Hot Topic: Miley Cyrus In Vanity Fair
Alright guys, what do you think of this whole Miley Cyrus/Vanity Fair/Annie Leibovitz debacle? To refresh: Leibovitz shot the pop star for the magazine draped only in a sheet, very little makeup, and tossled hair. No matter which way you cut it, the photo certainly is provocative. It’s also beautiful, but really, wouldn’t expect anything less from a photographer of Leibovitz’s caliber. All that said, Cyrus is 15-years old. Regardless of whether her minders or grandmother or parents were at the shoot, isn’t it kind of…odd…for a magazine or a photographer to suggest sexy look in the first place? It’s pissing me off that so much of the “blame” for this shoot is being put on Miley — she’s not even legally able to drive yet. It seems to me that VF and Leibovitz were capitalizing on the recent controversy surrounding Miley’s “sexuality” in the first place, which is a good move from a business standpoint, I suppose, but a crappy one in general. Now the Christian Coalition is saying that Disney should reprimand Miley for the shoot and that she should take more responsibility for her actions since so many kids look up to her. Do you guys agree? Do you think the responsibility should rest on someone else’s shoulders instead? Or do you think this is big deal over nothing? I’ll tell you one thing: if Perez Hilton calls Miley a slut one more time, we’re gonna get our gossip from somewhere else!
