Anyone else wonder why the entertainment world has their panties in a twist over Miley Cyrus putting an end to her Hannah Montana days?
We all knew this was coming. Much like Hilary Duff once let Lizzie McGuire go, it was only a matter of time before Miley said goodbye to her blonde-wigged alter-ego.
The fact that the popular series has lasted four seasons is a testament to Miley's appreciation of Disney. If I were he I probably would have bailed after the Hannah Montana Movie hit theaters.
I do give Cyrus credit though, she's been really smart about her career thus far. Her slow, but deliberate seperate from her Hannah character has made it easy for her fans to grow up with her. She hasn't left many feeling alienated, and in the mean time has even matured to the point where she's gained support from older audiences (admit it, you've belted out "Party in the USA" when it has come on the radio). This spring she'll hit the big screen in her first non-Disney film: "The Last Song". The movie, which was written specifically for her by best-selling author Nicklas Sparks, also stars some solid adult talent (Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston) which should be a great resume booster for the young talent.
