Miley Cyrus Drinks A Beer, Outrage Follows

  • Miley Cyrus, age almost-18, had a beer in Spain, where it's okay to be almost-18 and drink beer. But now this dude James E. Copple from the International Institute for Alcohol Awareness is getting all up in her business, scoldin'.

Copple says he's concerned that young people who regard Miley as a role model will see her partying down with her Corona and engage in "risky behavior associated with underage alcohol consumption." Interestingly, Copple says nothing about adults of legal drinking age who also look up to the Queen of the Teen Scene; he must not care about their well-being very much. [TMZ]

He also has to get tested for drugs and alcohol whenever the probation department says he must. What can he do now? Well, there's sudoku, and needlepoint, and ikebana. [TMZ]
