Miley Cyrus’ racy new clip for “Adore You” leaked online yesterday, one day early of its scheduled release. The pop star shrugged it off. “We all know Smilers would break another record if it wasn’t for the fuck face who leaked my video,” the pop star tweeted of the Bangerz single. “Alllllll good! Keep smiling :)”
The suggestive clip finds Cyrus singing her devotional ballad while writhing beneath the covers, clad in just skin-colored undergarments as she simulates masturbation. The scene eventually switches to a bath and her outfit to skimpy black lace.
The video caps off a massive year for Cyrus, whose new record Bangerz – and all the nude, twerk-filled, cat-assisted and ganja-indulging antics accompanying it – solidified her spot as a new, unstoppable pop force. “I said I was going to take a year off before I made this record,” Cyrus told Rolling Stone earlier this year. “But it’s hard to take a break. It’s almost depressing when you’re not working. You’re so used to people calling your name, and that energy, and when you don’t have it anymore. . .”
Cyrus will help ring in 2014 when she appears and performs in Times Square on December 31st for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. (Other performers include Blondie and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.) She will also keep up that momentum when she hits the road behind Bangerz next year; the 38-date arena tour kicks off February 14th in Vancouver and will feature opening acts Icona Pop and Sky Ferreira.
