Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee, United States) is an American actress and pop singer. She gained fame for her role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana, which began in 2006 and ended in 2010. Cyrus recorded music for the soundtracks Hannah Montana (2006) and Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), released by Walt Disney Records, which helped establish her as a teen idol. In 2007, Cyrus signed to Hollywood Records for a solo career. She went on the Best of Both Worlds Tour the same year; the tour was eventually turned into a high-grossing concert film entitled Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert (2008).

In April 2008, Cyrus released her first solo album, Breakout (2008), which experienced international success and she was included in Time magazine's 2008 Top 100. She began her foray into films by providing the voice of "Penny" in the animated film Bolt (2008) and by reprising the role of Miley in Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009). Bolt's theme song, "I Thought I Lost You", earned her a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. Hannah Montana: The Movie' soundtrack introduced her to new audiences within country and adult contemporary markets.

She began to cultivate an adult image in 2009 with the release of The Time of Our Lives (2009), a mainstream pop extended play, 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). Cyrus ranked number twenty-nine on Forbes' 2009 Celebrity 100. Her studio album Can't Be Tamed was released in 2010. The music video and lyrics of the album's lead single, "Can't Be Tamed", portrayed a more sexualized image for the entertainer.

In 2013, Cyrus took a different musical direction in her career, working with R&B and hip hop producers on “Bangerz”, her first album on RCA Records; this album also marked a deep public image change to her, releasing more provocative music videos and lyrics, talking about sex, parties, and drugs. This continued with her next album “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz”, with a more experimental sound but still with provocative lyrics and music videos. For her next studio album "Younger Now" (2017), she returned to her country-pop music roots and a cleaner image compared to her two previous albums.
