Miley Cyrus has rescinded an apology she made 10 years ago for a nearly-nude photo shoot she did with Vanity Fair when she was 15-years-old.
The photos taken by Annie Leibovitz – which show Miley seemingly nude with a bed sheet wrapped around her – were met with controversy at the time with many saying the magazine had “sexualised” the young Disney star.
“I feel so embarrassed I never intended any of this to happen,” the Hannah Montana star wrote to her fans at the time.
Well now, Miley is ready to retract her apology.
Writing “I’M NOT SORRY” and “F**ck YOU” (sic) on her Twitter along with an archived front cover of the New York Post which splashed ‘Miley’s Shame’ across its front page.
The conversation around sexualisation of young models is still a prevalent one: just recently Kaia Gerber found herself in controversy after the 16-year-old posed in a mini dress lying on a chaise longne for Chanel.
And then there’s Thylane Blondeau, arguably the face of child model sexualisation who caused uproar when she wore heels and a full face of makeup as a 10-year-old girl.
But while there’s still lots that is up for debate, doesn’t a headline taking of Miley’s ‘shame’ send a message to young girls that they don’t have ownership over their own bodies and their sexuality?
We’re glad she retracted her apology. Go, Miley.
