Miley Cyrus thanks photographer for not editing armpit hair

Miley Cyrus has thanked a photographer for not photoshopping her armpit hair.

The controversial pop star has shared the picture from the photoshoot - where she is lifting a shirt over her head revealing her perfectly toned stomach - hitting out at "some" people who have edited out the hair on her underarms before.

The caption posted on Instagram on Monday read: "Thank you for not retouching my body hair like SOME people #comeasyouare #iloveyou. (sic)."

The image, which has 331 thousand likes, has received mixed views from her 22.9 million followers.

One follower responded: "No one lyks de new u dey lyk de old u. (sic)"

While another fan asked for the "old" Miley to come back.

The fan posted: "You made it to a million so are you going to bring the old Miley back. (sic)?"

While another wrote:" I didn't even notice the hair. Love you Miley!!! Youre great. (sic)"

The 22-year-old 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker joins the likes of Madonna who has also flaunted hair on under her arms before.

Last year, the 'B**** I'm Madonna' singer shared a picture to Instagram with the caption that read: "Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove.(sic)"
