Miley Cyrus 'Embarrassed' by Vanity Fair

Miley Cyrus 'Embarrassed' by Vanity Fair

Miley Cyrus says that she’s “embarrassed” about semi-topless photographs of herself in the June 2008 issue of Vanity Fair.

“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,” says the 15-year-old Disney sensation, who posed with a blanket wrapped around her chest. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”

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

The Miley photos, which were taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, hits newsstands next week.

UPDATE 1: People reports that Miley‘s parents left before the final picture at the photo shoot but her grandmother and teacher were there. Miley also added, “My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with Annie. 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. The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone. Most of all, I have let myself down. I will learn from my mistakes and trust my support team. My family and my faith will guide me through my life’s journey.”

UPDATE 2: The New York Times has a piece on Miley‘s topless photo scandal. The Vanity Fair article was written by Bruce Handy and quotes Miley as saying, “Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought it was really cool. That’s what she wanted me to do, and you can’t say no to Annie.” She also said of the photo, “I think it’s really artsy. It wasn’t in a skanky way.”

    ok. i’m really outraged by this photo. i understand that miley is only 15, and it’s a confusing age, especially for someone who is in the limelight. I was 15 and made a lot of mistakes, but come on. 15, exposing yourself like that to the world, I feel bad for little girls like my 7 yr old niece who watches hannah montana. thank god she hasn’t seen this picture, b/c she would hate you. Even at 7 she has the sense to know what is appropriate & what is not. The picture isn’t bad as far as pictures go, but it isn’t even “artsy”. it looks exactly like what it is, a little girl trying to grow up faster than she needs to. Folks, don’t be so hard on Miley. She doesn’t need to be called derogatory names. It’s not ALL her fault. First, the parents should be slapped. What parent would look @ their 15 yr old daughter, topless, w/ a blanket knowing most of the world will see it and say, oh this is a good idea. Second the higher ups in vanity fair should be slapped for thinking this would be a good idea. & Miley should be slapped so she can learn a lesson. And as much as I love Annie Leibowitz’s work, she should be slapped for going along with this. I love art, and I understand wanting to make edgy art, but as an adult, suggesting to a 15 yr old to get topless for the public is very destructive. It’s called a brain ppl, use it. Eventhough she is 15 and its the age where girls start discovering their sexuality she isn’t old enough to show it to everyone and she knows it! Little girls who try to act older than they are end up getting raped, losing their virginity to some loser who doesn’t give a flying **** about them, or having emotional issues the rest of their lives. If miley keeps going this way, and everyone keeps letting her shes going to be just like…can anyone guess?? Lindsay Lohan. Why can’t little girls just be little girls & enjoy it while their young? You want to act grown up, give her about 10 bills, a baby to take care of, and make her get a minimum wage job where she makes $200 a week & see how much she wants to be grown up then. This is just bad parenting, with bad decision making on all parts. it’s really sad. If she wanted to make an artsy photograph to show who she is, and not be looked at as hannah montana she could have done it in a different way with her clothes on. I love that she wants to be who she wants to be, but she is in the public eye, and unfortunately for her her public eye is little girls who look up to her. Stuff like this is why little girls think the only way they can be pretty is to let their bodies hang out of their clothes and wear way too much make up and do things that a 20 year old WOMAN is doing. Miley, your not a woman, deal with it. You will be one day, but not for at least 5 more years.

    I don’t know what i feel about her… I think she’s a good professional, but not a good person… But i can’t judge somebody that i don’t know, so… Do what you have to do, miley.
