Internet access is worth its weight in gold, and we’d wager that the majority of internet users are either Googling something or Youtubing something. Also Instagramming. But let’s stick to the first two. As soon as something debuts on Vevo and the like, you just sit with your popcorn and watch the views stack up.
For Cyrus, she probably didn’t think her “Wrecking Ball” video would become Youtube’s fastest to 100 million views clip! The song, but more so, the video, racked up views because well, Miley was nearly naked swinging on well, a wrecking ball. Publicity? Check.
She Has How Many Tattoos?
Did you know there have been articles written purely dedicated to Miley’s array of body art? Seventeen released an article that gives the full details on all of her tattoos. Big, small, abstract, or realistic, it’s rumored that the singer has 25 or so. There might be more, we just haven’t seen them all. If you catch our drift.
Anyway, from motorcycles to the running script, roses, and rock ’n’ roll, as well as some symbols found on walls in a cave, she’s got them all! We’re sure that over the next few decades of her career she’ll be inking herself more times too!
She Dated Justin Gaston
Time to well, turn back the time clocks for this one! A little blast from the past, back in 2008, when side fringes and band t-shirts were the norms, comes one of Miley’s ex-boyfriends. At the time, her relationship with Justin Gaston was a little controversial, owing to the fact Cyrus was just 15. Gaston was 20.
Gaston was a model at the time but then went on to sing and write songs. Also another fun fact: he was the love interest in Taylor Swift’s massive hit “Love Story.” He’s now married with two kids!
Her Godmother is Dolly Parton
So there is no blood relation here, though you’d think it would be possible with the big smiles and big vocals! The reason Dolly Parton, the ‘Queen of Country’, became Cyrus’s godmother is actually because she knew Billy Ray Cyrus quite well! Parton had worked for Cyrus during the early 1990s, and the pair struck up a friendship.
So there was a reason for Dolly Parton’s cameo on “Hannah Montana” after all - life imitates art! Or the other way around. Anyway, we love their special bond, and we adore their duet of Parton’s hit song “Jolene.”
She Took a Homeless Man to the VMAs
After meeting Miley Cyrus, the once homeless man is probably now no longer homeless, but at the time it caused quite a stir at the VMAs! Miley Cyrus rocked up to the awards with a, uh, unknown individual on her arm. The story was that she’d met the young homeless man (who had gorgeous blonde hair by the way), at an LA homeless shelter.
When Cyrus won the award, she urged him to go on stage and accept it for her. He used her platform to talk about homelessness in the ‘City of Angels’, which received a lot more attention than any sign on any street corner. Props, Miley.
