Miley Cyrus' new music video blasted by Parents Television Council
The president of the Parents Television Council has condemned the sexualized nature of Miley Cyrus’ latest music video for single “Who Owns My Heart,” according to a report by MTV. In the sultry video, Miley wakes up blindfolded in bed before she heads out to a dance club. “It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one,” the president of the organization, Tim Winter, said. “It sends messages to her fanbase 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 fanbase so rapidly.”
Cyrus’ representatives have not returned emails seeking comment.
The Parents Television Council regularly objects to television content it feels may damage children. Recently, the organization went after CBS’ $#*! My Dad Says, Adam Lambert’s performance at last year’s American Music Awards, and Gossip Girl‘s threesome storyline.
