Looks like teen queen Miley Cyrus wasn't joking when she said recently how it was time for her to exit the music business and focus on acting.

She recently revealed on The View that she's become a bit disheartened because "the music industry isn't as positive as I would like it to be."

Much like when she deleted her Twitter and did not return to the social media site despite harsh criticism, Cyrus is sticking to her guns here.

"I've got a record coming out in June, then I'm done," she said. "I just want to work in movies. That's what I like and what I want to be doing."

MILEY CYRUS LIVE: Pay $300 for a ticket while you can!

Her new film The Last Song, opening this week, is Miles' first acting project outside of Hannah Montana, and co-stars her new boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.

Miley and Liam made a splash on the red carpet last week, and while he may be a tad biased, he says he wasn't surprised that Cyrus held her own acting.

"You know how she feels when she's feeling down and you know how she feels when she is feeling up," he said. "She's always a very expressive person."

"That really works on the screen, and she's really good."

Is she? We'll find out when we review The Last Song.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, The Last Song co-stars and SO much more, made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Hollywood premiere of their movie.

Dressed in Calvin Klein, Liam joked that life got a little tougher after Cyrus confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that she fell for him after he opened a door for her.

"After all that, there's so much pressure for me to be opening doors for everyone now," the Australian stud muffin told E! Online. "It's just too much pressure."

Liam Hemsworth is still adjusting to the attention from female fans, who have been chasing after him when he attends premieres and screenings, and so forth.

"That was my first experience of the craziness," he said. "It's flattering. Funny, too."

LAST SONG HOTNESS: Miley and Liam debut as a couple.

Next stop on The Last Song PR tour is Europe with premieres next month in London, Rome and Munich. Let's just hope Liam and Miley are still together by then.

"I lost him so, he's not being the best boyfriend right now," Cyrus, who also performed on American Idol this week, joked after getting separated from her man.

"The whole deal was we were going to be walking together," the 17-year-old added. "But then I lost him first thing because he started saying hello to everyone."

Yeesh. Better step it up, Liam.

American Idol viewers received a double live treat last night.

The results show, which saw voters send Paige Miles home, also saw a triple teen threat of Miley Cyrus, Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato bringing the house down.

For all our criticisms of Miley, you have to give her credit, the girl is a good live vocalist, a true stage presence with a husky, powerful voice beyond her years.

Although the writhing and spontaneous convulsions during the chorus of "When I Look at You," her track from The Last Song? No idea what's going on there.

Perhaps Liam Hemsworth knows a little something about it:

What did you think of Miley Cyrus on Idol? Did she bring her A-game? Are you psyched for her first huge non-Hannah Montana role, as she focuses on acting?

In addition to Miley, new couple and dueling music stars Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato performed "Make a Wave." They certainly did in real life by coupling up.

Miley Cyrus appeared on The View this week and hyped her upcoming movie, The Last Song.

For those that enjoy seeing this star on the big screen, they can take comfort: there will be plenty more opportunities to do so.

"I have a record coming out in June and that's going to be the last thing I do in music for a while," Miley told the panel. "I just want to do films 'cause I like being someone else. My music is kind of like my diary. I'll always do that... I just feel like the music industry isn't as positive as I'd like it to be."

At the Oscars

As for Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus opened up about her new man, as well:

"I love him. He is a great person. He's someone I'm holding onto because we very much connect and were both very ambitious and have some of the same goals. My mom loves him and thinks he's wonderful."

Watch snippets from the interview below and then chime in: Are you sad to see Miley leave the music business?

It's not drastic, but it is new:

Miley Cyrus has a fresh hair color.

When the singer popped out of her car yesterday for an interview with Good Morning America, she was spotted with light red locks. You can study them on TV tonight when she mentors the 11 remaining finalists on American Idol.

She might hate the Internet, her own hit Disney show and the entire country music genre, but Miley Cyrus still has plenty of passion and expertise to go around.

The teen queen will be the celebrity mentor on American Idol this week, Fox confirms. Tuesday night will reportedly feature a Billboard No. 1 hits-themed show.

Of the 11 contestants left, three are teens: last week's sensation Siobhan Magnus, 19, Aaron Kelly, 16, and Katie Stevens, 17. Tim Urban is just 20 years old.

Of course, the three teens all took on The Rolling Stones - more than triple their age - and pleased the judges with their homages to the rock gods last week.

Will Miley be able to steer them in the right direction this week? Or will the girlfriend of Liam Hemsworth act like she's better than them? We'll soon find out ...

Miley Promoting a Movie

Miley Cyrus is promoting The Last Song this week. No doubt there will be a plug - or maybe even a track - or two from that tear-jerker when she comes to American Idol.

On Wednesday’s results show, Miley will be back to perform her hit song, “When I Look At You,” while new couple Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato will duet on “Make A Wave.”

In other words, clear the space on your DVR now, because this watershed moment in teen music history may be one you hold onto and savor for many years to come.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth might not be engaged, as rumors have suggested, but they recently took a big step in their relationship:

Miley met Liam's parents. How did it go?

"They loved her," Liam told Michael Yo on E!'s Daily 10, referring to a recent trip the couple took to the actor's hometown in Australia. He added:

"It was really cool to show Miley where I'm from and how I grew up, and it's a completely different world to where she's from. We don't have shopping centers or traffic lights or anything like that, where I live at least."

Fancy Pair

Cyrus didn't seem to mind the changes.

"It was awesome, I really like Australia," she said. "You know what? The media's really cool there, too. Even though there's paparazzi, they kind of stay their distance; it was kind of like Nashville by the sea actually, the town he's from."

To read what Miley has to say about celebrity gossip, gay marriage and other topics, check out her interview in Parade.

In the new issue of Parade, Miley Cyrus does not hold back.

Yesterday, she talked about how hard the Internet sucks. Today, she talked about ditching Hannah Montana why she feels country music is contrived, and so on.

Her interview isn't all negative, though. Cyrus had praise for Liam Hemsworth, Lady Gaga and God too. Below are excerpts from Parade's sit-down with Miles ...

On Liam Helmsworth: “[Liam has] become my best friend. I love him. He really respects me for who I am because coming from Australia, he really didn’t know me as the celebrity I am here. I got to tell him about myself on my own terms.”

On Lady Gaga: "I really love her. She’s really smart. I used to be like, yeah, I guess she’s talented but how much is she really singing. But I’ve become a convert. She has to be smart to come up with all the stuff she comes up with. She gets it."

On her fan base: “I am screwed up in the mind a little bit because I’m not like other 16- or 17-year-old girls. I have no perspective of who exactly my fans are, to tell you the truth. Teenage girls in general are hard for me. I’m not a girl’s girl."

On country music: “It feels contrived on so many levels. Unless you’re wearing a cowboy hat and boots and singing and whining about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you it’s not going to sell. It makes me nervous, the politics of it all."

On the paparazzi: "You have to ask, ‘Why would any other 50-year-old man who was stalking a 17-year-old girl go to jail, but not these guys?’ I mean, they couldn't sit outside of a high school but they can sit outside my recording studio. It's creepy.”

On her faith: "To me, faith is about having a clean slate and a clean start. The one thing I’m really strong about regarding my religious beliefs is that you should know a little bit about everything before you define your own beliefs."

On Twitter: “I believe God is the only one who can judge us. That’s the reason I deleted my Twitter, because I said I believed in gay marriage because everyone should have the right to love each other, and I got hate mail about being a bad person.”

Hard to argue her reasoning on that point if nothing else. Click to enlarge more Miley Cyrus pictures from Parade and tell us what you think of her interview ..

Despite coming of age in an era where websites and wired fans fawn over her every move and contribute to her fame, Miley Cyrus has no love for the online world.

THG has no love for her, so it looks like we're even!

At the very least, you have to give Miley props for practicing what she preaches, having axed her Twitter to focus on being truer to herself and BF Liam Hemsworth.

But bashing the Internets in general? Watch it, girl. It's one thing to call out your critics, it's another to bite the cyber hand that feeds you, no matter your intent.

“I’m telling kids, don’t go on the internet,” Miley told Movieline. “It’s dangerous, it’s not fun, it wastes your life. You should be outside playing sports or something.”

Miley Eats It

EAT IT: That's basically Miley Cyrus' message to the World Wide Web.

“I just think it’s kind of lame. I feel like I hang out with my friends and they’re so busy taking pictures of what they’re doing and putting them on Facebook."

"They’re not really enjoying what they’re doing. You’re going to look back and have a million pictures, but you’re not actually going to be in any of them."

"Because you’re not having fun, you’re too busy clicking away. So I think just enjoy the moment you’re in, and stop telling people about it. So just enjoy it.”

Okay, we have to agree with Miley on that philosophy. It's very mature. We're impressed that a huge star can reflect and maintain that kind of perspective.

However, she's sort of insulting her fans at the same time, and there's certainly a place for everything in moderation. Click here to follow THG on Twitter!

In a recent interview with KIIS FM, Miley Cyrus confirmed her relationship with Liam Hemsworth and sent a message to her critics, possibly signaling out THG: Get a life!

"I may not be the best singer in the world, but I don't lip synch, I'm honest. I'm honest in acting, too," Miley said. "I'm doing what I like, people that are dogging me probably aren't, which is why they're down on me., I want to tell them ‘go get a hobby!'"

Ouch. We are, indeed, doing what we like, Miles. But we don't begrudge you a self-defense.

As for Hemsworth, Cyrus is confident that he's dating her for all the right reasons.

"I feel like I've been with people before, both in the public eye and out of the public eye, that may need something from me," she said. "He's not like that. He was already successful, he was already cast in the movie, he didn't need me for that. He doesn't need me to make him famous."

Even we have to admit: Miley has been acting far more mature recently, deleting her Twitter account and keeping her relationship with Liam mostly private. Might she finally be growing up?
