We have all wondered how old is Miley Cyrus. According to her official Wikipedia page at the moment of writing this article She’s actually born or 23 November, 1992 in Tennessee. She was a child in Franklin, on her family’s 500 acre farm. Not sure of what would happen to her life, her name is thought to come from her parents’ thinking she would achieve great things. As she was smiled so much as an infant, she was given the nickname ‘Smiley’. Cyrus is not the only one in her family to enter the entertainment business, with four of her siblings going into entertainment as well.
When she was just eight years old, after going to the theatre with her father, Billy Ray, she knew that was what she wanted to do:
This is what I want to do, daddy. I want to be an actress.
Miley Cyrus was only 14 years old when she had her first hit. This was in 2006 with Hannah Montana, a program following a teenage schoolgirl who is also a pop star. Although only auditioning for a side role, she got a response asking her to audition for the lead. This was her first big breakthrough on television. Hannah Montana is ranked with the best series on cable.
Soon after the second season of Hannah Montana had finished showing, she then signed a four-album record deal with Hollywood Records, which is also owned by Disney. After selling 326,000 copies in its first week, the Recording Industry Association of America awarded it as ‘triple-platinum’. Since then, she has also released other albums, although them not being as successful as her first.
In 2007, she toured in United States and Canada, with the Jonas Brothers, Everlife and Aly & AJ to promote the joint album. Here, it only took minutes for tickets to be sold out.
