This young women sure does know how to cause controversy. The other day Miley Cyrus released her new video for her single "Who Owns My Heart" (which sucks btw). Immediately, Tim Winter, who serves as president of the Parents Television Council, told TMZ that the "Hannah Montana" star's sexed-up clip relays the wrong message to her teen following. "It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one," Winter said. "It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically opposed to everything she has done up to this point. Miley built her fame & fortune entirely on the backs of young girls, & it saddens us that she seems so eager to distance herself from that fan base so rapidly."
This isn't the first time the tiny bopper has faced controversy in her attempts to break away from her squeaky-clean, teen idol status. Her pole-dancing move at the at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards disturbed everyone (including me I believe I blogged about it) then she came out with Can't Be Tamed, features a much more vampy persona than her "Hannah Montana" alter ego.
Its completely understandable that she's trying to shed her Hannah Montana image. The show is about to end & she's 17 meaning she thinks she's 21. This is her coming of age time & she wants to be seen as a women, not the little girl everyone has come to visualize her as. Where I think she's going wrong is doing it all at once. She are an idol to millions of little girls & instead of just being like BAM I'm grown try to ease into it. It obviously is overwhelming to her viewers. Regardless, in a year she'll be 18 & no one will be able to say shit. Please lord don't let her be another Britney Spears! Watch the "sexy" video below.
