Hannah Montana vs Miley Cyrus











Behind the Scenes: V.F.’s fashion and style director Michael Roberts with Miley. (Makeup artist Pati Dubroff - hairstylist Christiaan) Billy Ray Cyrus, The Dad and Annie Leibovitz, The Shooter. All for the Vanity Fair June 2008 feature, Miley Knows Best. I'm reading a ton of comments online and in print about the 'growing up' of this 15 year old gazillionaire. Yes, they do become women and this phenomena is happening faster and faster these days. We need to embrace our collective womanhood and sensuality/sexuality. It's a beautiful force of nature. Coming of age. Discovering our instincts. Do Disney/Family Channel viewers (I'm talking the adults here) really believe that these young female stars will remain little girls forever? They seem to go into shock when they realize that these teenage actresses might actually have sex, get pregnant or have a life outside of their TV character. Why must we always enslave ourselves to toddlerhood?




UPDATE: O.K. Now I'm nauseated. Probably due to some contract, Miley has had to come out to apologize to the world for the photos. "For Vanity Fair, I was so honoured and thrilled to work with Annie. 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 in a statement published on People magazine's website. The Disney Channel backed up the rising star saying in a statement that "a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines". Miley is now seen out and about sans makeup. This shouldn't surprise anyone. Disney wants her to be 10 again.




Would you not agree that Miley and her father look like they are extremely relaxed; enjoying the photoshoot? (above photos) This is all about the 'bottom line' and profits. Poor Miley. So rich and yet no 'liberty' whatsoever. Oh, and Vanity Fair. They are serving champagne this morning in Graydon's office. This issue will sell out before you can say whippersnapper. Maybe they're behind all the ruckus. Miley needs to call me. Why are you apologizing? Don't do that to yourself. Call me girl.

agreed with jennifer. What is there to apologize for. Are some of the pictures too sexy?

You know, this whole apology thing goes on in politics and hollywood. You do whatever you want, then you do your mea culpa, go to rehab and you are forgiven with now an aura of sainthood and victim attached to your name. aka getting to have your cake and eat it too. perfect.

She's apologozing becuase one of the pictures was taken (supposedly) after her father left and she's topsless with that sheet over her and her skinny boney back is exposed. its a beautiful picture, but a little sexy. personally i find the pictures of her and her dad unsettling, those look sexy to me. makes me sick. she'll be the next britney - just wait - remember when spears was a virgin? she was going to wait and all that? I do. anyway - the reason she is apologizing is money. She is going to be worth over a billion when this is all over. if she looks slutty, the gravy train stops for her. she wants the money.

I think she shouldn't appologize either... She does have to grow up sometime... I think she's more embarassed about the reaction than the picture. I mean, come on... Annie L.? Who wouldn't want to have HER take your picture!

“Honey, sometimes a child-star decides she’d like to break into more serious roles, but doesn’t want to alienate her younger fans, so she poses for a sexy photo shoot then does a contrite press blitz to pretend it wasn’t calculated from the start. Also, Disney has programmed your every thought since you were 5. Night-night.” - From the POLL on www.236.com April 30/08

What i meant was...i dont see what the whole fuss is with this girl. I think shes not that talented...great marketing people behind her- thats for sure.
However i thought the photos with her father were a bit creepy...and weird. I wouldn't take a shot like the last one with my dad.....

Made by Girl: Hi Jennifer, You are right. The one with her Dad is creepy. Ewwwy. I think the whole thing is a result of the publicity machine gone nutso. She is making a fortune and so is everyone else around her.
