Director's Cut Of 'Wrecking Ball' Video Only Focuses On Miley Cyrus' Face

Miley Cyrus hit 14 million Twitter followers this week, and she celebrated the milestone by releasing the director's cut of her latest music video, "Wrecking Ball." Directed by boundary-pushing fashion photographer Terry Richardson, the original visuals to Cyrus' latest single alternated between tight shots of her face as she cried and footage of her riding a wrecking ball naked and licking a sledgehammer. Richardson's cut of the music video focuses solely on Cyrus' face, giving the video a more emotional feel. Cyrus recently defended the original video, telling Z100, "I think the video is much more, if people get past the point that I'm naked and you actually look at me. You can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds."
