  15. Not Again says – reply to this


    Annie Lebovitz is overrated. Rarely do I see anything spectacular in her photographs let alone originality.

  16. mira says – reply to this


    so true! I didn't think anything of the 'famous' Tom Ford photo shoot either. She is way to over hyped!

    i love you to death perez but dont know annies talent just cuz she got stuck with a shitty subject

  22. Nikki says – reply to this


    Are you SERIOUSLY questioning Annie Leibovitz's talent?!

    Even SHE said it was a classic pose.

    Holy crap you are ridiculous. Go back under your rock and eat a pie. You are SUCH a hanger on!

    i think takin a pic half naked wrapped in a blanket is hardly orginal anyway.

    hasn't every celebrity in hollywood done a shot like this? i think your friend maniston has one too, not sure who the photog was.

    I bet you wished that she shot a cover of Miley and her hillbilly daddy just like the one of John Lennon and Yoko Ono wherein John was nude with Yoko snuggling up against him. Now that would be the shit.

  33. Chic-g says – reply to this


    I hate how magazines always go to the same "legendary this,' "Expert that," "icon this." How did these people become legends, experts, icons?? Because they are hyped over and again by the media. Give OTHER people chances to prove their talent and don't run to the SAME people over and over again for everything.

  34. rosie says – reply to this


    wow fourth pfft

  35. douchenozzle says – reply to this


    just picked up on that did ya?? what are you, like, 13?

  36. Hmmm says – reply to this


    I'm not trying to be nasty or anything, but is Annie Liebowitz the only photographer out there??? They make it like she is so spectacular. I mean come on.. there's got to be other good photogs out there. No offense to Annie, but come on … you're a mom too… DIDN'T YOU STOP TO THINK THAT MAKING MILEY POSE LIKE THAT AT 15 WAS NOT RIGHT!!! How stupid are all these people that they didn't figure there would be a big uproar about that photo!!

  37. will! says – reply to this


    miley looks like she belongs in my chemical romance

  38. me says – reply to this


    Annie Leibovitz is an incredibly talented photographer, and after being around for so long, OF COURSE there will be repeated shots, poses, etc. I hope that when you have established yourself as whatever it is you are going for, someone will come along and talk about how un-original you are.

  39. desi says – reply to this


    hahaha perez u are such a genious

  40. Erin says – reply to this


    I think Annie's probably done every shot known to man and everyone else has copied her. I see this shot all the time. God does anyone really give a shit that this is happening? Get over it and focus on something actually relelvant to society. Like who the hell is going to be president.

  41. !@#$ says – reply to this


    totally different pctures .
    mileys got pants on .

  42. PStorm says – reply to this


    Annie Leibovitz is one of the greatest photographers of all time.
    She shot some of the most famous and recognizable celebrity portraits.
    I saw an exhibit of her work a few months back at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
    Her talent is breathtaking.

  43. hannah says – reply to this


    annie leibovitz has been shooting celebrity photos since 1987 when she joined the rolling stones magazine. don't you think that after almost 30 years of shooting, maybe a few images might have similarites? she has won several awards. i am a conservative christian and a photographer and i see nothing wrong with these photos. i do understand however that she (miley) is an idol to many young impressionable girls and this might not have been a very smart step for her. but from an art stand point, these images are beautiful.

  44. mann says – reply to this


    please, there are only so many ways to sit in front of a camera. Also funny you think she has no more original ideas, but atleast she has a career of original ideas.. Your career is built from mocking others and putting down their 'original ideas..'

  45. Meh says – reply to this


    Perez you're so dumb, it's terrifying

  46. Rachel says – reply to this


    Annie Leibovitz is one of the most accomplished photographers in the world. So what if she uses the same kind of idea twice, many people do that, and many people have done nude-except-for-a-sheet portraits, not just her. I bet if it wasn't Miley on that cover, you wouldn't give a care what photos she's taken.

    And Diana Ross is not a fifteen year old Disney star, so there is hardly any comparison.

    Usually I like you, Perez, but this really isn't even worth posting.

  47. Mo says – reply to this


    Tssss…..just can't bring myself to hate on Annie, sorry P-Nasty…not this time.

  48. Rammy says – reply to this


    Annie is the SHIT perez stop hatin

  49. hannah says – reply to this


    one more thing, leibovitz photos are some of the most world known images. for instance, she shot the last professional of lennon before he died. this was the image of lennon and yoko ono, where lennon was nude and curled up to a clothed ono. this is just one of the many. a few months ago, perez was praising leibovits for her cinderalla images of scarlett johanson. waves tossed by the wind…..

  50. Lexy Trouble says – reply to this


    I guess it's a trade mark?

    I love you Perez, you are fabulous!

  51. Zach says – reply to this


    Oh no, she fucking repeated a pose from 15 19 years ago

    Find something else to bitch about you fat Mexican

  52. maggie says – reply to this


    First of all, it's a classic shot. Second, she's an amazing photographer, have you even bothered to look at any of her other works? Probably not…..

  53. xoxoxo says – reply to this


    Don't insult Annie.

  54. Emily Kunzite says – reply to this


    See, Perez? I told you where the blame lies. Vanity Fair and Annie Leibovitz.

  55. j says – reply to this


    stop talking about miley, its getting old.

  56. Idiot says – reply to this


    Are you retarded, Pérez? The pictures possibly draw parallels between the two? Density - it's a concept you've taken to head.

  57. Christine says – reply to this


    I really don't get the who 'woop-de-doo-' thing with Annie. She's a photographer… wow. In the end, she's like everyone else, no original ideas, just remakes from days of yore. Hollywood and the fashion industry are like that. Overpaid and underworked!

  58. FUCK OFF PEREZ says – reply to this


    Eat shit fat fuck, you do NOTHING new, ever and yet still work. You should really think about all the bashing you do of people who actually have talent…

  59. ma says – reply to this


    Leibovitz never clamed it was an "original" pose.

  60. jh says – reply to this


    HAHA. Annie is still amazing. I give serious props to Miley, she really didn't need to apologize for anything. If i were her, I would do anything Annie told me to do also. How many 15 year old kids in the business can say that they were shot by Annie Leibovitz? Not many I'm sure.

  61. kimmie says – reply to this


    I have that issue…and Diana Ross looks fabulous!

  62. cincykid says – reply to this


    perez you are an idiot, this is a classic pose used by photographers ever since photography was inveted and it was just enamel on a glass plate. maybe you should buy some of her books and check those out. shes amazing, and a lesbian. one of my best friends interned for her for the last year and a half, and was blown away by being that up close to a legend.
    perhaps you just can't appreciate anything except for the pap's images you so shamelessly post on your site. its not her fault she gets asked to shoot crappy subjects for a lot of money. hey girl gotta eat too.

  63. Mike says – reply to this


    FYI>>>>Annie is a lesbian and always tries to get girls naked……Let's get real here….VF,Miley and Annie gets lets of play off such a dumb thing…..it;s like a Brooke Shields/Calvin Klein flashback…..end of the day, who cares ?

  64. perez=ASSHOLE says – reply to this


    annie leibovitz is the most fabulous photographer. Don't trash her you asshole.

  65. dfs says – reply to this


    hahaha wooooooow, Annie Leibovitz is known for shooting celebrities in this pose for Vanity Fair convers, do some research before you say stupid stuff like this. This comment was almost as bad as your Radiohead one.

  66. AmyDJ says – reply to this


    Annie Liebovitz is amazing. Those who say she's overhyped don't understand- she basically invented the celebrity glam shot. She's photographed everyone and I mean *everyone* in a Hollywood. I think you've made it when she does you.

    I'm a photographer and she's one of my idols. And didn't she start in the '60s? Because she toured with the Rolling Stones and then joined Rolling Stone magazine and hung with Hunter S. Thompson and all that? Legend. Legend.

    Miley's photo was tasteful and totally *not* provocative. I find it surprising that the people who come to Perez's site, of all places, find it scandalous. Um, what?

  67. sarah says – reply to this


    i think i understand Annie's vision…"A star is born" for Miley vs. Diana's "A star is reborn."

  68. Nate says – reply to this


    Perez, don't take a shot at Leibovitz for this whole ordeal.

    The whole idea behind it is one of simplicity rather than sexuality…she could do it one hundred times and it will always be beautiful.

    Get in touch with Leibovitz's actual catalogue before you remark on her lack of originality.

  69. Katie says – reply to this


    Annie Leibovitz has more talent in her morning piss than you do in your entire body, my dear.

  70. foryou24 says – reply to this


    Your stretching with this one fatty!

  71. Emsie says – reply to this


    Two pictures of women in somewhat similar poses in almost 20 years = no original ideas???

  72. franny b says – reply to this


    C'mon, give Annie some credit. Miley is sitting in the opposite direction in her latest masterpiece.

  73. dina says – reply to this


    she's a freakin' genious and an unbelievable artist you moron, get some class! How dare you!

  74. BARBIE says – reply to this


    nice :) and LOVED MILEY's pic for Vanity Fair!! SO PRETTY for Miley & she wasn't naked , unlike Disney tot Vanmessa for her full frontal nakediness all over the interenet! …it was a fab Vanity Fair shot :) go Miley!

  75. Colleen King says – reply to this


    I've never been a fan of her work, and people who are all "Oh shes so wonferful, she took some of the last shots of john lennon" Well you know what, just because you take a picture of an amazing man, dose not mean your an amazing photographer, she needs some new idea. I dont feel bad for miley though, she had it coming.

  76. anon says – reply to this


    NO! She does not! She's been boring for years! Her pictures were fun 20 years ago, but now they're just rehashed CRAP. Good call, Perez.

  77. Ren says – reply to this


    This whole thing is getting pretty ridiculous. I get that she's 15,but her parents had to be aware of what the photo shoot was going to consist of and they allowed it. This photograph is also not like the ones she has posted of herself, it was done in good taste. Annie Leibovitz is an amazing photographer, and art is always re-done, what's original at this point? It's just something old receiving a make-over. The whole her having to apologize because of that Christian group? Come on, it is her freedom to be able to do this. If any one should be blamed it should be her parents since they let her get away with all these things.

  78. goldenchild says – reply to this


    OH WOW. annie leibovitz is a fabulous photographer. apparently, you haven't seen or admired some of her other work outside of the artistic nude shots. please don't question artistic & creative abilities.

  79. sam mum of beautiful says – reply to this


    perez is right annie & her generation should retire.their dark erotic self sexual pendar ways are so outdated.as a mother i cannot believe she dressed that child to an edwardian child prostitue but annie does that with all her shots.there's always an edwardian alien lurking behing her work.dated dated dated.prez proved it by the at least 10 yr old diana ross picture.diana as a classic woman of great talent not a 15yr old child.
    people fight unrentlessly from generation to generation to stop child prostitution from the white house schools everywhere & there's always dated annies around undoing it all with a shutter.
    i met her father years ago he was conceited & dark & i didn't like him then & i certainly don't like anybody that sells their own 15yr old girl.she's 15 i'd believe you too at 15 if you told me it was art.lynsey believed it & so did marilyn.no there's no art just boobs.

  80. mid says – reply to this


    Don't be slammin' Leibovitz. She's good.

  81. Karen says – reply to this


    Number one Miley is like 15, Miss Ross is like 47 1/2, when hers was done (and sorry, not even sexy on Miss Ross). I dont even blame the photographer. Didnt she say her father, as well as her handlers were standing by? So not acceptable. Child pornography as far as I am concerned. My daughter is 16 and I am concerned about how much clevage she is showing at this years junior prom. No wonder Miley is regretfull and remorseful! Poor thing, who is looking out for her?!

  82. sam mum of beautiful says – reply to this


    2ND PART any woman that gets their boobs out has lost.she's lost self respect & her fellow mans respect.a straight man can see a womans breast through water mountain & space.covering up only entices more.when you get your breasts out what anybody is saying is i have nothing but breasts.which is fine but half the population have them too,it's no secret.
    i truely felt for paris mother when i saw the footage of her near to 30's daughter after a prison stay doing a really a bad fart boy impression.you know fart boy;white wishes he could rap so he farts instead.you know fart boy half the men in u.s.a. & canada dress that way.fart boy,your brother your cousin your friend.so paris is fart rapping rub it suck it.i stood back & felt for her mother.dear oh dear.there's been same sex kisses & no knickers now breasts & fart girls. it's wearing all a bit dated isn't it.


  83. k says – reply to this


    love you but annie has more talent than you ever will.
    dont even try and mess with her.
    and you people that think she is not original have clearly never taken a photo class or an art history class or have ANY knowledge of the subject

  84. lyd says – reply to this


    Re: Theresa TMR – seriously, perez…shut your flan hole! Annie Leibovitz is without question the most gifted and accomplished portrait photographer of all time. you contribute nothing to this world…stop criticizing those who do.

  85. Hey Pissface says – reply to this


    Don't fuck with Annie Leibovitz, Perez.

    Stick to useless non-artists and fake celebretards.

    Annie Leibovitz is the most talented and amazing photographer of our time. It's just pretty tragic that Vanity Fair used her talent to photograph this twit kid who's being used by her father to regain his 15 minutes of fame.

    Didn't someone have a cell phone they could use for the "shoot?"

  86. Signe says – reply to this


    You're an idiot… Annie Leibovitz has revolutionized photography, and has taken some of them most iconic pictures of all time. "She Needs To Work Harder" and "Does she have no original ideas left?" are two completely ignorant statements for a celebrity blogger to be saying about a world renowned artist.

    she is a lesbian wasn't that photo a dirty old womans shot?i put a shot about pendar is she one of his?her work screams him.dated.dated.dated.

  89. Annie's HomeGirl says – reply to this


    Why does no one blow the "copy-cat" siren on the Marilyn Monroe shoot with LaLohan? Just because Annie recreates an old idea with the new-age "diva" (which WAS Diana Ross back in the day) does not mean she has no more originality. Through Annie's simplistic view she has publish some of the most renown photos of national figures and celebrities. What other photographers can say that?

  94. drew says – reply to this


    Shut the fuck up, Perez! You can comment and critique all you want, but your arguments are totally unreasonable. If Annie Leibovitz wants to use HER OWN FUCKING IDEA again, so be it. At least she HAS talent unlike a certain someone with a "talent" for petty, meaningless gossip and slander. So before you pathetically start scrambling for blog entry ideas, why don't you take a good look at yourself before you cut others down. Or are you even capable of doing that?

  97. la-dee-da says – reply to this


    If Annie Leibovitz can't remember that one of Diane Ross, can she remember the one she did of Angelina Jolie about 3 years ago? If not is it because Angelina was an adult and smiling and alluring? Perez, weren't you calling Angelina a slut last week for appearing in two-piece swimsuits at age 15-years during modeling auditions ? Couldn't you find the "S" key when you saw Miley's photos?

  98. Skinny says – reply to this


    You should love Annie because she is gay. And she is talented. And she MAKES a product that people want. She should have had better sense than to pose a 15 year old provocatively- it makes her look a little pervy.

  99. brandi says – reply to this


    Shut the hell up. Annie has more talent in her little finger than you do in your entire body.
