Noah Cyrus took a leaf out of this week’s social media playbook for her big sister.
Just days after Miley Cyrus went to Instagram to post a photo of herself lying naked in the bathtub, Noah’s younger sister posted on the social media website a remarkably similar picture.
The image of Noah was her way of promoting a recent album, and the post in the tub showing her — which can be seen below — received a big reaction from fans of the 21-year-old singer.
The image showed Noah reclining in the nude in a white bathtub, but she managed to use some careful positioning to avoid being completely exposed. She leaned to her hand and stared up at the sky, much of her body under the water’s surface.
In the photo, Noah kept her arm across her chest, preventing her from violating the strict rules of Instagram against explicit nudity. With the space darkened and a black-and-white checkered tile floor underneath the pool, the grainy photo gave off an artistic vibe.
Like Noah, to avoid running afoul of Instagram’s no-nudity rules, Miley used a strategically positioned shoulder. The image showed her relaxing in the water while wearing a mask with a white face. In the caption, Miley wrote that by obviously failing to go out, she had’ failed the Saturday gods.’
But Miley seemed to have earned the day to rest after having worked hard in recent weeks, as Pop Culture noted.
The video for the song showed shocking photos of Noah getting into a bathtub to illustrate her weakness, according to Rolling Stone.
“In the song’s Tyler Shields-directed video, Cyrus is seen in various stages of vulnerability, stripped bare emotionally and physically,” the outlet wrote. “Passionate shared scenes with her paramour are woven between intimate solo moments, which include her caressing herself and also reflecting in a bathtub.”
The picture of Noah caught some viral attention, racking up more than 185,000 likes after being shared in just a few hours. The racy snap also won her fans plenty of positive comments.
“Gorgeous,” one commenter wrote.
“In love with this pic,” added another, ending the comment with a heart-eyes emoji.
Some left a collection of emoticons of heart and fire to express their love with Noah.
Some fans praised Noah for her latest single, with some of them in the comments section citing the lyrics.
