Miley Cyrus is the only recent teen superstar who has had to manage career-endangering controversy in the midst of major success on several fronts.

The 15-year-old star apologized on Sunday for posing for provocative pictures for Vanity Fair, and has taken a drubbing in the media. Everything had been going so well: She has three albums on the Billboard 200, a box office hit with a recent concert film, a sold-out 2007 tour, as well as a hugely popular television show.

The first measure of Cyrus’ album sales since the story broke won’t be available until May 7, but Nielsen BuzzMetrics, which measures blog traffic, shows a 150 per cent spike in discussion about Cyrus’ album Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert from April 27-29. That album was perched at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 last week. She also has other albums on the chart: Hannah Montana 2 (No. 34) and Hannah Montana 2: Non-Stop Dance Party (No. 141).

To date, the singer and star of the series Hannah Montana has sold nearly 7 million records in the United States between her two personas, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
