We all know that Hannah Montana shot Miley Cyrus to superstar status! But now Miley is revealing that Disney underpaid her!
I just wanted to be on TV. I mean, at one point — they’ll probably kill me for saying it — I was probably the least paid person on my cast because I didn’t know any better,” Miley Cyrus, 23, admits to Elle magazine, “I was just like, ‘I want to be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it!’”
After a few season things did change. Miley explained that her mom, Tish, eventually realized “how many people take advantage of a child, so she hired smart people to protect me in that way.” Miley adds that this protection is what allowed her to be in control of the music and the work she produces today.
So it looks like once Miley got her salary under control she was able to make millions off the show and feature film. You hear this all the time from childhood stars. Hopefully others will learn from Miley talking about this. So do you feel bad that in the beginning Miley was underpaid?
