It’s been 16 years since Hannah Montana premiered on the Disney Channel, introducing the force of nature that is Miley Cyrus to the world.
The 30-year-old Flowers singer celebrated the occasion with a post on Twitter.
‘Happy 16th Hannah-versary! 16 years ago my life changed forever when HM premiered,’ the Party in the U.S.A. singer wrote.
‘Because of your loyalty and support I’ve had the honor to travel the world for over a decade and perform for fans that bring so much greatness into my life.’
The post included a short video clip of a grown up Miley – who recently celebrated the release of her new album Endless Summer Vacation – on stage singing the iconic Hoedown Throwdown song from the series.
Hoedown Throwdown was one of the fictional pop star Hannah Montana’s biggest hits.
The song was featured in Hannah Montana: The Movie, which was released in theaters in 2009.
In the clip, Miley wore an electric blue metallic catsuit with vibrant blue eyeshadow on her lids.
‘My dream is to sing ‘Hoedown Throwdown,’ Cyrus said in video from one of her past concerts.
‘I can’t remember how it goes,’ she admitted to the audience. You tell me.’
The lyrics came back to her as she rapped, ‘Pop it, lock it, polka dot it, country fivin’, hip hop hip.’
The crowd then took over and sang the next line, causing the Wrecking Ball singer to laugh and say, ‘Alright you’re forgetting it too, I’m glad.’
In a second post commemorating the anniversary, she shared images from Hannah Montana and captioned it, ‘Grateful to each of you for all of your love & ATTENTION! You personally paved my path! Eternally thankful! ‘
Earlier this month, the Muddy Feet singer revealed that she’s the ‘happiest she has been in a long time,’ according to a source from People.
‘She’s the healthiest and happiest she’s been in a long time,’ the magazine reported. ‘Everyone was blaming her for the divorce and calling her this wild child, but that wasn’t fair. Their relationship and marriage was toxic, and she was heartbroken.’
But with her new album, the singer, 30, is finally ready to ‘tell her side of the story’ after having ‘had time to process and heal’ from her divorce from Liam Hemsworth, 33, in 2020.
The former couple met in 2009 while filming the movie The Last Song. They had an on/off relationship for years before marrying in December 2018.
They split in August 2019 and divorced in February 2020 and now fans think the lyrics to Flowers and Muddy Feet are about her marriage.
In Flowers, she sings, ‘Built a home and watched it burn.’ The couple lost their home in Malibu in the 2018 Woolsey Fire.
And now her brand new track Muddy Feet has sparked a social media backlash against her Australian ex – with fans wildly speculating the song’s lyrics are about the actor cheating on her.
The Party in the U.S.A. singer teamed with Sia on the song which features the lyrics: ‘And you smell like perfume that I didn’t buy.
‘Now I know why you’ve been closing the curtains. Get the f**k out of my house. ‘I don’t know. Who the hell you think you’re messin’ with.’
There is no indication or suggestion Hemsworth was unfaithful to Cyrus – but fans have been claiming on social media the track is ‘confirmation’ Cyrus caught the actor stepping out
