Sexy New Miley Cyrus Video Blasted By Parents Group

Hollywood Records
 

She may sing otherwise, but the Parents Television Council is begging for Miley Cyrus to be tamed.

In a statement obtained by TMZ.com, Council president Tim Winter slams the 17-year-old for sending the wrong message in her "sexualized" new video.

In the clip, a pantless Cyrus gyrates on her bed while primping for a night on the town. Once she arrives at a nightclub, the teen singer caresses her chest while she gropes older men on the dance floor.

According to an Oct. 8 poll, more than 75% of UsMagazine.com readers said Cyrus — who also came under fire for a 2009 Teen Choice Awards performance where she pole danced — was too raunchy. Watch the video.

"It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one. It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically opposed to everything she has done up to this point," agrees Winter. "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."

Cyrus on the other hand, insists she's just being Miley.

"I'm just living life," the teen queen recently said in a YouTube video, expressing her gratitude to her loyal fans. "I'm just like y'all!"
