Miley Peaces Out
Miley Cyrus offers a gesture of friendship to the paparazzi.
Miley Cyrus might seem like a happy 18-year-old pop star on the outside but sources close to the young celeb say that she is going through a very difficult time.

According to People, Miley has been trying to cope with the intense stress put on her following dad Billy Ray Cyruscontroversial comments to GQ magazine.

“[Miley] seemed stressed, though she tries to hide it behind a constant smile,” a source tells People. “Miley is upset. She’s very hurt and angry.”

It’s easy to see why Miley is upset: Her father Billy Ray recently told GQ that he is “scared” for his daughter’s well-being and that he feels that Hannah Montana “ruined” his family. Billy Ray has since said that his comments were “explosive, and unintentionally so” and that he is trying to focus on mending his relationship with his family.

Billy Ray’s comments aren’t the only things that are stressing out the young star. Miley’s parents are currently going through a divorce (the pair filed for separation in late 2010) and the “Can’t Be Tamed” singer has been spending most of her time with her mother, Tish Cyrus, in Los Angeles.

Miley is also currently in the middle of trying to plot her next career move. Will the young star move more towards films or will she record another album? Miley’s relationship with Disney (the company who put out The Last Song) has been put under a lot of strain thanks to Billy Ray’s comments. Sources connected to Disney recently told The Hollywood Reporter that Miley’s future with the company is “TBD” following Billy Ray’s GQ interview. Yikes!

Hopefully Miley will find a way to make it through these stressful times and get back to what she does best.
