The winner is a dad from Connecticut, who secured the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for his 11-year-old daughter. The premiere is sure to be a star-studded event, as John Travolta and Malcolm McDowell also voice characters in the movie. Along with the meet-and-greet, several other items were auctioned off on eBay, raising a total of $58,100 by the time bidding closed on Tuesday. Don’t worry, though: Miley’s not pocketing the dough. It’s going to the Pappy Cyrus Family Foundation, which supports underprivileged kids.
In other Miley news, the singer, whose Breakout LP debuts at #1 on next week’s Billboard albums chart, has college on the brain. “I was online the other day, looking at colleges,” Cyrus told E! Online. “I want to go in London. I’d like to do fashion and then photography.”
The 15-year-old already knows a bit about photography after April’s Vanity Fair flap, and she seems to be learning from her very public mistakes. Cyrus recently shot down rumors that she’d do a girl-on-girl kiss with Katy Perry at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards, where she’s set to host.
“No thanks,” Cyrus told E!. “She sang on my record, so I think she’s kind of getting back at me because she was doing harmonies and backgrounds.”
Someone who Miley suggests stay in the background a little longer is her 13-year-old brother, Braison Chance Cyrus, who aspires to be in show business like his sister. “He’s really talented, really good at the drums,” Cyrus said. “But he’s, like, 13. So, you know, he’s not ready for it yet. He’s like, ‘I don’t want to start as young as you did in the business.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I agree.’ I think he should, like, finish high school and stuff.”
Hmm, do you think a little more schoolin’ would help Miley too? Tell us!
