Naked pictures of Miley Cyrus!
Mon Apr 28 2008
I woke up this morning to the news that 15-year-old Miley Cyrus, Disney's Hannah Montana, had apologized in response to a massive outcry against some "racy" portraits (Miley looks naked under a sheet) that appear the new Vanity Fair. Did I miss something last week? What outcry? Weren't the photos just released? How did all this snowball so quickly?
This so-called scandal is obviously the invention of VF's and Disney's PR machine. VF wants to sell issues. As for Disney, I'd venture that they wanted to manufacture their own Miley backlash before anyone else did. And now everyone can rush to Miley's defense!
The whole child-performer industry creeps me out—but it has nothing to do with the photos.
Do you think this is all a PR-propelled scandal?
