OTRC: Miley Cyrus to spend 18th birthday in Nashville

Miley Cyrus tells OnTheRedCarpet.com she hopes to spend her upcoming 18th birthday in her native Nashville.

Miley Cyrus says she hopes to spend her 18th birthday, which takes place on Tuesday, in her native Nashville, known as the capital of country music.

The pop singer made her comments to George Pennacchio of KABC Television, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company, at the 2010 American Music Awards, which take place at 8 p.m. EST at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and airs on ABC. Cyrus is set to perform her new song "Forgiveness and Live" during the ceremony.

"Hopefully I get to spend Thanksgiving at home," said Cyrus, clad in a bright, strapless, Marchesa dress, when asked about her birthday plans. "I'm hoping I get to go to Nashville, so that'd be cool. It's the best place ever."

Cyrus, a singer and actress, did not specify if she plans to spend the holiday with her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, who are in the midst of a divorce.

Cyrus rose to fame with the Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana," which is set to end after the current fourth season.

She has said she has outgrown the series and also caused some controversy earlier this year when she showcased a more mature image in performances and music videos, which marked a sharp contrast to her "good-girl" persona seen on the show. The actress and singer acknowledges she has changed since she began filming "Hannah Montana".

Cyrus, who began her acting career when she was eight, is focusing her attention on the big screen. She stars in the 2011 film "LOL: Laughing Out Loud" with Demi Moore and plays a girl who deals with high school romances and friendships as well as overbearing parents.
