Miley Cyrus Tells Real Story of Controversial Vanity Fair Cover

Miley Cyrus Reveals Why Filming

Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

Miley Cyrus is taking a trashing ball to the critics of her 2008 Vanity Fair cover.

As part of her continuous “Used to Be Young” TikTok series in assistance of her tune by the exact same name, the vocalist reviewed her then-controversial cover in which the then-15- year-old postured topless, covered by a blanket.

“We gotta go there—2008,” she stated in her Aug 30 TikTok. “Everyone knows the controversy of the photo, but they don’t really know the behind-the-scenes, which is always much more meaningful.”

As Miley, now 30, remembered, her household had actually been with her on the set. In truth, her then-8-year-old sis Noah Cyrus had actually been resting on professional photographer Annie Leibovitz‘s lap “pushing the button of the camera taking the pictures.” The Disney alum then shared more about the thought-process behind the picture.

“This was the very first time I ever used red lipstick since Pati Dubroff, who did my makeup, believed that that would be another component that would divide me from Hannah Montana,” she included. “This image of me as a complete opposite of the bubblegum pop star that I had been known for being and that’s what was so upsetting. But really, really brilliant choices looking back now from those people.”
