The We Can't Stop hitmaker, who began her career in kids show Hannah Montana before later courting controversy with her drug-taking, frequent nudity, and raunchy onstage antics, revealed on Monday (20Jul15) that she will front the star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles next month (Aug15).

However, bosses behind America's Parents Television Council (PTC), a censorship advocacy group, have now slammed MTV officials for recruiting the star as host, insisting Cyrus will make the ceremony unsuitable for younger children.

PTC president Tim Winter tells, "I think it's unfortunate she built her entire career on the backs of parents and now she's basically giving them the middle finger... She's smart. She's talented. She knows how to turn it up, turn it down if she so chooses... It's not going to be safe for children to watch... With Miley's shtick, it's probably going to be very edgy, very profane, very sexually explicit...

"This year, clearly, they're going to try to ramp it back up again. And based on everything we've seen Miley doing in recent years, she certainly seems angry and certainly seems enjoying being the provocateur. She's dropping F-bombs in her (hosting) announcement on social media, which isn't unusual, but it tees up the kind of content... Miley's the performer. She can do whatever she wants to. She's hired to perform and be provocative."

Cyrus hit headlines when she staged a racy performance with Robin Thicke at the annual awards ceremony in 2013.
