I do not know how to deal with this video. We have a great pop ballad about breaking up, that is alternatively heartbroken victim and then full of the power of a woman scorned. The video has two sides too, we start with a vulnerable Miley crying, then suddenly she is naked and licking things! This strange dichotomy, instead of literally supporting the song comes off as the unneeded hyper-sexualization of Miley. It is gratuitous and unneeded, just… stop.

Overall, a great song that hearkens back to Kelly Clarkson’s Since U Been Gone, as a piece of music this has an interesting message, but add this overt sexualization of Miley, it falls from interesting to just pandering.
