There are sexually suggestive photos of Miley Cyrus, the supposedly “wholesome” Disney Channel starlet, in Vanity Fair. There’s the suggestion of bare breasts, but you don’t actually see a breast. Annie Leibovitz is the photographer. The controversy has even made the pages of the NY Times. Parents in flyover country are mad.
I am thinking that the line between art and child pornography is pretty fine. A few years ago, some guys were prosecuted for being child pornographers and spent time in federal custody. Their crime was posting pictures of young girls on the internet and charging people money to view them, even though none of the photos showed nudity. (I'm not sure what happened to them, if they are in prison now or if they were found not guilty.)
