Once again, the photographer has captured the former Disney star/ MTV documentary subject at her most playful and vulgarly revealing, but to say that the images are shocking would make us sound like a broken record. In the past six months, the pop culture fixation has made herself into a “strategic hot mess”, albeit at the bafflement of her audience. Everyday seems like the birth of a new, controversial public appearance/ performance/ music video/ photo shoot that keeps getting wackier.
Below are shots from Richardson’s blog, showing Cyrus going commando in a red body suit, hedonistically enjoying an ice cream cone and smoking, and (on a more somber note) giving a numb and vulnerable gaze into the camera. The craziness is a bit overwhelming, but if it’s to gain hype for the documentary that was released on Wednesday, October 2nd, then Team Terry x Miley has done a banging job.
