Miley Cyrus Turns 18 - A Miley Retrospective

23 November 2010

It feels like she's been around forever, but today Miley Cyrus has finally turned 18. Yes that's right, the most famous teenage girl in the world is finally legal, and to celebrate this momentous occasion we've decided to take a look at Miley Cyrus' life so far.

Miley has always been desperate to grow up and be seen as an adult, and now that she is legally an adult (although she still can't drink until she's 21!) it looks like Miley is probably going to get even wilder.

Check out Miley's journey from cute child star to a sexy pop singer.

Hannah Montana

Miley burst onto the scene in 2006 as the 14 year old star of the Disney show Hannah Montana. She played Miley Stewart, the cute, fresh faced, all American teen who led a secret double life as a famous pop singer. The show was wholesome, and so was her image.

Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas

Miley's first famous boyfriend was Jonas Brother Nick Jonas. They dated for two years, and were the ultimate famous teen couple. They were a pretty innocent and boring couple really! This relationship definitely cemented the two of them as the most famous teens in the world.

Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston

Miley's next relationship was with Justin Gaston, when she was 16 and he was 20. This was probably the first big sign that Miley was desperate to grow up and act like an adult. What on earth does a 20 year old see in a 16 year old? Well Miley was famous and he wasn't, so that might have had something to do with it. The pair were together for nine months.

Miley Cyrus Controversial Raunchy Photos

Apart from the older boyfriends, Miley also became well known for her risque photos. Her naked Vanity Fair shoot, where she wore only a sheet, was massively controversial. Was it child porn or just an innocent photo? Miley didn't think it was a big deal, and it was one of the first steps towards her big image change. And then there were the raunchy photos taken on a webcam, which came out when a hacker managed to get into her Gmail account.

Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth

Miley's latest boyfriend was Australian Liam Hemsworth. They met when they starred in The Last Song together. They dated for about a year, broke up briefly, got back together and are now officially over.

Miley Cyrus Can't Be Tamed

And then it happened. The image change. Miley had gradually gotten sexier, but when she released 'Can't Be Tamed' Miley was suddenly sexier and wearing a lot less clothes. You won't catch Miley wearing pants on stage these days, instead its strictly leotards or tiny dresses.

Miley Cyrus Can't Be Tamed

So happy 18th birthday Miley Cyrus. We've already heard rumours about how you've celebrated, including hiring out a nightclub so you and your mum can show off your synchronised dance moves and kissing your possible new boyfriend Avan Jogia in front of everyone. We hope there's more Miley controversies in the future!
