The Evolution Of Hannah Montana

The Evolution Of Hannah Montana

Nobody's perfect.

Nothing makes you feel older than finding out the show that defined your childhood aired for the first time 10 years ago. I remember sitting at a cafeteria table with my fifth grade clique talking about how terrible "Hannah Montana" was going to be but then being obsessed the next day. Miley Cyrus is most definitely not the person she once was, but the memory of the old Miley will always have a place in our hearts.

Series premiere

This is when we met and officially fell in love with Miley/Hannah. With the quirky family and friends, the crazy drama no real person dealt with and the amazing Hannah closet, it's understandable why every tween girl was instantly obsessed

Later in the season is the introduction of Jake Ryan, the heartthrob we all had a huge crush on. If you don't think their kiss was the most dramatic scene of your tween life, you're lying to yourself.

Season two

At this point, we knew all the songs, owned the CDs and were fully committed to watching every week. The season was full of love interests, a lot of fights between Lilly and Miley and more guest stars than we even remember — everyone remembers the episode with the Jonas Brothers.

Season three

This is the season where Hannah claims to hate carrots and then has to dress up as one, starts acting in movies and Lilly and Oliver start dating. Also, Hannah got bangs and doesn't look like an awkward middle schooler anymore, even though most of her fan base consisted of just that.

Miley starts dating Jake again but then falls in love with the "bad boy" Jesse and writes that really catchy song about the situation. The season ends with Miley missing Tennessee and considering leaving the rockstar life behind. Instead, Robby Ray brings her horse to her and buys a new house (read: mansion) to make Miley feel more at home.

"Hannah Montana: The Movie"

At this point, I stopped watching "Hannah Montana" regularly (I thought I was too cool), but when the movie came out, I shamelessly admit I saw it. Basically, Hannah was becoming a brat and went back to Tennessee to "find herself" again and, in the process, finds a pretty hot guy and writes a few hit songs. The movie plot didn't really go along with what was happening in the show, but it was the start of the downward spiral of everyone knowing the secret.

Season four

The Stewart family moves into their new ranch, and Miley and Jake break up for good. Miley starts dating Jesse, and he tells her he knows her secret. This prompts Hannah to reveal her secret to the whole world on Jay Leno's show.

Miley goes on to live her life, graduates high school, gets into college and then is offered a role in a movie that would take her away from home for a year. She almost convinces Lilly to come with her but, last minute, Lilly changes her mind. The final episode ends with Miley showing up in Lilly's dorm introducing herself as her new roommate and then a montage of pictures from the past four seasons ends it all. *Cue tears*

Even though Miley has left this part of her life behind for good, Hannah will always be in our hearts, and the soundtracks will always be on Spotify.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
