Miley’s New Shoot: We’ve Seen it All Before

Just when we thought we couldn’t be any more surprised by Miley Cyrus, she goes and pulls the rug out [from under us].

But that’s just the thing: this isn’t surprising any more.

From a woman who has repeatedly flashed crowds, written songs about drugs, rode onto stage on a giant phallus and, in one instance, even simulated oral sex on a dancer wearing a Bill Clinton mask, a few sexual photographs is hardly unexpected.

But in arguably her most explicit act so far, Miley has given us what she has always tried to hit us over the head with: full, bare-naked nudity. While Miley’s nipples have seemingly been on every kind of social media, we are finally getting ‘the best of both worlds’.

In her latest work with controversial photographer, Terry Richardson, the star poses in uniforms, simulates oral sex on a truncheon, and even posing with large strap-ons. From any other popstar this move would be shocking – but after everything we’ve seen from Miss Cyrus, does anyone even care what she does now?

Sure, she captured everyone’s attention when she first began to act out like this, cashing in on the shock value of her suddenly sexualised behaviour after her stint with Disney. But now that we’ve had a few years of constant media coverage, we no longer get shocked by seeing Hannah Montana gyrate against giant teddy bears. It’s boring.

Everyone knows that sex sells, and perhaps it was the perfect way for Miley Cyrus to be propelled back into the public eye for the re-invention of her grown-up image. After this long though, it’s starting to look a little embarrassing and – frankly – it’s getting old. It seems like there’s no stopping her though, so maybe we should just let her get on with it.

In the words of a wise woman: “Miley, what’s good?!”
