    I don’t think it’s classy (haha, maybe it’s klassy instead) but isn’t there always some teen star who thinks she is way older than she really is and pushes the limits of what is publicly acceptable. I’m of the mind that it’s not to my taste at all, but whatever floats your boat!

    I think Miley is a bit disrespectful of what made her the star she is. She has made comments about “Party in the USA” not being her real style but that is the type of song that makes her famous. She always seems to want to come off older, edgier, more “deep”, etc then her Disney image and I think that while it is fine she grows up that she should respect what made her the rising star she is.

    I know everyone is going to say its too sexy, but honestly when I was 18 (She’s 18 now right?) that is exactly how I acted/dressed. I wore the shortest skirts, tightest jeans, hoochy-est makeup, everything. I was 18 and young and thought I looked HOT. I look at some of those clothes now that I am 24 and think “OhmygodwhatwasIthinking????” I used to wear different clothes over my going-out clothes so my mom wouldn’t catch me!! I think it is a phase ever girl her age goes through, and I don’t think it is “inappropriate”– just normal. She will come out of it in time.

    Apparently she doesn’t turn 18 until November. When you compare her to Britney there are some interesting dynamics and arguments and I’m sure we could all go on forever but to me it’s really really simple. The bigger problem is parents themselves not being aware of what their kids are watching. Parents need to make the decision on what’s age appropriate or not, it’s really as simple as that. Do I think Miley Cyrus is inappropriate for an 18 year old or even a 15 year old probably not but a 10 or 6 year old definitely. I was shocked when I saw some pics of her little sister, do I think the Cyrus’s should be ashamed for how they let their 9 year old daughter dress and behave you bet you @#$ I do but again those are parents choices not mine they get to deal with the consequences just like every other parent out there. Disney is in the business of making money not caring don’t let the feel good movies and princesses fool you, they’re just like everyone else they just wrap it up a little better. Sure do they have some programing that has quality to it yeah probably but is Hannah Montana one of them, from what I’ve seen no. I personally think that Miley actually has some talent can while I don’t like her music she can actually sing and that’s something to be said because a lot of the young performers these days depend so much on auto tune and pre-recorded tracks so good for her on that end f things at least she’s got that going for her.

    I don’t know, have you seen 17 girls at the mall lately? I am only 23 and I feel like there is HUGE difference between the way they dress and the way 17 year old girls dressed 6 years ago.

    I don’t actually think this girl has enough talent to warrant her stardom, but I don’t think she or that video are “too sexy” for her age.  She’s legally an adult in a few months and I along with millions of other girls her age and younger have explored our sexuality and dressed in a risqué manner.  It’s not the sexiness that will ruin her a la Britney, if anything does, it’s the immense stardom so quickly and at such a young age.  I don’t blame her for wanting to break out of the Disney box, and she has a right to do that, because she’s practically an adult.  Just because she played an innocent little girl to start her career doesn’t mean she always has to be one or pander to the audience that watched her innocent little girl character. Let her grow as she wishes, I think.  It’s a shame she feels she has to overturn her previous image so violently, but I think her position is understandable at least; she wants to be viewed as an attractive young woman and not a little girl anymore.  There’s always going to be some young star “ruining” the children when really good parenting is what makes or breaks a kid, and I wish people would own up to that instead of blaming every celebrity who comes along and wears a skintight dress.  I took a course on Plato last year and laughed out loud when I read a passage in a dialogue in which an interlocutor complained of a teen boy who drove his father’s chariot without permission, and how teens in his day were so disrespectful and misbehaved so much more than teens in his age.  People have been saying that teens are worse than ever before since the dawn of time, I bet.  The truth is that teenagers do crazy stuff, always.  Period.  And yet civilization has marched on.

    Meh.

    I am more worried about her nine year old sister’s questionable Halloween costume choices.

    I think that she pushes it, but it’s not as weird now that she is 17. Taylor Lautner, also 17, posed all dripping wet t-shirt in the water for Rolling Stone, and no one complained about him being underage and objectified. I do think perhaps some of the reaction is carried over because she started pushing this image too early trying to break from Disney. I find her sexy style generally tacky (I can say it in this context, right?), but I know I was not at the pinnacle of fashion at that age, either. Granted, I was way more mature and demure, but hopefully, she’ll outgrow this.

    ^The nine year old’s Halloween outfit is horrifying, but big sister Miley is just a glamorous role model.  I’m sure she’s not dressing her sister daily and she doesn’t have control over what she leaves the house wearing.  Her parents should be doing that, and they’re not, they’re failing as parents and we can’t blame that on big sis.

    wow. I looked at the sister’s pics. Jeesh. The lady bug costume would be okay with red or black flats instead of boots. Looks like a dance costume. The other one is just too weird for a kid. But on to Miley, I personally don’t like it at all. But I tend to not like overly sex charged entertainment.

    She’s following in the footsteps of many a great pop star. Skanky sells. So does vocoder. Way to go, Miley. Makin’ big changes in the world.

    Cite @ “The video isn’t about being sexy or about who can wear less clothes. It’s about explaining the song and living the lyrics. I don’t want to be in a cage. I want to be free and do what I love.”

    I doubt she’ll outgrow this, if she wants to keep selling records. It’s not like she has total control over creative direction anyway. And not to sound like an old fart, but her music and videos will perpetuate the oversexualization of kids. They watch her and emulate her, same as all the other pop stars. She’s just like all the others. Big whoop.

    I bet she will calm down some, she doesn’t seem like a natural-born sex siren and dirty gets old eventualy (look at people like Drew Barrymoore).  She’s just in that “omg I can make the boys pant, I can’t get enough of it” stage that a lot of teen girls go through, I think.  Once she breaks out of the Disney image and gets used to her own sexuality, she might just level out to something less outrageous.

    I am also more worried about her sister, but for the most part I think it’s too sexy. She’s not even legal yet and they are trying to sell sex with her (in my opinion). Would I feel the same if she were 18? No. I wouldn’t. Because then she’s at the legal age of consent and can literally do whatever she wants.

    I agree with ILikePink, 17 year old girls these days are too mature for their age. It’s the generation, I guess. I think most people are used to thinking of Miley as cutesy little Hannah Montana, but the public has to realize that she’s not Hannah Montana in real life. She’s just a teenaged girl who’s growing up and experimenting, albeit inappropriately sometimes. Do I think she’s trying too hard to be mature and sexy? Definitely. But what 17 year old doesn’t try too hard to be mature and sexy? And good point Amaryllis about Taylor Lautner being 17 and exploiting his body–how come nobody complains about him? 🙂

    I’m normally in the “they’re too young for that sh*t!” camp but I didn’t mind this one.  (And I thought her wings were pretty sweet.  🙂  Besides, she’s what?  17 now?  Yeah, that’s young but how many of you were doing naughty things with boys at that age?  I think she’s upholding her image a lot better than most girls have done in similar situations.  And as for “She always seems to want to come off older, edgier, more “deep”, etc” that’s very true, but I think that’s also true of almost every other teenager out there!
