Miley Cyrus lost her Vogue cover because of her raunchy VMA act

Miley Cyrus

This is a photo of Miley Cyrus on the German TV show “Schlag den Raab” where she performed “We Can’t Stop” with a band full of little people. If you’re curious, EW.com has video of the act. I think this performance was supposed to be shocking. Miley is wearing Tom Ford and vintage Chanel to continue working her “white trash and Chanel” vibe. She’s only pulling off the “trashy.”

Now onto slightly more interesting fare. Late last week, Lainey posted a blind item that seemed to point towards Miley losing a much coveted Vogue cover. This is a believable story as it follows the lead-up with Miley scoring a September couture spread for Harper’s Bazaar. Yes that spread was shot by Terry Richardson and looked like a bad R. Kelly video, but it increased Miley’s fashion portfolio. That shoot — along with Miley’s punky win at the Met Gala — convinced Anna Wintour to give Miley a shot. Now we have confirmation via The Mail’s Sunday diary that Miley was scheduled for the December Vogue cover. She did the shoot and everything. But it’s all over now. Thanks to Miley’s VMA twerking, Wintour is reshooting with another model:

Miley Cyrus’s crude dance at the MTV Video Music Awards has cost her the coveted cover slot on American Vogue.

The 20-year-old, right, was photographed for the December issue as editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had been eager to champion her as a new fashion icon.

But she soon changed her mind after witnessing the singer perform her overtly sexual routine in latex bra and knickers.

“Anna found the whole thing distasteful,” a source says. “She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.”

[From Daily Mail]

Man, this doesn’t look good for Miley. Both of her major chart rivals of the moment, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, have each done their own Vogue covers. Miley was playing out of her league, but Anna was willing to give Miley a shot. Yet Miley preferred to make momentary history with a quick attention grab. Too bad.

Meanwhile, Miley is still twerking it up with this caption to one of her Facebook photos: “I always knew I’d see my name in lights.” Miley doesn’t care that you’re talking badly about her. All she wants is for you to keep talking. Richard Simmons says Miley just “needs to be loved.” Are you still listening, Liam Hemsworth?

    I don’t think she is going to age well. That’s all I have this morning.

    Trying so hard to be Rihanna 2.0..and failing.

    • Frankie says:

      If you consider Rihanna trashy…well then yeah. But if she’s trying to be Rihanna, going by Miley’s actions that’s more of an insult to Rihanna than Miley.

    • Rumorhasit says:

      She has no talent whatsoever to pull off anything Rhiannaesque, that’s for sure.
      But I wonder if Miley or her management has realized that, and are now experimenting with what the public will tolerate from a performer.
      I think Miley may well be a performance troll….her “performance” doesn’t matter, per say, it’s the response it generates. Much like trolls on any internet site, they cant always mean the frighteningly ignorant, immature, thoughtless or hateful comments they make, But trolls Release those ideas out there, step back and gleefully wait for the fallout, when it comes. Much like most of what Miley’s doing these days.
      Doesn’t matter if people get it, or agree with it, or are entertained – they just want you talking about it. And we are, aren’t we?

    • luffy says:

      a big difference is that rhianna is largely seen as “tortured artist” type and people feel bad for her because they think she has a lot of inner turmoil. miley is thought of as a ditzy tween. so no matter how hard she tries to be like rhianna, she just looks foolish. not that riri never comes off as foolish herself.

      • Hakura says:

        @Luffy – I agree, that bc of Miley’s upbringing, childhood (& majorly successful childhood career), people are far less likely to buy the ‘inner turmoil’ from her, w/the exception of ‘Oh no, I broke up w/my BF! I’m torn up inside, life is OVER‘.

        Not to say there’s no serious problems outside of those presented in a lot of rap/hip-hop. Just that she doesn’t have the cred to back it up when she tries to use it in her lyrics.

        Rihanna may not either, I don’t know, I can’t stand the person she’s become.Shes a drunk drug-addled disgrace.

  3. brin says:

    Guess things aren’t twerking out for her.

  4. kat says:

    i was searching so hard for this blind yesterday! glad you posted it.

    i knew it was miley, but had assumed it was a playboy cover, and didn’t consider vogue. yikes!

  5. Evyn says:

    Too bad. Now she doesn’t have to hear/read a bunch of remarks about how she doesn’t belong on the cover.

  6. Willa says:

    The drums are ruined! I wanna walk by and kick that awful drawn on face in!

  7. Bridget says:

    I just want to shake her. Yes, people are talking about Miley… but you notice that the one thing they’re not actually talking about is her music? She’s on the path to sell her singles now, but to become a joke in the long run.

  8. ncmagnolia says:

    Fabulous news, actually. This trashy, hillbilly brat doesn’t deserve to be on the hallowed cover of US Vogue. Glad Nuclear Wintour finally saw the light.

  9. Michelle says:

    OK, so what’s with the tongue? I don’t get it.

  10. Jaded says:

    Anna, best move EVAR! Now let Miley spiral down into nothing more relevant than a pole stripper.

    • TG says:

      I think it is at least equal to Anna clipping Kim Kartrashian’s pic on the best dressed list after the met Gala. Of course that was after she had Kanye’s BFF Ricardo Tiscci dress her in a couch covering. I actually think the Kartrashian snub might be better than the Miley snub. The fact that they were even considering putting Miley, a drug supporter, on the cover show them to be incompetent. I think Anna has lost her credibility these days. Something tells me that Kim might get her Vogue piece after all one day. If not the cover than definitely a nice spread inside.

  11. Evelyn says:

    Ugh, this girl is a perpetual 15 year old. You can just tell by the way she talks and acts, she wants attention and to be taken seriously but she just keeps making herself a bigger joke. She’s just embarrassing to watch as someone who’s her age, I would never dream of acting like that, I refuse to give her the “she’s young” pass, even though I used to stick up for her. Now I look a fool!
    Side note, has anyone ever seen the snl skit where Will Ferrell is Robert Goulet and he’s promoting his cd “coconut bangers ball” and he insults black people, rappers and their music? When I heard she called her cd bangerz, that’s what came straight to mind

  12. Maya Memsaab says:

    Is there any group of people on this planet she won’t use as accessories for her “performances”?

    I don’t like Cyrus being Slut-shamed but people need to stop talent-shaming her as well. There is no need to accuse her of singing and dancing that night. Stop the talent shaming when she clearly has none.

  13. Eleonor says:

    Larry Rudolph ehm Miley should have taken some notes from Lady Gaga attention grab years: she used all the tricks in the book and now no one is paying attention to her. Miley isn’t even near to Lady Gaga fame, is using all the tricks and she hasn’t even a Vogue cover….

  14. stinky says:

    all that money, and she opts for a grill over braces.

  15. Greata says:

    The problem with this girl is that she is more gawky than sexy. Does she not have ‘people” who recognize this train wreck for what it is?

  16. Shannon says:

    No vogue cover…big surprise.

  17. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She is ruining teddy bears for me.

  18. Saffron says:

    Wow…. she incorporated “little people” into her performance? I’m thinking she is perpetually 12 years old.

    • siobhan says:

      I think she is perpetually unoriginal. A band ( blink 182 I think) had a performance with little people at the VMAs several years ago. I guess it goes to show how pointless going for shock value is when I remember the little people but can’t be sure about the band or song.

      • Saffron says:

        I actually remember that Blink 102 performance. I think they were doing “All the Small Things”, and used little people. Nothing that Miley does seems fresh, original, genuine or in good taste…and using people as props..VMAs and now this…it’s obvious that she is extremely immature and not very bright.

  19. The Original G says:

    The fact that Wintour ever thought Miley should go on her cover shows how out of touch she is with the younger generations.

    The fact that she’s pulled her does the same.

    • Another Ann says:

      I can’t believe Anna would have ever considered her for the cover. She’s famously avoided putting Posh on the cover, even though she has a legitimate presence in the fashion world. But she’d put Miley on it?

      • LAK says:

        ….but she’s never put a designer on the cover. be it Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren or Marc Jacobs or any of her pet designers and whether Posh likes it or not, she’s a designer now.

        Edna Mode likes to highlight either Models or Singers or Actresses or sports personality with the occasional first lady or Oprah on the cover….Posh is none of those things. she’s a designer now, so she goes into the pages, but not the cover.

        And as much as she likes to forget it, Posh already has a cover. January 1998 when she was a Spice girl AKA a singer, so Edna Mode is only going about her usual business.

        If Posh wants a cover so badly, she better take up performing again. Then she’ll be on that cover pronto.

      • The Original G says:

        Vogue is dead. It has been for sometime.

        It’s not a tastemaker anymore and it’s not even willing to take a little heat. I’m not a Miley fan or in that demographic but Anna could have taken the tack of showing us what she saw in her, for better or worse.

        The September Vogue is just a big ad catalougue. The rest is so old.

      • littlestar says:

        Original G – couldn’t agree with you more! Vogue has become a shadow of what it used to be.

      • The Original G says:

        @littestar. Am I the only one that used to read it for the articles?

        Ans believe or not, Vogue needs a Miley(or some such) more that Miley needs Vogue.

      • Shoe_Lover says:

        Original G- I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Anna Wintour needs to step down and Grace Coddington needs to be made editor. Coddington is the best part of Vogue now

  20. Cirque28 says:

    I can’t believe how quickly she has saturated us with her message of Chanel & trash, bangerz, twerking, hardcore, bears, here’s my tongue in case you forgot my signature move, here’s my butt in case you forgot my other signature move…

    http://theweek.com/article/index/238306/why-repeating-your-message-isnt-the-same-as-staying-on-message

  21. Tiffany says:

    Yet, Victoria Beckham cannot get a cover. I am kind of at at a lost for Anna Nuclear thinking on this one.

  22. Lucia says:

    Oh my god – just stick that stupid tongue back in your mouth!

  23. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    Her tongue sticking out like that all the time makes her look like a iguana trying to catch dinner…..She is repulsive but she knows her star is falling since her Hannah Montana days and she is willing to do anything to stay in the limelight….She’s not trying to shake the Hannah Montana image. about now she’s wishing she had it back….cause she’s gone from a little girls dream heroine to a little girls nightmare……and she is also another victim of that soul sucker Terry Richardson…..every one who has even been exposed to that man loses their soul …and they come out dead eyed like she is…Or Lindsay Lohan his past model of youth …or so many of the young people in Hollywood….I swear that man is the head of the Devils soul stealing group….look how many he has ruined……

  24. The Original G says:

    Yeah. The sky is falling.

  25. phaksi says:

    Miley covering Vogue?! Anna Wintour is letting just anyone there now. And yet Victoria Beckham has been campaigning for years to get the cover

  26. Cristina says:

    OK..her new video is out & she is naked & licking a hammer…Let the controversy continue for ever and ever.

  27. NerdMomma says:

    F— Vogue. F— Liam. This is getting beyond the beyond. Using black dancers as props, using little people for “shock” value… I don’t understand who is letting this happen. Little people are people, and it’s totally cool to hire dancers without discrimination, but having entire group of little people means Miley intentionally sought out little people and USED them. I don’t understand why. What do people in the entertainment industry think of little people? That they are toys? I’m disgusted.

  28. TG says:

    I don’t understand why someone with absolutely no a** to shake would try to make twerking their thing. I am not saying that if you don’t have curves you can’t dance but if you don’t have anything to shake you shouldn’t try to center your show around your non-existent rear.

  29. qtpi says:

    I’m blown away by how she has morphed into a totally different person in just a few short months.

    Hollywood – a completely different universe.

  30. TheTruthHurts says:

    She is gross. I’m surprised she didn’t have one of the little people simulate oral sex on her standing up during that performance. Well, there is always next time Miley.

  31. NANALU says:

    She is sooooo STUPID!! So sick of her wanna be Rihanna Image.. put that nasty tongue back inside your mouth.. so not appealing and its ridiculous!

  32. Leila in Wunderland says:

    There is NO WAY that Anna Wintour cancelled Miley’s vogue cover because of her doing dirty dance moves in a bikini on stage. If that were the case, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Chrisina Aguilera would have never gotten any vogue covers, with all of the dirty-dancing and revealing outfits they’ve had during performancs. If Anna Wintour revoked Miley’s vogue cover, it has to be because of the culturally insensitive nature of her performance.

    • Bijlee says:

      LMAO! Anna Wintour gives f-ck all about the cultural insensitivity. Sorry Christina Aguilera probably got her first vogue cover either during or after the back to basics era, rihanna is pretty and controversial and sexy, and Gaga is pretentious aaahhhtt and fashion. Miley’s just gross.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        Christina Aguilera’s vogue cover was in 2002 or 2003, which means it was during her Dirrty phase.

        Maybe you have a point- maybe because Christina is talented, Rihanna is pretty, and Lady Gaga is ‘artsy’, she was willing to give them a pass. (Beyoncé too- she’s had her share of ‘raunch’, yet she’s had a vogue cover).

        But I still doubt that a raunchy performance in a revealing costume is enough to make Anna Wintour reject someone from vogue, especially if she has already deemed that person a ‘fashion icon’. I still suspect that it’s the blatant cultural insensitivity- and the headlines that that aspect of the performance made. People all over the internet and news media were talking about it.

        It would be funny if she put one of Miley’s ‘pop rivals’ on the cover instead. Like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, or Selena Gomez:)

      • Bijlee says:

        @leila you’re purposely missing the point. It isn’t the nudity or bikini or whatever that Wintour took pause too, it’s not even the cultural insensitivity. While people have been talking about the latter it’s been a limited sphere because most people don’t care. Sure it could play a part…but a VERY small part in Wintour’s line of thinking and possibly just an afterthought to further justify her already not putting her on the cover. It’s the horrendous performance and especially the subsequent backlash. It’s pretty clear no one liked the performance. It sucked, reeked of desperation, and she was just plain awful. There’s a certain class Wintour seems to want to project and well Miley just didn’t fit with that. People were talking about the cultural insensitivity before the performance too…didn’t seem to be any part of Wintour’s process then so why now?

        And I can’t find Christina’s vogue cover, so I’m not sure if she had one.

      • LAK says:

        Xtina has never had a vogue cover. Perhaps you are thinking of Britney whose ONLY cover was November 2001.

        From January 2002-December 2005 it is ONLY Hollywood actresses on the cover.

        After 2005, there are a handful of musicians on the cover, but Xtina isn’t one of them.

        Leila: Taylor Swift has a cover. February 2012.

  33. Sandydc says:

    Miley, for god’s sake, keep your tongue in your mouth where it belongs.

  34. Katie says:

    I wish I had her self-confidence.

    (I’d settle for having her level of delusion, though.)

    • CarryP says:

      She dose not have self-confidence if she was confident she wouldn’t be trying so hard to get outside attention and going for the shock value.

      Getting necked dose not = self-confidence

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        I’m gonna have to disagree with that one. A person can be confident but still like nudity and feel that naked photos in magazines are not a bad thing, and be very big on wearing whatever they want, or they can be really insecure and go naked. You can’t really tell by the nudity/semi-nudity in and of itself.

        For some people it’s not a matter of self-confidence or lack of self-confidence- it’s about not liking to be told what to do, and wanting to let everyone know that that’s how they feel about it. With Miley, I think THAT’S always been the issue.

      • CarryP says:

        I never said you can be confident but still like nudity. What I meant is that not every person that gets necked is confident.

        Which is true Getting necked dose not = self-confidence thier are lot of people out their getting necked with no self-confidence IE Miley.

  35. Hannah says:

    I read this yesterday but then read another article which said the rumors were BS and cover was going ahead. I think she will continue to get her fame and fortune regardless of her behavior.

  36. Dawn says:

    Miley is what..all of 21? Geez she has been working since the age of 11 and it seems these Disney kids always go a bit wild after they come of age. I say Vogue will survive with a Miley cover but I have a sinking feeling that Anna Wintour’s love for everything Kanye West will cave into his begging and put Kanye, Kimmode and little North West on a cover with a large spread on the inside and that will be the death of Vogue for me. No matter what you think of Miley she has worked hard these past ten years and all Kimmode has ever done was make and distribute porn. And Kanye West is one of the biggest hypocrites walking the earth. He is not a great singer, rapper or designer or writer. He can simply produce. That’s it.

    • Dannielle says:

      Dawn, you’re a brave soul to venture any positive points about Miley on this site. In support, I echo your sentiments. Miley has worked, for years, to get where she is. And Kanye West is overrated to the degree that it feels almost like a brainwashing, of sorts. Like the media has beat that drum for so long until people walk away saying, “He’s a genius.” HE IS NO SUCH THING. Not even close.

      And, in an effort to further deflect heat off of you, I will go one step more and say that with the exception of the sledgehammer licking, I liked the “Wrecking Ball” video. I may not always agree with her choices, but so far I am enjoying her music. She has a gorgeous body, and frankly the “bareness” of it all fits the desperate theme of the song.

      Come at me, internet! *fists up, helmet on*

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        Even if she’s going wild since she’s come of age it’s still her fault public opinion and the vogue cover are gone. She’s techincally an adult and is able to make intelligent decisions. Instead she goes the route of wanting attention which is unfortunately (almost always) smaller outfits and crude behavior (for most). She has herself to blame. I was no where near where Miley is at when I was twenty one. She’s a spoiled child who has never been told no. But my comment wasn’t to argue while you make some points I agree with.

        I haven’t seen the video but I grew up watching Britney and Christina so I’m using my imagination for this one. Riding a ball naked, she may have topped Xtina’s chaps in the raunch- though I wanted a pair when that era of Christina was relevant :P

      • Bijlee says:

        Eyeroll. Kanye west while an egotistical moronic douche is a talented guy who was able to get by on his OWN merits. And yes HE is talented. Miley is a manufactured Barbie doll that relied on Disney marketing and her parents to sell every bit of their daughter for fame, money, and attention to a starved demographic. Kanye is controversial and entertaining and unfortunately for y’all has actually made some good points and some great music throughout his career. Miley is just thirsty for your love. She lives in this bullsh-t age where your rebellion your every action is considered some empowerment stance…when it’s just bs marketing. Sorry not sorry, Miley is what she’s always been, manufactured to the core.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        I wouldn’t say that all of the backlash/hate Miley Cyrus has gotten from the time she was 15 up until now has been her fault. A lot of the hate has to do with our deep-seated puritanical ‘hang-ups’ when it comes to human sexuality, clothing, nudity, and females. The vast majority of the hatred she gets is not because she’s done anything horrible or that a person does not have every right to do. Let’s be real: if Miley Cyrus had spent the last 5 years dressing modestly like a good girl and abstaining from all of the sinful dance moves that society feels are too taboo, do you think people on this site or elsewhere would dislike her so much? Probably not. And I think that’s a shame- in the 21st century, dance moves and physical appearance should not garner the level of animosity that they do. I bet a lot of people would give Miley Cyrus a pass for her lack of talent and the delusional things she has said in her past few interviews if it weren’t for her- gasp!, grab those pearls- ‘immodesty’.

      • Dannielle says:

        Bijlee, your eyeroll is returned. Talent is a subjective term, being subjective to personal definition. Most of Kanye’s songs are about garbage: how rich he is, how great he is. I’m quite familiar with his work. He’s an excellent producer. An average wordsmith. And a horrible person. To each their own. But without getting in with Jay Z, we would have no idea who Kanye West even is. For crying out loud, half the time he’s not even the best rapper on his own songs! Examples? Monster–Nicki Minaj dominated that song. There’s a reason why her verse was put in last–no one could top it. Mercy–as painful as it is to say, 2 Chainz of all people had the best verse on that. Not to say that Kanye hasn’t had his share of great turns of phrase, his best IMO actually came on Jesus Walks, where he blithely commented, “They be asking us questions/Harass and arrest us/Saying, ‘We eat pieces of s**t like you for breakfast’/Huh? Y’all eat pieces of s**t?/What’s the basis?/We ain’t goin nowhere, but got suits and cases.” That last turn is fantastic. But he is inconsistent at best. And the richer he’s gotten, the more superficial his work has become. New Slaves is good. But the whole “300, like the ROMANS” line in Black Skinhead just proves exactly how dumb he can be. Yet, he’s the Steve Jobs of rap. Pssh, sit down, Kanye. Eminem is the Steve Jobs of rap. 8 out of 10 of his songs are about deeply personal, painful experiences. They’re about feelings and life. And the other 2 are throwaway garbage.

        As far as Miley goes, tell you what: when you’ve worked God awful long days since you were 10, maybe a supposition about not working hard should be in order for you, too. There’s work there, “product” or not.

        TL;DR: Kanye’s overrated, Miley’s not an innovator by any stretch but also not the devil.

      • Bijlee says:

        @Dannielle Look I’m not disagreeing with talent is subjective or Kanye as an artist. I absolutely agree Kanye is a way better producer than anything else. Kanye is not, nor has been a great (I’ll say it good) rapper. Did I say he was a genius??? No and I certainly wouldn’t classify Eminem as a genius rapper either. While Eminem is fantastic and yeah has put out meaningful music…alot of other rappers have too who I would personally place ahead of him. But like you said subjective.

        My point was that both you and Dawn compared Miley’s hard work (I called it child labor) and Kanye to each other. Basically saying because she’s worked hard her entire life and Kanye being overrated, blindly worshipped, etc and thus undeserving of anything versus Miley. Both have worked hard. One relied on his own merits to get ahead, while the other relied exclusively on the Disney marketing machine and her achy breaky father. Kanye is NOT the great artist he thinks himself to be, but he is talented and yeah…worked hard. He’s made something, produced a lot of good work. Miley has done nothing but been a brand for practically her entire life. Look even now she’s just a brand, not an artist, not an icon, a brand. She and her director have stated multiple times they aren’t here to make music, but get views, make money, “win a Grammy” lol.

        Do I think the “slut-shaming” of miley cyrus is okay? No. Do I think people tend to be hyper critical of her because of her whole ridiculous image that her parents heavily encouraged and pushed for. Yeah. I totally do. And again I absolutely hate that children are pushed for such things as I have stated in the past. She was a child. And honestly her development seems so stunted that she still acts like she’s 15. I tend to be really mean about her parents. They should have stopped that ish and frankly never started it. They should have retained more control over their daughters image and time, not exploited her at every corner. Well she’s financially well off so she doesn’t have to worry for the rest of her life. I guess that’s okay.

        But sorry her talent as an artist (and since it is subjective) is just non existent to me. She’s pure marketing from start to finish. Controversy heightens her brand and makes her more money. Alot more. In the end everyone around miley makes bucket loads of cash and her own ego, self-esteem etc take the blow. So I clearly see Kanye as a little more deserving than her. The whole Kimye thing is a whole nother ballgame.

      • Dannielle says:

        You know what, Bijlee? I think we might agree more than we thought. =) I hear you.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        Kayne can’t perform live without the backup track playing his autotune. Not a real rapper.

  37. shannon says:

    i wish she would leave the stuffed animals out of this mess.

  38. aquarius64 says:

    Geez, that tongue. And the little people in the band looks exploitive.

    The Twerk Jerk and teddy bear molester strikes again. USA Today reported on the Vogue debacle; the spokesperson saying they do no comment on editorial content. I think Vogue is gauging public sentiment. If it looks like Miley = loss issue sales and long-time subscribers it won’t run with it.

    I don’t care what this girl says – throwing your picture on Instagram everyday is a cry for attention and sniping at critics on Twitter means the criticism IS getting to you. Trying to write her as a marketing genius is a stretch; she’s not that smart.

  39. Jennifer says:

    I’m dealing with funeral arrangements, but I can’t resist a comment on this one. I love thinking about PR strategy.

    What I think is interesting is how the story turned over the weekend to the December cover. Was this a way of Miley’s team trying to pressure Empress Anna to reconsider? Her album is being release d on October 8th. The October or November covers would have been much more advantageous to her. I have no idea on how fast a magazine cover can be pulled and changed. When we had weeklies, they changed courses all the time. I’m curious.

  40. Dommy Dearest says:

    How many times do I have to repeat this. MILEY YOU HAVE NO ASS. Stop. She’s trying to prove she does have one ever since her VMA performance. The amount of memes and comparisons that came out after it… Ahahahahahahaha.

    And also, I will forever be laughing. This is what you get you spoiled child. Forever laughing at Miley Cyrus. Kim K can hashtag it or something: #foreverlawlingatMileyCyrus

    or as Kim would write it: 4evlolnoasscyrus

    anyone seen the seriously pr0n-y video to Wrecking Ball? Uncle Terry outdid himself. Ugh

    Daily Mail has her new video where she’s completely naked on a wrecking ball.

    Where has everyone’s taste gone?!

    Her parents seem to be loving this. Cha-ching! Are there any other Cyruses bringing home a paycheck?

  45. Janet says:

    Just one more indication of how badly Vogue has gone down the tubes since Anna Wintour became the editor. Why in the world would they even think of putting Miley Cyrus on their cover?

  46. LaurieH says:

    Anna Wintour is the pinnacle of out-of-touch egotism. I cancelled my subscription to this magazine a few years back; the pretentiousness was just nauseating. Admittedly, I do enjoy the Testino photos and I will still buy the September issue, but Wintour has been clumsily trying to shift from the authority on fashion to the authority on pop culture and politics and it’s not working. You can’t turn Vogue into Vanity Fair. Just as she enjoys the ability to control what is and isn’t in style, she equally wants to control who is and isn’t a celebrity – hence her public snub of Kim Kardashian. And while I do applaud Wintour for discerning the difference between celebrity achieved via merit and celebrity achieved via unabashed famewhoring, the fact that she was willing to put Miley on the cover clearly shows her eye for fashion far exceeds her eye for talent (as evidenced by her constant hyping of NY socialites that don’t actually contribute anything of real value to the world beyond a reliable sales base for her high-end advertisers). Still, she was savvy enough to recignize in time that a Miley cover would have served only to cheapen her brand and cost her her upper east side subscribers.

    I can’t believe people actually thought the blind item was about Naomi Campbell.
    AS IF Anna would put a black woman on the cover of vogue. She has done it once in like the 80s or 90s, and no, “Scary Spice” doesn’t count, it was a shared cover.

      Uh… she put Jennifer Hudson on the cover. So shush.

      And I’m sure a few other black women have been on there too… and since I don’t really read Vogue (or care), I can’t think of any others off of the top of my head.

      Plus Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Michelle Obama.

    • LAK says:

      The trend for Hollywood actresses as cover girls in the early 00s is what killed off diverse cover models because there aren’t many non white Hollywood actresses that are deemed fashion stars too.
      1988- 2002, Solo or Group, the following non white Models have been on the cover (and in editorials in the magazine)

      Karen Alexander
      Naomi Campbell
      Michael Bercu
      Yasmeen Ghauri
      Beverly Peele
      Nadege du Bospertus
      Kiara Kabukuru
      Scary Spice (a one off)
      Iman
      Marion Jones (a one off)
      Oprah (first appearance in 1998)

      2002-2005 all the covers bar 3 are Hollywood actresses. Halle Berry is the only non white solo cover during this time.

      Then:

      Liya Kebede (2005, 2009)(solo and Group)
      Jennifer Hudson (2007)
      LeBron James (2008) (group)
      Michelle Obama (2009, 2013)
      Beyonce (2009, 2013)
      Halle Berry (2010) (her second cover)
      Rihanna (2012)
      Serena Williams (2012) (group)

      What annoys is that all the non white faces used after 2002 are of people who are power houses. As if their super accomplishments are what renders them worthy of a cover and not necessarily their beauty.

      It smacks of stunt coverage when compared to the range of talent/beauty of the other covers from 2002 until present.

    YAY!
    Brava, Ms. Wintour. And please let this be the tide’s turning to bringing elegance back to Vogue. Billy Ray’s precocious kid never should have been slated for a Vogue cover in the first place. However, have you seen Bono’s daughter (Eve)? Stunning AND classy.

    It’s about time Vogue starts to lead the style fun again, and stop following played-out trends of giving space to over-exposed barely-talented celebrities.

  49. Jane says:

    I hope this is true, otherwise I am cancelling my subscription.

  50. Lexi says:

    Understandable, her performance was very distasteful!

  51. floridaseaturtle says:

    I have 2) questions…
    (1) Is Chanel embarrased?
    (2) What, for the love of …, is up with those nasty, used looking stuffed animals? Obviously, it is an attempt to look sexy, but all can see is pedo and bed wetting. Sorry.

  52. Kathryn says:

    Should Miley be on Vogue? Debatable. HOWEVER, Rihanna is on a Vogue cover like she is some kind of epitome of class between getting baked 24/7 and saying phuck this phuck that on every instagram caption?
    Besides, Kim K was allowed to go the Met Gala, so why not keep Miley on the cover? Jesus.

  53. Jane says:

    I’m waiting for some fall-out over her new video “Wrecking Ball”. She rides/straddles a wrecking ball totally naked.

  54. Sara says:

    This girl has no idea who she is. Can you say identity crisis?
