Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus, 23.1.1992) Miley Ray Cyrus is an American actress and singer, best known for appearing as Miley Stewart / Hannah Montana in the Disney series, Hannah Montana. Her father is Billy Ray Cyrus.
Net worth: Miley Cyrus has earnings of $36 million (Forbes 2014)
Childhood: Miley was born and raised in Franklin, Tennessee. Her father is the country singer, Billy Ray Cyrus and her mother is Leticia. Miley has a younger brother, Braison and a younger sister, Noah (who is also an actress). She also has two half-brothers, Trace and Christopher Cody as well as a half-sister Brandi.
'Miley' is not her birth name, but a nickname, given to her by father because she was always smiling as a child. Miley originally attended Heritage Middle School but now has a private tutor, so that she can keep up with her studies whilst pursuing her career. Miley first showed an interest in acting aged nine, whilst the family was living in Canada. She first appeared on screen as a guest star in her father's TV show, Doc.
Career: Miley Cyrus' first film role was credited to her birth name, Destiny Cyrus. She appeared alongside Helena Bonham Carter and Ewan McGregor in Tim Burton's Big Fish, as 'Young Ruthie', in 2003. Aged 12, Cyrus auditioned for the lead role in Disney's Hannah Montana but the casting directors decided that she was too small. However, Miley was so persistent that she wanted the role, that Disney gave her a callback. Gary Marsh, a Disney Channel Executive described Miley as having the "everyday relatability of Hillary Duff and the stage presence of Shania Twain."
Miley eventually gained the lead role, playing Miley Stewart. Hannah Montana is Stewart's pop star alter ego. Cyrus also briefly appeared in the film High School Musical 2. Her role was officially credited as 'Girl At Pool'. She appears at the end of the film, dancing by the poolside. At the 80th Academy Awards, Cyrus was asked to present the song from Enchanted, 'That's How You Know.'
In April 2008, she appeared on Idol Gives Back, a fundraising offshoot of the hugely popular American Idol show. In 2006, Disney released a soundtrack to the Hannah Montana series, with Cyrus performing on the album. The singer has also signed a four-album deal with Hollywood Records; a separate deal to the soundtrack releases. Miley toured with The Cheetah Girls, opening the show for 20 dates of the tour of 39 cities.
Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus was released in 2007. The double-disc album was half Hannah Montana soundtrack songs and completed by a disc of songs largely written by Cyrus herself, credited to Destiny Hope Cyrus. In the Best Of Both Worlds Tour, later that year, she performed both as herself and in the Hannah Montana character.
A Disney 3-D Digital film of the tour was released and grossed $31,117,834 in its opening weekend. In 2008, a series of semi-naked shots of Miley leaked which appeared to dramatically increase her sales, and in 2009 she was named youngest artist to have had four number one albums. 2008 also saw her release her second studio album 'Breakout' which was later certified Platinum. The lead single was '7 Things'. That year she voiced Penny in the animated movie 'Bolt'.
In 2009, she appeared in 'Hannah Montana: The Movie', the soundtrack for which featured her top 40 hit 'The Climb'. That year she also featured on the Stand Up to Cancer campaign single 'Just Stand Up!'. Miley's next album was 'The Time of Our Lives' which she promoted with her Wonder World Tour.
She even performed for the Queen of England at the Royal Variety Performance. In 2009, she appeared in the poorly reviewed romance movie 'The Last Song' opposite Liam Hemsworth. The following year saw the release of her third album 'Can't Be Tamed', before Miley announced she wanted to take a break. She appeared in 'LOL' opposite Demi Moore in 2012 which was another flop, as was comedy 'So Undercover'.
In 2013, following a drastic change in image, she released her album 'Bangerz' featuring the hits 'We Can't Stop' and number one 'Wrecking Ball'. She promoted the record with a world tour (which was interrupted by an unexpected hospital stay) during which she shocked many attendees with her revealing outfits and racy conduct on stage. She subsequently appeared on a variety of songs from other musicians including Snoop Lion's 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks', will.i.am's 'Fall Down' and Lil Twist's 'Twerk'. 2013 also saw her play a successful acoustic show for MTV Unplugged which became their highest rated episode.
Personal life: Miley Cyrus dated Nick Jonas for just over a year between 2006 and 2007, and had a relationship with Justin Gaston in 2009. That year she began dating actor Liam Hemsworth who she became engaged to in 2012. The following year, however, it was announced that they had split.
Miley caused quite a stir in 2012 when she decided to cut her long hair into a pixie crop. The move was the start of a series of controversial antics that the singer embarked on to cement herself as more of an adult artist. She was born with a heart problem called tachycardia, relating to an abnormally fast heart rate.
She was hospitalised in 2014 after suffering an allergic reaction to some medication she was taking for a sinus infection. Miley is a Christian and a strong supporter of LGBT rights. She is open about her use of the drug cannabis and even caused controversy by lighting up a joint on her way to accept an award at an awards ceremony in the Netherlands.
Katy Perry also hit the campaign trail for Clinton over the weekend.
The singer has been a vocal campaigner for Democratic candidate Clinton through the election, but as November 8 draws closer Cyrus has taken her message on the road.

Cyrus, who is engaged once again to Liam Hemsworth, was interviewed by Variety.
Three years after she surprised the world with her dramatic stylistic reinvention, Miley Cyrus has opened up about her journey to discovering her pansexuality and her role within the LGBTQ community in a new interview with Variety.
The 23 year old former Disney star and current coach on ‘The Voice’ was named as one of Variety’s Power of Women cover stars in its latest issue, and revealed that she struggled for many years with her sexuality.
“My whole life, I didn't understand my own gender and my own sexuality. I always hated the word 'bisexual,' because that's even putting me in a box. I don't ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl,” she explained.

Nick Jonas' sex life has ''dramatically'' changed his music and made his work more successful.
Nick Jonas' sex life has ''dramatically'' changed his music and made his work more successful.
The 24-year-old singer - who wore a purity ring with his brothers in his younger days as a Disney star - has admitted his sexual encounters are ''important'' for him and his music because they have led him to become a better songwriter as he can sing about his experiences with ''more reality''.
Speaking about his hit tracks to Wonderland magazine, the dark-haired hunk said: ''Any time I approach writing a song I think about the fact that since I started having sex my creative life changed dramatically, and my ability to write a song with more genuine depth, more reality.

Miley tells fans she prepared for the role by even kissing a girl backstage
Miley Cyrus can add talk show host to her growing repertoire after filling in for Ellen Degeneres when the star was too sick to front The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday. The singing starlet took over the hot seat and promoted herself to the audience as someone ready to fill in Ellen’s shoes.
Miley Cyrus helped out Ellen DeGeneres when she wasn't feeling too well
Announcing the new host on Twitter, DeGeneres wrote: "The bad news is I’m sick & can’t tape my show today. The good news is @MileyCyrus dropped everything to host for me. Thanks, Miley!"
Cyrus, 23, starred in Disney's 'Hannah Montana' for five years between 2006 and 2011.
It was the TV show that made her the most famous teenager in the world for years, but Miley Cyrus believes she might have been the most underpaid person on ‘Hannah Montana’ – at least when she first landed the role.
The 23 year old singer, who’s engaged to marry actor Liam Hemsworth, opened up about the start of her superstardom in a new interview with Elle magazine. Speaking about her five years on the Disney show, from 2006 to 2011, she said that she was rather naïve when she started at the age of 13.
“I did not grow up spoiled in any way. I just wanted to be on TV. I mean, at one point—they'll probably kill me for saying it - I was probably the least paid person on my cast because I didn't know any better,” the actress remembers. “I was just like, 'I can be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it!'”

The popstar insists fame is a lot like 'Zoolander'.
It's been three years since Miley Cyrus killed Hannah Montana. She became an all-you-can-eat buffet for the press, gyrating on Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV VMAs, smoking weed on stage in Amsterdam and flashing more and more flesh. In recent months though, she's unveiled a more tender side to her. One that doesn't thrive in the glare of media attention.
Miley Cyrus doesn't want to do red carpet events anymore
These days, Miley Cyrus is being less and less controversial, merely focusing on her music, her philanthropy and her relationship. Since Miley disappeared from the spotlight, she's reunited with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, released an album based on her dead pets ('Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz') and launched the Happy Hippie Foundation. Fame has become less of a crutch for this transformed popstar, and more of an unfortunate (and often unwelcome) tag - so much so that we won't ever see her on a red carpet again, so she says.

Miley Cyrus waxwork - Fans of provocative singer, songwriter and social media force, Miley Cyrus, had plenty to Instagram last night as Madame Tussauds London launched a brand new wax figure of the star, in spectacular show-stopping style. Plus over the Easter holidays, fans can grab a selfie stick for a perfect #tonguefie with the superstar - measuring up to Miley in the 'tongue' stakes with special tongue rulers for a chance to WIN a prize*. From today, guests can visit Miley's likeness as she sits seemingly just about to whizz down a neon-pink, tongue-shaped slide, created in homage to her recent sell-out The Bangerz Tour. The flamboyant slide ensures the superstar songstress is well and truly in the spotlight in the world famous attraction's Music area. Miley's figure rocks a typically cheeky look with cropped blonde hair and a bejewelled red and white checked outfit, adorned with look-at-me feather-embellished jacket. Her hands are aloft in performance-ready pose and the figure of course bears her most famous expression - the trademark tongue-out smile. Fans joined Miley Cyrus' figure on stage and were quick to give the wax likeness their 'smiler' seal of approval. Megan Whiteside, aged 16, from Horsham commented: "I was so shocked to see her, she is so beautiful and really lifelike. It really does her justice!" Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London, added: "Miley Cyrus' stage shows are cheeky, wild and fun, and we wanted to bring a 'taste' of this into the Madame Tussauds London for her fans over Easter - with a giant tongue slide for her to sit on! The feel of Miley's set is inspired by her sell-out The Bangerz Tour and we've created her with that trademark sticking out tongue - we're sure our guests will have a ball with her over Easter". Miley's figure joins other female superstars such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Madonna in Madame Tussauds London's Music area.
