Hmm, what's the word? Oh yeah: Ick!

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner tells Extra he'd like Miley Cyrus to pose in his magazine, once the Disney star is of legal age.

Said Hef: "Sure, she'd be welcomed in the magazine. Very pretty lady. And I think to make such a big to-do over something as innocent as those [ Vanity Fair] photos, I think is a reflection on how schizophrenic America is about sexuality."
