Miley Cyrus: The World According to Miley

Cyrus, Miley: The World According to Miley

What more could a teenage girl want than to have the run of Disneyland for her not-so-private birthday party? But that's what life is like for Miley Cyrus these days. The daughter of singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who had a hit in the early nineties with "Achy Breaky Heart," Miley has followed in her Dad's footsteps, forging a singing career under her own name after two years of playing and releasing material as Hannah Montana. Miley shot to stardom in 2006, playing the title role of Hannah Montana for the Disney TV channel. The success of the series, along with the soundtrack, concerts, and merchandise, transformed Miley into an overnight sensation. Surrounded by a supportive family, her career has been managed by her father, who knows only too well the highs and lows of life in the limelight. "He always said that Hollywood's a heartbreak waiting to happen," Miley reflects. "And I think that's totally true." With a loving family and a good mentor by her side, Miley seems well-placed to survive the media circus and the traps of tinsel town, but is she capable of staying on the straight and narrow, as her star continues to rise? Produced by Switch Intl. 2013 JSCA 30 min.
