Miley Cyrus’ ‘Hannah Montana’ to End This Year

Miley Cyrus is all set to shake off the alter ego that launched her into superstardom.

Cyrus’ blockbuster show Hannah Montana will wrap production forever in 2010, reps for Disney confirmed to the New York Post Friday. The Disney Channel series — about average teen “Miley Stewart” who secretly moonlights as pop star Hannah Montana — begins shooting its fourth season Jan. 18, concluding sometime this summer.

Hannah Montana’s season-three finale, “Is Miley Saying Goodbye?” airs in mid-March, and mirrors the actress-singer’s own growing pains. “It’s one of the things [her character Miley Stewart] has been wrestling with for months,” Disney Channel executive Andy Bonnett tells the Post. “Whether it’s time to make a decision to continue being Hannah Montana or just be a regular, ordinary girl.” (Season four premieres “in late spring,” and will air throughout 2010, Bonnett added.)

In September 2008, Cyrus squashed rumors that she was trying to get fired from the show, telling at the time, “I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It’s what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people.”

Now 17, Cyrus is leaving her show at a high point; it still averages nearly 5 million viewers a week, the Post notes. The maturing star has certainly turned heads over the past year and a half: a half-naked Vanity Fair cover, a stripper-pole performance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, a precocious tattoo and countless provocative remarks.

In fact, tween site voted Cyrus the worst celebrity influence of 2009; out of nearly 45,000 votes, Cyrus garnered 42%, beating out Britney Spears (27%) and Kanye West (19%).

But the star has plenty of other projects to keep her occupied: She headlines the Nicholas Sparks romantic film The Last Song (which premieres in April) and makes a cameo in the Sex and the City sequel, which arrives May 28. “It’s the best job I’ve ever done,” Cyrus said of her appearance in Sex. She has called her burgeoning film career “my main passion.”

I just now saw a video where montana’s buddy Nena discusses precisely how the lady got directly into the adult movie trade. Seems like as thought it’s a combination of the girl being in a vunerable time her life and being that she has been chop off from daddys funds. Not that it is good enough cause to harm his legacy. more should come out about this soon i’m positive. This is why getting together with the wrong crowd gets the incorrect outcomes in life.
