Bye-Bye, Hannah

Friday, January 8th, 2010

The trouble with shows starring kids is that they don’t stay kids forever. “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus has grown up before our eyes, and that means the show must be drawing to a close. Disney officials revealed to the NY Post that the upcoming season of “Hannah Montana” would be its last.

The fourth season will begin shooting later this month and go on until sometime in the summer. New episodes will begin airing in the spring, continuing over a year. By then, Miley will have turned 18—and hopefully, Disney will have found another 12-year-old to launch a new hit series.

Miley Voted Worst Influence

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009


Miley Cyrus has been Disney’s most bankable superstar since the debut of “Hannah Montana,” but today she received a dubious “honor.” The teen phenom was voted worst celebrity influence of 2009 by AOL’s tween website (Just So You Know). Coming in behind Miley were pop princess Britney Spears and rude rapper Kanye West.

Yeah, Miley’s been ragged on for dressing too sexy and dating an older male model, but she hasn’t been caught drinking at Hollywood hotspots or sneaking out of motels in the early morning. So why the diss? editor Stephanie Cohen, theorized to Reuters, “I think Miley is in an interesting space where she is trying to graduate from being ‘Hannah Montana’ and a Disney channel celebrity and coming into her own and having a career beyond Disney. I think her fans still want her to be the sweet Hannah Montana and she is trying to age up…Parents are definitely resisting it.”

Those fans and parents are just going to have to face the fact that Miley’s growing up. She’ll be 17 next month—they can’t expect her to be a little girl forever!

Miley Tours Despite Throat Pain

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009


Miley Cyrus has just started her Wonder World tour, but is already having problems.

The tween queen has been hit was a case of strep throat that forced her to take a 15 minute break from her show in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night. So far, Miley has not cancelled any shows and is scheduled to play in Omaha tonight. The very busy “Hannah Montana” star spent all summer filming the movie “The Last Song,” has a new EP out and has done a teen-trendy clothing line for Walmart. Now she’s on tour, and still has to film the final season of “Hannah Montana.”

The hard-working 16-year-old told People, “I’m a little tired I will admit but I’m just taking it easy when I can and take care of myself.” Isn’t it time Miley took a break?

Miley Gets Her “Wings”

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009


As teen sensation Miley Cyrus outgrows her role as “Hannah Montana,” Disney keeps looking for ways to get more mileage out of their biggest moneymaker.

Variety reports the Mouse House has purchased screen rights to Aprilynne Pike’s bestselling young adult novel “Wings,” and will do a screen adaption starring Miley Cyrus. The Disney starlet will play a sheltered teen who discovers she’s a fairy when a pair of wings begin sprouting from her back.

Given the current mania for vampires, ghouls and other supernatural creatures, this film could play well with the teen movie audience—and help launch Miley into a career beyond “Hannah Montana.”

Wal-Mart Has Designs On Miley

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009


Parents of tweens, don’t breathe a sigh of relief because your little girls have outgrown their “Hannah Montana” backpacks. The nation’s largest retail chain has more goodies coming to tempt them into spending their allowances.

According to Reuters, Wal-Mart has announced the launch of a fashion line with “Hannah” star Miley Cyrus, set to debut just in time for back-to-school shopping. The Disney princess will team with Max Azria of BCBGMAXAZRIA to design a line of graphic tees, tops, pants, shoes and accessories, all retailing for less than $20 each.

This sounds like a good deal for the budget-conscious teen. Miley’s pal Taylor Swift already has a line of sundresses available only at Wal-Mart. It certainly makes more sense than those overpriced “designer” lines some young actresses have done.
