Miley and the Mouse Rumors
Miley has been making more headlines this week, and believe it or not, they DON'T involve a 'mystery man'!
Comments Cyrus made this past summer regarding the taping of her hit Disney Channel Show "Hannah Montana" as well as rumors of her behavior on the set of the show have been the cause of the latest gossip.
"I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It's what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people," Cyrus told PEOPLE, adding, "I couldn't do it alone. We have an amazing cast that is so supportive, including my dad who has been there for me every step of the way."
Rumors also have been circulating on the "Hannah" set that Cyrus and her famous father Billy Ray have been showing up late and openly talking about wanting to get fired. It was also rumored that Miley and co-star Emily Osment have been squabbling.
Official sources on the show have adamantly denied everything. To counter the negative press Disney has released a new opening date for the "Hannah Montana Movie", which will now be hitting theaters a whole month early (April 10th).
Let's be honest, with regards to the Miley/Emily Osment fighting rumors, they're teenage girls...and let's be honest teenage girls fight. That's life. As far as wanting to quit the show...Cyrus will have to let it go eventually, it's just a matter of when. Disney has them contracted for 3 seasons with an option for the fourth. I think the result of Cyrus' new movie project will help serve as an indicator of whether or not the she can make it without the mouse.
