Miley Cyrus isn’t going to join the rush to remake old television shows. The Hannah Montana star doesn’t want a reboot any more than she wants to sing “Wrecking Ball” again. Billboard wrote that Miley Cyrus’ 2017 plans are all about promoting her new single, “Malibu,” with its “ever-so-slightly exhausted view of California’s beachy, clear-skied perfection.”
There are so many classic reboots on the way that no one would be surprised if Cyrus let her Disney alter-ego out to play again. Full House, Gilmore Girls, and Arrested Development, and Twin Peaks have all made the move and Will & Grace and Roseanne are on the way.
But “Malibu” has all Miley’s focus right now, and she doesn’t want to revisit the past.
There’s another reason for her decision to just say no to the trend and keep her attention on “Malibu” this year instead of satisfying nostalgic fans with another television show.
People shared that Miley doesn’t want to work too closely with her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, again. It’s not that she dislikes Cyrus senior. Billy Ray and Miley have a pretty good relationship for a celebrity father and daughter.
The problem is that Miley spent nearly every waking moment with her father during her teen and pre-teen years. As Miley’s Malibu lyrics express so hauntingly, “I always thought I would sink, so I never swam.” Cyrus senior was her father on and off-screen, at home, and as they drove back and forth on McDonald’s runs.
“It’s a lot of time to be spent with my dad. You know, my dad was my dad on the show. I have enough dad time.”
The reluctant “Wrecking Ball” singer said, “That was really hard every day…I didn’t get a school escape like most people.” The Cyrus family lived together, worked together, and when Miley got her driving license, she drove Billy Ray wherever he had to go.
As the grown-up 2017 version of herself, Miley really appreciates that Billy Ray is her “mega-mentor” but she wants an extended break from closer professional contact. At 24-years-old, she’s happy to have time for on-again-off-again fiance, Liam Hemsworth, who is the inspiration for Malibu.
Cyrus and Hemsworth recently purchased a luxury $2.5 million home in Malibu and it’s become something of a Shangri-La for the two of them. Their relationship has always been rocky, up-and-down, and unpredictable even by Hollywood standards, but it appears that Miley and Liam have reached a good place.
Miley’s “Malibu” lyrics show just how important Liam is to her and how much she’s changed from her 18-year-old twerking escaped Disney star persona.
“I never would’ve believed you, If three years ago you told me, I’d be here writing this song.”
Most of Cyrus’ fans wouldn’t have believed it either. When Miley first left Hannah Montana, she went wild. She said her antics were all about finally getting a chance to find out who she was without the shadow of her father following her everywhere. “I had just spent 10 years every day with my dad and grandma! I had to break free,” she explained.
Miley Cyrus isn’t completely against the idea of working with her famous father. With “Malibu,” she’s moved on from her wild self to a “stripped-down mellow sound, and a softer image,” and she’s ready to collaborate with dad so long as she doesn’t have to work, play, and live with him around the clock.
i'm in love with Malibu & Miley Cyrus.

Miley asked Cyrus to be her guest mentor on 2017’s season 13 of The Voice.“I asked my dad to be my mentor because I’ve loved him being my mega-mentor, so I want him to be [that] for the other kids as well,” Miley told People. She has a hidden agenda with her The Voice plans. She’s going after Blake Shelton, and the Cyrus family is forming a formidable team to give Miley the edge.
What do you think? Do you want Miley Cyrus to stay focused on “Malibu” and The Voice, or are you hoping that she’ll remake Hannah Montana?”
