Miley Cyrus remembers Disney days fondly

October 30, 2017 GMT

Miley Cyrus will always “look back” on her Disney days with pride.

The ‘Malibu’ hitmaker played Hannah Montana until 2006 and whilst she enjoyed “being in the Disney universe”, she admits it was “a lot to put” on a kid of her age.

She said: “I liked being in the Disney universe ’cause I didn’t know anything else. I knew I was getting to live what I wanted to do. I think now that I’m older now, I realise that’s a lot to put on a kid. It’s a lot to put on a kid to have them have to get their makeup done and then also balance school and then also have me dress up in a wig. It’s a little Toddlers and Tiaras.

“I definitely look back on it as a good time. I think what was hard for me was balancing everything. I think it got harder when I started touring as both - I toured as Hannah Montana and as myself. I think that’s probably what’s a little bit wrong with me now! I mark that up to doing some extreme damage in my psyche as an adult person.”


And the 24-year-old singer thinks Hannah Montana resonated with fans so much because it “felt real”.

Speaking on CBS Sunday Morning, she added: “I think why people loved Hannah Montana was because Hannah Montana did feel real. And that’s ’cause I was under there. And people forgot that sometimes. I loved being that character.

“And honestly, music is everything and all people wanna have is great music and for that audience, for what that was, that was great music for kids to listen to. There’s a song called ‘Life’s What You Make it, so Let’s Make it Rock.’ Never forget that - wise words. That’s a good thing to tell kids.”
