Turns out there’s another Bangerz cover out there and it’s Miley Cyrus baring all. Rolling Stone reports the cover is one of five available for the deluxe version of Miley’s upcoming album. Fans are invited to vote from 3 p.m. EST today (September 18) through October 13 at Miley's Facebook for their favorite picture, which will become the official deluxe cover.
ORIGINAL STORY (8/28/2013)
Teddy bears are nowhere to be seen in the cover shoot for Miley Cyrus’s forthcoming album Bangerz. Instead, the 20-year-old channels a definite retro vibe with her slicked back hair and use of tropical neon.
One rejected image from the shoot shows Miley bearing butt cheek as she glances over her right shoulder, possibly to see if Robin Thicke is behind her. Other images feature Miley clutching a bouquet of roses, holding some balloons, and grabbing her nether regions.
The cover option Miley did end up choosing looks to be a mash-up of several of the photos with her cutout image appearing against snapshots of palm trees and “bangerz” lit up in neon.
So far two songs have been released from the album, which is due out October 8. One of the songs, “Wrecking Ball,” was sent forth into the world with Miley’s permission; the other, “23” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, was leaked yesterday. Also rumored to be on the album is a collaboration with fellow pop princess Britney Spears.
What do you think? Did Miley make the right call with her cover or would you have picked one of the other photos? Bang away on that keyboard and tell us below!
