Say it ain’t so, Miley! The sexy singer used her ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting gig on Oct. 5 to let us all know what’s going on with her alter-ego Hannah Montana — and the news was NOT good!
Miley Cyrus has gone to a lot of trouble to prove that she isn’t that child Disney star we used to know — stripping down at the VMAs, riding a wrecking ball naked, and of course twerking — but during her host monologue on Saturday Night Live on Oct. 5, Miley revealed that she’s actually had to resort to VERY extreme measures to get rid of Hannah Montana.
Miley Cyrus: Is Hannah Montana Dead?
After insisting that there would be no twerking on the show (because now that white people are doing it, it’s not cool), Miley gave the update on Hannah Montana’s whereabouts.
“I’m not gonna do Hannah Montana, but I can give you an update on what she’s been up to — she was murdered.”
Now, clearly Miley was joking — Hannah Montana is a fictional character that can’t really be killed — but we love how symbolic and true the wisecrack was. If you think about, Hannah Montana has been murdered, at least in a figurative sense, by Miley Cyrus! Twerking on a foam finger at the VMAs was pretty much like stabbing Hannah Montana in the heart.
Miley Cyrus’ Big Night On ‘SNL’
With her Disney days officially behind her, Miley had an extremely successful night as the host and musical guest of SNL.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer had a couple of great performances on the live stage and a few huge highlights as host, like becoming a sexy Michele Bachmann in a government shutdown parody called “We Did Stop,” and stripping down and being the perfect girlfriend for a funny failed sex tape.
It’s sad to see Hannah Montana go, but Miley is proving that this phase of her career is just as compelling. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
