Celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz says
she's sorry people have "misinterpreted" a photo she shot of
Miley Cyrus for the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
Leibovitz says the one photo that has caused most of the stir is
"a simple, classic portrait" that "is very beautiful."

The picture is just one in a series that accompanies a Vanity
Fair interview with the teenage pop star and her father, singer
Billy Ray Cyrus.
The Disney Channel, which airs Cyrus' TV show "Hannah
Montana," is critical of Vanity Fair. The network, in a statement,
says the article suggests that "a situation was created to
deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines."
