Who says that obsessing over celebrities can’t be profitable? It certainly worked out for one member of the massive Miley Cyrus fan club. As the former American Idol guest explained during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, that number one fan has been flown out to Los Angeles for a sweet gig as Miley’s personal assistant! Not bad, huh?
Despite (or perhaps, because of) her recent transformation from Disney sweetheart to We Can’t Stop rebel, Miley Cyrus has maintained a large and rather frenzied fan base. In the past, most of these fans have assumed that there’s nothing in it for themselves, but that perception may change in light of one of Miley’s recent hires. The celeb recently confessed that an “obsessed fan” had been taken on as personal assistant, explaining, “Yeah, she is actually flying out here and staying with my mom this summer, she is going to work for me for the summer.”
Miley feels that the biggest advantage of having a major fan on board is that this person can be counted on to actually keep the celebrity in the loop. She complained to Jimmy Kimmel about being the last to know about her media appearances, her touring plans…basically everything. In fact, she was completely out of the loop prior to her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel! “I didn’t know about a schedule today, I didn’t know what time I was going to be here, I didn’t even know I was going to sit on this couch and talk to you, I thought we were going to just do everything outside.”
Additionally, the new personal assistant’s understanding of YouTube and VEVO have proven a huge bonus for Miley and Co. But if YouTube expertise and rabid obsessiveness are all that are needed to score a job with Miley Cyrus, other fans are surely clamoring for a sweet gig at this very moment.
