Yes, Hannah Montana Was Just Trying To Be Lizzie McGuire – Says Miley Cyrus To Hilary Duff! – Perez Hilton


The age old question has finally been answered — yes, Hannah Montana is a total copycat of Lizzie McGuire!

LOLz, OK, that obviously isn’t fair to the creators of those shows, but as far as star Miley Cyrus is concerned, her entire career — and most especially her role as an undercover pop star — can be traced back to one role model.

On Wednesday night, Miley posted another new episode of her Instagram Live show, Bright Minded, in which she chatted online with (while keeping her physical distance from) guests Reese WitherspoonBebe RexhaDua Lipa, and of course the woman who was her biggest inspiration, Hilary Duff.

Mileybird sang the praises of Hilary to her face, telling her she was “the reason that I wanted to do any of this.” She declared:

“I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11 and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt and Uggs to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and Uggs.”
