Steamy new Miley Cyrus video sets viewing record
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Miley Cyrus remained firmly in the US show business spotlight on Tuesday after her steamy new video set a viewing record on the Vevo.com website.
Wrecking Ball, featuring the erstwhile Disney teen idol swinging topless on a wrecking ball, drew 19.3 million views in its first 24 hours online, said Vevo via Twitter.
She handily broke the record previously held by the British boy band One Direction.
Cyrus, 20, with an album due out in October, provoked a national stir last month at the MTV Music Video Awards as she performed a raunchy duet with pop singer Robin Thicke.
