Miley Cyrus, born Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, she is the daughter of '90s country star Billy Ray Cyrus. Destiny Hope changed her name to Miley after the nickname she was given as a baby because she was always smiling.

Cyrus grew up on the family farm near Nashville with two siblings and three half-siblings. She was passionate about acting from a young age, appearing in her father's TV series Doc and in Tim Burton's Big Fish.

In 2004, Cyrus beat out 1,000 hopefuls to land the starring role of Miley Stewart in the hit Disney show Hannah Montana. The tween series features a young pop superstar (Montana) who hides her celebrity identity to be an everyday teen in real life (Stewart).

To accommodate filming, the entire family moved to Los Angeles, California, in 2005; Billy Ray plays her fictional dad-manager on the show. Cyrus released a successful Hannah Montana soundtrack album in 2006.

In 2007, her double album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus launched a Best of Both Worlds tour. The concerts sold out in record time, and the show was extended by 14 dates to help placate disappointed fans. Her successful 3-D concert film collected $31.3 million in its opening weekend in February 2008. Cyrus is also a spokesperson for Daisy Rock Guitars and has her own clothing line, and it has been reported that she earned $18.2 million in 2007.

Cyrus changed her legal name to Miley Ray Cyrus in 2008. That same year, she found herself in the midst of a controversy for posing for revealing photographs taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, which appeared in Vanity Fair magazine. The resulting criticism and media frenzy did little damage to her career, however. Her album, Breakout (2008), was a huge hit, reaching the top of the pop album charts.

In early 2009, Cyrus provided a look into her life with the autobiography Miles to Go. The book features previously unseen photos, family stories and "a look at her inner circle of loved ones." "I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me," Cyrus said in a statement. "I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams."

Cyrus has also made headlines for her romantic life. In June 2009, she reunited with former boyfriend Nick Jonas of the musical group the Jonas Brothers. Cyrus was also previously linked to model Justin Gaston.

Hannah Montana: The Movie was released March 2009(bringing in more than $79 million.) and peaked at number one, while the soundtrack's lead single -- a country-pop ballad called "The Climb" -- became one of the year's most omnipresent songs, giving Miley her first multi-platinum hit. A short album, The Time of Our Lives, arrived several months later and yielded another hit with "Party in the U.S.A.," which charted inside the Billboard Top Ten for 16 weeks. Cyrus performed the song on the "Wonder World Tour," her first international tour, and also found time to film another movie, The Last Song, which hit theaters in 2010. With acting assuming such a large role in her life, Cyrus announced her decision to take a hiatus from music -- but not before the release of her third album, Can't Be Tamed, which appeared that summer.

She was back on the big screen with "LOL" and "So Undercover" in 2012, but it didn't really perform well partly because of the lack of promotion on the movie studio's part. Slowly but sure, her new album came together. While working on it, she treated fans by guesting on other artists' songs including Snoop Dogg's "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" and will.i.am's "Fall Down".

Her fourth album is yet to be titled, but already she offered a solid introduction with lead single "We Can't Stop", which became her second-highest charting single after 2009's "Party in the U.S.A." The music video broke the Vevo record for most views in 24 hours, garnering 10.7 million views and beating out Justin Bieber's "Beauty and a Beat" release with 10.6 million views.

For the summer of 2013, the twerking pop rock superstar announced the release of a new album called BANGERZ. She also followed up the announcement with an explanation but it seems fans would need to hear the music first before they could understand the choice for the album title: "If you don't know why my record is called BANGERZ you'll know as soon as you hear it. Nothin but #BANGERZ". She is bringing pop princess Britney Spears for the album too.
