'Hannah Montana' Soundtrack Dominates Billboard Hot 100; Miley Stays Strong
In addition to topping the box office since its premiere, Hannah Montana: The Movie has proven that Miley Cyrus' music has further gripped the attention of fans and critics alike.  On the recent Billboard Hot 100, the tween sensation managed to snag six spots for songs straight off the soundtrack of her big screen hit. 

The Hannah Montana songs have spanned the most recent singles chart, taking places from No. 8 to No. 88.  Included in the chart are the favorites "The Climb" (No. 8) as well as Miley's duet with her father Billy Ray Cyrus, titled "Butterfly Fly Away" (No. 72).  Also climbing the charts is Taylor Swift's "Crazier," which made its way to No. 38. 

While The Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" remains enthroned in the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100, the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack is quickly keeping up.  Other songs that have made it to the charts are "Hoedown Throwdown" on No. 28 and "Let's Get Crazy" at No. 75.  As for No. 88, it's Hannah Montana's own track, "You'll Always Find Your Way Back Home."

With all this success, there's no doubt the reigning Disney princess will be satisfied.  Her tough break with comedian Jamie Foxx might have dampened her spirits, but she's fighting back with her career.  A family member of hers talked to the Examiner, saying, "Miley is well aware that her mega celebrity status makes her an easy target. But she is a very strong person - both inside and out - and will do everything she can to stay true to herself." 

It's not unusual to say that Cyrus has had plenty of negative attention, since it comes with being a celebrity.  However, the insider (who wishes to remain anonymous) can't help but give a warning to the people responsible for reproaching the 16-year-old star:  "To all those people putting down Miley, I ask what is it about yourself that would make you say such horrible things about a human being you don't even know?"
