Miley Cyrus has once again caused controversy over her new video Adore You. Not surprisingly, the 21-year-old crossed the border of being naked and took attention away from her music, which has caused an influx of praise and damnation.
Some of her fans remained loyal, expressing their love for the song and video. They called the star beautiful and amazing, whilst telling critics to leave her alone because she is old enough to do what she wants. One commentator stated it was up to parents, not Miley, to act as a role model and therefore, she has the right to produce a revealing video like this if that is what she wants.
However, others have stated that they love the song, but can not get past the video and that it destroys her music because it is verging on pornography. One fan even said he was extremely upset because he adores her music but with displays like this, it was making him hate her. He ended his comment by saying “goodbye.”
Miley sports a bra and panties whilst biting at her skin in the video, and later an all-in-one with holes whilst she lies in a bath. No, we are not entirely sure either what the link is between her lyrics “I adore you,” and paddling around naked in water. However, regardless of this, the video has already received 5,199,336 views on YouTube alone.
Her critics mocked her, asking why she didn’t just release a porn video and be done with it. Others classed the song as boring and that their ears were “bleeding.” Miley, once again, has caused controversial opinions with her new video Adore You.
Whichever view people take of Miley Cyrus, whether they love to hate her, or hate to love her, her music is still doing exceedingly well, and her latest album has had excellent feedback. She said that this album was her biggest declaration of independence, her two lead singles landed at No. 1 and No. 2, which is proof that people are loving her sounds incorporating hip-hop into the pop genre.
Cyrus has certainly come a long way from her pop music of younger years. Below is a video of one of the songs that made her famous for her musical abilities, 7 things. It is a fun video, showing a fully clothed Miley with long hair – a paradoxical image when juxtaposed with her new one in Adore You.
Her MTV documentary Miley: The Movement, was a way of representing her takeover of the world. She stated she was attempting to show that she is not a mess, but that everything she does is part of a bigger plan. Potentially scary, when she classed her team as an army, because it shows the influence people in the public eye have on a universal scale.
Despite Cyrus and her new adoration for shock tactics, the star is still adored by many of her fans, who all continue to preach about her music. Whether or not she will manage to “take over the world” like she states is her intention, remains to be seen. However, it is certain that Miley Cyrus has got everyone talking about her, especially with the controversy caused over her new shocking video Adore You.
