INTERNATIONAL pop sensation Miley Cyrus and underground hero Bob Dylan have both had intimate photos leaked – just days before their albums go on sale.
Shockingly, representatives for Dylan have yet to answer requests for comment. The 73-year-old’s Instagram account and Twitter have fallen silent in the past 12 hours as his team goes in to damage control.
On the flip side, Cyrus’s PR machine has gone in to overdrive as they look to capitalise on this unfortunate situation.
Media commentators and analysts have questioned whether these leaks were deliberate, as both artists have upcoming releases.
“Bob Dylan is better known for his social media presence,” said one analyst.
“That’s what’s profitable these days, though. Not many artists today have the integrity and appeal of Miley Cyrus.” he said.
Dylan’s latest release will feature no original compositions, which is a far cry from Cyrus’s so-far-untitled next album.
Instead, the album consists of covers of traditional pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, chosen by Dylan himself.
Not much is known about Miley Cyrus’s next album, other than it will be a compilation of “disjointed singles” which is being produced by Quincy Jones.
The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has come a long way after shooting to fame with her debut hit “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” – as the once squeaky clean teenage role model has recently been spending more time taking pictures of her nipples than time spent writing songs.
TMZ.com revealed this morning that Cyrus was inspired to take topless pictures of herself after seeing Bob Dylan do the same on a Malibu Beach.
“Every singer working today in America can be traced back to Bob Dylan,” said Cyrus.
“His influence is everywhere,”
