Celebrities on Miley Cyrus Topless Vanity Fair Photos

Everyone has an opinion, what about you??
Sally Field: “I love Miley Cyrus. My granddaughters are completely and utterly over the moon. I watch Hannah Montana….I think, ‘Let it go for God’s sake’…It’s a beautiful picture.”
Hilary Duff: “It’s a lot of pressure. I don’t know how I would even begin to give her advice because I feel she has a huge career and she’ll learn how to deal with it. Everyone goes through things and takes their own path. Who am I to judge decisions that she made? It’s not what I would choose to do, but if she did then that’s fine. That’s her choice.”
Lauren Conrad [The Hills]: “I found it a bit silly. I thought she looked beautiful in the pictures. I didn’t find it that inappropriate. I think it’s difficult. It s a lot of pressure on her since she is a role model, but I think she’s doing a good job.”
Heidi Montag [The Hills]: “I think she’s a young girl in Hollywood and she’s just having fun. Exploring herself.”
Spencer Pratt [The Hills]: “I didn’t think it was that bad. Supposedly, she’s wearing a top underneath. It’s artistic.”
Tila Tequila [VH1’s A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila]: “I think it’s hot. When I was 15, I was doing the same thing except I bared it all….She’s just showing her back. She’s growing up. I don’t think she’s doing anything harmful. If the media keeps pushing her, pressuring her, she might end up messed up. But right now, I think everyone should just let her have fun. She’s not doing anything scandalous. I think she’s hot!”
Emmy Rossum: “I think she’s a role model for kids, but I think she looks beautiful.”
Rosie O’Donnell: “I had two photo shoots with her [Annie Leibovitz]. It’s intimidating. Annie Leibovitz. I also didn’t think it was a pornographic photo in any capacity. I thought it was kind of a beautiful portrait, you know. I like the one of her and her dad too. It’s Annie Leibovitz people. Leave Miley alone!
Jamie Lee Curtis: “She is a young girl. She shouldn’t have to deal with any of this. I don’t feel that she was duped. I know the integrity of Ms. Liebovitz and the magazine and I know there were people present at the shoot that should have been looking out to make sure that this didn’t happen.”
Bill O’Reilly: “[Billy Ray Cyrus] puts her into a situation where she becomes, at 15, a sex symbol. Middle America… they don’t like this. Miley is a nice girl,” she made “a bad decision.
“She should do Oprah and say, ‘We made a mistake, here’s why and it won’t happen again.”
Bonnie Fuller [Star Magazine editor]: “Is it OK to sexualize a fifteen-year-old if it is in the pages of a high falutin’ magazine and her parents seem OK with it? Or is this really not much different from parents in a cult acquiescing to having their teen daughters wedded and bedded? I’m not sure that it is all that different.”

HEY HEY. I think it was fine. Did she hurt anybody? no! I think she looked gorgeous. She did. I think the media made it to look badder than it was. She has such pressure to be a good role model and when she makes 1 mistake the world is onto her. Its not nice

I'm fine with the photo shoot and photo.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder...
Miley is a jewel. Marketing & Disney suck.

Laura Schlessinger said her 2 cents in the Santa Barbara News-Press last Thurs. Too bad no one keeps tabs on her influence on "family values". Many parents are upset. They fear adolescence and go for a reactionary quick fix.

Schlessinger: "Most parents of 15-year olds are pretty upset about this inappropriate display of a adolescent exposing her body in a vulgar way and giving their own children the wrong idea of feminine modesty and self-respect."

"Take that philosophy to your standard innocent and naive youth, and what do you get?..." "(venereal warts)"

"That one look over Miley's shoulder, with her chest barely covered with a sheet, was an assault on the innocence of even more young girls..."

It wasn't porn by any means. But, why do it. What was the point of taking a picture, artsy or not, topless. I have a 6 year old, would people think highly of me if I allowed Liebowitz to take an "artistic" photo of her without a shirt and clutching a sheet? Seriously, I'm not being sarcastic. If not to hint at sexuality or to create buzz, what really is the point of posing that way? If it's totally innocent, why not pick the thousands of other innocent poses she could have done? I just don't see how people could think that's cool.
