The Life of Miley Cyrus
“There’s no right or wrong, success or failure.
I don’t look at things as black or white. My life won’t be a series of either/ors—musician or actor, rock or country, straitlaced or rebellious, this or that, yes or no. The real choices in life aren’t that simple,” once said by Miley Cyrus (Miley Cyrus 2). Destiny Hope Cyrus now known as Miley Cyrus is just like any other nineteen year old girl now a days. She is a small town girl who grew up in Franklin, Tennessee who has wanted to be a singer since she was a little girl. No one in this world is perfect, everyone has their ups and downs, but in the end they are just being who they are.
To begin with, Miley Cyrus is a young woman that has a very successful career since the age of nine. At age 12, Miley’s first appearance was on her father’s show, Doc (Truitt, Warren 1). Her dad was an actor which influenced Miley to do the same. The nickname Miley came from her father because ever since she was a baby she has always been full of smiles (Miley Cyrus 2). Miley’s father is on the show Hannah Montana and plays the role of her father. This is all important because it explains what kind of childhood Miley had.
Also it shows how Miley has always wanted to be an actor and singer. People should use this as a way to see that when someone really wants something then they have to know what you want and set your mind to it. Miley’s life shows it can be possible to live the dreams and goals you want when living a normal childhood. There are many different events and awards that Miley has received. Next, there were many different things Miley has accomplished that are remarkable in her life so far.
In 2003 Miley was in the movie Tim Burto’s fish when she was only nine years old (Miley Cyrus 1)! This is one of the biggest events that happen to Miley and started making her known and show people what talents she had. In 2005 when Miley was only 12 she was casted on the show Hannah Montana. (Miley Cyrus 1) That show still comes out with new episodes and has millions of people watching and still watching after six years. When Miley’s first episode aired there were over 5 million viewers (Miley – Cyrus 2)! It is amazing how many people watch her. People even started buying Miley stuff for their children. For example there are bed sets, dolls, and some people even dress up as her for Halloween.
This is significant because most people her age wouldn’t be able to do the things she has done with her talents. It’s nice to see all the good things she has done with her life instead of all the negatives the media loves to show about her. Furthermore, no one is perfect so yes Miley has done so things that she is not so proud of. In April of 2008 there was pictures of Miley found “almost kissing” one of her female friends (Miley Cyrus 4). She says it wasn’t like what people were saying, they were only messing around like any other teens do.
There were several pictures of Miley only in her underwear and swim suit spread all over the internet by someone who hacked into her Gmail account (Miley Cyrus 4). There are many people that have pictures in their bathing suit in their g-mail accounts. The music video she came out with in 2009 of Party in the U.S.A was judged by the way she was dancing on a pole and what she was wearing (Miley Cyrus 4).
Miley was just dancing like a normal teenager would and just having fun not trying to be judged. This is important to a person’s image because since most people don’t know her personally just judge her on what they see and hear about her. Even though most of the things that are spread throughout the media are just rumors, which is what grabs people’s attention to read them and most people believe the stories they read. It affects Miley life because those pictures are on the internet forever and when she is brought up those images will be thought of. This also affects her career since most parents don’t want their young children watching those types of things even though she just trying to live her life to the fullest just like the rest of us. To sum it all up, being yourself is most important even if people look down on you for doing so.
People should judge a person on what they see and hear about them. Miley’s life is not like what people say it is; she is just being like any other young adult. The only thing different is that her life gets aired on TV and in magazines. It is kind of like when people say don’t judge a book by its cover. People need to see more of the good side of everyone’s situation instead of the bad.
Just like when people say the glass is half empty; it’s more like the glass is half full. Works cited “Miley Cyrus.” 2005-2011.BuddyTV. 31 Aug. 2011.
