Maybe you really can't have the best of both worlds if you're a teen starlet, no matter what the Hannah Montana song says. Two sets of photos emerged in the last several days showing Miley Cyrus in poses at odds with the G-rated image that has made the 15-year-old a heroine of tween girls, a favorite of their parents and a $1 billion-a-year earner for the Walt Disney Co. One set, some candid snapshots with Miley cuddling up to her boyfriend and flashing a green bra, were leaked onto the Internet. The other, a collection of posed come-hither shots by photographer Annie Leibovitz, were taken under the consenting eyes of parents, handlers and editors at Vanity Fair magazine.

Were the half-nude pictures of 15-year-old Miley Cyrus in Vanity Fair inappropriate?

So that's the picture I keep hearing about. She's really rather plain looking, isn't she.

The pics probably aren't appropriate for her audience, but she's 15 for crying out loud. People need to stop blaming her and blame her parents, her people and the photographer and magazine for allowing it to happen.

If she was att all atractive, they would be, but she's not, so i see no problems.

Scantily clad photos of attractive women are inappropriate, while scantily clad photos of plain women are ok? What kind of logic is that? If anything, it should be the other way around.

I think her handlers were naive to allow her to pose in that way.

I'm sure they thought that it would project some kind of image that would allow her to progress to a more mature role over time but the photographer is obviously going to go for maximum instant impact.

She got pwned.

I don't see too many people blaming her TBH.

If anything I see this as a high profile example of how easy it is for young girls to be manipulated by the media with or without consent from their advisors.

All you get to see is the one image. You don't see how it was set up or what the girl thought the shot was trying to convey, you just see what the photographer captured.

I think they are inappropriate. The one with her father gives off a creepy vibe too. I don't blame Miley herself but the photographer, her parents and her agent.

I agree with the father/daughter shot. I love my pops to death but jeez.

I found her comment on the photo interesting: "really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way. And you can't say no to Annie."

She makes it seem like she didn't have a choice in the matter or something.

Eh, I read that more along the lines of "I can't say no to free chocolate."
Anybody know what the deal is with the "unofficial" scandalous photos that the article mentions? Something about her flashing her boyfriend or something.

I think the Leibowitz shot is fine. She doesn't look overly sexy - she looks more like a kid to me.
It certainly could have been done in a very sexualized way, but as is, I think the shot actually shows off her innocence more than anything else.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 5/2/08 - 9:31:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have to say though that is generally not a very flattering picture of her, ( as in not to do with the pose). I find it a bit weird, she's only fifteen. It's not sexy or anything though so it could be a lot worse.

Ugh, you know.
I don't really think they're that racy from what I've seen, but it's ridiculous listening to people rambling over the photos not on principle, but because she's "ugly".
It wouldn't make it any less disturbing taking photos of an underaged pretty girl straddling a piece of furniture than an underaged plain girl straddling a piece of furniture.
It's one thing to be offended by it because you believe she's being exploited or whatever, but quite the other when you make a double standard like that.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 5/3/08 - 7:41:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
actually no...but it is a bit promiscuous trollopty....
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 5/3/08 - 10:32:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
i believe th pics r inappropreate. she's 15 4 Gods sake. she dosent need 2 b posing topless. shes a minor.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 5/3/08 - 10:50:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, no, that's just wrong.
She's 15 for goodness sake!
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/4/08 - 1:23:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so because I truly can't see anything sexual in the photo. Perhaps people projecting their own sexual ideas onto 15 year old girls is a problem. If she were fully clothed but in a very sexual pose truly meant to provoke sexual thoughts in other people - sure, I would consider that inappropriate. The lack of clothes isn't what immediately makes a photo THAT sort of photo.

Basically, I think that photo is a beautiful photo, but not a very sexual one.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/4/08 - 1:25:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
By the way...I'm only speaking of the photo that is shown with the question. I haven't seen the other photos from the shoot or the green bra ones. I can't give an opinion on those.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/4/08 - 5:55:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
The picture shown here is the only one I've seen, if I had a daughter an oil painting in that style would be welcome in my living room, as for the people complaining I believe most of them are backward and they would burn the "birth of Venus" by Botticelli (1444-1510). I'm also happy we have these complainers, they make me feel good, intelligent and happy not being as stupid as I think they are.
A picture of me taken by a professional photographer when I was 2 or 3 years old laying naked butt up on a sheep skin would now get my parents in jail as dangerous incestuous pedophile deviants. mind boggles.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/4/08 - 6:37:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just look at that provocative stare!
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/4/08 - 6:40:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nothing wrong with it! I don't understand what all the hubbub is about. I've seen her in a bikini -- shows a lot more of her. Big deal!
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/5/08 - 9:19:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't get what the big f*cking deal is. The picture is not 'sexy' or 'provocative', the only thing that makes it so is the human mind, everyone complaining about are probably just scared or insecure about their own sexuality.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/5/08 - 4:44:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think the pictures themselves aren't a big deal. But I hate how they're all saying it's totally natural. She looks like she's dead or dying. Her face is really pale and she has bright red lipstick.

As for the unofficial photo scandal she was pulling down her shirt to show her bra and then there was one where she was in her bra and panties draped over her boyfriend. She's 15. Leave her alone and let her have a life.
6 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/5/08 - 9:51:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
She and her parents OKed the photo; can't blame the photographer for releasing it without permission. As for the one with the boyfriend... she's in the public eye. Guess she needs to be more careful about what she's doing around other people.

Lawl promiscuous trollop
