EVERYONE Has Something to Say About the Miley Cyrus Pics in Vanity Fair

My oh my oh my.

We sure have ruffled some feathers here.

Everyone wants to weigh in on the racy, undead pics of Miley Cyrus on the cover of Vanity Fair.

First up, Miley herself, talking both about the VF photos and those racy shots of her that circulated last week:

In a formal statement, Miley says:

“My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with [photographer] Annie [Leibovitz]. I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed… The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone.”

However, she’s quoted in Vanity Fair as saying the following:

“I think it’s really artsy. It wasn’t in a skanky way. Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That’s what she wanted me to do, and you can’t say no to Annie. She’s so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you’re like, ‘OK.’ Most of all. I have let myself down. I will learn from my mistakes and trust my support team. My family and my faith will guide me through my life’s journey.”

Says a Vanity Fair spokesperson:

“Miley’s parents and/or minders were on the set all day. Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.”

And what does the Disney Channel think about all this? Here’s their statement:

“Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”

I want to hear a statement from Miley’s parents! What do they think of all this?

The Carmen Electra Stripper Pole Video Game???

New reports are claiming that Peekaboo Pole Dancing, the company behind the Carmen Electra home pole dancing kit, is looking to create a Carmen Electra Pole Dancing game for the Nintendo Wii.

Says a source: “Pole dancing would certainly be an interesting fit for the Nintendo Wii, and it would be something to see how big of a pole they would actually ship with a game.”

Ha ha. I’m not sure if this is bullshit or if they’re actually considering doing this, but, man, I might just have to go out and buy a Wii.

Your Daily Paris

Here’s Paris at an after-party at Coachella, wearing what appears to be a glorified nightie.

No, it wasn’t a pajama party. She’s just dressed this way.

After the jump, more pics from this party, including Nicky Hilton, Bijou Phillips, Carmen Electra (and new fiance Rob Patterson), Stacy Keibler, DJ AM, Steve Aoki and Danny Patterson.

The Rules Are Changing

Here’s 15-year-old Miley Cyrus, tempting all pedophiles from the upcoming cover of Vanity Fair.

Not to mention the necrophiliacs!

I can go either way on this one. A part of me is like, “What the fuck are they doing sexualizing a 15-year-old girl like that! What kind of message does it send?” And then another part of me thinks it’s positive that young women are being shown they can embrace their sexuality. I mean, when you think about it, this whole thing about having to be 18 before the world can view you sexually is very recent. A couple hundred years ago, girls in this country were married and popping out kids by Miley’s age, and no one thought twice about it. Do we, as a society, have to teach our teenage girls that their sexuality is taboo? Can we rather teach them to embrace it and use it responsibly and wield it powerfully?

Not that this cover implies any of that. It just got me thinking.

I do feel obliged to point out that Miley Cyrus mentioned in one of her YouTube shows that everything she does, she does for Jesus. Talk about sending mixed messages.

Sober on the Strip!

Lindsay Lohan hit up Sin City with girlfriend Samantha Ronson this weekend, and there are, so far, no reports of her drinking.

In fact, on Friday night, she was spotted eating lobster and gulping down Shirley Temples. She and SamRo then hit up the Kanye West show, and then Lindsay went back to her hotel room (you know, the one she’s sharing with Samantha) while Samantha DJ’d at the grand opening of Torrid.

I’m holding out judgment until I hear what happened on Saturday night. It’s one thing to make it through your first night in Vegas sober. It’s a whole other challenge to make it through night two. I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough how Lindsers fared.
