[artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist] may have shut down Disneyland for her Sweet 16 last November, but this year, for her 17th birthday party, the singer kept it decidedly more low-key.
Cyrus, who turns 17 on Monday (November 23), celebrated the milestone on November 18 in New York with her friends, family and rumored beau Liam Hemsworth at the Canal Room. The party had an '80s theme, complete with a performance by the cast of the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages." "The whole thing was a surprise," a source told People magazine about the bash.
Even the cake fit in with the party's theme. It was designed by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's "Cake Boss." "They didn't want a girly-girl cake," Valastro said. The vanilla cake was inspired by Madonna's penchant for wearing lace in the '80s and was accented in Cyrus' favorite color, purple. "It totally fit the theme," Valastro added. "It was really awesome."
When Cyrus turned 15, she also had an '80s-themed bash, in Nashville. "She loves the '80s," her mother, Tish, told People. "The fashion, the big hair — she thinks it's so funky."
No word on what gifts Cyrus received on her big day, but last year she received a Maltipoo puppy, a cross between a Maltese and a poodle. "He's precious. ... We're just excited," she told MTV News at her big party at Disneyland, where pals like Demi Lovato, Tyra Banks, David Archuleta and ex-boyfriend Justin Gaston helped the singer ring in a new year.
