Teen Star Fights Underage Drinking

Among all of the confusing messages that youth get through mass media, it’s nice to see a teen icon speaking out against underage drinking.

Miley Cyrus is a 16-year-old singer and star of the Disney show Hannah Montana (and daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus). The young entertainer, who performed on last night's American Idol results show, decries Hollywood producers' lack of attention to underage drinking.

Giving one obvious example, the 16-year-old Disney star tells Glamour magazine, "At one of my very first awards shows I ever did, there was a bottle of vodka in my gift bag." She goes on recalling, "No one cared that they were giving this to a 12-year-old."

We love it when celebrities use their powers for good!
