Miley Cyrus, Hannah Montana child star was pictured as a 15-year-old in a cover for the Vanity Fair magazine, where in one of the photo she exposed her back while wrapped in a satin sheet.

She disclaimed her apology for a photo in Vanity Fair. In 2008, The New York Post ran the offending picture on the front page, with the headline: “MILEY’S SHAME” and an apology for the Annie Leibovitz picture.

Cyrus on Sunday took to Twitter and took a screenshot of The New York Post’s cover at the time. She wrote, “IM NOT SORRY F*** YOU #10yearsago.”

The cover photo for the magazine was shot by the photographer Annie Leibovitz, a renowned celebrity photographer whose edgy, silver-toned portraits have included subjects such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and a naked, pregnant Demi Moore.

After the photo was clicked, Miley said in a statement, "I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed."

After Miley's statement, Leibovitz said “sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted."

She further added, "Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful."

Disney Channel which broadcasted Cyrus' TV show "Hannah Montana," was also critical of Vanity Fair.

A network statement said, "Unfortunately, as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines."

Vanity Fair justified the story and photo shoot in a statement of its own. "Miley's parents and/or minders were on the set all day. Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley."
