    Miley Cyrus Celebrated Hannah Montana's 13th Anniversary And It Ruined My Childhood

    This took "The Other Side of Me" to a whole new level.

    I hate to break it to you, fellow millennials/Gen Z cuspers, but yesterday marked 13 years since the first episode of Hannah Montana premiered on Disney Channel, and we're all officially old.

    Now, we all know Ms Miley Cyrus has changed pretty significantly since saying goodbye to the show that made her famous.

    But that doesn't mean she's opposed to fondly reminiscing — and she had to recognise this big Hannahversary. She posted this sweet photo on Twitter of a tiny Miley hoppin' on the plane to LAX:

    It’s the 13th anniversary of the first HM episode to air

    But over on Instagram, it was an entirely different story. First, she posted this photo showing what Hannah's reaction would have been to her performance at the 2013 VMAs.

    Sidenote: It's been six years since that performance??? Again, I'm old.

    Then we saw Hannah discovering that there were nipple pasties and an awful lot of weed in her future.

    Of course, we know Hannah is a feminist and a strong advocate for gay rights. These aren't childhood-ruining, they're just iconic.

    But then, I'm afraid to say, there's this:

    I have no words.

    It's safe to say my life will never be the same again.

    So goodbye to my childhood, and happy 13 years of Hannah Montana!
