Miley Cyrus Pole Dancing Sparks Critics

Miley Cyrus ice cream pole dancing performance of 'Party In The USA' at the Teen Choice Awards 2009 has sparked criticism. Us magazine senior editor Ian Drew told Newsday: 'She already has this risque image, so it really wasn't much of a stretch. That's how Britney took off. She was the good girl gone bad, and it looks to be working for Miley as well.'

Disney spokesperson: 'Disney Channel won't be commenting on that performance, although parents can rest assured that all content presented on the Disney Channel is age-appropriate for our audience, kids 6-14, and consistent with what our brand values are.'

While Miley's adult actions may boost her career, it's not good for her
young fans. Child psychologist Wendi Fischer told Newsday: 'She's sending this message that this is 'OK' to do, and I don't think it is OK to do. Miley's only 16. Why is she rushing it?'
