Miley Cyrus, Tween Legend
Below, some pictures of Miley at various stages of her career, the common denominator being her engaging smile and sense of style.
Miley Cyrus apparently loves to make faces, and she's great at it!
Miley Cyrus has insured her tongue for $1 million since it is a key part of her act. "Miley’s totally aware of how her tongue is getting more headlines than she is, and getting it insured is just part of her trademarked image," said an unnamed source.
That Miley considers her tongue her trademark seems pretty obvious, since her stage show logo is a big tongue. It may seem weird to focus on your tongue for your image, but Miley is laughing all the way to the bank.
Miley has a lot of acting experience and has become quite good at it. However, she doesn't seem interested in becoming a serious actress, instead taking her celebrity to the bank with her endless series of tasteless stunts. Her highest profile role was the voice work that she did in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), which some speculate may lead to a prominent role in an eventual sequel.
There are constant rumors that Miley is getting serious with Liam Hemsworth.

You never know with these Hollywood romances what is really going on behind the scenes. They've been together, they've been apart, they've been back together, they've been this, they've been that.... Sounds like Jennifer Biel and Justin Timberlake, and you know how that wound up.
Miley was a performer on "The Voice" in 2016.

Miley occasionally takes television roles since her "Hannah Montana" and "The Emperor's New School" days. She appeared on a couple of "Two and a Half Men" episodes in 2012, on six episodes of "Crisis in Six Scenes" in 2016, and on "A Very Murray Christmas" in 2015. However, she appears to be focusing on her singing and film career.
Miley's big song hit was "Wrecking Ball." She filmed a sexy video for it that still causes controversy. Regardless, the song hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks and sold almost 4 million copies in the United States. It also did well overseas.
Miley's godmother is Dolly Parton.
Miley Cyrus is the most recognized Disney Channel star in South Africa because the channel began there while Miley was riding high as Hannah Montana.

Miley made many of the "hottest girl" lists in 2011, during her Gypsy Heart Tour. She was No. 1 on Maxim magazine's 2013 "Hot 100" list.

I really don't like coke (cocaine). It's so gross and so dark. It's like what are you, from the Nineties? Ew.
I've always dreamed of going into space. I'm going to go at some point. Virgin Galactic is taking a ship up next year - I'm trying to get on there right now. I've got a friend who invested in it, and he can kind of hook it up. I want to be one of the first ones. I thought the only way I would ever be allowed to go to space was if I was an astronaut. I never thought it was gonna be, like, a plane trip. At some point it's gonna be a normal fare. Right now it's like a billion dollars. But at some point it's gonna be like going to Australia.
I think water's, like, a really important thing.
People that judge me or say that I'm crazy, they don't know half the stuff that their kids are doing.
It's always weird when things are targeted for young people, yet they're driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can't be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn't leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear.
I want to be the cool chick that everyone wants to be friends with. I want the people who watch my shows or watch my videos to be like, "She looks like the most fun person to hang out with ever. I want to be that girl's best friend. I want to party with her." It's like, if you're hanging out with Beyoncé, it's almost like you're hanging out with a goddess. She's like a real queen. It's a different realm. Where my thing is kind of the opposite. My shtick is I'm the homey.
[Discussing Britney Spears] I love how successful her music is doing right now and [I am] just proud of her. You know, another Southern girl... I love that.
Miley is said to be a chain smoker. She also reportedly smokes marijuana.
Miley had a big hit with "Party In The U.S.A." It was parodied by "Weird Al" Yankovic as "Party In The CIA," which actually is quite an honor.
Miley is of English ancestry, along with varying amounts of Scottish, Irish, Welsh, French, Dutch, and German ancestry.
There's no right or wrong, success or failure. I don't look at things as black or white. My life won't be a series of either/ors -- musician or actor, rock or country, straitlaced or rebellious, this or that, yes or no. The real choices in life aren't that simple.
Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!
Miley has gotten herself into controversy with some of her antics. She said that Robin Thicke "wanted me as naked as possible" for the 2013 VMAs Performance that was roundly criticized by parent's groups.
Everything I’ve ever done has been true to me at that minute.
Miley says that Thicke knew exactly what was going to happen during that performance. Thicke, for his part, said that Miley had "hijacked the performance."
Many think that the 2013 VMA performance, in which Thicke and Miley basically simulated sex, was a bit beyond what was appropriate.
He [Robin Thicke] wanted me as naked as possible, because that’s how his video was. It was very much a collaboration. My part — 'We Can’t Stop' — was all me. But when it went into 'Blurred Lines,' that was his performance.
People around me really judged me. People that I really loved and thought were my friends judged me for it,. They were like, 'You were on drugs when you did that performance.' I did nothing! I still don’t get it.
I was staying at the Trump Hotel and Donald Trump literally called and said, basically, 'I know everyone’s talking about it, but I loved it.' I had no idea anyone was talking about it yet.
Miley has a bunch of tattoos. She may be the only celebrity with a Teddy Roosevelt quote as a tattoo.
Miley is a big fan of "Sex and the City." Being a huge star, she wrangled an appearance on "Sex and the City 2" (2010) playing herself.
Miley reportedly likes bands Coldplay, Radiohead, and The Killers.
Miley loves Chinese food.
Miley's music video of "Wrecking Ball" is approaching a billion views on youtube. You can't argue with that kind of success.
