Exhibit A: Miley Cyrus, bare-backed, a sheet covering her chest in an Anne Leibowitz photo in an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.  Looks like Hannah Montana just had sex. “It’s really artsy,” the 15-year-old Disney star says in the magazine interview. “Excruciating creepy,” said a CNBC entertainment analyst. Fans are appalled. Miley apologizes: “I’m so embarrassed.” Disney can let the fuss blow over; it probably has a new preteen star waiting in the wings.

Exhibit B: Vanessa Hudgens, now 19, poses for GQ. Cute and all grown up. She’s put her nude photo scandal behind her. Her attitude: “If you have paparazzi, you know you’ve gotten somewhere.” She’s definitely ready for her post-High School Musical career
