When you’re an artist who pens original music, old hits can turn into a time capsule of life events and emotions. That’s one of the reasons why Miley Cyrus wouldn’t have written “Wrecking Ball” today.
You probably remember the song for one reason — Cyrus, naked, on a wrecking ball. While tastefully done, it still made a bunch of headlines — probably because of the intriguing visuals, paired with the fact that while Cyrus had since broken the image, she did get her start on the Disney Channel.
Still, it was a catchy song.
Cyrus clarified the statement a little bit in an interview with NME Magazine, as reported by People. No matter what, even though she may not dig the song as much as her others, she’s grateful for the tune.
So, it should come as no surprise that she doesn’t think “Wrecking Ball” would have been something featured on her latest release, Younger Now, which will officially be in stores tomorrow.
She admitted that she’s not as impressed with the song as she once was. Which, as a musician, shows she’s interested in continuously progressing forward.
Unfortunately for Cyrus, we think the song and video will be on people’s minds for quite some time — since for weeks, it was all we could talk about.
