Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992) is an American actress and recording artist. The
daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, she held minor roles in the television series
Doc and the film Big Fish in her
childhood. In 2006, Cyrus rose to prominence as a teen idol after being cast in the Disney Channel television series
Hannah Montana, in which she portrayed the starring character Miley Stewart. After signing a recording contract with
Hollywood Records in 2007, Cyrus released her debut studio album
Meet Miley Cyrus. It was certified
quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments exceeding four million
copies, and produced the hit single "See You Again". In 2008, Cyrus released her second album
Breakout, which
featured the successful track "7 Things", and launched her film career as the voice actress in the animated film
Bolt. In
2009, Cyrus starred in the feature film
Hannah Montana: The Movie, the soundtrack for which produced the hit single
"The Climb".

Cyrus developed a maturing image with her extended play
The Time of Our Lives (2009), which featured the successful
track "Party in the U.S.A.". The transition continued with her third album
Can't Be Tamed (2010); however, it made little
commercial impact and became the lowest-selling record of her career. Later that year, Cyrus starred in the
coming-of-age film
The Last Song. During its production, she was involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with her
co-star Liam Hemsworth; the couple ultimately separated after ending their year-long engagement in 2013. Cyrus
focused on her acting career with several television and film appearances throughout 2011 and 2012. After leaving
Hollywood Records, Cyrus signed a recording contract with RCA Records in 2013. Later that year, she released her
fourth album
Bangerz, by which point she had become associated with a controversial public image. Its singles "We
Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were promoted with provocative music videos. The latter track became her first
number-one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Cyrus is recognized as among the most successful artists to originate from The Walt Disney Company. She has five
non-consecutive number-one albums on the U.S. Billboard 200, two of which are soundtracks credited to her titular
character Hannah Montana, and has earned numerous awards and nominations. In 2010, Cyrus ranked number thirteen
on Forbes' Celebrity 100, and was named the "Most Charted Teenager" in the 2011 Guinness World Records with
twenty-nine Billboard Hot 100 entries as of November 2009. In 2013, she was recognized as the "Artist of the Year" by
