image as Hannah Montana and what she strives to become. When she turned 17 she

went skydiving and to a tattoo shop with a writer from Rolling Stone Magazine. The

changes actually began when she filmed the comedy LOL with Demi Moore.

critics say she has copied many of her strategies. Her rebranding of herself was gradual

but she has rebuilt her image as a sex symbol. She is filling a need in the market for her

age with her image and music. The main challenge to the rebranding is will it last and

keep working over the years.
