(Newser) – As their 3D concert film's weekend box office domination shows, the craze for Hannah Montana and alter ego Miley Cyrus isn't even close to slowing down. In a Q&A with the AP, Cyrus talks about the pressures of performing on tour: "I really have to be good. Especially when you hear what people are doing for tickets. It has to be perfect.”

Cyrus enjoyed performing as herself rather than as Hannah. “You get to go out in front of 20,000 people every night and show who you really are,” says the 15-year-old. And her family, including dad Billy Ray, is on tour to keep her grounded: “It's been really nice having my mom with me and my dad, working with him.”
