tongue and dancing like a stripper…there's no message there, there's no statement, it just comes off as desperate and insecure. And it might make her popular and talked about now…but that kind of fame never lasts.

  24. Someone says – reply to this


    I could do without her being naked or licking that Hammer? What ever it is. But the song is beautiful. She sang it with passion. No one can say she is not talented.

  25. Shazza says – reply to this


    I was wondering why this video was so revealing and full of nudity, and then I realized Terry Richardson was behind it… No wonder…

  26. 26

    You know, I don't think the song is all that bad. Just….i don't understand her fascination with being naked all the time. Honestly, with such a beautifully written song it's distasteful to see her licking a hammer and riding the wrecking ball like a bull. It takes away from the message and it's just overkill. I couldn't even take her tears seriously because I was unnecessarily - and that's the key word - distracted by her tan lines and her cleavage. Such a shame.

  27. Me Again says – reply to this


    Great video, great song. I wish I could be Miley for one day.

  28. Jack says – reply to this


    Wow - this is unreal. Why is she doing this? The naked licking sexualizing -
    honestly, there's something not right here - who is her handler?

  29. Cindy says – reply to this


    I listened to the song without watching the video and I liked it. I thought she showed she can really sing.I will go back and watch the video later and see if it changed my opinion at all

  30. Lauren says – reply to this


    I don't think Wrecking Ball is her "goodbye" to Liam, I think this is her admittance that if he wanted to leave her she understands why, as she is saying that she knows she "came in like a wrecking ball" and turned his quiet, low key presence into this massive in your face lifestyle. I think she thought that she had lived her life, all grown up and wanted to settle down and then all of a sudden it hit her that there was so much more to do and experience that she just exploded and went crazy. But I totally understand where she is coming from, however I think her antics look worse than they are purely because she is famous and has the media at every corner. She's living her life with no regrets and living her life for HER! Isn't that what we all should be doing?

  31. Lauren says – reply to this


    Also… why should she aim to be a role model for "Young Kids"?? HANNAH MONTANA was the role model for lil kids.. NOT MILEY!
    She's 20 yrs old soon to be 21… she's doing what any NORMAL NON FAMOUS 20yr old is doing.. I mean jesus christ Im 19 and I drink to the point I can't stand up sometimes! I smoke/have smoked! I stick my tongue out in pictures all the time?! But just because im not famous or well known like she is or have cameras in my face day after day, my antics and the majority of other 19-21yrs olds antics don't mean the same. So apprently you can only be a role model if your famous? LMFAO!
    It's pathetic how people cannot get past this whole "she needs to be a role model" NO SHE DOESNT! She came into showbiz to do what she wants to do.. and she's doing it! GOD everyone tells you to "be yourself" and yet all she gets is hate?! Messed up.

  32. JEHICA. says – reply to this


    Honestly, I understand it being about Liam and all, but the lyrics almost seem like it's directed towards Disney to me. She came in like a wrecking ball, trying to be bigger than everyone else, changing everything, and then it broke her.

  33. 33

    It's her goodbye to his brother.

  34. someone says – reply to this


    alot of insecure people commenting lmao, get a life jealous losers

  35. Deveny says – reply to this


    Miley has talent but the way she is portraying it kind of a contradiction. I guess she is exploring and breaking out of her shell and doing what the media wants!

  36. giggler says – reply to this


    I dont think this is her good bye to Liam. I don't think there is anything genuine or authentic about her. This is all for more attention. I do like the song though, wish someone with a better voice and who could convey some real emotion would have recorded it.

  37. annoying music says – reply to this


    No jealousy here. Just disgust. I will not watch this video but have heard the song. She cant sing. She would never make it on the voice. The song is not half bad but would be better with someone else singing. Liam himself could probably do better even though he isnt a singer.
    Liam is gone and Highly Miley is alone at night crying.
    I am jealous of others that are actually classy and beautiful and can sing but this Nudist Rathet Hammer is not one of them. Not even close. Could you imagine Beyonce in that Bear Boob Ears outfit Miley wore at VMA? No NEVER!!! Miley is a freak.
    Wishing Liam the best.

    Re: Someone – Sure I can say that, she does not have talent.

  39. AEM says – reply to this


    This song is about Nick Jonas! She wrote this in Jan/Feb 2012, way before their current issues. Nick found out about it and he wrote Wedding Bells in summer 2012, which was never released.

    WB was the first song Miley wrote for BangerZ.

  40. AEM says – reply to this


    Re: jj – Miley $135 million
    Selena $7 million
    And don't say Hannah was due to Billy Ray. He is jealous of his own daughter's success (see 2011 GQ and autobiography) and he couldn't be a real father. He admitted that. Miley must have talent at 13-17 yrs to be able to make Hannah so popular.

    Yes, Selena will be more relevant in 10-15 years, but Miley has proven herself already. More money, more awards (just go Wikipedia if you want). BangerZ is better than Stars Dance.

    Yes, I wish Miley would stop being vulgar. Selena is definitely a class act, but she HAS to play by the rules, because she doesn't have enough money to take the crazy risks that Miley is taking.

  41. amernie09 says – reply to this


    It's still a great beautiful video BUT it would be so much better without the pointless make out session with the sledge hammer. It's really hard to take her serious when she does disgusting things like that, but the video is still amazing and so is the song. People keep freaking out about her being naked but it seems more artistic to me and beautiful, not nasty or dirty.

  42. amernie09 says – reply to this


    Re: Lara – i think she's symbolizing sex with whoever this song is about, some on licking your hammer and riding your wrecking ball..too obvious.

  43. 43

    I don't think it's a goodbye, if it is, it's the longest goodbye in the history of mankind. I heard from a reliable source in L.A. that Liam is gay, not that there's anything wrong with that…but he has had a behaviour pattern that seems to support that. Who knows.

  44. erin says – reply to this


    if she is proud of her body she can flaunt it all she wants. Maybe not in the raunchy distasteful way as in the VMA's but the nudity in this video is pure and symbolic. Just because women are ashamed of their bodies and scared to be out of their comfort zone doesn't mean Miley needs to hide the fact that she is not, and clearly has no need to be.

  45. Nini says – reply to this


    this really is a great song and the video is pretty emotional too ( little lost with the nudity tho ) Im looking forward to see what her album is going to contain

  46. CJgirl says – reply to this


    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you. I have been broken a couple of times in my life and one of those time I set out on a path of self destruction. I was young and dumb like Miley and I wanted to go crazy to mask and eliminate the feelings inside me. I think it is fairly obvious that Miley is hurting deeply inside. I am no fan of hers but I can see how much pain she is in and understand that's why she is acting like a fool.

  49. BB says – reply to this


    I think people are being a little too harsh about Miley. Yeah she is portraying herself in a bad way but she is trying to jump out of what she use to be (Hannah Montanna). People say she is acting out by her recent actions.. the vma preformance, wrecking ball music video. But all in all shes doing what she wants and it is giving her more and more attention, and thats what she is aiming for. This song has a strong meaning to it. Everyone is just looking at it as her swinging on a wrecking ball bare naked, but really this song is about her being stripped of her love for Liam. She is expressing the song in a visual way and I think it is brilliant. I'd have to admit, I did not like the video at first but now I totally get where she is coming from. Stay strong Miley, you have your haters but don't let any of them get you down.

  50. Ellen says – reply to this


    She wants to be Rihanna.
    This is very similar to Stay: naked, close up of face, crying, looking hurt and vulnerable.
    Only it worked for rihanna, not so much for Miley

  51. AhmedMH says – reply to this


    Come on you guys, this girl has freakin talent !
    This video explains her split up with Liam, that's clear because she isn't wearing her ring.
    Be that, I think the video is explicit, she could've taped a better video that would explain her "naked and stripped " of love emotion some other way. Being desperate about her break up doesn't mean that she doesn't have talent, because SHE DOES.
    She's still a youngling and I think she's still experiencing lots of stuff and mostly the sexual at this age, but there has to be some grown-up accompanying her on most of her journeys to guide her.

    I love her and I think she could be way better than this. This girl needs guidance for gods sake, she's a great star, but a very lost one.

  52. re:kabukigirl says – reply to this


    Re: kabuki girl – Actually, wouldn't it make *more* sense for her to be doing all of these stupid because she's broken? I'd say this is attention seeking behavior that could be resulting from things that are making her feel insecure in her own life, so she needs something else validating her existence. Or she could just be a hoe.

  53. Lindsay says – reply to this



  54. Andrea says – reply to this


    Re: Senfida – Let me explain it to you. The kissing of the sledge hammer is to show that she secretly still love the pain. She's naked to show how liam destroyed her, She emotionally become "naked and stripped" meaning she's hurt on the inside. The wrecking ball symbolized a destructive love, hence the song title. (The wrecking ball breaks the walls and she's left laying and she's the remaining of it) so instead of calling miley a "slut" or a "whore" realize that she's just trying to tell a love that went wrong and destroyed her emotionally.

    Miley Cyrus Explains The 'Wrecking Ball' Video For The First Time

    “I think the video is much more. If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," said told Duran. She added, “if people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable. … If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”

  57. Loveable Disgrace says – reply to this


    @AEM & jj: Selena Gomez isn't constantly licking thinks and slightly less underdressed, but definitely using sexuality as a major part of her strategy. She is a beautiful girl, but can't sing for shit. If you don't write music, can't play an instrument and can't sing, what are you doing on a stage or in the music industry? So I suppose that's one thing that Miley has on her; as her singing isn't nearly as rediculously autotunes as Selena's are.
    The VMA's used to be fun to watch, or listen to in the background while doing stuff. Nowadays it's seems a large part of the music industry is all about attention whoring with some (horrendous) music playing in the background. The constant writhing, nakedness (Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus), self-indulgence and lack of actual music in some of these female singers has been getting lame for quite some time. It's a shame that none of the other acts took the opportunity to say that some entertainer need to put some friggin' clothers on. Now thàt would have been controversial, without licking and humping even! ;)

  58. kidsmom says – reply to this


    Well, I suppose the fake tear at the beginning shows a little emotion but it appears to be just another reason for Miley to take off her cloths and stick her tongue out. She has no emotion in her acting or her video's. Her face stays the same regardless of what she's wearing or doing. I think she's just trying to make us feel sorry for her. I truly wonder what her mom and dad feel watching this shit. It makes me sick to my stomach.

    i still love miley, we know that there is something on her eyes, the pain the sadness how can u moving on in a 4 yrs relationship? thats to hard if u love that guy more than to her self, WE CANNOT JUDGE HER COZ WE DONT KNOW WHATS THE REASONS,, SO PLEASE STOP SAYING A BAD WORD TO HER,,, :(

  61. Ann says – reply to this


    Re: JEHICA.

    First of all, your cussing does not make your argument points stronger.
    But you are right about one thing. She is only 20 years old! And that does mean she is still discovering herself. And she does have the right that we all do.
    But more than likely, 10 years from now, she will regret this behaviour.
    She does have the right to experiment, but not in such public manners.
    You say she doesn't have any resposibility towards her fans to be respectable, but becuase she built her career as a model to young kids she DOES have a responsibility to show young people and people of all ages what a good role model is.

  62. Ann says – reply to this


    Re: Ann

    The original reply was meant as a reply to entry 32 by Lauren!
    and so is this

    I know you're 20 and you know everything, but just wait a few years. When you have children of your own, you will not want them twerking and wearing revealing scraps of clothing to discover themselves.

    And as for your drinking habits; that's not something to be proud of, nor is it healthy. You might consider getting help. Just because you aren't famous does it make it any less dangerous.

    Call it a curse of fame, but she wanted fame, and she was in a position where millions of people looked up to her and it is innapropriate for her to be letting them down this way.
    And no, you do not have to be famous to be a role model. We all have a responsibility to teach each other values, morals, compassion, modesty and many other things.
    Being an individual does not give you the right to do whatever you want! Being yourself does give anyone the right to negatively influence others. Nor is it an excuse to show the world your private parts.

  63. Emotions says – reply to this


    She sings this song with so much emotion. It just feels like such a slap in the face to Liam.
    She acts like he was so horrible to her…and I hardly doubt it. I don't know what is going on in Miley's head,,,,but she is very messed up.
    Sometimes as much as you want or love someone it just isn't the right…moving on for both of them seems like they would be happier emotionally. They are young.

  64. 64

    ummmm…I think Liam said good bye to her months ago but hey if she wants to make this song about him..go for it. He moved up and she is still trying to ditch her Disney fanbase. If I were a tween or a Hannah Montana fan I would be some pissed that this woman is trying so hard to get rid of the ppl who made her successful.

  65. 65

    Re: GIRLY – Girly, you are one of the ppl that Miley is trying to ditch. She doesn't want you as her fan. She wants big ppl not Hannah Montana kids. Hence the "I am a bad azz tramp" that she is hoping your mom's won't let watch her anymore. My eleven year old son is laughing at her. Even he can see she is desperate but he is somewhat confused as to why she can't seem to keep her tongue in her mouth. I told him she had a medical issue.

    I love this song. people should just figure out the meaning of the words not her appearance in the video.
