But Miley Cyrus has officially moved on to the next stage of her career. Just call her Britney Spears 2.0 now.
The much-hyped music video for Miley's "Can't Be Tamed" has been released online, and we understand why sources warned us awhile ago that it would "blow our minds."
As seen below, Cyrus dons a $25,000 corset. She's also surrounded by scantily-clad cage dancers, while dressed like a peacock and sitting in a giant nest. Seriously.
Said Miley about the racy video: "The video isn’t about being sexy or about who can wear less clothes. It’s about explaining the song and living the lyrics."
That's fine, except the lyrics include: Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention/Like I’m under inspection/ I always get the 10s/‘Cause I’m built like that. So don't try to pretend the video isn't about sex, Miles.
