A source close to the situation explained:
Larry Rudolph is kind of a living legend in the music industry.
He's known for managing some of the biggest and brightest stars, including Britney Spears, and he's also known for conveniently being their manager when it's time to amp the sex appeal.
When Brit-Brit was 20, she charmed the 2001 VMAs with a suggestive snake performance, and she definitely didn't stop sexifying herself there!
So now that Miley Cyrus is under his wing (she hired him back in March), is he to hold accountable for the new level of provocative she's twerking on??
"Much as most average 20-year-olds don't listen to their parents, I would venture this mega-star isn't listening to anyone now either. I find it hard to believe that the over-sexualized image of Miley Cyrus is something which a member of her team is encouraging. Could anyone imagine the discussion between her and her staff where they are talking about what she should be doing with that oversized foam finger at the VMAs?"
Umm.. actually, we can! LOLz!!
But then again, our imagination is pretty wild! ;)
Meanwhile, another insider insists:
"She is just a very sexual girl. It's all Miley."
Well, let's think about it. She has shown signs of her blossoming sexuality ever since Can't Be Tamed and that pole-dancing scandal. Or what about that time she said sex was magical!?
That was all before Larry came into the picture!!
He may or may not have something to do with her and Britney's upcoming collaboration, but we're gonna have to side with the insiders here — Miley is a bird that can't be tamed, and she always has been!
