Teen pop star Miley Cyrus has been slammed by an international alcohol awareness group after pictures of her boozing surfaced. Miley, who is 17, was spotted at a party in Spain drinking beer. Spanish law sets the legal age of drinking at 18 but teens over the age of 16 are allowed to consume certain liquors.
Thus, the star did not break the law. Nevertheless, the Hannah Montana actress was criticized by James E. Copple (head of the alcohol awareness group) who told TMZ.com that youngsters see Cyrus as a role model and she should refrain from such irresponsible behavior.
