When Miley Cyrus talked about casting aside her naughty girl image and headed back to her sweet country roots for her future musical endeavors, we all got a little nervous. Largely unwarranted. A twenty-something young woman who's made her bones and other bones on her petite but showoff body isn't going to start donning oversized frocks and petticoats for bible belt show hour. It's not that simple. Plus, that would've broken our hearts.
Miley shows up showing off in her new song, Malibu. Make of the music what you will. But do not ignore the fact that the toned minx, while not quite Wrecking Ball prurient, is still working the visual angles on her sextastic female form. It's a relief. Love her or leave her, Miley's responsible for raising the skin-revealing bar for the rest of the industry for the past several years. She's pushed and prodded all the others into exhibitionist shows on stage. That's our Miley. Malibu, go figure. Enjoy.
