The “dirty dancing” tape featuring teen sensation Miley Cyrus has hit the Internet, and although it’s producing a fair amount of “tut-tuts” it’s clear many critics haven’t been to a junior high school dance lately.
Miley, who was 16 at the time and actually high-school aged, might get scolded by the school principal for her raucous behavior, but it’s not exactly a Kim Kardashian sex tape. (That undoubtedly will come later.)
The tape shows the singer-actress giving “The Last Song” producer Adam Shankman, who happens to be gay, a lap dance during their film’s wrap party last year.
“The video was taken about seven months ago at a wrap party for ‘The Last Song’,” a source told gossip Web site Radaronline.
“The worst part is that there were little kids at the party and the dancing between Miley and Adam was so dirty that some of the parents actually left the party and took their kids home,” the source claimed.
Miley has been sexualized ever since she posed for Vanity Fair photos wrapped in a sheet. They were provacative when they were taken. She was 15.
Several private photos of her were also leaked online by a hacker, in which she posed in her underwear and a bikini.
But Miley will be 18 in November, and these claims of racy behavior are fast losing steam.
The video reportedly shows Shankman, with a drink in hand as he bumping up against Cyrus’ backside on the dance floor; she grinds back as well.
Radar reported that the Disney star, then 16, turns around and seductively opens the top layer of her shirt, teasing Shankman with her flirty dance moves.
But that’s a clear exaggeration. Miley is obviously working up a sweat and tugs on her tee-shirt not once but twice, like she’s trying to get some air.
Last June, the producer posted a photo of Cyrus on Twitter showing her posing in a make-up chair. The photos caused a major stir. But Shankman defended them.
“Miley is a sweet angel who works tirelessly and endlessly, and is allowed to have fun in the make up room!” Shankman, 45, said at the time.
“Lighten up or no more behind the scenes pics! She’s my little angel sister,” he said.
It’s distinctly possible that someone in Miley’s camp is purposely shopping around the video to ramp up Miley’s visibility as she begins promoting her next album.
Cyrus is due to release her latest studio album on June 22, according to an announcement posted on the singer’s Web site.
The first single on the album “Can’t Be Tamed” will be available for download on iTunes on May 18. Her video for the single was released last week.
