The Critics Love Tamed!

Tina Warren of MTV NEWS said the video was a good step toward ridding Cyrus of her good-girl image and gave the video a positive review, calling it “intriguing” and stating, “The video […] is actually quite magnetic and you can’t look away”. Tanner Stransky of Entertainment Weekly agreed. While he acknowledged the video “might be dark and a tad conceptually racy”, he claimed it was smart move. “She isn’t moving too fast, honestly […] it’s not like Miley is stripping or baring much skin”. Rather, Stransky said Cyrus had “some super-fun dance moves” and “[made] a statement”, albeit a darker one. Chinese newspaper People’s Daily said the video featured “bold” costumes and “reveal[ed] [Cyrus’s] sexy side”.Daniel Rutledge of 3 News in New Zealand said Cyrus had made “it very clear she wishes to cast aside any resemblance to the Disney alter ego that made her famous and be regarded from now on as an adult singer.” Singaporean newspaper My Paper defended Cyrus against claims that the video was too provocative and reported, “If nothing else, this vid shows that Cyrus knows how to entertain, and marks the beginning of truly high-quality videos.”  Jarett Wieselman of The New York Post said he liked the song and that though he did not buy Cyrus’s “Party in the USA” (2009), he feared he would not “be able to resist” buying “Can’t Be Tamed”. He said the song had a “naughty old school Britney Spears” vibe, called it “totally catchy” and predicted it would be a summer hit.
