Miley Cyrus Takes Lessons from Britney and Boy George
It seems like Miley Cyrus is following in Britney Spears’ foot steps. Her new video, “Can’t Be Tamed”, reminds me of Britney’s video “You Drive Me Crazy” mixed with “Circus” or any of her other risqué videos. I feel that maybe both her and Britney should do a video together some day. While the height of Britney’s career came around the time when she turned 18, do you think it’ll be the same for Miley, who turns 18 on November 23rd? I promised myself I’d keep my comments about the way Miley looks in this video locked away until she was legal, because I fear I’d be locked away. I will say this, the song is interesting itself and she definitely knows how to express herself.

The video starts off with a crowd around a covered cage in what seems to be a museum. The MC for the event announces “the most rarest bird of all, Adis Cyrus”, and the cover is removed revealing Miley Cyrus with wings and a sexy leather outfit(Disclaimer: I’m only saying the outfit is sexy, not the person wearing it.)
Now, Miley goes on to talk about how she’s a bad-ass and does whatever it is that she wants. She then starts donning feathers in her hair at one point. Which bares resemblance to another Pop Icon by the name of Boy George. If you don’t know who he is, consider yourself lucky, although, some of his songs aren’t that bad.
See what I mean? I’m sure if you watch the video you can see how “Cant Be Tamed” is much like many other “sexy” music videos across the industry. I will admit this. She’s doing it well. She’s got the recipe to success and I wish her the best. I just won’t be following close by cheering her on like a groupie that’s all.
