Miley Cyrus refuses to be tamed in new music video

In a not-so-subtle music video for her new single, “Can’t Be Tamed” - the first track from a soon-to-be-released album of the same name - Cyrus emerges as Aves Cyrus, an oversized creature wearing an impressive wing span and little else, stepping away from the nest and the cage she’d been holed away in.

“For those who don’t know me, I can get a bit crazy, have to get my way 24 hours a day cause I’m hot like that,” Cyrus sings. “Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention, like I’m under inspection, I always get the 10s cause I’m built like that."

Welcome to the next evolution of Miley Cyrus.

As the 17-year-old told E! News, “I don’t want to be in a cage. I want to be free and do what I love…I want to make the movies and the music that I want.”

Some have been a bit riled by the fact that Cyrus’s moves, alongside her backup dancers, are fairly suggestive, as is her choice of costume. But, Cyrus said that while “it is a sexy video...that’s not the premise. It’s not about being sexy or who can wear less clothes. It’s about explaining the song and living the lyrics instead of just being like, this is about me.”

As for her teen fans, she thinks they’ll get it since the song is about not fitting in. “For me,” Cyrus said, “it’s never been about fitting in. I’d rather stand out than fit in.”

    Gimme a break. There is nothing wrong with this video. Don't you remember being 17? I see nothing more than a young woman indulging in a hormonal fantasy while getting ready for a dance.

    According to my 11 year old daughter Miley Cyrus or her Hanna Montana alter ego no longer appeal to the young audience.

    You know every little girl grows up eventually, miley is doing a natural thing. Its parents responsibility to keep their kids on the disney channel and off MTV. The lyrics themselves are the same as Female singers have been singing for years...Leave the girl alone let her parents handle her "inappropriate" behavior or we will have another brittany on our hands. She is blossoming and no one can stop that! Go Girl!

    Honestly, the video and lyrics suck horribly. The fact that she's rather attractive and barely dressed is the only reason I don't regret watching the video.
    For those saying she's too young for this sort of thing, I'd like to point out that Britney Spears was only 16, younger than Miley is now, when the video for "baby one more time" came out. That video was made over a decade ago, and it was a lot more suggestive.
    Her making videos like this does not make her a bad person, nor does it mean she'll go down a bad path in her personal life.
    Just wanted to make my peace with the internet.

    I thought Miley and her family were Christians? No Christian would act or dress like she is and no Christian parent would allow it, no matter how famous they are.

    Another young entertainer who became popular too young and fast is now heading for the same path as all the other ones, Brittany; Lindsey. Money and fame has gone to her head and she's heading for a down hill spiral fast. Her parents need to wake up fast! She's only 17 she's not a woman yet. As far as what she's becoming – my daughter won't be one of her fans much longer.

    A person can only be a good role model if, in fact, they are not playing a "role" when they are in public. Nothing is more stressful to one's core being then to live a life of lies.

    As Miley, or anyone, grows and changes, then they need to give themselves the right to continue to be true to the person they are becoming and not try to be who everyone wants them to be. It's healthy and wise to do so.

    While I personally like her energy I can barely stand her nasal way of singing, but that's just me.

    Big deal–give her a break. She CAN actually sing, and her voice has a unique quality, unlike so much of what you hear on the radio that sounds like it was created in a lab. Why bag on her looks? That's cruel. She's a pretty girl, and hopefully she figures out exactly how to handle the transition from squeaky clean Disney star with adoring 7 year old fans, to serious artist with a real career ahead of her. How she handles herself during the years from 17-21 or so will make all the difference, and I for one hope she can get it under control.

    All of these comments are so true and actually gave me a good laugh this afternoon. Her and her Dad stepped on a gold mine with Hannah Montana deal. I guess by her lyrics to her new song she thinks pretty highly of herself–she's hot like that and she gets all the "10's". Get over yourself Miley, you are an average looking teenager, if you weren't Hannah Montana-no one would give you a second look if you were walking in a mall. I agree another train wreck just waiting to happen.

    To the lady that says I must not have kids, I do, and would never consider having any entertainer as a role model for them. No more that if I were to have Charlie Sheen as my role model, but I still think he and his show are hilarious. I taught them how to understand and know the difference. Imagine that, a parent being a parent. Think before you speak, it works really well! To the lady whose child destroyed all her Miley stuff, good for her, if you don't want to spend the money, it is your choice. Pathetic, really, it is just business?? This 17 year old kid is moving away from the teen money, that is business. Your pathetic if you don't understand this. Also check your own CD collection, in particular some of the lyrics, you will be amazed at what you listen to. To the lady talking about how Taylor Swift is a better role model, hmmm, all wet on stage with a short dress on at her age, kind of odd, don't you think!!

She is in the ENTERTAINMENT industry. She's not a cop or a teacher or a fireman. Her purpose is to entertain and be creative.

I mean, where are your parents? You are 17 and thinking about these things? You are a role model kid, choose another route in your career, many have achieved, to the point of Oscars, without even thinking – let alone doing – what you have in your plans. You are forbidden from my TV screen...and I am NOT a conservative person BTW, but that's too much, please think before acting!

    1) All the folks who are ranting about her behavior, please check your language: if you are taking a 17 year-old to task for her behavior, you might want to find less inflamatory words than the ones I see. Walk the talk.
    2) The outfit covered more than most swimsuits and the dance moves, in an era where Michael Jackson's hand motion below the wait seems quaint was rather restrained.
    3) She is a 17 year old young woman not the parent of every young girl in America –and, yes I do have kids. Just like my kids know they are not allowed to act like/dress like their older cousins, they can figure out Miley's getting older and watch Hannah re runs on Disney. If you don;t want your 8 year to see the video, don;t let her/him watch it.
    4) It is astounding how many people have consigned this intelligent, talented young woman to an early end of career, descent into the tawdry side of entertainment because of one video.
    5) Let's all remember what we did at 17. Bet if it was caught on video, there'd be a little less name calling around here.

    I think everyone should wait a while before predicting Miley's doom or the doom of her young fans. I've seen her interviewed and she actually seems to have significant character, especially for someone 17 years old. You can't blame her for becoming a young woman and I'm not sure she's being such a bad role model in that regard.

    hey byte this, This girl has spent her life doing what everyone else wanted her to do.

As far as role models if your children think of entertainers as role models, You are not doing your job as a parent.... I also agree with another comment that was made earlier, I am also a musician and music and the way it is recorded is a dissapointment these days simply because it can't be performed on stage the way it comes out of the studio. So the live shows sound really bad.

I'm sure she's paid attention to the Spears and Lohans of the world, and I for one, wish her all the best. let her do what she wants, we all live and learn by our failures, and as for a role model, maybe we as parents, should start teaching our kids to look to -us- as role models.

    It is not a prerequisite to have kids to recognize whether someone is a proper role model or not. I was a child at one point, and I didn't look up to celebrities as personal heroes. They were entertaining, yes, but they played fictional characters. I thought Han Solo was awesome as a kid, but behind it all, it was Harrison Ford and it was only a movie. I wanted to be an astronaut long before I even knew what Star Wars was. There is a difference between what your kids like and who they look up to.

    Obiviously, the person that says she is not a role model doesn't have kids. My girls only watch t.v. on the weekends and they loved her show. My husband got laughs too. They have some of her music, movies, tee shirts, hats and such. They even wanted their hair fixed in pigtails like "Hannah's". I don't need the trashy 17 year old Miley in their lives and they think she is becoming nasty too. They bring me her crap to get rid of......lol
    But she is 17 years old.....I know because I was 17 too that one makes stupid mistakes and that's why you have parents to guide you. She is not grown up yet ....she should still be in school!

    She's free to do this kind of thing, but she fails to realize that parents are also free to stop spending money on her merchandise, too. I, for one, say good riddance. I was never that thrilled that my daughter liked her, but since her show wasn't that bad, I reluctantly let her watch it. I'm glad I don't have to watch another Hannah Montana show in my lifetime!! I'm just wondering what is going to get her first - a breakdown or drugs? I'm guessing the drugs will come first because she is going to be pressured to get thinner. She's a little too pudgy and chipmunk cheeked to be able to pull off the pop tarte image. Not that I think she is heavy - I'm just saying the current in look is anorexic with breast implants and she needs a lot of work to achieve that.

    Prime example of why people should not prop up celebrities on a pedestal. More often than not, pop idols are manufactured by the industry to appeal to a specific demographic (in Miley Cyrus' case, to the pre-teen demographic). There's nothing of substance there, only visual appeal and marketing. Miley's received a great deal of fame and money off of her status, but nothing noteworthy or deserving of that. She's not a role model; Christa McAuliffe was a role model; along with women like Amelia Earhart and Clara Barton. People that make a difference in the lives of others should be looked up to.

    I have to question parents and media who constantly put actors and professional sports players in front of childern as role models. Just because the media chose them to be the next money maker does not mean they are perfect people. This is a great example of blurring the lines between a character actor and an a real person . Wake up, stop expecting these individuals to be a role models for your children.

    Idiots, she is an entertainer not a role model for you little girls. You as a parent should be the role model. She is just doing her job. I hate idiots who let the rest of the world raise their children instead of doing their job as a parent. It is always someone elses fault, isn't it?? Wow! You peopel kill me. Half dressed, that was what any kid does when they put on a bathing suit and hang out at the local pool. What is it like to walk around with your head up you A$$ your whole life? Just so you know, I never had any entertainer as a role model, my parents were my only true role models. They did a good job, regardless of what some A$$ clown might say about me after reading this.

    I think the main issue most ppl have is Miley did the transformation dramatically. She needs to change and broaden her base but the right way to do it is gradualully. She still has one last season on Disney. over that time she could start broadening out. Make it the right way & the right path so she could end up being a better person than Britney or others. I just hope she has seen & learned from other teen stars mistakes & not go down the path of drinking, drugs, and partying. Her music is ok its not the best out there she does have a few good song. her acting is ok but remember she's mainly only had Disney acting there only so much you can do with that. As a role model in a way she is to a point. i do few family should Always be a childs main role model. My daughter has watched Miley for the past few yrs & knows at 15 Miley is not a role model & understand she needs to move on to other roles from Disney b/c of her age. Maybe Miley should braoden out to normal TV shows play her age on a more edgy serious role. a way to break out of Disney without taking the clothes off. But only time will tell where she'll be in 10yrs and her next few yrs will tell us the path she'll go on; really growing up or growing down.

    Since I'm not a little kid, I really don't find much in her act to interest me. She's talking to her young fans with vids like this, and at some point she will stop connecting with them because her experiences have changed her too much. Debbie Gibson came out of the blue with a self-written album that struck every young girl like an arrow in the heart and said exactly what they wanted to say, but after a couple years of tours and wealth and fame, she wasn't on their wavelength anymore and her albums stopped selling.

    I think that we do not need to keep saying that she is growing up. 17 years old is not grown up and we need to understand that at 17 you shouldn't be half dressed at all you are still a child not an adult. As far as the roll model thing. Come on people pay attention to what your kids are doing. and I for one have a 4 yr old who used to like Hannah and now doens't want to watch her anymore. So those of you who have 13 and 15 year olds that are that impressed with her you better watch out cause she will have them screwed up if you don't influence there lives first.

    First of all, I don't like music with generic inspirational messages that mean absolutely nothing in the real world. And I don't like movies where teens try to have real people feelings. It's safe to say I'm not a Miley Cyrus fan. That being said, Miley Cyrus isn't the reason you didn't take your kids camping, or to the symphony, or to see a PG-13 movie when they're 10, or that you moved to the suburb and removed them from culture and the real world and allowed Miley Cyrus be their role model. Just because she's famous doesn't mean she's responsible for every little girl in the entire world. She's busy being a little girl herself, so raise your kids.

    Rarely do I ever post on things like this. I think it's all stupid. Either way, I really don't care much for Miley Cyrus, and don't care which way she goes. Parents, I do believe you are the ones who need to grow up. It's not your time frame, that was twenty years ago, we don't care about your values anymore, there are new ones now. Stop forcing your views on what is good and pure or not down your children's throats. Let them decide for themselves what is good or bad. If Miley wants to go down this road, so be it. If your children really want to continue to adore Miley, there's no fire in Hell that's going to stop them, you're wasting your time if you try. If they don't care for Miley's actions and don't want anything to do with her anymore, then again, so be it. This is called free will. It's what the supposed "God" gave us.

    By the way, i'm only nine. If you couldn't tell, I am very capable of making my own choices and deciding on my own views on things. If you would let them, your children would be able to as well.

These stars need to keep the fans in mind and have consideration for the parents and their values. Britney's a mom, she must understand. Even though, sometimes I actually question her sanity for motherhood. Who recalls driving with the baby on her lap? or almost dropping the baby on his head??

    So she thinks she has talent and is more than just the next product of the Disney machine? All she is and all she has was built by Disney for a specific demographic. Throw that away at your own peril. There are already 3 others who have replaced her in the Disney galaxy of auto toned young cuties in generic laugh track shows, and carefully presented on the Disney radio channel. She should accept and embrace that she is a product of a system, and work to help kids, not "express herself artistically".

    Shame on all the parents that used this young adolescent with a freak childhood as a role-model for their children. Like everything else in the entertainment world, whats behind the persona is far from the facade we see on the screen or stage.

    Step up and be a role model to your own kids and not try to hire someone to do it for you.

    If we continue to financially support this kind of behavior the we are all guilty of contributing to the ultimate outcome. Stop giving them attention and maybe, just maybe they will hit the brick wall sooner and wake up and join the world of decency. If not, then our kids will emulate us and consider this to be acceptable and shape themselves in this pathetic manner so they too can get the attention they are lacking at home.

As far as the role model thing goes...we dont pick who our children consider role models they do. At one point i thought the little girl might have potential..boy was i wrong and for that matter how do we know she isnt on some kind of drugs or drinking. What child star do you know that hasnt come out and verified that they didnt use drugs and alcohol. These young ladies in the limelight need to understand they are misguiding todays youth. For all of you who think she should "go girl" wait till its your daughter putting herself out there. Miley is just as ridiculous as B. Spears, P. Hilton, L. Lohan.

    Miley was ok for entertaining kids. Most kids are easily entertained, and have no real discriminating taste when it comes to "talent" (Case in point: Justin Beiber).

    But Miley's growing up and trying to transition into a more mature "artist", to expand into a more "mature" market. It will flop, she will bottom out, the vultures of the mass media will keep us updated with every one of her humiliating moves, and it will be sad and hard to watch. But watch it we will...with a seething glee no less, because Americans applaud when a star rises, only to later mock and sneer as the same star falls.

    So what were you expecting? Beethoven's 5th? It is pop music, and it has a shelf life. I've heard (and tapped my foot to) worse. You say her music is simplistic, the lyrics shallow, her talent marginal? Since when did THAT ever make a difference?

    She dresses somewhat 'racy'... for a 17yo? Are you kidding? OK, not necessarily tween material anymore, granted. Still, cut her some slack. There is alot more twaddle out there, she is far from being the worst.

    BTW I'm not a fan, but I do know of her. I wish her well and hope she stays out of real trouble (emphasis on 'real'). Maybe she will mature into a real talented artist after she has stopped being 'managed'. Until then, let a teen make some non-fatal mistakes, or minor goofs. She seems nice enough, and has had some good breaks. Lets see what she does with it now.

    And ease up on the teen. She ain't Mother Theresa, nor Bach.

    And while she isn't super good looking, she is pretty enough and seems confident enough in herself. Again, she is just trying to be an ENTERTAINER.

    To all the commentators,

    Miley is not a role model to my kids, as a matter of fact my daughter do not care for her and have never and she is 8. It is all about healthy parenting. My daughter do not look to Disney characters for how to act they look to me and I teach them by instilling healthy values and morals. The problem with most of these comments is that you all expect these child stars to help you raise your kids; you bore them you raise them not Miley or any child stars for that matter. Miley is a product of her environment and unhealthy parenting. Simple, yes teenagers rebel but this is more than rebel; this is acting out with no parents to teach her healthy values.

    I saw her on Jay Leno's show and the outfit she had on was disgraceful. She is trying to show off everything she has which is not much. If i was her parents i would make her war some clothes less revealing.
    You could see her bra with nothing to put in it and such a little twit.
    She tries to act like an adult but you can see she is just a child
    So sorry her parents don't take more responsibility for her up-bringing

    Looks to be another Lindsey in the making....which is saddening...where are the parents in this picture? Did they forget that they have a teenage daughter? Have they not watch the fall and demise of Lindsey, Brittney, although she seems to have learned to remain in control of herself and her situations-of course, this is after her father stepped into the picture and took control before who knows what happened.
    It is such a waste...although I am not a cyrus fan...I'm just wondering when did parents stop being parents...is it when the teenager is now paying the parents paycheck? Supporting the family? Hollywood seems to give these kids a false sense of importance....reality checks need to be put into place by parents of these kids...

    I really don't care so much about Miley. But I do respect her decisions. What I don't understand is the "role model" mentality of some parents. Everything should start at home. Teach your kids values. You may not be aware of it but, kids do emulate what they see at home not what they see on TV or movies or even at school. Stop putting the blame on these celebrities and start taking responsibilities for your kids upbringing. Preachy? Yes!! It hurts? Yes!! But it's the truth. Most importantly, respect your kids and treat them with intelligence. They say it takes a community to raise a child i that's bull. It only takes one responsible parent to raise a responsible child. My Mom raised all six of us children by herself (with some help from my grandma) and we were poor. I should say that all of us her kids are doing just fine.

    To a mother who has taken my daughter to 2 Miley Cyrus concerts when in Nashville as birthday gifts. Her new ways and actions are very disappointing. I think a 17 she doesn't know who she "is" yet and the actions she is taking as a young girl in the public eye now will scar her forever. To her parents she is still a minor you do have the say so in the things she does and career path she takes. But look they are getting what they strive for lots on public attention. It's just ashame my daughter has always been a fan on Miley's now I have to sit her down and tell her she not who you thought she was. We enjoyed the Hannah Montana show together the southern twist really gave us something to laugh about and relate to.Now I wish I would not have encouraged it.

Parents, it's time to tell your kids to tear down their Hannah Montana posters, get rid of her albums and videos, and stop buying into her crap. We all need to shut the radio off or change channels when her song comes on and we all should just avoid her new album. Stop giving her money and maybe she will either realize that she sucks or should change her ways. Boycott her in everything that she does. Talk to your children and tell them how wrong what she is doing.

I'm sorry but at 17 no girl need to dress like that and dance provocatively, it's hard enough for teenagers these days to "fit in". Daddy Billy doesn't want her to be a has-been like he was so he and her mother allow this, as long as the money comes in who cares right? We'll see what happens to her in the future but sadly I would have to agree with all of the people that said the next Spears, Lohan and Hilton.

    While not very original, her lyrics and music do reflect typical adolescent angst, and is a reflection of her growing independence and maturity.

    Here's one more sad story of the power of money and fame. I think this was a genuinely good Christian family...like the Simpson family (Jessica, Ashlee) who got caught up in the whole Hollywood thing and lost their sense of self. I feel sad for you Miley.

    I wish the parents of this girl would wake up, I've read all these comments and so many people are calling this girl names, her parents need to do what's right by her or she will end up like so many other girls in Hollywood it is ashamed when money is more important than morals and is apparently blinding her parents putting too much emphasis on the wrong things in her daughter's life, what is going to happen to her when she is 25 like so many other "pop" stars, eventually someone better comes along

    just look at all the trashy behavior on TV, movies, books. Women love this stuff. It sells. It is about money. Not role models. Soap operas have been around forever. Who is the audience? Women. It starts at an early age these days.

    I can't believe how this is turning out. I am ashamed that these young woman feel the need to show so much skin. Yes it is about the music but why do you have to show flesh just to make something sell. The only people that sells to is perverts.

    Miley thinks she's all about NOT fitting in??? Paris Hilton, Britney, and Lindsey Lohan are one step ahead of her in this category. When are the young women of today going to realize that men don't have to resort to these low tactics to get respect? It's about time women start respecting themselves and demand respect from others without having to demean themselves to get it!

    Here's an idea: How about you as parents be role models for your children rather than constantly expecting celebrities to do it for you. Miley is 17, more or less an adult, and will do what she wants. Her job isn't to raise your kids for you or be a moral compass for them, it's to live her life how she wants.

    Uh, definitely not a 10... Little does she know the media is playing her like a pawn... "Sure Miley, we think you're a talented artist!" I'm sure her agent is enjoying the profit while telling Miley she's one of a kind. I'll give her another 5 years before the beer gut starts showing and her face gets even worse. What a puppet..

    Get over yourselves...she is almost 18. She can't cater to all the 6-12 year olds anymore! Everyone grows up eventually. Let her live her life and put out the music/videos that she wants. There are more girls her age and younger that are pregnant or have already had kids so bravo Miley for not being apart of the crowd. Do your thing!

    As a father, and someone who has a teenage sister-in-law I can actually understand what Miley is doing. If anything, she's not breaking from her teenage fans, she's accomodating them. Actually have a conversation with a teenage girl or see how they act these days and it certainly is not Hannah Montana. I think Miley's actions, as tragic and depressing as it might be, are typical of a 17 year old girl.

    Ever hear about a little thing called Teenaged Rebellion?

    She's been held under the Disney thumb for so long, what did you think was going to happen when she started to get "control" over her own music / life / whatever?

    But yes, I am like the rest of you, expecting this to quickly be a train wreck... Aren't mommy and daddy proud now?

    The girl will be 18 this year..take a look at what other 18 year olds are doing in the industry without all the criticism.

    I think it's just hard for people to go along with the change. At least she isn't doing drugs...yet!

    If you don't like it, don't subject your kids to it. Plain and simple.

    same ol story, child star train wreck. jonas bros will be next.

    who cares,

    the only real damage this is doing is to the music industry. it perpetuates that if you dress trashy, put out mediocre music that has more than likely been auto tuned to hell and back, you will be a star.

    it's lowering standards, nobody needs talent anymore.

    She can do what she wants in my opinion, but the fact that the target market for Miley's songs is currently children is where the problems arise and the fact that she advertises on Disney which is a channel for children.

    You are so right pmoney....We saw what happened to Brittney....so sweet and all the young girls adored her then the next thing she is kissing Madonna and hardly any clothes on. I'm really disappointed in Miley....I was hoping so that she wouldn't turn that way. Plus I read an interview where she said she didn't care what people thought. WELL it's the people that bought her stuff and went to concerts. I think she is a spoiled little girl.

    How lame. When you are wearing little – who is actually going to believe the asinine argument that it's "about the music." Of course, she can't sing either so the argument is moot either way.

    She has become a horrible role model for young girls.

    Parents – teach your kids values and what is right! Miley has become the perfect example of what girls shouldn't emulate. Be strong, be independent, be smart – don't be like this sad example of a "star."

    Bye-bye Miley! Too bad you're giving up that Hannah Montanna thing, because since your movie flopped & now your trying to act all grown up your singing career is doomed, you're gonna be left with nothing.
