Leave Miley Cyrus Alone Please!!

By now, it is pretty common knowledge about the pictures that Miley Cyrus took for Vanity Fair magazine. If you have not seen the pictures, they are below.

For those of you who don't know who Miley Cyrus is -- she is the alter-ego of the character Hannah Montana, one of the highest rated shows on the Disney Channel. She is also the 15-year-old daughter of singer Billy Ray Cyrus.

The photos, taken by respected photographer Annie Leibovitz, has caused a stir since they were made public. Many parents, understandably, have taken the teen to task on her photos. Many are very upset with the semi-nude photo of her that was taken. Many people also made the assumption that Miley's parents were not present at the photoshoot (they were). Many are also saying that Miley has lost her role model status because of the pics.

The Shadow has this to say to all: GET A LIFE PEOPLE!!!!

Miley has appropriately apologized to her fans for the raciness of the photos. Annie Leibovitz released the following statement on the photos:

Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful.

The Shadow agrees. Miley knew what she was doing and the photos are very tastefully done. And she will be America's darling again within a week or so.

The Shadow would say to the parents who have hounded Miley since these pics came out: While The Shadow can understand your feelings in terms of how your young daughters may perceive these photos -- if you don't want your children to see them -- DON'T LET THEM SEE THE MAGAZINE. The Shadow also doubts that many girls in the 6-14 age range are reading Vanity Fair.

Let this one go people.
