Miley Cyrus

Born Destiny Hope Cyrus 23 November 1992. Raised in Franklin, Tennessee. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus famous for his big 1992 hit "Achy Breaky Heart". Her mother is Tish Cyrus. She has an older brother and a younger sister.

Based on various interviews, below are the top fifteen things she wants you to know.

1. Hannah Montana

Miley became an internationally known teen idol when she starred in Disney's "Hannah Montana". She had three albums from 2007 to 2010. Her metamorphosis from teen idol to sexually explicit pop chick occurred in 2013.

2. Changing

"If you let your past be your present, then it's inevitably going to be your future. I don't want that anymore. I don't wanna feel tied to something that, obviously, isn't me. I realized I can just take care of myself. I just want to be in my own space where I can be my own person."

3. Growing Up

"Regrets not at all it wasn't just to shock people it really was a purpose I guess to make myself every one in the world be talking about me and my music which right now it is."

4. Figuring It Out

"I went from Hannah Montana. I really feel like every day I'm figuring it out. People that know me, they see me change every week, every two weeks. I'm changing and learning so much. I think especially now that I feel like I found more of my independence. I don't think I was even really happy with who I was."

5. Performing With Madonna

"What she represents is freedom. She was really ahead of a lot of women in that way. Just being like we are women, we are going to be free, not be afraid of sexuality and who we are. Stand up for what we think is right and she definitely was an inspiration for me. It was nice to share the stage with someone I knew I could get away with a lot. She wasn't scared of me."

6. Random Photographs

"I stick my tongue out because I get embarrassed to take pictures. So I stick my tongue out because I don't know what else to do. My mom's the one who gets most mad at me about the tongue."

7. Not Going Out

"I'm a home bird and prefer everyone to come to me and like being in my house. I'm also a night owl and do most of my studio recording during the night. I have a home studio, but it doesn't have everything. It's only for making demos."

8. On Karaoke

"'Hit Me Baby One More Time' because I like, full-on, know the whole dance, which is embarrassing."

9. Billy Ray Cyrus' Opinion

"Miley is a very very smart young lady and the reinvention is tough. You either find it or you don't. Sometimes it takes that evolution. To come out of the shadows of Hannah Montana takes something really drastic, which when you go to that level it creates passion, and passion is either love or hate."

10. What Miley Thinks That Her Dad Thinks

"My dad's cool. Sure he'd rather me not have my tits out all the time, but he'd rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch. I think that Americans are totally fine with tits, but it's the nipples they don't like."

11. What She Thinks We Think

"That's what music is supposed to do and you can either love it or hate it. That's everyone's right to do so because it's art."

12. Great Quote

"You're always going to make people talk you might as well make them talk for two weeks rather than two seconds."

13. Advice to a Sixteen Year Old

"Less is more. Chill. I think when you're younger you try to make yourself look older. You're going to regret it as you get older. I wear less makeup now at twenty-two than I did, maybe, when I was sixteen. Girls are chasing girls that don't exist. It's like chasing reality that is not real."

14. Subject Matter

"I pretty much write about anything because the media is going to dissect what you say anyways. So I might as well just be honest."

15. Twerking at the VMAs

"If you look at our [Miley and Robin Thicke] videos together you know we're not gonna come out and do the Hockey-Pockey. Definitely not. I got a new obsession with teddies and it was fun. It's supposed to be a silly night where you can come out with pig-tails and come out of a bear. How sexy am I meant to be, I come out with pigtails, I come out of a bear like a onesie. It was really the foam finger that took things to the next level. You know you're gonna get a crazy reaction, no matter what I do. You might as well keep people talking about it."
