Cyrus, 24, grew up in the spotlight as the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus.
She landed her own Disney Channel show,”Hannah Montana,” when she was 14-years-old. When the show ended in 2011, Miley, going on 19, was already letting loose.
If there was any question about her making the transition from teen to adult star, she quickly dispelled them. She became a cultural icon for totally uninhibited wild child partying.
It wasn’t long before she was shedding her clothes and celebrating her sexual liberation with both girls and guys.
Her notoriety exploded following her risque duet with the much-older Robin Thicke at the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards.” Her wild run culminated with her worldwide Bangerz Tour in 2014 and Dead Petz album in 2015.
Miley kicked off the tour in Vancouver, Canada, and put on a wild, hip-gyrating, crotch-flashing, butt-baring show that represented everything she’d become over the past year.
For the cover of Dead Petz, she wore a unicorn suit with a dildo for a horn.
But Miley says she’s given up marijuana, alcohol and nipple pasties. Instead, she’s going for a more serious sound that takes her back to her roots, she told Billboard magazine.
She said she wanted to be “super clear and sharp” so she could focus on a new collection of songs reflective of her country music roots.
“I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do,” she said.
Her upcoming album will feature acoustic songs and melodies she’s written. One song will also be dedicated to Hillary Clinton. She won’t be shedding her commitment to feminism and women in the workplace, however.
“I don’t think those people are going to listen to me when I’m sitting there in nipple pasties, you know?” she explained.
If that’s the new Miley, be sure to check out the old Miley… she’ll definitely be missed.
