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.”

    oh my gosh you guys are really really harsh. Of couse Miley should take some blame in this, and not try and shift it on others, but you have to see that she did apologize and i’m sure she’s truly sorry. She’s only 15 years old and one of the hottest stars being watched at all times. 15 year old girls do do things like take provocative photos and usually nothing more happens, but unfortunatly for her they get out there and people criticize her like crazy which probably does not do much for her self esteem. Please just lay off for like, 2 seconds and it would make this load a lot lighter on her.

    Sorry for my spelling too, it’s quite hard typing in the dark ;)

    Really, she knew she didn’t have a top on.
    so i don’t care if it was sopose to be artistic.
    she knew what was going on.
    and that to me isn’t a pretty picture, or artistic.
    i find it really unattractive.

    and seriously shes 15.
    and topless?
    she’s going down from here.

    wait a minute. NO ONE HELD A GUN TO HER HEAD. TO SAY TAKE THESE PICTURES. NO ONE. SHE IS NOT INNOCENT. 15 is still very responisable. Why will make you guys think she is not innocent. when she poses naked on playboy, or Victoria Secret. Or when she does a movie with no clothes on. Come on give me a break people. She is not innocent, she never was and never will. If I was the president of Disney she would be fired. 1x okay, 2x pushing it 3x what on god’s green earth are you doing now. 4x your fired.

    ohmygoodness.

    she keeps saying, oh im sorry ill learn from my mistakes im not perfect.. this is what scandal number 3??

    :]]]]] Says:

    um i just realized how idiotic i sounded in my other comments.

    yeah of course she knew hat she was doing but thats her decision and i shouldnt be judging her.

    she is very talneted[getting better at acting+singing]
    and obviosly is trying to promote herself.
    i dont agree with posing like that for a 15 year old but its her decesion. we should judge her based on her talent not this.

    and no one asked her to be a role model. shes just a teen doing what she loves so if people dont want to look up to her they shouldnt then.

    im not saying i do.

    OKAY my opinion

    Poor Miley?
    That’s bull.
    She shouldn’t have done that! She’s 15! She should have put her foor down and said no. OH WAIT. No. She seems to like to be naked, just go on photobucket and you can see her and her BFF Mandy is bras and underwear.
    Her parent’s shouldn’t have left. Her GRANDMOTHER should have said something!

    Oh Dios lo ultimo que podia salir esta jeva.
    Ella se parece a la muchacha de la pelicula The Ring.
    Ella es fea de verdad pobrecita de ella y los que la siguen.
    No se lo que penso Nick cuando se petio en amores con ella gracias a Dios que puso reaccionar a tiempo. Miley que Dios te acompañe para que no caigas como Britney.

    She is so stupid and so naive how is this an artistic photo15 year old child holding a sheet she knew exactly what she was doing. She’s a ***** and I don’t feel bad for her this is like 4th time she pulled this stunt already. People are stupid if their buying into her crap.

    good to hear she finally learnt a lesson.

    it IS artistic, though, compared to all the racy photos she had revealed by herself.

    I support her 10000000% and those pictures were a mistake. It’s good for her to know she still has fans who support her through everything

    007 Says:

    I think this is all just a stupid act to get more attention. She knew exactly what she was getting herself into. She’s like the next Paris Hilton with borderline acting talent. Quite ironic how she had the last shot when her parents left.

    A mother of a 14 year old Says:

    OK, Vanity Fair and Annie L. should not have been taking that kind of photo without the parents being in the room.

    My daughter has done modeling/acting and they make darn sure the parent is there, even though my daughter has not ever been asked to take photos like that..EVER!

    It is manditory for Guardians to be present. (not a grandma) The actual guardian, as in Miley’s Parents!!

    So for all of you saying she wasn’t manipulated, you are very wrong!! I am not a Miley fan, but in this particular case, she was taken advantage of. Just check the quote by the author of the story…he was quoting Miley.. “That’s what she wanted me to do, and you don’t say no to Annie”

    “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 ****** way.””

    Protect your children, because that is what they are STILL CHILDREN!!

    msraq Says:

    what a ****! lol

    stop taking raunchy photos of yourself (previous) if you don’t want them leaked… and now, you’re blaming the photog’s? hah…

    i see it now. trying to be the next britney (in her prime)… HONEY, sorry but you need to tame yourself. you won’t be.

    Laughable Says:

    lol, good luck explaining this to a kid:

    “mommy, is it true Miley Cyrus took a picture naked?”

    “well, yes, but it wasn’t exactly on purpose”

    “oh…did her clothes fall off?”

    “…no”

    “did someone else take them off?”

    “…no, she took them off, but she didn’t want to”

    “so then why didn’t she just say that!?”

    “…”

    nicole Says:

    where the hell are her parents?
    one thing after another with her..half naked pictures being leaked all over and now this? she needs to have responsible adults to help lead her in the proper path. I blame the parents.

    A mother of a 14 year old Says:

    Posting to comments about Miley and her young fans and their Mothers..

    Since when do you let your children see barely clothed persons in a mag?? You are just as bad if you allow your young children to be exposed to this almost naked crap.

    If you actually have that dialogue with your child, then you are in the same boat as Miley’s parents. BETTER SWIM!!!
