Miley -- Miles from Reality on VF Shoot

4/28/2008 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus might be boo-hooing about this Vanity Fair shoot, but we're told that her parents were with her "the entire time" and that they knew everything that was going on. So any suggestion that Annie Leibovitz tricked Miley into taking racy shots are absurd: "There was no subterfuge," we're told.
Miley Cyrus, Annie Leibovitz
Well-placed sources at Vanity Fair say that the mag is "happy for all the press -- we're selling magazines, after all," and when it comes to Miley's suggestion that the legendary Leibovitz got her to take a topless shot, "Are you going to believe Annie Leibovitz or Miley Cyrus?"

For her part, Leibovitz said in a statement, "I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted."

this is an joke. The photographer has an big rep that she is not going to ruin by taking photos of Miley in wrong way.
Miley just needs attention. This is why she said anything at all... Bravo Vanity Fair for selling more magazine without trying.

Annie Leibowitz and Vanity Fair should be proud of their child pornography.

I hope VF enjoys all of their extra issue sales - even if they are to perverts.

Who on Earth takes pictures of a 15-year-old CHILD topless?

Considering all of the other slutty pictures of her that have come to light lately, she really has no credibility. She needs to shut up and go away until she matures. She is shaming her family and an embarrassment.

Annie Liebowitz is known for this. She is the Madonna of Photography, always trying to make a controversial photo so her name gets in the media. But when I see the cleavage -displaying low -cut backless dress Miley was wearing while singing with her Dad at the CMT awards, and the many other way-too-old outfits she has worn to events, obviously the parents are ok with Miley dressing like a Lolita.

She and her handlers/parents need to make up their minds...either she can play the
virgin or the tart. The previous comments are right....it didn't work for Brittney either.

Both her parents were there and the photos were shot with a digital camera so everyone was able to see the shots taken. And these are Mileys words in the magazine "I think it's really artsy," she told the magazine at the time. "It wasn't in a skanky way. Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie."
Disney did not like it so now she is acting all surprised.

Here's a better question: Is Annie Leibovitz the only fricken photographer in the world? Anytime anyone someone famous needs there picture taken it's her they call. Nothing against her really, but it's like, photography. Is she that far above every other photog it's not even close? I mean there are 2 billion people in Asia with cameras and not one of them can touch a flame to her.

she is old enough to know that a full bare back with nothing but a sheet is going to appear "naked"

she does NOT have a valid excuse to whine. If she wasn't comfortable she shouldn't have taken the pictures.

FACT: Annie Liebowitz has been one of the top professionals in her field for a very long time. Miss Miley is a mere drop in the celebrity bucket and despite her popularity, is still wet behind the ears.

This is very unfortunate for Miley's career and the "reputation" she led her fans to believe she cared about.

FACT: GIVE ANY CELEBRITY/IDOL LONG ENOUGH AND THEY WILL ALWAYS DISAPPOINT ...........

Does Miley even have consent to have a pic like that taken? Wouldn't her parents have to approve of it? It was definately the parents fault and the photogs fault. Miley should not be able to consent to do something like that.

Gee, why all the noise about the parents and the photographer. How about decency standards of a print publication showing photos of a 15-year old. They have no standards, so we know what they are. I won't be buying Vanity Fair anytime soon.

wtf    

Look no further then her slutty My Space pics. Her goal is to be known as a sleaze bag. Mission accomplished Miley.

BTW if a non celeb parent did this they would be in jail for child pornography.
