Ahh, Hannah Montana. The show that made Miley Cyrus famous and made my little sister think she too could live a double life as a famous singer and normal teenage girl.

Today marks 10-years since the first episode aired on The Disney Channel (I know!), and to celebrate the show’s stars, including Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment and Mitchel Musso, each shared some pretty cute photos and messages on Instagram.

Out of the three, Miley had the most to say, which makes sense as she was Hannah Montana. 

“@realdukeofearles understands the insanity of it all….. Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary …. To the world it’s a celebration of 10 years but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the fuck any of us are ….. There was a very long auditioning process, and many chemistry reads which really is what sold the show to the producers and channel because no matter what went on over the years (which none of you have any clue about but It was like the real world but more hormonal teenagers) our love for each other was unquestionable…. Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given …. None of it would have been possible with out every single person who ever contributed to the series …. From regulars , to special guests (and there were many magical ones @dollyparton  ) to creators, crew , directors….. I am where I am because of loyal fans that I am thankful for and of course love dearly all the new angels who support me now….. Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart! Celebrate this day with us! Get real drunk and remember #HM4EVR send pics gettinnnnn buck wild in honor of this special day! #letsplayadrinkinggame watch HM and every time someone says her name take a shot! Yiew hew!”

I think her message is actually totally spot on. Miley has never been shy about how hard things were when she was on Hannah Montana, and how she felt pressured to be this person she wasn’t, but at the end of the day she still knows it was the show that gave her this platform and helped . Good on yah, Miley. As mentioned, her co-stars also paid a special tribute to the show’s anniversary.

“Ten years ago yesterday, Hannah Montana aired on the Disney Channel. Yes, this is what 14 year olds used to look like, no teeth no worries. Thank you to everyone who stuck with us all these years, we couldn’t have done it without you, and hopefully Mitch still has his “STOP” belt buckle-because fashion. So nice to hear from both of these cutie pies this morning and I’m sure I’ll see you both soon. Big, big love. #tbt”

“When I think of family I think of you girls, thank you for always being my best and always having my back -Mitchy”

Alright, I’m feeling all cute and nostalgic. I watched a lot of Hannah Montana with my little sister and even took her to see the movie when it came out. It was the first show we enjoyed watching together, and I’ll always be grateful because it gave us this thing to bond over. (I’m 13-years older than she is, so when she was 5, TV was the way to go.) And now, if I can tear myself away from “Can’t Go Home”, maybe I’ll listen to the opening number. There’s an Orlando Bloom reference!
