Justin Timberlake, whose first taste of fame was in Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club when he was a child, is sympathizing with Miley Cyrus on the media drama she’s been going through after the racy Vanity Fair photos she took became public and he is convinced the media deliberately targets “wholesome” teen stars in an attempt to create scandal around them.
He tells MTV.com:
“Of course they’re going to pick (on) a wholesome, American, young female (for) the first sign of anything. Unfortunately, there’s a picture of her that’s published with her in just a blanket. And that’s the photo, that’s the catalyst. But that’s also the age we live in. People want to take a photo, and that’s who you are for a year’s time. We’ve all become victims of that.”
And he admits he feels so sorry for her and would love to defend her by making a fashion statement, joking:
“I’m gonna make ‘Leave Miley Alone’ T-shirts.”
