Miley Cyrus - born Destiny Hope Cyrus - is an American teen actress and singer. She shot to fame for her role as Hannah Montana in the Disney show of the same name and was encouraged to pursue a career in music by her godmother Dolly Parton. In 2007, she signed to Hollywood Records to pursue a solo pop career. Since then, she's embarked on several world tours, and released three successful albums. Her best-selling single, Party In The U.S.A, was written by Brit sensation Jessie J. However, it hasn't always been plain sailing for the star - Miley hit the headlines over drug allegations, causing a very public rift between her and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. She is also the goddaughter of country singer Dolly Parton. Miley dated Nick Jonas for two years before dating model Justin Gaston. In 2009, after meeting on the set of The Last Song, Miley started an on/off relationship with her co-star Liam Hemsworth. Despite becoming engaged in June 2012, the pair split in September 2013 after Miley's controversial performance with Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV VMA's. Despite this, the pair rekindled in 2016 and their engagement is back on.
