Many singers have gone back to the classroom and lived out their good school girl gone bad fantasies in their music videos. We’ve seen ladies channel their inner naughty school girl, ripping off the plaid skirts and ties and definitely risking a detention. In P!nk‘s “Don’t Let Me Get Me” we get an up close and personal look inside the locker room, and in Bon Jovi‘s “Runaway” a school girl in a white button up uniform unknowingly becomes part of a wet t-shirt contest.

Me and Robin the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,’ ” Cyrus told MTV just days after the show. With her tongue hanging out, she did just that.
