fans will have to wait until April 10 to see Hannah Montana: The Movie
on the big screen, but Miley Cyrus
is everywhere. This weekend she'll be performing her hit single "Climb" at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
"For CMAs, it will be cool," Cyrus assured her fans. "We're doing a couple different performances. I want them all to look different, for them all to have their own fun kind of ways that different people can relate to. It is a song that's so universal and everyone can relate to. It doesn't matter what kind of music you like or what kind of person you are or what you're used to listening to, or whether you know me or not, it doesn't matter. Either way you can be inspired by it. Each way I want to make it relatable to that group but most of all keep the inspirational part of it for sure."
Part of the movie actually revolves around Cyrus's on-screen persona returning to her country roots. In real life, the CMAs are about as country as she'll get for now. "I wish I had more time to. [Shooting the movie] was the longest I was in Tennessee since I left, and it was awesome. I really hope that I can move back there at some point because that's what I want. I just want a nice house there, where can I really escape. There were times for three or four weeks just straight I was just in Nashville, and it really made me miss home. So I hope I can go back at some point, for sure."
At least it's not all work keeping her busy. Cyrus is sure to use her fame to give back to the less fortunate along the way. "I have a foundation called the Pappy Cyrus Foundation, which is my granddad. It's everything we did from City of Hope. We are working with all kinds of different people. We actually did a couple of trips back and forth to the White House. That's one of the reasons I was at the inauguration was we want all of America to get involved, because it's something that is so important. We deal with homeless shelters. When I was on tour in 2007, my best friend died of cystic fibrosis, and it was right after my granddad had died. I just had a really hard time with cancers and other kinds of stuff. Then I did a tour with the Jonas Brothers
, and we ended up raising two and a half million dollars for City of Hope and that all went to cures, not just to kids personally, but to cures and studies, and it was really amazing watching the process. We got to go to the hospitals and watch them do all of these crazy things. Literally, we were sitting there looking at live cells being placed and watching this. It was amazing. It was just one of the coolest experiences, so that's who I work with."
