Miley Cyrus' Siblings Owe a Lot to 'Hannah Montana'
Miley Cyrus' Siblings Owe a Lot to 'Hannah Montana'
Miley Cyrus might be getting some competition on being Hannah Montana, since it seems like her little sister is settling into the role.  Even so, the 16-year-old superstar refuted rumors that she's going to be replaced anytime soon. 

Despite earlier reports that her youngest sibling, Noah, will be taking over the franchise, Miley asserted that this is not the case.  She may be getting more and more acting roles these days, but the teen sensation won't be leaving Hannah Montana yet.

“It's not true, but she'd like it.  She likes the wig (worn by Hannah Montana) a little too much.  She's turning into me slowly but surely,” Miley Cyrus exclaimed.  It's a bit early to tell if the youngest Cyrus will eventually don the Hannah Montana wardrobe permanently, but it's fairly certain she's going into the acting business too.

Noah Lindsey Cyrus, who was born on January 8, 2000, has been seen numerous times on the hit Disney Channel series.  Since 2006, she's appeared in about five episodes with small but numerous roles.  And like her older sister, she appeared in their father's sitcom, Doc, as the character Gracie Hebert.  She also landed a role in the 2008 family video Mostly Ghostly.

Though she's on her way to becoming more like her sister, it would be a nice change if Noah became famous for being herself.  Let her find her own identity, and not gain fame for simply being part of the Cyrus clan.  But a little help from Miley's popularity can go a long way, as their older brother found out.

The 20-year-old Trace Cyrus acknowledged the assistance he got from his sister, who was essential to the creation of his band, Metro Station.  On the set of Hannah Montana, he met Mason Musso, brother of series star Mitchel Musso.  Soon, Trace and Mason began to write music together and formed the highly successful Metro Station.

“It is a blessing the way it all happened through Miley,” he said in an interview with the UK's Sunday Mail. “I moved out to California with my family and was so depressed to leave all my friends back in Nashville. Then my mom introduced me to Mason at the Hannah Montana set because our siblings were on the show - and suddenly everything was cool.”

“I am happy for Miley and all her success but it is weird that I am following in my kid sister's footsteps,” Trace admitted.  He went on about how he made the band known through gigs in parties and uploading songs on MySpace, things he did without needing Miley's or their dad's help.

“It feels nice to know I did it on my own,” he added.  “When kids use their parents' success to get in the public eye, people see through it right away - it does not seem real or natural.”
