We all know Miley Cyrus, the (not-so) sweet girl from Tennessee. Miley had been a child star for a long time before blooming into the controversy making machine she is today. You might remember her role in the Disney TV series, Hannah Montana. She was a role model and kids were wearing blond wigs and copying her outfits. And then she grew up.
We’ve all seen her mature from the blonde, innocent Hannah Montana to the phenomenal wrecking ball singer she has become. From her long brown hair to her blonde pixie cut, from dating Liam Hemsworth to Patrick Schwarzenegger. We’ve had a glimpse of her heartbreaks and triumphs. Now, let’s see all the scandalous moments Miley has had throughout the years we’ve been watching her grow.
1. Topless 15 year old Miley
This was the first controversial moment of Miley Cyrus. At the age of 15, she posed nude for the June 2008 issue of Vanity Fair magazine. This issue received plenty of negative feedback, and it also ruined the innocent Hannah Montana image. Obviously, Hannah Montana was a big hit those days, and parents didn’t want to see their 8 year olds idolizing a teenage girl that poses nude.
2. VMA performance
Yes, who can forget the VMAs. She was performing her hit song We Can’t Stop. While wearing a fury bustier, she was twerking and grinding all over the place. Robin Thicke was singing his hit Blurred Lines and then all of a sudden Miley Cyrus came and twerked all over Robin Thicke. Celebrities who were at the VMAs were not impressed with Miley’s moves. Even the people watching it on TV were shocked and at the same time confused of what she was doing.
3. Wrecking Ball music video
Cyrus was swinging on a wrecking ball while she was naked. Yes, naked. She received mixed feedback from the public. But who cares if she’s naked in the video? The song became a hit and is very meaningful – in it she describes all the pain that she has gone through in one of her previous relationships. Some say that it was dedicated to her ex fiancé Liam Hemsworth, but then again she didn’t confirm this rumor. None the less, this still counts as one of Miley’s most scandalous moments.
4. MTV EMAs
While Miley was accepting the award for her hit song Wrecking Ball, she opened up her purse and pulled out something that resembles a blunt; she then lit it up and smoked it on stage. Just typical Miley smoking joints everywhere. She didn’t care whether people would judge her or not. She also said that she doesn’t care what the media would say about her because she doesn’t search herself on Google.
5. Giving a lap dancing to an old man
Adam Shankman, the producer of the movie The Last Song, was given a lap dance by a 16 year old girl. Yep, Miley gave a lap dance to a 44 year old dude. This was probably one of the most inappropriate actions she did. According to sources, this happened at a party for the movie The Last Song. The worst part is that there were children present, so as you could have expected – disgusted parents left the party with their kids. I mean, who wouldn’t feel disgusted? She was 16 years old at the time and the producer was like her dad.
6. Mocking Asians
Miley and some of her friends were caught taking pictures making scanty-eyes; somehow it is a gesture to mock Asians. According to sources, The Chinese American Organization took action and asked for an official apology of the music star. Miley tried to ease the tensions saying that she was just making a joke with her friends. This photo received a lot of negative feedback. The funny thing is that this is actually the least shocking news about Miley. Most of her scandalous moments were a lot more… well, let’s say perverted.
This certainly won’t be the last we heard about Miley. Until her next scandal, xoxo!
