Wait and see in a few years. Having the Disney marketing machine behind you can help you move a lot of product in a short period of time. However, it will be interesting to see if she can survive on her own talent once she gets too old and the Mouse moves on to the next young teen sensation.
I can understand why Tom Yorke and Radiohead don't want to meet Miley Cyrus and Kanye West backstage at the Grammys. Not that I've been to the Grammys, but I've been in situations where people come up to you at an event trying to curry favor or play the "I'm an admirer" game. You get the feeling they aren't sincere. If someone was really interested in meeting you, why wait for a "photo op" moment to do it?
