Miley Cyrus Is Flying High

Miley Cyrus knows how to avoid the traditional hassles of holiday air travel.

The 16-year-old Hannah Montana star and her parents, Billy Ray Cyrus, 47, and Leticia “Tish” Cyrus, headed to Burbank Airport on Saturday to boost out of town aboard a private jet—which is really the only way for Miley Cyrus to travel these days (unless she’s zipping around in her Porsche).

From the looks of the many packages and suitcases the Cyrus clan was lugging around, they’re heading out for their holiday destination. Miley (born Destiny Hope Cyrus) recently told reporters that she hoped to cap off a busy year by chilling in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

“I just want to go home to Nashville, spend a couple of weeks there, get my feet back on the ground for a little while and go ride my horses. That’s my wish and hopefully, that’s what I get to do,” Cyrus noted.

As for the teenage tycoon’s New Year’s Eve plans, the singer will be spending the day at a lucky fan’s house, where she’ll perform in his or her bedroom. The intimate show will be broadcast on MTV as FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise… New Year’s Eve 2009, and will also feature a set by Metro Station, which features Miley’s 19-year-old half-brother, Trace Cyrus.

Even with all her professional obligations, Miley still finds creative ways to spend time with the family. No wonder she’s America’s sweetheart.
