Miley Cyrus franchise worth $1 billion

ASSOCIATE PRESS - Miley Cyrus is already way richer than her dad, Billy Ray, and she's only 15.

People magazine reports that the Miley Cyrus franchise will be worth a projected $1 billion by the end of the year. She tops the magazine's list of the richest teen celebrities.

Not that Miley is seeing much of the money. Her mom says most is invested and Miley can't touch it until she's 18.

The Jonas Brothers are also on the list, making $12 million a year. Fourteen-year-old Dakota Fanning makes $4 million a movie.

Twelve-year-old Abigail Breslin makes $2 million a film, but has to live on an allowance of $11 a week.

Thirteen-year-old Mark Indelicato makes nearly a half million dollars for a season of "Ugly Betty," but he has an allowance of $50 a week.

QUESTION: How much money do you get from your parents, if any, to use a week?

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
