Biography

International pop culture phenomenon Miley Cyrus rocketed to fame almost instantly after being added to the Disney Channel's stable of wholesome teenage entertainers in 2006. As "Hannah Montana" (2006-2010), Cyrus won over tween audiences by playing a perky and charming middle-school student who happens to lead a secret double life as a pop singer. While the premise was the definition of hokey TV fabrications, it was actually not too far removed from Cyrus' own life as a decidedly normal young girl from Tennessee, who also happened to be the daughter of 1990s country music chart-topper, Billy Ray Cyrus. Upon the success of her fictitious pop singer persona, Cyrus naturally launched her own lucrative singing career - to say nothing of the successful "Montana"-based feature films and the Disney avalanche of cross-promotional items - all of which secured her status as one of the most popular entertainers of her generation. Some of her more provocative antics following the end of "Hannah Montana" -- most notoriously a performance with pop-R&B singer Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards that introduced the word "twerking" to mainstream pop culture -- made Cyrus a controversial figure, but the tabloid furor only seemed to make her a more daring performer.

Bonus Trivia

.

Her birth name was Destiny Hope Cyrus because her parents thought that she would achieve great things, but she was such a happy baby her father gave her the nickname "Smiley," later shortened to Miley.

.

Cyrus first auditioned for Disney when she was only 11, but she did not get the part because executives thought she was too young.

.

She worked hard to lose her southern accent only to have Disney request that she speak in a southern drawl on "Hannah Montana."

.

She promised her parents that she would live at home until she was 20. In exchange, her parent’s gave her a small section of their house with a bedroom and separate seating area for her to "chill out."

.

Cyrus to Vanity Fair magazine on whether or not she was anxious taking the now infamous Annie Leibovitz photos: "No, I mean I had a big blanket on. And I thought, this looks pretty, and really natural. I think it's really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way. Annie took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool. That's what she wanted me to do, and you can't say no to Annie. She's so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you're like, O.K." – from Vanity Fair, June 2008

.

Cyrus on the famous Vanity Fair photos: "I was embarrassed…but also it’s like, every career thing that I do can’t be perfect, and sometimes my decisions are wrong. I think that just makes me even more relatable. I don’t think people will look at me any differently because they’re like,’You know what, I’m going to do stupid stuff too, and I’m going to make mistakes, and that’s fine.’ It still hurts when I think about it." – from Billboard magazine, July 2008
