Miley's not really sorry about Vanity Fair. We're just uptight.

LONDON, U.K. -- Miley Cyrus has reevaluated her Vanity Fair photo controversy of April 2008, and decided it wasn't that bad after all.

"Everyone outside of America liked it a little bit more because that's more like the style, but the States are really conservative," Miley told Scotland's Daily Record about the Annie Leibovitz shoot, the results of which she originally said made her feel "embarrased." "[I] guess I just had to deal with that and just realize that I got to work with an amazing photographer."

Perhaps one reason for Miley's change of heart has to do with her goal in life. The teen sensation told the newspaper she wants to spend some time behind the lens in the future.

"That's what I want to do with my life," the pop star continued, referencing Leibovitz's chosen profession. "I would love to be a photographer. She was amazing and so talented and her lighting... I would love to work with her again. But I realize I'm just a kid."

And like other young people, Miley's parents have rules about her spending. Though she is now old enough to drive, and she rakes in millions each year, her parents told her not to purchase the luxury vehicle she had been dreaming of.

"Certainly not because then I would be broke," Miley said. "I wouldn't have anything left to support my family because that's what I want to do. When I get older, and maybe my parents want to settle down, I want to be able to take care of them."

For now though, it's Billy Ray and his wife Leticia who take care of Miley.

And they may be doing so for a while. Miley has no plans to move out of the family home - where she has her own wing - at present.

"Maybe when I am 20," she said. "When my mom stops cooking for me. As soon as my mom stops making me food then I'm out. My sister lived at home until she went to college at 18 and she says, 'Oh, I wish I'd stayed at home a little longer.' My brother's 19 and he's still at home so I think I want to stay until 20 or 21."

She has no fucking reason to be sorry about those pictures. They were nice portraits.

mte. it's not like she was naked with strategically placed hair or something.
lvtypething 4th-Dec-2008 12:28 am (UTC)
IA, Disney probably forced her to apologize.
toomuchbling 3rd-Dec-2008 10:56 am (UTC)
ok, the problem for me wasn't the nakedness or whatever, it was the fact that she looked like a sick ghost

THANK YOU. nobody ever has, or at least replied to say so.. lol
grammaire 3rd-Dec-2008 11:01 am (UTC)
I'm laughing at the thought of a sick ghost. It's like, they're dead already -sucks they have to be sick in the afterlife too.

She looked like a tarted-up Samara from The Ring. IDG people who wet themselves over what a *fabulous* picture it was.
_panache 3rd-Dec-2008 02:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I didn't care about the "nakedness" eithe, but it was just an awful picture of her.
landocalrissian 3rd-Dec-2008 03:58 pm (UTC)
Iawtc. She looked like a corpse. That's what creeped me out.
artemis_archer 3rd-Dec-2008 04:26 pm (UTC)
ia, she should've been more pissed that it was a horrible photo, she looked like they just wheeled her out of the morgue
oprego 3rd-Dec-2008 05:26 pm (UTC)
ikr. they were just horrible photos.

so much for being "taken advantage of"
therealycats 3rd-Dec-2008 01:13 pm (UTC)
I think it was actually Disney who came out with that quote, wasn't it?
bamboobanga2 3rd-Dec-2008 10:58 am (UTC)
well we knew she wasn't really sorry about it in the first place, disney made her issue the statement didn't they?

second time i've defended somebody i truly cannot stand in less than five minutes, i don't know who i am anymore
radwimp 3rd-Dec-2008 11:00 am (UTC)
are there less disney posts these past few days or it is just me
not that i'm complaining.
bamboobanga2 3rd-Dec-2008 11:01 am (UTC)
congratulations, you jinxed it

open the floodgates

your icons are so freaky. i love the cat one.
magaliiiii 3rd-Dec-2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
it's because everyone is too busy creaming their pants over britney. i almost WANT a "celena v miley" post just so i don't have to see six britney posts in a row anymore.
oakenshield 3rd-Dec-2008 11:00 am (UTC)

what the fuck? when your PARENTS want to settle down?
you_hermit_crab 3rd-Dec-2008 11:01 am (UTC)
lol I thought that was weird too.
grammaire 3rd-Dec-2008 11:06 am (UTC)
I think she means "when my parents want to get old and die, I want to be able to take care of their nursing home bills."
shanny_w 3rd-Dec-2008 11:13 am (UTC)
Yeha, just huck them in a nursing home.

why does every 16 year old girl want to be a photographer?
oakenshield 3rd-Dec-2008 11:13 am (UTC)
cause it's ~artistic~

as a photography major I wanna kick every kid who's like that
bent_ley 3rd-Dec-2008 07:17 pm (UTC)
and how come you are any better then those 16 year old girls? stfd
shanny_w 3rd-Dec-2008 11:15 am (UTC)
It doesnt require much to click a button I guess. But I'm sure most of their pics are shit and myspace angles.
you_hermit_crab 3rd-Dec-2008 11:15 am (UTC)
I love your icon!
headcaseheidi 3rd-Dec-2008 11:35 am (UTC)
narcissism, idk
hay_bitch 3rd-Dec-2008 11:35 am (UTC)
I'm 16, and I definitely do not want to be a photographer. I appreciate fine art, not Myspace angles and little teenybopper photos trying to be ~artistic~, and the aritsts who take the pictures and paint them, but I don't want to be one. I have a few other goals in my mind which I have had in my mind since I was young, thank you very much.
rainbowtomatoe 3rd-Dec-2008 11:57 am (UTC)
i know right?

they think they've got the skills because they can take bad myspace photos with ~angles in ~black&white~

oh and your icon is hottttt.
a_mole 3rd-Dec-2008 12:01 pm (UTC)
so what?
why does every little kid under 10 wanna be a firefighter, cop, astronaut nurse or veterinarian?

it just seems cool at that age and kids/ teens have a certain idea about jobs in their head that may not reflect reality.. but whatever. it's normal
onethousandways 3rd-Dec-2008 12:20 pm (UTC)
why does every (stupid) girl regardless of their age want to be a photographer?

because they think it will be easy.

when they find out it's not they resort to taking whory pics of them and their friends 'cause it's the best they can do.

the end
lennoxs 3rd-Dec-2008 12:41 pm (UTC)
I'm 14, and I'm pretty into it.
Only, I'm not ignorant about it like most girls idk. :/
I've taken classes, I'm a class and I've invested money in decent cameras/lenses.

I just don't know if I want it to be my career?
It's so much fun as a hobby. I do agree that some girls' ideas of ~photography are pretty dumb, though. But some are pretty srs bsns about it.

k, done making this about myself.
therealycats NOTED3rd-Dec-2008 01:14 pm (UTC)
They want to be noted like Nigel.
bonjourchloe 3rd-Dec-2008 01:21 pm (UTC)
i'm pretty sure every person and their brother wants to be a photographer. most of my friends are like that and it kind of makes me sad because a lot of them think they're going to hit it big with their ~artsy~ pictures and they just look like they're trying way too hard...
coreycoreycorey 3rd-Dec-2008 02:43 pm (UTC)
because it's so fucking easy to take a picture of a park bench, make it black and white, post it to flickr and have a million people be like "OMG SO AMAZING AND INSPIRING!!!"

it makes me sad, the popular flickr people. some are so bad and i have seen so much better.
teasailor 3rd-Dec-2008 03:24 pm (UTC)
I don't know why people get so annoyed when people want to be photographers... even if they don't become serious. Be realistic, from the outside, it seems like a really fun and cool profession. And it seems easy. Too bad it's not.
sinfulemerald 3rd-Dec-2008 03:39 pm (UTC)
i do it for myself. granted I'm not 16, but I noticed I had a knack for photography by accident one day.

the pictures are no way in hell able to be published, but I like them and keep them on my flickr as a way to show them off I guess is what I'm trying to say?

I don't know. I ahve a horrible headcold and just lost my train of thought.

I think the point is that its a hobby for a lot of people and a job for the best
anydoppelganger 4th-Dec-2008 12:41 am (UTC)
lol srsly.

"i took this black-and-white photo of my scuffed-up chuck taylors with my digital camera. look how ~artistic~ it is"
fauxjoy 3rd-Dec-2008 11:11 am (UTC)
That photos were scary and creepy, and I feel the whole world would agree.
shanny_w 3rd-Dec-2008 11:13 am (UTC)
Obv she didnt in the 1st place.
summergirl719 3rd-Dec-2008 11:24 am (UTC)
"I wouldn't have anything left to support my family because that's what I want to do.
I don't understand parents who try to live off the success of their children. This could get interesting when Miley inevitably rebels.
therealycats 3rd-Dec-2008 01:16 pm (UTC)
I don't think that's what she means here--and it's not as though Billy Ray doesn't have money. If it weren't for his fame in the first place, she would just be some kid. I think she means that when her parents are ready to retire, she wants to take care of them.

Anyway, they have laws in place now for child actors/singers to make sure their parents don't squander all their earnings like the did in the past.
ohh_hay 3rd-Dec-2008 11:27 am (UTC)
Of course she wasn't sorry, she was just trying to protect her ass from the backlash.

Who cares about the fact she was topless...she looked HORRIBLE. THAT was the offensive part. But really, I still ask, why did a 15-year-old need to be topless anyway...

Those pictures were terrible and she looked hideous.
