Miley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ Video Ruins University Statue After Kids Start Riding It Nude

Michigan's Grand Valley State University has removed a hanging sculpture after students inevitably turned it into a "Wrecking Ball" interpretation device. The video features Miley Cyrus riding a wrecking ball nude; Grand Valley's giant steel ball hanging from a 50-foot-cable has recently featured the same. "We've been reviewing this over the last couple of weeks, trying to decide whether we really need to look at structural integrity of the installation," says Tim Thimmesch, an associate vice president at the university. The statue was installed in 1995; it's now in storage. Students are deploying the hashtag #reinstalltheball.
