Miley Cyrus: Vanity Fair photos spark US outrage

When we first heard the name Miley Cyrus we thought it must be some cowboy boot, donkey shirt wearing Country and Western singer.

Turns out Miley Cyrus is the 15 year old daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus who's carved a living looking jailbait sexy while pumping out poptunes on Disney Channel show Hannah Montana.

Miley is currently under fire over a risque Vanity Fair photo shoot with famously artsy photographer Annie Leibovitz. In one snap Miley is featured wrapped in a silky bed sheet - her naked back on show. In another draped over pop Billy Ray Cyrus's knee, baring her midriff.

The American moral majority are having a total cow over the photos which they see as ruinous to Miley's 'godly' image - and want Miley to go on telly and apologise for offending the sensibilities of her millions of god fearing young fans.

"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," Miley has said - horrified at the way her sexy marketing strategy backfired.

Although what she has to feel embarrassed about is anyone's guess - she was only towing the party line! The Disney Channel strategy is "to discover, nurture, and aggressively cross-promote teen music stars whose style and image are carefully targeted to the "tween" segment of 10-year-olds in the period between childhood and adolescence"

The very same channel primed an 11 year old Britney Spears for musical domination - she burst onto the music scene dressed like a naughty schoolgirl, all bared thigh and f*ck me now knee high socks while panting 'hit me baby one more time'. And Christina Aguilera - another Disney Channel protege, had no worries sporting bumless leather pants while purring 'I'm dirty' when practically still knee high to a grasshopper.

In short, in an industry which feeds on girl child stars being sexy enough to create billions of dollars in revenue while not being quite of legal age, we're not sure what all the fuss is about.

And thats our final word on Miley Cyrus. Fox News'll be feasting on the crumbs for weeks though.
