Miley Cyrus' 'The Last Song' Pushed Back

"The Last Song", an upcoming drama movie toplined by " Hannah Montana " star Miley Cyrus, won't arrive in theaters as planned. This Disney movie has recently undergone schedule changes and is moved from the original release schedule on January 8, 2010 to a new date in April the same year. MTV News reported that the shifting of the release date has been confirmed by a representative for the 16-year-old actress as well as a statement from Disney. "The date is now April 2," the rep revealed the new date for the film's theatrical release. "We found a better release date than January for it. It will open Easter weekend/spring break." A sneak peek to the movie is being presented at shows on Miley's "Wonder World Tour". In mid-September, the actress/singer herself told MTV about it. "Come to my tour! You're gonna see a sneak preview. I do a song for it," she spilled. The song she referred to is "When I Look at You" off the movie's soundtrack. "Wonder World Tour" is Miley's first international concert tour. Featuring Metro Station as a special guest, the tour has been kicked off on September 14 in Portland, Oregon. Miley is expected to perform in 46 shows across United States, before heading to United Kingdom for 10 concerts that wrap up on December 28 in Manchester, England.

Hannah Montana: Miley Cyrus Talks Jonas and Kanye on 'The Jay Leno Show'

The Hannah Montana star's appearance on The Jay Leno Show wasn't as controversial as you might expect from her. Even the host of the program tried his best to cause a bit of controversy with his queries, but Miley Cyrus kept things mild. Trying to throw her off track, one question Jay Leno quickly asked was "Who's your favorite Jonas brother?" Unfortunately for the Niley fans, she dodged any answer that would hint at a romantic reunion. "I'm going to go with Frankie, the little one," the 16-year-old popstar said. Jay Leno had Miley for his "10@10" feature, which means he had ten questions ready for her during her appearance. Another quick inquiry was regarding Miley's new nickname, but even though the fans would like to know why, the discussion wasn't too detailed. "Recently I got the nickname spider-monkey," Miley revealed. She didn't go on to explain, but instead answered another question with more gusto. Yep, it was regarding the hugely publicized Kanye West at the MTV VMAs incident. As many of her fans know, Miley is a friend of singer Taylor Swift. The Hannah Montana musician gave her opinion on the matter, telling Leno what she'd do if she was the victim of Kanye West's insensitivity. "I would've said, 'Rude, disrespectful,' but I think I just would've had to tell him to let me finish my speech," Miley declared. 'So I'm glad she got to do that." Now that she's headlining yet another tour this year, the Disney juggernaut is really getting busier. But if she had the chance to take on another profession, she admitted about her desire to organize weddings. "I'd be a wedding planner. I decided that the other day. I heard somebody putting their wedding together the other day and I was like, yikes, I need to take over." Source Here

'Hannah Montana' Diabetes Episode to Finally Air

Ten months ago, an episode of " Hannah Montana " failed to go on air because parents are complaining that it doesn't portray diabetes in the right way. Good news comes from Disney Channel that the episode called "Sugar, No Sugar" will eventually make it on air under the new title "Uptight (Oliver's Alright)". The episode is about Oliver dealing with the diagnosis that he got diabetes. "Our idea was that Oliver had a really bad case of diabetes and he couldn't eat any sugar and then a lot of the people were saying, 'No, people with diabetes can still eat sugar. This is wrong! You're teaching kids wrong messages'," Mitchel Musso who plays Oliver said back then. Airing on September 20, the episode is slightly altered although the story contains some truth after all. "But it's not wrong," Mitchel added. "There are people out there who cannot have sugar. That's just the way of life." In its statement, Disney said "We sincerely hope you will find that this revised story more accurately incorporates the subject of living with Type 1 diabetes, with the theme of the character Oliver learning to rely on his friends for support, no matter what challenges may arise."

Hannah Montana: Miley Cyrus Does Make Mistakes

Okay, she reasons out that she's 16 and not perfect, so we really shouldn't expect so much from her being the role model of millions of girls worldwide. On her appearance on The Today Show, Miley Cyrus tried to clear up her reputation and told her fans that being in the public eye is difficult when you're human. Humongously famous, yes, but still human. Miley performed at New York's Rockefeller Plaza last week, singing some of her hits like "Party in the U.S.A." and "The Climb." She then discussed what plans she had for her already-successful career. "I want to be able to step out and maybe take a break for a while and write music that inspires me," the Hannah Montana star said. "I think there's always a formula ... I think the best way to do that is put it out of the way and do something new." She also talked about her upcoming movie. "It's gonna be crazy 'cause in January, that's when 'The Last Song' comes out, so that's going to be kind of rad and kind of dark and kind of a drama. And [then I] go back to 'Hannah Montana.' It's going to be great!" As for being in the public eye, she added that she's still bound to make mistakes. Don't we know it. "I'm not here to say I'm perfect 'cause I'm far from it," Cyrus admitted. "My mistakes are kind of a little bit harder because they are in front of millions and millions of people. It's hard sometimes to smile about it, but it also makes you want to try harder the next time." The thing is, the mistakes she's making aren't exactly the kind any other teenager would be caught up in. Still, she'll apologize for whatever she did and the public will accept it, just because she's Miley Cyrus. Normal 16-year-olds can't pull that off, which is why people expect more from this girl. Anyway, MTV News reports that she's due for another appearance on the new Jay Leno Show on September 16. Well, she'll probably start talking about her mistakes again and we'll hear the same old excuses. As Miley implies, let's not expect too much from her then. Source here
