Oops! She did it again. There's more controversy surrounding Miley Cyrus. And this time, it involves a Miley Cyrus topless picture. According to The New York Times, Miley Cyrus is embarrassed, and apologizing to fans over a topless picture of the 15-year-old Disney star, covered only by a sheet, that was published in Vanity Fair magazine. The photo was taken by Annie Liebovitz for the magazine, and Miley's parents were on hand for the shoot, but now Miley is trying to do "damage control" (or drum up extra publicity), claiming the pictures did not turn out as expected.
In the Vanity Fair article, written by Bruce Handy, Miley is quoted saying this about the topless photo:
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. I think it's really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way.
However, in her statement about the published photo is Miley had this to say about the Vanity Fair shoot:
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. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.
Vanity Fair spokeswoman Beth Kseniak, had this to response:
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.
Oh Miley... No one believes for a second that you're the littlest bit innocent. And if you weren't comfortable with the shoot, how come you're all smiles in these behind the scenes shots?
