Miley Cyrus is back with her new single 'Malibu' and has been reflecting on her career so far in a series of new interviews.

The 24-year-old visited the Zach Sang Show where she was asked to address her evolution from 2013-2017 by ranking some of her biggest songs.

Asked if she could name one song she could do without, she picked 'Wrecking Ball', a song which became somewhat infamous thanks to its accompanying video.

 Playing the game "Marry/ Eff [F***]/ Kill" with her songs, she ended up critiquing the track.

"Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever," she joked. "I am never living that down. 

"I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball, no matter how much I frolic with Emu [her dog] I am always the naked girl on the wrecking ball."

"I should have thought of how long that was going to follow me around," she added, referring to the viral music video. "It's my worst nightmare, that song being played at my funeral — that is my worst nightmare."

Cyrus was recently praised by Harry Styles for how she handled discussions around her sexuality. 

In an interview with The Sun, the former One Direction singer said he didn't feel “like it's something I've ever had to explain about myself”.

“Being in a creative field, it’s important to be ­progressive. People doing stuff like [Miley Cyrus] is great,” he continued.

“It’s weird for me — everyone should just be who they want to be. It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that."
