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."

It isn't that I oppose being provocative in a music video but why are these girls so quick to "tart" themselves as if that's a direct line to success? I have so much more respect for female artists that make their music the highlight and not the fact that they're writhing around on a bed with a blindfold on. If you're beautiful and sexy then you are, you don't need to slut yourself up and show the world how mature you are and how far you've come from being an adolescent. At 17, it's unnecessary and honestly, predictable.

This video is like a minor with fake id trying to get into a bar/club. Shame on her parents and the music industry for letting minors depict themselves as adults in adult situations as it sends the wrong message to minors.

Seriously people? It's 'normal' to show yourself in underwear at the age of 17 on TV? THATS growing up? Don't think so... She should have eased out of her disney image like Hilary duff did. She went from slut to whore in a matter of seconds. She did this nasty crap since the age of 15/16, so the fact that she's 'almost' 18 doesn't justify her behavior because she's ALWAYS been slutty. Only retards would think that stripping down to your underwear and singing about sex is a part of growing up. Furthermore she isn't just any 'poor poor teenage girl going through puberty', she's a role model to lots of little kids and she herself is STILL 17 and underage. Not to mention normal 17 year olds might dress skimpy, sneak out, have a fun night and come home, but she's doing this on tv showing the whole world what a slut she is and allowing men to perv on her. She can't even drink legally but she can get naked and hump things? I hope someone gives this girl a kick under the ass she needs. Despite what everyone might think, acting slutty and dressing like a whore ISN'T part of growing up. The only reason miley even acts this slutty is because she can't gain attention otherwise, she has no talent i think that is very obvious.

If miley wants to show the world her 'talent' (ha-ha) and that she is an adult now then maybe she should stop acting like a horny slut and start acting like an adult?

This is not an epic video at all. The canned music and doctored voice-over is nothing new. There's really nothing to get excited over. Us adults now know the real Miley and will keep our kids away from her so I guess her fan base is the slutty girls and boys who go to some mysterious school where everyone is almost naked and the pedophiles. You guys need to post the name of that school so her new fans can hang out with you. Bring your cameras! Finally, the word "whore" is back in use!

So, Miley built her life on the backs of young girls and now is trying to get on her back for young men(a lot of perverted older ones too). She is strictly the product of her mad father, Billy Ray..She is no longer Miley.. She is Frankenwhore...

I see the pedophiles are on TMZ today. Anyone who thinks it's ok for a young girl to dance like that in a video is sick. Apparently you don't have children and if you do I'm scared. If teens at your nearby high school did this it would be pretty sick.This is what girls do when their parents don't care and they have no talent. Why couldn't she grow up like Hilary Duff? She stayed classy through everything. Miley is the next Lindsey, Paris, Brittany,etc.. Disgusting!

OMG you are so sad :((or is it jealousy ?
If a girl 17!! dances like that it doesn't make her a whore.
Were you born as an adult?
Never went out dancing with your friends?
Go to any local club and take a look all the young boys and girls dance like that. Times change.
As long as you teach them morals and values there is absolutely no problem.
At 17 they have a mind of their own and capable to use it.

Well I guess we are more open minded here in The Netherlands and we have the lowest teen pregnancy rates in the world. So guess we are doing something right here huh...

Ow and she is not blindfolded it's a sleeping mask..

Anybody who thinks there is anything "natural" about this behavior at her age is nuts. Videos like this, granding lap dance for a 40-year-old man and on and on is okay? Where are your brain cells? Yes, there are girls who carry on like this but there were whores in every generation - it's not the norm by any means. There is one hell of a difference between growing up and out of a childhood image and turning into something no better than a 5-cent whore on 2-for-1 day. Case in point - Taylor Swift, Dakota Fanning, the Olsen twins, etc. If you put men into the equation, look at Michae J. Fox - from a teen star to an advocate for Parkinson's disease. Miley doesn't have parents - she has a madam and a pimp.

She is actually a great singer. Her vocals are amazing and she looks comfortable in different genres, that said this video makes me cringe.
It's a shame in this age that someone can not be famous and climb up the ranks just on singing ability alone. The nastier and skankier they get in their videos, the more popular they get.

I have two daughters and I let them watch Miley on tv and they really, truly enjoy her. They also enjoy her music, but a parent has to draw the line some where. This video is appropriate for adults but not for children, which is the majority of her fan base.
I know she is trying out her wings and trying to get a more mature audience but lets face it, she is going about it the wrong way.
I'm hoping in her next videos we'll see at least a little morality and a little less skin - not to mention the bumping and grinding and rubbing - then maybe she can get by on her ability to belt out a tune?

I do not think Miley is going to be lasting much longer as a singer. The fact is her fans are kids and preteens and with her doing stuff like this parents are no longer going to allow there kids to listen to her or watch her. One of the hardest things for an artist who starts out as a teen singer is transitioning into an adult singer and for alot of people they do not make it and I think Miley is going to be one of those singers whom do not make it.

One thing that really does not help her is she looks more like she is 14 so it is a bit disturbing to watch her lay around in underwear because of the way she looks.

.......The American standard for (whore-ism) has now been set so low, or is that been set so high, anyway, in order to qualify as being a whore these days, a female would have had to have slept with 93 humans, two chimps, a couple of Clydesdale horses, and at least one German Shepherd, all within the course of a three day period, to qualify as a whore nowadays.

And judging from the way things are headed for the young America female, even sex-tapes with animals will one day be considered within the parameters of healthy sexual behavior......Artofwar
