We gave it an C-

”I’m individual/I’m not like anyone,” sings Disney Channel heroine Hannah Montana, as played by Miley Cyrus (Billy Ray’s daughter, who gets nine of the 13 cuts on the show’s soundtrack, Hannah Montana). By individualism, she means the ability to mimic Avril, Ashlee, and Britney simultaneously. The TV character leads a Superman-style double life: derivative pop star by night, undercover normal kid by day. Here, that duality results in tween-entitlement anthems about how totally awesome it is to be famous, yet go unrecognized at will — a nice fantasy for Brangelina, but a weird one to push on little girls.
