Miley Cyrus sheds light on her ‘identity crisis battle’ after Hannah Montana

Miley Cyrus spills the beans on the identity crisis she developed when playing Hannah Montana in her Disney career.

She opened up on the Rock This with Allison Hagendorf podcast and admits she lost the ability to make sense of herself.

“Talk about an identity crisis,” she told the host. After all Hannah was "a character almost as often as I was myself, and actually, the concept of the show is that when you're this character, when you have this alter ego, you're valuable.”

“You've got, like, millions of fans, you're the biggest star in the world, and then the concept was that when I looked like myself, when I didn't have the wig on anymore, no one cared about me, I wasn't a star anymore."

So, that was drilled into my head. Like, without being Hannah Montana, no one cares about you. And that was the concept."

that overwhelming idea made it "really had to break” out and Bangerz was her first ever attempt to shed her Disney identity and leave it behind.

"So I really had to break that and I think that's maybe why I almost created a characterized version of myself at times. ... I never created a character where it wasn't me, but I was aware of how people saw me and I maybe played into it a little bit."
