Miley Cyrus Biography

Cyrus focused on her acting career with several television and film appearances in 2011 and 2012. Her sexually explicit behavior generated widespread controversy while promoting her fourth album Bangerz (2013), her first under her recording contract with RCA Records. Cyrus’ independently-released fifth studio album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz (2015) deviated from her traditional pop style for more psychedelic experimentation.

 

Cyrus has had five number-one records on the U.S. Billboard 200 with Meet Miley Cyrus, Breakout, and Bangerz, and the soundtracks Hannah Montana in 2006 and Hannah Montana: The Movie in 2009. She has logged seven top 10 entries on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 with “See You Again”, “7 Things”, “The Climb”, “Party in the U.S.A.”, “Can’t Be Tamed”, “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball”.

 

Cyrus’ catalog has earned numerous awards and nominations. Cyrus ranked number thirteen on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 in 2010, and in 2013 was declared “Artist of the Year” by MTV.

 

Cyrus was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville, to Letitia Jean “Tish” (Finley) Cyrus and country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. She grew up on a 500-acre (200 ha) farm in Franklin. Her birth name, Destiny Hope, was derived from her parents’ belief that she would accomplish great things, and she was given the nickname “Smiley”, later shortened to “Miley”, because she often smiled as an infant.  She officially changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus in 2008; her middle name honors her paternal grandfather, Democratic politician Ronald Ray Cyrus, to whom she remained close until his death in 2006.

 

Cyrus attended Heritage Elementary School. She was raised Christian and was baptized in a Southern Baptist church prior to moving to Hollywood in 2005.

At age 11, Cyrus learned of the casting for what became Hannah Montana, a Disney Channel children’s television series about a schoolgirl with a secret double life as a teen pop star.

 

TIME magazine reports that Cyrus’s “phenomenal” success is due partially to her talent and partially to “Disney learning to use its vast, multimedia holdings” and market Cyrus and Hannah Montana appropriately. Cyrus eventually became the first artist to have deals in television, film, consumer products, and music within The Walt Disney Company.

During the fall of 2007, the Best of Both Worlds Tour was launched to promote the joint album. With the Jonas Brothers, Aly & AJ, and Everlife as her opening acts, Cyrus toured from October 17, 2007, to January 31, 2008, with stops in the United States and Canada.  Tickets sold out in minutes and were scalped for up to $2,500 and an average of $214, well above their $26–$65 face value.

 

In April 2008, several provocative images of Cyrus in her underwear and swimsuit were leaked by a teenage hacker who accessed her Gmail account. Cyrus described the images as “silly, inappropriate shots” and stated, “I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone.

 

At the age of sixteen, she became the youngest artist to have four number-one albums on the charts. On July 22, 2008, Cyrus released her second studio album Breakout, which she said was inspired by “what’s been going on in my life in the past year.

Shortly afterwards, Cyrus launched the third Hannah Montana soundtrack, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 137,000 copies;  its single “He Could Be the One” entered the Top 10 of the Hot 100. In March 2009, Cyrus published Miles to Go, a memoir co-written by Hilary Liftin chronicling her life through age sixteen.

 

Cyrus began transitioning into an adult image in late 2008, when her representatives negotiated a deal for novelist Nicholas Sparks to write the screenplay and novel basis for a film that would serve as a star vehicle for Cyrus by introducing her to audiences older than the young fans she had gained through Hannah Montana.

 

Following the release of Can’t Be Tamed, Cyrus confirmed she would be taking a break from her music career, opting rather to focus on acting.
