Empowering Girls: Miley's Photo

I’m conflicted about this.

Wasn’t the media just lying in wait for the girl to screw up and cross the very fine line between contemporary and provocative?

“Vanity Fair wants to sell magazines,” one newswoman says.

“Exactly right,” another newswoman says,

“Yeah, true,” I say. “But, no more than you want higher viewer ratings and are deliberately competing with Entertainment Tonight.”

Seems everyone wants to capitalize on Miley’s misstep – the news stations, the newspapers are all feeding on the story like ratings-hungry wolves.

I find that just as girl-exploitive as the actual photographs.

Miley has apologized and so has Annie Lebowitz, who shot the photo.

What are you thinking about this?
