The age old question has finally been answered — yes, Hannah Montana is a total copycat of Lizzie McGuire!
LOLz, OK, that obviously isn’t fair to the creators of those shows, but as far as star Miley Cyrus is concerned, her entire career — and most especially her role as an undercover pop star — can be traced back to one role model.
On Wednesday night, Miley posted another new episode of her Instagram Live show, Bright Minded, in which she chatted online with (while keeping her physical distance from) guests Reese Witherspoon, Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa, and of course the woman who was her biggest inspiration, Hilary Duff.
Mileybird sang the praises of Hilary to her face, telling her she was “the reason that I wanted to do any of this.” She declared:
“I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11 and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt and Uggs to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and Uggs.”
OMG! The thought of baby Miley fan-girling so hard is ADORABLE! And you can watch a bit of it as gurl included a vintage clip of the pair talking during a MuchMusic show from way back at the start of the Hannah Montana explosion.
The Party In The USA singer went on to tell her fellow Disney Channel alum she went to El Lay “almost immediately” after that “so I could audition for Disney and I ended up getting the role.”
“But the only reason I wanted it was so I could do whatever you did. And so really, I don’t think I gave a s**t about being an actress or a singer. I just wanted to copy you no matter what.”
So there you have it. There would be no Hannah Montana without Lizzie McGuire! Miley gushed:
“So I just wanted to say thank you again for just inspiring me. I would never be sitting here, being able to be a light if it wasn’t for you and you showing me how to do that.”
Hilary sent the love right back, exclaiming:
“First of all, you’re so sweet, and I feel like I’ve known you for such a long time. Just to hear you say that, I feel like you have been such a bright light and you have made so many choices that have been so bold and you’re an inspiration to me and to all of us — and you continue to be.”
It all starts about 18:20 (below)!
