After making headlines this year for her skimpy outfits, sexually charged performances, and smoking salvia from a bong, Miley Cyrus has vowed to be a changed woman in 2011. In a recorded message to fans, the 18-year-old “Hannah Montana” star claims she is dedicating her life to helping others.
“I’m really looking forward to 2011,” says Cyrus, who is seen coloring with her 10-year-old sister Noah. “ I’ve got some new ideas, I want to go on some cool trips, I want to travel, I want to make this the year that I go out and do what I’m here to do, and that’s to help people and make people happy.”
That would certainly be a relief to her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus. After video of Miley smoking the hallucinogenic herb salvia surfaced earlier this month, he apologized to fans and tweeted, “Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. I’m so sad.”
Though Cyrus and wife Tish are currently in the midst of a divorce, they managed to spend quality time in Tennessee with their children over the holidays. Miley and Noah even did a karaoke duet of the teen star’s song “Can’t Be Tamed,” according to a tweet from their big sis Brandi.

I hope she has a wonderful 2011, and does all the things she plans to do. I think it's admirable that she wants to help others.
She is 18 years old, and unfortunately all her mistakes are broadcast world wide. I know I was no saint at 18, and lord forbid it was splashed all over the internet and tabloids. She is going to make mistakes, and we all can't say we never did at that age. I don't condone a lot of her decisions, but I cannot condemn her for them. I just hope she makes better decisions this coming year, and continues to become a strong independent woman.
Why would ANY parent allow their kid to watch anything this Cyrus kid is on? Do yourself a favor, turn off the Disney channel and turn on the history channel.
I think Bristol Palin would make a good role model for her...they can rub their whisker buscuits.
I hope she poses in playboy.
she should resolve to at least try and stay out of the news due to nudie pics, etc, seeing as how within days of her 18th birthday another wave of leaked cellphone pics hit the net.
she has absolutely no one in her life that is trying to keep her going in the right direction...
new year is 4 days from now, she probably wont even need a resolution by then.
Can anyone name a decent role-model these days.
bill hicks was the last. miley wont be smoking any more of that of that navajo mambojahambo crap on youtube in 2011, she'll be smokn' someones pole.
Drugs destroying our society? LMAO!!! thats hillarious. Some one's been brainwashed by their church. The problem with society is not drugs, its that parents don't parent, they let celebrities and TV raise their kids.
go miley!! do what you want & be who u wanna be, and hopefully thats the best person you can b!
I CAN SEE ANOTHER BRITNEY SPEARS ON HER.... PROBABLY WORSE HAHAHA
THE WORST QUESTION OF THE YEAR!!!! CNN HAS LOST CREDIBILITY...
What part of her saying she is going to travel and do pretty much what she wants to next year say anything about helping others...
Here's a very good question. Why do we care so much about some 18 year old brat when we have issues such as a debt over $13 trillion, high unemployment, North Korea starting issues, and our men and women are fighting in a war that should've ended years ago. Lets ask questions like, why is the government overspending and then making cuts in unnecessary areas of the budget to compensate? Let's leave the celebrity fantasies alone and fix what actually matters!
I thought her New Years Resolution was to get some new cinder blocks for the double wide back home.
And "ya know?" no more "like this...like...like..." Are we even sure, with a voice like that, that's she's even a girl?
First I have to say im not a huge fan of Mileys music, or TV show... the Last Song was ok. So it is not out of love for her work that I am going to attempt to defend her. Who cares if she got caught smoking Salvia? So she made a mistake.... I find it hard to believe that NOT ONE of these complaining parents have ever made a mistake. And Im sure ALL of them have done a perfect job raising thier own children, who also have NEVER EVER made a mistake. And as far as her "Racy" music video... get used to it because she is in the entertainment industry. It all comes down to business and guess what, shes making money which is the whole point. If you're worried that her actions are going to corrupt your precious children then why dont you turn off your TV and computer once in awhile and take them outside.... remember the outdoors? Be a role model for them yourselves instead of expecting others to do it.
Maybe this year, she'll learn to stand straight like an adult, use more words than "ya know?" and close her legs.
where does she live? i've got to find her. do you think she's done it yet? i'm lookin 4 a good girl. how old is billy? i just don't want to be older than him
First she'd like to find someone to pay her a lot of money to get naked.
Second to be done by 5 or more guys at the same time.....I can't be tamed
Miley Cyrus was o.k. on the Hanna Montana show but the girl has a terrible voice and cannot sing!!!
To not get an STD or land in rehab.............
My New Year's resolution is to ignore any story about Miley Cyrus.
The REAL question should be... why wouldn't anyone give a sheet WHAT Miley thinks... or does... As the media keeps on FEEDING us the endless BS the just feeds are countries ignorance.
Learn to act? Learn to sing? Learn to act like an adult and not a spoiled child?
Wow, I have never seen so many rude, stupid comments in my life. You were all teenagers at one time. In fact, why don't you go check on your own kids. They are probably trying to be Lindsay also
go to oprah, go to oprah
18 = Playboy / Penthouse :) Patience people.... patience lol
with lohan in the pics with her.
Another Lindsay Lohan in the making....
I think a crotch shot while drunk should be next on her agenda.
Well she has a tat on her breast she likes showing off , so , my guess will be piercings on her nether region........Oh, and she'll show that off too... Britney Spears like, with a big ole fake, "OOPS!"
Who cares about what Miley Cirus wanst for the new year!!!! She'll probably just take a few more dongs up her flabby habby babby
Miley will be pregnant by the end of the year. Watch and see....
I hope you go to Prison. I hope all your teeth fall out and get sores from drugs. YOU ARE NO ROLE MODEL FOR CHILDREN.
Wow, such hate for someone you don't know.
That's no way to go through life, friend. Seek help before the mindless hate destroys you.
Go pose for Playboy so you can fade away already. I mean, seriously..............
Who is Miley Cyrus??....never heard of her.Oh well....
"dedicating her life to helping others'? After she takes another hit from a bong? Or maybe after she takes another racy photo?PLEASE!!!!
Unlike what you preacher tells you, it is possible to help others while having fun with your life.
Meley that isza good picture of a beautiful young lady. U have a whole life ahead of u. SLow down and Live lLife as it shoul dbe lived
Hopefully her new year's resolution is to wear less clothes.
She should make a resolution to only use clean bongwater; the dirty stuff makes your skin breakout...
I hope Miley can get her life back on track. Good for her if she helps others but she must also help herself. Clean up Miley...you are better than you have been lately.
WHO THE BLOODY HELL CARES.
CNN stop trying to be TMZ. Just report the news and do some actual investigation, not just putting your idiot commentators on air to twist around what Reuters and AP have reported on.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM?
If she can turn down that megaphone horse voice while speaking that would be nice.
Also its going to be a hoot watching her go megasloppy far worse than Lohan.
Hey...ease up on Brit...her last two albums (Blackout and Circus) rocked!
THIS IS NOT NEWS.
No, it's not news. Which is why it is in the "Entertainment" section, not the news section.
I think she should get a better class of psychedelics.. aromatic terpenes are just weird..
Wowwwww. She's 18 now. Have fun, baby.
REALLY, CNN? A front page story about what MILEY CYRUS wants in 2011?
Actually, that is about what we have come to expect from your once-respectable group.
I just watched the video Miley posted.. I didn’t really seem to get the same vibe from it. Yes, she seems to want to have a better year in 2011, but I wouldn’t go so far as to write a whole article on CNN claiming that’s her “New Years’s resolution” and that she is “dedicating her life to helping others”. She never said either of those things, just that she wants to help her fans more. She said she has some exciting new trips planned, cool “tours”.. to me that sounds like she’s just going on more concert tours to see more fans.
I’m not expecting a wildly changed woman next year.
Nobody cares about her!!!
I see one huge problem here, Besides everybody is putting a double standard on Miley.And for those of you that rely on TV shows to set examples and be role models for your kids.GO take some Parenting classes and a dose of Humility.Maybe even spend some time with them.But don't put your issues on this young lady cuz' you suck as a parent. This girl is Tame compared to girls of her age. She does need to learn to be discrete though if she is going to continue being entertainment for kids now that she's of age.This is when she needs her folks the most hopefully they won't twist her into another Lindsey or Brittney
Miley – get some gum reduction sugery so you're not so hideous to look at.
gum? her smile looks like horse teeth!
Yes, the dumbing down of America continues. And speaking of dumb, where's today's Sarah or Bristol Palin article ?
Hope she cleans up her act for 2011-
But, if not – Billy Ray – the word intervention is coming to mind. I think someone may need her daddy.
Does the name Lohan mean anything to you? Hilton? Here's one – How about John Belushi?
She's really hot, fyi... Keep doing what you're doing gal.
Really don't care about her, but Billy Ray can't be too surprised, I remember what he did on break when he played the Ragtime Lounge in Huntington WV. She's sounding a little like Lindsay Lohan, look out Billy Ray.
Her resolution for 2011 is not to be a crack w h o r e.
Miley's 2011 resolution is to get her own bong.
Is Miley the new Lindsay Lohan? I'm pretty sure all Disney child stars are on the fast track to Betty Ford. Read more @imeanwhat http://bit.ly/e8f3PB
Whoa! Is she 18 yet? GIGGITY!
Her new years resolution is to travel and take trips? Wow... that's going to be a REAL toughie to keep. Hard life!! I wish I could help out
I can't recall when it was, but Miley Cyrus recently denied being a role model. The problem is that people like her, Lindsay Lohan and Demi Lovato don't seem to undertand that they are role models whether they want to be or not.
These are the young women that young girls ages eleven to fifteen are looking up to and want to emulate simply because they get press.
As a father of a four year old, this kind of thing scares me to death. If Miley, Lindsay and Demi are the best role models that young girls have now, just who and what is going follow them?
Because pop stars and actresses shouldn't be role models for your kids. You are personally responsible to your kids to be the kind of person you want them to be.
They shouldn't be, but of course they are. I had a great childhood with a stable family and yet I still thought Eddie Van Halen smoking cigarettes in white overhauls while playing guitar was the coolest thing I ever saw.
It's really easy to say "Well just be a good parent and everything will be allright" but it's not that easy....And suggesting that it is really a gross oversimplification of the issue.
You can be parent of the year and still have to give your kid a ride to his juvenile probation officer.
"What's Miley's New Year's resolution?"
To smoke more weed......and try to stay off the pole.
Her new years res, should be to smoke more pot.
Miley seriously needs to change. When she was caught on camera with that bong, it broke her dad's heart. And keep in mind that he specifically told us not to break his achy-breaky heart in song form, so that makes it much worse.
Oh now that damn song will be in my head all day.
yeah yeah yeah good intentions whatever
Dear Miley – TAKE IT OFF and GET WADDED UP
Miley, please, in this new year, support your local search and rescues... Get lost.
Another child star with no real talent trying to make it by taking off as much of her clothes as she can or getting into adult situations! Another spears or lohan and see where that got them.
They're both filthy stinkin' rich and get paid $100K just for showing up at a party for 45 minutes... sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
Who is Miley Cyrus?
Why must people be so hard on Miley Cyrus. Granted I honestly don't think that she's that talented, but give me a break. She is 18!!! Just because she has fame and fortune does not mean that she should not act like any other normal teenager. How many of you at 18 weren't doing something that others would have looked down upon. She wears teeny outfits and smokes a drug that is legal where she lives. How many of you were drinking, smoking pot, or doing worse at 18? I understand that she is a "role model" for young children and that due to her fame she is held to a higher standard than normal 18 year olds, but the fact of the matter is that if your child looks up to Miley Cyrus as their number 1 role model, then maybe you should look at yourself as a parent. Shouldn't your child's most influential role model be you? Just a thought.
Her PR department wrote the whole thing for damage control. In celebrity speak it translates to : "My bodyguard must confiscate all cameras before I do drugs."
Suggested New Year's resolution for Miley – stay out of rehab.
And stop your racist mocking of Asians with your slanty-eyed group pictures
New year's resolution? How about acting less like like a $lut.
And the remark about being a changed woman??? A "woman" acts responsibly while showing a higher level of maturity and doesn't gravitate towards bad publicity. A "woman" has her act together and is a contributing member of society. This 18 year old child is acting more like a toddler. But it's hard for me to say that since my 3 year old acts with far more humility, maturity and far better decision-making skills.
I take it all back. She isn't acting like a child. She's just acting like a stupid moron and that's all she'll ever be if she doesn't realize it and change her ways.
Really Dave? Where girls really that mean to you in high school that you have to resort to calling a teenager a "stupid moron"? Grow up.
hahah how naive dave.
wait until your 3 year old turns 18, then you can talk
Wow, the responses are really disappointing. Not just yours, but most of the others as well.
The last three presidents have all admitted to using drugs. An 18 year old celebrity gets photographed smoking something from a water pipe and that means we should toss her out with the garbage. Sounds like you people are just jealous.
Trying to compare what she has done with what Lohan, Spears and the rest have done just doesn't make any sense.
Gentlemen, what do you think your 15 year old daughter is doing right now with her 15 year old boy friend? Well, I'll tell you this, while you are at work they are probably not baking cookies and watching iCarly.
Grow up people.
Wow, I bet you were tons of fun at 18 Dave. Sad that you life s ucks that bad
Don't worry too much about this, Dave. She's 18 and experimenting with lifestyle, like a lot of 18 yr. olds do. She'll grow out of it. I would like for her to take some singing lessons, though.
I got a resolution for her....put some clothes on!
Um, I think you mean "take some clothes off." I'm just waiting for the Playboy spread...it's coming, you know.
Hey Miley. How about helping others by going away.
"to help people and make people happy.” Maybe you should give all your young fans some salvia, then they will be happy. I am just so mad at theses so called role models for kids. I hate this pedophile entertainer!!!This woman should seek help for herself and her colleagues (Disney TRASH), like Britney, Christina, Lindsey L. Then think about making others happy.
Pedophile entertainer?! Really? Lolita (your screen name is kinda creepy too, btw), you need a dictionary. Ms. Cyrus may have made some unfortunate fashion choices....may have even experimented with a legal herb, but she is far, far from a pedophile. What a disgusting comment to make about a young woman, just out of her teenage years!
@pandoramn: pretty sure she meant it as "entertainer FOR pedophiles"
"So called role models" I'm not sure, but I don't think she ever claimed she was trying to be a role model.
Guess what CNN – NOBODY CARES!
Please just stick to reporting news.
By clicking on the story you just voted for CNN to continue posting stories like this.
Its in the Entertainment section. Every newspaper/news source has an entertainment section. I would understand if this was the top story, but its not.
But what I don't get is that you say this isn't news; however you click on the story which helps makes the story bigger. Give me a break!!
this is all cnn is capable of covering in terms of "news". fluff and bollocks. the dumbing down of america continues.......
So, why did you comment if you didn't care? Because YOU went to the entertainment section and obviously read the article, you do care. You want news, then stay in the news section.
This is the kind of news you'll get under the Entertainment section. If you want other news try clicking on Politics, Justice, etc!!
The sad thing is there will soon come a time in which nobody will remember that people at one time cared about real news and took it seriously. We are quickly getting to a point in which any news which is not "entertaining" or ironic (i.e., poking fun at the news itself (e.g., The Daily Show) simply becomes irrelavent. While there was a lot wrong with the news of the past (slanted, biased, manipulative) the one thing it did do is getting people from all walks of life talking about important subjects and respecting the dialogue. As soon as people simply stop caring the dialgogue will cease and people will forget it was ever there. Once it is gone and people simply expect our news organizations to publish the New Years resolution of pop singer who can't carry a tune (if you know anything about music and "The Climb" doens't prove my point then you actually know nothing about music) then I think we have lost something very important both as a nation and a society.
WHO CARES ABOUT HER RESOLUTION???? SHE DOESNT BENEFIT ME AT ALL, SHES DEFINETELY NOT A ROLE MODEL....
Dear CNN, the thesis of your story is wrong. You are making the inaccurate assumption that Ms. Cyrus was not out making people happy and helping people in 2010. One charity watch organization a few months back recognized Cyrus as second–right behind Angelena Jolie–for the amount of her own time she donates to charity causes, helping people, that is. Also during the last year she shot the final season of her Disney Channel TV show, gave more than 20 concerts in the United States and Europe, competed shooting a movie with Demi Moore and is in the middle of shooting another–that's a lot of "making people happy if you ask me. The fact that you focus only on her stage costumes and a single incident of recreational drug use over all that good says a lot more about your CNN's warped sense of reality than it does about Ms. Cyrus' priorities.
wow, you are delusional... second to jolie in charity? hahahaha, so blind.
"a single incident of recreational drug"?
How about the single incident that made it to YouTube!
To the guys who replied to Chris..... Who cares if she smoked salvia and it ended up on Youtube? Sounds like people have some parenting to do instead of letting celebrities be role models. What a tragedy. She's an adult going to adult parties in affluent neighborhoods. There will always be drugs and booze at all adult parties. Sorry to let you guys in on this little known secret.
Hey Chris, recreational drugs? What a d..mn and cheap excuse for an unskilled girl that Disney has created as example of boys and girls. She's a young bimbo with zero voice. And now, following the steps of her buddies Paris Hilton and Lohan, she started using "recreational drugs". I don't care what you think about it, but for me, drogadict is the pot, cocaine, morfine or heroina user....All are drugs that destroying your brain.
Ms. Cyrus should quit to continue acting as a kid.....I wouldn't be surprised if the next news about her, its that she got pregnant.....I don't care if she has giving zillions to charity, but her poor and rejectable behavior is the worst example that someone can give to our young people.
Unfortunately I'm watching how drugs are destroying our society, starting with our kids. Just see Ms. Cyrus.
Who gives a rat's ass?
to the people who disagree with chris, stop raising your kids in front of the TV! Miley isn't their mom or their dad. and if you don't like her, don't watch her on TV or in movies and don't comment on her on articles about that you seem to love to read. maybe if you got a life you wouldn't have to make disparaging comments towards other people.
