PEOPLE IN BRIEF: Miley Cyrus: 'I'm not trying to be slutty'

LONDON -- Miley Cyrus won't be told what she should wear or what she should sing about.

The 17-year-old is releasing new album, ''Can't Be Tamed,'' and is doing it her way, even though some say she is going to too far for her age.

''I'm not trying to be 'slutty,''' said Cyrus in a recent interview. ''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.''

What she wears has been put under the spotlight recently. Some thought the video for ''Can't Be Tamed'' was too provocative, and others have criticized her for revealing too much skin in her outfits.

Cyrus admits to being partial to shorts and hot pants. But she sees nothing wrong with flashing her legs.

''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.''

Police: Second Sheen car taken, rolled off LA cliff

LOS ANGELES -- For the second time in five months, a Mercedes-Benz owned by ''Two and a Half Men'' star Charlie Sheen was stolen and sent off Mulholland Drive near his Santa Monica Mountains home, authorities said Tuesday.

Firefighters responding to a report of a traffic accident found the silver Mercedes S600 about 100 feet down a brushy ravine around 3 a.m., Fire Department spokesman Eric Scott said.

Nobody was in the car.

The car showed no signs of forced entry, police Officer Bruce Borihanh said. He could not confirm television reports that the keys were in the ignition.

However, the car was running and had its lights on, fire Battalion Chief Peter Benesch said.

Police officers checked the plates of the 2010 vehicle and confirmed it was Sheen's, Officer Norma Eisenman said.
