Seriously, people. We have child work laws in the US, but no one seems too concerned with the overworking of teen pop stars (see Britney Spears).
Entertainment Lawyer has a great entry about this topic. I do feel sorry for Miley and I hope that she can carve out some sort of normal childhood in this merchandising madness of a tv show, movies, music and tours. The mouse company and those around her just seem to see dollar signs.
She is also a child. Who is working. Way too much.
Let's see what happens in the next five years.
