2011 marks Miley Cyrus’ last year as a teen. The Nashville singer, songwriter, actress, and author will turn 19 on Wednesday, November 23rd.
Cyrus is not your typical celebrity teenager. Fame came at an early age for the outgoing songstress. After gaining acting and singing notoriety as Hanna Montana, she slipped out from underneath her famous father’s shadow, to become the star that she is today.
It hasn’t been an easy road for Cyrus. Rumors and controversy have dominated her past; from twitter mishaps regarding her boyfriend, photo issues that included dancing with a stripper pole and posing almost nude for a magazine; and tattoo’s at a young age.
Just recently, weight gain claims in the media, have lashed out at her and she has fired back, by posting on Twitter, a disturbing photo of an emancipated woman with this quote-‘By calling girls like me fat this is what you’re doing to other people. i love MYSELF & if you could say the same’.
Fans have rallied in support of the teen and it looks like she will be moving ahead full steam at the next fork of the road-whatever that may be.
