Teen sensation Miley Cyrus has given away her Porsche Cayenne for a more eco-friendly hybrid, a black Prius. Miley made the intelligent switch just before the release of her album Breakout, which includes a song “Wake Up America” which talks about helping the environment.

Oh, the earth is calling out
I wanna learn what it’s all about
But everything I read’s global warming, going green
I don’t know what all this means
But it seems to be saying, Wake up America!

Well, the official reason has been given as the old car was too big for the little girl. The Porsche was given to her by her mom as a Hand Me Down on her 16th birthday, last December.

Now her dad, Billy Ray, presented her with a Prius over the weekend. Miley explains the gift in her regular video blog (see after the jump).

Meanwhile, Miley was involved in yet another photo scandal when a picture of her and some of her friends appeared on LiveJournal, showing Cyrus ‘stretching their eyelids into slits’ to appear like Asians. It sure offended quite a few of them and the director of the Asian American Justice Center seems to be very furious.

“It’s offensive and disappointing. She’s such a role model for young women.”
