Miley Cyrus 'Takes Back' Apology For Posing 'Nude' 10 Years Ago

Singer Miley Cyrus has taken back an apology she made for appearing 'near-nude' in a photoshoot when she was just 15.

Taking to social media 10 years after the original photos were published in Vanity Fair, she wrote, 'I'm not sorry', in all caps, so we know she's serious.

Vanity Fair came under fire for publishing the photos of the 15-year-old, but in a statement said that her parents had been on the shoot all day and that 'everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley'.

At the time, Miley told PEOPLE she was 'honoured' and 'thrilled' to be working with photographer Annie Leibovitz on the shoot but that after seeing the photos and reading the story she was 'so embarrassed'.

Photographer Leibovitz told the magazine that the photo had been 'misinterpreted', adding that she thought the snap was a 'simple, classic portrait', which 'is very beautiful'.

And now it appears that Miley agrees and is no longer embarrassed about the picture.

Shortly before the post, she had shared a number of old photos of her as an adorable kid - 'fuck you' seemed to be a bit of a theme, though, with a second post also including that caption.

Of course, Miley would go on to share a lot more flesh than she did in 2008, even appearing on a wrecking ball wearing nothing but a pair of Dr Martens - safety first and all that, you can't be too careful on a demolition site.

However, she has expressed a bit of regret at taking part in that shoot. She said, speaking on the Zach Sang Show: "That's something you can't take away, swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever.


"Once you do's forever. I'm never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on the wrecking ball.

"I just licked a sledgehammer. I should have thought how long that was going to follow me around. That's my worst nightmare is that being played at my funeral."

To be fair, that is quite a unique worst nightmare.
