Miley Cyrus all grown up!
International pop culture phenomenon Miley Cyrus rocketed to fame almost instantly after being added to the Disney Channel’s stable of wholesome teenage entertainers in 2006. As “Hannah Montana” (2006-2010), Cyrus won over tween audiences by playing a perky and charming middle-school student who happens to lead a secret double life as a pop singer. While the premise was the definition of hokey TV fabrications, it was actually not too far removed from Cyrus’ own life as a decidedly normal young girl from Tennessee, who also happened to be the daughter of 1990s country music chart-topper, Billy Ray Cyrus. Ms. Cyrus got an early taste of the performer’s lifestyle, thanks to her country star-turned-actor father, Billy Ray, who topped the charts in the 1990s with the best-selling single, “Achy Breaky Heart.”
On 1 July 2014, Forbes published a list of the most powerful celebrities of the moment, Cyrus placed at #17, ahead of Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift, they stated that her earnings are around $36 million and that “Cyrus returns to the Forbes Celebrity 100 after a four-year absence. The last time she made our list was when she was still rolling in Hannah Montana money. Now the pop singer is all grown up and courting controversy at every turn.
