IT'S A WRAP
"Hannah Montana," the TV show that made Cyrus a household name, is coming to an end. (The fourth and final season of the series will air this summer.) For Cyrus, its conclusion comes with a mixture of exultation-the May 16 wrap party at h.wood in Hollywood featured two kiddie legal drinks, a "Hannah Montana" tea with ginger and lemon and a "Miley Stewart" sweet tea-and relief. But it's relief tinged with the acknowledgement that the end of the TV show just frees Cyrus up for more work.
"It's hard when you're doing a show and you're going to London for two days and then you come back and you're doing the show again," she says. "I can kind of bounce around everywhere and I don't really have something that's tying me back here."
A big part of the appeal of "Hannah Montana" was seeing her flip between the two characters she portrayed on the show: schoolgirl by day, pop star by night. The same could be said of Cyrus, as she's formed some definite teenager pop culture opinions in her downtime from world domination. Lady Gaga gets a thumbs up - "unlike a lot of artists, all her music does mean something to her personally" -and she can't quite find it in herself to suspend her belief enough to watch "Glee" even though the show featured "The Climb" in a recent episode.
"Honestly, musicals? I just can't. What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes?" She pauses for a second, and then laughs. "It would get hits on YouTube."
