This is a scene from the movie "Mean Girls," written by Tina Fey and released in 2004. Lindsay Lohan stars as Cady, a girl who has grown up in Africa and recently moved back to the United States. She navigates her way around the social scene at her new high school, and tries to gain acceptance in the A-list girls clique “The Plastics.” In this scene, Cady describes the ‘slut rule’ about Halloween: “In girl world, Halloween is the one night of the year when a girl can dress like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it.”
Teen star Miley Cyrus came to fame as a family-friendly Disney character in “Hannah Montana”. As time progressed, she began to cultivate a more adult and sexualized image, like famous pop stars Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera before, as well as Selena Gomez and many more after. The release of this video in 2010 was the biggest signal that Cyrus was ready to break from her “good girl” Disney image. Sporting teased hair and dark bird wings, she calls herself the “rarest creature on earth, in captivity for the first time”, before she breaks free from the cage in a skimpy leotard, singing, “I can’t be tamed/I can’t be blamed/I can’t be changed.”

Her hand is also shown gripping a handful of arrows.
In this ad, actress and model Pamela Anderson adopts a stylized, sexual pose, while her skin is marked with black text that labels her body parts with the name given to corresponding cuts of meat.

PETA is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a animal rights organization.
