Miley Cyrus Drops Emotional ‘Wrecking Ball’ Director’s Cut

Video is an unbroken take of close-up of Miley's face.

When you read “director’s cut,” you more than likely expect something exponentially riskier than what was released the first time around. And with Miley Cyrus, that turns out to be sort of true.

On Tuesday (September 24), she dropped the director’s cut for “Wrecking Ball” as a follow-up to the record-breaking Terry Richardson-directed music video. But while the original clip saw Miley wielding a sledgehammer and riding the titular ball, the director’s cut doesn’t really have any cuts. It’s an unbroken take of the heartbreaking close-up of Miley’s face, with her emotions on center stage. The only time Richardson cuts away is at the very end, where, after a quick director’s credit page, we see Terry and Miley laughing and mugging for the camera.
