Miley Cyrus: Designated Driver, Role Model

Miley Cyrus sometimes is dubbed an inappropriate role model for teens, but the 17-year-old pop star may be more responsible than her critics would have you believe.

While the “Can’t Be Tamed” songbird has been spotted out and about several nights in a row this past week, HollywoodLife reports that Miley isn’t doing any partying–in fact the young star acts as a designated driver for her pals.

On a recent outing to Mr. Chow, the 17-year-old superstar reportedly acted as the designated driver for her pals.

“Miley wasn’t drinking,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife, “Which was good because she was driving as well.”

According to the eyewitness, Miley and her friends shared food and gossiped about Halloween plans. Hm, what do you think Miley plans on being for Halloween?

Miley was recently slammed for being “irresponsible” when she was photographed talking on her cell phone while driving. However, the former Disney star shot down claims that she was breaking the law and insists that she was parked and talking to the police about some rowdy paparazzi who were making her nervous.

Maybe Miley is a lot more responsible than people give her credit for.
