While arch conservatives like Rush Limbaugh thunder on about President-elect Barack Obama’s links to Hollywood (whether through his White House chief of staff’s family members or just Obama’s natural charisma), one of Hollywood’s most popular TV shows, “Hannah Montana,” wants to invite Obama’s kids to appear, MSNBC claims.
Most Miley Cyrus fans would die for a chance to meet the “Hannah Montana” star, but when your dad has just been elected President of the United States, you have a little extra pull. Eat your heart out, Rush Limbaugh.
“They probably will. The invitation is there,” Miley’s dad said. “The ‘Hannah Montana’ film comes out in April. Maybe something might happen around then. Maybe not. I don’t know… I have got to keep a secret.”
Miley Cyrus said she didn’t know if the offer had been extended yet to the White House’s new resident “Hannah Montana” fans.
“I think that would be really cool and if anything, have them visit the set,” Cyrus noted. “They could see what we do and we could hear about what they do.”
But what kind of storyline does Cyrus envision for the girls if they do appear on her show?
“They are kind of like me before I started my own career. You are kind of put in it because their dad and because of my dad… so I would want it to be normal and they could come hang out on the set with normal girls. I think that would be fun for them,” she explained.
As the Obama daughters get ready for a life in a much larger spotlight, Cyrus offered some advice on how to handle the attention when one of your parents is a superstar in their own right.
“I think, more than anything, it would be to find your own identity,” Cyrus said. “Something that makes you stand out where you can be like, ‘This is Miley and she does this.’ I think that is a cool way to be if you can have your identity away from your parents, away from a friend or brother or sister.”
