Miley Ray Cyrus is an American actress and singer-songwriter. Cyrus is known for starring as Miley Stewart/"Hannah Montana" in the television series Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel.

Cyrus became a sensation after Hannah Montana debuted in March 2006. Following the success of the show, in October 2006, a soundtrack CD was released in which she sang eight songs from the show. In December 2007, she was ranked #17 in the list of Forbes Top Twenty Superstar Earners under the age of 25 with an annual earning of US$3.5 million.[4] As of December 2007, she is working on a movie spin-off of Hannah Montana, titled Hannah Montana: The Movie which release date has been recently moved up to April 10, 2009.

Cyrus's solo music career began with the release of her debut album, Meet Miley Cyrus on June 23, 2007. Her second album, entitled Breakout was released on July 22, 2008, which is Cyrus's first album that does not involve the Hannah Montana franchise. Both albums debuted and peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200.In the main article in the September 2008 issue of Seventeen, of which Miley was on the cover, she stated herself as a comedian.

In 2008, Cyrus was listed among artists and entertainers as one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World

Cyrus became interested in acting at age nine when the family briefly lived in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Her first acting role was as a guest star on her father's television series Doc, in which she played a girl named Kylie. In 2003, she played "Young Ruthie" in Tim Burton's Big Fish and was credited as Destiny Cyrus. She was also featured in Rhonda Vincent's music video for "If Heartaches Have Wings", and appeared on Colgate Country Showdown with her father, who was hosting the program

Walt Disney Records released the first Hannah Montana soundtrack, on October 24, 2006. The soundtrack included eight of the songs that Cyrus performed as Hannah Montana. Cyrus also signed a four-album major record deal with Hollywood Records for her own albums. The album was later re-released twice - a Holiday Edition featuring Cyrus's cover of "Rockin' around the Christmas Tree" and a Special Edition featuring "Nobody's Perfect". Cyrus also opened for The Cheetah Girls in 2006, performing on 20 dates of their 39-city tour.

On June 26, 2007, exactly eight months after the release of the first soundtrack, Cyrus released a double album, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus. The first disc served as the second Hannah Montana soundtrack, while the second disc was Cyrus's debut solo album as herself. She wrote eight of the ten songs, credited by her birth name Destiny Hope Cyrus. The single "See You Again" became Cyrus's first song to enter the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100.

Just over a year later, Cyrus released her second studio album under her own name. Breakout is the first Miley Cyrus album that has no connection with the Hannah Montana franchise. The album's first single, "7 Things", became her highest charting single

In May 2008, Hugh Hefner made news when he offered a magazine pictorial to 15 year old Miley. Hefner said she was a "pretty lady" but would have to wait until she was 18 to appear in the magazine
