Miley Cyrus: 'I Want to Be Like Beyonce'
Cyrus, best known for playing her Disney alter-ego Hannah Montana on the small screen and concert stage, has now launched a pop career in her own right.
And the ambitious 17 year old hopes her success will match that of the Halo hitmaker - and help her finally elude the tabloids that are more interested in her personal life.
She tells America's Seventeen magazine, "I want to be like Beyonce. She is the ultimate woman. You look at her and you don't think, I wonder what her personal life is like. You look at her and you go, That girl on the stage is a superstar. You don't care about anything else; you only care about her music. So I would hope that would be me in the future."
