The music video for "Wrecking Ball" was directed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson -- known for an erotic style -- and shows the 21-year-old singer in skin-tight white underwear and cropped top, swinging suggestively from a wrecking ball. The former idol of tween girls around the world for her role in the television series "Hanna Montana" shattered her good-girl image when she performed last year at the Video Music Awards in a flesh-toned bikini and bent over and gyrated provocatively with singer Robin Thicke.

Premium music streaming subscriptions to hit 20 million in 2014

Thu, 08/21/2014 - 23:19

Twenty million people are estimated to be premium music streamers.In fact, according to Futuresource Consulting, revenues from these subscribers are expected to hit $3 billion this year. "Global consumer spend on streaming services in the US and Western Europe -- excluding personalised radio services -- reached almost $1.9 billion in 2013, with 59% growth expected this year to reach an estimated $3 billion, with most users using service provider apps on smartphones or tablets to access and play out music," says David Sidebottom, Senior Market Analyst at Futuresource Consulting. As well as established companies like Spofity and Deezer, Beats Audio and Amazon have both launched rival music streaming services this year and YouTube is preparing to roll out its own service that will offer users access to both music and music videos for a monthly fee. One of the driving forces behind the growing popularity of music streaming is, of course, the near ubiquity of the smartphone -- as Sidebottom notes, the majority of these premium services are being accessed on mobile devices -- but another piece of technology is also helping to drive more people to premium from freemium: namely, wireless speaker systems.
