Talk about having her cake and eating it too.

Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus seems ashamed of the squeaky-clean image she spawned and cashed in on as star of that show.

It’s a shame, and it’s a part of the bad is good, good is bad mentality that so many people have in this day and age.

“People see me as this perfect Disney star, and the moment I put out a record that says ‘I’m not 11 years old anymore,’ people look down on me,” Cyrus told Jett, according to People magazine.

Cyrus is referring to rocker Joan Jett (“I Love Rock and Roll) as a role-model, an odd choice of someone decades older, and perhaps just an odd choice period.

Cyrus, who has been photographed in provocative dress recently, seems torn for making millions of dollars as a “clean cut” kid who now wants to abandon that image but still be loved.

You only need to watch about a minute of her video, “I Can’t Be Tamed” to see what direction Cyrus is headed in.

Being accepted for who you are sounds great and ideal, but who exactly is Miley Cyrus?

Does she even know who she is or who she wants to be?

Did “being good” as she was in Hannah Montana destroy Miley Cyrus?

Or is pretending to be bad, as she may well be doing now, going to hurt her even more in the long run?

To me, there was nothing wrong with Miley being cute, decent and sweet as a youngster.

The mentality that we have to embrace “rotten-ness” as we get older as a sign of so-called maturity is just plain wrong.
