LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Most Miley Cyrus fans would die for a chance to meet the “Hannah Montana” star – but when your dad has just been elected President of the United States, you have a little extra pull.
In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell, Billy Ray Cyrus said “Hannah” might get a visit from future first daughters Malia and Sasha Obama.
“They probably will. The invitation is there,” Miley’s dad told Nancy of a possible visit by the Obama daughters. “The ‘Hannah Montana’ film comes out in April. Maybe something might happen around then. Maybe not. I don’t know… I have got to keep a secret.”
When Nancy followed up with Miley, on the set of her new music video for “Fly On The Wall,” the Disney star said she didn’t know if the offer had been extended yet to the White House’s new resident “Hannah Montana” fans.
“I think that would be really cool and if anything, have them visit the set,” Miley noted. ”They could see what we do and we could hear about what they do.”
When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for the Disney Channel said they would welcome Malia and Sasha with open arms.
“We’re pleased that Malia and Sasha are fans and, as long as their parents say it’s OK, they are invited to the set of ‘Hannah Montana’ and all Disney Channel shows, for a guest role or a visit, anytime,” the rep told Access.
But what kind of storyline does Miley envision for the girls if they do appear on her show?
“They are kind of like me before I started my own career. You are kind of put in it because their dad and because of my dad… so I would want it to be normal and they could come hang out on the set with normal girls. I think that would be fun for them,” she explained.
And as Malia and Sasha get ready for a life in a much larger spotlight, Miley offered some advice on how to handle the attention when one of your parents is a superstar in their own right.
“I think, more than anything, it would be to find your own identity,” Miley continued. “Something that makes you stand out where you can be like, ‘This is Miley and she does this.’ I think that is a cool way to be if you can have your identity away from your parents, away from a friend or brother or sister.”
