14 years later and Miley Cyrus is still living "The Best of Both Worlds."

Okay, she isn't exactly wearing the wig and performing as the iconic Hannah Montana, but Miley still has a great life. In the many years since she left Disney Channel the star's continued to deliver A+ content to fans, whether it's through new music or her new Instagram show Bright Minded: Live With Miley

Most recently, her new platform gave fans the chance to witness her reunion with the one and only Emily Osment a.k.a. Hannah Montana's bestie Lilly Truscott. Together, the former co-stars roasted the looks their wardrobe department gave them, which was mostly comprised of vests and peplum tops. Despite their jabs at the ensembles, Emily insists they were "rocking" the outfits. 

Since then, the actors have had the chance to wear more grownup outfits and while they may look the same, they're definitely not the same teens people used to watch on Disney Channel.

Hey, she's just being Miley! After splitting from longtime boyfriend, if not longtime husband Liam Hemsworth, her co-star in The Last Song she romanced Kaitlynn Carter and Cody Simpson, Miley, who dropped her latest album Plastic Hearts in late 2020, is now living the single life.
