She’s still living down her bong-smoking boo-boo, but Miley Cyrus seemed to be in great spirits over the Christmas weekend.
The “Hannah Montana” babe teamed up with her little sister Noah to film a video of well-wishes to her fans.
Ms. Cyrus proclaimed, “I want to make this the year that I go out and do what I’m here to do, and that’s to help people and make people happy.”
On Christmas day, Miley’s older sister Brandi tweeted, “Miley and Noah are currently singing ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ on Noah’s new karaoke machine. It’s pretty hilarious.”
Following all the criticism that came with her bong-smoking video, 18-year-old Miley has reportedly promised her parents Billy Ray and Tish that she’ll be more level-headed from now on.
An inside source told press, “Even though Miley is of legal age and able to make her own decisions in most matters, she still remains very close to her parents.”
“She’s headstrong and likes to make her own decisions, but she truly loves her Mom and Dad. She knew right away that this video of her partying with ‘pals’ and puffing on a bong would send them over the edge.”
“After listening to their terrible fears that she’s heading down the wrong path and losing control, Miley made this solemn vow to her parents: She will straighten up and start acting like the role model to young fans that she should be!”
Once known as a bad girl of sorts, Kelly Osbourne is one celeb whose thrilled to have a new friend in Miley Cyrus.

She also wrote, “Miley and I have become really close. I’m sick of all the haters judging her…This really makes me mad. Miley is one of the most hard working respectful women I have ever worked with, I am learning a lot from her!”
