Picture this. Take the hit series Sex and the City, clean it up a bit (ok, clean it up a lot), and recast the lead as a teen celebrity instead of a post-20’s career woman. Having a hard time with that mental picture? Miley Cyrus isn’t. In the upcoming issue of TV Guide, Cyrus talks about that as well as the concert she has airing on The Disney Channel later this month.

In this week’s TV Guide issue, set to hit shelves on Thursday, Cyrus tells TV Guide, “I’d love to do a younger, cleaner version of Sex and the City.” Huh? What exactly is a cleaner version of Sex and the City (unless you count he watered down, edited reruns they air on TBS)? The whole premise of Sex and the City is the portrayal of single over-30’s dating (and having lots of sex) in New York City. Take away the sex and the 30-somethings and what’s left of the show? In terms of Miley’s vision of a chaste Carrie Bradshaw, that quote is really all we have to go on until the latest TV Guide comes out.

In somewhat related news, the issue also includes a set of 3-D glasses, which can be used to enjoy Cyrus’ televised concert, Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, which airs on The Disney Channel on July 26th. I’m about 15 years too old to care about Cyrus’ concert but back in my day, 3-D on TV always sucked. It’s true, technology has changed since then so I’m curious to know whether or not the 3-D glasses will actually succeed in allowing viewers to see Cyrus flinging her hair out of their TV screens or if it’s just going to be a slightly blurred image that’s supposed to look 3-dimentional.
