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?

You want your childs role model to be
half naked.My child came up to me and
said I want to be just like miley cyrus
and the next day she posted on my
home page for sending half naked picture
of herself to her boyfriend.She can stay
the same way but.I don’t want my child
to be like her.
