apparently decided to bare all in the video for new single Wrecking Ball
because she wanted to show her "vulnerable side".
The promo - which has been directed by Terry Richardson - sees the 20-year old go fully naked as she sits on a demolition ball.
Following her raunchy We Can't Stop clip, the video for Wrecking Ball has once again caused a stir, with a source explaining to HollywoodLife.com exactly why Cyrus went nude for the video.
They said: "Miley has shot with Terry a lot over the years so she’s very comfortable with him and she trusts him.
“She chose him to direct her video because he’s all about pushing boundaries and making a statement. That’s what Miley’s into right now.
The insider added: "Miley loved the idea of going naked because it suits the song — she’s showing her naked emotions. "
"It’s her vulnerable side and it’s not something she shows very often, so having nudity made sense.”
Since the video premiere, the former Hannah Montana
star has been busy tweeting about the raunchy promo, which has since hit 12.3million views on VEVO - breaking One Direction
