Oh my god, I think I have a coffee hangover! How is that possible? That's the last time I drink about 5 cups of coffee before I go to bed. I couldn't sleep at all last night, and now my tummy feels a little funky. Why did I drink so much coffee? Well, I was helping out a friend doing a blind coffee tasting. I hate coffee on a good day, the only good cup of coffee I've ever had in my life was in Venice. So this morning, I had to drink tea, because I just couldn't face a cup of joe.
I turn on the computer this morning and people are still debating the Miley Cyrus photos in Vanity Fair. All I have to say is that her parents and her handlers were with her on the shoot, they all looked at the photos as they were being shot. The only reason they are backtracking now is because there was a hue and cry about them looking like child pornography. If anyone had been praising the photos, Disney and Miley would be crowing about how brilliant Annie Leibowitz is (and she is brilliant). Don't blame Vanity Fair or Annie Leibowitz. Let's face it, its a coup that they wanted Miley on the cover and its not even the July or January issues which are usually the ones where they put untried celebrities. They didn't take advantage of poor, little Miley. That girl is as tough as old boots. This isn't the first time she's had to explain herself for racy photos. The other times, the photos were taken by her and her friends.
She's clearly a teenage girl, testing her boundaries, only this time on the cover of a major publication. The photos are no more racy then anything Britney did for her first album. Remember the picture of her on the cover of Rolling Stone, in her little skimpy bra and panties? When teenagers starlets/singers have to start posing so provacatively? I don't remember this happening with Connie Francis and Sandra Dee, not to mention Marie Osmond. Even Hilary Duff was smarter and savvier but then was Vanity Fair and Annie Leibowitz calling?
On to more fun stuff, next week, my friend Leanna Renee Heiber will be visiting the blog to celebrate her new release Dark Nest from Crescent Moon Press. So stay tuned for her interview on Monday.
