Miley Cyrus established herself with a bold and sexy personality, but before she reached that peak, she’s known for her sweet and attractive persona, the pre-teen icon, Hannah Montana.
Miley Ray Cyrus, known initially as Destiny Hope Cyrus, is an American teenage icon turned singer, who’s famous for her portrayal on the hit TV show, Hannah Montana. Her pop star role lasted for almost five years, which cemented her acting career and fueled her other passion for singing.
Miley’s father, the renowned country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, is initially against Miley’s interest in pursuing a show business career. However, we still get to see Miley’s debut on her father’s TV show, Doc.
Miley’s childhood personality is instead the opposite of what she is when she made her transition. She also earned the nickname “Smiley Miley” because of her youthful and energetic appearance.
After her TV debut, she landed another role in a film titled Big Fish, which premiered in 2003.
Miley gets her first lead role in 2005 when she successfully passed the audition for Disney’s classic TV sensation, Hannah Montana.
The show was a worldwide hit, and it quickly turned Miley to a versatile actress with millions of fans around the world. Following the series’ success, a soundtrack album came to life, boasting more than three million copies sold. A follow-up album made its way in 2007 titled Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus.
Her appeal to the youth audience as Hannah Montana never stopped because of another project in 2009, which is a movie adaptation of the series.
Miley kept on producing soundtracks for the show until it ended in 2011. She also released an EP, The Time of Our Lives in 2009, and an album, Can’t Be Tamed in 2010, while still having the Hannah Montana persona under her name.
After the show’s end, Miley focused more on establishing her music career. In this era, Miley embraced being bold and hot with her risqué fashion style. It also marked her transition to the hip-hop genre, which is evident on her 2013 album, Bangerz.
Her “Wrecking Ball” music video is one of her earliest controversies because of its intriguing concept that also features some bare parts of her body, including her ass.
Despite its popularity for being controversial, the song topped the singles charts of Billboard in the year of its release, defining Miley’s transition as a success.
Miley went silent after a while, and in 2015, she released a non-mainstream project called Her Dead Petz, a psychedelic/rock album in collaboration with the band Flaming Lips.
In 2017, Miley abandoned her daring persona when she released a country/ballad album, Younger Now. She also ditched her provocative nature, which before includes showing off her boobs to the public, creating more controversies.
Her music credibility made her a coach for The Voice, a TV show singing competition, which aired in 2016-2017. Aside from being an excellent actress and singer, Miley is also known for having a slim and gorgeous body, which is evident in her bikini photos you can find in our esteemed compilation.
