“Wrecking Ball” singer Miley Cyrus emerged from last year’s infamous celebrity nude hack, colloquially known as “The Fappening,” unscathed, but the former Disney star has no qualms when it comes to nudity. The starlet posed mostly naked for a photo shoot with Interview magazine. That’s right, these nude photos were planned.

There are four pictures of Cyrus, 22, topless and wearing only a thong. One shows her posing with a guitar, another is just the top of her body. She licks the floor in a different picture, and in the final photo she touches her nether regions. We’d share a link to the explicit images, but our editors would balk at that. 

So why did the singer do a nude photo shoot? Well, she’s just being Miley, of course! The images were all done through a FaceTime call with photographer Mert Alas. “Sometimes you have to reach out and touch someone-slash-yourself,” Interview wrote about Cyrus’ pictures. “Mert Alas shares a few of his sexts with the fearless and self-possessed princess of pop.”

While she’s the most revealing one, Cyrus isn’t the only celebrity posing for Alas. Top names in the game like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Zayn Malik, Victoria Beckham and Selena Gomez posed for the #ME issue of Interview, which pays tribute to the top social media celebs.

Keith Pollock, editor-in-chief of the magazine, said the stars were asked to pose in a way that would be a portrait of themselves. Kardashian covered her naked body with bedsheets, Lopez did a side-facing selfie-style picture and Gomez scrunched her face. Of course, most everyone knows what Cyrus decided to do, tongue and all.

“Our aim was to allow them to create an image that reflects the way the subjects see themselves. And the way they want to be seen,” Pollock told Us Weekly Tuesday. “We invited each subject to use this opportunity to create something powerful and personal: the utmost expression of themselves. We definitely encouraged them to push the limits, but we weren’t interested in steering them in any way.”

Cyrus apparently likes getting nude because she’s “trying very hard to figure life out,” an insider told Hollywood Life in an exclusive report Thursday. “She had to grow up and be a professional by the time she was 13 on ‘Hannah Montana,’ so she never got to have a proper childhood,” the source continued.

“She’s living out her childhood now that she’s an adult, and is constantly seeing how far she can go before she gets punished,” the anonymous person added. “She knows a great way to do that is by stripping her clothes off -- getting nude is Miley’s way of getting people to talk about her. She’s learned to love attention and still wants it all the time.”
