Listen to Miley Cyrus on iHeartRadio

Miley Cyrus is putting her sledgehammer away for the moment. 

On Tuesday, she released the director's cut of the record-breaking video for "Wrecking Ball." 

In the new version, fans see almost-four full minutes of Miley singing the breakup song while weeping beginning to end.  Parts of her emotional performance were used between footage of her swinging naked on a wrecking ball in the video's original version. 

Tears stream down her face as she belts out the vocals, but true to form, the singer lightens the mood near the end by stealing director Terry Richardson's signature eyeglasses and sticking out her tongue.
