Cyrus grew up on her family’s farm outside of Nashville, where she was born to country musician and actor Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife, Tish. Her cheerful demeanor as a toddler gave her the moniker “Smiley Miley.”
(In 2008, she legally changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus.) Despite her father’s initial reluctance to let her follow in his footsteps in show business, she earned a role in an episode of his TV series Doc when she was nine years old. After that, he had a role in the film Big Fish (2003).
Cyrus auditioned for the lead part in Hannah Montana, a Disney Channel series about a girl who lives a double life as a typical middle-school student and a dazzling pop singer with the use of a blonde wig.
Though executives initially thought she was too little and young for the role, she persisted and was cast. The following year, the show (with Billy Ray as her TV father) premiered and became an instant hit, setting cable television ratings records and transforming the 13-year-old into a true star.
A soundtrack CD including Hannah Montana’s music was produced in 2006, aiming to capitalize on the show’s evident youth-market appeal. It eventually sold more than three million copies. Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (2007) was released shortly after, and was packaged as a double CD with half of the material under Cyrus’s own name.

Miley Cyrus dating timeline
Cyrus’ dating history has piqued fans’ interest, since she dated Hemsworth on and off after meeting on the set of The Last Song. They married in December 2018, but eight months later, they divorced. In early 2020, Cyrus and Hemsworth formalized their divorce.
Cyrus explained why the two couldn’t keep their marriage together, stating that “there was too much friction” between them.
“We’ve been together since I was 16 years old.” Our home was destroyed by fire. We were engaged — I’m not sure whether we really believed we’d actually get married — but when we lost our house in Malibu, which, if you listen to my voice pre- and post-fire, they’re very different, so that trauma really changed my voice,” she said Howard Stern in a December 2020 interview.
“Me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it and go, you know, ‘What could be intentional about this?'” she added. “I simply clung to what was left of that house, which was just myself and him,” she says.
“And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will,” the singer added.
Cyrus moved on fast after the marriage ended, dating Carter and then Simpson. The singer informed her fans about her breakup with Simpson during an Instagram Live session in August 2020.
“So today, it was confirmed by a’reliable source’ that me and my boyfriend had broken up, even though no one in a relationship is reliable except the two individuals who are engaging in it,” Cyrus added.
“But, for the time being, two halves don’t create a whole, so we’re each working on ourselves to become the people we want to be,” she added. “Like everybody else at this age, we’re just deciding who we wanna be with our lives, what we wanna do with our lives.”
“So, if we’re out hanging out or grabbing pizza next week, don’t make it some drama narrative,” Cyrus continued. “We’ve been friends for ten years and we’ll keep being pals.”
