Miley Cyrus says she was done with Hannah Montana role after losing virginity: 'I can’t put the f---ing wig on again'

Miley Cyrus said she knew she had outgrown her breakout role on the Disney Channel as “Hannah Montana” after losing her virginity.

In an interview with Elle magazine published Thursday, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter and actress said she “felt ridiculous” about playing the role of a teenager who lived a secret double life as a famous pop star around the age of 18.

While Cyrus said she was done with the role at the time, she is no longer “ashamed” of it, feeling like she had finally earned enough respect as a musician.

“I feel like I’m not ashamed of that anymore. It’s pretty cool when you hear Cardi B was listening to Hannah Montana when she was in high school. That s--- makes me happy.
