Transcript for Miley Cyrus Bares All in 'Wrecking Ball' Music Video
We're going to turn to miley cyrus -- stop me if you heard this before, shocking new video. If you were stunned by her provocative performance at the VMAs, THIS JUST RELEASED VIDEO. My eyes. My eyes. Nothing is left to the imagination. There's another firestorm coming. Abc's nick watt has this story. ♪ We grow ♪ Reporter: Miley cyrus wants attention. ♪ I came in like a wrecking ball ♪ Reporter: She wants millions to watch her new video, "wrecking ball," and break a record on the site, vevo. So, she's on a wrecking ball, naked as the day she was born. So racy, we're blurring it out. I talked to people close to the camp. Miley is the one who comes up with this stuff. Reporter: Leaving parents across the land struggling to explain, no, you can't watch her new video. The message they're getting is sex is what gets you attention. That's not a message that young girls need to be having. And it's not a message that i want my daughter learning. Reporter: But in music, sex now sells. Mil miley's sales leapt after her TWERKING DISPLAY AT THE VMAs. This is a different musical landscape. Who buys records anymore? Mtv doesn't even play music videos anymore. You have to be outrage us. You have to call attention. Or nobody will see it. And your music will disappear into the night. Reporter: Rihanna and others do it. Robin thick does it. He doesn't strip down and gyrate. He has women do that for him. It makes me long for the days when the likes of doris day and ella fitzgerald, dressed up real nice and let their voices do the talking. ♪ Give me the simple life ♪ I really hope miley cyrus tones it down and lets us see her talent for what it is, instead of disguising it behind all of the sex. Reporter: Will she tone it down? Or will she continue taking a wrecking ball to our senses? I'm guessing the latter. For "good morning america," nick watt, abc news, los angeles. I hope my girls were not watching. Uh they better be in school right now. I think said it best. I did the most shocking thing of ALL AT THE VMAs. She kept her clothes on. Katy said. Eye on the talent. You've got it. Perhaps we can do a trend story on that, coming up next.
