Smiley Miley Cyrus vamps up for Perth finale

THE world's youngest billionaire celebrity packed out Burswood Dome last night with a finale fitting of a teen queen.
Miley Cyrus, 18, thrilled her Perth fans with the concert marking the last leg of her Gypsy Heart Tour.
Dressed in short, tight shorts, knee-high boots, a sequined bra and a sparkling jacket, Cyrus opened with a laser-lit version of her hit Liberty Walk.
The vamped-up superstar attracted a diverse crowd - from pre-teens to Gold Coast Suns star Gary Ablett and his girlfriend Lauren Phillips, who also danced to support act Michael Paynter from Melbourne.
Cyrus's set drew on covers from '90s grunge rockers Nirvana, '80s Goth-pop of The Cure to '70s supergroup Fleetwood Mac.
But she told her young fans her music was exclusively for them.
She broke into her smash-hit song Party In the USA after throwing off her jacket, before telling her Perth fans the concert would be special because it was the tour's finale."Thankyou guys so much, this is our last night on our Gypsy Heart Tour. We want this night to be extra loud," she said.
Girls as young as six were out of their seats and rocking to a mash-up of I Love Rock 'n' Roll, Cherry Bomb and Bad Reputation.
Dancers performed ballet during the song Obsessed, while Cyrus proved her live singing ability.
The crowd went wild when she sang chart-topper Can't Be Tamed, before another costume change into a glittering bra under a flowing blue gown.
Then came the song everyone had been waiting for, The Climb.
Cyrus, born Destiny Hope, has an estimated fortune of about $1 billion.
Her performing career took off in 2006 with the Disney Hannah Montana TV series, in which she played the alter ego of a schoolgirl and undercover pop star.
In Perth on Friday, Cyrus was seen having lunch with two friends in Subiaco. But there was no sign of her beau, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, who has joined her on the other stops of her Aussie tour, along with her mother, Tish.
