I’m sure Miley Cyrus is the most controversial star of 2013. The Disney actress who became a household name and teen idol via Hannah Montana decided that this is it – it’s time to break free from the good girl image and prove that she can’t really be tamed! I am not sure if her sudden change of image is something that she planned for a long time, or if this is caused by her break-up with then-boyfriend (now husband) Liam Hemsworth or she simply wanted to stay relevant in the game, but Bangerz made me appreciate her as an artist although yes, she went overboard with the Robin Thicke twerking with tongue action scene. With Miley’s new character as Ashley O in Black Mirror and the release of her new album, let’s take a look back in the Bangerz era – but nah, you won’t be seeing her sweet song “Adore You” or that infamous but emotional “Wrecking Ball.” I’m want to feature the dance songs that are good for parties!
26 albums, 159 tracks
I could spend hours and hours writing about Miley Cyrus. She has always fascinated me and I have wondered what will go through the head of this magical, changing and disdainful being that in her day was the prodigy child par excellence, loved by the whole world. The ex-queen of the Disney world lived a reality in her childhood and adolescence that no other child has ever lived and this made her mature (and also rebel) at early ages, in order to get her own voice heard. To her long-lived 26 years, it seems wise to me, able to give you any advice by putting an insult in the middle of the sentence and ending it with her horny laughter. I would not be surprised if a person who has lived in the spotlight since she was born, has progressed more quickly than the rest of the mortals of her same age, having lived much more (in any imaginable sense) than someone who doubles her in age and giving it a kind of "superior" mentality and way of thinking, and luckily, in a good way. She reached a point where she got tired of having to give explanations and the rebellion and the party have been her banner during the last years. Can’t be tamed left no doubt about the indomitable spirit that the world had created for Miley, and it was fully corroborated with the controversial Bangerz, with which this girl from Tennessee earned a do-what-I-want-and-I-don’t-give-a-fuck title. Many would want to do this too. Open to to all types of criticism (which she doesn’t give a damn, to be honest), Miley has been doing what she wants for many years. And it has been with the years when I finally believe that I have ended up catching the ''Miley Cyrus strategy'': to each album, a new facet of hers, a new character. But taken to the extreme, no half measures. Miley is a cheeky girl, we have taught her to be like that, I can’t imagine her doing what Lady Gaga does, which is to offer different roles of her personality but without these having just conquered Gaga's own spirit. Miley lets herself be completely absorbed by the character she chooses for her project, adopting a new being. From queen teen pop and soft disobedient rock with the most general sounds of these genres in their beginnings, evolving towards the most extreme rebellion in the form of sexual bombs and twerk with Bangerz, to be the most experimental artist, smeared with glitter and psychedelia with Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, to finish reincarnating in a half-puritan and mature cowgirl that returned to its country origins with Younger Now. Nobody knows how to jump from one character to another as disparate as Miley in such a short time and without offering an evolutionary process to get used to the viewer. But, then ... Who is Miley Cyrus? Of all these interpreted roles, what would be the protagonist? Or does she show us a bit of them in each of her projects? It seems that the answer is coming with She is coming, the first EP of a trilogy (She is here and She is everything) that together will form what is expected to be the artist's masterpiece, She is: Miley Cyrus.
Miley Cyrus Manifests The Perfect Niche & Amalgamates From Her Previous Forms on New ‘She Is Coming’ Album.
I can’t believe how prolific Miley Cyrus is proving to be changing in and out of characters through each album, as She Is Coming is such a shockingly tasteful merging of her personas from her last albums yet resembles its own embodiment. I guess the fact the she is a former Disney Channel actor from her childhood should’ve given me a hint of her chameleon like potential but it’s so refreshing when the morphing of artistry is unfolding right before the eyes. It’s unfortunate that we only get 19 minutes of this country-infused She Is Coming as the EP consists of 6 tracks because it’s over in a flash and you feel like there’s something incomplete about the totality of the character she embodies. Miley Cyrus also confirmed that there will be 2 more EP’s to follow up She Is Coming, called She Is Here, and She Is Everything due to drop throughout this year, 2019. As I was saying she does find a nice & trill consolidation between her last personas and a new one as well singing “I’m a little drunk, I know it, I’ma get high as hell. I’m a little bit unholy, so what, so is everyone else.” It’s been almost a decade since we were smacked with her first major hit machine “Wrecking Ball”, as it was in 2013 when Miley Cyrus took a different route in the music industry inviting the Britney Spears representing Larry Rudolph to be her manager as the authentication of deal with RCA Records surfaced. With She Is Coming Miley Cyrus continues to carry that torch with RCA and enlisted hot producers including Jasper Sheff, King Henry, and Mark Ronson who also produced “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” dropping back in November 2018. Miley Cyrus also enlisted Pluss, RZA, Andrew Wyatt, and Mike Will Made It for She Is Coming as well.
As at some 7-8 years ago, if anyone had told me I would ever like Miley Cyrus or her music, I would have argued it. Although it wasn't like I loathed her or anything of such, I was just indifferent about her persona and her music generally. This was due to the fact that I already had an image of her that I created in my head that wouldn't make me like her. All these were set to change in the year 2013, when I stumbled on a movie titled "So Undercover" which she starred in, where she acted as an undercover agent and I actually liked how she portrayed the role she played in the movie, this gave me reasons to be open minded with her. Fortunately, that was the year she released her fourth studio album, which she titled Bangerz. The day I finally got the album, I was just done with slotting the Disc in to the player when I heard a knock at my apartment door. I quickly clicked on play and in turn, mistakenly clicked on the repeat button because I wanted to get the door. When I opened the door, it was a female friend that was there, with tears all over her face. "He broke up with me. He has left me." She said amidst the tears and I pulled her into my arms, hoping to comfort her but this even made it worse as the tears became louder and more uncontrollable, I finally got her to calm down after much persuasion. All that while, she was in my arms, sobbing quietly as the first track off the album played repeatedly. The song title I later found out to be "Adore", was coincidentally, the perfect song for the mood at that very time. We stood there, holding each other for almost half an hour. We later loosened the embrace, I then laid on the bed and beckoned on her to come lay her head on my chest as I held her in comfort. I knew better not to ask the details of what really transpired between her and her now ex-boyfriend because that would only trigger another round of tears and wet nostrils alongside sniffles. We just remained in that position and listened to the song repeatedly. With every listen, the song became even more suitable for the mood. That song "Adore" successfully changed my perception of Miley Cyrus, I went from being someone that was indifferent about her to being one of her biggest fans and "Adore" became my favourite song from her and the album, even before I got to listen to the other tracks on the album. I later found out from the girl that she also fell in love with the song and the artiste after that day. She said it became her go to song whenever she wanted to relive the memories of the relationship with that guy that broke her heart. Up until few months ago, I still teased her by sending the song to her through WhatsApp and as intended, it brought back memories for her. Bangerz debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 having a total first-week sales of 270,000 copies and was the third-highest opening week sales for a female artist in the year 2013 coming just behind Beyoncé's Beyoncé album and Katy Perry's Prism. The album also won Miley Cyrus her first Grammy Awards nominations and it was in the Best Pop Vocal Album category.
After years of being a Disney Star and living a double life, as well as being a bit of a pop (and pop punk) icon, Miley Cyrus took a break so that she could come back at us hard. She wanted to make it clear to us that she is a grown woman and she should be treated as such. She released her album Bangerz and did just that. Her album brings together all of her old sounds and styles and mixes them with new ones. This album was a big reason people were saying that she had gone crazy and was acting out; however, her licking a wrecking ball was a symbol for other things she was probably licking but showing that would be added to a much different website. This album was quite honestly a turning point for the young artist and the youth of today will never be the same since it came out.
Miley Cyrus is a pop sensation. Cyrus auditioned for Hannah Montana at just age 11 and went on to play the lead role for 4 series. This was the role that catapulted her to fame, as the show was very popular with tweens (this was arguably the golden age of Disney, with stars like the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez all starring in Disney Channel shows/films around the same time). During the peak of Hannah Montana, Cyrus released an album titled Breakout. The album was released on the 22nd of July 2008 and peaked at number 1 on the Billboard 100. The album had 3 singles on it, and Cyrus completed a Breakout tour.
