Miley strips down yet again

Miley Cyrus apparently can’t stop getting naked.

A week after the news broke that the 21-year-old pop star posed nude in a photo shoot for W magazine, the “Wrecking Ball” singer tweeted the racy covers from an upcoming German edition of Vogue. The photos feature her wearing, well, barely anything at all.
