UPDATE 6/9: The rest of the photos from Cyrus' spread with Paper have been released. The shoot's creative direction was done by Diane Martel, an accomplished music video director who worked with Cyrus on the modern art-inspired "We Can't Stop" video, and also made Nicki Minaj's "Pills N' Potion." The body paint seen on Cyrus was done by artist Ben Jones.
Cyrus also explained in the corresponding interview that she has made a habit of being naked ever since she used to ride around her family's farm in the buff. There's also some generally wild quotes from the pop star. For example: "I'm standing there with my tits out, dressed like a butterfly. How the fuck is that fair? How am I so lucky?" she said.

The limits of "She's just being Miley" have officially been pushed.
Miley Cyrus' latest magazine cover with Paper is one of the most bizarre you'll ever see. The publication, which also famously released 2014's most talked about cover with Kim Kardashian, shows Cyrus posing nude with her arms wrapped around a pig for its Summer 2015 issue.
Paper offers no explanation for the cover, but adds that the rest of the shoot features "a glass pyramid, some body paint, and very little clothing."
The Summer 2015 issue, featuring Cyrus along with Al Gore, Pharrell Williams, hits newstands on June 22.
