Miley Cyrus: ‘I’d Rather Strip Than Cry’

Singer Miley Cyrus insists that she was happy to peel off for her Wrecking Ball promo but hated shedding a tear on camera.

The singer stripped to a pair of boots to swing on demolition equipment for the clip, attracting a slew of barbed remarks from critics accusing her of taking her sexy new image too far.

But the former Hannah Montana star is adamant she has no problem with nudity and was far more concerned with the segment of the video when she openly weeps on camera.

She tells YouTube channel VEVO, “For me, nudity has never been something that I’ve ever tripped about… I’d rather be naked in front of people than cry in front of people because I don’t like showing weakness and that shows a lot of, like, vulnerabilities. It was harder to be in that, like, emotional state in front of so many people on set rather than it just be about being naked.”
