Film and Music Success
Miley’s father Billy Ray Cyrus is a country music star and probably the reason for her choice of profession. Miley earned huge fame and fortune within a very short period of time. At the age of 9, she enrolled in the Armstrong Acting School of Toronto and immediately became a star. Her dedication to her passion for singing and acting (and a bit of twerking) has made her so successful. In acting school, she was cast in many small roles until 2003 when she was cast in Tim Burton’s movie Big Fish. One of her most famous roles was in the cast of Disney’s Hanna Montana.
Miley spread her wings after her initial introduction to acting and did two albums while still working on the Hanna Montana show. Her soundtrack for the show skyrocketed up the Billboard 200 to number one in 2006. The opening sales were ridiculous and were only to be best by the release of a double-disc the following year, the Hanna Montana soundtrack and Miley Cyrus’s original CD, Meet Miley Cyrus. This album went triple platinum with over 3 million copies being sold in the US. Her follow-up album remained atop the American charts of blockbusters.

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, of which she is a winner, saw a new side of Miley when she put on a show of ass twerking in her performance.

Miley Cyrus Relationship with Liam Hemsworth
Miley and Liam met while filming Nicholas Sparks’ romantic flick The Last Song in 2009 at a very young age of 16 and 19 respectively. They dated from June 2009 until September 2013. She calls him her best friend while Liam refers to her as his little angel.
They ended their relationship in August 2010 reportedly due to her work schedule but reconciled later. She announced her engagement with Liam in June 2012. Her engagement ring was a 3.5-carat, custom designed priced around $250,000 and designed by Neil Lane.
Liam viewed their breakup in 2013 as what needed to happen. He said they were both young and that the breakup was a good decision and what they both needed.
On Miley’s part, she said they broke up was because she was facing a major life change. And that changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard as it would look like you don’t recognize the other person anymore. She felt the relationship was like two halves trying to make a whole.
They both needed the time to grow up individually and they maintained their friendship throughout the period they were apart.
The duo started dating again in January 2016 when they allegedly got engaged for the second time. They look happier since they came together again.
She released a new single called Malibu which is a love song about Liam. She said it’s because she wanted to take back the narrative of her relationship, which has been in the spotlight for years.
