Miley Cyrus says the series of provocative outfits she's been sporting while performing her new single, Can't Be Tamed in Europe are just unintentionally slutty.

"I'm not trying to be 'slutty,'" Cyrus told The AP. "I'm not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys ... What I'm trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress."

So her record sounds slutty?

Miley went on to profess her love of dressing for less -- as in less clothing.

"I'm really comfortable with my body, I work really hard to be fit and to know that I can wear whatever makes me most comfortable. I feel more comfortable dressing with a little less, which is just how I've always been," she said. "Now I'm able to do that a little more freely and, also, I've just grown up to be this way too. It's not like this was me five years ago. It's me now, presently."

Miley is still only seventeen ... which makes her a minor ... which makes the "not slutty" looks she's apparently grown into so much more inappropriate.

Miley, we get that you want to graduate from your Disney Darling image like yesterday, but there IS a big difference between sexy and slutty and we're not quite sure you've passed that test yet...
