Miley Cyrus has been embroiled in another photographic fiasco, this time courtesy of Bustler Magazine. The 15-year-old megastar will appear in a 3-month, 3-centerfold hardcore trilogy starting with the December Christmas issue.
"Miley had no idea these photos would be used in such a suggestive manner," said a spokesman for the young singer-actress. "We were assured that this material would be tasteful, and that all toys involved would be approved by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and under 12 inches in length. Bustler failed to live up to their side of the understanding on both counts."
Some commentators warn that this latest scandal may spell the end of Cyrus' career. Others predict a mere hiatus until the star turns 18. "Once she's legal, she can resume a career based on an overwhelming appeal to young people," said media analyst Gloria Transit. "She will just need to shift her target audience a little, from 14-year-old girls to 16-year old boys."
This is the 8th time that compromising photos of Cyrus have been published. Previous incidents involved the magazines Vanity Fair, Vogue, Playboy, Penthouse, Drunk Girls in Trouble, and Grit as well as the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
