Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has taken on a more adult look as of late on the promotional trail for her new album, Can’t Be Tamed, and RadarOnline.com asked stars backstage at the 2010 BET Awards at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium Sunday night if they think Miley’s trying to grow up too fast.
“Well, you know I understand how she’d want to grow out of being a Disney kid and she is talented,” kid star Gabi Wilson, 13, told RadarOnline.com’s Jessica Campbell.
Celeb Apprentice finalist Holly Robinson Peete said, “My daughter was a Miley Cyrus fan and as she is sort of leaving behind her Hannah Montana and moving on to bigger and sexier things … you know she is 17 and I remember I wanted to be grown at 17.”
Bad Girl extraordinaire Natalie Nunn said Miley had to escape the little girl image sooner or later.
“I think she is growing up — we got to let it go,” Nunn said. “You can only be 16, 15, 14 for so long. Let it go, she is a big girl now.”
The Blind Side actor Quinton Aaron said: “She’s grown I think — she’s legal I guess.” (You guessed wrong, big guy — Miley doesn’t turn 18 until November.)
The BET Awards encore airs Tuesday at 7/6c on BET.
