A semi-nude Miley Cyrus is to appear in the June issue of Vanity Fair. Just a week after scandalous self-taken pictures of Miley hit the net, Annie Leibovitz has taken photos of the 15-year-old pop star topless draped in a satin bed sheet for a photo spread.
Miley told People.com: “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 apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
The Disney Channel supports its Hannah Montana star, saying, “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”
As for the photos Miley took herself she told Associated Press they were “silly, inappropriate shots” and she was sorry if she had disappointed anyone: “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. 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.”
