Although scores of fans and parents were outraged by the recent video of Miley Cyrus hitting a bong allegedly packed with the psychoactive drug Salvia, Cyrus herself "doesn't view it as a big deal," according to sources connected with the singer/actress.
In fact, Cyrus is just acting like a typical teenager who doesn't listen to her parents, says a source close to the pop star who spoke to Us Weekly. However, Cyrus' case is inherently different: "Miley is a rich teenager. She does what she wants."
Doing what she wants during her own time is one thing, but doing what she wants on the set of her films is another. Us reports that while on the set of "LOL," which co-stars Demi Moore, Cyrus was difficult to control. One example: a stylist would adjust Cyrus' shirt properly, but once the director yelled "action," Cyrus would "pop open two buttons and pull her top off her shoulder," according to a set source who spoke to the magazine. "Every single take. Tish (Cyrus' mom) asked the producers to talk to her because Miley wouldn't listen to her."
Cyrus is currently filming another movie, "So Undercover," alongside Kelly Osbourne in and around New Orleans. On Dec. 12, Cyrus was spotted at a local club (where she drank Red Bull) and danced until the wee hours of the morning.
