“Come on, baby—keep provokin’ me, keep on ropin’ me like a rodeo,” Miley Cyrus commands on her latest single, “Who Owns My Heart.” Like “Can’t Be Tamed,” the video for the dance-pop jam serves as a declaration of sexy independence that finds the Hannah Montana superstarlet exploring her naughtier side. And this time she’s rolling around like a minx in a little black dress in the backseat of limo. See who owns Miley’s heart after the jump!
The dark and seedy video for “Who Owns My Heart,” directed by Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed” collaborator Robert Hales, finds the 17-year-old babyvixen once again grinding up against boys and girls. (And we know Miley has had plenty of practice with age-inappropriate dance moves.)
But while we could sit here all day and ramble on like a broken record that—gasp!—Miley Cyrus is acting like a wild, wanton young lady, let’s give her props for turning out what is essentially a damn fine pop song. Unfortunately, it’s one that radio may choose to overlook given the shaky start the Can’t Be Tamed album started out on after a weak lead single.
Miley’s still young. And she’s till learning. Hopefully by her next LP she learns that less is more, and you don’t have to hammer folks over the head with provocative antics to be appealing.
She could have appeared in this video alone and we’d still be interested in finding out who owns her heart.
