Originating on the Bangerz Tour as a sex-filled interlude between, well, the sex-filled stage sets, Miley's racy bondage-themed visual was one sexual moment among many during Cyrus's two hour set, but on the February 27th it'll get its own moment to shine. The visual, shot and edited by Quentin Jones, is set to open the NYC Porn Film Festival.
Produced as part of erotic online magazine, Nowness, adult entertainment critic Sarah Nicole Prickett explained the video when it debuted last year:
Stripping the color from our heroine’s cartoonish persona, Jones goes in on popular symbols of sex: the fishnets; the beauty mark made darker like Marilyn’s; the black collar fit for a 'Bunny. To Miley, as to a little kid, even the most dangerous object is a toy. And like a kid’s, her near-nudity is hardly erotic. She’s just happier naked. Her poses are jokes, even that infamous tongue—stuck out—remains firmly in cheek. She holds up the cardboard cut-out and winks. Get it? She’s playing with herself.
Which seems like a very wordy way of saying what Miley's been telling us about the Bangerz era all along. She isn't trying to be sexy, she isn't trying to be hot, she's trying to be provocative. It'll be interesting to see how the clip is revamped for the Porn Festival, where the visual is going to doubled in length, but if Miley's proven anything over the last year and a half it's that she won't settle for simply being talked about - she wants to shock. And the more she twerks and strips and grinds on hotdogs, the harder she has to work to get a reaction, but it's highly doubtful that she won't rise to the occasion.
This is likely to be a good move for Cyrus. I mean, okay, when it comes to festivals, it's no Glastonbury but Miley's bound to be pretty pumped about her adult debut which is bound to set tongues wagging just in time for people to purchase their copy of the 'BANGERZ TOUR' on DVD.
Taking to Instagram this morning, Miley revealed that the home release of her 2014 show was coming next month:
Rather than simply featuring footage of the live show, according to the official press release 'BANGERZ TOUR' will include "behind-the-scenes content focusing on the tour and her personal life," which is bound to be entertaining since from what we gather from her many, many public statements on the topic, it would appear that all Miley does in her personal life is smoke weed and abuse Instagram.
Like everything Miley Cyrus, both the DVD and porn outing are bound to be as amazing as they are controversial. Say what you like about the former Disney star, she knows how to entertain.
