Miley Cyrus is one of the most famous 20 year olds in the world. She is known for being a part of the Hannah Montana franchise run by Disney. Before that, the only reason people would know who she was would be because of her father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus.
Miley began her career twelve years ago when she appeared in the TV series “Doc”. That show was short-lived. She then went on to have a small role in the 2003 film “Big Fish”. 2006 was the year that changed everything for Cyrus. She was casted to play Hannah Montana, a famous singer who leads two lives, one of Hannah Montana and the other of Miley Stewart who is a normal girl going to school. Miley fools everyone by wearing a blonde wig when performing as Hannah. Cyrus’s dad is also cast in the show as Robbie Ray Stewart.
The show was instantly a Disney sensation, producing four studio albums based off the show, one based on the concert movie that was released in 2008, and one more based on Hannah Montana, The Movie in 2010. As the Hannah Montana came to a close in 2011, fans around the world were heartbroken, and I was one of them.
Cyrus’s interest in music did not stop there. When she was playing Hannah Montana, she released a solo album that was entirely Miley. It was an instant hit, especially with Hannah Montana fans. When Hannah Montana ended, Cyrus started to show a more edgy side and produced an album with the title “Can’t be Tamed”. Many criticized Cyrus for it saying that she should appeal to her younger fan base. I believe that Cyrus just needed to grow up and separate herself from Hannah Montana.
Cyrus then broke into the movie scene by starring in “The Last Song” with Liam Hemsworth and Greg Kinnear. While on the set, Hemsworth and Cyrus started dating. The pair are still together and engaged after three years. Cyrus has recently come under media scrutiny for cutting her hair really short and dying it blonde, along with not wearing her engagement ring, however she has announced that everything with her fiancee is fine and they will be married at some point.
Right now, Cyrus is working on a solo album in hopes to have it out within the next year. It will be edgy and it will express Miley in a way that she has not been able to do before. I think Miley will be successful with her next album, but she should stick to the acting scene. Most of her movies and her Hannah Montana franchise have been very, very successful. I think that whatever Miley does, whether it be musically or otherwise, fans will like it. However, she does need to clean up her visible edginess. Fans were very put off by her hair changes and her partying without her engagement ring on. If she cleans it up just a little, she will be one of the most successful young women in Hollywood.
