Miley Cyrus has been the subject of controversy as well as being one of today’s hottest pop stars, and with videos like We Can’t Stop and her twerking dance styles moves, and now her licking and pig-tail buns, she continues to be the subject of musical news. Her VMA performance tonight is likely to be spectacular and fuel even more articles about her.
Miley has recently be photographed and videoed “licking just about everything in sight” as MTV News puts it.
She has been releasing to the public bits and pieces of what her album cover for Bangerz, which will be released in October, will look like, and now the entire neon-splashed cover is out for everyone to see.
Also, Miley, less than 24 hours from when she will appear Sunday evening at the MTV VMAs, released her latest song from Bangerz, an intense and smoldering, eyebrow-raising ballad titled Wrecking Ball, whose lyrics are likely to provoke even more media interest and rumors.
Wrecking Ball, unlike her beat-driven We Can’t Stop, according to MTV News, is “a majestic, slow-burn ballad about a true love blown to bits by its own intensity.”
Miley Cyrus sings in an intense and vulnerable-sounding voice:
I came in like a wrecking ball/I never hit so hard in love/All I wanted was to break your wall./All you ever did was break me/Yeah, you wreck me.”
Have you ever fought as hard as possible to keep a love alive that semed to be dying? That’s what the lyrics of Wrecking Ball are about — of course, just as in real life, things don’t work out.
Miley’s voice, as she sings the verses, is backed by spare keyboards. In the choruses, she sings powerfully, and then she’s accompanied by pounding drums and an excellent addition of piano.
Here are more lyrics from Wrecking Ball:
I never meant to start a war/I just wanted you to let me in/And instead of using force/I guess I should have let you in … Don’t you ever say I just walked away/ I will always want you.”
Besides We Can’t Stop, the iTunes store is also selling Wrecking Ball. The titles of the album’s other 14 tracks have not been mentioned yet. Bangerz will be released on October 8, 2013.
When Cyrus hits the VMA stage on Sunday night, she has vowed she’ll be throwing a serious party, according to her interview with a MTV News reporter. The MTV VMAs will air 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Other performers who will be at the MTV VMAs either performing, handing out awards, or both, include the performers Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Drake, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kanye West and Robin Thicke.
Below is the entire recent interview so you can hear Miley Cyrus say in her own words why she chose to wear her hair in pig-tail buns, as well as hear her talk about her upcoming album, Bangerz, and about what to expect from her Sunday night performance at the MTV VMAs!
