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."

Umm, where's the sexual content? She's in bed, clothed, alone. She's getting ready to go out, she wears club clothes. I don't get where this is sexually charged. No more than today's tweens walking around in strappy tank tops with their bras showing and shorts so short they can't bend over without exposing themselves. Lay off the judgement of this poor girl already. Your teens probably aren't any better.

For a long time now I’ve wanted to write something in support of Miley Cyrus. I don’t know if it is “cool” to bash celebrities today but the things some people are saying about this girl make me sick. Nice to know that so many of you can hide behind the Internet. I am aware that many prominent entertainers are coming out to support Miley. That’s awesome! I hope she knows there are a lot of people that stand behind her. Consider me one of them. In the million-to-one chance that she reads this: Miley, YOU ROCK!

My girlfriend and I are fans of Miley and really like her new image and music. When I got home from work the other day I saw the headlines and thought “What’d Miley do NOW?” After all, in the past year or two she has been accused of posing for “topless photos,” “making a sex tape,” and “pole dancing” on an awards show. Good grief! From reading the responses to her latest video, one would think Miley was responsible for the Recession, the War in Afghanistan, Global Warming, and the BP Oil Disaster!

I think Miley’s new CD and videos are actually pretty mild compared to what Madonna, Britney, Christina, Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, and many others have gotten away with. It seems there is a lot of anger over her leaving “Hannah Montana” and striking out on her own. I can understand parents being concerned with the change--it happened very rapidly and is a huge jump for Miley careerwise. She has taken a big risk in my opinion and if I had been able to give her some advice, I would have told her to take it more slowly. However, all of the name calling, sexual innuendos, and hate directed at Miley are completely uncalled for.

Particularly offensive are the malicious and often vulgar comments from people who identify themselves as “good parents.” You should be ashamed of yourselves. How dare you criticize anyone while you hide behind the anonymity of the Internet and personally attack their character! What has Miley ever done to you to deserve such contempt? Frankly, it is disgusting and tells me that there is something wrong with the person that posts such crap--to use a cliché: get a life! Better still, get professional help. Now.

As for Miley, she is doing just fine without you. She has millions of adoring fans and is obviously quite successful both personally and professionally. I have always suspected that there might just a hint of jealousy behind the attacks--Miley has a lot going for her: she is gorgeous--she’s no longer just the “cute kid” from Disney--she has transformed into a very beautiful young woman. She’s wealthy. She is popular--although she is risking some of that to venture in this new direction. She has done a lot of charity work. She is also very bright--if you really think she’s not, you just don’t want to admit it or you haven’t been paying attention. Oh yeah, and she’s only 17!!!

So, my advice for any “haters” out there is--just stop it. If you really don’t like what she is doing don’t watch her videos or listen to her music. The rest of us will enjoy her music and watching her grow as a person and performer. Don’t even try to refute any of this because you know everything I said is true. Leave Miley Alone!

Miley can grow up, do her thing, whatever. I don't "hate" her. I just won't allow my child to watch her now AND I have cancelled the Hannah Montana show. Best to get her out of sight - out of mind. I am responsible for my child until she is 18 and I am going to do my level best to keep her "undersexed" until then. And to the person who said that "your 17 year old is doing the same thing behind your back" - not necessarily true. I know plenty of 17 year old girls who are still wholesome and have managed to rise above the filth of the Y Generation. It is possible that teenage people still have character and proudly hold their heads up to the people who denigrate them for being simply good.

your are a bunch of pathetic bitches. first off, she still has as many fans as shes had before. maybe even more.

second, this music video wasn't even sexy to the extreme. she wasn't writhing in the bed. yes she was wearing panties but it isn't like she was wearing a thong and a training bra. the only other thing that she was wearing was that beautiful gold top.

third, this video was awesome. **** the young people. if the parents are too ****ed up to realize that this woman is doing what she likes then they are just a bunch of **** ups anyways.

fourth, get off her case. you act like she's slutting it up. yeah, ok. grow up. just because you are adults doesnt mean that you act like it. yall need a reality check if you think this is too sexy. what about christina aguilera's vids or britney spears. it was sexy and they had on more clothes than her!!!! **** yall tmz **** ups

My 11 year old comes downstairs the other night looking like a ho but thinking she is beautiful because she looks like Miley. Wrong. She looks like a ho. So now I have to explain why "sexy" is not a term that applied to an 11 year old or a 17 year old for that matter, unless you are a pedophile with evil on your mind. Her response is that "if it's on TV, then it can't be bad." From the mouths of babes, eh?

If Miley wants to grow up, that's OK with me. If her parents can't control themselves to allow this child to have some decorum and class, then they should get out of the way. Miley will reach 18 soon and be in charge of her own destiny, if the influences and lack of leadership in her life play a part, then Lindsay Lohan will have a room mate.

In the meantime, while Miley and her people, and her peoples people struggle to get from one marketing and merchandising program to another, she might do well to have a better understanding of the responsibilities she has to her fan base; not all those little girls are as ready to grow up as she (presumably) is. If she doesn't have the talent anymore to make it as an artist, then she should address THAT problem, not re-wrap it in Hollywood.

i'm an 18 year old girl and i certainly don't do things like this. does that make me a prude? i also never when through a phase like this. i think its sad that things like these have become the norm. being grown up has nothing to do with dressing skimply and rollling around on a bed, its about the decisions you make. Shouldn't young girls be aspiring to make a difference in the world? not trying to be sexy. i'm npot a fan of miley but my 3 year old cousin is. i hope she will never see this side of hannah montana.

I honestly don't like her at all. Not because of her singing or her being in Disney, but because
she does all if this **** and little five year-old girls
are looking up to her. I can imagine it now, in 10 years every girl around the world will be a slut!
