US pop star Miley Cyrus may have had a massive hit with "Wrecking Ball" when it was released, but the star now says the video isn't something she wants to be remembered for.
The single, off Cyrus' 2013 album Bangerz, was an emotional ballad about a failed relationship. The memorable video to the song features the singer naked as she swings from a wrecking ball.
While the 24-year-old isn’t any stranger to controversy, she recently revealed she has regrets over the video.
The subject of the video came up while the "Malibu" singer was doing an interview on the Zach Sang Show, playing the game “Marry, Eff, Kill, with some of her greatest hits.
Host Zach Sang gave Cyrus three choices from her back catalogue, including one of his personal favourites: "Wrecking Ball".
“Marry would probably be "The Climb" because it still has a message I’m down with,” says Cyrus.
“Eff would be "7 Things", Kill would be "Wrecking Ball".”
Cyrus went on to say the video would always see her remembered as the naked girl on the wrecking ball.
“That’s something you can’t take away… swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives for forever. Once you do that in the mass that I did, it’s forever.
"I'm never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball. No matter how much I just frolic with Emu (Emu is Cyrus' pet Shetland sheep dog), I'm always the naked girl on the wrecking ball ... I should have thought how long that was going to have to follow me around."
She also admitted she'd hate it if the song was played at her funeral.
"That's my worst nightmare ... is being like, 'We'll always remember Miley,' and then that. 'She was a great person.'"
