Miley_290 Miley Cyrus has stirred up controversy once again with behavior usually reserved for adults.

The 16-year-old performed a pole dance while singing "Party in the USA" at the Teen Choice Awards, which were telecast Monday night.

Not only did she gyrate and drop low on the makeshift stripper pole, which was perched atop an ice cream cart, but her attire — short shorts and an exposed bra — definitely gave the viewers a show. She did not, however, take off any clothes or troll the audience for tips.

Check out Miley's dance and other best and worst moments from the Teen Choice Awards.

This isn't the first time that Cyrus has been criticized for actions that may not be appropriate for her impressionable young fans. Previously, racy photos of her with an exposed bra were leaked on the Internet, and another time she posed for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in nothing but a sheet.
