Miley Cyrus Naked Video Criticized, Star Trying Too Hard

Have you seen Miley Cyrus naked or nearly so in the new video for “Wrecking Ball,” off the album “Bangerz?”

If you managed to miss Cyrus naked save for flesh colored, bikini shaped viral, the star has launched a new offensive, and you will at some point or another watch her feigning nudity in a series of provocative dance moves — so you might as well get it over with.

Miley appears to have launched and airstrike of her newly sexualized image upon America, first with whatever it is that happened at the VMAs, and now with “Wrecking Ball,” her new video in which apparently a wrecking ball is involved — as well as a simulated act of oral depravity involving a sledgehammer.

This is what happens when a whole generation of young people are introduced to sex on the internet, people.

Nicole Clark, a “media educator,” Fox contributor and director of the documentary “Covergirl Culture” had some harsh words about Miley Cyrus’ naked video release, saying on the news channel:

“After I stopped laughing at the video all I could think was this video screams ‘I’m beyond desperate to be shocking, beyond desperate to be sexy and beautiful.’ Instead it’s ridiculous, not artistic, not meaningful because she’s trying too hard to ‘pose’ for camera and do a Calvin Klein ad for underwear while poorly lip syncing and being overly dramatic.”

Um. Burn? Clark continues:

“I just can’t take her seriously as a singer or a performer in her seriously silly video. It’s almost Zoolander because it seems she thinks she’s being artistic and serious but her attempt is transparent and laughable. At one point she rubs her nose on the chain and looks absurd.”

Do you think Miley Cyrus’ naked “Wrecking Ball” video is awkward and just an attempt to out-shock other, bigger pop stars?
