Singer/actress Miley Cyrus has received some timely advice about sustaining her career - from her dad Billy Ray.
The Hannah Montana star had been working from a young age before she landed the starring role in the Disney franchise - a part that she feels "very fortunate" to have received.
And her musician father is adamant that having fun is the key to the teenager enjoying a long career in the showbiz industry.
He says, "Make good choices. Do the best you can do - mostly have fun. I always tell her that as long as she's having fun, then it's working.
"She loves what she's doing. She has a real passion for making music as an artist. She loves being an actress, and we all feel very fortunate being in the Disney family and getting to do both of our loves."
