Yes, Miley strips again

Yes, Miley strips again

He's the man who directed the controversial Wrecking Ball video.

And now the man who got former Disney star Miley Cyrus to swing on top of a giant ball stark naked is at it again.

This time, Terry Richardson has returned to what he does best - shooting photographs.

And he hasn't let up.

The celebrity lensman has shot a series of nearnude photographs of the former teen star.

In one photo, Cyrus, 20, shows a nipple in a seethrough top. In others, she flashes her bum in an outrageously cut red-hot leotard and showcases her crotch in lacy tights.

Another shot has her sticking out her tongue and holding a drink can at her crotch in a vulgar pose.

Why are we not surprised?

Not just because it's the new Cyrus, but also because it's Richardson, who himself has set tongues wagging with his controversial photographic style that often borders on soft porn.

Remember Glee's Lea Michele and her benchstraddling pose in GQ three years ago?

What about Mila Kunis in the transparent topand- knickers combo on the same magazine in 2011?

Having worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Paris Hilton and even President Barack Obama, it's no wonder Richardson is reportedly the top-earning photographer this year with an estimated US$58 million (S$72 million) in yearly earnings.

But the US-born photographer has also been accused of inappropriate behaviour during shoots.

In 2010, The Guardian reported that Danish model-turned-film-maker Rie Rasmussen had confronted Richardson at a party during Paris Fashion Week about his "degrading" work.
