Miley Cyrus over the moon regarding the biggest hit song “Wrecking Ball”. It was also considering one of the emotional songs in her discography. She revealed that the popular song was not written by Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus cried while singing ‘Wrecking Ball’ at her Super Bowl pregame show.
According to the Cheat Sheet, “Cyrus was overcome with emotion while singing “Wrecking Ball” during her Super Bowl performance. The song has taken on new meaning for her in the wake of her divorce from Hemsworth, and she told the audience that the stress of the last few years (she got divorced and went through two breakups, and then the pandemic happened) still gets to her.
“Singing that song, ‘Wrecking Ball,’ about feeling completely broken and shattered … everyone suffering is different, even everyone’s threshold of pain”.
I wear a lot of glitter and I wear a lot of armor and I also wear my heart on my sleeve, and it gets broken a lot.” she added.
Cyrus told Ellen DeGeneres in October 2013, just one month after the announcement of her split, that Bangerz ended up telling the story of her relationship and breakup, although it wasn’t intended to.
“I feel like you can really find this arc of growth,” she said, adding, “It’s a real story.”
The question is that who is Miley Cyrus crying about in the ‘Wrecking Ball’ music video? The Hannah Montana alum created an Instagram Live series during the coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine called “Bright Minded,” during which she interviewed celebrity friends and tried to lift viewers’ spirits.
In an April 2020 episode, Cyrus talked about “Wrecking Ball” and what she was actually crying about while filming those memorable closeups. She said:
“When I did ‘Wrecking Ball,’ everyone thought I was crying over my breakup. But I was actually crying over my dog [who had just died]. And the whole time I was shooting [the video], there was a photo of my dog right underneath the camera. I couldn’t relate to the song that day but it doesn’t matter…I gotta find it. What’s something that really makes me feel like broken pieces? And it was losing my dog.”
“That was real,” she said of her crying. “My dog just passed away.”
She also reflected on the track in August 2020 to celebrate its seventh anniversary.
“7 years of Wrecking Ball. My concept of time is completely askew. Feels like a lifetime ago… but somehow only yesterday,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for all the support you gave me then and of course the love you’re continuing to show my art today. Forever grateful & inspired.”
