Naughty Miley Cyrus Gets In Trouble

Updated on October 13, 2009

Well it was only a matter of time before Miley got into serious trouble, but I must admit, it has come in a rather surprising form. Miley and her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus earned the ire of Consumer Reports when they failed to wear their seat belts in the Hannah Montana movie, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert Tour.

Consumer Reports had this to say about the shocking incident:

"Why should we care? Because, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in about 55 percent of passenger vehicle fatalities in 2006 (the latest data available), the occupants were not wearing seat belts.

It seems to us that Miley, her father, and Disney had a perfect opportunity to help influence teens and counteract-rather than encourage-this trend. Then again, as Hannah herself sings, "Everybody makes mistakes."

Of course, no matter how tongue in cheek one is being about the issue, it is certain that failure to wear seat belts, or wearing them improperly causes hundreds, if not thousands of parents and children to lose their lives every year.

Ever on the ball, Billy Ray Cyrus apologized for failing to buckle up, saying:

"We got caught up in the moment of filming, and we made a mistake and forgot to buckle our seat belts. Seat belt safety is extremely important."

Let's face it however, the reason they weren't buckled up was probably because the director didn't want to have seatbelt lines ruining his shot. I doubt that Miley or Billy Ray had any say in whether or not they buckled up on the set. Still, it was nice of Billy Ray to take this one on the chin, and I hope he got a bonus from the studios for doing so.

An interesting response to the media storm has been the number of commenters on various websites who believe that it is unnecessary to wear a seat belt if you are sitting in the back of a vehicle. Case in point, this comment, taken from a website running this story: "Miley and her dad are sitting in the BACK. She is 15 and im sorry but i wanna ask all of you how many of you buckle up when sitting in the BACK."

This is a bit of a public service announcement to people of all ages who think that sitting in the back of a vehicle without a seatbelt on is okay. It's not. Being thrown against the seats in front of you at 60mph will kill you, or perhaps if you're 'lucky' maim and cripple you for life.

If you're having trouble remembering the rules, just think of this handy McDonald's slogan which was sung by Ronald McDonald way back in the good ol' 1980's:

No matter if you're in the front seat, or if you're in the back, CLICK goes the seatbelt before you hit the track!

      NO! If you have seen her movie and read her book "smiley miley" came from her childhood friend, her "prince charming." I hope when i turn 14 i will go to Hollywood with my bf and i will be just like Miley Cyrus...even though she is 2 1/2 yrs. older than me. All i want to do is...

      1. meet Miley Cyrus

      (i have already met, Corbin Blue, Aly&AJ, Beonca Ryans, & Drake Bell)!!

      2. be an acter on disney channel like Miley Cyrus

      3. have my own movie in bout 3 yrs. of my career like her

      4. be a singer like Miley

      5. and inspire children like Destiny does now.

      SO LEAVE MILYEY/DESTINY ALONE

      and i will see you!, on disney channel

      peace out suckers!

      (that's what she said in her book)

      and yes she has done some bad things in her life as living both a pop star and a teenager, but let her grow up and live the life she is trying to live. i meen she will be an adult in about 1 1/2 yrs.,........... so,...LEAVE MILEY ALONE!

      It was a legal name change. The name 'Miley' is a shortened version of 'Smiley', which is apparently what Billy Ray used to call her when she was small, because she smiled all the time. The name shortened to Miley over time and stuck.

      Wow... Destiny Hope.. What were they thinking. Ha. Was it a legal change? Of just of choice. I don't think my parents would let me do something like that. Ha. What does Miley mean? I mean if he called her that, why not just name her that?

      Yes, Billy Ray Cyrus really is Miley Cyrus' Dad. She was born Destiny Hope Cyrus, but recently changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus. ('Miley' comes from the childhood nickname her dad gave her, and the 'Ray' is in honor of her father.)

      So Billy Ray Cyrus is really Miley's dad? I figured it was just for the show.
