Great news for Miley Cyrus today … she has managed to secure the management services of Larry Rudolph, the man who is credited with helping our dear Britney Spears reach the heights of superstardom. As you may know, Larry keeps his client list very small so that he can give his attention to the people he works with in order to maximize their success, so he doesn’t take on many new clients at all. It was rumored a few years ago that he was approached to manage Lindsay Lohan (after her career had fallen off but before her personal problems got really, really bad) but he wisely decided to stay away from that mess. E! News is reporting that Larry and Miley worked out a deal so that she will benefit from his management skills … which can only help her career from here on out.
Miley Cyrus is taking her post-Disney musical comeback very seriously. E! News has exclusively learned that Miley has signed on with veteran music manager Larry Rudolph, the man widely credited with resuscitating Britney Spears’ career.
Sidenote: I don’t think it’s true that Larry “resurrected” Britney‘s career. In fact, I would argue that her career never needed resurrecting at all (even thru her darker period). Larry was with Britney at the beginning of her career and the pair started working together again after her bit of downtime in 2007 and have been together ever since. He’s just been a great manager for Britney for most of her career. But, I digress …
The news comes a little over a month after Cyrus partnered with RCA Records to distribute her highly anticipated new album. “Larry has the track record to handle an international pop star like Miley,” says a source with knowledge of the management shift. (Miley was managed by Jason Morey throughout her Disney years.) We’re also hearing that the star’s mom, Tish Cyrus, will remain her daughter’s co-manager. Miley’s rep couldn’t be reached for comment.
OY! Here’s hoping that Tish Cyrus is smart enough to stay out of the way and let Larry do his thing … because the man is really good at what he does. I’d say Miley‘s career is in in very good hands now, lucky her.
