(Apologizing for appearing in a controversial photo of her posing with slanted eyes) I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of God's ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be.
This may sound weird coming from a teenager, but I like when my dad gets a little frustrated with me or a little upset with me. There aren't a lot of dads like that in this business. Most parents with kids in the business are like "Go free, do what you want". My parents never wanted me to go all Hollywood. My mom's dad died when she was 18, and if anything ever happened to one of my parents, I'd want them to go knowing that I made them proud.
(About Hannah Montana) I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It's what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people. I'm really excited about our new season. We are making great new episodes that I can't wait for our fans to see and I'm looking forward to the "Hannah Montana" movie that will be out in the spring.
(About dating at 15) I am too much to handle right now, with all my traveling, and cameras following me everywhere. It's not an ideal situation to be dating anyone. I have guys who are good friends, but I kind of like to be the girl that nobody can get. It's a lot more attractive to be the girl where guys say, "Hey, she's cool. I'd like to be with her".
(On the false stories printed about her) There have been all kinds of crazy, false stories. I've had pregnancy rumors, I've been getting married, I've been moving away from my parents... My mom was like, "When are you going to tell me about this?".
(about her highly controversial "Vanity Fair" photo shoot in 2008) I feel so embarrassed. I hope my fans understand that along the way, I am going to make mistakes, and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen, and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone.
It's cool to know people support you!
(about her upcoming memoir) I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me. I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams.
I'm more of a casual type of chick, so I usually just wear my favorite jeans when I go out.
I probably have an earlier curfew than anyone. My mom wants to keep me really safe and my dad's not overly protective, but he's a dad no matter what.
(About making people happy) There are so many people that have come up to me during our shows and tell me: "The hour that we are watching your show is the hour that my kids are happiest and are smiling, they are laughing," and that is what I long to do.
Some people don't have a family to fall back on, like I have, and that's when something greater than even that comes in and that's faith and that's what I have for me. That's what keeps me strong.
I need more friends. It's kind of like my quest right now just to have more true friends.
I do love meeting fans, but sometimes, when I look horrible and see people, I'm like, "Oh no, they're going to be scarred for life. They're never going to look at me the same way!" But it's still fun meeting new people.
I've got high standards when it comes to boys. As my dad says, all girls should! I'm from the South--Tennessee, to be exact--and down there, we're all about southern hospitality. I know that if I like a guy, he better be nice, and above all, my dad has to approve of him!
