After all the racy action she's gotten herself into, 20-year-old Miley Cyrus goes topless for her first Rolling Stone cover. The picture is the final foot stomp, calling out for the world to say goodbye to her Disney version.

The singer of 'We Can't Stop' poses topless, leaning over the edge of a pool, dripping wet. With her tongue hanging out, raccoon eyes and slicked-back hair, she attempts to embrace the image of a rock star who just doesn't care.

Her interview in the magazine, set to release on October 10, reveals just as much as her half-naked picture on the front cover. The former child star addresses her controversial performance at the VMAs when she danced dirty with 36-year-old Robin Thicke. She also answers questions about the relationship with her family, her friendship with Kanye West and her thoughts on the media's variegated views on her sensual new image.

The topless image makes a bold statement about who Miley wants to be recognized as. So to all those holding on, it's time to say goodbye to Hannah Montana, because this new Miley wants to stay. Stats for Disrobed Disney Star Covers Trending: Older & Buzzing
