Months after Miley Cyrus recounted her horrifying experience as a child star on the set of Hannah Montana, the "Wrecking Ball" singer/provocateur paid homage to her old TV home (with a nod to fellow former castmember Jason Earles) in an Instagram post celebrating the show's 10th anniversary. It's an earnest appreciation with a bit of cheeky humor thrown in; I especially like the part where she says Ms. Montana has been "chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard." She also suggests people celebrate the series anniversary today by playing a drinking game, which for the record sounds like a terrible, terrible idea. Here's the post, have a great Thursday:


@realdukeofearles understands the insanity of it all..... Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary .... To the world it's a celebration of 10 years but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the fuck any of us are ..... There was a very long auditioning process, and many chemistry reads which really is what sold the show to the producers and channel because no matter what went on over the years (which none of you have any clue about but It was like the real world but more hormonal teenagers) our love for each other was unquestionable.... Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given .... None of it would have been possible with out every single person who ever contributed to the series .... From regulars , to special guests (and there were many magical ones @dollyparton ????) to creators, crew , directors..... I am where I am because of loyal fans that I am thankful for and of course love dearly all the new angels who support me now..... Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart! Celebrate this day with us! Get real drunk and remember #HM4EVR ???????? send pics gettinnnnn buck wild in honor of this special day! ?????? #letsplayadrinkinggame watch HM and every time someone says her name take a shot! Yiew hew!
