Miley Cyrus in her new video

WHEN it comes to plumbing the depths of taste, it may have seemed that Miley Cyrus could sink no lower.

But even the singer’s own fans have joined the backlash against her latest raunchy video, branding it gross’, sick’ and pornographic’.

The former Disney star has been accused of cynically exploiting’ her hordes of teenage fans by releasing an X-rated video of herself on Christmas Day simulating masturbation to the sound of her new single Adore You.

Last night, it prompted one of the Government’s main advisors on online child safety, the secretary of the Children’s Charity Commission John Carr, to call for immediate action to ensure such videos have 18+ age ratings.

He said: Lots of children and young teenagers will be browsing the internet with the tablets and mobile phones they have been given for Christmas.

And one of the first things they will have stumbled across on Boxing Day is this explicit video. Instead of being freely available online it should be hidden behind age-filters.’

On Twitter, one fan said: I love her but Miley is so desperate to separate herself from Hannah Montana she is sexualising everything and it’s a little gross.’

Another added: Miley’s new video is literally just soft porn.’

Last night, the video had more than 330,000 views on YouTube.

Pippa Smith of Safer Media, a charity that campaigns against violence, sex and cursing in the media, called the video a new low’ in teenage pop culture. – Daily Mail
