The really sick thing about this to me, is that the photographer taking shots of Miley that day, was a female. All these magazines and celebrity statements, etc., try to claim that they support female empowerment, and are all about women moving forward in the future. And then you get some creepy old bitch trying to manipulate a fifteen year old girl into taking her clothes off for magazine photos? I’m glad that Miley has seen the “error of her ways” but what about the adults in the room at the time? Billy Ray Cyrus, according to recent statements, along with Miley‘s mother, were not actually in the studio at the time. Would Billy Ray have allowed some money hungry old bat take naked pictures of his daughter had he been there? From InTouch:
“The photographer behind the now-infamous “topless” shot of Miley Cyrus released a statement yesterday defending the picture. “I’m sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted,” says Vanity Fair lenswoman Annie Leibovitz. “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.” While both of Miley‘s parents, including dad Billy Ray Cyrus, were at the photo shoot, they left before the controversial picture was taken. However, Miley‘s grandmother and teacher were present, which Vanity Fair was quick to point out. “Miley‘s parents and/or minders were on the set all day,” said a magazine spokeswoman. “Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.” The 15-year-old issued an apology for the revealing picture on Sunday.”
She’s a f*cking minor people! It doesn’t matter! If she isn’t old enough to legally smoke, or drink, then the plain and simple truth of the matter is that she should not be having pictures like that taken of her and distributed for public view. I’m all for love, peace, and all that great shit. But children should be allowed to be children. And a child’s right to be a child, should be protected. And if the people standing in the room that day, while they watched a CHILD stripping down and be exploited by the camera, cannot appreciate that, then they all should be slapped. Whatever she lets leak out on her own time is her business. And where are the parents, when Miley‘s posing in a bra on top of a boyfriend for a picture? Miley‘s parents need to step forward, and take some responsibility.
