Miley Ray Cyrus is an American actress, song writer and pop singer (born Destiny Hope Cyrus, November 23rd, 1992). She achieved her fame for her role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana. Cyrus recorded music for the soundtracks, Hannah Montana (2006) and Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), released by Walt Disney Records. With the success from the Hannah Montana franchise, she soon became a teen idol. In 2007, Cyrus signed to Hollywood Records to persue a solo career. She went on the Best Of Both World Tour in the same year, in which she performed as both herself and her character, Hannah Montana. The tour was eventually turned into a DVD called Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert (2008), which earned $70,642,036. In April 2008, Miley released her first solo album, Breakout, which was commercially successful.
She began her career into film by providing the voice of “Penny” in the animated film Bolt (2008). Cyrus earned a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for her performance of Bolt’s theme song, “I Thought I Lost You“. She also brought her role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana into film, in Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009). The movie’s soundtrack introduced her to new audiences, within country and adult contemporary markets.
She began to bring out an adult image in 2009, with the release of The Time Of Our Lives, an extended play which presented a more mainstream pop sound, and by filming The Last Song (2010), a coming-of-age drama film. The album included Cyrus’ best-selling single, Party In The U.S.A. A studio album titled Can’t Be Tamed was released in 2010, and presents a new dance-pop sound. The music video and lyrics of the album’s lead single “Can’t Be Tamed”, shows off a more sexualized image for the entertainer. Cyrus ranked #13 on Forbes’ 2010 Celebrity 100. For the 2011 Guinness book of world records, she was named the “Most Charted Teenager” following her 29th US Billboard Hot 100 chart entry on November 7, 2009 with Party in the USA.
Miley was born and raised in Tennessee to parents Leticia “Tish” Cyrus, and country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. Her parents named her Destiny Hope, because they believed that she would accomplish great things in her life. They gave her the nickname “Smiley“, which was later shortened to Miley, because she smiled so much as a baby. Cyrus suffers from a mild heart condition causing tachycardia, but isn’t life-threatening.
2001 – 2005: Career Beginnings
In 2001, when Miley was eight, she and her family moved to Toronto, Canada while her father filmed the television series Doc. Cyrus said watching her father film the show inspired her to pursue acting. In her first role, Cyrus played a girl named Kylie on Doc. In 2003, Cyrus was credited under her birth name for her role as “Young Ruthie” in Tim Burton’s Big Fish.
At age 11, Cyrus learned about the casting for what became Hannah Montana, a Disney Channel children’s television series about a school girl with a secret double life as a teen pop star. Cyrus sent in a tape auditioning for the show’s best friend role, but received a call asking her to audition for the lead, “Chloe Stewart“.After sending in a new tape and flying to Hollywood for further auditions, Cyrus was told that she was too young and too small for the part. However, her persistence and ability to sing in addition to act led the show’s producers to invite her back for further auditions. Cyrus eventually received the lead, renamed “Miley Stewart” after herself, at the age of twelve.
For Miley’s music career, Tish followed the advice of Dolly Parton, Cyrus’s godmother and a singer herself, and signed Cyrus with Jason Morey of Morey Management Group. “Dolly said the Moreys are people you can trust around your daughter,” Tish Cyrus recalls, “and she said they have good morals, which is not always the case in this business.” According to trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter, Parton’s advice was “the best advice Tish could have gotten on who should rep her daughter.” Tish also recruited Billy Ray’s business manager to manage her daughter’s finances. Tish herself continues to co-manage or produce many of Cyrus’s career decisions.
2006 – 2007: Hannah Montana and Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus

The first single was The Best of Both Worlds, the theme song to Hannah Montana, which was released on 28th March 2006. Miley’s first release under her own name was a cover of James Baskett’s Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, released on 4th April 2006, on the fourth edition of DisneyMania.

The first disk was the soundtrack to the second season of Hannah Montana, while the second, titled Meet Miley Cyrus, was Miley’s debut album under her own name. The album peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 and was later certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry Accociation of America.

The film earned over $31 million at the box-office, twice the expected total, convincing Disney executives to extend the release. The film’s soundtrack was released by Walt Disney Records/Hollywood Records on 11th March 2008 and peaked at number three on the Billboard 200.
On 22nd July 2008, Miley released her second studio album, Breakout. She said the album was inspired by “what’s been going on in my life in the past year”. Miley co-wrote eight songs on the album. “Songwriting is what I really want to do with my life forever, I just hope this records showcases that, more than anything, I’m a writer”. The album debuted at #1 on the U.S Billboard 200 chart, and the lead single, 7 Things, peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Cyrus provided the voice of Penny in the 2008 computer-animated film Bolt, which was released on 21st November 2008. Miley also co-wrote and recorded the song “I Thought I Lost You” as a duet with John Travolta for the film, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.

Miley Cyrus has 14 tattoos – Just Breathe on her chest, Love in her ear, a dreamcatcher on her side, an anchor on her right wrist, an om symbol of her left wrist, a skull on her ankle, and Love Never Dies on her arm, and Roman Numerals on the other. On her fingers she has an equal sign, a peace symbol, a cross, a heart, the word Karma and an eye.
» Just Breathe
Miley’s first tattoo was “Just Breathe”, on the left side of her rib cage. The tattoo was revealed in December 2009. The tattoo is a tribute to her friend Vanessa who died of cystic fibrosis in 2007, and both her grandfathers who died of lung cancer. She told Harper’s Bazaar: “It reminds me not to take things for granted. I mean breathing – that was something none of them could do, the most basic thing. And I put it near my heart, because that is where they will always be.”
Miley’s second tattoo is the word “LOVE” on the inside of her right ear. The tattoo and its placement signify drowning out negative messages and only hearing the positive. She told Access Hollywood: “I have ‘Love’ right here to block out all the crap that everyone throws into your ears… I don’t really care about it. You’re only supposed to hear the things coming from the people that genuinely love you.” She also told E! News: “There’s so much negativity in the world and what you only need to hear is all the love. People try to say to me, ‘I just heard someone say this or that about you,’ and I just ignore it because it’s irrelevant. Love is what makes the world go around, and that’s all we need to focus on.”
In February 2011, Miley had a dreamcatcher tattooed on her right side. A friend told People Magazine: “It’s a picture of a dreamcatcher that hangs over her bed with four feathers to represent her four brothers and sisters. The dream catcher is to protect them.” Dreamcatchers are used in many Native American cultures to protect a person while sleeping, thought to catch bad dreams and let good dreams through when hung over the bed. Miley’s brother Trace also has a dreamcatcher on his neck.
Miley got an anchor tattoo on her wrist while she was in Brazil for her Gypsy Heart Tour in May 2011. The tattoo artist, Fabio Satori, eplained that the tattoo represents a feeling of safety to Miley, saying: “Everyone had an idea in mind and references. She asked me something soft, I made two drawings and she chose one. Miley told her mother that she wanted something that refers to a safe port, something that reminded her that she always has a safe place to return to. The significance of the design is one of hope and a reminder to always have your feet on the ground.”
» Om Symbol
Miley got another tattoo on her left wrist of the ‘Om’ symbol ॐ, which is a sacred symbol in Hinduism. It is a sound or vibration that represents divine energy.
The first of the small tattoos on Miley’s fingers was the small outline of a heart which she had tattoed on her right pinkie finger, in September 2010. This tattoo is shared between their family. Billy Ray had the tattoo in 2008, out of his love for Miley. They were sitting in church when Miley drew a small heart on his hand between his thumb and index finger. He told Access Hollywood that he “had already declared that day was Miley’s day”. She wanted to take him to a tattoo parlor and so he decided to get the heart in ink. Miley’s mum Tish has the heart tattoo on her pinkie too, coloured in pink. Her sister Brandi has hers in the same place as Billy Ray and brother Trace has a solid black heart on his thumb.
Miley has a little cross on her right hand on the side of her finger, which was first seen in 2010
She also has a peace sign on the side of her middle finger.
In July 2011, Miley got the word “karma” on the side of her index finger, which was first clearly noticed during the Gypsy Heart Tour.
» Equal Sign
Miley has only spoken about one of her finger tattoos, which is the equal sign on her ring finger. She got the tattoo in July 2011, tweeting a photo of the ink saying “All LOVE is equal” as a statement in favour of legalized gay marriage. The tattoo caused controversy from the media but Miley stood her ground. She told Glamour in February 2012: ‘When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, “All LOVE is equal,” a lot of people mocked me – they said, “What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl” And I said, “Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have our facts straight. Christianity is about love.
In March 2012, a tattoo which looks like an eye was spotted on Miley’s index finger. It is thought to be a Nazar, a symbol intended to ward off the “evil eye”.
Miley and her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth have matching tattoos on their ankles which were first spotted in August 2011. It is believed to be a sugar skull, though the tattoos still haven’t been seen clearly.
» Love Never Dies
In February 2012, Miley got another tattoo on the inside of her left arm, on her bicep, which says “Love Never Dies”.
» Roman Numerals
The tattoo which she got in May 2012 is Roman Numerals on the inside of her left elbow. The numerals are VIIXCI.
» Theodore Roosevelt Quote
In July 2012, Miley got a quote on the inside of her left forearm. The tattoo reads “so that his places shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” The quote is from former US president Theodore Roosevelt’s “Citizenship in a Rebublic” speech given in Paris in 1910.
Miley Cyrus was photographed in July 2012 with the word “BAD” tattooed on her finger in red ink. The tattoo seems to be a tribute to Michael Jackson’s album Bad which has the album name written in red. Miley has described herself as “a huge fan of Michael Jackson” and says that he is the male artist who has inspired her the most (Lady Gaga is her female inspiration). Speaking of Michael’s passing in 2009, Miley wrote “Michael Jackson was my inspiration. Love and blessings.”
In January 2013 Miley got a pair of crossed arrows on the back of her right elbow, which are a Native American symbol of friendship. She got the tattoo from artist Kat Von D. “Simple symbols of friendship make beautiful tattoos. <3″ Kat wrote.
On 15th March 2013 Miley got her 18th tattoo -
a miniature rendition of a daVinci anatomical heart. The tattoo was made again by
Kat Von D. She posted a picture in her Instagram, saying:
"Just did the RADDEST tattoo on @MileyCyrus -a miniature rendition of a daVinci anatomical heart! ❤"
“This too shall pass. It’s not the end of the world till there’s no pulse. You gotta keep going.”
“You can’t stop people from talking about you, but you can stop giving them something to talk about.”
“If you believe in yourself anything is possible.”
“The minute you stop making mistakes is the minute you stop learning.”
“Music is what I breathe, what I love to do. It keeps me alive.”
“There are multiple sides to all of us. Who we are – and who we might be if we follow our dreams.”
“Life’s a climb. But the view is great.”
“The biggest moments of insecurity come when all self-confidence is lost and you feel like people are watching and judging. It should be the opposite. You should feel like the people who are watching care about you. This is something we can try to give each other – the feeling that eyes signal support, not disdain.”
“Some people don’t have a family to fall back on, like I have, and that’s when something greater than even that comes in, and that’s faith and that’s what I have for me, that’s what keeps me strong.”
“The dreams that you hold for your future are what you dream about at night. They’re always at the back of your mind. They’re what your heart desires. They keep you going. Accept reality and have a backup plan, but always follow your dreams no matter what.”
“When you are ready to move on or if you come to peace with pain, you’ll find a silver lining.”
“Dad always says that I could sing before I could talk.”
“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. You never know what it’s going to look like on the other side, but you’ll see it eventually if you keep your eyes open.”
“Music is the love of my life. It’s a total escape from reality. Music transports you to another place, someplace unexpecet and meaningful.”
“Even the hard times are part of your life story. If you acknowledge them and move past them, they eventually add up to the experience that makes you wise.”
“The pictures of me on the Internet were silly, inappropriate shots. I appreciate all the support of my fans, and hope they understand that along the way I am going to make mistakes and I am not perfect. I never intended for any of this to happen, and I am truly sorry if I have disappointed anyone. Most of all, I have let myself down. I will learn from my mistakes and trust my support team.”
“Little moments attach themselves to other little moments and collect into big dreams. We become what we experience.”
“It is important to ask yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing and what purpose it serves in the big picture.”
“Beauty is the enemy. We try to conquer not feeling beautiful all our lives. It’s a battle that can’t be won. There’s no definition of beauty. The only way to achieve beauty is to feel it from inside without breaking it down into individual physical attributes.”
“You deal. You survive. You grow up and you build a career. And you remember these big/little hardships. They make you human.”
“Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not. That’s just life.”
“As soon as I step on that stage, nothing matters. I don’t think of it as work. It’s just so much fun.”
“Growing up is important, and I’ve got to do that gracefully, but also keep myself at a good pace.”
“The only people that you really have, that I learned, are your family, because they love you no matter what.”
“I will learn from my mistakes and trust my support team. My family and my faith will guide me through my life’s journey.”
“My fans are my family.”
“My favorite sport is cheerleading!”
“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act, because I’m still figuring that out for myself.”
“It’s important at Christmas time to be daring – to put your cell phone and your computer away and actually be with your family and not just be worrying about other things that you can deal with every other day.”
“I am obviously under the public eye a lot…Instead of putting negativity to it, taking the opportunity to make it a positive thing. It gives me an opportunity to voice those decisions, those things I go through a little more publicly, and hopefully they help people out in their lives.”
“I like to think of myself as the girl that no one can get, that no one can keep in their hand. Even at my age, a lot of girls are starting to fall and I think if [staying a virgin] is a commitment girls make, that’s great.”
“We’re all changing. I thank you for helping me as I grow through that.”
“You’re only supposed to hear the things coming from the people that genuinely love you.”
“Love is what makes the world go around, and that’s all we need to focus on.”

'Miles to go'
Miles to Go is an autobiography by Miley Cyrus, co-written by Hilary Liftin and published by Disney Hyperion in March 2009. The memoir discusses Cyrus' relationship with her parents, her thoughts on the media, her love life, her future ambitions and milestones she still has to reach in her life.

On a Today Show interview in April 2009, Cyrus said, "In my book, I want readers to feel what I feel; the emotion and power. I've explained how things went through in my life and how I've done it all. I just don't want my fans to come up to me and say all these things saying that famous is the best thing in the world. The popularity is pretty high and I want readers to understand that it is not that way about being a celebrity and not read it all for nothing." The book was listed on the Bestsellers chart at #78 out of 100.
The book, in which Cyrus writes about how she is an ordinary girl living her dream life, includes stories, poems, songs, photos and quotations from the Bible.
