This isn’t a good sign. Miley Cyrus, who just turned 18 on November 23rd, was spotted smoking according to E! Online. Their source says Miley was “chain smoking up a storm” while out at dinner with friends, the source added, “she had messy hair and makeup and didn’t look that great,” Miley seems to be having a hard time these days. Since her parents, Billy Ray and Leticia Cyrus, announced their divorce, Miley has slowly been unraveling.
It all started when Miley was spotted by website TMZ drinking alcohol at a club in Madrid, Spain. But to Miley’s credit, in Madrid the drinking age is 18 (even though Miley was 17 at the time). Then, a few weeks later it was announced that she and on/off again boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, split up after dating for a year. After her split with Liam, Miley told reporters that for her 18th birthday all she wanted was for her family to come together. She said, “[My family and I] need time to all be together. I’m not going to go crazy; [just] have a fun party and then maybe take a vacation with my family…because that would be really cool. So that would be rad if we could all go to the beach or something…I have to be near the water and I love doing scuba and going out and being on a boat.” Even though Miley claimed she wasn’t “going crazy” she still continued to unravel.
Then there was Miley’s performance at the 2010 American Music Awards. The performance wasn’t Miley’s best, and maybe that’s because she changed her song from Bret Michaels‘ ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’ to ‘Love and Forgiveness’ at the very last minute. She reportedly refused to perform her song with Bret Michaels due to his part in the affair he reportedly had with her mother. Unfortunately, Miley shouldn’t have changed her song at the last minute because her performance was mediocre, at best. Later, after the AMAs, Miley was spotted – in a black bra and jeans – heavily making out with Nickelodeon star Avan Jogia. To her credit, it was her birthday party.
Some reports have even speculated that Miley feels that her success was a contributing factor in her parents divorce. It seems that Miley is slowly walking down the same road Lindsay Lohan walked down just a few years ago, but prehaps someone can get through to her and tell her that partying and drinking is no way to deal with your problems. Hopefully Miley and her family can rise above all of this and allow this unfortunate situation to make them stronger.
