It's a tale of the modern muse!
Girl (Miley Cyrus) meets
famous photographer boy (Terry Richardson) and magic ensues!
These two crazy kids stirred up quite the controversy recently, when Terry posted some NSFW pics to his blog of the former Hannah Montana star!
But did you know the famed photog helped bring Mileybird's Wrecking Ball video to life?!
In a new interview, the singer revealed how she approached Terry as director for the project, and her Sinead O’Connor Nothing Compares 2 U esq. vision for the vid:
"I said a lot of people tried to recreate it, a lot of people have tried to get that emotion in but there’s something about the way he did it."
The duo knew they wanted to create something obviously sexual and shocking (Miles' nekked bod swinging on a ball and chain…DUH), but realized the piece ultimately had to be driven by emotion to achieve their desired message:
"Well, it couldn’t be the same kind of shock as ‘Can’t Stop’ it had to be like, “Woah I didn’t expect Terry Richardson and I didn’t expect all this.” It has to be the full package because you can talk about the sexuality all you want but you also have to reference back that it’s Terry. You have to respect the fact that it’s art, you have to respect the fact that when you watch the video it makes you feel something and gets you choked up at some points."
…Not exactly sure if the vid got us crying or on boner patrol! LOLz!
But either way, she's a queen who just can't stop being Miley!
And for that, we love her!
Let's hope these two continue to work together in perfect harmony!
