In her Bright Minded Instagram feed, Miley admitted what Hilary meant to her, how she impacted and influenced her life and professional projects, sparking a wave of emotions on the internet and shocking Hilary herself with her remarks.
Miley is your # 1 fan!
Miley opened her heart and thanked Hilary for being her source of inspiration, for teaching her to shine in the darkest moments and motivating them to be better every day.
I want to tell you that I went to a concert of yours when I was 11 years old. I wore your t-shirt and the uggs boots you always wore in the series, I was hoping you would notice me and say, ‘Look at that girl, pretty uggs !’ I don’t know what I was thinking, but I was obsessed with your shirt.
After that, I flew to Los Angeles almost immediately to be able to audition at Disney and ended up getting the role. But the only reason I wanted to do it was so I could do what you did.
I really didn’t mind being an actress or a singer. I just wanted to copy you no matter what. So I just want to thank you for inspiring me. If it hadn’t been, I wouldn’t be sitting here. You were able to enlighten me and show me how I had to.
Hilary was surprised with the statement
As a special guest and in response to the statements, Hilary was flattered and gave a subtle response:
First of all, you are very sweet. I feel like I’ve known you for a long time, you have a very bright light. I can’t even believe what you’re saying to me. It is so sweet and so kind of you.
