Miley Cyrus's transition from wholesome teen/tween role model to stick-figure pop slut is almost complete. She's just about finished filming the new film LOL
in which she plays a teenager who's coming of age and experimenting with drugs, sex and Brazilian bikini waxes. But just to give you a little taste of the new Miley Cyrus ahead of that film's release (because, c'mon, we all want to taste a little Miley Cyrus sometimes, right?), her new music video, "Who Owns My Heart"
is full of the kinds of naughty imagery we really shouldn't be getting from someone who's still 17 years old and, hence, a minor. That's the way the game is played these days, though, and Cyrus is desperate to shed her old Hanna Montana image in order to transition to more adult fare, despite the fact that parents everywhere are outraged over the new Miley Cyrus.
Speaking about the new music video, which features (among other things) an underwear-clad Cyrus squirming on a bed in sexually suggestive poses before grinding it out with both men and woman on the dance floor, Tim Winter, President of the Parents Television Council, told TMZ that "It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically opposed to everything she has done up to this point. Miley built her fame and fortune entirely on the backs of young girls, and it saddens us that she seems so eager to distance herself from that fan base so rapidly."
I wouldn't say she's distancing herself from that fan base. Sure, she may have built her fame and fortune on the backs of young girls, but if you watch that new video, it seems Cyrus is still using the backs of those young girls ... and their fronts ... and their tongues ... so is there really any harm being done here?
