Miley Cyrus, the pop star and actress, has shared a hilarious story about how she ditched her own movie premiere for a casual dinner at the Cheesecake Factory with her fellow Disney stars. The singer posted a TikTok video on Thursday as part of her “Used to Be Young” series, where she reminisces about her past and gives some behind-the-scenes details of her life.
The Meme-Worthy Photo
The video starts with Cyrus showing a photo of herself with Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, and Emily Osment from 2009. The photo has become a meme on the internet, where people caption it with “Be the Miley of your friend group”. The reason is that while Swift, Lovato, and Osment are all dressed up in glamorous outfits, Cyrus is wearing sweatpants, a cardigan, and bedazzled Ugg boots.
“If you guys didn’t know I was bisexual from this d— picture, I don’t know what’s wrong with you,” Cyrus joked in the video. “I mean, hello?”
The Cheesecake Factory Outing
Cyrus then explained the backstory of the photo, which was taken at the premiere of Hannah Montana: The Movie in 2009. Cyrus starred as Miley Stewart, a normal schoolgirl who had a secret identity as a famous pop star named Hannah Montana. The show was a huge hit on Disney Channel and spawned several albums, tours, and a movie.
“So, me and Emily and Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato are going to the Cheesecake Factory,” Cyrus said in the video. “These are some classy ladies.”
Cyrus said that she left the movie premiere early because she was hungry and wanted to eat at the popular restaurant chain. She also mistakenly said that the other stars had come from the Grammys, but they were actually wearing the same outfits they wore to the movie premiere.
The “Used to Be Young” Series
Cyrus has been posting videos on TikTok as part of her “Used to Be Young” series since Monday. The series celebrates the release of her new song of the same name, which is about honoring who she has been, loving who she is, and celebrating who she will become. The song is part of her upcoming album Flowers, which is expected to drop later this year.
In the videos, Cyrus shares some untold stories from her past, starting from her birth in 1992. She also reflects on her three decades of life and how she has evolved as a person and an artist. Some of the topics she has covered include her first audition for Hannah Montana, her controversial Vanity Fair photoshoot, her relationship with Liam Hemsworth, and her activism for LGBTQ+ rights.
Cyrus has also invited some of her famous friends to join her in the videos, such as Dua Lipa, Elton John, Billy Idol, Joan Jett, and Stevie Nicks. She has also interacted with some of her fans who have commented on her posts.
Cyrus has received a lot of praise and support from her followers for being honest and candid about her journey. She has also shown that she has a great sense of humor and can laugh at herself and her mistakes.
