Cyrus says that spending that much time with her family at such a young age put a strain on her as she grew up. "Hannah Montana" ran on The Disney Channel from 2006 to 2011, and Cyrus started the 98 episode series when she was just a kid.
"That was really hard every day from, like, [ages] 11 to 18," she said. "I didn't get a school escape like most people. I went to work with my dad. And then I started driving my dad toward the end, when I could start driving. And then my grandma went with me every day. It was a lot of time with dad and grandma."
Cyrus added that it was no wonder why she started hanging out with rappers an twerking on stage shortly after the series ended, "That's why, as soon as I turned 18, you guys wonder why I was twerking at Juicy J shows" she said. "I had just spent 10 years every day with my dad and grandma! I had to break free."
