Miley Cyrus – Vanity Fair Pictures, June 2008


Miley Cyrus says Vanity Fair photo spread embarrasses her

“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,” Cyrus said Sunday in a statement through her publicist. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”

The Disney Channel, which airs Cyrus’ TV show “Hannah Montana,” was also critical of 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.

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.” Associated Press

what bullshit

sure mileys a hot piece of underage ass, but the only problem with these photos is she is the wrong way up when lying on her dads crotch

that shit with the sheet covering her is neither artistic or sexy so both sides of the argument should shut their dumbass-cocksucking mouths

she should lose the sheet and a few other articles of clothing

then you weiners can do what you love best and complain like bitches and i can do what i love best and jerk off

win-fucking-win

Miley is being allowed to call the shots on her own self-exploitation and hill-Billy and Wife are signing off on it just as Britney's and Jamie's equally scummy parental units did. It's too bad because Miley's not un-cute and had the potential to mature into a less skanky pop-starlette.

@26: That was profound. Mephistopheles himself might be moved at that critique.

PS...i don't understand all the grief so many people are giving her dad for posing for a picture with his daughter. are you all so fucked up that you can't handle father-daughter affection without assuming it implies incest or something inappropriate? come on, don't be so sick.

there needs to be a third option for that poll...i don't think they're slutty at all, but i'm not buying their artsiness either. of course the little bitch tells the media she's embarrassed by the pictures, because thats what her puppet master Disney execs told her to do.

and what is with vanity fair? they always make up their celebrities to look frighteningly pasty and washed out...it's not flattering or fashion-forward, IMO.

I agree with king biscuit. Someone needs to tell these rednecks who are whoring out their little kiddo about the backlash of overexposure.

In real life, where money rather than buzz is currency, it's called diminishing returns. Get with the program.

It was my daughter's 4th birthday yesterday and my aunt sent her Hannah Montana pyjamas. My daughter recognized her immediately from COMMERCIALS for all the SHIT they sell for her, and squealed with joy.

I don't even know what to make of all this.

I actually like picture number 2, her shirt needs to be pulled down a little, though. She has cute hips. :)

#40, you're scary. You're definitely a pedophile, creep.

sit DOWN little girl! look at her face like, you know you want! it's so gross; she's just a child. i want to puke. when i turned 18 a few years ago i was offered to do a photoshoot for a lingerie catalogue, potentially with similar "topless" poses. although nothing would be showing and although i was 18, i chose not to do it because i was still young and i didn't want to expose myself like that and have regrets later on. the funny thing is i do not consider myself to be a particularly moral person and i no longer really affiliate myself with any religion. it's sort of for the very reason of people like the cyrus family - we love jesus, we're so religious, morals and values all the way! and then they have their child pose like this and exploit her this way. some religion. i have more catholic values then you people, and i don't even belong to a religion. nor do i exploit my religion and use it to excuse slutty behavior.

i am keeping my nieces far far away from all this hannah montana shit.

I dont see anything wrong with the pics. I am not a fan of hers. I am a dad as well, I dont think that I would pose like he did,just cuz I am way cooler than that.

I really don't see how she or her folks can complain about the pictures - it's not as if the editor of Vanity Fair held a gun to their heads and screamed:

"DO THE FUCKIN SHOOT! YOU BASTARDS!"

I also doubt the magazine would falsify any details regarding the specifics of the situation, as the risk of a lawsuit would be too great.

The whole thing stinks of rhinoceros shit, it's very suspicious indeed. And if Miley isn't happy with the result of her decision? Tough. She'll have to put it down to experience and move on with her life.

#55, it's because Americans are hypocrites (no offence). In France or Italy, Miley Cyrus could be laying on the beach wearing nothing but a g-string and no one would care, mostly because she's ugly and there are far more prettier girls to look at.

Honestly, these photos don't shock me. Her dad looks too gay to be a perv who's into his daughter and she looks too ugly to be qualified as "jailbait".

I also have my little theory on how the entertainment business produces something "shocking" like the Janet Jackson nipple thing to keep people entertained and distracted from everything wrong that's going on in the country, like the recession.

# 45 Larry, what made you think that? The whole country fell apart when Janet Jackson flashed her nipple for a hundredth of a second, the current administration covered up the breast of the Lady of Justice statue. We are closer to Taliban rule than perfect freedom.

Americans are as fucked up about sexuality as ever.

I am usually really annoyed by Miley, but now I just feel sorry for her. No 15 year old girl should be exploited like that. Sick.

Agree the pic with her dad is the way creepier one. But typical, that's getting lost in the sauce with all the hubbub over the non-sexual "semi-nude," picture.

This is disgraceful and it isn't Miley's fault, it's her parents fault! That picture with her dad is so wrong I can't even put it into words. Miley is only 15 and children at that age are not capable of making those types of decisions. I have a daughter Miley's age and never in a freakin million years would I have allowed something like that. Billy Ray is a fucking loser who is wrecking his kids life for the almighty dollar. I give this girl one maybe two years tops before she ends up on drugs or worse.

Pic 2 just weirds me out like no other pic on Bastardly has ever done before, including shots of Paris, Kirsten Dunst and Britney. He looks like a pimp with his new call girl. There's nothing artistic about any of these shots, just overrated teenage expolitation by an overrated photographer who was given the go ahead by money hungry parents.

Wow, this was a wakeup call for me. I thought the U.S. in 2008 had overcome our idiotic puritanical ways. Should have known better. This afterall is the same country that voted for Bush.

Miley looks sluttier in her usual day-to-day wear and heavily made up face.

40 you're a gay little needle dick

The picture is well taken and she's sticking out her lower half to create the illusion of hips... and the fact that her dad is... ugh... whatever he's supposed to be doing... is making me sick to my stomach.

I don't think Miley is to blame, but whoever is in charge off these pictures, I mean the girl is a fucking idiot she doesn't know wtf she's doing. I think her comments are actualy sincere. She posts slutty pictures on myspace and shit like that, just like the rest of her peers!!, she's trying to attract guys her age, not give the idea that these pictures are obviously trying to give. It's too early, I don't even make sense. Fuck you Vanity Fair.

Hmm

Some people say Playboy is also "artistic." It's pictures of women buck naked and spread-eagled.

I agree with all comments about Pic 2 being creepy. It looks like one of the shots of her with her boyfriend. They're "embarrassed" by the pics because everyone is appalled by them. Billy Ray probably has them stashed in his bathroom.

Is she trying to get out of her Disney contract? She can't just go in and say she wants out?

Hopefully they'll all stay away from the cameras for a good month or two: overexposed.

Forget the "topless" shots (where's the nipple?)

The shots with her Dad are what's creepy here. How often do you think he is hitting that?

Call me cynical but this all stinks of publicity whoring.

She's wearing a sheet and pants covering more of her body than outfits she wears in most of the red carpet shots that seem to clog up Celebrity blogs. It sounds to me that Vanity fair want to sell more mags and miss Cyrus wants more headlines.

The shots with her dad creep me out more than a fugly child showing her back.

is that her father with her in the shoot? I don't think thats an appropriate pose.. and I cant believe her parents are even allowing her to take 'sexy' pics... :-[

she should be embarrassed because she's ugly.

These pictures are totally innocuous.

The photographer is a total hack. She is hand holding while shooting, cheapass couldn't afford a decent tripod I suppose. This Annie camera gal has made her name by shooting famous people, but she has little technical knowledge or artistic appreciation of photography. I see better stuff in amateur galleries at dpreview, fred mirandas etc.

uhh I really don't know what to say to any of this, its just to appalling, a fifteen year old, and the parents, I want even start on them!
