Controversies> Miley Cyrus Controversy 2008
In April 2008 the world media went into a frenzy when the teenage star
of Disney's popular Hannah Montana series Miley Cyrus was photographed
partly nude for the Vanity Fair magazine.
The reality of the story was that the young teenager simply bared
her back for the cameras.
Miley Cyrus and her country singer father Billy Ray Cyrus were
photographed the famous photographer Annie Leibovitz for the Vanity
Fair magazine. The 15 year old teenage girl was accompanied by
her father throughout the whole photo shoot.
In behind the scenes photos from Vanity Fair, the magazine shows
that it was quite the family affair, unlike the sordid affair
that the media made it out to be. Pictures show Miley Cyrus and
her father together, along with the youngest daughter of Billy
Ray Cyrus, 8 year old Noah Cyrus and her mom Tish on set in Calabasas,
With the success of Hannah Montana the young singer and actress
has become a meal ticket for the paparazzi, with her every move
being scrutinized by the gossip media.
The Vanity Fair magazine described the controversial photo of
the Hannah Montana star as a "topless but demure portrait".
When asked about why she took the photo, Miley Cyrus said "I
think its really artsy. It wasnt in a skanky way.
And you cant say no to Annie (Leibovitz). Shes so
cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and youre like, O.K."
Miley Cyrus later said "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."
After the controversy that the media created because of the partly
nude photos of Miley Cyrus, the photographer Annie Leibovitz said
"I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted.
The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little
makeup, and I think it is very beautiful."
