Miley Cyrus' Vanity Fair Pictures Arrive

Miley Cyrus' Vanity Fair Pictures Arrive

The Vanity Fair photo spread of Miley Cyrus has been released! As always, here are some of the interview highlights:

On Sex and the City: “It’s my favorite show! I love it! Obviously not the scenarios. But if you watch Sex and the City, like the way the friends are, the way that it’s dry and they all have distinct characters—that’s a thing we try to do on our show.”

On the infamous semi-topless shot: “No, I mean I had a big blanket on. And I thought, This looks pretty, and really natural. I think it’s really artsy. [And] it wasn’t in a skanky way.… And you can’t say no to [photographer Annie Leibovitz]. She’s so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you’re like, O.K.”

On whose career trajectory she’d like to follow: “Before, I’d say like Hilary Duff. But there can’t be a thousand Hilary Duffs. Then that doesn’t make Hilary special. And there can’t be a thousand Miley Cyruses, or that doesn’t make me special. That’s what a star is: they’re different. A celebrity is different. So, no, mostly I want to make my own path.”

On being well-adjusted to the fame and public attention: “That’s just my personality. I don’t get shaken or stirred up over anything. Which can be a problem sometimes. I’m just, like, so no emotions. I just don’t let things faze me. I’m very much like my dad. My dad’s like this.”

On being pals with paparazzi camped out of her gated home. “Sometimes there’ll be like 40. Sometimes 20, sometimes 30. Sometimes two. I’ll stop and I’ll do the picture. It’s really funny. They’ll buy our dinner and whatever. We’ve become friends.”

To see the behind-the-scenes pictures of Miley, her country superstar father Billy Ray, and momager Tish, visit VanityFair.com. You can also read the full article here.

  • postwatcher

    THE GIRL IS ONLY 15!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is all her stupid parents’ fault

    By the way, another MEDIOCRE photo session by Annie Liebovitz. Worse than those Suri photos.

    They would have gotten better shots at Sears Portrait Studio.

  • Jane

    uhhhm sluttt. that’s basically it.

  • Orange Clockwork

    Making her own path straight to rehab. You go Miley Cyrus!

  • LINA

    she is so pretty and her dad was with her love you miley

  • postwatcher

    EEEEWWWW…..BILLY RAY IS so desperate!!!! No self respecting dad would take a picture with his daughter like that.

    I still put some blame on Annie Leibovitz f*cked up VISION. Annie-Lou is a horse’s hiney.

    ANNIE LOU SUCKS!

  • LOLA

    What the hell?

    Am i the only person that thinks that’s a little too inappropriate to be posing with her dad like that? That’s gross.

    She is not a good role-model. She’s a slut.

  • rolling eyes

    Might I also add that the really Dumbass fans that were throwing the word PHOTOSHOPPED around as if they would die if wasn’t

    Can i just say you must really feel like dumbasses now… if you dont you should, Learn what photoshopped means before you use it!

    @ #6 thats the best you can do???

  • ss

    fifth??

  • SICK

    what father would pose w/ their daughter w/ her midrift showing & worse, pose w/ her where other pictures in the spread show her naked w/ a sheet covering her?sick, sick, sick… how can she say she was manipulated when her dad was obviously there.if you do it own.say you made a poor decision but don’t blame others.she also looks hideous.she tries way to hard to be sexy.her stare & pouty lip she always gives his so forced.i don’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for her.she grosses me out.what 15 year old acts that way?

  • annaversary

    Miley is a GREAT GIRL.

    People should not be making this a big deal. This was professionally done and it was NOT FULLY NAKED.

    http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2008/06/miley_slideshow200806?printable=true&currentPage=all

    She was not even “NAKED” and people need to stop using the words sluts, whore, slutty, etc on her. Definetly doesn’t suit her but instead the people calling her those names.

    miley fan and supporter4ever!

  • http://myspace zanessfan!

    In my opinion, I do not think a 15 year old should take picks like that yet.Shes to young I think

    NO OFFENCE TO HER OR HER DAD
    But everyone has an opnion

  • NICOLE

    YAY I AM FIRST

  • stephanie

    shes so ugly
    -shudders-

  • what on earth?!!!

    Leaked racy photos the first time…could have been a mistake. But three times leaked followed by a racy “official” magazine cover shoot?!!! This girl never learns…..The apology with washing of the hands and blaming the photographer trick is a cheap ploy to gain sympathy and obviously insincere.

  • Jennifer W

    i think miley made a mistake here and needs to own up for what she has done wrong.

  • oh snap!

    this is SOOOOO sad a Wh*re at 15 YEARS

  • cami

    Rolling Eyes.. agreed your funny haha ..

    You know what I hate about her is that she comes off and acts like everything isn’t such a big deal when it might actually be …

    && If the pics weren’t that bad .. then why did she apologize in the first place?

    Clearly based on this interview you can tell she loves the attention! .. Who actually becomes friends withe paparazzis? Last time i checked celebs wanted their lives to be private.. instead she embraces it because she just loves all the attlention .. it’s sickening to see how wrapped up she is in herself ..

    Stop blaming the photographer .. she’s a world renowned famous photographer .. She has an edgy vision .. so what.. Miley could’ve said no as well as her parents ..

    Oh and she will never NEVER be like hilary duff.. Hilary is actually a smart girl.. she’s got her head on her shoulders ..She on the other hand acts like she’s well grounded and innocent but guaranteed in a couple years she’ll become a completely different person ..

    You know .. i actually can’t believe that such a sophisticated magazine like VF would actually showcase a tweeny bopper star .. That in my opinion is the only mistake i think VF made on their part..

    She seriously needs to get a grip and a hold on herself.. She’s not that great .. and she acts like she is .. Her personality is over the top and she needs to tone it down .. Hannah Montana will be done and over with .. and once that happens Miley Cyrus will just become another has been like her father .

  • Marieme

    Can Billy Ray get a life already? He’s starting to remind me of another baddad, -Joe Simpson! Talk about leaching off your kid. I mean it’s fine to support her, but he is basking way too much in her fame. And how is it that he’s allowing her (or encouraging) to shed the clothes for a VF photo shoot? How creepy and dumb!

  • jj

    Is that particular photograph a little too racy for Miley? Sure. But once you look at all the photos from the Vanity Fair website, their not as bad as what people are making them out to be. Miley realized her mistake and will come out of this fine. By the way #8, is your life really that pathetic that you have to use a term like that for a 15 year old?

  • :)

    argh wtf is up with you people ?
    saying she needs to grow up.
    she is growing up. shes only 15.
    get this in your head. the naked picture in this photoshoot was cause of the photographer. so why dont you go telling her off instead of insisting mileys a slut & shes doin this constantly & she doesnt care wat her fans think and all this crap. gosh you people say she needs to grow up but yous really needa do some growing up. just leave her alone . you nasty fuckwits (:

  • Amy

    Ew. Why is she posing with her FATHER like THAT??? That’s not the result of ignorance from a 15 year old, but that lack of common sense from both the father and the daughter!

  • .

    #27.
    i dont mean to sound rude but why dont you ew yourself.
    she didnt choose the poses that she does with her father.
    blame it on the photographer .
    :)

  • Amy

    Yes, she actually did have a choice., She could’ve said “NO”.

  • cami

    “realized her mistake” are you serious!

    you think people would finally realize their mistakes after they made the mistake the first time! .. She on the other hand has made several mistakes all relating to the same things .. Clearly she hasn’t learned her mistake ..Nor do i think she ever will! ..

    You just watch more pics will turn up .. give it another week or 2 .. then we’ll see if she’s finally “learned” ..

    The only thing she needs to be learning is how to act like her age ..

  • trish

    what a 15 take picture shirtless and with a blanket?

  • cami

    P.S the photographer .. can’t make anyone do anything they don’t want to ..

    if Billy ray and Miley didn’t want to do certain poses a simple 2 letter word could’ve come out of their mouths..

    OHHHHH but i forgot .. 15 year olds don’t have the brain capacity to say a simple word like no .. sorry my bad

  • http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=334683881 SUCK miley’s ballss :]

    MILEY IS A FUCKINGG WEIRD HOE ! MTHRFCKN SHIT FACEE !

  • marla

    Geez, why are you guys blaming the photographer?!?!
    Miley has a CHOICE!!!! Her parents and her whole family has a CHOICE whether or not they want to go do the photoshoot…
    Is it that hard to day NO now??? Yeah, she only 15 but her parents should know better and could’ve said no to the photoshoot…
    Miley says that the photoshoot was “artsy” but why blame the photographer after the photos were released?? so pathetic… stop making excuses and insist that you want to learn from your mistakes… coz clearly you haven’t learned anything at all…

  • http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=334683881 SUCK miley’s ballss :]

    MILEY IS A FCKNG WEIRD HOE ! MTHRFCKN.

  • cami

    Nicely said Marla =)

  • http://www.jamieinsider.com 007

    Here I’ll say this. Her ONLY respectable work was Hannah Montanah (JUST the TV Show). She is probably the worst role model any teenager or kid could have. She thinks she can just neutralize a series of wrongdoings by apologizing. Yes she’s human but she’s also a celebrity. She makes big money. She has a lot of responsibility to make sure kids don’t do something stupid to screw their lives over just because she did.

  • http://fatalfashionattraction.blogspot.com/ danz

    I quite like the photo actually, it looks like a beautiful painting. I can see how she thought it looked natural and artistic. However, I agree that it is inappropriate, especially in this day, for a 15 year old to pose like this.

  • -

    whatever miley.

  • veto

    IF she is doing anything wrong is her parent fault not her. Also what 15teen year old acts like that? . . . The majority just not in front of the parents or the media.
    Also don’t you think name calling will only drive her more into becoming what most of you people are calling her slut and so on . . . like poor Britney….You expecting perfection out of famous people. They are just people like you and me.
    The real stupid people are the once that believe they are so important that they must be so perfect and never make mistakes.
    If anything the real stupid people is us for putting to much attention to a 15year old and her life.
    Also don’t give me this bull that she is a role model your children role model should not be a 15year old actress it should be the parents.
    Another thing if you boycott her because of her new persona your and idiot for getting your child so involved on a show in the first place . . . take him /her to the part instead of making them so obsessed with watching t.v that you have to explain to them that this girl they believe they know so well from the t.v is no longer suitable for them.

  • lovethekid

    …so billy ray is kinda good looking. haha

    miley was a good role model a year ago, but she is changing for the worse. sooner or later she will surpass vanessa hudgens [who i am a fan of, but you can't forget what she did]

  • JL

    This whole thing is disturbing. She marketing herself as wholesome, but that is not what I have seen, not even publicly.

    Young girls are just too sexualized these days, like the 14 yr old from Gossip Girl on the NY Mag cover. Shame on Annie L. Ultimately, though, the blame lies on the parents allowing their kids to be pimped out for a quick buck and fame.

  • ——

    You know what lovethekid, at least Vanessa had the decency to apologize, take full responsibility for her actions and not commit the same mistake over and over again. But with Miley…..she obviously never learns.

  • eddie jones

    child exploitation at it’s finest. It’s not normal for 15 yr old girls to be posing half naked for magazines, this is something for pedophiles.

    Where is the relvance of a half naked 15 yr old to a magazine? What’s vanity fair trying to say with a half naked 15 year old?

  • dan

    she’s an ugly horse

  • Terumi

    what is up with all of you people talking about realizing your mistake after the first time??? what have you never made a mistake more than once?…seriously miley is human and that means that you dont always learn things the first time or you dont always make the best desicions…..seriously all you people hating on miley its just pathetic and it shows what kind of people you are…and im not talking about just hating on miley im talking about just being so rude to someone for making a mistake…how would you like it if THOUSANDS of people were being rude or hateful to you for making a mistake?….but yea anyways as i was saying it should what kind of person you are because even though i may not like certain people but i also dont post rude hateful comments about them or talk trash to them…..anyways my point is that people make mistakes and deserve to get forgiven….especially when its something as small as this…yes she is a rolemodel to lots of people but my mom is a rolemodel to me and yet she still makes mistakes and is reminded of those mistakes everyday…..and i dont care because i know my mom(and miley) is a great person and shouldnt be judged or not be a rolemodel just because she made mistakes…..the best of rolemodels make mistakes….but anyways i love miley she is a great and beautiful person and i wish her the best of luck in her life and in her career!!

  • lisa

    Well, isn’t she TRASHY! creepy Dad as well…gross!

  • postwatcher

    ROFL!!!!!
    Madonna is going to be pissed! This Miley controversy is going to TOTALLY OVERSHADOW Madonna’s cover story…HA HA HA.

    CRY MADONNA CRY!

  • me

    to #43 how do you know if vanessa did it again or not? she could be taking naked pictures all the time…just because they arent being leaked to the media doesnt mean shes not doing it…and btw miley did apologize

  • abby

    There’s something mildly disturbing about her and her dad posing that way together. Actually, the whole thing is disturbing. And this “didn’t have a choice” thing is ridiculous. Its extremely easy to say no, and nobodys going to argue with Miley Cyrus.

  • Allie

    I liked it.. I think that people are miss taking it. Vanity fair is all about Art… She looks like the new MOna lisa… Luv yah gyal.. Work it out.. show em..
