It sounds like Miley Cyrus did not actually have the best of both worlds during her Hannah Montana days.
The 22-year-old revealed in a new interview how playing the iconic Disney character gave her “body dysmorphia.”

“I was told for so long what a girl is supposed to be from being on that show,” she told the September 2015 issue of Marie Claire. “From the time I was 11, it was, ‘You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing."'

“Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup. It was like I had f------flippers,” Miley adds. “I was made to look like someone that I wasn't, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, ‘Who the f--- am I?’”

However, that did not stop her from evolving into the bob-haired, twerk queen she is today!
“I'm probably never going to be the face of a traditional beauty company unless they want a weed-smoking, liberal-ass freak,” the singer explained. “But my dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world.”
We can’t wait to see her in action as this year’s MTV Video Music Awards host on August 30!
