Miley Cyrus isn't passionate about acting.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer - who shot to fame aged 12 after starring in Disney TV show Hannah Montana - is no longer interested in appearing in movies because she hates having to pretend to be someone else.
"I'm just not passionate about acting, because I don't like to pretend to be somebody I'm actually not. Why should I put on strange characters? I prefer to show my true colors as the real Miley Cyrus," she said.
The 21-year-old star also spoke out to demand more "tolerance" in the world and admitted she doesn't understand how discriminatory attitudes are still held in the modern world: "I think a lot about politics. Despite the fact that it's the 21st century and America is so proud of being a free country, sometimes incomprehensible things happen in our society. There is racism and discrimination. I fight against that. I demand more tolerance, especially for homosexuals, who of course should be allowed to marry.
“I want to put my family back together,” Billy Ray Cyrus, one-hit wonder and father to Miley Cyrus, will tell The View on Friday. “Things are the best they’ve ever been.” Thanks to the recent progress, Billy Ray will put a halt to his divorce plans and stay in his marriage (which, so far, has lasted 17 years).
“I feel like I got my Miley back, in a way,” he revealed at the Thursday taping. “I feel like we are the daddy and daughter that we were before Hannah Montana happened.” Minus a few years, some questionable photos and a salvia-smoking scandal, of course.
Billy Ray and wife Tish issued a joint statement about their disintegrating marriage in October. In a later interview with GQ, the country singer blamed Hannah Montana for “destroying” his family.
But on The View, he’ll change his tune. “I don’t think Hannah Montana ruined my family,” he backpedaled. “Now fame, fame is a different animal. You’ve got to be careful with that thing.” Or, so he’s heard.

She might not be old enough to get a sponsored bash in Las Vegas, but she’ll certainly be old enough to take your money.
For Miley Cyrus’ upcoming birthday, the teen star will be celebrating at the place responsible for her career: The Land of Disney. On October 5, the soon-to-be Sweet 16-er (whose actual birthday is November 23) will take over Disneyland in California…and she’s allowing paying ‘friends’ to join her.

Even though Nick Jonas is hesitant to talk about the women in his life, his older brother doesn’t seem to have a problem sharing his opinions.
Just days learning about the love Miley Cyrus and Nick used to share, Kevin Jonas wore a very telling shirt outside of the band’s New York City hotel.
I mean - if one were to wear a “Team Demi and Selena” tee, that would mean that they were endorsing a side, right?

Now that rumors of a romance between Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez have surfaced, Miley Cyrus has suspiciously decided to speak out her two year relationship with the boy bander. It’s the first time she has even acknowledged dating him.
In the September issue of Seventeen, the singer pulls a Jessica Simpson and talks about the love the two used to share. (Oh dear - these two are only 15. What they heck do they really know about love?)
“Nick and I loved each other. We still do, but we were in love with each other. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun.”

We said there would be more to come - and now they’ve arrived.
Almost three weeks after the last round of Miley Cyrus photos were released, another set from her stolen camera have just been unveiled. While Miley predictably gives us more shots of her midriff, we’ve thankfully been spared from another shower scene. We also get a nice air kiss to boot.
(You can find more stories about Miley and her photos here.)

And just when I thought that the world could possibly go for at least a week without Miley Cyrus news, the troubled pre-teen is catapulted into the spotlight yet again—thanks to a condom company, at that!
It was reported that Lifestyles Condoms wants the Hannah Montana star to be their new spokesgirl.
“Pop culture proves that teens are more ready than ever to discuss the subject of sex,” says the company’s VP of marketing, Carol Carrozza. “We believe that Miley is both influential and relatable to this afflicted set — and is the obvious choice to get the message of safe sex out to teens across America.”
As hilariously entertaining as this latest Miley Cyrus “news” is, one can never forget about that slightly powerful and daunting company called Disney, which is always shielding their cash cow at every constant news flash. In this case, what are they going to do? Deny everything, of course.
“We never received an offer, nor would she consider the offer,” her rep stated, although judging by all of those photos, Miley seems like she would be the best gal for promoting sex!

UPDATE: You can hear Miley delivering a weak explanation for her video here.
Thank goodness I wrote that tween primer the other day. Otherwise, I’d probably have no clue who half these girls were.
When I mentioned that Selena Gomez was now linked to Nick Jonas, I forgot to mention one minor detail: Nick Jonas was previously linked to Miley Cyrus. That last piece of information is important because it’s believed to be the reason behind Miley’s recent YouTube parody.
In the following clip, you will see a video made by Selena Gomez and friend Demi Lovato. You will also see Miley and her friend, Mandy, doing their best impressions of the two girls. Do you think Hannah Montana was being funny…or was she simply acting nasty?
Whether it be on an iPhone or on home video, Miley sure does love to expose her true colors!

In an attempt to raise money for her family’s charity (and probably sound good PR for herself), Miley Cyrus is auctioning off a “meet and greet” with her at an upcoming red carpet event.
The person who bids the most money for the Pappy Cyrus Family Foundation - an organization that supports underprivileged children - will have the opportunity to join the singer at the November premiere of Bolt, an animated Disney film Cyrus is a part of. The bidding, which began last night and ends July 29, currently stands at just over $2000. (I believe parents paid just about that much for tickets to her last concert tour.)
Other items up for grabs in the eBay auction include clothing actually worn by the star and autographed posters and cds. You can learn more about the fundraiser from Miley in a video clip found after the jump.
