I know I keep writing about this story but I can’t help myself.  It is like an accident that everyone slows down for.  Because it is the unimagineable for any parent – I find myself reading, feeling absolutely sick to my stomach and then writing about the loss of Jett Travolta. 

In any case – like all of their fans out there – celebrities are pouring in with their support for John Travolta and Kelly Preston during this awful time.

Oprah is just one of the many celebrities who have expressed their condolences.  Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks have all sent messages of support to the family, and now Billy Ray Cyrus, whose teenage daughter Miley starred alongside Travolta in animated movie Bolt, has sent his condolences to the grief-stricken family.

He tells E! Online,

“Our thoughts and prayers are with John and his family. They’re great human beings and strong people. And, again, our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.”


What Did Miley Get for Her 16th Birthday??

Miley Cyrus may have already closed Disneyland down for an early celebration of her Sweet 16 birthday, but that was just the beginning of the celebration for the Disney star. Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, may have got his daughter the best possible gift for a young singing sensation — and it’s not a new car.


Billy Ray told Access Hollywood that Miley wanted a recording studio.

“She just wanted a place to record there at the house. She’s been writing a lot of songs … a lot of really great material.”

And Miley won’t be the only singer in the house spending some time in the new studio — at least according to dad.

Miley could not be any happier about her gift.

Billy Ray may have his sights set on logging some hours behind the mic, but not if Miley has anything to say about it.

“He’s not touching it, he’s not touching it! It’s mine, It’s in my room. No one’s touching it but me. They’ll ruin it.”

Isn’t 16 great.  You don’t have to be thankful and it’s okay.

Miley Cyrus Celebrates 16th Birthday at Music Awards Show!!

Happy Birthday Miley!!

Happy Birthday Miley!!

Miley Cyrus celebrated her 16th birthday on Sunday, November 23rd.  The only “problem” was that she had a conflict – it was the same day as the American Music Awards where she was going to be performing her song, “Fly on the Wall”.  What is a girl to do.

Thanks to her parents and some friends her big day did not go forgotten.  They had a mini party at the American Music Awards (AMAs).  Not her only celebration since Miley had an early celebration on October 5 at California’s Disneyland.

Besides her parents, some of her friends including, Jordin Sparks, Julianne Hough, Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale all surrounded and cheered for the birthday girl as she blew out the candles on her birthday cake.

What a way to celebrate your birthday.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILEY!!

Miley Cyrus Struggling With Stardom

miley-cyrus-2007-21Miley Cyrus is turning 16. As she is getting older she is learning that with success comes a price. Miley is having a hard time trusting people and is learning to keep her guard up.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Miley stated,

“I think you have to be really careful about the people you trust. There [are] very few, two or three people that I would actually go to with anything and know that it would never leave the room. Two of those are my parents.”

Of course the other person that Miley trusts is her new boyfriend, Justin Gaston, 20.

After leaving Nashville making friends in Hollywood can be challenging. She stated that many of her pals are also in the business because it is “easier,” but that too can become a challenge.

“I think that’s what’s really great, because you can relate to each other that way, but it still makes it hard because you still never know when someone’s career is up and down.”

I’m not sure what that statement means – but it must be hard being so young trying to survive in a “grownup” world.
