Thousands of screaming fans turned up to see Miley Cyrus, probably the most famous teenager in the world, last night.

She was in London for the UK premiere of the big screen version of her Disney TV show Hannah Montana.

Even Miley herself was surprised by the reaction from her fans.

"It feels amazing," she said. "I've never been to a London premiere before. The fans are amazing, I don't think I've ever seen it quite like this."

Cyrus was keen to stress that she's thankful for her success.

"It's crazy, you know, 'cause I am just a kid, but it's a great experience, I'm having a great time and God has definitely blessed me abundantly."

'Bit of everything'

Although the movie is aimed at her younger fans, Miley reckons those who love her music will also get the film.

"You know what's great for me is I have kind of the best," she explained. "I work with Hannah Montana and this is where I check with my younger fans.

"And then my music rate is from 15 to 25, which is awesome 'cause I have a little bit of everything.

"So I think even if you enjoy my music you'll get to know me a little bit better if you see this movie."

'A great gift'

You might not be aware of how much of an international star Miley Cyrus is.

Last year she earned over $25 million (around £17 million) and she's been named in TIME magazine's 100 most influential people alongside President Barack Obama.

"I don't feel like that's fair," she said, "I feel like that's a huge honour, you know what I mean? I don't feel like I deserve it, which I can't believe that, it's such an amazing feeling.

Her father, Achy Breaky Heart singer Billy Ray Cyrus, plays her dad in the movie, and says he couldn't be prouder of his daughter.

"She's been in this business a long time," he explained. "She's matured beyond her years mentally, and as an artist, a singer and a songwriter.

"She's just got a great gift, a great connection, you know, with the fans around the world."
