Here’s Miley Cyrus Re-Watching Her Hannah Montana Audition
Whenever celebrities decide to get off their vacation-going, selfie-taking, social media hiatus-ing butts and promote something, we getÂ pelted with a flurry of attention-grabbing sound bites and stunts engineered to make usÂ go from calmly sitting in front of a laptop to being shookethÂ real quick.
Let’s take Miley Cyrus for an example.
Yesterday she released her first single in years that wasnâ€™t fueled by excessive drug use and a need to rebel against the system. One of her press stops was Radio Disney, where she got surprised with a video of her first audition for Hannah Montana.
Obviously sheâ€™s pandering to her long-term fans who have been patiently awaiting her return to normalcy â€“ the same fans Miley’s really counting on to like her new album. But honestly, everybody loves watching audition tapes, so really this is a gift all Miley fans can appreciate.
â€œYou’re all going to freak out,â€ Miley remarked as the video started to play, adding that in the video she can’t believe she was bold enough at the time to wear a T-shirt that said, â€œI should have my own TV show.â€
The video shows that baby Miley was just as precocious as adult Miley, although itâ€™s hard to glean that much from the video unless you watch it multiple times because they’re watching her auditionÂ on a teeny tiny iPad that everybody in the studio was talking over.
Not that Miley seems to mind. She can’t help but describe the viewing experience with a whole bunch of positive adjectives.
“That is so funny. That is crazy. That is a jewel. That is a gem,” Miley gushes.
Still, though watching the video may be slightly disappointing to some Miley fans, it is undeniably cute â€“ just like her new single “Malibu.”
Aren’t the parallels of marketing fun?
