‘Who Owns My Heart?’ Miley Cyrus asks, in the chorus of her latest song of the same name. Parents will soon be hoping that their children won’t holding Miley or her television alter ego Hannah Montana in their hearts for much longer.

In her music video for ‘Who Owns My Heart?’, the 17 year old is shown romping and rolling around in a bed in a shirt and her underwear, while later in the video, she is shown in an outfit that offers almost no coverage. The teen, who has been trying to shed free of her Hannah Montana role and her days with Disney, has had parents in a huff since her appearance on stage last year wearing suggestive clothing and swinging off of a pole.

The actress has stated that she is simply tired of being told who she should be and that she desires to be her own person. She turns 18 in November.

Miley Cyrus 'Who Owns My Heart' Video Blasted By Parents Television Council
'It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one,' group president says.

Miley Cyrus' new single, "Who Owns My Heart," may question who the pop star's latest boy toy is but the video certainly declares that the teen singer is embracing a sexier persona. However, some believe the 17-year-old singer's racy image is damaging to her legions of young fans.

In the clip, a scantily-clad Cyrus gets dolled up in her room and shows a lot of leg while grooving in the backseat of a car on her way to a rager at a mansion. The teen starlet then spends most of the video dancing in tiny shorts, a revealing halter, big hair and heels and partying until the wee hours.

Tim Winter, who serves as president of the Parents Television Council, told TMZ that the "Hannah Montana" star's sexed-up clip relays the wrong message to her teen following.

"It is unfortunate that she would participate in such a sexualized video like this one," 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."

This isn't the first time the Disney star has faced controversy in her attempts to break away from her squeaky-clean, teen idol status. Her pole-dancing move at the at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards grabbed headlines and her latest LP, Can't Be Tamed, features a much more vampy persona than her "Hannah Montana" alter ego.

"I'm a completely different person [than when I released 2008's Breakout]. I'm much more confident. You know, I've always been a confident person, but I was going through a lot then," Cyrus told MTV News in June. "There's so many people in your life telling you who you should and shouldn't be," Cyrus said. "And that's what Tamed [is] about. It's about being who you are to the fullest. And now I know who that is."

The group has also recently slammed the Britney/Brittany "Glee" episode.



ok, pleople who are saying she's trying to be a 'grownup' uh... no. She's being 17... 17 year olds are like that. Grownups don't dress like that.

People who say she's a slut, well... last I checked, you couldn't tell a slut by the clothes. And the feminist in me wants to know what century we're in, that calling a girl a slut is an appropriate thing to do.

And the 17 year old girl in me listens to the words, and hears a message that says: Don't get carried away by emotion.

To me, not a bad message.

The music tells me what to feel
I like you now
But is it real by the time we say goodnight
I don't know if this is right
And I feel you (you) coming through my veins.
Am I into you (you) or is it music to blaime?

Who owns my heart
Is it love or is it art
'Cause the way you got your body movin' got me confusin'
And I can't tell if it's the beat or sparks
Who owns my heart
Is it love or is it art
You know I wanna believe that we're a masterpiece
But sometimes it's hard to tell in the dark
Who owns my heart

Sounds to me she is talking about being into a recording artist like Elvis or what not? Don't most girls get giddy for stars like that?

she's attractive personable skilled and talented. I'm pretty sure her parents are watching her to make sure her career stays on track.

If she can be an Elvis, more power to her. Better Miley than Gaga. if we need 'role models' for our youth in our music, then Miley is at least promoting life, not death.

Since when is music where we get 'role models' from anyway? Isn't this merely the same argument from the 50's and the 60's and the 70's and the 80's and the...
