Innocence And Experience

The controversy behind those infamous Miley Cyrus photos continues to live on in the pages of Vanity Fair, at least for another month.

The controversy behind those infamous Miley Cyrus photos continues to live on in the pages of Vanity Fair, at least for another month. Following Cyrus’ sensual turn in the June issue, via Annie Leibovitz, readers responded like they never have before. The result, to date, is a record-breaking 915, mostly negative, letters. No story has apparently come close to sparking such a response. The issue containing Jennifer Aniston’s interview came in second, with a little more than half of the letters that Cyrus garnered. And while the majority of the letters weren’t positive, editor Graydon Carter has clearly seen worse. “They were much kinder than the letters we got when Christopher Hitchens took on Mother Theresa,” he said. “I got angry letters from staff members on that one.”
