Oh no they did not! Seventeen magazine reportedly approached Miley Cyrus for the cover of their May 2014 issue, and when the pop star turned them down…she ended up there anyway!
Not taking no for an answer, Seventeen used a stock photo of Miley for the cover image, and captioned it “100% Confident Miley! The Brave Way She’s Winning Over Everyone — Even Her Haters!”
A spokesperson from Seventeen defended the shady move, saying it was just responding to its audience’s needs. “Seventeen readers love Miley Cyrus, and we cover her every chance we get. She ranked high on the March issue’s “Girl Power List.” Our readers asked for more, so we responded as quickly as possible. Miley’s currently on tour promoting Bangerz, so what better time than now to celebrate her and give our readers what they want?”
Oh, darlings. Perhaps a better time to
sell magazines with celebrate Miley is when she wants to be celebrated. How ironic that she ranked high on the Girl Power List, as Seventeen has taken away her power to choose her covers.
What do you think, minions? Was Seventeen wrong to use Miley for its cover without her consent?
