Hannah Montana sensation Miley Cyrus has been slowly shedding her tween-idol image in preparation to enter the very adult world of show business. Recent racy acts have many questioning if she’s morphing into a hybrid of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, both of whom also went from super sweet Disney child starlets to severely troubled Tinseltowners.
Miley Cyrus says that: It’s like Britney Spears decided to do a video inside a bird cage. Oh wait. That’s not Britney Spears. It’s TMZ’s naughty girl dujour Miley Cyrus performing her new song, Can’t be Tamed, inside, yea, a bird cage.
Yup. Like every starlet before her, Miley Cyrus is now proclaiming, “I’m not a kid. I’m a hot pop star and I’m gonna be bad!” Billy Ray, she’s fleeing the coop.
The footage shows the 17-year-old giving her 44-year-old openly gay friend/producer Adam Shankman a lap dance. But given all her successes and all her so-called scandals, perhaps the joke really is on us. Just this week video from a party for Miley Cyrus latest film The Last Song hit the Internet.
Miley Cyrus official new album cover for “Can’t Be Tamed” also bears a striking similarity to the cover of “Britney Spears Greatest Hits: My Prerogative.” (But hey, at least Brit was 22 as opposed to 17 at the time). Against a grey backdrop, Spears poses with a steely, sexy facial expression and exposes her taut midriff and legs in a little black bra-top, open jacket and short shorts, with her hair tousled dramatically around her face.
