Miley Cyrus Kisses Female Dancer During Stage Performance

Miley Cyrus performed her new single "Can't Be Tamed" on "Britain's Got Talent," and shared a kiss with one of her female dancers during the performance.

The 17-year-old singer and star of the TV show "Hannah Montana" followed Lady Gaga's lead and went pantless for her performance, wearing a black leotard, fishnets and heels. About one minute into the song, she grabbed one of her dancers, dipped her low, and planted several pantomimey kisses on her lips. From the camera angle, it was impossible to see whether Miley's lips actually touched her dancer's, but we were definitely supposed to assume they did.

Cyrus has been in the news recently for her risque behavior: the media recently took her to task for  getting steamy with director Adam Shankman, who she worked with on the film "The Last Song." Video has surfaced of her bumping and grinding with Shankman at a party, and performing a lap dance for him. Shankman also shared some behind-the-scenes pictures from "The Last Song" on his Twitter account, including one of Miley seductively straddling a makeup chair. Shankman's openly gay, and so Miley may have felt it was harmless fun to joke around with him. He defended her by tweeting: "Miley is a sweet angel who works tirelessly and endlessly, and is allowed to have fun in the make up room! Seriously! Lighten up or no more behind the scenes pics!"

It's clear Cyrus is itching to grow up already. Her stage costumes are becoming ever more provocative: recently, she bared her belly in a cut-off "Cheap Trick" T-shirt, and was seemingly unaware of the irony of her clothing's message. She played a Portugal gig in an alarmingly revealing green leotard, pictures of which were all over the Internet the next day.
