Sinead O'Connor did it, Bette Midler did it, Cher did it — and now Melissa Joan Hart is the latest celebrity to comment on Miley Cyrus and her half-naked music videos and crazy onstage antics.
Hart, the former teen star of "Clarissa Explains It All" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," released her memoir, "Melissa Explains It All," last month and sat down with MTV this week to warn Cyrus
to beware of "oversharing."
"These days it's really tricky. The business has changed from when I was young. There weren’t things like social media. There wasn’t the Internet. There wasn’t TMZ and there weren’t all these outlets and places," Hart, 37, said. "They need content to fill and so they're digging more into people's personal lives and following you around and looking at everything.

"People like Miley Cyrus… she's incredibly talented and she got a lot of notoriety for, you know, acting like a young girl onstage. I think she'll be all right. You can't judge her on that; you have to wait another five to 10 years and see where she goes."
Hart wrote about her own escapades as a young adult in her new book, including one time when she took ecstasy at a party at the Playboy Mansion and kissed a girl.
"I was kind of running with a bad crowd," she told Life & Style magazine.
"I just didn't enjoy taking drugs. I don't like the loss of control."
Hart also shared with MTV some advice for today's group of hard-partying celebrities.
"When you're a teenager or young adult, you think that everything you have to say is the most important thing ever and the funniest thing ever or the coolest thing ever and you share it all," she said. "It's going to be interesting to see in the next few generations how we pick politicians and everything else because we're going to know everything about everybody. So I just say to those kids that you gotta be careful about what you put out there and what you really want people to know. Keep some for yourself, keep some secrets so you can write a book later on."
