(Apologizing for appearing in a controversial photo of her posing with slanted eyes) I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of God`s ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be.
This may sound weird coming from a teenager, but I like when my dad gets a little frustrated with me or a little upset with me. There aren`t a lot of dads like that in this business. Most parents with kids in the business are like "Go free, do what you want". My parents never wanted me to go all Hollywood. My mom`s dad died when she was 18, and if anything ever happened to one of my parents, I`d want them to go knowing that I made them proud.
(About Hannah Montana) I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It`s what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people. I`m really excited about our new season. We are making great new episodes that I can`t wait for our fans to see and I`m looking forward to the "Hannah Montana" movie that will be out in the spring.
(About dating at 15) I am too much to handle right now, with all my traveling, and cameras following me everywhere. It`s not an ideal situation to be dating anyone. I have guys who are good friends, but I kind of like to be the girl that nobody can get. It`s a lot more attractive to be the girl where guys say, "Hey, she`s cool. I`d like to be with her".
(On the false stories printed about her) There have been all kinds of crazy, false stories. I`ve had pregnancy rumors, I`ve been getting married, I`ve been moving away from my parents... My mom was like, "When are you going to tell me about this?".
(about her highly controversial "Vanity Fair" photo shoot in 2008) I feel so embarrassed. I hope my fans understand that along the way, I am going to make mistakes, and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen, and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone.
It`s cool to know people support you!
(about her upcoming memoir) I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me. I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams.
I`m more of a casual type of chick, so I usually just wear my favorite jeans when I go out.
I probably have an earlier curfew than anyone. My mom wants to keep me really safe and my dad`s not overly protective, but he`s a dad no matter what.
(About making people happy) There are so many people that have come up to me during our shows and tell me: "The hour that we are watching your show is the hour that my kids are happiest and are smiling, they are laughing," and that is what I long to do.
Some people don`t have a family to fall back on, like I have, and that`s when something greater than even that comes in and that`s faith and that`s what I have for me. That`s what keeps me strong.
I need more friends. It`s kind of like my quest right now just to have more true friends.
I do love meeting fans, but sometimes, when I look horrible and see people, I`m like, "Oh no, they`re going to be scarred for life. They`re never going to look at me the same way!" But it`s still fun meeting new people.
I`ve got high standards when it comes to boys. As my dad says, all girls should! I`m from the South--Tennessee, to be exact--and down there, we`re all about southern hospitality. I know that if I like a guy, he better be nice, and above all, my dad has to approve of him!
It`s a long ride to the top, but it`s only a short ride down, so it makes me very nervous. I`m like, "Oh my gosh, am I doing enough? Do people still like my music?" I get really stressed out over that.
I`m not letting any stupid decisions get in my way. I want to be a role model, letting girls know that they can follow their dreams.
In general, I like guys who are musicians or into music like I am. I need a guy who`s calmer than i am because I`m hyper and my mom tells me I need one who has a T-Mobile cell plan, like mine, so my phone bill won`t be outrageous.
My dad says I could sing before I could talk, if that`s possible. I was always humming and things like that.
As soon as I read the script (For Hannah Montana), I knew it kinda related to me. I wanted to disguise myself as not some celebrity`s daughter, just be me and find people that like me for me.
If you believe in yourself anything is possible.
I`ve always loved singing, and I`ve always loved acting and dancing. Getting this opportunity with Disney (the role of Hannah Montana), I get to do it all. They let you do everything you love.
It`s been an insane year. I watched my dad doing this my whole life, and then it was my turn to step up to the plate and follow in his footsteps. It`s been my dream to sing, but I also thought it would be cool to act and get to be someone else. Having this amazing role of Hannah Montana, where I get to sing and act, has been really fun.
(On her dad) I think my dad is a lot cooler than other dads. He still acts like he`s still 17.
(When asked which character is more fun to play, Miley Stewart or Hannah Montana) I have more fun playing Hannah, because I like to sing and dress up.
My dad and I talk all the time about the important stuff in my life. He and my mom know how much I appreciate them and our relationship is good because we spend time together. I am happy to be a part of this day to help other kids feel the same way.
Sometimes I`ll be punky, the next day I`ll be preppy. Every day after work, my mom and I go shopping. My dad is about to kill me. I say, "We need it, daddy!".
I`ll be out with my friends and be recognized, and little girls will ask me for my autograph. It is so much fun living out your dream. It (Her show "Hannah Montana") totally reflects me 100%.
(About her character) I think Hannah gets nervous just like any other person would. She`s like a dork, personally. She`s just really, really fun.
As soon as I step on that stage, nothing matters. I don't think of it as work. It's just so much fun.
I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It's what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people. I'm really excited about our new season.

I am not very good at keeping secrets at all! If you want your secret kept do not tell me!
I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me. I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams.
I come from this really small town near Nashville, Tennessee, where everything was la-di-da and normal.
I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be a role model. My mom always tells me that imperfections equal beauty. All of us are imperfect.
I get more anxious than nervous before a concert.
I have four shelves covered with journals that I've written. Dad and I are writing songs together. I've probably written 100 songs.
I love to sleep. I'd sleep all day if I could.
I need more friends. It's kind of like my quest right now just to have more true friends.
I probably have an earlier curfew than anyone. My mom wants to keep me really safe and my dad's not overly protective, but he's a dad no matter what.
I think Hannah gets nervous just like any other person would. She's like a dork, personally. She's just really, really fun.
I think my dad is a lot cooler than other dads. He still acts like he's still 17.
I told my mom, 'I'm not buying another magazine until I can get past this thought of looking like the girl on the cover'. She said, "Miley, you are the girl on the cover,' and I was, like, 'I know, but I don't feel like that girl every day.' You can't always feel perfect.
I'm pretty outspoken.
I've got high standards when it comes to boys. As my dad says, all girls should! I'm from the South - Tennessee, to be exact - and down there, we're all about southern hospitality. I know that if I like a guy, he better be nice, and above all, my dad has to approve of him!
If I could get any animal it would be a dolphin. I want one so bad. Me and my mom went swimming with dolphins and I was like, 'How do we get one of those?' and she was like, 'You can't get a dolphin. What are you gonna do, like, put it in your pool?'
If you believe in yourself anything is possible.
Life is all about having a good time.
Music is what I breath, what I love to do. It keeps me alive.
My dad says I could sing before I could talk, if that's possible. I was always humming and things like that.
My favourite sport is cheerleading!
My mom is always telling me it takes a long time to get to the top, but a short time to get to the bottom.
Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!
The best part of my carreer is getting to meet so many different people, because I learn so much from everyone.
The only people that you really have, that I learned, are your family, because they love you no matter what.
There are so many people that have come up to me during our shows and tell me: "The hour that we are watching your show is the hour that my kids are happiest and are smiling, they are laughing," and that is what I long to do.
There's nothing more fun than being out on stage and getting the vibe from the crowd. There's nothing like being on a set where you are there to make other people happy and to make them laugh. That's the best job in the world.
When preparing for a concert, I do lots of training. I work with a choreographer to create great moves and then I have to keep my voice strong with lessons.
With yourself, I think you have to decide the kind of person that you really want to be, and for me, it's just a sweet girl.
You can't live a positive life with a negative mind and if you have a positive outcome you have a positive income and just to have more positivity and just to kind of laugh it off.
You don't have to go out and party every night. You can act because it's your dream.
