Hannah Montana: New Single by Miley Cyrus Leaked

Miley Cyrus might have enough power over her millions of fans, but she can't control them from being a bit overenthusiastic about her music. A new single from the Hannah Montana star was apparently leaked online, when it was supposed to premiere on Monday. MTV News reports that "Party in the USA" was ready to appear on an upcoming exclusive Wal-Mart EP, debuting along with Miley's Max Azria clothing line. According to Idolator, the song that was leaked was a demo version. In the original one, the singer mentions stars like Jay-Z and Britney Spears in the lyrics. As for the subsequent version of "Party in the USA," the name of Jay-Z was replaced with that of Kanye West. Also, the New York Post's PopWrap has reported that the single is sort of this upbeat, semiautobiographical track. It revolves around Miley's move from Tennessee to Los Angeles, which many fans would be excited to hear about. Unfortunately, one thing we won't be hearing about is a statement from the Hannah Montana star's reps. Her label, Hollywood Records, wasn't able to comment on the issue of the leaked song. Then again, they're probably busy setting things up for the debut of her clothing line. This August marks the launch of Miley Cyrus' fashion line in Wal-Mart stores. The 16-year-old teen sensation even posted pictures of it on her Twitter page, thrilled about the news. "So excited about Miley and Max :) yayy!" she wrote. Meanwhile, she took the reports about her leaked single "Party in the USA" lightly. What was more important to her is the response of the audience to it. "How did my friggen song get leaked???" she Tweeted to Perez Hilton. "Whatevs. Do you likey?" For those who want to have a listen to the song, head over to PopWrap's post here. We're sure Miley wouldn't mind, since whatever she produces causes those rabid fans to go crazy. Plus, the actual release date's only a weekend away anyway. Source Here

High School Musical: Zac Efron to Accompany Miley Cyrus in 'Gidget' Remake?

Apparently, Miley Cyrus' little crush on High School Musical star Zac Efron has led to something even bigger. While she's not exactly making any moves on him, the two have been slated for roles in the upcoming remake of the classic film series Gidget. Moviehole reports that the Hannah Montana tween sensation will be portraying the role that catapulted Sally Field to fame. With the movie being a musical comedy, there's no doubt they're going to need Miley Cyrus' pipes to pull it off. Efron has reportedly been approached to be her leading man, but there hasn't been any confirmation from the actor. The reboot of Gidget will supposedly be the first for a long line of films, and is about a young girl who discovers a passion for surfing. Along the way, she ends up falling for a guy on that one fateful summer. As one of the first "beach movies" back in the day, Gidget was originally a 1959 film starring Sandra Dee. It became quite a hit, spawning several sequels and TV movies. The ABC television series with Sally Field in the title role aired in 1965, but was canceled after one season. Zac Efron will most likely play a modern day version of singer and actor Frankie Avalon (who performed on American Idol last April), though it's something he might not go for. Given his recent choices in acting gigs like turning down Footloose for more serious roles, it's doubtful he'll jump at the chance for a part in Gidget. Miley Cyrus might be able to fill in the shoes for the quirky character, even though Zac Efron won't be so interested. He's certainly busy with other projects, currently filming the 2010 drama The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. Another actress who has been picked for a role is Brittany Snow, but, like Efron, she hasn't commented on the news. Source Here

Miley Cyrus Flies from 'Hannah Montana' to Batgirl?

Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus might have bagged the lead role in Wings, but rumor has it that she'll be donning a different pair of flyers sometime soon. It's been reported that Warner Bros. executives are considering her for a role in the sequel to The Dark Knight . Hollyscoop reveals that the 16-year-old Disney princess had already auditioned for the role of Batgirl. An insider said that she "stunned" producers, impressing them by dressing up in a full batsuit. That's certainly a huge leap for her, if she manages to seal the deal. The source went on to discuss Miley's audition, saying "She was sort of hopping around the room and had even written some dialogue for herself. The problem is, some people aren't really convinced Miley has the acting chops to pull it off." Frankly, we think so too. Miley Cyrus may be leaving her Hannah Montana past behind with more "grown-up" roles, but a foray into the Batman franchise doesn't seem to be appropriate. Her mom and manager, Tish Cyrus, isn't exactly the type who'd be ecstatic at letting her daughter wear a batsuit to auditions. Furthermore, it's really difficult to picture her right beside Christian Bale. The Dark Knight, featuring Miley Cyrus - there is just something very wrong with the idea. As for stunning the Warner Bros. producers, they were probably just shocked at her performance. Who wouldn't be surprised to see this teen sensation hopping like a bunny and trying out for a movie such as this? When asked to comment, the popstar's representatives kept mum about the news. They haven't responded to requests for information, which is just as well. Perhaps it's best to just keep the girl busy with filming The Last Song for now. Again, the rumors are too far-fetched to be true, especially with Miley Cyrus' schedule packed with her other endeavors. Source Here

'Hannah Montana' Star Emily Osment Sets Dates for New Album

With music prevalent in the world of Hannah Montana , there's no doubt its stars will jump right into that industry as well. Emily Osment, the 17-year-old actress who plays the title character's best friend on the series, is certainly following that path. First there was co-star Miley Cyrus, then co-star Mitchel Musso, and now it's her turn. USA Today reports that Osment's still-untitled debut album will be released in March next year. She co-wrote all the songs that will be featured, and is currently recording them for the album's launch. It will be produced by Matt Squire, known for backing up bands such as Taking Back Sunday, Panic at the Disco, and Boys Like Girls. Obviously, Emily Osment is going for a darker sound in her songs. She describes the tunes as "definitely pop, but with an alternative-rock edge. It's music you'll want to play in the car with the windows rolled down." What's more, she collaborated with Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T's, along with Eve 6's Max Collins and Tony Fagenson. The latter two helped out in the track called "All the Way Up," which is set to premiere this August on Radio Disney and online. The Hannah Montana starlet has already shot the video for the song, with her friends from the band Push Play appearing on it as well. It's also been confirmed that Emily Osment has signed up with Wind-Up Records for the effort. "I am so excited I am getting the chance to finally share my music with everyone," Emily Osment said of the partnership. "I have been playing guitar and writing songs since I was little so it seems like this album has been in process for years. The opportunities and amazing people I have been so fortunate to work with have literally been a dream come true. I can't wait for all of my very patient fans to hear the music that's been such a huge part of my life for the past two years." Source here

Cody Linley Heads Back to 'Hannah Montana'

Jake Ryan returns on a special episode of Hannah Montana , and actor Cody Linley is as ecstatic as his fans. The upcoming installment "He Could Be the One" is going to be yet another milestone in his career, as well as for the Disney Channel series. On the one-hour episode, Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus) and Jake (Cody Linley) are dating once again and she's finding it difficult to tell her father, Robby (Billy Ray Cyrus). She tries and tries to reveal this secret, and soon the dad suspects that she's hiding something. She later pretends to date her male bandmate Jesse (Drew Roy), whose bad-boy attitude isn't really approved of. Miley has to find a way to fix her relationships before it's too late. The 19-year-old Cody Linley prepped up for his appearance on the show, and recently discussed the projects he's involved in lately. He was interviewed by Just, talking about his new music and other plans he has for his career. "I've written over 50 solid songs, and right now I'm just in the process of narrowing them down and deciding what I want to release," Linley admitted. He's been quite the scene-stealer ever since he appeared on Hannah Montana, earning a spot on Dancing with the Stars and even worked on his own album. "I take being an artist seriously, and I don't want to release anything prematurely," he said. "We haven't released anything lately but yes, music is a huge part of my life. Songs that I've written all over the world this year will definitely be coming out, and I want to produce it with some of my close friends like Aaron Carter and some other producers." He continued by saying "I'm just really trying to find a way to do it independently because I want to bring my true funk sound, and that would be a kind of acoustic soul mixed with funk." There's also the recurrence of Jake Ryan's alter ego Meelosh on Hannah Montana. "The character Meelosh was actually created by me. I went up to the writers room and they asked me if I could do any special accents, and it was right around the time Borat was coming out," Cody Linley revealed. "I guess Meelosh was Jake Ryan's attempt at hiding, he's kind of like Lola for Emily Osment's character. He dyed his hair black and wore goofy clothes just to disguise himself." Source Here
