A longer version of the singer's kinky collaboration with artist Quentin Jones shows her nearly nude and modeling provocatively in a wild black-and-white mix of bondage and pop-art imagery.

A video featuring Miley Cyrus will be featured in the NYC Porn Film Festival's opening night, running alongside hardcore pornography, art videos and provocative discussions.

The singer's kinky collaboration with artist Quentin Jones, called "Tongue Tied," premiered last April via Nowness, showing the "Wrecking Ball" singer nearly nude and modeling provocatively in a wild black-and-white mix of bondage and pop-art imagery.

But that clip was only two minutes long, and the NYC Porn Film Festival listing says it runs more than twice that length — so it seems the work has been elaborated and will make a new debut at the event. In that video, though Cyrus never reveals her privates, she is nearly nude throughout and moving in seductive ways with strong sexual themes.

A rep for Cyrus says she will not be participating in the festival.

“Miley was proud to make a film with acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Jones. Neither she nor Quentin are participating in this ‘festival’ in any way," the rep said.

Adult magazine founding editor Sarah Nicole Prickett explained the piece then, writing, "As part of Cyrus' current Bangerz tour is a two-minute video directed by mixed-media artist and filmmaker Quentin Jones, whose signature soignée graphics and splashes of paint transform a pornoriffic-almost-parody into artsploitation. Stripping the color from our heroine's cartoonish persona, Jones goes in on popular symbols of sex: the fishnets; the beauty mark made darker like Marilyn's; the black collar fit for a 'Bunny. To Miley, as to a little kid, even the most dangerous object is a toy. And like a kid's, her near-nudity is hardly erotic. She's just happier naked. Her poses are jokes, even that infamous tongue--stuck out--remains firmly in cheek. She holds up the cardboard cut-out and winks. Get it? She's playing with herself."

"Tongue Tied" will be featured on the NYC Porn Film Festival's opening night, Feb. 27. The Pornhub-sponsored festival runs through March 1 at Secret Project Robot in Bushwick, Brooklyn, with tickets available here.
