  • Fun Faith Fact!: In 2008, Donny Osmond wrote, "In 3 to 5 years, she'll be facing adulthood...as she does, she'll want to change her image and that change will be met with adversity."

Mile Cyrus, one of 6 combined siblings from her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, has come a long way from the farm in Franklin, outside of Nashville where she was raised. After moving to Hollywood in 2005, she was inspired to try acting, and landed a role in Tim Burton's Big Fish.

She auditioned for Hannah Montana, and the rest, as they say, is history. Taking the collective acting and musical world by storm, and conquering each in turn, Miley Cyrus has made a name for herself, and in recent years has become somewhat controversial. Time magazine included her in their 2008 Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world, with Donny Osmond writing, "Within three to five years, Miley will have to face adulthood. [...] As she does, she'll want to change her image, and that change will be met with adversity."

She announced plans for an acoustic album in 2014, and played an acoustic concert show on MTV Unplugged, becoming the highest rated episode in the past decade.

She has liberal political views and is an outspoken supporter of gay rights. In July 2013, she made the controversial decision to pose nude for Marc Jacobs' "Protect the Skin You're In" campaign, raising awareness and cash for melanoma research benefitting the NYU Cancer Institute.
