The singer originally issued an apology for the controversial image, which was taken when she was 15.

Miley Cyrus is taking a page out of Demi Lovato’s book in that she’s “sorry Not sorry."

The 25-year-old “Malibu” singer spent her Sunday tweeting some adorable throwback pics of herself, but things took a turn when she shared an old New York Post cover.

The image, which featured a photo of her from a 2008 Vanity Fair photo shoot, had the headline, “Miley’s Shame: TV’s ‘Hannah’ apologizes for near-nude pic.”

Cyrus tweeted the image, writing, “I'M NOT SORRY F**K YOU #10yearsago.”

The Annie Leibovitz image featured Cyrus’ bare back exposed with her body wrapped in a satin sheet. She was 15 when the photo was taken.

When the image originally came out in the Vanity Fair piece, the then-Disney star brushed it off, saying, “I mean I had a big blanket on. And I thought, ‘This looks pretty and really natural.’ I think it’s really artsy.”

Shortly after the image was released, Cyrus issued a statement, apologizing for posing in such a manner. “I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed," she said at the time. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."

At the time Leibovitz also released a statement on the subject, saying, “I’m sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted. Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together, and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little make-up, and I think it is very beautiful."

Cyrus’ image and sound have certainly evolved since her Disney days. Watch the clip below for more!
