Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton on Tuesday sought to defuse a media furor he created by posting a picture on his Twitter account that seemed to suggest teen pop star Miley Cyrus had been photographed without wearing underwear. ‘
The snapshot showed the "Hannah Montana" Disney idol, 17, climbing out of a car while wearing a short, white dress. The space between her legs was pixilated and carried a "warning" notice in Hilton's Twitter posting, which has some 2 million followers.
He later said:
Hilton said he had posted the photo to highlight the "very unladylike fashion" in which Cyrus was getting out of the car.
So the king of all car-exit postures is sitting there sifting through stacks of pictures, judging what's ladylike and what's not. Look, Miley may be a pop star, and she may be in the middle of a predictable attempt to “shed” her “Disney” image, but she’s 17, and . . . well, she’s 17. Minors may volunteer for early adulthood status, but it’s not incumbent upon adults to play along.
Adults. Ah, but we were talking about Perez Hilton, weren’t we.
