Miley Cyrus Opens Up About How She Struggled Filming Hannah Montana
Season 13 of NBC’s hit show, The Voice, premiered earlier this week, and this time, we got to learn just a little bit more about the judges. To celebrate the start of the newest season, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, and Jennifer Hudson all reminisced over what their lives were like back when they were just 13 years old. Life seemed pretty normal for most of the celebs, but MiCy was def the exception.
As we all know by now, the songstress got her start on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana at just 11 years old, and with the show taking off as quickly as it did, a normal childhood just wasn’t in cards.
“When I was 13 years old, I was filming Hannah Montana, so, I was working,” she explained on the singing competition. “I know Adam and everyone else will have these stories of, ‘Oh, like I was in school, I was in whatever;’ I was working.”
Although it does seem completely AMAZING to have had so much success at such a young age, we can totally understand why she feels like she may have missed out on some pretty important years.
While the Maroon 5 crooner recalled memories of being totally uncool in school and J-Hud looked back on the time she would spend dreaming of becoming a famous singer on the church steps, the 24-year-old remembered having a very different experience as a young teen.
“I remember being 13, I had a real short attention span. I just wanted to hang with my brothers and sisters. I’m much more focused today.”
Now that we’ve moved past the Hannah Montana era, the Bangerz era, and even the Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz era, we’re all ready to move on to even bigger and better things. Miley’s sixth studio album, Younger Now, comes out TOMORROW and we are FREAKING OUT! Based on the album title, it seems like the Disney Channel queen finally got the chance to experience some of the youth she missed out on when she was a teenager.
Miley owes a lot to Disney Channel, but it’s clear she’s not the biggest fan:
When she and Idina Menzel bonded over being Disney's 'servants'
On Sept. 29 when Miley took over hosting duties for her friend, Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show, she had the chance to interview Idina Menzel (the voice of Elsa in Disney's Frozen). The Broadway star mentioned that even her son was sick of the hit song "Let it Go" and then (jokingly) admitted, "I'm a servant to Disney." Miley didn't even skip a beat when she responded, "Welcome! No one knows that better than me, baby!" Idina quickly tried to change the mood saying, "I love Disney and I work for Disney," but MiCy's real feelings about the network were clear.
