When former Disney star Miley Cyrus hoisted herself upon that wrecking ball four years ago, she wasn't only shedding her threads but also her long-standing reputation as a wholesome, bubble-gum pop princess.
It's a well-worn trajectory of rebellion for many a former child star, but Cyrus stepped it up a gear, baiting controversy at every turn. And now, in the wake of her country and western-inspired new single 'Malibu', Cyrus has revealed her regret in filming the 'Wrecking Ball' video.
"That's something you can't take away. Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever," Cyrus said on the Zach Sang Show while playing a game of 'Marry, Eff, Kill' with her discography, choosing to kill 'Wrecking Ball'.
"I'm never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball," she added. "I should have thought how long that was going to have to follow me around. That's my worst nightmare, is that being played at my funeral."
