Annie Leibovitz Miley Cyrus Nude Photo Vanity Fair Magazine Statement

Legendary celebrity snapper Annie Leibovitz has issued a statement defending her near nude photo of Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus in the June issue of Vanity Fair Magazine.

“I’m sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted,” Annie Leibovitz said in a statement on Monday. “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.”
