Miley Cyrus, the Pole Truth

Viewers of tonight's Teen Choice Awards will be shocked at the teen queen's choice of dance partner.

Oops she did it again. No, that's not Britney working the pole, but Miley Cyrus, apparently well on her way to following in the pop wreck's footsteps.

While taping the show that airs tonight on FOX, the scantily clad "Hannah Montana" star channels Nomi Malone, from the uber-trashy cult favorite "Showgirls," by gyrating on a stripper pole, flanked by her posse of dancers.

Of course, it's not the first time Cyrus has attempted to undermine her sanitized Disney image. She's posed semi-nude in Vanity Fair, and has had her share of risqué images leaked across the Internet

As they've done countless times before, many are ready to take the teen star to task for what they deem as raunchy behavior. But according to Dr. Michelle Golland, a licensed clinical psychologist, the Miley bashing is out of hand. "The public is putting this hyper-focus on her and her sexuality." The truth is, says Golland, "She looks like any pop star transitioning her image."

As far as the Teen Choice performance, Golland doesn't even believe Cyrus was pole dancing. "I've seen pole dancing," she says. "Miley was holding onto a pole. It doesn't count." Ultimately, remarks Golland, "She could have been doing things that were much more inappropriate."

Considering some of the dances teens are doing these days, is Miley's pole dancing any different?
