Miley Cyrus quits Hannah Montana
Miley Cyrus was named Favourite Movie Actress at the Nickelodeon 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards yesterday (27.03.10), but later announced she is set to leave Disney show 'Hannah Montana'
Miley Cyrus has quit 'Hannah Montana'.
The 17-year-old star announced today (28.03.10) she would be leaving the Disney show to pursue her pop career full-time because she has "grown out" of it.
Miley - who has earned Disney over £500 million in the role - said: "I won't have this mould they want me to fit into. I can just be who I want to be. When I was 12 I thought, 'I want to be famous all the time. I want everybody to recognise me.' But as I've grown into Hannah Montana I've also grown out of her.
"I'm going to rejoice and be happy to finally not have to be somebody I'm not. Now that I'm older, people can say what they want and I'm like, 'Whatever.' "
Her decision follows Miley being named Favourite Movie Actress at the Nickelodeon 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards yesterday (27.03.10).
She was honoured for her role in the 'Hannah Montana' movie at the ceremony at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles and fought off stiff competition from Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez and Keke Palmer to win the accolade.
Miley was handed her award by Katy Perry shortly after she'd been sprayed with green gunge.
The singer - who went to the podium with actor Jonah Hill to present the award - opened the box to announce Miley as the winner when the famous gunge exploded onto her face.
Katy said: "I can't see anything. Why does it taste like boogers?"
Other winners included Taylor Lautner, who was named Favourite Movie Actor for his role as werewolf Jacob Black in the hugely successful 'Twilight' movies, while his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift won the Favourite Female Artist award ahead of Beyonce Knowles, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.
