Miley Cyrus isn't taking much of a holiday break.
After spending the last few weeks playing Clear Channel-branded Jingle Ball concerts in various cities (including Los Angeles), the controversial pop star on Thursday released a new music video for "Adore You," a spacey ballad from this fall's "Bangerz" album.
An unauthorized version of the clip appeared online ahead of schedule Wednesday, prompting Cyrus to complain on Twitter (spiced with some choice four-letter language) that her fans likely would have set a new record for number of views if the leaker hadn't directed some of that precious traffic elsewhere. (Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" video has been seen more than 438 million times on YouTube.)
Leak or no, though, "Adore You" is bound to rack up some impressive numbers: Like "Wrecking Ball," which depicted the singer working with heavy construction equipment minus any protective covering, the new clip takes an up-close-and-personal approach, in this case as Cyrus rolls around in bed with a video camera.
It's not quite safe for work, so we can't embed it here. But you know where to go to watch it.
