UPDATE: According to NOWNESS, the video has now been pulled from the New York Porn Festival:


Miley Cyrus is already infamous for not really caring about what other people think, especially when it comes to her body. And more specifically regarding her naked body: google her – about 80% of the images of her are nude or semi-nude. She doesn't mind about that kind of thing. Other people do; it got her banned from performing in the Dominican Republic.

Taking it to the next level, entered a short film called Miley Cyrus: Tongue Tied, by Quentin Jones, into the New York Porn Festival, which opens on the 27th February. First shown as an interlude on her Bangerz tour, the film is in black and white, with the colour drained from the usually quite colourful Miley Cyrus, reflecting that her actions throughout – although typical of the sexually explicit singer – are somehow more serious.

To be reductionist, anything shot in monochrome becomes "more serious". To be optimistic, it seems as if Miley is trying to do something useful, or at least meaningful (in an artistic sense), with her body-focused creativity. With fishnets and latex and gags galore, already it's been compared to early Madonna music videos and, in light of its peppering of sadomasochism, with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Watch a snippet from the film below.
