Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz is speaking out about her controversial, semi-topless Miley Cyrus photos she shot for Vanity Fair.

“I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted," she said in a statement. "Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together, and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it.

"The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful.”

The 15-year-old issued a statement saying she was "embarrassed" over the photos and apologized to her fans.

The Disney Channel claims the magazine "manipulated" her, but a Vanity Fair rep says, "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."

that photo is creepy

it's not downright slutty, but there is definitely a sexual element to it, and thats really not right.

I guess Disney doesn't care if any of their child stars get pregnant. (yes, Ms.Spears, I'm talkin' 'bout you!)

Someone posted this comment on the ABC News site, some people are having some "issues" with those pictures too.

The photo of this girl bare-back in a sheet is "artsy". The photo I have a problem with is the incestuous display of her and her father. Good grief! What were they thinking? The man is wearing a wife-beater and has his daughter spralled across his crotch. Totally inappropriate at ANY age.

this is correct

bare- back
or

backless

I could post quite a few pictures of this girl in backless dresses, outfits

it really is not topless

if anyone bought a "topless magazine" and got a bunch of pictures like that one they would demand a refund

this person is silly

the whole "Hannah/Miley" phenomena is based on provocative outfits and poses

again, anyone could post dozens of pictures of her at many ages dressed in "sexy" outfits

i don't find this photo sexual in any way, probably because 15 year old girls don't do it for me.

to me the fact that we fawn over every move that a 15 year old girl does is much more disturbing than a backless, semi-artsy crap photo.

I'm sure they knew exactly what kind of reaction they would get by doing this photo shoot. Did they think they needed more publicity? Are the masses not talking enough about her this week?

That being said, I have to say that's a VERY unflattering picture of the poor girl. She looks like death warmed over.

Agreed.

Topless? Nope.

And the girl's name is Miley Cyrus, not Hannah Montana. Sorry, but that bugs me a little bit in the thread title.

And, yes, this is tame and not a big deal at all.

And, yes, that is an unflattering picture of her.

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.

I don't give a fuck
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.
