Miley Cyrus shows her sexy side in her music video for new single Can't Be Tamed.
The 17-year-old Disney star dances around a pole in a giant birdcage wearing a burlesque-style outfit of hotpants, corset, knee-high tassled-boots and long gloves.
Miley - who is dating her Last Song co-star Liam Hemsworth - admitted to E! News the video was sexy, but insisted that wasn't her main aim, saying: "It's a gorgeous video and it is a sexy video, and you can't really take that away from it, but it's not the premise."
She added: "The video isn't about being sexy or about who can wear less clothes, it's about explaining the song and living the lyrics."
Miley also hinted the track was about breaking free of her innocent young image.
She said: "It's about the core of, I don't want to be in cage, I want to be free and do what I love. I want to make the movies or make the music I want."
The singer and actress went on: "I'm excited for my fans and my friends to see the next step. I think I've waited a good amount of time. This isn't anything that will take me away from what people know me as, it's just the next step.
"It's not a new Miley, it's just a new part of me. There's nothing in the video for me that I wouldn't be proud for my family to see. I think they can all watch it. It's the first step of growing up."
