Miley Cyrus "Can't Be Tamed" Video: The Transformation is Complete

by at . Comments

She's worn hooker boots and danced on a stripper poll, all while starring as Hannah Montana and acting like an innocent Disney creation.

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.

Check it out and then weigh in with your thoughts:

What's our take?

While THG has often been critical of Miley for sending a bad message to her young fan base, we're actually fine with this transformation. We simply take issue with artists that act provocatively one moment, and then play naive the next moment. Don't be a hypocrite.

In this case, Cyrus is clearly make a decision to reach a different audience. More power to her. Now parents know what sort of image she's sending out and can judge whether her music and movies are appropriate for their children accordingly.

What do YOU think? Miley's video is...

@Cool: if you gave a 17-year old $50, he or she might also go buy marijuana. What does that have to do with Miley or this video? Isn't it the responsibility of someone in her position to be a role model and show how one SHOULD act, not how one typically acts?
Think what you want of the video, but to argue that any 17-year old would act this way if he/she magically had a music video is utterly asinine and besides the point.

It's just ok. Kind of a stupid video, really with all the bird cages...but whatever. It just doesn't seem all that authentic to me. She doesn't actually dance and the only part that seemed convincing was when she was almost kissing people, it looked like that might've turned her on. LOL At any rate, she still sounds like a little baby, no matter what the words are. There is nothing sexy about her...it just comes across as nasty regardless of her age.

I agree with cool. My sister wasn't even in high school yet and her and all her friends wanted to wear less than that. I'm not saying it's right that our youth wants to wear less but as long as parents are allowing their children to be apart of this culture, artist such as Miley will continue to make videos like this.
