Miley Cyrus took it all off for her "Wrecking Ball" video, swinging nude -- save for a pair of work boots -- on the title object. She received plenty of flak for the racy video, most likely because of her age and the fact that she's a role model for millions of young girls.

But she's definitely not the first to bare all in a music short, plenty of other artists have either gone nude or had a model, a girlfriend -- even a model girlfriend -- strip down for one of their videos.

10 Shows Netflix Should Revive

May 23rd, 2013 2:30pm EDT
Netflix revived the Bluth family, so we thought we'd share a list of 10 other shows worth reviving.

1. Terriers

FX's barely watched drama about two private investigators was at times gut-wrenching, heart-warming, nostalgic, regretful, beautiful, poignant sad, moving. Terriers told the story of Hank and Britt, an ex-cop and a soon-to-be ex-thief. FX's president John Landgraf couldn't justify a renewal due to the pitiful season 1 numbers. The series hasn't enjoyed post-series success because the DVDs haven't been released. The series finale is essentially perfect for the series, but I'd lov...
