Miley Cyrus left childhood, Hannah Montana, and her clothes behind when she became an adult. Miley’s nudity, while shocking in the beginning, has become her thing now. We’ll get into it later but she’s actually been teasing her nudity since she was younger during her Disney days.
When did Miley’s Nude Streak Begin?
Before she was stripping down to sell records, Miley was caught up in a nude photo scandal when she was only fifteen. The first set of leaked photos came as a result of a MySpace. There were quite a few photos released including near-nude selfies and even ones of her snuggled up with some guy. The hacker that stole the second set of photos said they were discovered in an email exchange between Miley and Nick Jonas.
What is most interesting about the timing of the leak of these personal photos is that they came during the same year and very shortly before a now infamous photoshoot with famed photographer, Annie Leibovitz. On the cover for the Vanity Fair spread, Miley posed topless with her back completely exposed.
While the photo may seem innocent enough, Miley was embarrassed:
"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."
Annie Leibovitz responded saying:
"I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted. Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together, and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful."
