Miley Cyrus Photo Scandal: 'Slutty' vs. 'Sexy'

miley-cyrus-getty-dish.jpgMiley Cyrus may be 17 years old -- older than Britney Spears was when she released "...Baby One More Time" -- but we still can't help but think of her as an 11-year-old on the Disney Channel in a goofy blonde wig. It's no wonder that her new sexed-up image for "Can't Be Tamed" is stirring up a little bit of controversy.

In 2008, Cyrus was criticized for baring her back on the cover of Vanity Fair. Now, she's wearing cleavage-baring corsets and grinding with dancers in videos, pretending to make out with girls on stage, and she was even busted dirty-dancing with her "The Last Song" director Adam Shankman. Her back should have been the least of anyone's worries.

On May 14, Cyrus wrapped filming on the final season of " Hannah Montana." The season will air starting on July 11.

Perhaps Miley should've waited until after her Disney reign was over before busting out songs with lyrics like "I go through guys like money flying out their hands."

Miley tells the AP that she doesn't intend to push the envelope too far. "I'm not trying to be slutty," she says. "I'm not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys." Miley is still dating her "The Last Song" co-star, 20-year-old Liam Hemsworth.
