Looks like someone needs to be grounded! Seventeen-year-old Miley Cyrus has upset a parents group with her latest video, which was deemed too racy and damaging to her young fans.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Parents Television Council disapproves of Cyrus's "Who Owns My Heart?" video, which features the former "Hannah Montana" star writhing in bed in lingerie, seductively applying makeup in her underwear, wearing a revealing top, showing lots of leg in the back of a limo and dancing suggestively with both men and women at a club.
"It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one," PTC president Tim Winter told TMZ of the Disney star, who previously posed for Vanity Fair in nothing but a bedsheet, pole-danced at the Teen Choice Awards and steamed things up in her "Can't Be Tamed" video.
"It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically opposed to everything she has done up to this point," Winter said of the video. "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."
For her part, Cyrus, who turns 18 on November 23, has told MTV that her new image is simply part of her development as an artist and an adult, and that she's learned to shrug off her critics. "You gotta do what you gotta do," she said. "That's life for you. That's life in the spotlight. It's never gonna change."
