Miley Cyrus Was Just Having Fun
Although the news of Miley Cyrus smoking Salvia at a party she held near her home in Los Angeles caused controversy, some reports actually saying that the herb will be banned in California also, due the incident, the teen star thinks it was not such a big deal.
It seems that Miley Cyrus wasn’t really affected by the news and reports saying she was smoking a hallucinogenic plant at a party for her birthday. In fact, the news was first reported by TMZ, who obtained a video of the star, although at first it wasn’t really known if Miley was smoking marijuana or something else. Then, other reports came to confirm that the substance was Salvia, which is legal in the state of California. However, despite the scandal created in the media with this video, Miley and her many reps did not issue any statements to clear the teen star’s image. But, maybe the reason why Miley is not hurrying to make any statements on this matter is given by the fact that the star thinks it is not a big deal.
According to some sources who talked to celebrity site TMZ, Miley claims she is just young and having fun. “Miley doesn’t care. She’s filming her movie and getting on with her life,” a friend of the star said. However, it seems that she tried to obtain the video and its copies in the attempt to stop the whole situation from being public, but now that the story was presented in the media, the star has nothing else to do than to go on with her life and focus on her projects. But, a statement from the teen singer and actress is still expected. The only reaction from Miley’s side came from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who apologized on behalf of his daughter on his Twitter page, and claimed he knew nothing about the incident.
In the video Miley Cyrus is shown smoking a bong and it is believed that the material was filmed by a friend of the star at her 18th birthday. However, the video shows Miley smoking the legal hallucinogen salvia, as reports said. Well, as you can imagine the star’s fans were very upset with the material being published, no matter what Miley says. But, who is to blame for the leak? Although it’s not clear how the video ended up in the media in the first place, according to Monstersandcritics.com, the friend that filmed Miley is blamed for recording the star smoking in the first place. Anna Oliver actually had to close her Twitter account because of the many messages from angry fans, who accuse her of filming the material, regardless of the way it was obtained by the media. It has been reported that the tape was stolen from the friend’s camera.
However, some reports actually claim that Miley wanted the video to be leaked, since she allowed the friend to record it. According to Melissa Gilbert, who talked to AOL News, being quoted by the New York Daily News, Miley wanted to get caught smoking and the “Little House on the Prairie” star actually said she believes that Miley was smoking marijuana and not salvia, as it has been said.
Anyway, although the comments still continue and other reports on this incident will probably be out in the following days, Miley has to go on with her life and she actually is doing so. The teen star was recently out partying with her co-star in “So Undercover,” Kelly Osbourne. According to People, the two hit New Orleans club Republic. “They were just dancing and hanging out. Miley was drinking Red Bulls,” a source said.11
