It's not terribly surprising that Cyrus would break Bieb's record – in addition to the huge fanbase she's amassed since her time as a teen star on Disney Channel's hit show, "Hannah Montana," she goes to great lengths in the video to shock and excite. In addition to gyrating throughout the video and grabbing her friends' rear ends, Cyrus makes out with a giant Barbie doll and twerks with giant teddy bears.
Before the three-minute clip is over, viewers can see a woman chopping of her fingers while pink goo spews out, goats wearing sunglasses, and a skull made out of French fries getting destroyed. And this is only the beginning!
On Wednesday, Cyrus tweeted to her 12.3 million followers:

As of now, the video has received more than 33 million views on VEVO; alone, and appearances this week on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Good Morning America" will likely help that number skyrocket even further.
When she's not twerking with furry animals, Cyrus has been in the studio working with songwriters including Pharrell Williams, Dr. Luke and will.i.am on her forthcoming full-length album, which is due out on RCA Records later this year.
