Unwinding the past thirty years of her life, Miley Cyrus is discussing some of the infamous moments in her life through the “Used to Be Young” series on TikTok. The actress recently talked about her topless photoshoot for the Vanity Fair cover. The shoot took place in 2008 when she was 15. “This image of me is a complete opposite of the bubblegum pop star that I had been known for being and that’s what was so upsetting,” the singer confided. 


However Miley has a different take on the photograph.“Everyone knows the controversy of the photo but they don’t really know the behind-the-scenes, which is always much more meaningful,” she said. “My little sister, Noah, was sitting on Annie [Leibovitz]’s lap and actually pushing the button of the camera, taking the pictures. My family was on set,” Miley added.

There is so much more to the controversial cover than the telltale that has been going around. And Miley Cyrus is unlocking her favorite memories through the series. “This was the first time I ever wore red lipstick,” the singer pointed out.  “Because Patti Dubroff, who did my makeup, thought that that would be another element that would divide me from Hannah Montana,” Miley added. 


The photoshoot became the topic of the town as the topless actress posed in a white bedsheet. This was an image different from that of her bubbly and charming Hannah Montana. However, the pop star is thankful for the cover. “But really brilliant choices, looking back now, from those people,” Miley appreciated the work of the stylists and designers who helped her with that look.
