1. The “Hannah Montana” Era
2. June 2006: Miley starts dating Nick Jonas
The only real scandal here was Nick’s armpits (see below) until photos she intended for only Nick to see surfaced after their breakup.
5. but that that was nothing compared to what was to about to pop up online!
We soon learned that Miley enjoyed two things while posing for a selfie: exposing her midriff and DUCKFACE.
The head of Disney was outraged:
“For Miley Cyrus to be a ‘good girl’ is now a business decision for her. Parents have invested in her a godliness. If she violates that trust, she won’t get it back.
So Miley apologized:
“I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about.”
10. February 2009: insensitive faces
Miley and friends catch flack after a photo of her making “Asian eyes” circles around the Internet.
Miley issued a statement about the controversy:
“I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context! In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy? It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me. If that would of been anyone else, it would of been overlooked! I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’!”
16. June 2010: Miley releases a single called “Can’t Be Tamed”
It was the start of her “rebellious phase” — something each Disney star seems to go through.
Eventually Miley apologized in the pages of Marie Claire:
It was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for. I’m not perfect … I made a mistake. I’m disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans.
There’s no hold barred… the sex is wild! Liam fulfills all my fantasies, and I fulfill his. [We] do it everywhere – it’s become a game to see who can come up with the most bizzare place!
34. Now: a brand-new Miley
35. September 2012: Miley choped her hair off, went bleach blonde
36. and her style kind of changed along with it:
38. What’s next?
It’s crazy to think that Miley is still only 19! That’s two whole years before she can legally drink — and she’s likely to be married even before then. I can’t wait.
