Here is what happened:
Miley Cyrus is a star who has been in the entertainment industry since she was thirteen years old and gained prominence on “Hannah Montana”. This led to many hit songs and unforgettable pop culture moments from twerking at the 2013 MTV VMAs to her interactions with E! News. Miley recently made headlines with her hit song “Used To Be Young,” where she wrote about reflecting on the past while still looking forward.
Despite her fame, there are many unknown facts about Miley Cyrus. From her real name, Destiny Hope, to her nickname “Smiley” which eventually became “Miley.” Her parents chose this name because they believed she was a giver, thus leading to the name “Destiny Hope.” Miley’s godmother is Dolly Parton, a close friend of her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. Additionally, Miley was inspired to pursue a career in the entertainment industry after seeing a production of “Mamma Mia!” with her father. She then made her acting debut on Billy Ray’s PAX TV series Doc, before auditioning for “Hannah Montana.”
Miley experienced difficulties during the filming of “Hannah Montana,” as she divulged in 2009 that she had struggled to maintain a relationship with her co-star Emily Osment. After the show ended, she struggled with finding her own identity as a public figure. Miley opened up about struggling with her identity and image perception outside of what was portrayed on “Hannah Montana.” She also had well-documented relationships with both Nick Jonas and Liam Hemsworth, both driving songs in her discography.
