Miley Cyrus is a commodity, a brand name, a Barbie doll, and a fifteen year old girl.
She is a fifteen year old girl lastly because she will be worth 1 billion dollars by the time she is eighteen, because she has broken movie and music records, and because she has been idolized into something more than human by millions of little girls.
So, there was something very sad about the Vanity Fair pictures mostly because a fifteen year old girl should be beginning to discover her sexuality. She should understand how her body works and why. She should appreciate her body's feelings and responses, but she should not be doing it in front of the world. To sell magazine covers.
Shame on Vanity Fair, her father and mother, the buyers of the magazines, and us for allowing this perversion.
