Bonnie Says: Miley Cyrus’ New Video, ‘Who Owns My Heart’, Makes Her Officially Every Parent’s Worst Nightmare!

Posted Mon, October 11, 2010 7:32pm EST

Seventeen-year-old Miley’s new video — in which she crawls around on a bed — and is groped by a guy as she dances in itsy-bitsy hot pants and a plunging, backless camisole, has FINALLY provoked official parental condemnations.

The Parents Television Council — a group familiar with her still-on-TV-Hannah-Montana persona — issued a strong Miley condemnation to TMZ today.

“It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one,” Tim Winter, the president of the PTC, told TMZ. “It sends messages to her fan base that are dramatically 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,” Winter concluded.

Well Miley — we hate to say “I told you so,” but we here at HollywoodLife.com have been disappointed for months that you’ve chosen the route of sexualizing yourself to “sell” the new, non-teen image you’re after.

From walking around on the street with your bra showing multiple times, to hanging out in 21-plus bars and clubs, to simulating makeout sessions in your “Can’t Be Tamed” video, to giving lap dances to older men — Miley, you’ve been setting yourself up to be seen as a modern day Lolita, i.e. a sexual object for older men.

Why this helps your career is a true headscratcher. Your Hannah Montana fans don’t get it, their parents don’t like it, and, frankly, are women in their 20s and 30s really flocking to be your fans? That’s a big question mark.

But selling teen girl sexuality didn’t work out so well in retrospect for BritneyHit Me baby One More TimeSpears. You may not like it Miley, but over-sexualizing yourself was bound to finally inspire some serious parental backlash.

Miley is going to be the next Spears, considering her racism is the way she dresses is a bad influence to people of all ages especially teens.

This poor girl. Nothing you are doing hasn’t been done before. Aren’t there enough videos out there of singers half dressed? One would think you would be smarter than that and use your voice to sell your music. Instead, you have resorted to selling your body. Well, I hope that works for you because I guess your singing ability was not that great anyway. I also hope you learn from your predecessors and stay on the right track if you want to stick around. It’s hard to come back from rehab. Remember the pics of you smoking the bong? Pot is a gateway drug to harder substances right? See you at Malibu rehab. PS. Bring a sweater.

Miley is doing the typical things a 17 yr old does. As Hannah she was young and now the young lady is growing up and just has to learn how to adapt to her surroundings. This pic looks surprising to her to me. She didnt expect it. You dont have to hold the same childish image you have for life. Thats what growing up is ppl!! She will learn to calm down. Didnt Chris Brown, Britney, and Lil Wayne learn. When you get caught you either straigten up or be a Lindsy Lohan….need more help. Leave Miley alone! I love the chic shes cool. Do you Miley and learn from your mistakes like everyone else sweety!!

WTF? She’s not 18, but then again she’s not 8… Lay off the girl. She IS old enough to know what she’s doing and if this is the image she wants, then so be it. She won’t be the 1st to make $ off a sexual image, it’s what a LOT of girls do!!! Hello Pamela lol

And she’s nothing like Pamela either, so fdon’t start. Geesh! Nothing hardcore here, or even close to it. Lay off the girl and let her live her life and she will let you live yours! I can go on Craigslist 24/7/365 and find racier photos on there in Personals. Go yell at those women!

If teens want to follor her still, good, if not good – that’s a decision they will ahve to make. I am still following her. I understand this is AMERICA and we don’t have the right to control our proplr and what they do like Cuba does and such, so I respect than and still like her as an actress and singer.

WHY does one’s personal life aleways get dragged into light like this. It’s her PERSONAL life and if she wants to have a girl kiss her let her do it. Shame on you for reporting on this. There’s far worse stuff out there.

BTW, I am 15!!!

IT doesnt matter how she dresses like.
It’s up to Miley how she looks and if you guys cant handle it then you guys have to deal with it because you cant stop how a person looks. You wouldnt be all crazy if other normal people were dressed like that .You would probably wont care and walk away but miley is a STAR and you pay attention to her but shes a ordinary girl just like me and you. She’s grown-up up now she is not a liitle girl anymore and the reason why she changed her appearance is because she wanst to proove to people that Shes’s all grown up now and shes not no kid anymore.

When I heard Miley’s “The Climb” I was like this is her voice. I thought she would have been smart enough to bank on her vocal skills. Instead she is relying on sexuality. I honestly believe only young ppl are defending her, older more mature adults realize this isn’t the way to go. I don’t understand why the younger generation just can’t smartly watch what happened to their predecessors and learn from their mistakes. Oh yeah, apparently her fan base is dropping rapidly and so are her sales. Being an entertainer is knowing how to keep your fanbase. Its not about you, its about your fans. Thats how you keep a career.

I’m a strong/true fan to Miley and always will be, but this “sexy” thing is kinda getting out of control. I’m only 13. I grew up with Hannah. I respect your Miley side, but I don’t want you going around and acting like a slut all of the time.

Miley Cyrus unfortunately for her younger fans, is growing up. However she still is not 18 and so I dont feel like she should be able to even record a video like this….I personally dont like her, I have young daughters and I dont want them thinking that they can dress like this at any age, I dont feel showing off your body to percieve the “sexy iamge” is ok, I think that too many women are quick to take it off so they can appear like they may be more serious about your career…. but if your career only wants you because you will take it off….. then Vivid is where they should aim at.

I think that the industry is too quick to move along a change for young actresses/actors and they want a larger range of fans, but staying true to oneself is what fans should also idolize as well

Really shes every parent’s worst nightmare?!

Someone I know just had to have their THIRTEEN YEAR OLD committed to a psych ward for trying to harm herself. I’m pretty sure he would rather be in Miley’s parents position at this point! Miley is just trying to grown up. Look at any high school in America or the world for that matter you’ll see worse!! This is not the 1950’s things have changed since the people writing these “articles” were her age. She not out screwing a bunch of guys or snorting coke off a club table.

Get over her GROWING UP!!

I understand what a lot of ppls are saying abt Miley,But why would any parent in thier right mind would want Miley as a role model?I understand she has to grow up but come on now she don’t have to dress like that in her video’s<First and foremost she is a young lady she should carry herself as one if I had a daughter that age she wouldn't dress like a slut oh I forgot it's all abt the money these days everyone should have respect for themselve even if you're in the public eye.Because once ppls lose respect for you and you don't respect yourself then a the end of the day all you have is money maybe her mom and dad shouldve thought abt that before they let it get out of control
