‘Shake It Up’ Star Bella Thorne On Being The Next Miley Cyrus: ‘It’s A Very Unfair Comparison'

For the star of Disney Channel’s new show, being called the next Miley Cyrus is quite the compliment, but the little “it” girl is nervous she doesn’t add up!

Bella Thorne has lots to smile about. She is the star of a new Disney Channel television show. Better yet, that Disney show just premiered to huge numbers (6.2 million viewers!) and she’s being dubbed “the next Miley Cyrus.” However, the 13-year-old budding starlet is not exactly comfortable with the comparisons to the reigning Disney queen.

When we spoke to Bella at the premiere of Tangled Nov. 14, she told reporters that the idea that she’s the next Miley just isn’t correct, even going as far to call it unfair.

“It’s a very unfair comparison,” the Disney darling said. “She’s such a big teen idol and I could only strive to be [as big as her].”

Well, she’s off to a great start. Her show is already a huge hit, and she was positively giddy while talking to Hollywoodlife.com about Shake it Up’s debut.

“I was so excited! Me and Zendaya were worried; we wanted a lot of people to watch it,” Bella admitted to us. “Zendaya and I and the rest of the cast are so lucky and blessed to be here now and we just really hope that everybody loves it just as much as we do.”

More than 6 million viewers? We think it’s safe to say that everybody loves it just fine. All she needs now is a teen idol boyfriend (she did reveal to us that she has a crush on Taylor Lautner!), some hit albums, and a crazy successful music tour and she’ll be on her way to Miley stardom! Good luck, Bella!

Bell doesn’t even have a nice figure.
I vote that Miley is better.

I don’t think that she will since Miley became an overnight sensation, sold out tour, millions of albums sold already, need I go on? Bella could only dream of being as successful as Miley. But who knows? Shake it Up is already a successful show but will never match Hannah Montana.

Miley was not a slut, she just wanted to be like all the other popular pop artists.

Maybe it is true that Bella Thorne is a bit inappropriate but who cares. People should just leave her alone and let her live her dreams. We shouldn’t try to compare her to other stars because that will only break her down.
