“Who Owns My Heart” ponders Miley Cyrus in her new single.
Certainly not Disney, judging by the latest writhe and grind music video from the teen who found fame, and millions of tween girl fans, as “Hannah Montana”.
Cyrus has spent most of the past year trying to distance herself from her Hannah Montana alter-ego, even though the TV series is still running on the Disney Channel.
But with still a month to go before she turns 18 in November, the raunchy video for “Who Owns My Heart” has sparked another round of raised eyebrows and hand-wringing about her sexed-up new image.
“Who Owns My Heart” finds Cyrus lying on a bed in a seedy room, making come-to-bed eyes at the camera, trying on skimpy outfits for a party, flashing a leg in a limo and grinding with party-goers (male and female) on the dance floor. It follows the release in June of the raunchy “I Can’t Be Tamed” pop video from her new album which Cyrus said at the time was all about girls empowering themselves.
She’s been talking for months about carving out an edgier image after years of the pink and sparkly world she inhabited as “Hannah Montana”, but even so the new Miley Cyrus music video must have come came as a bit of a shock — at least to her millions of Disney Channel fans around the world.

With its black leather figure hugging bodices, sexy dance moves, and in your face lyrics, “Can’t Be Tamed” sees Cyrus going down the road trod by Britney Spears after her first couple of albums, and more recently by glam sensation Lady GaGa.
Musical TV comedy “Glee” might be centered on a group of high school misfits, but devious cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester is likely to be stealing the show for the next couple of weeks with her “Vogue” mini video homage to Madonna.
Sylvester, played by actress Jane Lynch, stars in the three-minute video in the highly-anticipated April 20 episode devoted to cover versions of Madonna hits. But fans will get a sneak preview on Tuesday night when “Glee” returns to U.S. TV screens after a four month absence.
