Miley Cyrus, born in Franklin, Tennessee, in 1992 is the daughter of famous country star Billy Ray Cyrus. Before embarking on her music career she started out at the tender age of 12 on Disney channel’s Hannah Montana.
A sure fire way to break into the celebrity world is to land a starring role on the Disney channel. This worked for the likes of Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and added to the list- our very own Miley. Her show, Hannah Montana was about her trying to live two lives whilst making it big as a pop star. Her dad also joined her on set as on-screen father and manager. Subsequently, Miley released successful series soundtrack Best Of Both Worlds in 2006 which led to a sell-out tour of the same name the next year.
Eager to shed her Disney skin, Miley released an EP called The Time of Our Lives, featuring the hit singles “Party in the U.S.A.” which has gone on to become the singer’s most successful song to date. It sold more than 5.38 million copies and earned a spot among the best-selling singles of all time. In 2010 her Hannah days were truly behind her with her new song Can’t Be Tamed.
To go with her new persona, she cut her hair, wore less clothing and switched from country star to pop sensation. Her music video for Wrecking Ball shocked fans when she swung nude from a giant wrecking ball. This may have caused controversy but also gave way for many hilarious parodies of the song bring Miley from strength to strength.

Cyrus has starred and taken part in a number of films including Lola, The Night Before, starring Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the Last Summer where she met off screen love Liam Hemsworth.
The future for Miley
