How Did Miley Cyrus Go From From Her Squeaky Clean Days Of Hannah Montana To The Outspoken Controversial Pop Star She Is Today? I'm Hyla And This Is The Evolution Of Miley Cyrus.

Born In Franklin, Tennessee In 1992, The Farm-raised Teen Was Given The Name Destiny Hope By Her Parents, Who Hoped She Would Achieve Greatness. "Smiley Miley," Her Childhood Nickname Would Later Become Her Legal Name When She Changed It To Miley Ray Cyrus In 2008.

Miley's Father, Billy Ray Cyrus, Who Was A Big 90's Country Music Star Landed A Role In The Tv Series "doc" In 2001. It Was Around This Time That Miley Decided She Also Wanted To Act And At Age 9 She Starred Alongside Her Father On Show.

Two Years Later, Miley Took A Small Role In Tim Burton's "Big Fish." After Several Auditions, Miley Beat Out 1,000 Other Hopefuls And Landed Her First Starring Role As Miley Stewart In Disney Channel's
Hit Series "Hannah Montana".

After A Guest Appearance On Hannah Montana, The Youngest Jonas Brother, Nick Jonas, And Miley Shared A Close Relationship. Billy Ray Said In His Memoir "Hillbilly Heart" That "This Might Be The Closest To A Normal Boyfriend Miley Would Ever Know." They Would Go On To Date Off And On For Three Years.

In 2008 A 15 Yr Old Miley Was Criticized For Photos She Took That Appeared In Vanity Fair. In Them She Was Wearing Nothing But A Loosely Draped Sheet In One Shot And Posing Rather Seductively With Her Father In Another. She Told People Magazine, "I Took Part In A Photoshoot That Was Supposed To Be Artistic, And Now Seeing The Photographs And Reading The Story, I Feel So Embarrassed."

However, The Critics Did Little To Damage Her Career As She Was Named "People's Richest Kid In The World", Earning An Estimated $1 Million Dollars Per Week While On Tour.

Miley Released Her So-called Grown-up Album, "Breakout," Which Debuted At Number One In July Of 2008. She Called The Album A "Little Therapy Moment". Then In 2009 She Followed That Up With "Hannah Montana: The Movie" Which Grossed Over $150 Million Worldwide.

In December 2010 Miley Was Involved In A Drug Scandal When A Cell Phone Video Was Shot Of Her Smoking Out Of A Bong. She Claimed That It Was Not Marijuana But Salvia.

However Miley Went On To State In 2011 That Quote "I'm Not Perfect," "I Made A Mistake ... I'm Disappointed In Myself For Disappointing My Fans."

The World Saw A New Miley When She Decided To Sport A New Do. She Told V Magazine "I'm Going To Change, I'm Going To Be Different, I'm Going To Do What I Want To Do. I Chopped My Hair And Bought A Pair Of Docs And Never Looked Back."
