Miley Cyrus: 'It Made Me Happy'

Miley Cyrus: 'It Made Me Happy'

While fans debate whether Miley Cyrus‘ tears during her acceptance speech at the 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 28) was real or fake, the 16-year-old starlet dished the real story to MTV.

Miley shared, “I was a little embarrassed. But then again, I shouldn’t be! It meant something to me, because it’s from the kids, and the kids are more important than anything else in the world. So it made me happy.”

She continued, “Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to win it,” she remembered of her thoughts at the time. “It just made my day that I did. It means a lot to me. [And] it’s voted on by the kids, which I like. It’s just a cool award. I don’t know of any other award that is like that. It’s a very unique award.”

Miley took home the award for Favorite Female Singer.

    Seems like Miley is doing everything right lately. She has a great head on her shoulders and I think that “the cry” was truely bc she was overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of habing the kids vote her to the #1 spot.

    Anyway, I’m really happy with the direction Miley is heading on! I’m now a fan.

  • Kris

    oh my god.
    she’s such a freaking drama queen.
    crying because of KCA???
    seriously.
    like she said it’s not the oscars nor is it a high praising award to get either.

    she needs to get over herself.

  • dundies

    of course u only care about kids.
    anyone over the age 18 is old enough to know you suck

  • dundies

    crying because of KCA???

    LOL were so gonna get hated on

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer listen to mayday parade

    She was caught off guard, and so she wasnt prepared so we couldnt hold back the tears. she was excited. why do people need to always rag on her… you cant fake that stuff, good for her.

  • swe3t23

    KRIS…. you have no emotion you must not be human. Unhealthy for a person not to shed emotion.

    It was sweet and genuine at the KCA. She is just being appreciative of her fans. Nothing wrong with her crying.

    Try to be in Miley’s shoes for a day. With the media watching her every mood. Let’s see if you can handle it. YOU CAN’T.

    so all you haters who hate Miley, need to check yourself because hating on someone you don’t know or judging them, shows what kind of character you are.

    @dundies:

    Funny, cause my 3 cousins and I- all over 17- are going to see the move weekend it’s out.

    Learn the facts.

  • hun98

    Yeah, seriously, I know alot of people in their early twenties and late teens who buy her albums and watch the show. Yes, millions if kids do too, but she has plenty of fans older than her.

    Plus I see no reason why people are being such haters about this whole thing. Geesh, what do they want her to do? Not care about her fans or her awards like that annoying Twilight cast? blech. I’m so glad we have some one who is so thankful for everything they receive. well deserved miley!

  • ivanka

    those tears were super fake.. its kca not oscars. daah of course she was going to win. the kids know her more than rihanna and those other

    @dundies:

    You are a complete and total moron, why don’t you stay away from
    here if you hate Miley so much go post some where else,like tmz they
    seem like your kind of people!! YOU KNOW A**HOLES!!!

    LOVE FOR MILEY

  • katie

    it seemed really fake. last year didnt she win like 5 kcas?!?! i mean come on! she knew she was gunna win. shes won waayy bigger awards than that and she never blinks an eye. i dunno, theres just something not very genuine about her

  • Rebecca

    get over it guys i love miley<3333
    her tears were real okay?

  • jo

    @katie:

    Maybe her mindset is different this year. Maybe shes grown up and matures and learned to appreciate more.
    I dont see how anyone could think those tears are fake.

    Dundies, you really need a wake up call. My friends(including myself) are 21 and up and we adore the girl! U need to get your facts straight sweetie. not all Hannah fans or four year olds. I don’t think Four year olds have the knowdledge to type on the computer yet. (they berely know the alphabet) use common sense before you speak.

  • kat

    seriously though.
    who cries at the KCA’s???
    it’s supposed to be a fun-filled night!
    she acted like she won a frickin grammy!
    honestly, i’m so over her!
    she knew she was going to win something since
    she bribed people on youtube to vote for her!

  • Jacques Strappe

    Personally I think it’s more understandable to cry over an award that actually shows fan appreciation. The Oscars are just Hollywood people patting other Hollywood people on the back. So people are crying because their friends like them. Big whoop. But when the awards come directly from the fans the emotion seems more sincere.

  • kat

    FYI: all the people who say the “HATERS” don’t “know” miley….
    well all the people who defend her by saying oh…she’s so sweet…and blah blah…you guys don’t know her either. so stop being hypocrites!

  • Rochel

    MILEY TEARS ARE NOT FAKE !!!!!!!!
    IF YOU JUST LOST 4 NOMINATIONS AND
    THOUGHT THAT YOU WERE NOT GOING
    TO WIN THE 5TH ONE
    WOULDNT YOU CRY CAUSE YOU WERE
    SO HAPPY THAT YOU ONE WON ?????
    I KNOW I WOULD.
    I WATCHED THE AWARDS WITH MY MOM AND SHE SAID
    THAT MILEY WAS PROBABLY THINKING THAT HER FANS
    DIDNT LIKE HER ANYMORE CAUSE SHE LOST THE OTHER
    4 AWARDS.
    SO WHEN SHE WON SHE WAS OVERJOYED AND SHOCKED THAT
    SHE WON.
    IT JUST SHOWS THAT MILEY IS HUMAN JUST LIKE THE REST OF US
    MY MOM EVEN CRIED WHEN MILEY DID.
    MY MOM SAID ITS OK TO CRY ITS A NORMAL EMOTION.
    IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU HAVE A HEART.
    MILEY HAS A HEART. SHE LOVES HER FANS.
    PEOPLE WHO SAYS SHE IS FAKE AND HER TEARS ARE FAKE MEANS YOU DONT HAVE A HEART.

    apparently you hardly know how to type either. …its barely not berely, cupcake

    i agree with kat. but apparently were not allowed to have a DISCUSSION on a discussion board

  • scarlette

    Well, I don’t think it was necessarily fake…I mean, she was caught off guard. It wasn’t expected…I remember when I won at my school’s talent show I was SO surprised and it was overwhelming…I didn’t cry, but it was such a great moment. And really, it wasn’t a big deal AT ALL, but it was really special to me that I won, considering that I really really didn’t think I was going to win. I can relate to Miley…and I’m not even her biggest fan whatsoever.

    I actually think that it was sweet of her to be so grateful for the award…

  • Victoria

    love her!

  • jess

    @Rochel:

    wow how are you exactly “my mom., my mon said, my mom did, my mom……”!

    the girl mentioned her mom like 10 times

  • Jacques Strappe

    You’re not discussing much, dundies, you’re just trolling. Pointing out spelling errors is a sure enough sign, particularly when you yourself don’t use apostrophes.

  • jakcon

    i’m sorry, but i think she was honestly crying because she thought she was going to lose. which is lame. because that means she was expecting to win. so not only is she a drama queen but she also has this sense of entitlement.

    plus she said that she thinks that her role in the HM movie will be oscar worthy. HAH. what a joke. she thinks she really will get that, too!? good god.

  • coryyyyyyy

    hey i wanna see allll the people that arre ragging on miley to get of their butts and go do what she does! really! try doing all of the things she does. god im sick of people saying miley this hannah montanna that! UGH YOU GUYS ARE LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!! FOR REAL GET A LIFE AND LEAVE HER ALONE! you dont know her so you cant bash on her. grow up.

  • mileyfan

    weel many ppl jealous of miley here

  • Bella

    I don’t think her tears were fake. If you do, whatever. Miley seemed truly appreciative of her award. I think it was cute and sweet.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBigL0VER MILEY’S FAAAAAAAAAN

    ok shut up

    at least miley cried for a K C A whitch means an AWARD what do you guys cry for ? a tv show ? lol

  • Shirley

    she was happy and sensitive. what so drama queen bout that?

  • JAMZ

    Honestly, this girl can’t sing!!! Honestly anyone can shout out Rock N Roll. She’s too mature for her age, her voice is too deep, Disney just needs to cut her off already——she’s old!!!!! Literally!

  • jordan

    i also just wanna point out that me and miley are the same age, 16! and i am a big fan of miley’s so dont say all her fans are 10 year olds because thats not true. i know a lot of teenagers who like her, i guess it might seem like that. i love miley’s music but i dont like hannah montana’s music, i just like some songs, but i do love the show and cant wait to see the movie!

  • proud to be an aussie

    aaw she’s been through so much.. it was probally all just built up emotion.
    everyone gets like that.. even miley.. shes human

    shes a hard worker and certaintly not fake.. shes who she is:
    a young girl, with a lot of fame, $, supporters and haters..

    she handles everything so well.

  • ktg46

    I think the young lady was crying crocodile tears. I am sure she was excited and thrilled to win, I just think she faked a cry to make it look good. It looked fake and if her real tears are like that the young girl is in trouble cause no one will believe when she really is hurting she could have just said something like Im speechless thank you so much. I just don’t believe they were real tears. Dont get me wrong I like her and will go see her new movie and listen to her cd I just think she went a little over board on this award. After all it was KCA not the Academy or Golden Globe Awards.

  • Rashley24

    definitely its not fake, it was just tears of joy….

    come on guys.. Show some respect,

  • Lucy

    That is so cute!!! LUV U MILEY!!! x

  • ash

    i agree with 38, its not that i dont like her either but those tears seem kinda fake.. i mean seriously, real emotions dont look that fake, she did look surprised but those are definitely not real tears.

  • http://www.justjaredjr.buzznet.com jb fanaticc
