The New York Daily News New York Daily News is reporting that McCready met Clemens when she was 15, and for the next ten years, the pair spent plenty of time together, with McCready coming to games and sitting behind home plate when the Rocket pitched.

At 15 years old, Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) has been walking a tight rope between looking hip and stylish, while still laying claim to being an icon for children as young as 6. A look at her recent photo spread in Vanity Fair Vanity Fair makes one think that Cyrus may have just fallen off the high wire. She didn't rate the cover, but even the photo with her father on Vanity Fair's Web site seems a little on the risque side.

Yeah, how dare Vanity Fair manipulate an innocent 15-year-old girl, and also manipulate her parents and minders who were present during the photoshoot as well and who saw the images as they were being taken thanks to the wonders of digital photography. My family and my faith will guide me through my life's journey."

"I think it's really artsy," she told the magazine at the time. "It wasn't in a skanky way.
"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. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Miley Cyrus is taking issue with a photo of herself that's going around, and it's not another amateur, truth-or-dare Internet snapshot — it's the handiwork of Annie Leibovitz.

In an unprecedented move, Miley Cyrus is apologizing to her fans apologizing to her fans for semi-topless photos (with a blanket wrapped around her chest) that aren't even out yet. The Vanity Fair photos -- snapped by Annie Leibovitz -- of the 15-year-old will hit the stands later this week.They accompany an interview with her and her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.

Annie Leibovitz's photos of the 15-year-old star were defended by Vanity Fair, yet Disney claims they exploited Miley to sell magazines. Shockingly, this is the first time a movie with a female lead has taken the much coveted number one spot since February.
The photos were taken by Annie Leibovitz, a well-respected photographer, and allegedly include some shots of Cyrus topless and covering herself with a blanket. The 15-year-old star was accompanied by her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus, for the interview and photo shoot. Vanity Fair defended its story and photographs. Apparently Billy Ray, mum Leticia and other Cyrus minders didn't object when the 15-year-old star of stage and screen was asked by Vanity Fair photographer Annie Leibovitz to pose topless and wrapped in a sheet for the magazine. That photo is now inciting universally hostile reaction from commentators and parents, who thought Hannah Montana was a good girl. In the accompanying Vanity Fair article, Miley is quoted as saying the pose was "what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie".

Miley Cyrus is a talented young girl with lots of energy. Here is this mom's thoughts on all these pictures. Vanity Fair is an artsy, I guess very popular magazine that this middle class, (who I am kidding, poor, I love the USA!) would never, ever buy. They quite frankly have shown an array of photos over the years I have found well, just weird and inappropriate. (nude photos of pregnant actresses, ewww) This latest stint with Miley Cyrus showed very poor judgement by ALL the adults involved. I can not believe her family, who are said to have been present, found this OK. The almighty dollar clouded their judgement to be sure. Poor Miley, they can't let the millions she is making and will continue to make portraying Hannah Montanna and touring be enough. Her people are doing their best to ensure her career will ride for many, many years to come. This reeks of greed to me, pure and simple. Annie Leibovitz should be charged with child endangerment as a lot of pedophiles will love these pictures. The other "sexy" photos of Miley she herself put out there, she's a teenager, and teenagers do silly things. In this day and age it is hard to be a teenager living in the U.S., a country whose moral temperature is getting close to that of hell freezing over. Recently Miley Cyrus was interviewed for Vanity Fair magazine, and posed for photos with Annie Leibovitz - the woman responsible for one of the most famous photos of all time one of the most famous photos of all time, plus the photo that made the Queen get all pretend-spazzy made the Queen get all pretend-spazzy last year.
Paedophile wish-fulfillment tweenbot Miley Cyrus is at it again - and this time her 15-year-old breasts are coming along for the ride too. As if the recent internet photos of Miley Cyrus whipping her bra out around rolling on a boy's lap in her underwear weren't enough, now the web is abuzz with a brand new picture - a picture that shows Miley Cyrus completely topless, or at least as topless as you can be when you're covered in a blanket. What's more, this topless Miley Cyrus photo was taken for well-known spank rag Vanity Fair by that filthy pornographer Annie Leibovitz. Then things started to go awry. First Miley Cyrus didn't wear a seatbelt Miley Cyrus didn’t wear a seatbelt in public, and then - as these things tend to do - that snowballed and snowballed until Miley Cyrus got her bra out on the internet Miley Cyrus got her bra out on the internet. Luckily, Miley Cyrus' run of irresponsible behaviour ended right there and she never did anything controversial ever again. Except, you know, all those topless photos Miley Cyrus had taken for Vanity Fair. It looks like Miley Cyrus has had a topless photo done. Honestly, talk about bad timing - this is probably the worst timing that we've ever seen involving the publication of a 15-year-old girl's topless photos. Or at least it would be if Miley Cyrus was actually, you know, topless in any of them.
Miley Cyrus, daughter of 'Achy Breaky Heart' singer Billy and star of Hannah Montana (like High School Musical but with just the one precocious brat) has apologised to fans after she posed topless for Vanity Fair. The actress did the 'artistic' photoshoot (that's what they all say) for the magazine but some say it's a bit suggestive for a 15 year old. Even though her modesty is covered by a sheet, it's still a provocative pose for a child. TEEN star MILEY CYRUS has apologised to her fans for posing topless in a magazine shoot. The 15-year-old, who stars in hit U.S. show Hannah Montana, only had a satin bedsheet to cover her modesty while taking part in a provocative shoot for U.S. title Vanity Fair.
Noah, curiously, looks like Dakota Fanning. Miley says her Disney Channel sitcom, Hannah Montana, in which she plays a schoolgirl with a secret life as a rock star, is patterned in part after the former HBO series about women looking for love and hookups in Manhattan. "Obviously not the scenarios," she explains quickly. "But if you watch Sex and the City, like the way the friends are, the way that it's dry and they all have distinct charactersthat's a thing we try to do on our show." She's earnest and sincere about her workdistinct characters are a good thingand it's always nice to see a young star give a shout-out to her forebears. (She's also an I Love Lucy fan.) That said, I can't imagine that her minders at the Walt Disney Company want to see Miley Cyrus's name anywhere near the word "sex," not in an era when every under-age actress in Hollywood is stalked by the Ghost of Britney Future. Not when so much money is riding on this one's continued public innocence. Cond Nast Portfolio magazine recently estimated that Cyrus is "on track" to be worth dllrrs1 billion by the time she's 18. I'm guessing that seriously overestimates her personal cut of the Hannah Montana pie. She might very well be the biggest child star since Shirley Temple, give or take a couple of Macaulay Culkin movies, or an Olsen twin. Certainly she's the biggest since Lindsay Lohan earned the right to vote and go to war. The Richest Kids list predicts Miley's Hannah Montana franchise will be worth a billion dollars by 2009. She has packed arenas around the world and broken box office records with her first movie, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert. Last year alone the singer and actress took home 9million as her fame spread round the world. She has sold 6.5million albums and beaten both The Beatles and Elvis by getting SEVEN singles into the U.S. Top 100 at once. Miley became an overnight sensation when her show started on the Disney Channel. She plays a schoolgirl who at night puts on a blonde wig and leads a secret double life as pop star Hannah Montana. Miley's squeaky-clean image was tarnished for strait-laced American families when saucy pictures appeared on the internet of her showing her bra strap and cuddling up to a boy. Worried their little girl will go off the rails like Britney Spears, her parents got her to agree to a deal where she promises she will live at the 500-acre family farm in Nashville, Tennessee, until she is 20. Other child millionaires on the list include Little Miss Sunshine star Abigail Breslin, 12, who earns 1m a movie but gets only 5-a-week pocket money. Teen pop sensation Miley Cyrus, also known as Hannah Montana from Disney Channel's wildly popular series with the same name, is so rich she could retire right now and live the rest of her life with the money she made so far. According to People magazine, the 15-year-old singer/actress, who is already richer than her father, country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus, will likely become a billionaire by the end of the year. Topping the magazine's list of the richest teen celebrities, Miley took home approximately dllrrs17 million last year alone from her sold-out tours, about dllrrs1 million a week from the estimated dllrrs50 million in tour grosses. Her 3-D concert film "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour" comprising concert footage and behind-the-scene clips from the tour, raked in dllrrs29 million from tickets sold during its release weekend. At the root of Miley-mania is Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" series, the story of an American teenager, Miley Stewart, who leads a normal life by day and is a pop star by night. It has become one of Disney's most effective marketing campaigns ever. Millions of viewers age six to 14 watch the show each week, in which the on-screen father of Miley Stewart and her alter ego Hannah Montana is her real life father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus previously best known for singing "Achy Breaky Heart." "This phenomenon really plays into the 'anybody can be a star' (idea).
The photo was taken by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz. Cyrus is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who appears on the show with his progeny. She has vaulted Hannah Montana, in which she plays a school girl by day and a music star with a secret identity, into one of the leading shows and a cultural cynosure among kids 6 to 11 and the 9-to-14 tween set. Cyrus embarked on a sold-out "Hannah Montana: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour," a sold-out "Hannah Montana: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour," playing off the duality of her TV persona and herself, which begat a concert film.

In these racy photos, Cyrus lies across her then-boyfriend's lap, (her producer's son), while another showed her revealing part of her green bra.
The young star of the super successful Disney property Hannah Montana has caused quite the stir around Disney and may have put the entire Hannah Montana franchise at risk. We can only wonder what road this young lady is taking. Is Miley Cyrus headed down the same road as Britney Spears the one time virgin sweet heart of America? Miley Cyrus says no, she thought she was posing for artistic photos and didn't suspect the photos would be used they way they were used. Vanessa Williams Vanessa Williams may star in her own hit sitcom, but becoming the "world's coolest mom"? Now that took a little help from Miley Cyrus. The Ugly Betty star said she's going to play Hannah Montana's publicist in a version of the Disney Channel show and her daughter is very excited during Lincoln Center's Annual Spring Gala Wednesday night. "My 7-year-old, Sasha Gabrielle, is into Miley's music," Williams told PEOPLE after the event, adding that the deal is so new, she "hasn't even signed yet." Miley Cyrus, a teen idol and star of the Disney Channel show Hannah Montana, was pictured apparently topless, with a satin bedsheet protecting her modesty.
The Disney show sees Cyrus playing a girl who leads a double life as a teenager and a pop star. A film version, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds, topped the U.S. box office in February. Leibovitz is best-known for her images of a naked John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono, and the 1991 shot of then-pregnant actress Demi Moore. Miley Cyrus has signed a seven-figure deal with the Disney Book Group to write her memoirs, it was announced this week. The 15-year-old actress, who shot to fame as the star of the hit U.S. TV show Hannah Montana, will write about her childhood, growing up in Tennessee, and how her family keep her grounded. She said: "I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me. I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together, and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams."

Cyrus rocketed to fame as Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel's TV show of the same name about a girl who leads a double life as a teenager and singing sensation.
Twelve-year-old Abigail Breslin might have an Oscar nomination, but Cyrus has stats. Hannah Montana is the Disney Channel's current crown jewel: its ratings for its target audience, kids ages 6 to 14, are second only to American Idol' s. Cyrus also has two multi-platinum records to her name (well, one to Hannah's name and one, a double album, co-credited to Hannah and Miley) and is the youngest performer to have two No. 1 albums within 12 months. Her recent concert tour sold out 70 dates across North America and caused an uproar when tickets started being scalped for thousands of dollars, in some cases. (Try getting that for your spare High School Musical: The Ice Tour ticket.) The subsequent cash-in film, Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, released in 3-D, set several records, including highest-grossing release on a Super Bowl weekend (dllrrs31.1 million) and highest per-screen average ever (dllrrs45,561); those numbers are either because of or despite the fact that tickets to Cyrus's film were sold at the inflated price of dllrrs15, on average. The star of Disney Channel TV show Hannah Montana is set to be a billionaire by the end of the year. She's still only 15. Miley's astonishing fortune was revealed when she topped a list of Hollywood's most loaded kids. The Disney Channel, which airs hit show Hannah Montana, accused the magazine of trying to manipulate the young star.
A spokesman for The Disney Channel, which airs the Hannah Montana TV show, said: "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines." "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines." Cyrus is a popular Disney celebrity with the hit Hannah Montana series and Best of Both Worlds Concert, which became a top-selling live show, 3-D concert film and now album.
BILLY Ray Cyrus has committed several crimes against popular culture - bad hair, bad song and bad dance inspiration. He can add bad parenting to Achy Breaky Heart and line-dancing on his roll of life achievements. Cyrus has a 15-year-old daughter named Destiny Hope who is more commonly known to millions of parents and their youngsters as Miley, or Hannah Montana, her Disney pop phenomenon alter ego. Miley Cyrus is on a downward spiral and no mistake. Formerly a fresh-faced young tween sensation responsible for the entire Hannah Montana juggernaut, Miley Cyrus was the wholesome poster girl who, despite occasional glimpses of harmless sass, was a good child who loved her parents. And, given that one of those parents is rat-tailed chuffwit Billy Ray Cyrus, that made Miley Cyrus very special indeed. "Very young girls look up to Miley Cyrus as a role model." It is doubtful that one photograph - especially one that is tame in the context of an Internet awash in nude photographs of other starlets - could dent the Hannah Montana machine, said several Wall Street analysts.
LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Fifteen-year-old Miley Cyrus stars in a wildly popular Disney television series, sings to packed concert halls and this week announced the billion-dollar publication of her "memoirs." She is the idol of countless American girls, but experts warn Cyrus, star of "Hannah Montana" could be headed for a bad-girl breakdown along the lines of fallen pop singer Britney Spears and child-star turned substance-abuser Lindsay Lohan. Hannah Montana's teen star Miley Cyrus has apologised for racy photos of her which are due to be published. According to Google Trends, Vanity Fair is the second-most popular search term, miley cyrus vanity fair comes in fourth and Hannah Montana vanity fair trails in fifth place. According to the Associated Press, Miley Cyrus has apologized to her fans for posing in scandalous photographs for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. She has expressed her feelings of embarrassment after having seen the photographs and reading the story. Miley Cyrus fans will get to see a different side of the pop sensation in June's Vanity Fair, and it's a side she apparently has second thoughts about revealing.
A Vanity Fair spokeswoman counteracted on the magazine and photographer's behalf that the girl's parents and/or reps were on the set all day, viewed the controversial digital shot and "thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley". That's like saying Paris Hilton's parents thought it was beautifully natural for their daughter to attain fame, thanks to a sex act. Vanity Fair and Leibovitz manipulated and exploited a 15 year old girl for sexually provocative shots.True, Miley's folks were there and were led to believe that she would be doing a classy, artistic shoot with a world-renowned photographer. Wrong! Leibovitz wangled the "money shot" out of Miley by pouting, screwing up her face, and feigning hurt and disappointment. As Miley said, the pictures aren't skanky, because she isn't a skank, but they are trashy because Vanity Fair and Leibovitz are unrepentant, left-wing trash whose purpose was to besmirch and ding up the biggest young Christian entertainer on the planet.
I wonder if Disney is going to be quite as understanding and forgiving. It's almost a sure thing that Vanity Fair is gonna take some major heat for the photos, even though they're just the latest of several surprising shots of the talented young singer. The naughty photo Miley took of herself Miley took of herself in her undies for MySpace in January. According to Vanity Fair, Miley thought the proofs looked artsy. It no longer matters what she was thinking when she did the shoot. The public and her employers, the Disney Channel, both think the photos are a little too scandalous - especially for a minor. The Disney Channel, after learning of the Vanity Fair photo spread and article also issued a statement critical of the magazine.
Vanity Fair and the Cyrus family has enabled it. Disney Channel needs to take action or they're all going to follow the lead.
Oh please. Does anyone remember Christina Aguilera's videos from her teenage years? Or Britney's? Thanks to the American music industry we've become desensitised to images of adolescents prancing about in nearly nothing, and everyone involved is making millions. Miley Cyrus shows a little bit of her back (although perhaps ill-advised by the photographer or her parents) and she's in the firing line. Why? Because she is associated with the Disney Channel, where Christina and Britney first became famous as Mousketeers. She's only 15 and she cannot possibly make decisions about her media image on her own. It should be her parents and Annie Leiowitz apologising to the public, not Miley Cyrus. Last week, Gary Marsh, the president of entertainment for Disney Channel Worldwide, was quoted in Portfolio magazine saying, "For Miley Cyrus to be a 'good girl' is now a business decision for her. Parents have invested in her a godliness. If she violates that trust, she won't get it back."
And, as well as being taken by a respected artist for a well-renowned magazine, none of Miley Cyrus pictures are actually topless. The most revealing photo shows Miley wrapped in a blanket with both of her arms covering everything that could be considered as even slightly indecent. It's all a bit of a storm in a teacup, really - one that's been whipped up by kneejerking reactionaries with nothing better to do. Miley Cyrus would be acting like the worst kind of backtracking celebrity arsehole to apologise to these idiots. If enough people complain with us, maybe we can force an apology out of Miley Cyrus for that, too. Maybe she'll even insinuate that she was tricked into wearing green shoes by an evil adult again. Anyway, despite all the fuss, these 'topless' Miley Cyrus photos might even be good for her career in the long run - look what happened after Lindsay Lohan had those topless photos Lindsay Lohan had those topless photos taken.
Go behind the scenes at the Annie Leibovitz photo shoot with Miley Cyrus. 'Hannah Montana' star Miley Cyrus has issued an apology after posing for a racy photo shoot.
The photos accompany an article on Cyrus and her father, country music star Billy Ray Cyrus. "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," she said in a statement. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about." "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." "I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about," she said in a statement. In the images Cyrus, who said she was "thrilled" to work with celebrity photographer Leobovitz, appears wrapped in a blanket, apparently topless. On Sunday, Cyrus apparently had a change of heart. "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," she said in a statement issued by her publicist, Jill Fritzo. "I never intended for any of this to happen, and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."
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. Miley said: "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. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about. Her comments may have appeased her critics, but they have not gone down well with the magazine that published them.
"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." "I think it's really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way." That's us convinced then. She shouldn't have to worry too much as according to reports she is now the wealthiest child in the world. She made £9m in 2007 and her Hannah Montana franchise is estimated to be worth dllrrs1 billion by 2009. Which is good news for old Billy as Hannah Montana gave him something to do again as he was never going to be able to better 'Achy Breaky Heart'. "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. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about," she said in a statement.
Jimmy Fallon seems like a natural for the chair. This weekend also had two Hollywood ladies in the spotlight and for very different reasons and they round out the "Pop Three". Critics are slamming Miley Cyrus for yet another photo shoot, this one without a top without a top.  If Miley Cyrus is shaken over the recent candid photos that leaked online of her cuddling with a boy, the singer can count on her friends for support. Apart from being road partners, Jonas says his band is "good friends" with the teen star. Like Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers have built their career around a teen-friendly reputation. Miley Cyrus already has the support of the Jonas Brothers support of the Jonas Brothers after several personal photos of the star leaked online, but she's also getting encouragement from someone else who knows what it's like to be in the spotlight.
Between sold-out concerts, multi-platinum records, and a hit TV series, Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has some serious business riding on her 15-year-old shouldersnot to mention paparazzi on her tail and tabloid editors praying for her to pull a Britney. How'd she get so (relatively) normal? Bruce Handy journeys to deepest Toluca Lake to find out. Miley Cyrus and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, photographed in Calabasas, California. Their easy on-screen rapport is a key part of Hannah Montana's success. Hannah Montana ranks first among TV series of U.S. cable television for children aged 6 to 14. Her concert tour last year, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds was a sensation, sparking a 3D movie that topped the box office chart. The wildly popular Miley Cyrus (a.k.a. Hannah Montana) is joining the dreaded ranks of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears with her own mini photo-scandal.
Hannah Montana provides the illusion of a reality show. She's an everyday girl, and lives this fantastic life. It's really a way to market to that fantasy," said Karen Sternheimer, a sociologist at the University of Southern California. Cyrus and her good-girl image is the latest embodiment of "a long line of these young female stars that are as much packaged for the children's parents as for the kids themselves," she said. "We kind of build up these good girls and tear them down when they can't live up to this impossible ideal," said Sternheimer, citing Lohan and Spears, whose drug-and-alcohol escapades have been well publicized, and Spears' younger sister Jamie Lynn, star of Nickelodeon's teen series "Zoey 101" who recently announced she is pregnant. Miley, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, has also apologised to fans for other saucy pics which found their way on to the internet. One image showed the young actor lying provocatively over her ex-boyfriend exposing her midriff, while another shows her pulling down her top to reveal a green bra. In a statement released to People magazine she said: "My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. The first set of photos depicting a growing-too-fast Miley surfaced on the internet the last week. The star, daughter of country music singer Billy Ray, pulled down her tank top, revealing her green bra in one of the photos. She posed on the lap of her then-boyfriend, looking playfully at the camera and pulling up her top to show her midriff.
Father Billy Ray shot, too." Though Cyrus's parents left before the final shot, with Miley supposed to be appearing topless, the source said: "Miley's grandmother and her teacher were there when she shot it. Annie convinced them it was going to be artistic. Her parents are mortified. They know this is a learning moment for Miley. "The photo suggests that she is naked, but she is not. She is covered by a sheet, and beneath the sheet she is clothed. Originally, she was in a flesh-colored tank top but was asked to remove it." The photos were shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. In the photo Miley appears to be topless and wrapped in a blanket, but her parents were with her during the photoshoot, even her grandma was there, and they liked the photo and thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.
Now, the controversial semi-nude Vanity Fair shot Vanity Fair shot s. Beyond the obvious icky Lolita aspects of the photo, it's just not a very flattering shot of Miley. She looks scary and messy. Her parents and/or minders should never have approved it on the basis of that alone. Do small children read Vanity Fair? No. But the parents who pay dllrrs100 plus for tickets to Miley's sold out shows do. Considering this photo is now part of every Web search kids do for their favorite star, they are bound to see it pretty soon. I dunno. Candid internet photos of Miley pulling down her T-shirt to show off a green lace bra last week. Semi-topless professional photos on the web this week, soon to appear in Vanity Fair. Somebody needs to pull in the reins of this talented little gal, before her career stampedes off into the sunset.
The Vanity Fair photo of Miley "in a blanket" looks like it is a candid photo taken between shots. Vanity Fair editors told Entertainment Tonight that Miley's parents and/or minders were on the set during the shoot and that everyone thought the shots were fine.
The cover of the June issue of Vanity Fair and the photograph of Miley Cyrus, inset. A spokesperson for Vanity Fair was not immediately available for comment. Cyrus also apologized Sunday for a series of personal photos that circulated on the Internet last week in which she bared her midriff and her bra. A Disney spokeswoman, Patti McTeague, faulted Vanity Fair for the photo. "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines," she said. Annie Leibovitz, the celebrity photographer, has been accused of "manipulating" a 15-year-old pop star into posing semi-naked for Vanity Fair magazine.

LOS ANGELES - Fifteen years old, topless and wrapped in what appears to be a satin bedsheet in the June issue of Vanity Fair.
Why do all these young stars feel the need to act and dress like adults? When I see these girls on TV they look like they are over 21 years old. I really didnt know who Miley was, I have 2 boys, they dont watch Hannah Montanna, so when I found out that she was only 15 I was shocked. I thought she was at least 20.  Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie." Cyrus is the daughter of the singer Billy Ray Cyrus and a huge star in the U.S., where she is considered a role model for young girls. Her Best Of Both Worlds tour sold out arenas, her 3-D concert film took dllrrs31.3 million in its opening weekend in February and she is the youngest performer to have two number one albums in the space of 12 months. The Cyrus pictures accompany an interview with the 15-year-old pop star and her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus. They include shots of the teen wrapped in what appears to be a satin bedsheet, looking over her shoulder with her back exposed.
The book will feature stories about the Cyrus family, including Miley's father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, and never-before-seen photos and details of Miley's closest friends. NEW YORK (Billboard) - There are plenty of old expressions about "the family that (insert activity) together, stays together," but rock band Metro Station might be responsible for creating a new take on it: The family that climbs the pop charts together, stays together. If vocalist/guitarist Trace Cyrus' name seems familiar, it's probably because you've heard of his half-sister, a young singer named Miley, or perhaps his stepdad, Billy Ray. For his part, though, the Metro Station Cyrus would prefer to focus on his own band and the success it has had crossing over to and climbing the pop radio charts. Its second single, "Shake It," is currently No. 74 on the Billboard Hot 100, up 14 spots in the last week. A Disney spokesman said: "Kids are earning more and more and can command huge fees in Hollywood, but no one could have predicted how popular Miley would be. She's a true star." Miley says her dad - Achy Breaky Heart country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, 46 - lets her have only 150 a month and has banned her from touching a penny of her riches until her 18th birthday. She also has to do three hours of schooling a day. Mum Leticia, 40, said: "A lot goes into her investment fund, which she can't touch until she's 18."
Miley Cyrus: Displaying Naughtiness? Or Synergy at Work?CONGRATS TO MILEY CYRUS AND HER DADDY, BILLY RAY, WHO HAVE succeeded in turning a wholesome TV princess into a poor little rich girl. Doesn't that always make for 'more sellable' story? Because now they have to manufacture dirt to make the just-sold million dollar biography of a privileged 15-year-old more appealing.

Sneaky bastards. It's all quite ridiculous, but it's given us an idea for a brilliant new game. Next time Miley Cyrus goes out wearing, say, green shoes, we're going to bitch and wail and kick up a stink about the fact that Miley Cyrus is wearing green shoes like a slut and that she's only 15 for god's sake and a role-model to millions. DAYS after raunchy pictures of her were flashed across the net, there are new claims teen sensation Miley Cyrus has posed nude for a magazine. The queen of preteens Miley Cyrus is still a good girl, even though two sets of naughty pictures were taken of her recently. Excuse me? This is a 15 yr. old minor. Just because she is Miley Cyrus and the photographer is Annie Liebovitz, this is acceptable? And, this is supposedly "artistic"? Something is literally wrong with this picture. OK, so what actually happened was that one of the world's most famous photographers took a picture of Miley Cyrus that isn't really very naked in the slightest.
Shame on a disgusting public for making wholesome and innocent nudity seem pornographic and obscene, and for making Miley Cyrus feel ashamed. If she apologizes for anything regarding the photo, it should only be for the unintended negative reaction it inspired. MORE SCANDAL: Miley Cyrus has spoken out about two photo scandals that have erupted in the past week. MILEY Cyrus is in trouble again over raunchy photos, and Ashton Kutcher has confirmed he has weird feet.
Miley Cyrus has signed a seven-figure book deal with Disney Book Group, the teen star's publisher announced Tuesday. The book will focus on the 15-year-old's road to fame, from growing up in Tennessee to navigating the spotlight as an international star, and how her family especially mother Leticia helps keep her grounded. Miley Cyrus has shown herself to be nothing more than the same old slutty trash that Disney turns young women into. Our popular culture is becoming a blur. There is no better example of how quickly things happen these days than the recent announcement that pop singer Miley Cyrus has been offered a seven-figure deal to write her autobiography. She is 15. Oh, I know a lot of you are probably surprised that someone that young, even someone as famous and successful as Miley, could read an autobiography, let alone write one, but these are fast and heady times indeed. I t's my favorite show! I love it!" says 15-year-old Miley Cyrus, speaking of Sex and the City over spinach-artichoke dip in a dingy Toluca Lake restaurant that for some reason, possibly native to the San Fernando Valley, is divided between cheerful families enjoying Saturday lunches and a glum row of barflies passing time by watching I-don't-know-what on ESPN Classic. Miley Cyrus and pal Mandy Jiroux have posted yet another installment of their YouTube series "The Miley & Mandy Show." This time, Cyrus and Jiroux, a dancer on the Best of Both Worlds tour, have created their own version of Madonna Madonna's "4 Minutes" video.
Miley Cyrus is a talented girl. Concerning this brewing controversy here are my thoughts. Miley Cyrus also figured among the presenters at the Oscars on February 24, an event watched by hundreds of millions of viewers. "This is a huge financial bonanza for Disney," said Jerry Del Colliano, an expert on the music industry at the University of Southern California.
Of course, when the photo leaked on the weekend, the Disney spin team went into action and the photo Miley had described as "artsy" was now embarrassing. It could potentially cripple Hannah Montana book, film and merchandise deals worth billions. Miley burst onto U.S. TV screens as Miley Stewart, whose alter-ego is the singing sensation Hannah Montana, in the Disney show in 2006.
The Disney Channel, which airs Hannah Montana, accused the mag of trying to manipulate Cyrus to boost sales. Cyrus and singer/guitarist Mason Mitchell formed Union Station in 2006. Their younger siblings co-star in the Disney Channel's wildly popular "Hannah Montana."
Cyrus is the star of Disney's Hanna Montana childrens television show and is the idol of millions of small children as a result of that. At 15, she is also a budding music star, taking after her dad Billy Ray. In the pics that are floating around cyber space, she is seen flashing her bra, semi nude, and lying across the lap of a young boy showing her belly.  The photos accompany an article on Cyrus and her father, country music star Billy Ray Cyrus.
The photo comes at an awkward time for the star. In recent months, several snapshots have circulated on the internet, purportedly of Cyrus and showing her posing in her underwear and cuddling up to a male friend. Regarding the photos on the Internet, Cyrus said these were "silly, inappropriate shots" and she was sorry if she had disappointed anyone. "I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect," she said. In the statement to "People," Cyrus said, "The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone."
While Cyrus said she's embarrassed by the photos in her Sunday statement, in her interview with the magazine that accompanies the spread, she called the back-baring shot "really artsy" but not "in a skanky way" and said "You can't say no to Annie."
Disney Book Group made waves with the revelation that Cyrus' memoir would be published in spring 2009, with People magazine setting the windfall for the rising teen sensation's first book at around one billion dollars. The book is to tell the story of how the teenager shot to fame and yet has managed to keep her feet on the ground with the support of her family, which Cyrus said she hopes will "inspire kids around the world to live their dreams."
The magazine said Cyrus and her family and handlers were on the set during the shoot, saw the digital images and thought the photos were a "beautiful and natural portrait of Miley." The article, written by Bruce Handy, seems to support that claim, quoting Ms. Cyrus as saying, "Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought it was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie." She also said of the photo, "I think it's really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way." Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie." A handful of borderline racy snapshots of a girl who appeared to be Cyrus have appeared on the Internet in recent months, including images of a girl posing in her underwear and bikini last week.
In December, another set of photos circulated on the Internet showing Cyrus and a girlfriend almost kissing. "It was me," Cyrus tells VF, "on my MySpace. For me, I was like, That's two girls it's not a big deal.
Cyrus, heroine to a legion of young fans and who earned dllrrs18.5 million last year, has had a series of scantily clad photos leaked from MySpace leaked on the internet. My grand-daughter who is 8 years old is a big fan of "Hannah Montana". Now suddenly Miss Cyrus has pictures of herself scantily attired, flashing her bra etc. This is a 15 year old kid. Last month, Ms. Cyrus was chosen favorite television actress at Nickelodeon's "Kids' Choice Awards." More than 3 million viewers regularly watch "Hannah Montana," most of them age 6 to 14. Ms. Cyrus and the "Hannah Montana" series have been championed as one of the few entertainment sanctuaries for children, complicating matters.
The success of the show was followed up with the release of a Hannah Montana soundtrack, which featured Miley singing eight songs. This 40 year old mom likes Hannah Montana, the songs are catchy and the show is funny. Screen grabs of the photo quickly popped up online, sparking a blogosphere debate. "Bonfire anyone?" wrote Lin Burress on her marriage and parenting blog, Telling It Like It Is, referring to the mountain of Hannah Montana retail items - makeup, shoes, clothes - in the marketplace.
The parents should be slapped. What parent lets their 15 year old daughter pose in an erotic photo shoot for an adult magazine like that? Have they lost their minds? And when this girl turns 20 years old and is found with coke and photographed without panties, everyone will blame her--wrong: blame the parents.  Miley had her parents with her during the shoot, alright. They were selling line tickets to the photo crew. Tickets to boink the little slut before she turns 16 and the novelty wears off. Dad and mom are only doing this so Miley will be financially secure into her old age.when she can legally vote. She will then be able to sign all the porn deals she wants without needing her Hill Billy dad to consent. Never fear though, he trains her everyday for when "Vivid" comes knocking at the door wanting to film "Spank Me Daddy, One More Time." Nudity is not inherently synonymous with sex, and we are fools to make that mistake. Why is a photo of a nude 8 month old in the bath harmless and cute, but a nude 8 year old suddenly pornographic? It is not the picture that is sexualized, but the particular viewer. Even if Miley was topless, so what? Even if she is 15, what's the big deal? It still would not have been a sexual image, in and of itself. It is the audience which imbues the sexual tones, transforming innocence into prurience. It is the audience which has gone to an "impure" place. It is the audience which has made the photo "wrong".
Tasteful? Ha! Exploitative? Yes. The child is a victim. the people who need to be apologizing are the pedophiliac Annie Liebovitz and her parents/minders who ok'd this. I can't believe this interviewer thinks the pictures are 'relatively' tame. It's Hollywood-ized adults in their own bubble who think it's ok for children to do this. If she "cared" so much about her fans she would stop acting like this. Obviously, her publicists care about her fans. Spin away, while Miley's parents laugh their way to the bank. That pic with her father is also creepy. Im a grandmother and not a prude, but the only picture that I saw that was in good taste was the one with Miley and her dad when she was a little girl, the rest points to trash. The one with the sheet only looks like she just jumped out of bed after a roll in it, very sleazy. You cant tell me that she didnt feel at one point that this is wrong, Im dissapointed in her parents too. Thats it from this end. I find that image of Miley truly disturbing. I feel so sorry for this little girl whose parents have thrown her in front of the truck that is celebrity. After seeing the general trajectory for teen stars I have no idea why a parent would subject their child to that world. It is just so distorting and delusional.
I have a daughter who is nine years old and Miley Sirus is her role model at this point in her life. We have Hannah Montanna tshirts, posters, CDs,DVDs and have bought tickets to the 3D concert. This does change my opinion of Miley Sirus and further more changes my opinion of her parents, she is still a child and needs guidance from her mother and father. I actually feel bad for Miley that she has no better guidance from her parents.
"The tweens buy things with parents' money. Interestingly enough, the parents are so taken into this, that they're fighting to pay the 1,000 dollars or more for a ticket," he said. "This thing is so textbook for Disney, that you whip the kids into a frenzy, but also the parents who are the ones who pay. Parents are happy to spend the extra money because they feel that they're spending it on something that's pure." Cyrus has said her memoir will focus on "how important my relationship with my family is to me," and that she hopes "to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together." Del Colliano said she is likely to remain Disney's darling only so long as she remains young, cute and perfect. Miss Cyrus and her parents have let us all down. Whether they like it or not their daughter became a role model for young girls. Cyrus is one of the biggest — and most G-rated — acts in the country and is often considered a role model for young girls. Her "Best of Both Worlds" tour sold out arenas, and her successful 3-D concert film collected dllrrs31.3 million in its opening weekend in February.
Cyrus and Disney quickly issued statements that basically accused the magazine and Liebovitz of manipulating the young, innocent Cyrus. 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". Even Disney Channel released a statement saying: "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines."
Last fall, Disney Channel also faced some flak when a nude picture of High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens appeared on the Internet. Executives at the Disney Channel are said to be furious about the shot, which is a far cry from the star's usual squeaky-clean image.
"All stars are perishable and disposable. They do run some risks, that these young kids become big stars and cross over to the slutty side. They got to keep them pure for a while, at least in the minds of the parents," he said. Sternheimer added that the moment child stars seems to become "real people with real problems, we turn on them to say the very least, the spell is broken. Instead of the princess, they become the witch, if you use Disney terms." Most people knows what kind of photos Annie Leibovitz Annie Leibovitz does. I love her work, but she is known for being edgy and pushing the envelope not necessarily worried about being Disney friendly. The photos were taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz (who also photographed in 1991 a nude and pregnant Demi Moore).
As for the "artsy" photographer, the renowned Ms Leibovitz should also have known better than to coax the Lolita out of Hannah Montana. What's the big deal? She's a pretty young star who wants to break from the kiddie world of Hannah Montana. Face it, she's not going to be a child star forever.
Jimmy Fallon will soon be ready to sign on as Conan O'Brien's successor for his "Late Night" chair. Wouldn't he love to have little Miley Cyrus as his first guest? Or even Jennifer Aniston? They are Monday's pop three. Reports claim that NBC has already signed and inked a deal with Jimmy Fallon, or they are very close. That will put him back on the NBC network, as he will take over for Conan O'Brien who will take over for Jay Leno.  Yeah, we're basically saying that we want to see Miley Cyrus get apeshit drunk in a club apeshit drunk in a club. It's no wonder Miley Cyrus can't stop smiling. she's now officially the richest kid in the world. Hey, that hasn't stopped Miley Cyrus from apologising for it, the stupid teenage twit.
Things might get a little dangerous at the CMT Awards on Monday night with Billy Ray Cyrus and powerhouse daughter Miley Miley co-hosting.
The images show Cyrus draped over the lap of a former boyfriend, while another shows her revealing part of a green bra. "I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect," she said. "The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen, and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone. "Most of all," she said, "I have let myself down.
Last week, the album became available at all retailers and jumped from No. 31 to No. 3, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Disney Book Group announced last week that Cyrus would share her "inspiring" story, from her roots in Tennessee to hitting the big time, in a book due in 2009.  Another Disney girl gone "whore". This time her supposed Christian parents were there applauding it all.
At the very least, Ms. Cyrus and her advisers do not seem to be on the same page as Disney. The company learned of the photo only when "Entertainment Tonight" started showing its promos.  In the statement to People, Cyrus also addressed the recent photos that circulated on the Net. Cyrus issued a statement through PEOPLE stating "My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy.
Cyrus has also apologised over a second set of photos currently circulating on the internet.  Late last year, some candid photos of Cyrus frolicking with a female friend during a sleepover raised some eyebrows. She said at the time that there was "nothing wrong" with those photos. Media outlets, in particular the rabid celebrity-focused tabloids, have been pushing to capture new angles of the ubiquitous Ms. Cyrus. After popping up everywhere from the Academy Awards to "American Idol" in recent months, the only photos of her that are assured of selling are controversial ones. In one of the photos, Cyrus is shown from the side, with most of her back bare, clutching what appears to be a satin sheet loosely around herself. In another, she's draped over the lap of her dad, baring her midriff. An insider says Cyrus is positioned in a way where she appears to be topless. Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers was quick to speak in Cyrus' defense Cyrus' defense last week. "We're good friends of hers, and we got her back and we love her to death," Jonas told the satellite radio show "Yo on E!" "I think it's just the way you come out of it. As much as they say, no one's perfect and everybody makes their mistakes. I think it's the way you handle it and come out of it the proper and respectful way."
Cyrus projects that unaffectedness in real life as well. She also seems to have very clear ideas about things. Her focus and self-possession can be a bit scary. I ask a dumb questionI'm sorry, it's hard to interview a teenager; they're intimidatingabout whose career trajectory she'd like to follow. Her answer is a deft amalgam of showbiz savvy and girl-power mantra: "Before, I'd say like Hilary Duff"the star of Disney's Lizzie McGuire "or this person or that person. A motion picture is in the works for 2009 and Ms. Cyrus signed a seven-figure book deal with the Disney Book Group last week. Initially, Cyrus declared herself happy with the shot, declaring it "really artsy". She has had a change of heart now that the picture is in the public domain.
Omigod!!!!!!! Mileys gone crazy!!!!! First Vanessa and now this! Disney needs yo talk to their actresses about nude photos.  I would like to see FOX display that photo along side of another photo of Miley in a bathing suit and see which one is more reveiling. My daughter is a model and is the same age and my wife and I watch her closely. Wow, I thought her father was really managing her career well and keeping her squeaky clean. That she would do a photo shoot like this is bizarre. The problem is that it is a photo of a girl who is marketed as wholesome, and who is a celebrity, and who, to some degree, trades in innocence, much like Britney did. You should remove the photos immediately or risk being sued and/or labeled as child porn distributors. Just another joke of a celebrity that tried to tell use they are holsome and the girl next door, Just another slag trying to get money from use and ripping off her fans. She should be ashamed. We welcome your comments on this story. Comments are submitted for possible publication on the condition that they may be edited.
Well, not in the usual sense being indicated by the over-reactionary uproar. Her expression is not in any way sexually seductive or perverted. It is actually quite modest-- both Miley's demeanor in the photo, and in how much skin is exposed. Her chest and abdomen are completely covered by a sheet, revealing not even a hint of her breasts, nor so much as a belly button. "Kids are earning more and more and can command huge fees in Hollywood, but no one could have predicted how popular Miley would be. She's a true star," a Disney spokesman said. According to Disney, the book will feature never-before-seen photos, family stories and a look at the star's inner circle. Digital photography has made it harder than ever to keep some photos private. Sure, they make it easier to show everyone how fabulous your cruise was, but it only takes a few accidental clicks or a friend with a cruel sense of humor for your clothing optional pics to be added to an email. Before you know it, everyone and their sister are talking about what an exhibitionist you are. so how do you handle it? Personally, I'd take a page from the stars' books. They deal with it every day. One of the magazine photos shows the teenager wrapped in a blanket and apparently topless underneath.
I don't think the pics are all that bad, however from a Christian perspective the coy one of Miley wrapped in a blanket isn't any worse than the one with her mini dress on and doin what can be deemed a rebellious hand signal. She is a stunning young woman and so will be the victim of judgement and small mindeness. To me if she has a positive influence in our young people and a positive outlook and keeps short accounts of her slip ups (if these are one) then ALL GOOD.  Meanwhile fans are cheering for yet another unconfirmed romance for Jennifer Aniston, this time with singer and guitarist John Mayer. The two were spotted in Miami this weekend and all kinds of witnesses are willing to spill on the secrets of the date secrets of the date. They seem like an odd couple, but many will still be cheering for Jennifer.
