Video | Mikewillmadeit « 23 » ft. Miley Cyrus & wiz khalifa & juicy J
Another week, another Miley Cyrus music video. This time it’s for her song « 23, » from record producer Mike Will Made It, featuring Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa. The video and song pay tribute to basketball legend Michael Jordan — his jersey number, now retired, is 23.
In the video, Mike Will Made It takes over a school’s intercom to play Cyrus’ tune, creating an all-out party, which leads to Miley smoking in bathrooms and sitting on basketball hoops. The foam finger that appeared in Cyrus infamous MTV Video Music Awards’ performance also makes a cameo.
We wonder if the video is also a tribute to Britney Spears. While « 23 » is more risqué than Spears’ debut video for « Hit Me Baby One More Time, » there are a few notable similarities: classroom bells, unamused students in class and bouncing basketballs.

It’s only been two weeks since Miley Cyrus debuted « Wrecking Ball, » in which the naked singer swings on — what else? — a wrecking ball. She also released an extremely GIF-able music video for her single « We Can’t Stop » in June.
Both of Cyrus’ previous music videos broke Vevo records, with « Wrecking Ball » garnering 19.3 million views in just 24 hours.
The twerk-loving pop star is releasing a documentary « Miley: The Movement » on MTV on Oct. 2, and her album Bangerz drops Oct. 8.
