15 year old Hannah Montana star, Miley Cyrus, posed topless for Vanity Fair with nothing but a sheet covering her breasts(?). This has reportedly caused outrage with her fans and the public, because no one realized Vanity Fair was a kiddie porn magazine. Coincidentally, Cyrus now thinks it was a bad idea. ABC News reports:
I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed,” she said in a statement. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
In a statement, Disney took the opportunity to blame Vanity Fair:
Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines,” a network statement said.”
However, Vanity Fair insists that Miley and her parents were well aware of the photos and approved the shoot:
Miley’s parents and/or minders were on the set all day,” the magazine said. “Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.” In a caption released by Vanity Fair with the photo last week, Cyrus expressed her comfort with how the apparently topless picture turned out.”I think it’s really artsy,” she told the magazine at the time. “It wasn’t in a skanky way. Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That’s what she wanted me to do, and you can’t say no to Annie.”
Whatever. Miley Cyrus takes skankier pictures than these herself every day and posts them on the online, so please don’t tell us she’s embarrassed. Mostly because it’s easy to talk 15 year old attention whores into anything. Especially if you have your own car and can buy them cigarettes. They like cigarettes.
