Miley: The Talk of the World
Miley made a drastic turn in her life towards 2012/13. She officially let go of all her Hannah Montana self and embraced her true self. By her own words "a bad b****h".
Miley did some hot photo-shoots for Cosmopolitan, V and Elle magazines and many more. She also did many more photoshoots and cover shoots for magazines, tabloids, adverts, billboards and what not. All of a sudden Miley was everywhere.
Miley Cyrus took things to a whole new level with her music video for 'We Can't Stop' from her latest album Bangerz. There Miley was seen wearing sultry dresses and twerking. Twerking had befallen the Earth several decades ago, but the world got to know about it when Miley did it. So the video received a lot of positive and negative reviews which only made the video more and more popular. Currently it has 242 million views on YouTube.
Miley's biggest move was through the music video for the song 'Wrecking Ball', where she was fully naked and swinging on a wrecking ball. The world was shook, but Miley was not. Despite waves and waves of negativity Miley stood by what she did. She explains the brains behind these actions in her latest documentary named "Miley: The Movement". However, Wrecking Ball went on to receive 250 million views on YouTube.
Miley The Scandalous
Miley did not stop with We Can't Stop or Wrecking Ball. She went on to do some 'accidentally nude' photographs with the famous photographer Terry Richardson. Several images released in Terry Richardson's Tumblr page showed Miley in some nude photographs.
It is very much clear her innocent, small-town Hannah Montana days are done and dusted and she wants to rebrand herself as who she really wants to be. In her documentary she commented that this is not a phase, but rather a transition in her life and career. She wants to be among the stars. She wants to grow up. She wants to make history.
