Meaning behind Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball video revealed

So, Miley Cyrus' music video for her latest single, Wrecking Ball has left everyone questioning, 'Why is she naked on the wrecking ball? Is that even necessary?' so on and so forth.

But Miley has finally broken her silence about the video that broke Vevo's record for the most viewed video with 19.3 million views in just 24 hours, beating the previous record held by One Direction's Best Song Ever.

"I think the video is much more [than that]. If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," said the 20-year-old singer.

"The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate to; everyone has felt that feeling at some point. If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable."

"If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience," confessed the former Disney darling.

Although there have been tons of criticism and backlash, Lady Gaga has defended Miley during a recent interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

"I mean, I just think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel," said the Applause singer.

Gaga continued by stating: "I don't understand the incessant need to constantly go on and on about hating things all the time because, what, she's 20 years old? And if anything, I give her props. You know, she's growing up in front of the entire world and maybe she's not so happy with stuff she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free, so let her do what she wants."
