Miley Cyrus Loves Her Leather
|Main cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (Disney).|
Miley's success continues. She is in Marvel Studio's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (out May 5, 2017). This is the sequel to the 2014 smash hit about intergalactic criminals. Miley only "appears" after the credits scroll in a cameo. Guardians director James Gunn reveals that Miley has an uncredited voice role as Mainframe, a robotic warrior designed by Iron Man. No word on how long the cameo appearance is or anything like that, but Miley fans are certain to wait it out to hear Miley's bit part. The "Guardians" franchise is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (filming also is done at Disney studios), and Miley has a very long history with Disney. She voiced a character in Disney animated feature film "Bolt," and of course got her start on the Disney Channel. The "Guardians" franchise is noted for its use of music, so adding Miley is a natural. In fact, there also will be a new "Guardians fo the Galaxy" Disneyland Resort attraction at Disney California Adventure Park opening on 28 May 2017. Guess whose voice would be ideal at that attraction? Hmmmmm. Just sheer speculation there.

Miley Cyrus also has a new album out in 2017 (still untitled as of this writing). She gave a free-wheeling interview to Billboard Magazine in May 2017 regarding the process of making it.

Miley told Billboard about the process of making her latest album:
This is crazy, but I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks! I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved, open. And I was noticing, it’s not the people that are stoned. I want to be super clear and sharp, because I know exactly where I want to be.Apparently, Miley put a lot of thought into this album.
Giving up marijuana was no small matter for Miley. She threw her man Liam Hemsworth a marijuana-themed birthday party in January.

Miley remains a singing icon for her followers who have grown up with her - and an increasing number of men who are only starting to notice her talents. But Miley Cyrus also is a beacon of controversy, inciting passions that are not always appreciative of her efforts.
Is Miley Cyrus an icon for many girls who grew up with her on the Disney Channel? Undoubtedly.
She definitely knows how to get attention. Miley Cyrus apparently loves to make faces, and she's great at it!
It has been reported that 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. Of course, what bad things could happen to your tongue?
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. Of course, her tongue is probably worth a heck of a lot more than $1 million. Heck, my tongue is worth more than $1 million to me. So, as is often the case with Miley, some view that as kind of a publicity stunt.
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 shameless stunts. That said, Miley does continue to act in television, so who knows. She is said to idolize Meryl Streep.
Naturally, Miley's love life is a constant source of speculation. There are constant rumors that Miley is getting serious with Liam Hemsworth. They were engaged at one point.

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, her daddy says this, Liam says that.... Sounds like the Jennifer Biel and Justin Timberlake saga, and you know how that wound up.
Miley does a lot of guest appearances. She was a performer on two episodes of "The Voice" in 2016.

Recently, Miley has played Lennie Dale on "Crisis in Six Scenes" on television.
Miley's big song hit was "Wrecking Ball." She filmed a sexy video for it that still causes controversy.
She appeared on "A Very Murray Christmas" with Bill Murray.
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. Her show was the first one broadcast. Being first counts for a lot in life.

Miley made many of the "hottest girl" lists in 2011. So did Katy Perry. They go well together.

Miley lent her voice to the Disney animated film "Bolt." She costarred with John Travolta. That's part of being a Disney child star, you get gigs like that.

Miley has a way with words, so let's look at some of her quotes.
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."
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.
