Miley Cyrus says she is embarrassed!

Never trust politicians or people in the entertainment industry. Miley Cyrus said she is embarrassed by an apparently racy photo spread appearing in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. Yea right!

"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," Cyrus said Sunday in a statement through her publicist. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."
The photos, appearing in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, were taken by Annie Leibovitz, a renowned celebrity photographer whose edgy, silver-toned portraits have included subjects such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and a naked, pregnant Demi Moore.

"I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted," Leibovitz said in a statement released by Vanity Fair. "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."
The Cyrus pictures accompany an interview with the 15-year-old pop star and her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus. One photo in particular is causing the biggest stir: the teen idol is wrapped in what appears to be a satin bedsheet, looking over her shoulder with her back exposed.

Vanity Fair defended the story and photo shoot in a statement of its own.

"Miley's parents and/or minders were on the set all day," the magazine said. "Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley."
In a caption released by Vanity Fair with the photo, Cyrus expressed her comfort with how the apparently topless picture turned out.

"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."
Cyrus is one of the biggest acts in the United States and is often considered a role model for young girls. Her "Best of Both Worlds" tour sold out arenas, and her successful 3-D concert film collected US$31.3 million in its opening weekend in February.

Now with her statements about the photo shoot raising public awareness it is guaranteed to be a hit as well!

As for her modesty, crocodile tears kids, crocodile tears!

Child boo! She needs to get over herself. If her parents (including her) saw the pics and no problem with them on the set, why make a big scene over it now. It's probably no different then how she has appeared on a few red carpets I've seen her walk down. Grow up, it's a human body! If I was Vanity Fair I wouldn't allow her in the magazine ever again, but that's just me.

A beautiful and natural portrait of a 15 year old in a sheet? Sorry, but that is just wrong.

I think her parents should be ashamed. I guess Disney is in an uproar. The pic she posed for with her father doesn't look like father and daughter. More like boyfriend/girlfriend. Very odd.

I would think her dad would be a little embarrassed about the photos. He seems to be very protective of his daughter and has talked about their religious faith before.

For the life of me I don't understand why anyone cares.

I would like to think she is true to her word because she claims to be a Christian. I will probably end up disappointed in her as I have been in many others before her.
