Miley Cyrus only released the video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ yesterday (September 10th) and already it’s broken the record previously held by One Direction.
One Direction had previously held the record for most video views on Vevo in a 24 hour period. The lads had achieved 12.3 million views but Miley Cyrus had broken this record in just 13 hours.
Miley Cyrus is still determined to keep breaking records with the video and has said that if views reach 150 million then she’ll release the directors cut.
At time of writing the video currently has 48,698,311 views on YouTube so the former Disney star took to Twitter earlier this evening (11th September).
Cyrus said that since the video has already attracted so much attention that she’ll share a completely different edit if the demand for the video continues.
Writing on Twitter she said:
“Ok so we’re already to 40 million so quick… how about director’s cut once smilers get it to 150 million???? =] i know y’all love a challenge. Director’s cut of ‘Wrecking Ball’ coming when this hits 150 million!”
Miley Cyrus also confessed recently that she had experienced real emotional pain while filming the video: “I think the video is much more. 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.”
“The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate too; 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.”
“Actually, 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.”
