Annie Leibovitz: Desperate to be Relevant Again

Oh Annie! First it was racist pictures of LeBron James, now it's sudo nude pictures of 15 year old Miley Cyrus. Nice! The once relevant photographer is obviously desperate to get her edge back. Some may think these pictures are edgy and reflect the classic Leibovitz style. Personally, I think it's edgier to make the controversy yourself rather then do something obvious and wait for the obvious reaction. It's as if she ran out of ideas and thought "I know what pisses people off. Racism and pedophilia." Good thinking Leibovitz.
Of course, she couldn't have taken these pictures without the permission of LeBron or Miley's parents. The moral of the story is; No one cares about your reputation but you, so protect it. Don't let some washed up "artist" sell you down the river for a career move. Shame on you Billy Ray you slack jawed yokel. You just let your daughter look like a whore in front of the world. Perhaps it's Billy Ray that is using his daughter to jump start his failing career. This story is all class. Lower.
