Miley Cyrus --

Guilt-Tripped Over Sexy New Video

10/9/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The backlash over Miley Cyrus' new body-grinding, panty-sporting, sexed up music video has already begun -- with a powerful parents organization ripping Miley for turning her back on young fans.

The video in question is "Who Owns My Heart" -- in which a blindfolded Miley (who's still 17 years old BTW) can be seen writhing around on a bed in her underwear ... before entering some other sexually charged situations. 

Now, Tim Winter -- President of the Parents Television Council -- tells TMZ, "It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one."

Winter continues, "It sends messages to her fan base that are diametrically 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."

Our house has had enough of Miley. Our daughter made up her mind after the first "risky" video she put out. She removed everything "Miley" from her room and gave it to good will. We will no longer watch any of her shows, listen to her music or purchase anything she puts out. It's obvious that she is lacking parental guidence and she is going to ruin her career.

@218 newsflash : Hannah Montana is as real as this video is . So that already WAS a lie . The fact your kid - at age 12 , no less - is incapable of distinguishing between fact and fiction tells me a lot more about parenting than about any supposed ethics - or lack thereof - of Miley .

Even some adults seem to have a difficult time letting go of an "image " ( which is totally fabricated by Disney) this girl at one point used and are /were incapable of distinguishing fact from fiction. You THINK you know this girl - that's the purpose of image-building- but nothing could be further from the truth. The image you see in Hannah Montana is a lie just as this image is .

Now that she's growing up she realizes that if she dosen't show her body to distract from that fact, she'll have no singing career. And the older she gets, the more crazier she have to be in order to remain relevant. And as long as her body keeps getting hot, she'll remain relevant.

Britney Spears can't sing quack and she wears bras and panties on stage and boom she wins a grammy and tons of MTV awards and she sells millions of cds and is considered a legend in the music industry.I don't blame Miley Cyrus if she copies Britney's tactics.

@225 They said the same about Madonna when she made the "like a virgin " video. I can vividly recall critics blabbing about how this was "a one day fly" , she had "no talent whatsoever " etc. yet here we are and Madonna has proven to be anything BUT a one day fly or a one-hit wonder .You can't form any definite conclusions based on the very short career of these girls.

Britney is still successful for example, as is Christina Aguilera , both of them were also deemed one-hit wonders. Miley already has had so much success most other artists can only dream about that. You cannot have that amount of success for numerous years in a row if you are completely talentless. People might be dumb, but not that dumb....

I still don't understand what all the fuss is about. This video isn't even on American TV! The single isn't released to the US. But like everything else it is on youtube, but if you let your kids surf the 'net unsupervised this video is the least of your worries. Even if this was on MTV, what kind of parent would let kids watch anything on that channel? Miley's video is tame compared to most videos. Why single Miley out if you let your kids watch the other garbage, like reality shows or Lady Gaga videos.

@218 How does your 12 year old girl know what a slut is? That is sick.

I hate that people keep saying Miley is only 17. She will be 18 next month, but in some states and most countries Miley would have aready been an "adult" years ago. Even in the US most females have already been pregnant or married by then. Miley is actually a great role model. In the US anyway, you can do almost anything at 18 including going off to war or voting. I hope people will STFU when Miley turns 18 next month! And even if the video is sexy, why is it OK to let kids watch all the twenty somethings doing the same thing? People much older than Miley are always up for Kids Choice or teen awards. Why are you letting your kids watch that!

"It's almost painful to watch this awkward manlike child lurch around trying to look sexy. Completely forgettable performance by an untalented horse toothed hillbilly ho. "

hahahahahahahha

it's mainly just disturbing because she's a little 17 year old girl. how can you not see that as disturbing.

I'm actually disgusted by the number of people who think this is part of "growing up." Did I miss something? Is dressing like a prostitute considered "growing up" these days? Is that what mature girls do now?

For those of you comparing Miley to Britney, you need to realize that Miley is no where near the success Britney had in her teens. Miley's popularity has dropped down tremendously as have her concert sales. And for those of you saying she's the next Britney...what, is she shaving her head and having a mental breakdown now?

You know what makes this worse. If you go on Twitter and some other places, some Miley fans are actually defending and enabling this even more. They think she is okay in doing this and basically says everyone else is wrong. All I can say is, her parents caused EVERY bit of this mess. Her being 15 and dating a grown man. Being allowed to live in a separate wing in her house. Being allowed to best friend 21 year olds. Being allowed to go off to Australia with NO parent to visit a much older boyfriend. Being allowed to dress like anything (BTW ...go google picts from her 17th bday party in NYC last year). Billy Ray and Tish should be investigated. And DFACS should consider removing little Noah Cyrus from that home.
