I like Hannah better than Miley

October 8, 2013

I have a confession to make. I have sat down several times and watched “Hannah Montana” when it was on the Disney Channel with my grandchildren. Now, every time I read a magazine or turn on the Internet, I am greeted with several things about the show's star, Miley Cyrus, that makes me disappointed. For example, she is getting new tattoos. Last week, it showed her getting the soles of her feet inked. Or, she is taking off her clothes and posing naked. She said that she was born to be wild.
I like Hannah better than I do Miley.
