Wednesday 11 September 2013
A video in which controversial pop star Miley Cyrus can be seen getting completely naked and gyrating on a giant wrecking ball has been watched more than 19 million times in the past 24 hours.
Cyrus’s new video for single “Wrecking Ball” delivered 19.3 million views across VEVO on the first day of its premiere setting a new record, and surpassing One Direction’s “Best Song Ever,” which hit 12.3 million views in its first 24 hours in July.
The child star, who gained fame as Disney's Hannah Montana, continues to shake off her clean-cut girl-next-door persona.
The video, in which she writhes suggestively on a giant metal ball, attracted 220 views a second when it was posted on Monday. That's 791,666 views an hour and 13,194 views a minute.
Terry Richardson's video shows the pop star, 20, moaning about heartbreak and licking metal bars.
