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.”

    So lame. It shouldn’t matter if it’s supposed to be “artistic.” She’s 15 years old.

    I kinda feel bad for her because her parents didn’t do anything to stop her from this photo shoot. She is 15 didn’t they realize that if anything it would royally screw over her reputation. I never thought the pictures of her in her underwear or with her boyfriend were bad because well she is a teenager and that’s kinda what we do. but i don’t think i have ever seen any 15 year olds topless in a magazine and why… because they have parents and reps that keep them from making stupid mistakes like that. weather they took advantage of her or not her parents should have stopped her from even going to this photo shoot.

    i love miley but honestely, that’s ****. she’s fifteen, she knew what she was doing. she knew what she was doing in that photoshoot and all those other pictures that have leaked on the internet. if she really is that vulnerable, she should not be in the hollywood spotlight.

    Miley is 15 people, 15!

    It would be her parents or whoever was there that told her the pictures looked okay. Miley obviously didn’t say ‘ hey guys, i want to take a picture with a blanket over me’
    So, I would say whoever persuaded her ( the photographer) and others who told her they were artistic and looked great, are more to blame than she is.
    Still, I personally do think they are artistic and pretty, but coming amidst all of this, isn’t helping any.

    I still support Miley, and I agree.
    Everyone is gonna make mistakes in life, and there is nothing you can do about it.

    We aren’t perfect.

    this is bull. she knew what she was doing. i’m so sick of all her attention, she can’t sing and she can’t act. all her apology statements are the freakin same. and she’s always going on about how her family keeps her grounded, i don’t see how a 15 can do that & everything be ok at home, especially with all her other pictures.

    shes on her way to destruction…

    Allie Says:

    ok first of all, how could she not think it was not ****** to take a picture holding up only a sheet to cover her???? and anyways this pic makes her look mlike a vampire… i knwo it isn’t really her fault for this picture but still she took ALLLLLLL thos eother pics of herself.

    sillyme Says:

    Where were her parents? First, since she’s 15, at least one should be there for all photoshoots. Second, it’s hard to believe her parents couldn’t see and/or approve the photos.

    Remy Says:

    “Ate a baby” Ha thats funny.

    When you’re in a photoshoot, and you’re done taking the pictures, the photographer lets you see it afterwards. Not in Americas Next Top Model obviously but in real life modeling for celebs they usually let them see a peek. So that whole, “I had no idea it would look like that” crap is so false. I don’t even know who told her to say that cause most know thats not true.

    “I’m not perfect.” Ha. Thats a bit of a understatement.

    I think Disney should be very careful. First, Annie Lebowitz is “artistic” and Vanity Fair is a respected publication. I’m sorry that Disney’s stable of teen girls can’t behave – with provocative at home photo shoots and teen pregnancies, but that isn’t the fault of Vanity Fair. I believe that Miley and her family knew exactly what they were doing, and only after the green bra photos hit the internet are they now “embarassed” by this “unfortunate” manipulation of their “girl”.

    How could she not know what she was doing
    and lets say teenagers are vulnerable
    WHY are her parents allowing it?
    “everything i do is for jesus”
    -Miley Cyrus
    is this for jesus too?
    I’m not sure jesus would approve.

    joss Says:

    obviously she knew what she was doing…when you are 15, you can’t be that dumb. The only reason she is saying this because now she knows that people don’t like it, and she’s afraid of losing it all!

    Responding to MILEY CYRUS’ statement that she feels “embarrassed” by an upcoming photo of her semi-topless in the new Vanity Fair issue, editors at the mag tell ET: “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.”

    i don’t forgiv e her one bit. I liked her at one point and i didn’t at another. I liked her again but now it’s just gone way too far with this “pictures” deal. SHE’S the manipulator to all of AMERICA she’s manipulated everyone around even THE JONAS BROTHERS and i’m not gonna stand for this she needs to be…to be…GROUNDED!!!

    the first time she did i was like oh ok at least she apologized and explained herself for it but this is like the 3rd time already enough is enough. My little Sister is a fan and i made her look at all her provocative pictures and she’s so sad that she would do this. I made her throw away all her cds and other hannah montana crap

    I’m glad she apologized, but there’s no way a 15 year old doesn’t know what’s going on. She was there when the photo was taken. She posed for it. It’s not like someone forced her to take her shirt off and pose topless. She wasn’t manipulated because she did this willingly and with the intent of the picture being seen.

    Ugh, that Christian and Disney brainwashed kid is so annoying. Why doesn’t she just apologize for her “music”? THAT would make sense.

    haha. she dosent feel bad, she is just saying that so she can cover up that she is really a ****!

    please that is completly stupid, if she didn’t want to do it she shouldn’t have had to… She chose to. she’s not 3 years old, she’s 15! she new this one for a magazine it wasn’t like her little photographs all over the next when she exposes herself in a bra or panties with her girlfrieds, which I think is worse.
    This is a totally elegant picture, and she apologizes for this intead of showing her green bra to everyone…
    she’s a moron…
