Miley meets her match

SO you think Miley Cyrus has it all? (Ok, I do too, but still...hear me out). A conversation on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM morning show might convince you otherwise. Currently the tween queen is without an allowance. Why? She's grounded! I know, I'm laughing too. It's one thing to get grounded (what 14 year old hasn't?), but it's another to have your crime and punishment splattered on the internet and radio.
Apparently Cyrus tried to put on Juicy suit after one of her recent concerts. Upon leaving her dressing room mom Tish noted that it showed too much of her stomach and ordered her to change. Miley, much like myself, was stubborn and decided not to change. Bad move. As a result the star missed a meet and great, lost her cell phone, and ended up grounded. But my question is this: How do you ground a celebrity?
Gee Miley you can't go out with your friends Friday night. Oh wait! You couldn't go out with your friends anyways because you had to do a concert at a sold out venue. And Miley I'm taking away your allowance. So you'll only get to wear the designer clothes you already own and use the things you already have. And, if that weren't enough, you can't watch your own show on TV! Ha. Take that.
OK, so I'm sure there are real consequences. And I'm sure Miley regrets getting grounded (or maybe not). What I like most about this story is that there are actually consequences for her actions. Kudos to her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, for setting groundrules and not letting her newfound stardom get the best of her. Maybe if Britney and Lindsay's parents had played similar roles they wouldn't be where they are today.

If you want to hear Miley talk about her crime and punishment it's all online: Miley's in trouble!

AGREED-- their direction and tough love will keep her grounded and she will be a success because of it..Also RUMOR alert--- Billy Ray Cyrus has been chosen as the next reality least that's what I heard- Billy will have a reality show following him and his family (-so Miley too) that will air on CMT..gosh this family is taking over or at least making muchhhhooo dollars..
