Alright all you Hannah Montana fans (ahem, I guess I’ll include myself in that “all you” statement.) We can breathe a sigh of relief!
Despite the rumors than ran a muck this summer, Miley Cyrus is NOT leaving Hannah Montana.
“I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It’s what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people,” Cyrus tells People magazine, adding, “I couldn’t do it alone. We have an amazing cast that is so supportive, including my dad who has been there for me every step of the way.”
Over the weekend, more rumors surfaced that her and her dad Billy Ray were causing crazy amounts of drama on the set of the show, and that Miley was on the outs with HM costar Emily Osment. Miley, of course, refutes these rumors and says it’s “a lot of craziness.”
And while she and Emily have the occasional fight on set, the source adds the teen duo are like sisters, and make up quickly.
A Disney Channel rep had the following to say, “Miley is really devoted to the show and she’s really upset by the gossip. Miley is never late to work. Every minute of her day is planned out. When she’s not shooting the movie or the series, she’s recording the [Hannah Montana] soundtrack. She has a lot invested in Hannah Montana. It’s not going away any time soon.”
“I’m really excited about our new season,” Miley said. “We are making great new episodes that I can’t wait for our fans to see.”
Filming on the show’s third season began last month and the network has a contractional option to film a fourth season in the future.
Break out those blonde wigs, kids! Because good ol’ Hannah Montana is here to stay!
