Miley Cyrus and Sinead O'Connor make beautiful music together -- VIDEO

They may not be in the same room (ever), but Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor sound pretty great together. That is, in “Nothing Compares to Wrecking Ball,” a great Miley/Sinead mashup created by Robin Skouteris — a mixmaster who’s also recently done great things with Lady Gaga, The Prodigy, and La Roux.

I’d have thought “Wrecking Ball” would work better with a melodically similar tune like Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” or Bruno Mars’s “Locked Out of Heaven.” But in practice, the Sinead comparison is pretty perfect — and even more compelling than “Wrecking” mashups with either of those songs. (Though yes, this “Wrecked out of Heaven” mix is pretty great.) Plus, there’s the intentional similarity between Miley’s video and Sinead’s, which adds a neat mirroring element.

If you watch only one video of mostly bald white ladies crying in close-up today, make it this one.

Are you in on the Miley movement? MTV releases trailer for new Miley Cyrus documentary -- VIDEO

That’s right–Miley’s still got you talking, and she’s looking forward to keeping it that way for a couple of more weeks.

In anticipation for her new album, Bangerz, MTV releases a one-minute trailer for Miley: The Movement, the one-hour documentary special that depicts the day-to-day of the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana.

Packed with cameo appearances, from her We Can’t Stop producer Mike WiLL Made It and Britney Spears, the special takes a behind-the-scenes approach to capturing Miley before and after the MTV VMAs performance as well as her musical influences for her latest project.

“Everyone takes the VMAs so serious,” Cyrus tells Spears in the trailer. “I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun, I just wanna have fun!”

Miley: The Movement premieres Wednesday, October 2, 10p/9c on MTV. Watch the trailer below:

Miley Cyrus speaks about 'Wrecking Ball' video for first time

If you’re not one of the over 44 million who’ve already seen Miley Cyrus’ video for Wrecking Ball already, when you take a look, peek into her eyes, not her assets.

At least that’s what the Queen of Twerk stated in her interview with Z100’s Elvis Duran on Wednesday, calling in from a London photo shoot. “I think the video is much more,” she said. “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.”

Already garnering over 44 million views on YouTube, earning the record for most views gained in 24 hours, the Terry Richardson-directed clip begins with a close-up of Cyrus’ face as a tear rolls down her cheeks, followed by more provocative imagery of her licking a sledgehammer and swinging naked on a wrecking ball.

Cyrus 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. … If you look at my eyes, I look more sad than actually my voice sounds on the record. It was a lot harder to actually do the video than it was to even record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience.”

As she  gears up for the release of Bangerz this October, featuring appearances from Britney Spears, Big Sean, and Nelly, and weathers the controversy and hype surrounding her latest video and MTV VMA performance, Miley’s apparently not sweating it.

“Kind of anything that I do at this point it becomes such this big deal and for me,” she said. “I’m just having fun, and whatever people label it as, it doesn’t really matter, I’m just having fun.”

In other words, she’s just being Miley.
