Miley Cyrus is still thinking back on her life and career, especially the contentious Vanity Fair cover from 2008. The 30-year-old Cyrus recalled the series’ standout cover photo, which is dubbed “Used To Be Young” after her most recent hit. In a portrait by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, the singer and “Hannah Montana” star, then-15, was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s June 2008 issue. She was shown topless, draped in a sheet, with windswept hair, and wearing red lipstick.
In the video posted on Wednesday, Cyrus added, “Everyone knows the controversy of the photo, but they don’t know the behind-the-scenes, which is always much more meaningful. “My little sister Noah (Cyrus) was sitting on Annie’s lap and pushing the button of the camera taking the pictures,” the woman claimed. “My family was on location, and I was wearing red lipstick for the first time.”
Before the cover photo, Cyrus was already gaining notoriety for her role as the main character on the Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana,” in which she plays a pop singer with a secret life. The choice of makeup for the cover photo was intentional, according to Cyrus, who was simultaneously beginning a singing career that was both connected to and trying to be different from her Disney persona. My makeup artist, Pati Dubroff, believed that would set me apart from Hannah Montana in yet another way.
Miley Cyrus’ latest music video, “Used to Be Young,” features a sad look back at her Disney days. Cyrus at first applauded the image at the time, writing in the caption of the picture that went along with the tale, “I think it’s extremely artsy. Not in a seedy manner. I thought it was incredibly great that Annie took such a lovely picture. You can’t say no to Annie, so I had to do as she asked. She is adorable. She gives you a puppy-dog face, and you say, “OK.”

The Disney star’s perspective changed after the pictures and article were published a few days later. She claimed in a statement at the time provided by her publicist, Jill Fritzo, “I participated in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic,’ and now, seeing the images and reading the story, I feel very mortified. “I sincerely apologize to my fans, who I care about so much, as I never intended for any of this to happen.”
In the days that followed, Disney Channel released a statement saying, “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old to sell magazines.” At the time, Vanity Fair defended the cover, pointing out that Cyrus’ family and crew had been present during the shoot.
