    That's what you get for trusting the print media for your spelling... And that was from CBC, Canada's "official" broadcaster. I notice that this has been corrected today.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Annie Leibovich/Miley Cyrus, Tempest/Teapot

    I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere on the web that I can link to, but you know whereof I am referring (it was on all three major TV network evening news programs last night).
    Ignoring the social implications of a 15 year old rock/TV star showing her naked back in a solicitous pose, what do you think of the picture aesthetically?
    My own view is that it is one of the most beautiful images I've ever seen (and I'm no Leibovich fan). 100 years from now, when all the social masterbation is long over, this portrait will stand up quite nicely against the best work of great painters such as Manet, Goya and Velesquez.

    Annie Liebovich is just plain boring now...she's a machine that gets trotted out whenever some twerp in a suit wants to manufacture a bit of ersatz "controversy" or presume to an affectation of High Art. In short, she's a big gear in the Celebrity Machine.

    I love the rationalization of getting her to do this shoot, among some anyway...that a woman is somehow "alright" to do this bit of child pornography. Umm, guys? Annie's a lesbian. And this is what pedophiles call "grooming".

    Yeesh.

    Miley Cyrus is nothing more than a manufactured money machine. If anyone is to blame for her "indiscretion" of being photographed by Annie, it is her parents, who clearly should have had some counseling a long time ago.

    As far as aesthetics go, I've seen better photos in Teen Beat.

    Oh yeah...the photo.

    Good call on the parents - ultimately it's a parenting issue. And a reflection of the madonna/whore complex running deep in American popular culture. Sooner or later these girls grow up, and life in the spotlight just makes people weird, sooner or later.

    This is pimping out a young girl, plain and simple. I'm not a prude (far from it), but that's just how it is.

    Sorry about the misspelling. Leibovitz, not Leibovich.
