Between the lack of pants and abudance of simulated same-sex kissing, it's easy to forget that Miley Cyrus still portrays Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel.
That series kicks off its final season on Sunday night and Miley previewed it a press conference this week.
"[It's about] her graduating, and seeing what college is all about and seeing whether she wants to pursue her career or go to school and try to live a normal life," Cyrus told reporters. "I can't believe it's already coming to an end, either. I mean, it just feels like we kind of just started."
Will Miley's musical makeover negatively affect her TV show's viewership?
Looking back on the series, Miley credits herself for starting a trend.
"It kind of has opened so many doors for other artists on Disney, too, to be able to involve music and acting and all that. I definitely didn't expect it to take off the way that it did, especially so soon."
But we can't help but wonder: will Miley's transformation into an adult artist hurt Hannah Montana? Will she lose viewers, as her latest album clearly lost fans. Cyrus says she can't worry about that:
"I can't only base my career off of the 6-year-olds. It's the 16-year-olds, the 26-year-olds, that's I'm trying to reach for now. That's not letting the younger kids down. I will continue to do things that will be good for them, too. But, I also have to move on."
That's fine and all, but can't she find a less desperate, more creative way of doing that?
