The Can’t Be Tamed Singer is rapidly growing up, concerning parents who are worried their kids look up to 17-year-old Miley as Hannah Montana.

Speaking about the hit Disney show, Miley told the Montreal Gazette: “You don’t want it to grow up too much, where the younger audience feel they can’t watch the show anymore.”

“Yes, I want to be a role model and have people look up to me, but this also doesn’t mean that I am not going to live the way that I want to live or [do] what I think is right.” she added.
