Disney Postpones ‘Hannah Montana’ Diabetes Episode

lunes, 10 de noviembre de 2008 |

The Disney Channel usually bends over backward when it comes to anything related to its pride and joy, teen idol Miley Cyrus. E! News confirmed Saturday, however, that the season premiere of the network’s flagship sitcom, “Hannah Montana,” had been indefinitely postponed over concerns it might not treat diabetes in a serious enough light.

“No Sugar, Sugar,” an episode originally scheduled to air Nov. 2, was to introduce Cyrus co-star Mitchel Musso’s character, Oliver, as a diabetic. Though a Disney spokesperson told E! News advice from medical experts had been incorporated into the script, a strong response from concerned parents shown a preview of the finished product gave the company cold feet.

“Notwithstanding the measures we took, and based on the episode’s preview and early feedback from parents, we removed the episode from Sunday’s schedule and are now reevaluating it,” the rep said.

An installment of the show originally scheduled to air later in the season preempted the controversial piece. It was not immediately clear if Disney would reshoot all or part of “No Sugar, Sugar” or scrap it altogether.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder causing abnormally high levels of blood sugar in those with the disease. As a result, diabetics must limit their intake of foods high in sugar and, in some cases, regularly inject themselves with hormone insulin.

Miley Cyrus used to clean toilets


Hannah Montana actress Miley Cyrus used to clean toilets before becoming famous. Cyrus, who made 18.2 million dollars last year, revealed on the Tyra Banks Show that she was eleven when she worked as a cleaner at a place called 'Sparkles' and cleaned houses.

"I had one normal job and I actually liked it," US magazine quoted Miley, as saying. "I worked at this place called Sparkles Cleaning Service and I cleaned houses. I was, like, 11 ... I can scrub a toilet," she added.

Meanwhile, the '7 Things' hitmaker wants to get a Mercedes as a gift on her 16th birthday, which is few days away.

Were Miley Cyrus' new shower pics faked?

martes, 15 de julio de 2008 |

New raunchy pictures of Miley Cyrus posing in a shower have been leaked onto the internet, but there are claims that they could have been faked.

The photos show the 15-year-old star of hit US TV show Hannah Montana allegedly in the shower, wearing a long white see-through T-shirt.

In another image, Miley poses provocatively with her T-shirt tied tightly under her breasts, exposing her stomach as she pouts at the camera.

The new photographs have been posted on an internet forum, with the user claiming he was sent them by Nick Jonas, of US band The Jonas Brothers, who briefly dated Miley last year.

The internet user is also claiming he has more scandalous pictures of the multi-talented star, which he is now attempting to sell.

Some websites believed the photos were faked.

Miley, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, is no stranger to controversy.

Earlier this year, a revealing picture of her taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine showed the young star posing with just a blanket.

Following the controversial image, Miley released a statement saying: "I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed.

"I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about."

Less than a month later, new pictures of the actress were leaked onto the internet, showing her posing in a variety of risque photographs wearing lacy red underwear, after reportedly being taken from her MySpace account.
