Miley Cyrus: 'Operation Take Miley Down' Fails

Miley Cyrus: 'Operation Take Miley Down' Fails

Miley Cyrus joins the growing list of celebrities, like new pal Demi Lovato, who were bullied during her school days back in Tennessee.

The 16-year-old Hannah Montana starlet let Access Hollywood have a sneak peek of her new book, “Miles To Go,” and revealed her painful past of being bullied. She shared, “The girls took it beyond normal bullying. These were big, tough girls. I was scrawny and short. They were fully capable of doing me bodily harm. They shoved me in. I was trapped. I banged on the door until my fists hurt. Nobody came. I spent what felt like an hour in there, waiting for someone to rescue me, wondering how my life had gotten so messed up.”

Miley continued, “It seemed like ‘Operation Make Miley Miserable’ was escalating to a new level. More like ‘Operation Take Miley Down’. Three girls strutted up and stood towering over me. My stomach churned. I clutched my grilled cheese sandwich like it was the hand of my best friend. It pretty much was my best friend those days. I was done for. They started cussing me and telling me to get up. I sat there, frozen. I didn’t know what to do. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore. I wasn’t chicken. What could they do to me? I was surrounded by people. I stood up, still a foot shorter then they were, and said, ‘What’s your problem? What did I ever do to you?’”

“Miles to Go” is out in stores now. Miley will be having a book signing this Saturday, March 7 at Barnes and Noble at The Grove (189 Grove Drive, Los Angeles) at 12 noon.

  • jo

    She’s alright but this is ridiculous. She’s 16 and already has a memoir?? For goodness sakes Disney is really milking her dry.

  • jilli

    …I don’t even know what to say. I guess Selena’s next. I wonder who bullied her. Not saying I don’t believe her, but these things are just coming out of the woodwork.

  • Emma

    I want the book, but i live in Sweden and i dont know how to get it :( can someone please help me ? Thanks! MILEY <3

  • katie

    jilli, really, a lot of people were bullied as children. it’s not at all unusual. heck, i can still remember some girl locking me in a classroom and waiting there in the dark until the janitor heard me and got me out! it’s a part of growing up for many, many people.

  • mileyfan

    I’m reading this book right now, and it’s amazing! (haha i just read the part that’s quoted) It really lets you get to know her a lot better.

  • sophie ojd

    Poor MILEY.. she was bullied in her schooldays, but now she’s far away from that. YAY MILEY.
    I WANT TO READ HER BOOK!!!
    Can’t wait

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Billythekidny billythekid

    I haven’t read the book but I read these quotes last night online somewhere. The part about her clenching her grilled-cheese sandwich like it was her best friend made me laugh. Plus you got to imagine Miley about 10 years old or so and the “big girls” are probably like 11 or 12. The world really does seem bigger when you are young and small :). Well, if she dishes out odds and ends like she did for an hour on Rich and Johnjay (I think thats right), I think this will probably turn out to be a decent read.

  • jenniiii

    Reading the book… I am surprise it is really good
    It really let’s you know the real miley
    Every miley fan should read

    I am like one of her biggest fan
    Miley you are the best

    Its a really enjoyable book some parts are so sad like about her grandfather

  • http://MILEY-n-hannah.skyblog.com MILEY’S FAAAAAN

    Billy,

    i didn’t understand this part –> “f she dishes out odds and ends like she did for an hour on Rich and Johnjay (I think thats right), I think this will probably turn out to be a decent read.”

    it was to hard for me lol, i agree with you if you already saw a pictur of a young miley you’ll notice how “small” “fragil” and “slim” she was…. but now she’s a STRONG young woman lol –> right now, she IS the BIG girl lol^^

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/nyjonasfan01 Mrs.NickJonas

    eww I hate her :P
    Your all acting like 9 year old’s “OMG I want the book!” “poor miley :(” “I love you Miley!”
    Please no one cares!

  • cc27

    :O I got bullied too .. when i was 5-6

  • imtooldtocareaboutthisstuff:)

    This book seems like its really going to show us who she is inside. She is always talking about being misunderstood and people pass judgement on her so quick Im happy she is showing the world who she is! Shes not writting this for sympathy…A star as big as Miley with such a large platform to speak on has an obligation to speak out about things that could potential shed light on a way to stop bullying. Its not ” no big deal” and no “everyone doesnt go through it” Its wrong and in alot of cases criminal and Im glad she is talking about and mentioning it in a book..Way to go Miley I am proud of you for standing up..your an inspiration!

  • andrea

    i love her :)
    she is so talented.

  • killa

    jesus, everyone in disney is getting bullied nowadays. I guess sob stories are much relateable to “life with the rich and famous” Quit fakin’ the funk. I’m sure she was bullied but the story seems so over exaggerated. You were the kid with a famous father, who the hell would punk you?

  • jilli

    Katie I know I’m just saying Miley’s never talked about it before maybe she didn’t want to or whatever. But you’re right a lot of kids have been bullied. I have, but it’s not physically it’s verbally. I mean you’d think in High school it’d lessen, but I guess not. And the thing is I don’t even know what I did! People just talk.

  • d

    I love how she’s a REAL GIRL.

    People forget she lived a regular life in Tenn. until about the age of 12 or so.
    Obviously she went through real life experiences and i dont see the harm in inspiring young girls through her writings?

  • :P

    okay not starting anything here but come on! She is 16 and doing a memoir! thats insane! and yes I get that some kids were “bullied” in elementary school though it was most likely teasing I feel that she just is trying to direct more attention to herself now that selena gomez and demi lovato are “teen queens” she probably feels as though they are thaking her spot light I don’t know but all i do know is that I find selena and demi as better role models for young girls because they don’t take inappropriate pictures and not apologize and admit it was a mistake nor do the publicaly dis their exes nor go and make a videoto trash someone and hten say your were just kidding seriously she needs to grow up

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com sweetbella

    oh man!!! i relly want to read that book!!! BUT i’m not from USA.
    i’m from netherlands antillans. i don’t even know where to find one(SO SAD).

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com sweetbella

    even tough is 9 to 14 years old. i still want read it. ( i’m 16 years old)

  • Carter

    I am not really a big fan of Miley Cyrus but I decided to get the book today. It was a easy read and it was somewhat enjoyable. A lot of life lessons in the book. I liked the photos in the book, comments written on the sides of the pages and how the book had little lists throughout it. It sucked that she had to bullied(I have never been bullied so I wouldn’t know how she felt), but it seemed to me that the bullying made her a better person.

  • Amanda

    p.s. she is such a freakingg drama queen

    pps i actually do like her new song “The Climb” and kinda actually wanna see her movie!!! so im not a complete Miley hater (in fact i used to watch Hannah Montana all the time haha i admit it, that show’s pretty funny), but i just think that she has a huge huge huge ego and is always looking for more publicity and attention. and she is trying to talk about this “bullying” to get more people to think that she is just a normal, average, girl at heart and i think the whole act she is putting on is soo not who she really is. she is a hypocrite. that’s it. i’m done now. haha u can all go back to saying how much u wanna buy this book and give her all the business u want cause i dont much care. u can all hate me too, it doesnt matter cause i don’t know any of u. sorry i know im overreacting

  • http://www.keeyahjanae.blogspot.com N’keeyah

    Miley is a real person and this proves it. I was bullied in school for years. I have been beat up in the bathroom and other people watched. I can relate to this. So Go Miley!

  • http://www.keeyahjanae.blogspot.com N’keeyah

    Plus I’m going to her book signing this Saturday at the grove. If you live in other countries and want her book try Amazon.com and see if they ship it to your country (might charge extra).

  • Kami

    Well, in school, everything is not happyness =(

  • vanessajonas

    aw yeah poor miley…
    now she wants to be the victim.. gosh she always finds a way to call the attention ..ANNOYING

  • francesca

    bullies are insecure people who take out their anger on others.
    in their faces that miley is so successful and they’re probably still insecure!

    yoouuu go girrrrl!
    love yah miley!

  • Rachel

    ???
    well i guess everyone is bullied in school.
    but some people really like to emphasise things.

    why would anyone want to beat her up??

  • Teresa

    Aww! Sounds like my bestfriend in second grade! I was taller than everyone else and the boys would pick on her so badly. So,I always stood up for her. :)

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com Nick Jonas’ girlfriend

    I was bullied
    in school when I
    was in kindergarden.
    My bff was so mean to
    me and my cousin.
    She even threatend
    to shoot me.
    CRAZY!

  • yo

    okay that was just sad and mean.
    but its just like haters they just keep bashing
    and bashing on miley or like selena
    miley and selena have to stand up :]
    that’s whay miley is doing but selena has
    to stand up and not let the haters bring her
    down. miley oyur awesome :]

  • lol

    i was never bullied so i don’t know how it feels but how miley writes it it seems really bad but i think she might be like over-exageratting a bit she could be a drama queen sometimes lol

    i can’t wait to get the book!

    To Miley Faaaaan (#13),

    Basically saying if she is as open in her book as she was for that hour on the Johnjay show, the book ought to be worth reading.

    To MrsNickJonas (#14),

    It was apparently important enough to get you to read about it and comment on it here. So much for “…..no one cares!”

    To P. (#21),

    That has to be one of the longest run on sentences of all history. This isn’t Youtube, and you do have a 5000 character count to work with, so using a few of these…..and some of these,,,,, might actually help people to read just what you are actually trying to say. All of what you are trying to say isn’t wrong, it’s just that you aren’t saying it well enough for others to understand. Poor Miley Faaaaan, if she has trouble understanding me, she is probably doing backflips over you.

    And finally to VanessaJonas,

    Life here would be boring without you to liven things up. Well, I am very happy to see that Miley has again gotten under your skin. I think that’s sort of the whole point. Not so much to get under someone’s skin, but to make a few waves and keep herself current. And she seems to be doing a bang up job of it. But I don’t want to see overkill. You know, the sort that killed the Jonas movie? :)

  • http://www.oceanup.com anon

    God! she’s annoying! why is this girl so famous? oh yeah cus of little kids with no taste in music at all…i forgot my bad!

  • Victoria

    love miley, hate bullies!

  • kate

    okay JUST TO THROW THIS OUT THERE “real bullying” is in high school years. elementary school and middle school do not count, i’m sorry. unless you were beat up every day and physical stuff.

  • :P

    to # 36 billythekid. Oh! You think i am intimidated by you? Please! And talk about run ons look at your name! Seriously this isn’t a lesson in grammar I don’t see why you get so upset about lacking punctuation is is NO BIG DEAL! You really make me laugh

  • :P

    Okay, not starting anything here but come on! She is 16 and doing a memoir! Thats insane! And yes I get that some kids were “bullied” in elementary school though it was most likely teasing. I feel that she just is trying to direct more attention to herself now that Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato are “teen queens” she probably feels as though they are thaking her spot light. I don’t know but what I do know is that I find Selena and Demi to be better role models for young girls, because they don’t take inappropriate pictures and not apologize and admit it was a mistake. Nor do the publicaly dis their exes, nor go and make a video to trash someone and then say your were just kidding seriously she needs to grow up!
    How does that suit ya?

  • http://www.keeyahjanae.blogspot.com N’keeyah

    Teasing is not cool. Anyone who says teasing is harmless in an idiot. Teasing causes emotional scars that people sometimes can’t get passed. Miley is a good role model because she owns up when she makes mistakes. I admire her for that.

  • lilix

    trying to get a lil compassion??? uhuh

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Billythekidny billythekid

    To P. # 40 and 41,

    I never considered myself to be intimidating. I simply call them as I see them, and I thought your run on sentence to be ridiculous, so i decided to call you out on it. And I must congratulate you because it seems to have worked; that is, you rewrote your comment using a few of those thingys I pointed out to you :).

    You say she is 16 and doing a memoir. Good for her! She has lived a lifetime of experiences in those 16 years. We have no guarantee on tomorrow so good for her, she is now an author.

    I don’t see a single relevancy to your statement concerning Selena and Demi’s new found popularity on Disney. When this book deal was first signed, Selena was barely known outside Disney and Demi was an unknown. Know your facts.

    And actually it is a decent role model who can make a mistake, major or minor, and have the guts to admit it was a mistake.

    Perhaps Nick shouldn’t have “dissed” her? And a parody is exactly what it’s intended to be. A comedic take on a certain subject matter. Its done all the time, only some people’s skin is too thin to accept it as such and have to try to turn it into a major attack. Miley is parodied all the time.

    And last, but not least, I think Miley is extremely grown up. She still has alot of kid in her, but plenty of adult common sense. Does she make mistakes and even sometimes look foolish? Sure, but that’s what life is all about. Hope this suits you.

  • :P

    Actually it makes me think you are some creep who is in love with her

  • natasha

    she’s just trying to all her fans back that she lost from her “photo scandal.” seriously why would you buy that book? she wants people to feel sorry for her. i don’t feel sorry for her, EVERYONE gets bullied at times. but we don’t make a book about it…

  • :P

    And also to Billythekid, Selena was never an unknown nor was Demi Selena has been acting since she was quite young and Demi starred in a mini show on Disney. I also really don’t care what you think about my grammar I only rewrote that piece to show you that I am capable of doing so. I could honestly care less about punctuation while using the computer

  • :P

    natasha I so agree w/ you

  • Rochel

    Why cant you people just make a simple comment instead of
    thrashing the star or going after each other.
    I can see why some of the stars want their lifes private.
    No matter what they say or do their is always have to be something
    mean said about them.
    Have you ever thought of putting yourself in their place ?
    They say Black and you say White, its like listening to small children bickering at each other..

  • me.

    IT SOUNDS LIKE A FANFICTION. lmfao
    it’s just my opinian though. you guys don’t need to attack me (:
