Miley Cyrus is never out of trouble! The singer just pissed off some people in the U.K. after her MAC Cosmetics ad was released and was a little too, well, um Miley for them.

In a new MAC Viva Glam ad, Miley is wearing a rhinestone and sequined swimsuit while lying on her back with her legs pointed in the air and slightly apart in front of a mirror. There are no shots of her lady parts, she is covered. The only thing that could be racy is just a bit of cleavage squeezed from her suit. Really, boobs? Yep.

The British Advertising Standards Authority was called in due to complaints that the twerking queen's ads were "overtly sexual" and "unsuitable for display as posters in public areas where children could see them."

MAC was all about sticking up for Miles. The company described her pose as "confident" with a "defiant stare" meant to attract viewers. The ASA didn't quite agree but didn't disagree enough to do anything about it.

"While we considered that the images in all three posters were sexually suggestive, we concluded however, that they were not overtly sexual and unlikely to cause serious or widespread offence," they said. They ruled that Miley's MAC ads aren't allowed near schools, though.
