Miley Cyrus and her BFF Mandy Jiroux used to make tons of funny videos while they were touring together on Miley's tour (remember The Miley and Mandy Show?) These days, Miley is focusing on her acting and music while Mandy is recording new songs and touring with her group BG5.
Even though the two don't see each other that much because they're always working, Mandy tells J-14 exclusively that they're still close friends. "We don't see each other as often as we used to because every day was, 'Let's sleepover! Let's do this!' We've both been super busy," she says. "I'm super busy with the girls, and I see them all the time, and she's doing her own thing, but we keep in touch. She actually invited us to her 18th birthday bash!"
In fact, Mandy has spoken to Miley since word of her parents' divorce broke. "I've just talked to her about other things, and she just seems fine," Mandy tells J-14. "She's a really strong girl. She has great siblings around her. They're dealing with it just fine."
Even if they can't see each other all the time these days, Mandy is still a supportive BFF and admits that she still looks up to her good friend. "Working with Miley was a dream come true for me because growing up as a dancer, the main thing is to go on a tour with a huge artist," Mandy says. "It was amazing. As a music artist now, I just look up to her because she's the most hardworking girl in the world, and because she's so hardworking and passionate, she is who she is. No matter how tough the day is, work comes first, and you should feel blessed every moment you're doing it."
