With only three weeks left before 2013 finally pushes to a close, one name that has certainly stuck on everyone’s mind this year is that of Miley Cyrus. The pop singer undoubtedly made headlines this 2013, from her VMA performance to her split from fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. What else did Miley Cyrus do this year to make it to the news?
The year started out perfectly normal for Miley Cyrus. She vowed to quit smoking back in January, but to no avail. She’s since been caught with joints, booze and molly. Before the excessive tweets about “twerking,” the former Disney star had been busy posting photos of herself, along with her many dogs. She was also on good terms back then with Hunger Games fiancé, Liam Hemsworth.
Things were pretty boring until Miley decided to chop off her hair and get it bleached. Twitter exploded in a matter of hours, where photos of Cyrus and her new hairdo were compared to that of Justin Bieber, Niall Horan, Tom Felton and Ellen Degeneres.
After the excessive tweets of her latest hairstyle and Chanel clothing, Cyrus introduced the latest dance craze, called “twerking.” It became even more of a hit after she had performed opposite Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards last August 25, 2013. Everyone talked non-stop about her racy performance and clothing that day. In fact, Harry Styles and Paris Hilton were two celebrities who copied Miley’s attire at the VMA’s for Halloween.
Following the scandalous performance, half-naked photos of Miley started to emerge online. The magazine covers followed suit, including those of her naked in the pool for Rolling Stone magazine. One celebrity to the next had a few scathing words to say about Miley’s latest antics, but that didn’t affect the singer one bit.
Adding to Miley’s success this year, were her two famous music videos and songs from her “Bangerz” album namely “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball.” The latter video had much of the talk, given Cyrus was completely naked swinging from a wrecking ball. Days after the video was released, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus’ representatives announced the split of the one-year-engaged couple.
Yet, the split didn’t faze Miley Cyrus because she continued to work her way to the top. Thanks to her crazy antics, “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” were named the most popular videos of the year, and she had even ranked number one on Yahoo’s top search for 2013. Billy Ray’s daughter managed to beat the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian.
With regards to her fashion sense, Time magazine awarded Miley as this year’s best and worst dressed. If Ariana Grande was named the Mariah Carey of this generation, the Canadian duo, Tegan and Sara, had crowned Miley as the Madonna of today’s generation.
As for the latest on the “Bangerz” singer, she was recently spotted “twerking” over Santa Claus at the recently held Jingle Ball Concert in Los Angeles. With less than three weeks left before the end of the year, Miley Cyrus is sure to provide her fans with more outrageous and jaw-dropping acts.
