Hannah Montana: Miley Cyrus Releases "The Climb"
Hannah Montana: Miley Cyrus Releases "The Climb"
There's a new Miley song for fans to sing along to, but it's not due for radio play until tomorrow.  Luckily, the Internet, which has long been our friend, has made “The Climb” available to stream in high quality.  It's from the soundtrack of Hannah Montana: The Movie, and devotees of the musician can finally tune in and listen.

Found on this link , “The Climb” was first performed by the teenage pop sensation last January 19.  Of course, many remember this as the “Kids Inaugural: We Are the Future” concert held in Washington, D.C.  It was the free gig celebrating the presidential ceremony of Barack Obama.  Miley Cyrus was joined by her fellow Disney stars, the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Corbin Bleu, for the event.

As fans probably enjoyed the song, they'll be even more elated to know that their favorite star will be performing at the 2009 Grammy Awards.  Miley Cyrus will be taking the stage for a duet with fellow musician Taylor Swift.  The two are set to work on the single “Fifteen,” coming from Swift's second studio album, Fearless.

But for her performance on Sunday, Miley might have to think up a public apology for the controversy she recently got involved in.  The picture of her slanting her eyes with her friends has been leaked, and comments on racism have been plaguing the news.  Critics have reacted, telling her that what she did was stereotypical, even offending many of her fans.

It's only a big deal because Miley Cyrus has millions of kids looking up to her, which is certainly a lot of responsibility for a 16-year old.  Even so, she should take it upon herself to work hard at being a role model.  She's been tied up with one issue after another already, and that's tough when you're working in an industry that relies heavily on your image.
