Overview


?Miley Cyrus, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, persisted in auditioning for the Hannah Montana role, was consistently turned away but nonetheless kept picking herself up, dusting herself off and trying again. And that persistence paid off. Miley was cast as Hannah — the TV pop superstar who is trying to balance her celebrity with a normal life as Miley Stewart, thus living a secret identity along the lines of Clark Kent and Superman — and Hannah instantly connected with the television audience, which turned the character and Miley herself into a sensation. And since that debut, there have been CDs that have sold in the millions, fashion and book lines, best-selling DVDs, a concert tour that sold out literally within seconds of tickets going on sale (with one woman going so far as to spend $13,000 on a set of four tickets!), a 3-D concert movie, and a full-length feature film to come. Living the Dream tells the story of the auditions, the casting of Hannah Montana, and what was involved in creating the Stewart family. There are biographies of the principal cast members – Miley, Billy Ray, Emily Osment, Mitchel Musso, and more – and interviews with the creators of the show. There’s a look at the phenomena outside of the show: the CDs, the concert tours (including photos from fans), and the buzz on the upcoming movie. An episode guide reveals the story behind the scenes, as well as things to watch for in each episode to date, and a news diary tracks the rise of the Miley/Hannah phenomenon. Plus there’s more than a hundred full-colour photos. For the growing numbers of MIley Cyrus and Hannah Montana fans, this is a book that will make them appreciate the show and the stars even more.

Wow, people these days. People keep saying "im not gonna get this because i dont even like her." Then why are you even looking at this bio of her. Why are you thinking of people who you dislike. Just keep your mouth shut people. Btw. Miley cyrus is a great person its just she has to let go of the drugs.

For all you people out there who are thinking bad things or saying bad things about this girl or any other girl (famous or not), I am appalled. Appalled that you dont treat this person, this person who eats, who sleeps, who is a HUMAN, with the same respect as you would show to your best friend. And if THIS is the way you treat your friends: SHAME ON YOU. This is just one example of someone who had the chance to do something they love and by being rude to her and her show, you are not just putting down Miley Cyrus, but the entire cast and crew who gave her the chance to pursue her dream. So what if you didnt like it? WE DONT CARE THATS YOUR BUSINESS. Just how ashamed would you be if you were that girl or boy and you read all those nasty comments about you and your job and your life? I know it would make me feel bad that if i am really THAT bad of an actress, of a cook, of a fashion designer, of a whatever, that i should just quit! Stop pursuing MY dream for the sake of those people who CANT KEEP THEIR MOUTH SHUT ABOUT STUFF THAT HURTS OTHER PEOPLE AND MAKES THEM FEEL LIKE THEY ARENT WORTH IT IN THIS WORLD?! Do you really want to live with the fact that you made so-and-so feel inferior, quit their job, or even die because of you?! I know i wouldnt want that burden on me! So keep quiet about other peoples faults and worry about your own, because: "Nobody's Perfect." Aera:) This is just my screen name. P.S. thank you to all the good people in this world. YOU ARE LOVED? AND FOR THOSE WHO DONT THINK YOURE LOVED: YES YOU ARE. Carrots;)
