Miley Cyrus Celebrates Hannah Montana’s 10th Anniversary
Miley Cyrus is marking the 10th anniversary of her hit show Hannah Montana by playing a drinking game.
The singer/actress shot to superstardom as the titular character on the Disney Channel series, which premiered on March 24, 2006 and ran for four seasons, until its final episode aired in 2011.
Ten years after the show’s launch, Cyrus relived her days on set with a pair of posts on Instagram.
The first image featured a text message conversation she had had with co-star Jason Earles, to whom she had sent a ‘selfie’ showing off her long locks.
Her accompanying text read: “How insane. 10 years later still laying around in a blonde wig,” to which Earles replied, “Try as you might, you can’t get away. Lol.”
Cyrus added, “@realdukeofearles (Jason) understands the insanity of it all…..” and then paid tribute to Hannah Montana and the rest of their cast and crew.
“Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary….,” she began the lengthy message. “To the world it’s a celebration of 10 years, but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the f**k any of us are…”
The 23-year-old hinted at some behind-the-scenes drama between the “hormonal teenagers,” comparing it to MTV reality show The Real World, but stated, “No matter what went on over the years… our love for each other was unquestionable….”
“Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given….,” she continued. “None of it would have been possible without every single person who ever contributed to the series…”
Cyrus goes on to thank her “loyal fans” for their unwavering support, before joking about killing off her Hannah Montana alter ego: “Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart!” she quipped.
She concluded the post by encouraging Hannah Montana devotees to rewatch the Disney show and have a little boozy fun.
“Celebrate this day with us!” she added. “Get real drunk and remember #HM4EVR send pics gettinnnnn (sic) buck wild in honor of this special day! #letsplayadrinkinggame watch HM and every time someone says her name take a shot! Yiew hew (sic)!”
Cyrus will soon be returning to TV in a more mature role in Woody Allen’s as-yet-untitled period drama, which will be set in the 1960s.
