My granddaughter loves Miley Cyrus and "Hannah Montana." I have to admit, when she is at the house watching it, I listen in. The show is funny -- though corny. And Miley has been so wholesome on any show I have seen her on.
Then news comes out about a photo shoot she had with Vanity Fair magazine in which some "racy" pictures were taken. Here is Miley's statement:
"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 Sunday in a statement through her publicist. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."
Give her credit for apologizing. But was the magazine to be blamed, or was it an error on the Cyrus' part in judging Miley's audience. After all, since the pictures came out, there has been an outcry against her.
The following is a statement from Vanity Fair, defending its position: "Miley's parents and/or minders were on the set all day," the magazine said. "Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley."
So is this another example of a teen going "adult," like Britanny Spears and so many before her? Or is this truly a regretful error on the part of the Cyruses? Or is it much to-do about nothing?
