Miley Cyrus does a revealing photoshoot for V Mag: trashy, sexy or silly?

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus covers the June issue of V magazine with three different covers, and the first instance (shown above) features Miley well on the way to giving herself a front wedgie while sporting boy-cut underwear … although I suspect those would be some really cool boots if we could fully see them. Really, this photoshoot is kind of a nightmare from a PR standpoint. Don’t get me wrong, Miley’s face looks great, but she’s flashing some major crack (don’t worry, it’s blurred out) in one of the editorial shots, and this development comes hot on the heels of Miley’s judgy declaration in Elle UK that “A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power.” Oops.

Meanwhile, Miley is still talking up her relationship with Liam in this interview, which leads me to believe that perhaps she gave a lot of publicity while she and Liam were still up in the air. Of course, they’re probably still undecided on the fate of their nuptuals (those crazy kids), but I’m of the opinion that they’re truly on the rocks and just can’t admit it to each other. As such, Miley is making a fool of herself taking about how wonderful her relationship with Liam really is (while he says nothing), and she insists that they just haven’t had the time for a photo op lately because she’s so busy being all about the music (as opposed to Liam being busy making repeat visits to January Jones’ house). Here are some interview excerpts:

Miley Cyrus

On her love life: “I’m not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work. Every week it’s ‘Are they broken up?’ Because we don’t see a photo of them.’ I don’t have time go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don’t. I’d rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him. And then I’m at the studio all day. He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio. I put this record before everything, and I’ve never done that with anything. I’ve put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it.”

On her new sound: “I can never say that I don’t love ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ and that I’m not appreciative of it. It would like my dad saying that he hated ‘Achy Breaky.’ It’s what gives you everything that you have. I would never take it back.”

On her changing style: “I’m going to change, I’m going to be different, I’m going to do what I want to do. I chopped my hair and bought a pair of Docs and never looked back.”

[From V Magazine]

Poor Miley. And I’m not even saying that in a facetious manner — I truly think that she believes that her new music will take the entire world by storm when we all know that it will simply be a mediocre affair. Obviously, she and Liam are having problems, and she’s throwing herself into work. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. Liam will show his true colors sooner or later, and Miley may as well make some headway before that happens. For the record, I hope she proves me wrong and makes some amazing music instead of merely showing her ass crack just like the pop stars that she makes fun of. Miley is better than that even if she doesn’t realize it.

    I may be alone but I find this to be sexy.

  2. Summer says:

    Ugh. Stupid poses, awkward try hard pics.

  3. momosays says:

    The new hair does her no justice- not with those cheeks.

  4. serena says:

    Horrible photoshoot, I don’t know what they were thinking when they did that mess.
    She seems desperate, I hate to say it because I like Miley, but she’s conducting herself the wrong way. I hope she’ll come to her sense soon.

  5. Felicia says:

    I have such a soft spot for her but ABSOLUTELY SILLY.

  6. Jaded says:

    Vulgar. Pathetic. It doesn’t matter how much money and fame she has, she’s still trailer trash.

  7. Keats says:

    I am so distracted by her airbrushed knees on that cover.

  8. Anna says:

    Am I the only person still naive (delusional?) enough to hope that Liam is a nice guy and those two will work it out? I dont even know why I care, bc I never cared about either of them individually.

  9. mkyarwood says:

    Does she have to pee? She’s pulling on those thousand dollar underoos pretty hard.

  10. DanaG says:

    Try hard springs to mind. You shouldn’t need to work so hard to be sexy and edgy if comes across as fake. I don’t have high hopes for her music she doesnt have the best voice her attitude sucks. Liam just needs to get out.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. If “edgy” was a part of her bag of tricks, she wouldn’t have to be trying this hard. This just looks silly.

      And I don’t have hopes for her music either, her voice isn’t well suited to anything but country because of her natural twang. I think she could actually do really well if she just went full on country.

    • Liv says:

      I’d totally understand if he wanted out, because this photo shoot shows a girl who doesn’t even know herself. She tries this new persona to break free from her old image, but it’s obviously not her and it’s pretty sad.

  11. Jade says:

    Just NO! This girl is just not attractive. Liam can do so much better!

  12. Mia 4S says:

    But @Bedhead she’s NOT “better than that”, that’s the whole problem. She’s the same as the rest of them, with less natural talent and charisma than several of them. She has to hustle. It all seems so forced and TRY, it’s uncomfortable.

  13. Pixie says:

    Um…I just don’t get what’s happening with the whole pulling up the pants giving herself a wedgie look.
    Give it up, Miley. I used to like her but she’s become somewhat desperate recently.

  14. Adrien says:

    She looks like a cross between Susan Powter and Lori Petty in ‘Tank Girl’. The photoshoot styling is actually superb and I love Miley but she has no sex-appeal in the pictures. I think it’s her Roxette hair.

  15. Lemony says:

    Like all the poptarts before her, we all knew this kind of photoshoot was inevitable.
    I do wish her well (I think she has a good heart) but she wants to think she is just do damn unique & she is following the same path that all the popgirls do. Nothing different here.

  16. carol says:

    it might be just me but there are so many beautiful women in holly wood and Miley is not one of them. She has a great body but her face isn’t even pretty. She’s just like… not ugly. And she seems annoyingly immature, silly, and self-absorbed :/

    just me?

  17. jojo says:

    didnt she just have another interview where she said she didnt want people to focus on her body, but her talent? Then she releases these lame ass pics. What a hypocrit.

    Everything about her screams trailer-trash.

    what is it with these disney idiots that makes them go all crazy around 20ish?

    • TheOneAndOnly says:

      They go this route because they have no talent, and they won’t put in the hours everyday to improve what little talent they have – they are too busy tweeting and doing crap like this;
      V has had some great covers, can we please use legit fashion models, they are out there,
      All i can say is her pr team is dumping loads of cash to keep her in the limelight, but she’s over.

  18. teehee says:

    Ok, so nearly msot kids can go through and awkward looking phase while growing, or, dont look beautiful fro day one— BUT, nothing is being proven to anything or anyone, when a (was) childstar decides to one day pose in their underwear. it doesnt mean theya re sexy, doesnt mean they are beautiful, doesnt mean they are grown up- its just proves that anyone can pose inunderwear in front of a camera and have it CALLED “sexy/attractive”– ….doesnt mean that it IS….

  19. Hope says:

    I definitely vote for silly. I just saw little Hannah Montana with a shaved head trying to act like a big girl in a big girl photo shoot and… yeah. I’m going with epic fail on this one. And what on god’s green earth is making that girl give herself wedgies with those y-fronts? Seriously, all I see is a little girl who doesn’t want to wear her undies.

  20. janie says:

    What is up with her? Do Playboy and get it over with. She is just another attractive girl in a business where they are a dime a dozen. Her voice is so-so? Tween hit & that’s it, period.

  21. Skipper says:

    I love Miley pics but some of these are ugh. The pic in the jeans is fine, front wedgy is gross.

  22. Annie says:

    Trashy indeed. And somehow I don’t buy this persona. You’re a rich Disney girl, who you think you foolin’??

    But seriously. She needs to let go of Liam already. The denial here. This guy has checked out emotionally a long time ago. He doesn’t want you anymore, Miley! Their relationship reminds me of Britney and Kevin, when Britney desperately needed something to make her feel grounded and normal, so she hung on to Kevin and even proposed to him. I have no doubt in my mind, Miley is doing the exact same thing and she even proposed to Liam, I bet. The difference here is that Liam is not a loser and actually has his own career, so he doesn’t need her. Miley might actually hold him back if he’s not careful.

    She needs to understand that they’re so young, the odds of them staying together are very slim. Liam is what? 23? No 23 year old guy, in Hollywood no less, wants to get married.

    Let it go, girl.

  23. anneesezz says:

    I guess she no longer wants to be a role model for young girls.

  24. Sal says:

    Poor girl, she’s making a fool of herself

  25. HH says:

    A pairs if “Docs”? I assume she means Doc Martins which sounds like she was study the 80s/90s rulebook of “How to be Punk.” The short hair is cute on her but she has too much of a baby face to truly look “edgy.” Well that and once you hear her voice you will always think typical suburban teen.

  26. Eleonor says:

    I find all of this sad.
    She is another starlette chewed by the Industry: she had her moment,but now it’s over. Unfortunately she doesn’t have the talent to survive HM, but I don’t know if she is a good actress.
    The best I can say at least she hasn’t turned out a mess like Lindsay Lohan (but Lindsay could act)

  27. Stefanie says:

    Oh God, this looks like a mess of everything that was wrong with the 90s. When did Miley Cyrus become Bridgette Neilson’s child?

  28. lisa says:

    trying too hard party of 1

    the pics arent good, they remind me of the early 80s and glamour shots in the mall – that part is not her fault

    will these gigantic caps ever settle in or does she need a new set to look less like a beaver?

  29. Barrett says:

    I am sad. I have a bad feeling about her. Try hard.

  30. allons-y alonso says:

    i think i just threw up in my mouth a little bit

  31. lucy2 says:

    I vote trashy, and I don’t know why she feels she needs to do stuff like that – she’s famous, she’s insanely wealthy, she doesn’t need to stoop to the attention getting tactics other starlets do.
    It seems like she’s trying to find herself, which is good, but it stinks she’s doing it SO publicly.
    And I think she’s a fool for that guy, and he’s stringing her along while having his fun too.

  32. JudyK says:

    She’s beautiful and what a body, but these pictures are trashy to me.

    Wish she didn’t try so hard.

  33. Tania says:

    Trashy and disgusting. Not fashion forward at all.

  34. The Original Original says:

    she looks completely hideous here…just awful. Not good if she is trying to keep a certain someone interested. I know if I was Liam and on the fence about her this would send me running….

  35. Nicolette says:

    She looks likes she’s trying really hard to create some camel toe. And the bare butt pic, please. Why do so many young celebs think they have to expose everything as some pathetic way of saying ‘look I’ve grown up’? Leave something to the imagination, it’s so much more mature and sexier.

  36. liz_bee says:

    Her face is so dead. In every shot. I don’t think the photographer even cared about her face.

  37. chria says:

    i hate to use a jersey shore term but she has became a “Butterface” at this point. her hairstyle might fit some, but it doesnt fit her at all. it makes her look like a boy! the you look at her body and you then get confused…well at least im confused anyway lol..

  38. bns says:

    I actually don’t mind the try hardness because lots of young girls try way too hard until they know better, but she is not sexy at all. She has such a weird baby face and can’t pull this off.

  39. HouseofBeatrix says:

    I just can’t look at her face straight on. She has a stunning profile, but her face bugs the hell out of me.

  40. mel says:

    Amazing figure…wow. I like her..she is harmless..I thought she was funny on her show…she is not out getting trashed every night. I say go for all the experiences and different looks you can while you are young.

  41. Ash says:

    Anyone else think “Marvin” when they saw those wedgie pics? She looks like a fool.

  42. madpoe says:

    Silly. Tastless. Uninspired.
    Go home. Punch Face.

  43. Shelly says:

    Her body is amazing, but those boys’ underwear do nothing for her.

  44. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Miley, P!nk called and said to stop jackin’ her hair style. Seriously, it just doesn’t work for you.

    And a massive +1 to those who say she’s looking mighty Susan Powter/Tank Girlish. Only they do it better.

  45. Glaughy says:

    I feel indifferent to Miley and the photoshoot but I gotta say I love those boy-undies… I have a couple of pairs myself (in neon yellow and seafoam) from American Apparel. Woooo

  46. diva says:

    There is nothing sexy about this girl. This looks like a shoot Britney and Christina would have done years ago and it may have been hot c/ they could pull it off. Miley looks like she’s playing dress up.

  47. Me Three says:

    Too funny. She’s like some little girl dressing up in her mommy’s clothes…way too try hard and it makes her look ridiculous.

  48. Jolene says:

    Honestly, I think a lot of these photos are weird. Why is she wearing men’s underwear?

  49. I Choose Me says:

    I believe in women owning their sexuality but I’m so so tired of women being reduced to just that in magazines. These pics are tacky and kinda try-hard and frankly un-sexy, the opposite of what they were going for. Add in the overzealous photoshopping (what people don’t have armpits now?) and I vote this shoot a big fat fail.

    Miley’s a cute young lady with a great body and deserves so much better than this.

  50. EG says:

    Miley is cute but she has no talent and no charisma. Her singing voice is truly horrible. So posing hard in terrible outfits with a wretched haircut is really all she’s got at this point. Luckily she still has tweener fans who look up to her and think she’s cool…but they’re delusional.

  51. Lucy says:

    I hate to say this ’cause I actually like her, but it just feels so wrong. Of course, she grew up, but her face looks exactly the same as when she was on Disney. She crossed the line between sexy and trashy, all while trying too hard (imo)…

  52. Jen34 says:

    I hate when young girls show skin. Exploiting your body for your career is unnecessary unless you have nothing more to offer. If your music is so great, Hon, then please put on some pants.

  53. Deedee says:

    She just strikes me as an exhibitionist. I don’t see how these pictures are relevant to her music, but then again, I don’t find her music relevant irregardless of which rapper’s CD she’s on. And the men’s underwear— stupid. Might as well be on her head. Definitely not sexy.

  54. minamka says:

    Pathetic and trashy.. Is this what she called being in control and doing whatever she wants. Looks more like being a media and Hollywood slave and throwing away her pride and dignity for money, fame and a little attention… I give you an advice Miley: leave as fast as u can and never look back. With the money you have try to live a normal life and have a career away from this trashy music industry who exploits young women and make them look like you do right now on the cover of this magazine.

    • blaize says:

      Why is it that when sexy male celebrities and models strut around topless in low-slung pants, pose in their underwear, or go naked, people calmly accept it, but when the females pose nude or semi-nude, it’s painted as ‘exploitation’, and her ‘being a slave’, as if she’s a poor little victim who can’t make choices?

      I say there’s nothing wrong with nudity/partial nudity, whether the subject is male or female. Of course, this is coming from a girl who was writing smutty short stories in eighth grade. What can I say?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I have yet to see a male celeb give himself a frontal wedgie and/or pull down his underwear so you can see his butt crack. Male celebs get to keep their pants on in most photo shoots.

        But if you have examples, I would love to see them.

      • jaye says:

        There’s a pic of Channing Tatum standing in a shower or something in his tighty whiteys soaking wet. It leaves little to the imagination. There are also pics of Ryan Kwanten from True Blood bare-assed on a surf board. All those pictures of Mark Wahlberg in his undies when he was Marky Mark. David Beckham posed in just his undies. There were pics of Eminem early in his career where he posed naked with just his hands covering his bidness. I’m sure there are more examples.

      • blaize says:

        And let’s not forget Adam Levine going completely naked in that video. (Not that I’m complaining. He’s hot).

  55. Talie says:

    I think she’ll just be a perma-celebrity. Someone people are interested in forever due to a high-profile youth in the spotlight.

  56. ladybert62 says:

    I think this just totally sunk any hopes she had for marriage with Liam – I dont think he wants his wife in all her “glory” to be seen by the world.

  57. blaize says:

    Try-hard? Of course it is. But it also has a silly vibe to it.

    The sight of a celebrity nude or semi-nude never sparks outrage in me or makes me call them trash. You can show me a photo of ANY adult celebrity naked or nearly naked and I’d be totally fine with it. Why? Because I’m totally cool with it and I think our society should be tolerant of the naked human body. Does that mean I think we should all run around butt-naked? No. My social conditioning runs too deep for me to be THAT tolerant, although I have no problem with anyone who’s in a nudist colony. But I think we should all be able to look at a picture of an adult celebrity nearly naked without calling the person names. Come on, now.

    Also, I noticed that some people are playing the disney card, which I see as a myth. Their are plenty of non-disney celebrities (think Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Rihana) who wear revealing outfits and pose nearly naked. If they can do it, why can’t Britney, Christina, and Miley? Why does their doing the same have to be attributed to some disney thing?

    My vote is for try-hard and silly- as in harmless fun.

  58. Ginger says:

    I really like Miley but WTH is with this photo shoot? Coming from a photographer…she looks like crap (through no fault of her own because she is a beautiful girl) the outfits suck, the angles are unflattering, the makeup is hideous…all WRONG!

  59. novaraen says:

    So not cute…or hot…or sexy…just YUCK!!

  60. Jade says:

    I suspect this is one photo shoot that the styling team tried to pitch in theory well but in execution failed. When listening to it, perhaps Miley thought it sounded great but she grew more uncomfortable and hesitant (look at that face). Maybe she just went along with it and prayed it would turn out well. Anyway, it really is trashy!!

  61. Rachel says:

    Why does she keep trying to give herself a wedgie? I thought people tried to avoid that.

    I dislike this photoshoot. I love her body, don’t like her face and usually think she’s quite trashy.

  62. HappyJoyJoy says:

    I think she looks gorgeous.

  63. Lexi says:

    Sooooo trashy, those photos are sooooo unattractive

  64. lisa2 says:

    She is young. I rather see her posing this way then the 30 or 40 year old actresses doing it all the time. She is trying hard. But that is what you do in your twenties. She is finding herself like we all did; in different ways. I see lots of women older trying so hard to be sexy in pics, and it just ain’t there. I think the pic in the jeans is sexy. It would have been more so without the hand on the boob.

    Regarding her and Liam… the bloom may have worn off. the reality of being in a relationship and working could have hit them. It happens to everyone. Even couples much older.

    The boys underwear thing is old. I remember Cameron Diaz wearing them in Charlie’s Angel and everyone was crazy about it and thought it was super sexy. The ones Miley are wearing are too big. It would have worked with a smaller size pair.

    I don’t know is Liam is a “nice guy”.. I just recall seeing him be violent with the paps and getting in fights. He seemed at that time to overreact, but it could have been the newness of being followed.

    they have time to grow up. I think they are too young to marry now anyway. JMO.

  65. Cece says:

    her face does not match her body – it’s like it was added in later.

    for that reason, I don’t care for the photoshoot. sexy requires more than a good body – it requires confidence and charisma, and she has neither. she’s just a little girl playing grown-up. maybe with some age and experience she could pull this off.

  66. Asdfg says:

    I wish these actresses and actors would stick with ACTING! Not “trying” to make music! Same goes for singers!


    These people think that just because they have a talent for one thing they must have talent for ALL things! Nope! She models better than she can sing! Stick with modeling and acting Miley! That’s what you’re good at!

    Thanks CB for blurring the crack pic! The pulling the underwear pics are hysterical! What’s she trying to do? Give herself a wedgie? o-O

    No words!!!!

  67. Kosmos says:

    Ohhhhh, GAWD, cough…cough, she’s soooo try hard, wow. Miley must be a confirmed extrovert. She just has to put herself out there, but in a tasteless way. Pulling on those boy panties is super bad, as are a few other of the pics. She must see herself as a super sexy babe, but I just see a very young woman who is constantly trying to reinvent herself and really doesn’t have the real appeal she thinks she has, sad….I don’t know much about Liam, but these two should totally avoid marriage for the next few years, at least !!

  68. jes_sayin says:

    It’s just so cliche.. Disney child star -> sex kitten. And it’s all down hill from there.

  69. Jennifer12 says:

    My eight year old daughter and I were at a pizza parlor and she saw Miley’s pictures in The Daily News. She shook her head and said, “Mama, she used to be the best singer on Disney Channel. Now? What happened to her? Why is she naked?” Which pretty much sums Miley up to me.

  70. Memphis says:

    HATE the weird ass underwear shots but I actually really love her hair here, and I’m usually not a fan.

  71. kitty bye says:

    I think she looks great even though I want to hold my hand up as to not see anything below the neck lol. Awful mantIES

  72. ??? says:

    Is she TRYING to give herself camel toe in pics 1 & 5?!

    OK, I’m done here.

  73. kit says:

    she is not attractive in the least… what is that hot ass guy doing with this skank?

  74. SydneySpy says:

    Dear Miley,

    I think, underneath it all, you are a good and sweet person. So….
    1. Ditch Liam. It’s just not happening. You know it. We all know it.
    2. Take a break. Lay low for a while.
    3. Go back to school. Acting school, if that’s what you really want to do. If not, or you are yet unsure, go back to real school. Learn some real stuff. Mix and engage with real people. Jodie Foster (and other girls) did it, so can you.
    4. Cover up. Keep your bits to and for yourself.
    5. This is not the way to achieve greatness.

    A Caring Mum.

  75. xoxokaligrl says:

    Straight butterface. The short hair emphasizes how close her eyes are together. Glad she got her gums fixed though. And her body is hot.

  77. SCREEEE says:

    I’d take her at her word: stars don’t *need* to strip off. But can choose to. I mean, the girl is undeniably a star despite a couple of quiet years. And I wouldn’t be so quick to judge the new music; Pharrell is a big, talented industry figure with a global no.1 THIS WEEK, he wouldn’t throw his weight this hard behind a dying project.

    I just find myself enjoying her more and more as she grows up, and all this predicting / hoping for her failure seems so unnevessary. Non?
