I had a feeling that she was toooo good to be true.

Hello, FYM. Nice to meet you, anyway.

nice to meet you, too

you came off just fine.

there should be no wrong opinions in here

I expect some people will think different from me

this is a forum where people state what they think

it is more interesting if people tell us why they think the way they do

and much less interesting went some people resort to attacking each other

again, welcome

and thanks for letting us know what you think

You bet your ass I think different from you and I'll tell you why.

I bought the tickets for my 5 & 9 year old granddaughters to go see the Hannah Montana 3D concert. Do you think for one moment I want my 9 year old to tell me in 5 years or even less possibly.. why she posted a pic like this of herself on MySpace or where ever.
I don't give a fuck how artistic it appears it is totally sexual and I can't believe Annie Lebowitz did this.
This type of photo may not "do for me" for alot of guys, but rest assured it does it to a great deal of men who get off on shit like this. The phedophiles out there are creaming in their jeans that a whole slew of little girls will be able to pose for the camera now that Hannah has done it.
There are big problems with this pic and Annie L will have a lot to answer for.
If you can't tell, I am livid.
It's not even Miley's fault. She got sucked in.. and no one protected her.
Everyone around her, failed her, in this case.

and welcome GirlsAloudFan.. you jumped right into it.

And all this time you never realized that she was being marketed in "sexy" outfits and acting in proactive ways, beyond what one would expect from typical girls?


I think it is a stupid picture.

And I think the "pedos" are busy with other pictures.








this outfit and shoes make her look much older and dare I say "sexy"


I really don't know much about this young girl and I do not want to waste any time searching for more pictures

I did see one where she was on stage in a backless dress well above her knee that showed a lot more skin than that picture

What can you tell your daughters?

Just show them Miley's very sincere unequivocally apology.

What more can anyone want?
It is a great lesson for all young girls to be very careful of anyone that has a camera and wants to take pictures.

Just say no.

It may also keep them from getting thrown off American Idol or out of some pageant in the future.

15 is utterly wrong, but if she's 16 it's alright.

I must be a really bad parent because I don't have any problem at all with the photograph.

I first read this thread today at school and I asked my students 9th and 10th graders--what they thought of the photo. The fact that I felt a little weird showing it to them told me something. . .their reaction told me more. They all felt it was inappropriate.

Obviously there's a lot of "sexy is in the eye of the beholder" going on in this discussion. Some people see an underage sexpot, others see an artistic and tasteful photo. So I can see how it's hard for people to understand how others can NOT see what they see.

But I think there a couple of fairly objective questions that can be asked:

Does she look 15 in the photo?

I would say no, she looks older.

Second, how old are Miley's typical fans? I'd argue they are definitely NOT 15. . .they're much younger. While such a photo might not be a "problem" for 15 years olds (though that too is debateable) it would be a probelm for 8-10 year olds to see such a photo and decide to emulate.

To me the fact that you've got a younger role model for still younger kids, suggests that such a photo is unwise.

On a more subjective note, I do think the photo is inappropriate and does suggest sexuality. I think it was a poor decision for the family to sign off on it. I mean sure Liebovitz thinks it's artistic and in good taste but nudes can also be done artistically and in good taste without suggesting sexuality per se, and are we about to suggest that a completely nude photo of Miley Cyrus would be acceptable as long as it was artistic and in good taste was not "overtly" sexual?

Her parents said they left before that one was taken to pick up their 8 year old son from school, leaving a grandparent and a teacher with her. I don't understand why they didn't see and approve all of the photos, if they didn't.

I think Annie Leibowitz knew exactly what she was doing. I think a natural portrait of a 15 year old, and of Miley, is the one on the cover of People this week-not that VF pic. She can be artistic all she wants and certainly as a photographer that's her job, but Miley is still a 15 year old girl and a role model in some cases for young girls. I guess I'm totally out of touch with 15 year olds but for me that VF pic is not "very little makeup". Yes she's pale but she looks like she has dark lipstick and smoky eyes. She does seem to wear quite a bit of makeup on a regular basis, but I imagine most kids in show business do-especially in photos Still doesn't look "natural" to me, that whole picture.

I don't like this picture. She looks like a character out of a zombie movie. Horrible make-up. At the same time she has this lolita look that caters to possible pedophiles. Anyone saying there isn't a sexual undertone to this is blind IMO. I don't think this cover is/was a very good idea.

To be honest I haven't seen that much of her since she's not someone I would typically look out for. I've only seen parts of her show once when I was keeping my granddaughters.

and your are right in regards to people wanting to take pictures etc. The outrage I feel goes more towards the exploitation of her and other young people rather than the photo by itself.

Is it really exploitation? It is publicity, the type that can make it so much easier to break out of that child star niche when she turns 18. The backpeddling seems to be protecting the economic interest today that could be threatened by unwarranted criticism.

The portrait has an erotic component to it but it is not erotica and certainly not pornography. The style makes judging age tricky, but she isn't a 12 year old. In this society as in every society girls become sexualised when they go through puberty, just going by this picture she could just as easily be 19.

That's the point. What's ultimately more important, breaking out of the child star niche or protecting certain things for and about your child? That's the question for her parents to decide, while she is still a minor. Ask Britney's parents if they would do anything differently, or Lindsay's. On the other hand maybe they're not the best examples.

She has more than enough money already to lead a comfortable life, and so do her parents. It's a sad statement that young girls have to become sexualized at an early age in Hollywood and the music industry in order to have successful careers. Hopefully some can do so without succumbing.

At fifteen she does need protection, but she isn't a child. A fifteen year old sleeps with their boyfriend or girlfriend - are we to take that as innocence shattering material or view it as completely normal (I opt for the latter). There is the role model aspect, but if a young girl is getting exploited the burden will rest on the abuser, not the victim or the society at large (in general terms).

Theres this weird vibe that growing up isn't a process, that somehow people are innocent right up until they are "of age" whenever that's supposed to be. I think that the picture is fine, it isn't presenting her as a child and it isn't an indictment of society sexualising children.

I find pictures of twenty year olds wearing pajamas with teddy bears pretending to be innocent far more creepy than this photo. Sexualising what young girls are is more disturbing to me than a teenage girl taking on a grown up sexuality.
