Miley Cyrus Apologizes For Photos

Oh My, Miley's Sorry For Her Scandalous Photos

It seemed Hannah Montana wasn't Miley Cyrus's only alter ego when scandalous photos of the teen recently surfaced on the Internet.

The suggestive pictures captured Disney's darling laying on her boyfriend's lap and exposing her bra. They were enough to break any father's achy heart.

And, just when it looked like wholesome Miley had gone Lohan, the 15-year-old publically apologized. To see what she said,

.

According to People, she said:

"The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. 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. I never intended for any of this to happen and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone."

In addition to the those snapshots, Miley is also concerned about the photographs taken by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, in which the supposedly clothed star appears topless.

She said:

"My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with Annie [Leibovitz]. 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."

In response to the pictures, Miley's employer, The Disney Channel said:

Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.

On the contrary, Beth Kseniak of Vanity Fair told The New York Times:

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.

Is this a publicity stunt or a photo shoot gone wrong?

Yawn, I am sorry but this whole thing is pathetically hypocritical. Most pop culture sexualises teens to the point of insanity, then screams and shouts when one of them actually bothers to admit they're that way anyway. So what..its OKAY if one of them gets preggers and has babies before most of us entered University but this flips people out? This kind of thing would be far less of a problem if we did not consistently try to force kids to grow up early and hold them to insane standards of maturity and glamour. Its a two-faced world.

Here is a girl who is in the public eye and is obviously being exploited to sell whatever is that needs to be sold. She is in a completely different world than ours. She made a mistake. She is owning up to it. It is unfortunate but there are a lot of young ladies out there who are doing the excact same thing. After all is said and done, my child will never even see the VF pics. Her image is still untarnished in my child's eyes. It will remain so as long as I keep tabs on what goes on in her life. It is my resposibilty.

I don't believe that she is sorry or embarrassed. Unless she is a complete idiot and didn't realize what she was doing when she was taking half naked pictures of herself and putting them out there for everyone to see.

Why would anyone be upset about this? Every other 15 year old girl in America with a msypace page has taken pictures like that, or worse...the only difference is that Miley has a famous photographer to take the pictures for her. Oh no! A teenage girl showing her back! I think it's worse that she feels she needs to apologize for that.

annie leibovitz has lost site of reality. for her to think a 15 year old child, wrapped up in a bed sheet, with tousled hair and a similar facial expression is ART is wack period.

yes, but shame on parents for letting their kids idolize people who are just going to screw up.. having miley be your 8 year olds dream isn't a fair expectation, nor is it realistic. i get what your saying, but i just think people need to see that she is 15, and WILL make mistakes. if your 8 year old is grieving like she lost her best friend, maybe she needs to have an actual best friend.

I am so sad to see the latest Miley photos. My little girl (she is 8) LOVES Miley. She wants to sing like Miley and dress like her. She looks to Miley as a friend. Now she is heart broken. She doesn't want to grow up and be like her at all. She is acting as if she lost her best friend. I don't think Miley realizes how much of an impact she has on her fans. Yes she is growing up ans she has a lot of responsiblity because she is in the public eye, but because of that she needs to be a lot more concious of the things that she does. Shame on her PARENTS for not nipping the whole thing in the bud before all these photos were taken.

liketysplit, roxtarchic, snowbunny, Briandiesel, yadiet, FashionisForever, j2e1n9, Casasailer, Glowingmoon, Thank God I thought I was the only one in America who was asking myself what is the big deal. The photos are beautiful all she is showing is her back. Come on how many 12-4 year olds do you know that read Vanity Fair, if the media did not turn this into a big deal these kids would not even know about it. Even the so called risque photos of her and her boyfriend I thought so what it is not like she was giving him a blow job she was just laying on him. Although she should have known better than to put it on her myspace page hasn't she ever herd of Vanessa Hudgens. She is a young girl and young girls want to feel and look sexy (every woman on this site was 15 once and don' tell me you did not want to look and feel grown up and beautiful at 15) as long as she is doing it in a respectable way (to me these photos are very respectable it is Vanity Fair after all not Playboy) their is nothing wrong with that. I'm so sick of people making girls feel ashamed of becoming women and realizing they are sexual creatures. I would rather have it be something gradual than overnight like Christian Aguliera's "look at me I'm dirrrty and sexy" which is not sexy at all.

i don't see how this could be considered a publicity stunt.. that's actually a long shot IMO.. i think this show how far from reality Vanity Fair is (and any other magazine) if they believe portraying pictures of a topless 15 year old is appropriate. second to blame are the parents IF they were present, or knew that this would be the outcome. i honestly wouldn't be surprised if this turned out different than what they expected.. i really don't see them being supportive of this, considering how strict they are with her.. this is EXACTLY what happened to britney, and lindsey.. the media creates the situation more times than not.. it's unfortunate.

I'm with Snowbunny. Don't blame her because she takes 'racy' photoshoots at 15, blame the people and industry that are more than happy to make her look older than 15.

Actually, I think the photos are beautiful. Miley has taken MUCH racier (practically vulgar) photos on her own. Those are on the net, too.

It is her back. She would be just as covered in a bathing suit. I think this is perfect publicity. I love VF and I don't think the pictures are distasteful.
