Miley Cyrus, who is the 15-year-old teen sensation, told the ET Online news that she felt so â€œembarrassedâ€ with her daring picture that shows semi-topless in the new â€œVanity Fairâ€ magazine issue.
She revealed, “I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be â€œartisticâ€ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
The shocking photo revealed an interview with the â€œHannah Montanaâ€ star and her father Billy Ray, and was snapped by the photographer named Annie Leibovitz. The promo included that they show Miley Cyrus sitting in profile with just a blanket wrapped around her chest.â€
The â€œVanity Fairâ€ editors responded, “Miley’s parents and/or minders were on the set all day. Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley..”
However, the â€œDisney Channelâ€ spokesperson revealed, “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”
