If it’s attention that Miley Cyrus is after, then she’s definitely getting it.
The 20-year-old pop star’s sex-crazed video “Wrecking Ball” shattered the record for the most-watched video in a 24-hour time period on video-sharing site Vevo.
The music video, which the website marked as “explicit content,” shows Cyrus naked, swinging around on an oversized wrecking ball and licking a sledge hammer. Once word of the controversial clip hit the web, Cyrus’ video quickly garnered unprecedented views for Vevo, with lots of eager users sharing links to her latest song. More than 16 million people watched “Wrecking Ball” in less than 24 hours. Previously, One Direction held the record for the most-watched Vevo video in one day, with 10.9 million views for their “Best Song Ever” video. But One Direction was no competition for Miley’s naked, albeit extremely successful clip. Still, while she did rack up the video views, Cyrus had no shortage of critics online.
