Miley was a cute little girl when she won millions of teens' hearts with her performance as Hannah Montana. Even her songs were pretty cute to dance to. However, with the growing age, Miley turned wild and to get over her cute Disney girl image and look all grown up, the singer has done various antics which always keeps her in the news, both for good and bad reasons.
Gone are the days when parents allowed their kids to watch Miley Cyrus. She is now extremely bold and only caters to the adult audience, thanks to her risque acts and style statement.
Miley Cyrus is bold and doesn't shy away from surprising everyone including her fans with her eyebrow raising performances. Be it twerking on the stage with Robin Thicke or lighting up a mysterious hand rolled cigarette on the stage which appeared to be a joint, Miley has been making news for bad reasons as well.
On the 22nd birthday of Miley Cyrus, here are some of the controversies of the star which keeps her in the limelight for wrong reasons as well. Take a look...
Her recent tour had been very controversial. Be it her costumes, her dance moves or the antic of spitting on the cheering crowd or wearing fake butts, Miley has been making headlines every day during the tour!
Can't Be Tamed
Miley answered the world long before when she started making controversies at a very young age. In the single "Can't Be Tamed", Miley tried show her evolution. "I think it definitely shows a change of what people remember me as, but it's not trying to not be me," she told MTV News of the coming-of-age clip. "The lighting is different, the outfit may be different, but what you see in me is the same since I was 11-years-old on Hannah Montana."
Miley came to bad light when she was 15 and posed topless for Vanity Fair. She received an endless amount of backlash for the provocative spread, which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovit. Miley apologised for it and said, I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed."
The Pole Dance
Long before Miley started twerking and doing sleazy moves on the stage, she then 16-year-old performed on "Party in the USA" at the Teen Choice Awards where she danced like a stripper on the pole.
For the Vogue Germany magazine, Miley tried the Madonna inspired look, but topless in most of the pics!
Free The Nipple
Supporting Free The Nipple campaign, Miley went completely topless at the after-party of Alexander Wang, flashing her ample tattoos and holding a cigarette in hand. The only thing she was wearing was nipple tassles!
Going topless became a new trend for Miley. She started posing topless a lot of times on magazine spreads. Rolling Stone is just one example which not just showed her topless but with some dirty expressions of the wet and wild star as well.
This is one of the wildest and boldest moments of Miley Cyrus. At VMAs last year, Miley not just twerked but did a sleazy performance with Robin Thicke.
Smoking On The Stage
As her father Billy Ray Cyrus once said, "I just think that Miley loves entertaining people," we think he was right. Miley lit a mysterious hand rolled cigarette which appeared to be a joint on the stage of MTV EMAs in 2013.
Pig Pedicure Backlash
Cyrus recently posted pictures of pig Bubba Sue getting a pedicure on Instagram. The 'Wrecking Ball' singer has been bashed by many of her fans for giving her pig a pedicure, saying that the chemicals might harm the animal.
Bare It All For V
Miley went completely naked on the 91st edition of V Magazine - titled The Rebel Issue recently. "I'm a lot more than someone who just goes and shakes her ass onstage. I think it's kind of funny to mess with people and rile them up, because I'm actually the most chill person and it's just funny to watch the world get out of their minds over things that are so irrelevant and don't matter," Miley said in the interview with the magazine.
