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.”

Miley Thanks 4 apologizing

go annie lebowitz…she is the only true artist in this scenario.

MAN she is one dumb ****!

she is full of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i’m really glad that she was able to apologize and be mature about this whole situation. i do honestly think that she is a good kid, she just slips sometimes- everyone does. :)

go miley !! :D

I’m not buying this whole i’m embarrassed crap the only reason whys he’s feeling like this is because she knows this isn’t the first time and she knows this can instantly tarnished her career as it should!

im not bying it.
slutt!
YEAH RIGHT.
“she is SORRY”

shes soooooooooANNOYING.

BAD ROLE MODEL

The point should be, is why at 15 would she allow anyone to take these pics in the first place. I call bullshit on her story. Disney better start cracking down on these wholesome ho’s their sellin’ to the kiddies.

“People reports that Miley’s parents left before the final picture at the photo shoot but her grandmother and teacher were there”

Miley: “That’s what she (Annie) wanted me to do, and you can’t say no to Annie.”

Annie Leibovitz is a shark folks. She even asked the Queen of England to take off her crown but she is wiser than 15yo Miley.

Way to go Annie. You waited until the parents left and moved in like a shark. Disgusting manipulating creature.

wow. some of you people are actually believing this disgusting 15 year old’s BULL? she knew exactly what she was doing. just like she knew exactly what she doing the 3 other times she took pictures of herself. and that apology obviously was forced and done just so her reputation wouldn’t go down more than it is. and in the ‘apology’ she says she will ‘learn from her mistakes’? you’ve already made 3 mistakes, idiot- and obviously, you haven’t learned. wow, does she really think she will convince people that she didn’t know what she was doing? that she thought topless photos were going to turn out ‘artistic’? come on.

I’m literally showing this pic to all my Sister’s little friends because they were watching hannah montana they are outraged they turned off the tv in disgust.

she wanted that picture to be taken!did it ever occur to her that shes just 15 and mostly her fans are 12andbelow! and shes calling that picture “artsy” ?? what a ****!! from the moment she became famous i knew that shes guna be the next lindsay lohan! ****!

I don’t really like her, but it is easy for things to spin out of control and even though it started with the right intentions, to be seen as something it wasn’t supposed to be. I hope things work out for her.

Where are the Jonas Brothers and Brenda Song? They need to come and support her now.

I somehow feel sorry for her. However it’s suspicious that she’s suddenly embarrased by the photoshoot. You and your grandmother were not embarrased when it was being taken? What did your parents think?

I just feel that with the noise over internet pictures (which were not really bad to me) not dying away quietly and ET covering the photoshoot, Disney and her parents decided to do damage control.
I’m sure they saw the picture and article before ET got it. It seemed they waited to guage reactions before acting.

This doesn’t make her a bad girl, it just makes her parents and family quite irresponsible and hypocritical. They know her fanbase, they could have said no. They also know she’s at the age where she needs careful guidance and they abandoned that responsibility.

The photographer, Annie, is world renowned and Miley blames the entire thing on her. Come on. Miley knew showing up to the shoot what she was going to be doing. As always, the Vanity Fair photos are gorgeous, but Miley needs to learn about what she is getting into before she turns around and points the finger at someone else.

his doesn’t make her a bad girl, it just makes her parents and family quite irresponsible and hypocritical. They know her fanbase, they could have said no. They also know she’s at the age where she needs careful guidance and they abandoned that responsibility.

No it makes her look stupid for believing this was artistic she’s 15 not 4 she’s a ***** and her career is going to go down!

The girl may be famous and a celebrity but she is still only 15 years old – where were her parents when this unfortunate and irresponsible photosession took place?

And I must say that I am more than a little surprised that Annie Leibowitz who usually is such a good photographer wanted to do these tasteless half naked photos of a 15 year old girl!

for frigs sake, are you kidding me? is this girl for real? what’s the big deal? srsly doesn’t she have people who advise her on all this stuff? I do not believe for one second that she was manipulated into anything.

ROCK ON MILEY!! This magazine tricked a 15 year old girl into this picture!! NEVER BUYING VANITY FAIR AGAIN!!!

BOB I suggest you read this before making anymore comments!

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 honestly don’t see why people are all upset about the VF photograph. Yes, she is fifteen, but the photo shows less skin than we would see of her wearing a normal, one-piece swim suit. The pose seems tasteful to me. I wouldn’t want my daughter doing it at fifteen, but after all of the photos that Miley has taken and posted of herself at this point, I would probably just be thankful the ***** put a sheet on this time.

I’m personally only offended by how she looks from the neck up in it.

I have to say, the friend pictures were with her friends and like she didnt know they were going to be posted all over the web but this is different she got paid by doing this photo. I have to say i gave up on her from this day on.

i feel bad for her, but i dont believe that wasnt fully aware of what she was doing when she took that photo. she’ll have to learn from this mistake.

she looks emaciated.. its not a good picture.

did she serously think that they would like, photoshop clothes on her?! SHE POSED FOR ANNIE! she allowed it. plus, she’s had like, 4 “mistakes”! i mean, we know nobody’s perfect, but FOUR times!?! you’d think she’d learn!

jeeeze miley!
your loosing your fans, girl.

OH MY GOD! POOR MILEY, BUT WELL, MILEY YOU SHOULD BE MUCH MORE CAREFULL, YOU WORK FOR KIDS, IN DISNEY REMEMBER?

I’M YOUR FAN’TILL THE END, BUT PLEASE BE CAREFULL :S
