Music lovers have had a fantastic year in 2023, with some incredible releases from top artists like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. Miley’s “Endless Summer Vacation” and Taylor’s “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” and “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” have all been hits. Adding to the excitement, Miley has gifted fans with a new song called “Used To Be Young,” which she has also turned into an enthralling TikTok series.
Miley is excited about the series, which takes inspiration from her new song. The series will cover thirty years of her life, beginning from her birth year in 1992 until 2023. In the first video, Miley lounges on a couch with an iPad and mentions that she has nowhere to go, just like the viewers.
One of the most exciting moments to look forward to in the series is discovering how Miley landed the role of Hannah Montana, especially since it was almost given to someone else.
When I was younger, I used to love watching Hannah Montana on Disney Channel. Even though the show had some inconsistencies, like how no one could recognize Miley with her wig on, it tackled real-life issues that resonated with viewers. Watching Miley deal with sickness, loss of a loved one, and friendship problems made her feel like a friend by the time the series ended. It’s crazy to imagine someone else playing the lead role, but in the first video of her TikTok series, Miley revealed that she initially auditioned for the role of Lilly, Hannah’s best friend. However, the producers asked her to submit an audition tape for the lead role under the name Chloe. Unfortunately, Miley was too young and small to fit in with the rest of the cast at the time, and she didn’t make the cut. But after a year, the studio gave her another chance, and she came back to LA to prove that she was ready for the part.
Hannah Montana was an instant hit on Disney Channel, drawing in high ratings and gaining a growing fan base. However, despite the success of her alter ego, Miley Cyrus revealed in a recent TikTok video that she didn’t feel valued in her personal life in the same way. With her 2007 album Meet Miley Cyrus, the singer hoped to clarify that she was the voice behind Hannah Montana. Nevertheless, the divide between her two personas continued to expand. Miley has been candid about the negative impact of feeling like people cared more about her fictional self than her real identity. The show’s premise that being in character makes you more valuable was ingrained in her mind, leading her to believe that nobody would care about her without Hannah Montana.
