She is the idol of American youth! Destiny Hope Miley Cyrus, alias Miley Cyrus, born November 23, 1992 in Nashville, USA, is the daughter of country actor and singer Billy Ray Cyrus. Always a cheerful and smiling child, she is nicknamed “Smiley”. (smile in English) by her parents, but as she can’t pronounce the word, she becomes “Miley”. She managed to get her official name change in March 2008. She grew up in the perfect example of a large stepfamily with 5 siblings. One of her older brothers, Trace, is the singer and guitarist of the band Metro Station. Miley Cyrus was drawn to the stage at an early age, and at the age of 11, she tried her hand at television, taking advantage of her father’s notoriety to make a name for herself. She appeared in the series Doc, right by her father’s side. Then she was cast in Tim Burton’s Big Fish as Ruthie.
It was in 2006 that Miley Cyrus was revealed to the world when, through perseverance, she landed the lead role in the series Hannah Montana. She portrays a young high school student who, alongside her life as a model student, secretly leads a successful singing career under the pseudonym Hannah Montana. Broadcast on the Disney Channel, the series quickly becomes a huge success and suddenly propels Miley from the status of (almost) anonymous to that of a world star. Her role earned her several nominations and two Teen Choice Awards. On the set, the pretty, doll-faced Miley fell in love with actor and singer Nick Jonas, and the series proved to be a godsend for the young woman, allowing her to showcase her singing talents at the same time: the songs Miley sang in the series were all catapulted to the top of the charts in turn.
In June 2007, Miley, after signing with Hollywood Records (a Disney subsidiary), released a double album: the first CD is the soundtrack to Hannah Montana’s season 2 and the second, Meet Miley Cyrus, is her first solo album. The latter is a huge success, topping the charts and certified three times platinum. In the fall of 2007, Miley embarked on her first tour, Best Of Both World Tour, which was a huge hit. In December 2007, she finally broke up with Nick Jonas, but Miley continued to ride the wave of his success. In July 2008, she released a second album, Breakout, for which she co-wrote most of the tracks. The album was another success. Miley also lends her voice to an animated film, Volt, star in spite of himself, released at the end of November 2008. In March 2009, the starlet with a busy life, 16 and a half years old at the time, published her autobiography, Miles to Go. A month later, the film Hannah Montana, the film adapted from the series, was released. But at the same time, the actress and singer, determined to grow up, created controversy by appearing backless in Vanity Fair magazine. Then that same year, she released a third album, The Time of Our Lives, in conjunction with her clothing line, for which she collaborated with the stylist Max Azria for Walmart.
In the summer of 2009, she shot the film The Last Song, written especially for her to ensure her transition to a more adult image. It was during the filming that she met actor Liam Hemsworth (Chris’s brother), a young Apollo from Australia. After releasing a new album, Time of Our Lives, she concluded 2009 with a new tour, the Wonder Tour World. In December 2009, she became so famous that she sang in front of Queen Elizabeth II. In 2010, she toured the fourth and final season of Hannah Montana. But also LOL: made in USA, the remake of the French film LOL, in which she plays Lola, a 16-year-old girl who loses her virginity, smokes cannabis and kisses two girls on the mouth. Not really a compositional role for the young woman brought up in Christianity who confided, at 16, that she was wearing a purity ring (a symbol of her commitment to keep her virginity until her marriage)… We find her the same year in So Undercover.
On the heart side, in June 2012, the very seductive Liam Hemsworth has been giving his sweetheart a magnificent engagement ring since 2009. But the couple separates in September 2013. In November 2014, Miley Cyrus is shown on the arm of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, Patrick, before separating a few months later in April 2015. In early 2016, rumours evoked a backlash between the singer and Liam Hemsworth. On December 23, 2018, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were married. But in August 2019, the couple separated.
