Pretty amazing right? When Miley Cyrus initially auditioned for the Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana”, it wasn’t in fact for the lead role! When young Cyrus rocked up to the audition, it was in fact for Montana’s bestie, Lilly Truscott. The show, which followed a teenager leading a double-life (kinda like “The Lizzie Maguire Movie”), balancing normal high school woes and popstar fame!
After her audition, she quickly became the favorite to take the lead role, before skyrocketing to worldwide fame at just thirteen! The show ran for four total seasons, within which she managed to showcase her singing talent, and thus kickstarting her career.
“We Can’t Stop” Wasn’t for Miley
You often hear about songs being written for certain people and then ending up being a hit for another artist - almost like it had been written for them. This is the same story with Miley’s hit “We Can’t Stop.”
Released in 2013 (wow, can you believe that was almost a decade ago, whaaaat?), the party smash had been written for none other than Rihanna! Fun fact: Rihanna’s hits “Umbrella” and “Disturbia” were actually meant for Britney Spears and Chris Brown! A happy accident we think!
Her Film Debut Was On a Tim Burton film
The film, “Big Fish” may seem like an odd match for a kid who’d grown up on Disney Channel, but the fantasy comedy, directed by Mr. Tim Burton, was in fact Miley Cyrus’ first acting job!
There’s always something magical about Tim Burton films - maybe it’s his fantastical worlds which he creates. In the film, Cyrus had a small role at the age of 10, after she’d taken on acting classes. You probably would miss her if you didn’t know because she is such a baby in it!
Her Hit ‘Party in the USA’ Wasn’t Written for Miley!
Legend (Wikipedia) goes that the song was actually written by Dr. Luke (“Since U Been Gone”, “I Kissed a Girl”, “Who Knew” - wow, what a slew of hits!) but also had some help from Jessie J. The song in the first place was written to be sung by Jessie J, but she felt that the song wasn't quite her vibe, and sent it to Cyrus.
The song then went on to receive overwhelmingly positive feedback, peaking at the number two spot on the famed BillboardHot 100. Also every time the song comes on anywhere, people absolutely go bonkers and want to dance and yell about the USA.
She Has Tachycardia
Miley insists that her condition isn’t serious, but fans will always be worried when their favorite celeb opens up about a heart issue. It first came out in “Miles to Go”, her autobiography, that she had tachycardia. The condition means that the heart rate exceeds the range of what’s normal as far as the heart rate goes.
She says that while she’s on stage, the condition barely bothers her, but day-to-day she has moments where it does become difficult to live with. But we’re sure that if anyone is going to get the best care and treatment for anything, it’s going to be a celeb like Miley!
