miley cyrus jogs 06

Remember those Miley Cyrus jogging photos from yesterday that made it seem like she was itching for a photo op? Miley says that wasn’t what that was about. There’s a perfectly reasonable explanation, actually. From Us:

But Cyrus shot back: “I don’t get why people are allowed to take pictures and make them something they’re not, but I guess that’s just how their job works and how they’ll make the most money.”

So why was she dressed so skimpy?

Cyrus said she was with her 8-year-old little sister, who “wanted to have a car wash. So I was like, ‘OK, we’re going to have a car wash.’”

They agreed to wash Gaston’s “really hideous truck.”

“It’s, like, 100 degrees out,” said Cyrus, who wore shorts and a bathing suit top under her mom’s baggy T-shirt.

“As I’m running, it got a little bit lower and you could see a little of the bathing suit top,” Cyrus said. “So, oh my goodness, Miley Cyrus wears a two-piece! Kill me! I’m wearing a two-piece. … with an 8-year old.”

Oh, ok. So the real photo op was when Miley soaped up Justin’s truck in a two-piece. Like in those movies or that Jessica Simpson’s music video. Gotcha. And this was all suggested by Miley’s 8-year-old sister. Either that’s a really convenient excuse or Miley’s sister is a huge pervert.
