The 20-year-old singer, who is engaged to 'The Hunger Games' star Liam Hemsworth, appears naked in the video for her new song 'Wrecking Ball' but claims she was more nervous about exposing herself emotionally on camera.
She told the 'Elvis Duran and the Morning Show' on Z100 in New York on Wednesday (11.09.13): "I think the video is much more. If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds. The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate to; everyone has felt that feeling at some point."
She added: "If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable. Actually, if you look at my eyes I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record.
"It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.
"I was actually panicking last night because I felt like, for me, with 'We Can't Stop,' there was all this anticipation and all this time to build up to this one single. I have been so busy right now with 'We Can't Stop' still doing what it's doing and catching fire not just in the states but all over the world...I feel like I have so much going on."
Miley also hit back at critics of her recent raunchy performances.
She said: "Anything I do becomes such a big deal. I'm just having fun. Whatever people label it as, it doesn't really matter. I always want to switch it up."
