Miley's super sweet 16!

15 Oct 2008

Ahlan! goes inside showbiz's most OTT birthday bash (and it's not even her birthday yet!)

Last week, spoiled tween MILEY CYRUSclosed down Disneyland to host a lavish soiree to celebrate her sixteenth birthday with 5,000 of her ‘closest’ pals.

Nevermind her actual birthday is not until November 23, but then, if two birthdays is good enough for the Queen…

The tunes
Dad Billy Ray, sang a rendition of Achy Breaky Heart before he was joined on stage by Miley’s arm candy, underwear model-turned-singer JUSTIN GASTON, as they serenaded her (is it just us or is there something Joe Simpson-esque creepy about that?) But the big treat for the attention-hungry teen came when she took to the stage herself. Shaking her thang in a ruffled white skirt emblazoned with ‘Sweet 16’ on the back, Miley showed off a new belly button piercing, twittering, “This is the most amazing sweet 16 a girl could have.”

The guests
TYRA BANKS, CINDY CRAWFORD, STEVE CARELLand JENNIFER LOVE HEWITTwere among the celebs who stumped up a whopping Dhs920 for the privilege of attending the bash. Even Miley’s Disney frenemy, Demi Lovato, put in an appearance.

The goodies
Lucky guests were treated to Hannah Montana makeovers, free theme park rides and designated ‘Special Party Areas’ blasting Miley’s tunes.

There was also a colossal fireworks display, which was blasted by local residents – who clearly didn’t realise they were in the presence of greatness – for its noise and magnitude.

The gifts
Not content with her Dhs276,000 Mercedes pre-birthday treat, mum and dad tried to surprise Miley with a Maltipoo pup named Sophie. Not easily satisfied (“Miley is really hard to surprise,” said brow-beaten dad Billy) the little minx went on a spending spree with her credit card, buying so much her mum had to confiscate it. We smell a teenage tantrum coming on…
