Miley Cyrus is not the same girl you once saw playing the role of Hannah Montana and she is letting the world know this by taking back her apology which she made almost 10 years ago after she posed for a near-naked picture. The singer initially had told in an interview with People that she was "embarrassed" by the picture but it seems like she has had a change of mind.

Taking to Twitter, Miley posted the image on the cover of the New York Post and tweeted she was not sorry for what happened 10 years ago.The image became a debatable topic at that time because Miley had been winning the hearts of many with her role as Hannah Montana in the hit Disney Channel series. The kids at that time saw her as a role model and people believed that it was inappropriate for her to pose for such a picture knowing that there were many young kids who looked up to her. 

Annie Leibovitz, the photographer behind the shot, believed that the picture of Miley was "beautiful" but failed to show that to the people as it had been “misinterpreted.” Before sharing the nude picture, Miley first took to her Twitter to share some of the other pictures that she had shared at that time. 

While she holds no regrets about the photoshoots she has done in the past, she does regret the sexy Wrecking Ball video which was shot in 2013 by shock snapper Terry Richardson. The racy picture showed Miley straddle a wrecking ball nude and also lick a sledgehammer. 

Talking on Zach Sang Show, Miley noted that even if she tried to make people forget about the video, what was done had been done and there was nothing she could do about it. "That’s something you can’t take away, swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever," she said. "Once you do that…it’s forever. I’m never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on the wrecking ball."

"I just licked a sledgehammer. I should have thought how long that was going to follow me around. That’s my worst nightmare is that being played at my funeral," she continued. In the past, Miley has been criticized for her recklessness but the singer seems to avoid all the negativity by staying true to herself without paying attention to what the world might have to say.
