Ted Rall for April 28, 2008
Actress and singer Miley Cyrus, 15, has signed a major book deal to write her memoirs. [Faith] is kind of why I'm like here in Hollywood - to be like a light, a testimony to say God can take someone from Nashville and make me this. - in US today, 1-14-07. Earned $18,200,000 in 2007. Historians say much of Cyrus' life is an open book. Declassified Disney memos show they cast her in "Hannah Montana" because she "loves every moment of life." But entertainment Kremlinologists think the book will settle some long-standing controversies. We know Billy Ray Cyrus - her dad - gave her a stardust series acoustic electric pink guitar in '04, when she was 12. But why that model? Next: Willy Miley be Obama's veep? Her role in Hitler's decision to invade Russia continues to perplex. We'd like that settled. Miley: short for smiley!
