Miley Cyrus, you have successfully shed your teen queen "Hannah Montana" persona in one well thought-out and sophisticated video -- "We Can't Stop" -- that showcases your edgy new image. You have clearly given a great deal of thought to how you might transition successfully from your goody-goody country girl "Hannah Montana" version of Miley, to the adult Miley that you knew you had to become in order to have a long-term musical career. Congrats, Miley on becoming the voice of a new generation of women who are comfortable in their own skins and excited about the lives and opportunities they have ahead!
