Miley Cyrus - Biography
|last update : 13-03-2011 20:18|
|Born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee, United States. Miley Ray Cyrus stars in Disney Channel's new live-action comedy Hannah Montana. She played Miley Stewart, a regular teenage girl leading a double life, as pop singer Hannah Montana.
Cyrus developed a love for the stage after watching her dad, country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, perform. After appearing as an extra in her dad's television projects, Cyrus got her first chance to act opposite him in a recurring role on the television series "Doc." Since then, she guest-starred on "Love Boat: The Next Wave" and appeared in the Tim Burton film "Big Fish."
She recently relocated to Los Angeles from Nashville with her parents, sisters Brandi and Noah, brothers Trace and Braison and their dog Loco. Their seven horses, three dogs and two cats remain in Nashville under her grandmother's care - one of the most difficult adjustments for Cyrus who enjoys braiding the horses' tails. Now in her spare time in Los Angeles, she enjoys talking on the phone with friends back home. She also follows in her father's footsteps by writing music, playing guitar and singing. Her musical influences are pop singers Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff and Ashlee Simpson. In addition, she enjoys dancing and cheerleading - ESPN continues to rebroadcast competitions which feature her Tennessee Premiere Cheerleading Squad.
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), 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). Cyrus ranked number twenty-nine on Forbes' 2009 Celebrity 100. An upcoming studio album titled Can't Be Tamed will be 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 has stated that she intends to focus on acting rather than singing in the future.
