Miley Cyrus Gone Wild on MySpace?

More suggestive shots of the Hannah Montana star surface online.

Hannah Montana's at it again! In January, Miley Cyrus raised eyebrows when racy photos of her leaked on the Internet. Not Vanessa-of-High-School-Musical wild, but definitely too sexy or suggestive for some parents' comfort.

Now AOL reports more racy pics of 15-year-old teen Miley have surfaced--this time of her flashing her bra, lying in a guy's lap, and baring her midriff. The seductive shots were supposedly hacked from her private MySpace page.

How can you prevent your own teen from following in Miley's footsteps? Mom•Logic spoke with family counselor Rosanne Tobey about how to talk to your kids about the dangers of posting questionable photos on the 'net.

By the time your private business has gone public, you can't take it away.
"I think this is a perfect example parents can use to illustrate why NOT to post pics you don't want the entire world to see," Rosanne says. "Even though you think the pics will never get out because 'I'm just sending it to my friend' or 'only the people in my network can see it,' you're just assuming they won't forward it or post it elsewhere. All it takes is one click of a button. And once it's out there, it's essentially impossible to get it back."

Kids must understand the permanence of the actions they take. "Teens tend to be so savvy, yet they sometimes have a hard time realizing the reach that the Web might have," Rosanne says. "If a racy pic is up somewhere with your name attached, and a future employer Googles you and finds it, it can really come back to haunt you."

Even if you trust your teen, they can still make bad decisions. "Talk to your kids about this, even if you think they'd never do something like this in a million years," says Rosanne. "It's not so much that your teen's not trustworthy--this is just typical behavior of their age."

In light of these new pics, is Miley really kid-friendly anymore?

Kids will be kids, BUT I do think (and hope) that Miley and her dad understand that she can’t do alot of the bumbleheaded things teens her age do because she’s under a microscope and she’ll catch a lot more for her actions than other non-celeb teens would.

leave her alone. She is just a teen, and the pictures arent bad.

that doesn’t even look like Miley in any of those pictures. Especially the one with the showing of the green bra!!!!

I just wish my stomach had ever looked like that! Seriously though, she didn’t do anything that bad and hopefully this mess will be enough to curb anything that would have been worse.

Who cares????

Maria April 25, 2008, 11:54 AM

Only white people and other ignorant people would say yea das fine, or so what, cuz they think they can get away with anything. I’ma be real, i don’t like it, and that’s not cute, and no I am not hating.

First off, I have no idea what Maria (above) and said.

Second, I could care less what Miley does. She is no role model for my girls. As parents, it’s our job to be good role models for our children. Don’t expect some stranger to be that for them.

The point is…don’t have pictures taken of you that you wouldn’t want anyone to see. Wrapping up in a sheet so that you look like you are naked is not that way I’d want my 15 year old daughter to be portrayed.

It doesn’t matter, just because she’s famous doesn’t mean you can judge her and at least she is sexy

MADDIE May 2, 2008, 3:10 AM

WELL SHE IS STILL MY ROAL MODEL AND I DONT THINK ANY DIFFERENT OF HER. SO WHAT SHE MADE A MISTAKE EVERYBODY DOES IT.I HAVE ONE QUESTION,WHY DOES EVERYONE FOLLOW HER SHE IS ONLY 15 SO LEAVE HER ALONE
