Miley Cyrus apologizes for racy photo spread 少女偶像孟漢娜為半裸照致歉

In this Feb. 24, 2008, file photo, Miley Cyrus arrives at the 80th Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.


Miley Cyrus said she’s embarrassed by an apparently racy photo spread appearing in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.

“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,” Cyrus said in a statement through her publicist.

The photos, by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, were taken to accompany an interview with the 15-year-old pop star and her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus. They include shots of the teen reportedly topless and wrapped in a blanket.

The Disney Channel, which airs Cyrus’ TV show Hannah Montana, was also critical of Vanity Fair.

“Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines,” a network statement said.

A phone message left for a Vanity Fair representative was not immediately returned. But in a statement to the TV show Entertainment Tonight, Vanity Fair defended 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.”

Cyrus is one of the biggest — and most wholesome — 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 US$31.3 million (NT$950 million) in its opening weekend in February.(AP)




Luke: What do you think of the new Miley Cyrus photos?

Rose: I think they were well done. I’m not sure why everybody is making such a big deal about them.

Luke: Well when I look at the pics, all I can think of is...

Rose: I don’t want to hear it! You got to get your mind out of the gutter.

Luke: I was just going to say that all I can think of when I see the photos is that I need to get my little sister a birthday present. She’s a huge Miley fan.






get one’s mind out of the gutter 別想歪了

A person who needs to get his mind out of the gutter needs to stop thinking about sex. The phrase is usually used as a suggestion to somebody who sees something in a sexual light when others don’t.

若說某人需要「get his mind out of the gutter」,表示他應該要停止往性方面想;當別人都沒有把某件事與性聯想時,這個片語就可以用來暗示想到的人不要想歪了。
