There's a big part of me that thinks that all the bru-ha-ha with Miley Cyrus and various pictures has been very intentional. She's seen by the world now as a child star. She can only ride that wave for so far before she loses her cuteness, kids discover a new hot star on Disney, and she's done. To go beyond Hannah Montanna, she's going to have to be seen as something more -- namely a mature teenager or young adult. When these pictures come out, intentional or not, they put a different image of her in the minds of casting directors. So I wonder how much she's really falling victim to, and how much is a deliberate effort to propel her to that next step.
