Miley Cyrus is embracing an entirely new side as she continues her very public transformation from music industry wild child into a much more toned-down version of herself. Turning her back on her hip hop beginnings with controversial comments was apparently only the beginning. Now, she’s revealed why she regrets her infamous “Wrecking Ball” video.
“It’s kinda crazy that I’ll always be known for licking a sledgehammer,” the 24-year-old explained, according to ET, while promoting her new music on Long Island’s Cooper Lawrence morning show. And while we can’t deny that the sledgehammer thing was hella cheeky, we’d have to say her ride on the giant wrecking ball back in 2013 was even more memorable and oh-so meme-worthy.
Either way, the video — and the song — is something that the singer would rather put behind her. When it comes to performing the tune itself, Cyrus told WKTU’s Cubby and Carolina Bermudez radio show, “I’ll do it, but I don’t love it.”
Despite the star’s own feelings, with almost 900 million views on YouTube, it doesn’t look like “Wrecking Ball” will be forgotten any time soon.
