The rise to stardom and pop princess has been a fast one for a young Tennessee girl who goes by the name of Miley Cyrus. For Miley, it appears as though stardom was born and bred within the teen sensation since within her mother's womb. With the "one hit wonder" Billy Ray Cyrus as her father and the fact that one of country music's most famous voices and faces, Dolly Parton, is her godmother, is it any wonder that the girl knows a bit about music? As though having an incredibly promising and talented voice isn't enough, Miley Cyrus also displays an exceptional talent for writing and acting, which is delightfully apparent in her recordings, her sitcom Hannah Montana, and her full-length movie, Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Through all of of this and the rapid rise of fame, it amazingly appears as though Miley is a fairly well-rounded individual who has, thus far, managed to escape that out-of-control phase that several young teen idols have gone through these past few years. As a parent, this is a rather reassuring thing, knowing how easily young girls are affected by what they see and hear and how much they want to imitate those they idolize.
In this unauthorized story, The World According to Miley Cyrus, Miley is compared to a young Judy Garland. Though incredibly high praise, this just doesn't seem to ring true to me and seems a bit of an odd comparison. However, there is also mention of the similarities between Miley, on her sitcom Hannah Montana, and Lucille Ball. This seems, to me, an excellent comparison. I had never thought of these two as similar until it was mentioned in this video. They do share a delightful comedic talent that reaches out to grab the viewers and display some similar characteristics in their physical comedy.
