Hannah Montana made the Cyrus family millions of dollars, turned Miley Cyrus into a STAH and now Billy Ray has enough money to buy a Taco Party Pack for one whenever he damn well pleases. But all of that came at a price, of course. Miley tells Marie Claire (via UsWeekly) that being pimped out by Mickey Mouse at a young age really screwed with her brains and probably gave her body dysmorphia. This is just further proof that Hannah Montana ruined lives!
Miley says that starting at the young age of 11, she was told what to wear and how to wear it. That’s what usually happens when you play a character in a TV show. But Miley says that she didn’t even know who she was at the time.
“From the time I was 11, it was, ‘You’re a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing.’ Meanwhile, I’m this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup. It was like Toddlers & Tiaras. I had fucking flippers.
I was told for so long what a girl is supposed to be from being on that show. I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, Who the fuck am I?”
And just like Toddlers & Tiaras, Miley was fed caffeine to give her energy, but instead of Go-Go Juice, they poured coffee down her throat. I know, just coffee. Here I was thinking that Mickey Mouse shot up his child stars between the toes with meth.
“Every morning, I was getting coffee jammed down my throat to wake me up. I just had to keep going, be tough, be strong. Everything happened to me on that set.”
Working 12 hours a day at a young age eventually caught up with her and she developed an anxiety disorder. It didn’t help that she first got her period on the job and her mom Tish Cyrus had to put a tampon in before pushing her onto the set.
“It was so embarrassing, but I couldn’t leave. And I was crying, begging my mom, ‘You’re going to have to put the tampon in. I have to be on set. I would have anxiety attacks. I’d get hot flashes, feel like I was about to pass up or throw up. It would happen a lot before shows, and I’d have to cancel. Then the anxiety started coming from anxiety. I would be with my friends, thinking, I should be having so much fun. You get in this hole that seems like you’re never going to be able to get out of.”
Miley says that nowadays she’s much more comfortable with herself. Billy Ray and Tish, who was always on set with Miley, were asked to comment, but they just said “Huh?” before they continued to roll around on the hill of money their daughter brought in during the Hannah Montana days.
I was already a grown when Hannah Montana was on TV, but I had a friend who was really into it and made me watch a couple of episodes. Bitch loved that show and even had the album. The friend was in her early 20s at the time. Yes, I’ve already given her name to the proper authorities. Even then I knew that Hannah Montana was some dark-sided shit and that souls had been sold to make it. What Miley says confirms this. So this Earth needs to be cleansed of that evil shit. Delete every episode and burn all the money that was made from it since that cash is obviously dirty. Sorry, Billy Ray, no more Taco Party Packs for you.
