Poor Miley Cyrus. The 15-year-old stripped down for a photo shoot with renowned photographer Annie Leibowitz for a Vanity Fair shoot; images of which were all digital and looked at that day with VF peeps, her family, and Annie. Everyone dug them. But now that the media’s a little shocked, Miley’s changed her tune.

“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 told Entertainment Tonight. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”

Miley apologized yesterday to her fans for the photo in question, which shows Miley sitting in profile with just a blanket wrapped around her chest.

Vanity Fair editors respond: “Miley’s parents and/or minders were on the set all day. 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 fact, when Bruce Handy interviewed Miley, he asked her about the photo and she was very cheerful about it and thought it was perfectly fine.” [ET]

A Disney Channel spokesperson says: “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”

Uh-huh. All we’re wondering is why anyone thought it was appropriate for a 15-year-old to drop her top in the first place. After all, she’s only three years shy of being a real centerfold.

  1. Um, Miley’s entire “career” is the deliberate manipulation of a 15 year old, to sell CDs, movies, concert tickets, clothes, magazines and lots of other merchandise. She is a multi-gazillion dollar business, and everything about this “controversy” was carefully planned. Most child rock stars don’t make it much past age 19 or so (but I know Tiffany is going to make a comeback one of these days) and this is a carefully planned effort to get Miley to be perceived as an adult. It is intended to give her a head start on surviving as a marketable commodity in the grown up entertainment market. The reaction of everyone involved in this nothing issue is intended to get attention, and obviously its working. Just as they made dozens of sketches of the photos before the shoot, picked out the wardrobe, the location, etc., they had Miley’s “apology” written and ready to go. And everyone, including Disney, is loving every minute of it. Kachinng, Kachinng.

    I think the photo is creepy because of her facial expression, not the fact that her back is exposed.
