There’s busy, and then there’s Miley Cyrus circa 2005 busy. As part of her new confessional “Used to Be Young” series on TikTok, the now 30-year-old singer gave fans a glimpse at the insane hours she used to work when she was just a pre-teen, back when she was on the fast track to stardom via Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana.
Looking at an old schedule from one of the many on-duty Fridays she underwent as a kid, even Cyrus was shocked to see her call time for the day: “5:30 a.m.?!” she yelled, stunned.
The musician went on to list out every single thing she did on that particular Friday, starting with hair and makeup early in the morning. “7:15 I’m on the news, 7:45 I have another live interview, 8:15 another interview, 8:45 another interview,” she continued. “9:30 to 11 a.m. meeting with editors. Back to the hotel, okay, I have to do an interview but the reporters are all fifth-grade students.”
Cyrus went on to share that the rest of her day was filled with more interviews, the last of which began at 6:15 p.m. “Then the next day starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m., when I fly home to probably go to Hannah,” she concluded. “That’s on a Saturday, and then Monday be back at work in the morning.”
Need a break just from reading all of that? So did Cyrus. “I’m a lot of things, but lazy ain’t one of them,” the singer quipped. “So, I do think this girl deserves a little endless summer vacation.”
Cyrus has been going through artifacts from all 30 years of her life, with a big focus on her Disney Channel days, to celebrate the arrival of her latest single, “Used to Be Young.” The track, released last week, is something of an unofficial epilogue closing out her Endless Summer Vacation era.
In another installment of her TikTok series, the “Flowers” reflected on one of the biggest coincidences she’s ever experienced: The Malibu house in which she recorded her 2007 non-Hannah debut album Meet Miley Cyrus would 15 years later become the home she shared with Liam Hemsworth, now her ex-husband. The former couple lived there together after Hemsworth purchased the property, previously owned by Cyrus’ producer Matthew Wilder.
The house no longer exists, though, as it notably burned down in the devastating California wildfires in November 2018. “That house had so much magic to it,” Cyrus said in her TikTok video, looking a little emotional. “It ended up really changing my life.”
