It's not surprising considering all the "leaked" myspace pictures. She's hardly Little Miss Innocent, she just likes to pretend to be since she has a young fan base.

I wish they would stop trying to sex her up. She's really cute and talented but she's got too much pressure on her to be an adult. Personally I think she looks sickly in these pics. They remind me of the pic of MaryKate Olsen right before she went to rehab.

The girl is only 15 and has a show on the Disney Channel so I think it's out of line that they had these photos taken.

The burden of being a role model is that you sometimes have to err on the side of caution. I make decisions with my business to avoid certain things that might be misinterpreted in a way that could offend people. I don't just put stuff out there without thinking this through, and my biz isn't a multi million dollar media empire with teams of handlers like Miley's business.Hard to imagine at any time during this shoot she or her parents/handlers thought that this would be cool for tweens or Disney. It's not horribly offensive, just poor judgment for someone who collects millions of dollars for claiming to be the image of innocent wholesomeness. She's been pushing the envelope for awhile, with the vampy dresses at awards shows, risque pictures on the internet, so I believe this was a deliberate choice.

heh...I wasn't implying anything regarding Miley's personal appearance (I generally don't pay much attention to her, I'm in my 30's, outside her demographic, and I've no children who might be fans). I'm referring solely to the image itself and the image concept. I don't think it was ever meant to be sexual, but I can see how it can be viewed that way. Still think it would be better saved for an older actress/singer/model than one who is 15. Given how I'm personally interprating the image, rather...Wuthering Heights...yes, that and the Dutch paintings I'm thinking of and can't bring the titles to mind right now, an older woman would bring out the nuances of the image far better than a teen.

historymystery, I agree with you. Miley is not sexy in any way. In fact, I think she is a strange looking little girl, but I digress. However, it is clear she and the marketing team responsible for making her will do anything for publicity. The MySpace photos were racier, and no matter how much some people want to believe her Disney image, she is, in fact, not so innocent or pure. The pics with her dad are a bit strange. Perhaps this would have come across much better if she were 18 or older, but then again these Disney-made "icons" do have expiration dates!

This little chick always has a headline...good or bad. In my opinion she's starting to look like bad role models for young girls and simply embarassing the Disney corporation.

In my opinion, it's a dramatic looking photgraph, does not, from my point of view, fall under 'sexy'..but rather it has a bit of a Rembrant or Vermeer quality to the image. I can actually see it as an oil painting.I can see why many people are upset and bothered by it. Her face is very clearly the face of a 15 year old, and in North America, there has always been a rather fine line between art and porn, this image can be viewed either way, and given her age, yes, that makes the porn side of the line beyond creepy. I would personally prefer it if this particular idea had been resevered for an older actress/singer or if Miley and her family chose to wait until she was of age to do something like this.That said, age of subject aside, it's a haunting image and quite lovely.

THE 15yr olds who are runway models are faceless NOBODYS! No one knows who they are or care who they are. They are girls who starve themselves so they can be walking clothes hangers on the cat walk. Sad but true.. As far as Miley goes...she is on a Disney show that shows her as the epitome of innocence and being in a good family. MANY MANY girls look up to her. TRUE STORY--my 5 yr old just walked up and saw the photo of Miley and said "Look there's Hanna Montana". I said, how do you know that's Hanna Montana? She said. "Because it is her, but she looks like a bad girl and she looks really sad, why does she look like that"? My daughter said this with real concern in her eyes...We forget how the little child's mind works. To us these photos are just another day in the life of a Hollywood celeb, but to the little people who make these stars who they are, it means something totally different. A friend of mine had a husband who went to those gross web sites..the ones like Rotten .com. She said at first he was shocked and found the images disturbing, but after watching them for a while it changed something in him where he became numb to it. She ended up divorcing him because she said he had changed all together inside. How do we know that small children seeing their idols appearing nude, and scantily dressed with boys touching them (on stomach) and getting pregnant (JSpears), is going to make them numb against things that should disturb them. Then as a country where will we be?

What is the big deal with the photos? 14-year-olds have always walked high fashion runways and posed for provocative ad campaigns. If this occurred in any other country, it wouldn't be a big deal. Americans, however, constantly feel the need to blow things out of proportion and make stories out of nothing. Furthermore, I would be honored if my daughter had been photographed by such a living legend. I think it's time the American media stop focusing on such bullshit stories and focus on more important issues...the war perhaps??

Nail hit on head JAG! Whether or not they are for art... they are inappropriate. I esp love the "Well there are other people doing it" argument. Yes there are 15 year old models and if they were photographed the same way I'd feel just as strongly. My OP has nothing to do with Miley's image or role moodels status but I think parents that allow "superstars" to be their child's role model are stupid. It's an issue of decorum...these images put me in the mind of photographs taken of children in the child sex slave trade. Why would you want to have your children look like that. I would be less shocked if she was 17. These pics are a pedophile's dream good job...Pimpy Ray

Holy Lolita!The timeless words of Dan Aykroyd stick in my mind. "Miley, you ignorant slut."She was obviously conscious throughout the shoot, so stop blaming the amazing Annie.

Miley is not what I would call "pretty" to begin with. Her teeth/gums are in need of something, I don't know what, and her voice always sounds so strained and in need of rest. Billy Ray was a one hit wonder with his "Achy Breaky heart" days, then he was a long haired joke when he tried to be a clothes designer when his singing career faded. He found a niche with Miley when he started pimping her out a few years ago and now it's taken off big time and he couldn't be happier. He went with the flow and thought it would make him more money with the Vanity Fair shoot, he really didn't care about how it looked or what her younger fans thought about it.
