Miley Cyrus Meets the Karate Kid

By: Betsy Waldman / March 11, 2009

Miley Cyrus, who recently complained to some radio hosts about how celebs should take the time to gratify fans with their personal attention, put her money where her mouth was yesterday.

After leaving a private Pilates session in Los Angeles, she halted to pose with a very young—and very cute—fan.

The little man was decked out in a karate class uniform—or gi, as it is called by dojo-dwellers.

Judging from the look on the kid’s face, the photo was probably taken more for an excited parent’s benefit than for the pint-size heir to the Karate Kid throne. Or maybe he was just trying to psyche the Hannah Montana star out with his stone-faced appearance of indifference.

Either way, it’s nice to see that Cyrus isn’t afraid to kick it with her fans. As long as her fans don’t kick back.
