The Disney star wants to follow in the footsteps of sexy stars like Blake Lively.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is only 17-years-old, but she’s acting more like a rebellious 22-year-old! “She doesn’t want to be seen as a young teen anymore,” a source tells BettyConfidential. “She wants to break out and become a sex symbol, just like her new pal, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively. She idolizes her. In her mind, she’s done being Hannah Montana. She wants to be a sexy pop star.”

“Ever since Miley and Blake met in 2008 at the Teen Choice Awards in Hollywood, Miley has been so taken with Blake that she decided she wanted to edge up her act a little. Blake is a star of a hit show, she’s beautiful, is a fashion risk-taker and her long sexy legs and long blond locks have made her one of the sexiest women in television. Miley already has the long legs and the hit TV show, now she’s styling her hair like Blake! They actually look like they could be related.”

On Miley’s recent tour, you couldn’t see any signs of Disney’s goofy high-school student. She was dressed in leather mini skirts, belting out tunes with special effects and shocking visuals, astounding her 9-year-old fans and their moms in the audience. “Miley is hoping to change her fan base to those in their late teens,” the insider says. She’s already turning heads on the red carpet with plunging necklines and sexy dresses.

  1. This isn’t Peter Pan. Everyone grows up. As Miley grows up, her musical tastes and fashion sense and fan base is going to change. Disney can’t expect their child stars to stay child-like, even at 17 and 18. That’s a little wierd. I mean, what did they think would happen when she was 21? 30? They need to move on to molding their next child idol and let Miley move on without worrying over her every single move.

  2. Okay, I think Miley deserves a break. I'm not a celebrity, but when I was 14 I was still playing with my stuffed animals…when I was 17, I was into music, make-up and making out with boys! She's growing up…get over it!!

  3. Miley has the face of a 14-year-old. She can’t carry off a sexy look until the baby fat comes off. Besides, isn’t EVERYONE being as sexy as possible? What is this, Invasion of the Sex Droids? Why be the same as everyone else? And why’s a woman several years older taking such an interest?

  4. Omigood, stop freaggin criticizing this teen. Im about Mileys age, and trust me, I dont wear knee-length skirts anymore. God, just because shes a star, she cant stop herself from wanting to grow up, from taking out the makeup and the partys, and putting away the disney and Winnie the pooh!Everyone needs to grow up SOME day!

  5. Give the sweet thing time. I have raised two grandchildren, and we went through some rough spots. They turned out beautifully. No fough edges. Perfect. Slow down and let nature take its course. Double dog dare you!

  6. YAH i AGREE WITH CHEER321 LMF AND SHELL- SHELL just let the girl be shes awsome and she’s growing up the media cant expect her to stay 14 forever!!!!!! lay off

  7. I used 2 be a fan of miley but when i saw her pole dance on the teen choice awards i just thought,”wow!? Her dad and mom are letting here do that?! Why?” i just think we should give her some time though. Hopefully she’ll change. im 13 and id never follow here footsteps.

  8. She is gorgeous and has tremendous potential. Lets just hope she doesn’t crash and burn like some others have. For those saying she looks or acts too sexy for her age, please grow up.

  9. well i used to enjoy wacthing the Hannah Montana show all the time…and now when i look at her… i see a total different person…im so disapointed in her because my little neace asked me why did she changed..she also wishes to have the old miley:(

  10. For those who argue, "Well, she's growing up!" seem to be just as blind-sided as the ones who are going rampant on her image. If you're going to state on significance, don't shimmy the second part of that argument.

    It has little to do with Miley "growing up." It doesn't even have to do with her finally breaking out, it has to do with the method, the timing and HOW she broke out.

    One – she's not eighteen. Two, regardless of what us crazy teens want [I'm 18 myself], unfortunately it's never been a good enough excuse to throw responsibility – and, public face – out of the window. I personally wish there was freedom without consequence myself, but in a world where there's not, tact and acknowledgment to your audience isn't the worst of actions to take. Her breaking out isn't the problem; it's the method that was. On another unfortunate side, it's the audience that is the foot-hold of an icon such as Miley, and she, I regret to say, took a bit of a piss on them without meaning to; all teens are reckless and naive and hardly know a thing about tact when it comes down to responsibility, however.

    If she had built up into this image instead of shell-shocking the entire school of fish out of nowhere, the reaction wouldn't have been this fiery, because there were already huge implications established to expect it. But her quick turn for sex-sells was like a stripper routine. When I say stripper routine, I'm using this as a metaphor – think of her Disney image as her clothes. Instead of slowly unbuttoning her blouse (shedding out of her Disney image), she stripped the clothes off all at once, threw them into the crowd for them to either grab or throw on the floor, and flaunted that new lingerie (the new image). When a sudden action is taken, people just as suddenly react.

    Miley Cyrus was in the same league as BARNEY. In a short amount of time, she went from Barney to Britney Speares. Yes, she's growing up – of course – but over half of her fame in audience comes from ten year olds who were watching her a year or less ago. Due to the short amount of time between her transition, the kids who were watching her still are, and the little girls who looked up to her are getting their eyes and ears covered by the mothers who saw her as the perfect role model. Their naiveness is just as bad as Miley's, but you can't blame them for feeling a bit of distrust here. Naturally, that factor only is going to cause an uproar between the public and her. She's not a little teenager no one cares about, she's not the average person walking down the streets in a booty-shorts – she's an icon, idol, and a celebrity, and with that, comes responsibility, and with responsibility, comes consequence. People fool themselves into believing a celebrity has leeway to be selfish with their endeavors when that same icon decides to thrust themselves into one direction and not expect their crowd to follow, whether negatively or positively.

    Miley is not a victim and never was, so I'm not on the side of defending or victimizing her.

  13. Even if she is going to be 18 it doesn't matter most people that were 18 never did things she did look at the point she is still a minor she shouldn't be like this. Most of the things she did is illegal drinking a beer at 17 in a club she shouldn't even be in a club list examples of kids that do this at the age of 17.

  14. People as an individual should realize their responsibilities to their societies, cultures, nations and countries. And work for its betterment to the extent as they are willing to do so. They should participate voluntarily in the social welfare activities.
