When the Photographer is Rich and the Subject is Rich, it’s Not Kiddie Porn? Miley Cyrus Nude Photo


Hannah Montana posed nude for Annie Leibovitz. Miley Cyrus is 15.

In a caption with the image, Disney’s Hannah Montana star tells VF: “I think it’s really artsy. 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. She’s so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you’re like, ‘OK.’

I hope Vanity Fair and Leibovitz get their butts hauled into court, along with her daddy.

Disney Channel also took the offensive by issuing a statement. “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”

Well, duh. Thats what kiddie pornographers do. Manipulate and profit.

UPDATE: Oh, now she’s embarrassed. Apparently Dad and Leibovitz aren’t.

I feel so embarrassed,” she says. “I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.'”

UPDATE 2: Big Oops from the Disney Mousers. Seems they have a REALLY young kid all over billboards in China wearing a Mousy bra and panties.

Staring down at the throngs of shoppers on Beijing’s Xinjiekou Nandajie Avenue, a busy commercial thoroughfare about a mile west of the Forbidden City, was a white girl who looked all of 12, reclining in a matching bra-and-panties set adorned with Disney’s signature mouse-ear design.

When the Photographer is Rich and the Subject is Rich, it’s Not Kiddie Porn? Miley Cyrus Nude Photo — 13 Comments

  1. first of all she should not have even been said yes to a nude picture in the first place and any ways i dont think that (her daddy) is going to be to happy and also if she wants to do nude photos or whatever than tell her to join (PLAYBOY) and also if she likes her boobs so much tell her to get emplants

  2. Well, at least Annie Leibovitz is generally considered the most respectable celebrity photog. It could’ve been worse. But yeah, that’s kiddie porn in my book.

    Did you know there used to be a countdown calendar somewhere on the ‘Net for when Mary-Kate and Ashley were going to turn 18? Think Miley has one too by now? “South Park” suggested she’ll be the next Britney.

  3. @Gretchen: No question that Leibovitz is of the highest credentials. But I cannot be convinced that among the pictures she took there aren’t some with frontal nudity. It’s why porn can’t be regulated, who decides?
    Re: the countdowns – yeah, I’m sure she does and probably other young teens.

  4. Can the parent not be charged with child abuse for allowing this photo shoot? I am sure if it was an unknown 15 year old CHILD having nude photos taken by an unknown photographer here in my town, the local Childrens Aid would be immediately on this case.
    And the unknown photographer would be charged by the police.

  5. She’s quoted all over the place saying “I’m so embarrassed” – hmmmm…someone needs to get through these “teens” (and 20 yr. olds still acting like pre-teens) to ask themselves – is this going to embarrass me later! Sure we’ve all done some embarrassing things – but because of who they are it’s multiplied – since it comes with the territory, perhaps, they need something to remind them of the after effects.

  6. Nancy, you’re absolutely right. And her dad has a showbiz background, so you know, it’s not like they didn’t know the ropes.

    I think that because of her Disney Channel series, the Mouse is leaning on her very hard about this. I know Disney employees. They are like Big Brother and will excoriate anyone who threatens their wholesome image. And they’re not in a very good mood anyway now they’re no longer the be-all and end-all of animated moviemaking. I believe Hannah Montana is their hottest, most closely guarded property.

  7. Thanks Gretchen for saying I’m right! This is two days in a row someone has told me “I’m right”!!!! Yesterday according to my husband, “I was right” on the golf course – oh, and I beat the pants off him too. LMAO

  8. @BearNaked: Exactly. Leibovitz should be charged, and Cyrus should be charged. She’s underage and cannot sign waivers on her own behalf.
    By the end of the day, fake images will be all over the web.
    @Gretchen: I wonder if Disney has the guts to dump Miley over this? After all, she is just playing a character.

  9. Nancy: Your husband said you were right? Kiss that guy and keep him forever. I can only get Ben to admit that when he’s completely screwed the pooch and I’d told him so.

    Oh and Ben and I saw somewhere that Hannah Montana merchandise alone pulls in $1 billion a year. Seriously, I was in Target trying to buy summer T-shirts for Boolie in the girls’ 4-7 department and I could barely find anything that DIDN’T have that little broad’s name and/or face plastered all over it.

    Therefore I don’t think they’ll dump her. Because money talks, and bullshit walks.

  10. The pic that bothers me the most is the one of her dad and her. It’s creepy and makes me think of dirty ol’ men trolling for kids in chat rooms.

    I was a BR Cyrus fan….until now. EWWWW!

  11. @TrailerParkBarbie: I agree, I hadn’t seen it until after I wrote the post. VF’s website crashed from the traffic, so I guess the grown-ups got exactly what they wanted.

  12. I know Disney employees. They are like Big Brother and will excoriate anyone who threatens their wholesome image. And they’re not in a very good mood anyway now they’re no longer the be-all and end-all of animated moviemaking.thanks..

  13. My kids loves Hanna Montana so much that they are addicted to it. Anyway, Miley is a pretty and talented young girl.:~.
