Miley Cyrus’s rocky repuation hasn’t harmed her career! More than 6 million viewers tuned in to watch the season finale of Hannah Montana!

Bongs, boys, booze, and skimpy outfits — Miley Cyrus has gotten a lot of bad press with her new “cannot be tamed” antics, but it turns out her new wild child persona has only helped her career! Disney was proud to announce that 6.2 million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to their favorite teen pop star Hannah Montana in the show’s fourth season season finale Jan. 16.

“Sunday’s series finale of “Hannah Montana” delivered 6.2 million Total Viewers, outperforming its record-setting fourth season average by 9%. The finale was easily cable’s No. 1 telecast in the hour among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 and posted Disney Channel’s highest ratings ever in the hour in Total Viewers and Kids 6-11,” Disney said in a press release Dec. 18.

Miley’s fans are relentless, and have stuck by the teen pop sensation’s side through the thick and thin. Parents seem to be unfazed by Miley’s transformation from the “country girl next door” to Hollywood party animal. Now that she has officially put Hannah Montana to rest, it will be interesting to see what roles she will pursue next. Do YOU like Miley’s new image?
