What with her hectic schedule growing up – between filming for Disney Channel, honing her craft of singing, and meeting and greeting fans – it’s no wonder that Cyrus was homeschooled. Also, the celebrity that comes when you’re young, is well, difficult to handle in a normal environment.
Particularly when it comes to school. She ended up graduating ahead of many of the people in her class due to her schedule, and, with the help of tutors, this was made so much easier. Cyrus is similar to others like Hailey Bieber and Taylor Swift.
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.
She Has a Cameo in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”!
Okay, if you weren’t really paying attention at the end of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” you totally would’ve missed Miley Cyrus’s cameo! The director of the film, James Gunn, thought her voice would be perfect for the short clip (seriously, it lasts for two seconds, it’s just one line!), and liked her energy.
Because we missed it in cinemas, we went back to find the clip and we had a “d’oh” moment! Cyrus voices Mainframe, who, in the comics, is a version of “the Vision” in an alternative universe. Let’s see where the multi-verse takes us then, eh?
She’s Also an Artist!
Not only is Miley musically gifted and a good actress, she also dabbles in the art world! The pop star debuted a collection of sculptures during New York Fashion Week in 2014, titled “Dirty Hippie.” Her art is psychedelic and rather out there, and not without statements - with her opinions on fast food, and capitalism showcased in each of her rather interesting pieces.
We aren’t sure how much it’s going to sell for, but critics labeled her art as ‘wild’ - which is kind of a compliment, especially since the singer is known for her track “Can’t Be Tamed.”
