Miley Cyrus makes underwear top prop in new music video
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Miley Cyrus's latest music video, which features the provocative pop singer in just her underwear, leaked online hours before its scheduled release on Thursday, prompting a profane rebuke from the former Disney star.
The video for Cyrus's most recent single, Adore You, shows the singer writhing between bed sheets, sucking her thumb and rubbing her body before putting on a crocheted top and singing in the bath.
The video leaked online on Wednesday, ahead of its planned Thursday release. The leaked version has since been taken down.
"We all know Smilers would break another record if it wasn't for the (expletive) face who leaked my video. Alllllll good! Keep smiling :)," Cyrus posted on Twitter, referring to her fans who are known as "Smilers". The Adore You video mirrors Cyrus's prior clothes-shedding and headline-grabbing performances this year as the 21-year-old leaves behind her squeaky-clean Disney image to become the sexually provocative, marijuana-smoking bad girl of pop music.
