Miley Cyrus -- Bilingual Underage Drinking ... Sorta

11/5/2010 12:33 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

With her parents in the middle of a divorce, underage Disney pop princess Miley Cyrus, 17, threw back a Corona cerveza at a club in Madrid, Spain last night ... where the legal drinking age is technically 18 -- but there's a catch.

TMZ contacted several Spanish authorities who each confirmed the law ... and then made it clear that underage drinking is simply no big deal in their country.

One police officer told us ... people as young as 16 are cool to consume "certain" beverages in Madrid -- but the cop refused to explain what those beverages are. 

In that case: Salud!

"Bullsh*t! You don't consider being a drug addict or alcoholic a problem so it's just not publicized but they are drug addicts and alcoholics and they are considered disabled and supported by the government and given cheap drugs. You have more pregnancies than we by far but you also have a correspondingly larger number of abortions so fewer births. As for the skin photos, the internet is flooded with photos of your young women doing all sorts of sexual things and looking drugged and disgusting. Many look to be under 18. I guess the US just needs to not worry about this stuff and then it won't be a problem, just like in Europe. But all those teen girls in the photos seem to be having sex with much older men. Oh well."

You have absolutely no friggin clue what you are talking about. The US has BY FAR the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world, e.g., 8 times higher than the Netherlands (at the same abortion rate).
The reason being that you are a bunch of self-delusional hypocrites who think preaching abstinence is a great strategy against teen pregnancy. We'd rather give teens condoms and the pill instead of lying to ourselves.

The everybody does it defense is not a defense. No, not everyone drank while under age. If you have to use that to justify your excuse for drinking underage, that is pretty sad.

In the 60's the age for drinking was 18 so what's the big deal, I think we should roll back the age limit to 18 or have clubs that serve 3.2% beer like they did when I was stationed in Colorado. Just be much tougher and enforce the laws .

She'll just end up another victim chewed up and spit out by the machine that is the pop world. It makes me sad to see. Her parents should be flogged.

If they were going to roll back the drinking age at all, it should be rolled back to 19. I can understand why they wouldn't want eighteen year old seniors in high school drinking.

Ok Ok.. for this one little moment.. i have to say.. chill out.. we all know miley is attempting to growup and is needing to be looked at and judged as an adult.. although she isnt there just yet. i have to say.. she's trying hard to look 21.. lol funny.. but chill out everyone.. no one is pure perfect.. and if these twihards think they are.. i say go stick it.. ive drank underage just like many many others.. as if a corona will get her drunk! ( only 1 in the pic).. but its sorta creepy seeing all those grown up guys hanging around lil underage drinking 17 yr old.. makes for a teen porn movie.

Countdown till miley uncensored begins...

looks like 2011 will really be her year... mark these words

OMG Grow up    

Please anyone on here making comments like "Where are her parents" or comparing her to Britney take a few deep breaths and remember when you were a teenager.. don't tell me 99% of us did not have a drink or too many while we were still underage... not the biggest controversy ever.. Shes a teenager let her live her life... she's not out snorting drugs... going crazy its just a corona for goodness sake

While I usually stick up for Miley, I am extremely disappointed in this picture. She is obviously posing for the picture and has no problem showing that she is drinking a Corona. Her show is still on Disney Channel and is shown to millions of impressionable kids who want to be just like her. Now these same kids may see this picture of her drinking a beer at the age of 17. Well, if Miley can do it, why can't I?

I really don't care what she does in private, but to be photographed with a beer in her hand anywhere in the world is completely irresponsible and a slap in the face of us parents who have helped promote her TV show, music and product lines to our children. No more. I am done.

This is so stupid big deal she turns 18 at the end of the month and the age in most of the world is 18 so what she had one beer doesnt mean she's gonna become an alcoholic
