Terry Richardson photoshoot: Miley Cyrus

With her edgy hair cut, racy music video and increasingly flesh-flashing stage outfits, Miley Cyrus has been clearly keen to put her Disney Hannah Montana alter ego well and truly behind her.

And her new Terry Richardson photoshoot will put paid to any lingering doubts that Miley is intent on pushing a few more boundaries.

One photo shows the 20-year-old smoking a cigarette, blowing smoke out of her scarlet pout, while another features the star grabbing her crotch.
