Miley Cyrus: Single, yes, but sober?

Like mother and father, like daughter? With her parents' divorce percolating in the background, Miley Cyrus is choosing the single route, having broken up again with Liam Hemsworth for a second time after making out with him in September.

Unlike her parents -- whose split has stirred up a rumor (denied all around) of a fling between mama Tish Cyrus and rocker Bret Michaels -- Miley has no drama with Liam, People reports. Heck, how many people even knew they'd gotten back together after the August breakup? Crazy kids.

The news might distract from today's other Miley report: the TMZ one out of Madrid, where she's pictured with her hands on a beer, surrounded by guys, a few weeks shy of her 18th birthday.

The singer and actress is in Madrid, incidentally, to perform on the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards; that's the gig where in 2009 host Katy Perry and her kooky costumes made a splash in Berlin.

This year's MTV EMAs will be held Sunday night.
