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."

The video and song to me is pretty disturbing. They should just use this video to capture all the pedos out there. less than half way in and had to close out of it. Just gross.

Oh quit the hating already. It will make YOU ugly.

I find nothing wrong with allowing this young lady to grow up and do more mature videos, songs, concerts, etc. So what! Y'all will keep complaining she dumped her fan base when she turns 30 I am sure.

As for some of you parents out there, trust that your 17 year old is acting the same way behind your back. You just don't know it. At least Ms. Cyrus is doing it in front of everyone and I am sure she could care less about your problem with it.

I think she looks beautiful, did a great job and hey, welcome to adulthood Ms. Cyrus. Keep wowing everyone!

I've had to tell my seven year old that Miley wants to be a grown up and she's not really for little girls any more. I think she's going to lose most of her fan base. I'm thinking they will not be showing this video on the Disney Channel.

wtf    

What a bunch of prudes they complained about Britney being on glee. Miley isn't turning her back on anyone she's simply growing up who would want to be Hannah Montana forever. My god this girl can't do anything.

I think her "tween" fans have grown up also, don't think to many 16-18 year old girls will be upset about this. Same thing happened with Brittany and she is still around. Just a little girl becoming an adult.

You are all forgetting a looming fact here: Miley is a MINOR CHILD. Her parent's can get into sizable trouble allowing this kind of thing. CPS should pay old Billy Ray a nice visit and ask him why he's showing off his minor child in this manner....

wtf    

Mileys fanbase grew up with her we aren't 5 year olds anymore. Its the prude parents that worry to much about Miley and don't worry enough about their own daughters who are most likely sleeping with 10 guys over the weekends.

Miley has no parental supervision. It appears that money is the
end all in the family. If Miley is bringing in the bucks noone
is going to tell her NO or give her good solid advice. It's
whatever this girl wants to do! Doesn't she even have a
boy friend that now lives with her? She is seventeen years old.
I find Miley's father to be disgusting. He is an old has been
capitalizing on his daughters success and at the same time
using her for his own success. It's no wonder so many
hollywood kids are so screwed up. Look at their parents.

Come on!!
She is just going through a phase.
I personally think she is late at 17.
This is perfectly normal teenage behavior give the girl a break.
She is just trying to figure out who she is and discovering her sexuality.

Because she is a girl she gets a lot op BS but look at the boys like Jesse McCartney he did the same thing I don't hear anybody about that.

You all have to understand. This girl can't sing. Not a drop. When she was 12-15 she could get away with not being able to sing because she had a audience that didn't know music. 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.

I love the video. And I love what Cyrus is doing with it as a personal statement. There is a minority of holier-than-thou people in this country today who have set themselves up as the moral cops over the rest of us. Call them the American Taliban. You know who they are. And in the last 3 years, the American Taliban has chosen Miley Cyrus as one of their primary targets, but their real target is all of us, the great majority, who don't think it's wrong to dance, sing, dress up or dress down and just have some fun. We don't get offended at a 17-year-old girl wearing daisy dukes or a see-through top ('oh my gosh, I can see her bra,' the American Taliban shouts, like they've never seen a bra before!) and we don't get our knickers in a twist over a little 'dirty dancing'. Cyrus has been tormented by these Talibanesque fuddy duddies over wearing a sheet in photo shoot, over leaked photos of her in her underwear hacked from a personal account, over a lap dance with a 44-year-old gay movie producer, over dancing—but not drinking—in an over-21 dance club and much more. In this video, she prances around in her underwear, lap dances with a male dancer and in general rubs her burgeoning young-adult sexuality in the faces of the American Taliban. In the context of Cyrus' recent life, this video constitutes her own mini-version of the film "Footloose." It's video about liberation from the minority who would turn us back to the days of New England Puritanism. Viewed in comparison to many other dance videos by older female recording artists it might seem run of the mill, but put in context of what Cyrus has been through with the American Taliban over the last few years, its a political statement of high order. Better yet, it’s a political statement you can dance and sing to.

wtf.. is it just me or are these comments a little weird today.

I have a feeling the ppl defending this video are either old pervs or teen girls that don't understand the repercussions yet of acting in that manor.

A female growing up doesn't always have to be portrayed by exploitive actions seen in this video. I was really hoping she wasn't going to be like everyone else and move towards a tempting wild lifestyle.
