Biography: Miley Cyrus American singer and actress whose performance on the television show Hannah Montana (2006–11) and its related soundtrack albums catapulted her into stardom. Cyrus was born to country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife, Tish, and grew up on her family’s farm outside Nashville. Her sunny disposition as a child earned her the nickname Smiley Miley. At the age of nine she landed a role in an episode of his TV series Doc.
Another role, in the film Big Fish (2003), followed. In 2005 Cyrus auditioned for the lead role in Hannah Montana, a Disney Channel series about a girl who leads a double life as a normal middle-school student and, with the help of a blonde wig, as a glamorous pop singer. A soundtrack album featuring the music of Hannah Montana was released in 2006 and eventually sold more than three million copies.
It was followed by the equally successful Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), which was packaged as a double CD, with half of the material under Cyrus’s own name. In late 2007 Cyrus embarked on a national tour called Best of Both Worlds in support of her latest album. Two concerts from the tour were filmed and presented as a 3-D movie; it made more than $30 million in its opening weekend despite having been released only to select theatres. Although already well known to the preteen demographic, she gained wider exposure in early 2008 as her song “See You Again” crossed over to the pop charts.
Later that year she released the album Breakout and voiced one of the leading roles in the animated film Bolt. For the latter, Cyrus cowrote the single “I Thought I Lost You,” which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Though her celebrity status had increased, Cyrus continued to perform as Hannah Montana in various media. In early 2009 she starred in Hannah Montana: The Movie and sang on its soundtrack, and she later issued two additional soundtrack albums (2009, 2010) for the TV show before its final episode aired in 2011. Meanwhile,
Cyrus continued to record under her own name for the EP The Time of Our Lives (2009), which featured the hit “Party in the U.S.A.,” and the full-length album Can’t Be Tamed (2010). In addition, she took starring movie roles in the romantic drama The Last Song (2010) and the low-budget coming-of-age tale LOL (2012). In 2013 Cyrus released the album Bangerz, which departed from her earlier work in its embrace of hip-hop influences and its frequently adult-themed lyrics. Her new style was epitomized by the single “We Can’t Stop,” a bouncy ode to hedonism that she notably performed, in controversially risqué fashion, at the MTV Video Music Awards. The ballad “Wrecking Ball,” meanwhile, became Cyrus’s first song to top the Billboard singles chart. In 2016 Cyrus became a judge on the television singing competition The Voice. Her Net worth is $160 million.
