* In one episode Hannah Montana meets the fictional president from Cory in the House, fine. But when she meets him again (and it's implied to still be the same guy since she mentioned performing for his daughter, as she did before) he's suddenly gained a race lift and is supposed to be Obama. Also he knows the Hannah secret, despite him clearly not knowing in the first episode he appeared in. Oh and the reason he's there is he uses his exectutive power to wave Miley's school registration problem. Um yeah...
** Miley saying she sang for the President's kids (and that was what Miley said "... when I sang for his kids.") was a sly ShoutOut to Miley Cyrus actually singing for Obama's kids in real life, not that ancient (by TV standards) episode. For one thing, that president from ''CoryInTheHouse'' didn't have kids, just the one daughter. And another thing, Miley didn't actually sing for her. So yeah, different President.
** There are these things called "elections." The CoryInTheHouse President was presumably elected in the Disney world in place of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. UsefulNotes/BarackObama got elected in both universes, apparently -- ours, and the Disney Universe, in which Robbie Ray was a country star (except the one time they call him Billy Ray Cyrus), and Miley Stewart is secretly Series/HannahMontana.

* There was one episode where Miley purposefully took an embarrassing photo of herself as Hannah (for a reason that I can't recall) and sold it to someone, only to freak out when she realized the photo included a necklace she'd been wearing with the word "Miley" on it. But what's the big deal with that? Even if someone noticed it, it's not like it had her last name, so the chances of the whole masquerade being ruined are very low. Worst-case scenario is, she just can't wear the necklace as Miley again, and she could always just make an appearance as Hannah and say that it belonged to a friend or something, right? It didn't seem like she should've gotten so worked up about it.

**Miley wasn't exactly a common name before Miley Cyrus got famous; it's not even Miley Cyrus's birth name (it's short for Smiley, which was her nickname growing up). A leaked photo of Hannah wearing a Miley necklace would have made it much easier to figure out the connection if anyone dug even a tiny bit.

** There's also the gross misrepresentation of the way the admissions process works--not that anyone expects {{HannahMontana}} to be accurate, but the idea that she could just ''drive down'' to Stanford/Standford, or ''any'' college or University, and ask them to reconsider is completely ludicrous. (This was especially grating to me as I was going through the admissions process myself when this episode aired, and the idea that Miley could do all that was a little insulting.)

* The episode where she tells her secret to everyone, at the end the three people are singing (which was a good gag streched too far by the way) and they say that only a very very few people knew her secret, they then list everyone. The number comes up to five individual people, and an entire town. And the movie obviously counts here and that shows that her agent (or someone that helps her with the concerts) also knows. And they left out Roxy, who also knows. So, an entire huge town and seven people outside of that town is a very very few people? Seriously?

[[WMG:Rico in "Kiss it All goodbye"]]
* In this episode Rico finally pieces it together that Hannah is really Miley. However, from a season one episode, Rico finds out about it and uses it against Miley so they can "date" among other things.
** The secret Rico used against Miley was that she still had a teddy bear, but Miley, Lilly, and Oliver think he knows that Miley is Hannah.
** But he did actually figure it out. In the episode wih Miley passing a test by singing and dancing, he says that it reminds him of someone famous, then says Hannah Monatana. But they convince him Miley's too stupid to pull it off. So yeah, he figured it out. He didn't believe it, but he figured it out.
*** However, since he didn't believe it, that doesn't really affect things. Also, that wasn't the episode where he uses it against Miley.

Let's face it: Miley's not the only celebrity who [[LemonySnicket acts as a character]] instead of herself or who [[TheResidents is very protective of her identity]]. So while I could see how in her normal life she wouldn't tell people she's Hannah, is it really all that necessary to keep it secret in her professional life? Surely she's had to sign contracts before, and contracts must use a person's legal name.

* Most of the time when she went to concerts, they tended to be relatively nearby (California, Las Vegas, Arizona, etc.). I guess that she performed farther away during weekends and such. Also, in one episode, she talks about her upcoming European tour (which she said was her first), so I assume she was probably going to that during the summer, I assume that must have been her first non-US tour as well.

\n*** Even if they didn't just think the songs were about fictional characters, the song names don't in any way tell you ''who'' her secret identity is.

** Although on a couple of occassions it's been noted they sound similar when they sing, it's been [[HandWave dismissed]] with a "nah, couldn't be" that they are one and the same. However, it would be simple enough to get Hannah's fingerprints on a glass and compare them to Miley's prints--if some amateur detective ever took a mind to--since she doesn't wear gloves. Of course this is true of [[SupermanTheatricalCartoons any superhero whose costume doesn't include gloves]].

** I don't think they ever referred to this Queen by the name "Queen Elizabeth II" or anything like that. It was just a generic queen, not THE Queen.



It's pretty obvious that the Disney company has no idea how actual musical tours work. Tours usually last a while, many times it's over a year. So, how is Miley able to tour in another country one night, and then make it back to class the next day? Kim Possible has a similar problem with her missons going on in various locations in the world, but we can suspend our disbelief because that's an ANIMATED SHOW. This is a LIVE-ACTION show we're talking about! You can't just get away with stuff like that!
