Cyrus' raunchy performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs has garnered mixed reactions, but the majority of the "Blurred Lines" backlash is coming from advocates and parents of the singer's young fans. In fact, the Parents Television Council is outraged by Cyrus' explicit VMA performance, which featured barely there ensembles and graphic dance moves that included a foam finger prop.

"MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials - while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14," Dan Isett, a member of the PTC, said. "This is unacceptable." The PTC also warned of the negative impact promoting sexually-charged performances can have on impressionable children.

"MTV continues to exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-years-old?" the organization asked. Others argue that the controversy behind Cyrus' raunchy new image is common when child stars transcend their youthful appearance.

In fact, upon closer inspection, harbingers of Cyrus' edgy makeover can be seen through the years. While Cyrus rose to fame as Hannah Montana, the Disney star had a squeaky clean image, and appealed to her younger fans in age-appropriate ensembles. Yet, as Cyrus' career excelled, the singer started to experiment with more racy looks.

By 2010, Cyrus had a new beau (Liam Hemsworth) and a new look to match. At the premiere of The Last Song, Cyrus wore a tight leather dress, and although the cut was conservative, it was a drastic divergence from her formally floral preferences. Just two years later, coinciding with her 18th birthday, Cyrus appeared to have finally found herself.

Cyrus debuted her short hair in 2012, and with ther new 'do came her sexy new style. The singer has since stuck to revealing ensembles, with sexual references, like the Versace mini she wore in 2013. While Cyrus' VMA performance undoubtedly proved that she has left her Disney years behind, it remains to be seen how the singer will top herself next.
