Too Much Twerk? Miley Cyrus' Vogue Cover Canceled

Just when we thought the VMA controversy was over, rumors have spread that Miley Cyrus' cover for the December issue of Vogue has been nixed because of her much-lambasted performance during the awards show. Hollywood News Daily has an unnamed insider saying that Anna Wintour was so appalled by Cyrus' antics, she decided to scrap all the photos from the shoot.
However, we did a little digging and it seems that the cover was never set in stone and a photo shoot had even yet to transpire. Rather, it was an idea the magazine was toying with, but has since decided against (though we can only speculate as to why). Certainly, it's not exactly the Miley vs. Anna showdown the initial reports described (shocker, huh). Still, it's not surprising that Cyrus would be pegged for the cover, especially as fashion glossies have become reliant on big-name celebrities to sell copies. After all, the ever-classy Harper's Bazaar didn't have much of a problem featuring Cyrus in full-blown couture — though we have to wonder if they're quietly shuffling that issue out of the spotlight now.
Cyrus' approach to more formally orchestrated coverage and interviews has been rather interesting since she debuted her newly revamped image (vamp being the key idea), steering away from some of the more major fashion mags and going for alternatives like Billboard and Notion. A lot of publicists would say that securing a Vogue cover is an absolute necessity for a star looking to legitimize a new image, but we wouldn't be surprised if the folks over at Camp Miley aren't fussing over this. In fact, given her intense desire to be subversive, maybe Cyrus herself feels that Vogue is a little too high-brow for her brazen, Molly-induced persona? Frankly, we wouldn't be surprised if Ms. Cyrus pops up on the cover of CR Fashion Book in the next year. The equally high-end, and in many ways, more exclusive magazine is known for its surprising cover girls. We're just putting it out there so that in case Carine Roitfeld does swoop in, we can say we told you so. Either way, Cyrus is probably one of the few people on earth who can have the media eating out of her hand without Wintour's explicit approval, so we surely won't be hearing the end of her any time soon.
