Happy birthday, Miley Cyrus! The world-renowned pop artist best known for her childhood role as “Hannah Montana” turns 23 today! The daughter of country music star Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley was born in Franklin, Tennessee where she began acting at a very young age, appearing on television series “Doc” and a small role in Tim Burton’s “Big Fish” in the early 2000s. In 2004 Miley landed the lead role on Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” paving the way for her entertainment career. Her 2007 album “Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus” launched her “Best of Both Worlds” tour which sold out in record time even warranting a tour extension which added 14 more dates. Miley grew farther away from her subsequent Hannah Montana years and began writing and recording edgier pop songs, generating both praise and criticisms from her fans, particularly during her memorable performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Happy 23rd, Miley!
