Miley Cyrus appeared on a special segment of The Voice via a digital exclusive where she discussed being 13 and filming the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. The clip is in honor of the show’s thirteenth season and features judges Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, and Miley Cyrus discussing what they remember most about being 13.
What Miley remembered most about being 13-years-old caught many in the audience off guard. While the other judges remembered being in school and spending time with friends, Miley remembered struggling in her life, working on Hannah Montana, and said she had a very short attention span.
The remarks have sparked dialogue across social media networks as some have felt that Miley Cyrus may have had difficulties in her childhood.
From Miley’s comments, it’s hard to discern if she was actually unhappy or not, but she definitely expressed feeling that she had missed out.
Miley Cyrus first appeared in the 2001 television series Doc when she was nine-years-old. Miley was filming Hannah Montana during most of her formative years, and it seems that working as a child actress, even if for Disney, took its toll.
Miley sounded regretful and even sorrowful about some of the things she missed out on while growing up. Though for many kids, Disney seems like a dream come true and while Hannah Montana presented a teen with a perfect life, Miley made it clear that her life was anything but perfect.
Speaking about the other judges, Miley specifically mentioned that they were probably in school when they were 13 years old.
Miley didn’t have those stories to share. She also spoke about struggling while acting on the projects and said she had trouble focusing because she wanted to hang out with her siblings.
Miley also spoke about the differences between herself now and back when she was 13. She described herself as more focused today.
As a singer, Miley continues to release different video shorts. In addition to her work as a judge on The Voice, Miley appeared as Lennie Dale on the television series Crisis in Six Scenes.
