Pop star Miley Cyrus, who has attracted widespread controversy for her antics in recent times, has shed clothes for a magazine shoot.
The 21-year-old singer is featured in the 91st edition of V Magazine - titled The Rebel Issue - wearing a furry blue cutout bathing suit surrounded by stuffed animals, reports hollywoodlife.com.
"I know that I'm not a pop, pop dumb, dumb," said Cyrus.
"I'm a lot more than someone who just goes and shakes her ass onstage. I think it's kind of funny to mess with people and rile them up, because I'm actually the most chill person and it's just funny to watch the world get out of their minds over things that are so irrelevant and don't matter," she added.
The naked photo, which is shot for fashion brand Karl Lagerfeld, is accompanied by a quote from the designer that reads: "Your body is youth incarnate. I think, in fact, you are a very decent girl and well educated, you just like to provoke. What is more fun than to shock the bourgeois anyway?"
