"Hi Hannah, It's been a while. 15 years to be exact. Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity," the now 28-year-old wrote on purple Hannah Montana-branded paper "Then slipped into a puke pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled HM over the [heart]. I didn't know then... that is where you would live forever. Not just in mine, but millions of people around the world.

"Although you are considered to be an 'alter ego,' in reality, there was a time in my life when you held more of my identity in your glovette than I did in my bare hands," the "Malibu" singer continued. "We had an equal exchange in which you provided a superlative amount of fame in return for the anonymity I could gift to you. But, A LOT has changed since then. You were like a rocket that flew me to the moon and never brought me back down."

Cyrus joked that she saw the cast and crew more than her own family, with the exception of her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, who played Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana’s father, Robbie Ray.

"Hannah, I hope you hear me + believe those words are true. You have all my love + utmost gratitude. Breathing life into you for those 6 years was an honor," she continued. 

"They gave me you. The greatest gift a girl could ask for, I love you Hannah Montana," Cyrus concluded the note.

Fans lost their mind when Hannah Montana replied to the note. "Nice to hear from you @Miley Cyrus. It’s only been a decade,” a new verified Hannah Montana twitter account responded. The account also shared how to create a "Rockstar ID" and sent sweet notes to former costars.

In 2019, Cyrus debuted blonde bangs reminisced of the iconic wig and joked that she would just be "Hannah forever." However, playing a character who lived a double life as a teen was not all smooth sailing.

"The concept of the show is that when you're this character, when you have this alter ego, you're valuable. You've got millions of fans, you're the biggest star in the world," Cyrus shared earlier this month on Spotify’s "Rock This with Allison Hagendorf" podcast and said it led to an "identity crisis."

"Then the concept was that when I looked like myself, when I didn't have the wig on anymore, no one cared about me. I wasn't a star anymore. That was drilled into my head: without being Hannah Montana, no one cares about you ... I really had to break that." 

Hannah Montana ran for four seasons from 2006-2011. While fans have speculated that there may be a reunion special, nothing has been confirmed.
