Miley: Call In The Image Repairers


Miley Cyrus has issued an apology to her fans for the photos and cover story about her that appears in the June issue of Vanity Fair. "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. ... I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about." In the interview Cyrus was quoted as saying that Sex and the City "is my favorite show! I love it!" and that her own show was modeled after it. (Commented writer Bruce Handy: "I can't imagine that her minders at the Walt Disney Company want to see Miley Cyrus's name anywhere near the word 'sex,' not in an era when every under-age actress in Hollywood is stalked by the Ghost of Britney Future.") Cyrus also disclosed that she counts scandal-plagued Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan among her friends. "I know they have good hearts and they're struggling," she added. Asked whether she doesn't have to watch her words carefully because she works for Disney, Cyrus replied. "Not really. That's what my parents are for. They're there to take care of that, and I can just do what I love." Asked about the topless photo of her taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz that accompanies the article, Cyrus said that it was the photographer's idea. "I think it's really artsy. ... It wasn't in a skanky way.... And you can't say no to Annie. She's so cute" The to-do over the Cyrus photos and article is reminiscent of a similar controversy that arose over a nude photo of the then-teen heartthrob David Cassidy taken by Leibovitz for the cover of Rolling Stone in 1972.
