Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992) is an American actress and pop singer-songwriter. She achieved wide fame for her role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channelsitcom Hannah Montana. Cyrus recorded music for the soundtracks, Hannah Montana (2006) and Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), released by Walt Disney Records. With the success of the Hannah Montana franchise she established herself as a teen idol. In 2007, Cyrus signed to Hollywood Records to pursue a solo career. She embarked upon the Best of Both Worlds Tour the same year, in which she performed as both herself and in character as Hannah Montana. The tour was eventually turned into a high-grossing concert film entitled Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert (2008). In July 2008, Cyrus released her first solo album, Breakout (2008), which was commercially successful.

She began her foray into film by providing the voice of “Penny” in the animated film Bolt (2008). Cyrus earned a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for her performance of Bolt‘s theme song, “I Thought I Lost You“. She also reprised her role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana in Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009). The Hannah Montana: The Movie‘ soundtrack introduced her to new audiences within countryand adult contemporary markets.

She began to cultivate an adult image in 2009 with the release of The Time of Our Lives (2009), an extended play which presented a more mainstream pop sound, and by filming The Last Song (2010), a coming-of-age drama film. The former included Cyrus’s best-selling single, “Party in the U.S.A.” (2009). A studio album titledCan’t Be Tamed was released in 2010 and presents a new dance-pop sound. The music video and lyrics of the album’s lead single, “Can’t Be Tamed“, portrays a more sexualized image for the entertainer. Cyrus ranked number thirteen on Forbes‘ 2010 Celebrity 100.[5] In April 2011, Cyrus was named the 64th hottest woman in the world on Maxims Hot 100.[6] In May 2011, Cyrus was also named the 89th sexiest woman in the world onFHM‘s 100 Sexiest Women in the world

Cyrus was born on November 23, 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee to Letitia “Tish”[8] (born Finley) and country singer Billy Ray Cyrus.[9][10] Her parents named her Destiny Hope because they believed that she would accomplish great things with her life. They gave her the nickname “Smiley”, which was later shortened to “Miley”, because she smiled so often as a baby.[11] Cyrus suffers from a mild heart condition causingtachycardia which, though not dangerous, is often bothersome.[12] She is of Irish, Scottish, English, French, Welsh, Dutch and Cherokee ancestry.[13]

Against the wishes of her father’s record company,[14] Cyrus’s parents secretly married a year after Cyrus’s birth on December 28, 1993.[10][15] Tish had two children from a previous relationship: Trace and Brandi. Billy Ray adopted Trace and Brandi when they were young.[16] She has a half-brother, Christopher Cody, Billy Ray’s son from a brief relationship, born the same year as Miley; he grew up with his mother in South Carolina.[14] Tish and Billy Ray had two more children, Braison and Noah. Cyrus’s godmother is entertainer Dolly Parton.[17] Cyrus was very close to her paternal grandfather, Democratic politician Ronald Ray Cyrus.[18] Cyrus has paid her grandfather several tributes since his death in 2006, including eventually changing her middle name to “Ray”.[19] According to Cyrus’s father, “A lot of people say Miley changed her name to Miley Ray because of Billy Ray, but that’s not true. She did that in honor of my dad, because the two of them just loved each other to pieces.”[12]

Cyrus grew up on a 500-acre (2.0 km2) farm in Franklin, Tennessee, approximately an hour away from Nashville,[20] and attended Heritage Elementary School.[21] She was raised Christian and was baptized in a Southern Baptist church prior to moving to Hollywood in 2005. She attended church regularly while growing up and wore a purity ring.[22] Several of Cyrus’s siblings also eventually entered the entertainment business: Trace became a vocalist and guitarist for the electronic pop band Metro Station,[23] Noah became an actress, and Brandi became a guitarist.
