Miley Cyrus, star of the hit Disney series, Hannah Montana, recently broke the record for being the youngest artist to have two Billboard chart-topping albums in under a year.  Her second two-disc album, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus, sold 326,000 copies, beating out Kelly Clarkson’s My December.  The record-breaking sales are certainly a big accomplishment for the 14-year-old actress-singer, but surprisingly, she is experiencing little success in the most popular music medium: radio. Despite the numerous Hannah Montana fans and avid listeners of the show’s music, Miley Cyrus’ singing prowess has yet to be heard on Top 40 Radio.  Unfortunately for Disney, Hannah Montana is not the only musical act that they are having trouble marketing in mainstream radio.  "The Cheetah Girls" and "Aly and AJ" have managed to earn gold, platinum and multiplatinum CD sales, yet they have been continuously left out of Top 40.  The High School Musical soundtrack, which was the bestselling album of 2006, also did not make the popular radio format. Read more »

After months of silence, Billy Ray Cyrus has finally publicly addressed his daughter Miley’s controversial Vanity Fair photo shoot. Back in April, the Hannah Montana star was extremely embarrassed when pictures taken by celebrity photographer Annie Liebowitz hit the internet. The picture that drew the most criticism and backlash was one of the 15 year old wrapped only in a blanket and showing her bare back. Miley immediately apologized to her fans while Liebowitz defended her photograph, saying that it was “a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup.” Billy Ray gave his perspective today to Meredith Viera on The Today Show. Read more »
Where are Miley‘s parents when they‘re most needed? When Miley posed for a Vanity Fair photo shoot earlier this year, neither Tish nor Billy Ray Cyrus were anywhere to be found. Only the Disney star‘s manager chaperoned the shoot, but didn‘t step in when celebrity photographer Annie Liebovitz asked the 15 year old to take her clothes off. What resulted was a photo of Miley Cyrus, wrapped only in a blanket, in a very provocative photo. Miley apologized, Annie defended, and the media ate it up. Besides the Vanity Fair pictorial, Miley has posted some sexy photos of her own, from kissing other girls to showing off her lingerie to crawling all over several different boys. While BuddyTV readers have defended her, saying that she‘s just been a teen, they might change their tune when they find out the new fan base Miley has picked up as a result of her new sexy image. Read more »
