Miley Cyrus On Being Hannah Montana: 'That's A Lot To Put On A Kid'

More than a decade after her infamous role on Disney's 'Hannah Montana', Miley Cyrus (photosMiley Cyrus photos) is looking back on playing the lead character.

"I liked being in the Disney universe because I didn't know anything else. I knew that I was getting to live what I wanted to do. I got to do two things that I loved. I got to act at that time and I got to be funny and I got to wear a wig and that was awesome and I got to wear a lot of sparkly things, so that was cool," she tells CBS.

Miley says she's also realized that it wasn't all fun and games.

"I think now that I'm older, now I realize that's a lot to put on a kid," admits the 24-year-old.

"It's a lot to put on a kid to have them have to go get their makeup done and also balance school and also have me dress up in a wig as a kid is a little weird—it's a little Toddlers & Tiaras."

"I definitely look back on it as a good time. I think what was hard for me was balancing everything. I think it got harder when I started touring as both — I toured as Hannah Montana and as myself."

"I think that's probably what's a little bit wrong with me now!," she laughs. "I mark that up to doing some extreme damage in my psyche as an adult person."

She then thinks back to reasons why her fans related to the series.

"I think why people loved Hannah Montana was because Hannah Montana did feel real and that's because I was under there and people forgot that sometimes."

"I loved being that character and so, that's what made people love her and honestly music is everything and all people want to have is great music. For that audience, for what that was, that was great music for kids to listen to."

"There's a song called 'Life's What You Make It' so let's make it rock—never forget that. Wise words—that's a good thing to tell kids."
