Yesterday Miley Cyrus released her new music video for her single Wrecking Ball and it shot to #1 on itunes and received the most views of any youtube video in a 24 hour period. The extremely adult video (viewer discretion is advised) now has over 18 million views.
The reactions to the video are both positive and negative. Miley fans are defending her as an artist. Others think it's just one more cry for attention. But the most interesting reaction was how concerned people were about the props used in the video. Now obviously, the wrecking ball makes sense because the song is called Wrecking Ball. But the sledgehammer really threw people for a loop.
Not sure if I just watched Miley Cyrus' video for Wrecking Ball or a risqué Home Depot commercial.

I wonder if the inventor of the wrecking ball is going to get super pissed at @MileyCyrus for "degrading" it?

Miley Cyrus licks a sledge hammer in her new video, Wrecking Ball, which is 100% a side effect of being gluten-free.

With her Wrecking Ball video Miley Cyrus managed to also make a terrible video for Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.
