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.
