Miley Cyrus

Occupation: Singer, Actress

Nationality: American

Born: November 23, 1992 (21)

Miley Cyrus first achieved fame and teen idol status under the alias of Hannah Montana in the hugely successful, super lucrative Disney comedy series of the same name. As the show progressed, Cyrus began to step out from her beloved character's shadow by releasing the triple platinum album Meet Miley Cyrus and embarking upon the Best Of Both Worlds tour as both herself and Montana.

Cyrus moved to cultivate a more adult image with her starring role in coming-of-age movie The Last Song and the release of a controversial, more sexualised, edgier-sounding album Can't Be Tamed. However, her move into maturity has been accompanied by large amounts of scandal, most notably when she appeared in a topless photoshoot at the age of 15 and was caught giving a lap dance to a film director at just 16 years old. Her duet with Robin Thicke at MTV's Video Music Awards in August 2013 provoked further media controversy and debate.

Since working on The Last Song, Cyrus started a relationship with co-star Liam Hemsworth. The couple dated on and off for two years, announcing their engagement in June 2012. They broke off their engagement just over a year later, ahead of the release of Cyrus's fourth studio album BANGERZ.
