Miley Cyrus: "I Can't Be Hannah Montana Forever"

Miley Cyrus:

Miley Cyrus looks back over her shoulder on the April cover of Billboard magazine.

The 16-year-old actress dished to the mag about her new book, finding time to hang with her best friends, and her upcoming flick, Hannah Montana: The Movie. Check it:

On her new book, “Miles To Go”: “It’s just an honor for people to be able to relate to me and my music—and not so much the character anymore. I can’t be Hannah Montana forever. I have to have something after this. I can’t do this when I’m 30.”

On the end of her TV series, Hannah Montana: “This movie was never meant to be the end of Hannah Montana. The thing is, a lot of people put where the show’s future lays in my hands—and it’s not up to me. It’s up to Disney and whether they want more episodes, and we hope that they do.”

On spending time with her best friends: “This is, like, the first time I’ve seen all my friends in seven months. It’s hard, man. With all the stuff that goes on with this business, I only want to do something if I absolutely love it.”

  • mileyfan

    I hope she will do at least one more season of HannahMontana and a new soundtrack! MILEY ROCKS~~

  • http://www.miss-roberts.gportal.hu gerty

    she’s awesome. she’s great as hannah montana, but i definiately would like to see her in another stuff. as she said, she cant be hannah montana forever. they just cant do that franchise forever.

  • Rosa

    yeah .. that so much reminds me of hilary duff when she once said that she can’t be lizzie mcguire forever ..
    i just remember the first time i saw hannah montana ..
    when nobody knew who is miley cyrus ..
    and it just seems like yesterday ..
    it’s really overwhelming to see how that “unknown” girl became a huge superstar in a couple of years ..
    and how her life has changed 180Ù’ !!
    woah .. this seems really crazy !!

    well .. who knows now what her career will be like after HM ..
    nthn is clear about that yet ..
    but the movie seems cool ..
    and i think it will be worth watching it ..

    here ends another Disney channel hit show ..
    wondering what’s next !!

  • Farrah

    Lauren, I’m only a casual Miley fan, but I bought her book and it is surprisingly good. It’s cute and has a lot of insight for someone so young. I definitely recommend it.

    To Lauren (#2)

    Yes it is a good book to read, but you should shop around and see if you can get a good deal. The original asking price of 24.95 was a bit pricey for a book with 12 point type. You can literally read this book in one night. I did it over two nights and found it amusing and sad. Perhaps sad is the wrong word to be used here. lets use emotional.

    And in general…….

    I do think this is the last Hannah Montana season. I don’t have an exact count -and I can be wrong here- but I think there are still something like 21 or 22 un-aired episodes for this season. Disney will stretch those 22 odd episodes out across the rest of the 2009 calendar year in order to cover the Halloween/Xmas merchandise season. Plus, if they were really serious about a season 4, they would basically have to make a decision now. They can’t leave the entire cast and crew hanging around. The cast -especially Miley- are going to want to make commitments to do other things if there is no season 4 decision in place. Only makes common sense.

  • katie

    billy, i have a feeling they’re gonna have an abbreviated 4th season. but they will probably have one. i base this on the fact that you need 100 episodes to go into syndication and after season 3 is completed they’ll have less than 20 episodes to go (around 15, if they count the dvd-only episodes). disney makes sooooo much money off of hm, i’m sure they want a syndication run. that’s so raven is the only show they’ve pushed into big-time syndication thus far, but we’ll see.

    oh and regardless, i’m sure miley will continue to move forward with her career, with or without hannah. :)

  • Shirley

    i like miley and her shows.

  • http://jjj miley

    i’m sure she’ll go far with her music and career! everybody adores her, so she’ll always have fans! go miley!
    xoxo

  • jo

    Wow. Great interview. I totally agree- she can’t be hm forever. That’s just a fact. Although, she was born to be hannah.. It fits her so well and she’s done really well through it all. She’s great.

    RE: Katie #10:

    With 84 episodes, plus: HMTM, BOBW tour film, and a viariety of videos, extended footage of the show and tour. I would think Disney has enough for HM to go into syndication. I’m sure it will. It’s been a huge $$ maker for them. I dont think we’ll see a 4th season. The’ve stretch 3 seasons out over 4 years.

    I def. could see Miley & Emily doing a comedy something together in the future. I know Miley already has 2 films confirmed (J. Sparks, & More adv. in Babysitting, w/ Raven). The others have already started doing other Disney film & Music projects.

    i personally really enjoyed her book. it was funny and touching, and a true gift 2 her fans. it let u in on her life as miley cyrus and u learn things that u never would have known if u hadnt read her book. i reccomend it =)

  • Lauren

    thank you a lot for commenting back guys :)

  • http://JUstjaredjr. Sarah

    i loooove miley cyrus. i odnt want 2 see hannah montan (the music, character, show, or franchise come to an end) but i know it has to. disney has milked hannah montana 4 almost all its worth. they hav re-invented her music and stlye tho, so she should last a little longer thn she would hav otherwise. miley is supremely talented tho, and i wish her the best of luck in whatever she does. i hope she keeps acting and making music and stays out of trouble.

  • http://JUstjaredjr. Sarah

    read miles to go!!!! (i hope she writes another book in a few years) =)

  • hun98

    I want that book sooo bad! :D Cool cover! She rocks! I’ll still be your fan after HM is done (even though that’ll be sad) just as long as you never change yourself! I don’t want you to turn out like Hilary…

  • Izzy

  • Gemma

  • cc27

    OMG PLZ DON’T LET HANNAH MONTANA BE OVER PLZ!! :)
    WE LOVE HANNAH MONTANA <3
    And We Love MILEY CYRUS <3 :)

  • ivanka

    she looks cute in the coveer… a little photoshopped but its good even for her

  • lizzie

    sadly, she’ll probably fizzle after Hannah Montana. I mean, “the climb”, the show, &+ the movie have gotten so much more hype than her actual solo album. And I like miley, but a memoir at sixteen? I find that just a tad ridiculious.

    She’s a cool girl though, or so it seems. Like someone to kick it with.
    I’m not hating, just my thoughts.

    peace.
    :]

    @Lauren: Her book was actuallly pretty book. My mom read it and was inpressed by how well she put it together.

  • Kate

    Lauren- I actually bought this book for my sister and I ended up reading it! Haha it’s a really good book it gives you insight into miley being a regular girl, and not a superstar. I learned so much about miley that I would have never known without reading This book. So yea it’s worth reading. I got it at target for 16.45. You rock miley!!! Don’t ever stop being you!!!!!

  • erin

    hannah montana is over after this movie. no matter what anyone says, thats why they did the movie this way. she can’t end the movie as just miley and still doing HM the show. disney is setting her up so she can be JUST miley and do music as miley, but she can do things other than disney as far as movies go.
    disney is in no way giving her up. they’ll still get money off her music and all HM related things.

  • joss

    and that’s when her career ends, at hannah montana

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com Miley & The JoBros ROCK!

    Just have fun while

  • joecool

  • DAni

    @Lauren: It really is good, but its a really quick read

  • jossy

    aww well i’ll miss hannah
    but i know miley will be in the media for a while
    she has a great personality and talent
    & for those saying that her career is over
    after hannah: you don’t know that.
    FYI she doing a new movie from a book.
    i don’t know if it’s 100% true
    but it’s from that author that wrote the notebook
    and a walk to remember.
    so yeahh

  • WTF
