Oh, she’s just being Miley! The former Disney Channel star has never shied away from being herself, and she’s not about to start now. Everyone of course is obsessed with this new era of Miley Cyrus, and just how different it is from her style of music just a few years ago. The “Malibu” singer is embracing her country roots, and channeling her old self with her new video for “Younger Now.”
There were tons of subtle hints at her old eras that fans picked up on, and as the singer recently told MTV News, none of them were intentional. She explained, “even though I wasn't intentionally trying to reenact something I had already done, it just naturally happened, because that's a part of me too.”
One other thing fans have picked up on from the “Younger Now” new video is the similarities to Hannah Montana’s infamous “Hoedown Throwdown.” Especially in the group dance sequence, and of course social media couldn't help but make note of it.

Now that she’s no longer trying to distance herself from those Disney days, the singer can look back at her past and feel extremely happy about all she’s accomplished. She said, “now I can be proud of all the Mileys that I've ever been instead of trying to run away from the 11-year-old one or feel like I'm not Hannah Montana. I am stoked that that was a part of my life.”
“I'm not afraid of who I used to be. No one stays the same,” she added. A different tune than the one she was singing a few months ago when talking about how embarrassed she was of her “Wrecking Ball” music video. Miley is definitely right, no one stays the same and we honestly can't wait to see what this new era of hers will bring to all of our ears.
