Leaving Hannah Montana
for The Last Song, Miley Cyrus seems to have moved on from the Teen Choice Awards to the Oscars as well. Sources have confirmed that the 17-year-old actress will be appearing on the upcoming awards show as a presenter, joining several Hollywood greats.
The Hannah Montana star will be gracing the event with a number of teen idols. She has already been part of the big affair before, but it just gets better. She’ll be appearing with fellow Disney celebrity Zac Efron, and Twilight actors Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
It sounds like even more teens will be tuning in to the 82nd Annual Academy Awards just because of them. But as for those who aren’t big fans of theirs, we’ll still have our dose of stars.
The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences has already announced which major celebrities will make themselves seen on the red carpet. Apparently, last year’s Oscar winners Sean Penn, Kate Winslet and PenÃ©lope Cruz will be presenters as well.
Does Miley’s inclusion into this mean that she’s really established herself in the industry? We may have varying answers regarding that, but we can’t deny that this Hannah Montana star has had quite an impact on this generation.
Miley Cyrus has recently released her music video
for the upcoming movie The Last Song, in the hopes of stepping into more mature roles. With the conclusion of Hannah Montana, she’s bound to take part in several other projects as she gets older.
Whether or not she’ll win an Oscar eventually remains questionable, since we’re not even sure if she takes home any orange blimps in the upcoming Kids Choice Awards. Despite that though, her fans will certainly be pleased to know that Miley Cyrus will at least be making an appearance on this year’s Academy Awards.
We’re nearing the premiere of Hannah Montana‘s inevitable conclusion, and that only means the network will be releasing so many bonus features of the show via DVD. Associated Content reports that the final season of the Disney Channel series marks the release of this special disc on March 9, featuring favorite moments and an incredible surprise.
Apparently, the Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye DVD will be showcasing the finale of the series, along with an alternate ending for fans to enjoy. If anyone decides to pre-order it from Amazon.com, they’ll manage to see the series’ conclusion even before it hits television screens.
The basic rundown of the DVD is that it follows Miley as she makes her big decision regarding her rockstar life in Malibu and a return to Tennessee with her favorite horse. If you look at the front cover of the thing, you see the star with her pet Blue Jeans. Could that possibly be a clue?
Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye consists of 6 episodes from the Disney Channel comedy, with the epic finale that her fans await. There are also guest stars dominating the scene, from Cody Linley to American Idol’s David Archuleta.
As for the bonus features, there’s Sister Secrets and Hannah’s Highlights. The former is an in-depth look at the character through the eyes of Miley’s real life sister, while the latter covers the best bits of the show.
The alternate ending doesn’t exactly point to the protagonist leading her double life entirely. That feature is for the episode “He Could be the One,” which takes another look at Miley’s love life. Her romantic interest Jake returns to scene, so that’s definitely another big decision for her.
Anyway, you can see a sneak peek of the Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye DVD below. According to the official Walt Disney Studios website, it’s from the season 3 finale of the series.
Don’t forget, Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye hits stores on March 9 while the final season of the series premieres on the same month.
It’s really over for Hannah Montana
now that its star, Miley Cyrus, is moving on. She’s keeping busy with her latest movie and whipping up music for it, especially since she’s starring alongside her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, for the flick. With The Last Song opening this March, there’s bound to be plenty of promotions to increase the hype.
Aside from the many trailers and the behind-the-scenes snippets given by the 17-year-old star herself, we have the first music video for the movie. The Hannah Montana pop sensation is trying out a slower, deeper tune this time, with the song “When I Look at You.”
It certainly seems like Miley Cyrus is going for a more mature sound to match her desire to get more mature roles. The Last Song was specifically written for her by novelist Nicholas Sparks, so it looks like she’s truly leaving her Hannah Montana and Disney Channel past behind.
Seeing Liam Hemsworth by her side as she plays the piano on the clip below, you can bet this actress has really found that so-called inspiration she refers to at the beginning of the song. The two of them seem absolutely happy in one another’s company, and that’s not just when the cameras are rolling.
Miley talked about the single for The Last Song on a sneak peek of the movie, saying it was just ideal for the movie. “‘When I Look at You’ was actually a song that was going to go on my next record,” the star announced. “We listened to it and went, ‘Oh my gosh, this could not be more perfect.’ It describes the entire movie.”
Well, we won’t be seeing the film until March 31, but we have the video for “When I Look at You” below. Obviously, Miley Cyrus is having fun doing this for a living.
We hoped it was a horrible rumor.
But it appears there’s more truth than fiction to the report that Howard Stern is being considered as a replacement for Simon Cowell on American Idol.The shock jock took some time on his show this morning to discuss the Idol rumors and in a very Howard way, he managed to stir up even more controversy.
While FOX has denied approaching the shock jock, Stern confirmed that there has been interest in him permanently joining the Idol judging panel. Perhaps most shocking of all, Stern thinks he’d be just the guy for the job. “If I do say so myself, I can’t imagine anyone else but me replacing [Cowell]. I mean, I don’t know. How else are they going to make that show work? Who knows how to broadcast and who knows how to be interesting? And who’s not afraid to speak their mind?”
If FOX were to hire Hoard Stern, it would cost them a pretty penny. The shock jock is finishing up a 5 year 500 million dollar contract with Sirius radio and Stern would require a similar paycheck to judge Idol. “They’d have to pay me a ton of dough because I already make a ton of dough.” So, what is a ton of dough according to Stern? He says he could be persuaded to judge what he called a “f’ing karaoke show” for $100 million dollars. “Yeah, I would do that show for $100 million.” How magnanimous of you Howard!
If Howard were to join the Idol judges’ panel, you can guarantee that there would be some issues between him and the other new Idol judge, Ellen DeGeneres. When he wasn’t busy demanding his bloated price or calling Idol a karaoke show, he spent his time lewdly dissing Ellen and the ways he’d shut her up. (Things I can’t write about on a family friendly site.) While reports of a Simon and Ellen feud may strictly be rumors, I imagine the Ellen and Howard feud has already begun.
Here’s to hoping that FOX realizes there are about a 100 million better ways to spend a 100 million than giving Howard Stern a place on American Idol.
Now that Hannah Montana
is marching towards its finale, the show’s bound to offer up some great surprises to increase the hype. That’s not to mention dialing up the comedy for an upcoming episode titled “The Wheel Near My Bed (Keeps On Turnin’)”.
Just Jared Jr. reports that actor Jon Cryer will be a guest star on the said installment, and will be playing a crucial part in the series. He’s bagged the role of father to Lilly (Emily Osment), the best friend of the series’ lead character, Miley.
Most of us know the 44-year-old star as Alan Harper on the CBS comedy series Two and a Half Men. He’s had bad luck in relationships there, and it seems like that’s carried on to his stint on the Disney Channel series.
On “The Wheel Near My Bed (Keeps On Turnin’)”, Cryer plays a harebrained dad to Lilly. We expect the two of them to get along though, considering how crazy this girl can get sometimes. Maybe it’s in the genes.
The Hannah Montana episode starts off with Lilly’s mom (guest star Heather Locklear) taking on a new job which requires her to travel to Atlanta. Since she’s left alone, Lilly has to find another place to stay.
Her best friend’s dad Robby Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus) invites her over to stay with the Stewarts, which seems a very exciting prospect at first. Unfortunately, things aren’t as pleasing for Miley (Miley Cyrus). You’d think she’d be happy to spend the night with her pal, but she complains to her dad about their living arrangements.
When Lilly overhears, she decides to move into the cramped apartment of her dad, Kenneth (Jon Cryer). Too bad his antics could be far worse than Miley’s,
The episode “The Wheel Near My Bed (Keeps On Turnin’)” will debut on February 21 at 8PM on the Disney Channel. Be sure to catch the Two and a Half Men
Since the end of Hannah Montana
has been confirmed, there’s bound to be new projects out there for Disney star Miley Cyrus. According to a report by Variety, the 17-year-old pop sensation is currently in talks for a remake of the original French hit LOL: Laughing Out Loud. What’s more, it’s Demi Moore who will supposedly play her mother in the English-language version.
Miley Cyrus will be portraying the role of a 15-year-old girl who was recently dumped by her experienced boyfriend. In the hopes of moving on, she instead pursues his best friend. It’s also revenge, of course.
Meanwhile, Demi Moore will reportedly be the 40-year-old divorcee mom who is struggling to get on with her life. As a single parent, she has quite a lot on her plate. Her relationship with her daughter is fraught with trouble, and things just seem to be getting worse.
LOL: Laughing Out Loud also deals with the youth’s obsession with instant messaging, given the title of the film. It’s going to tie in with the mother-daughter story, certainly Miley Cyrus’ cup of tea.
The original version of the film starred Sophie Marceau and Christa Theret, hitting theaters in 2008. It managed to gross over $20 million. LOL: Laughing Out Loud was written and directed by Lisa Azuelos, who will also be handling the international version.
With Miley Cyrus on board, this remake is bound to be another commercial success for the Hannah Montana star. Since Demi Moore, another big name in Hollywood, is joining her, there’s no doubt LOL: Laughing Out Loud will be drawing in viewers.
It’s another step towards more mature roles for Miley Cyrus, since she’s just wrapped up filming for the Nicholas Sparks-penned movie The Last Song. She’s constantly proving that she’s not just limited to Disney roles, but can branch out into bigger projects.
