Made her first return to the stage for a concert in Orlando, Fla, after her provocative pictures for Vanity Fair magazine were leaked to the net on April 27, Miley Cyrus expressed her gratitude to the support her fans have given her post the scandal. Performed several songs at the Disney Channel Games concert Saturday night, May 3, she was quoted as saying "I can't be more appreciative of that."
"I hope you had an awesome time," so she said. "I saw a sign back there that said, 'Miley, I'm praying for you.' I could not be more appreciative. Thank you guys for all your support. Without you, none of this would be possible. I love every one of you and I could not be more appreciative. God bless you."
The Saturday concert saw Miley performed such songs, as "See You Again", "Fly on the Wall" and "Breakout."
Miley has been keeping herself away from media attention and avoiding to address her semi-topless pics for the June 2008 issue of Vanity Fair since the pics were leaked to the net and caused huge media attention and pros and cons as well. She even skipped a scheduled media party in Orlando on Friday, May 2 to film the charity competition "Disney Channel Games".
Notwithstanding with her controversial pictures, Miley was included as one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People". Scored the No. 59 spot on the prestigious 5th annual list, she was said by the publication to have been "riding a huge tidal wave at the pinnacle of her career".
