THE VIDEO: FIRE (EXPLICIT)

TEXT NATASHA STAGG



Many video vixens have graduated to full on celeb status since their silent roles: Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler started out in one of Liv's dad's videos, before become the ruling queens of 90s teen cinema in Clueless and Empire Records, respectively, and J.Lo was a Fly Girl before she was Selena...

Less common is the route from stadium-level superstar and Hollywood A-lister to music video cameo. Such are the surprises Miley Cyrus likes to throw our way these days, though. From Disney Channel's Hannah Montana to rule-breaking V cover girl, Cyrus has ignored any expectations of grandeur and appeared now as basically an extra in videos for Snoop Lion and Big Sean (premiering today; watch above), before the release of her much anticipated album.

For "Fire (Explicit)," Big Sean's heartfelt second single released off Hall of Fame (due out August 27th), the video needed someone who's really been through it. And as we've said before, Miley has LIVED. In this vignette, she becomes (for once!) quiet, introspective, and (super closeup of the eyes here) soulful. We'd say she does the really-real lyrics justice with that one look. The spot-on styling by our own Haley Wollens is no small contribution to this classic, too.
