In 2008, Hannah Montana was in its prime, a franchise that was worth billions of dollars and brought in countless amounts of profit for the network. The show made Miley Cyrus a household name and known around the world for her ‘perfect’ image. But soon controversy started to arise threatening that picture perfect image the network had so carefully crafted.
On a Vanity Fair shoot with famed photographer, Annie Leibovitz controversy arose upon the article’s release. One of her portraits shows the young star, 15 at the time, wrapped in a blanket, with her back exposed.
The story blew up, with many internet bloggers threatening to boycott the show and not let their children watch. When Disney got wind of the controversy of one of there most popular brands, they released a statement: “Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines,” Disney spokeswoman, Patti McTeague said.
Miley also apologized for the Vanity Fair feature:
“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. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
Miley has just yanked her apology for the 10-year-old controversy this weekend. Showing no remorse for the feature and being unapologetically herself.
