    Thumbs up Miley Cyrus: Sweet Sixteen

    Happy birthday to Miley Cyrus, who turns 16 on November 23. The teenage superstar rose to fame on the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, which debuted in 2006 and has so far spawned number one albums, sell-out tours, and lucrative clothing and jewellery lines. But Miley's success goes much further than a Disney tie-in - the teenager was recently named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World and ranks on Forbes' list of Top Twenty Superstar Earners under the age of 25, with estimated earnings of $25 million in the last year. With another album and big-screen movie on the way, Miley is here to stay.

    Miley was born Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23, 1992. Thankfully, she legally changed her name to her childhood nickname Miley (as in Smiley) earlier this year.

    In late 2005, Miley and her father, former country star Billy Ray Cyrus (of Achy Breaky Heart fame), signed on to star in the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana, in which Miley plays a school girl who lives a normal life by day, but secretly dons a blonde wig to become pop star Hannah Montana by night.



    Miley and dad Billy Ray Cyrus fool around on the set of Hannah Montana in 2006. Celebrity guests on the show have included Dolly Parton, Donny Osmond, Heather Locklear, Brooke Shields, Corbin Bleu, Ray Romano and Larry David.

    The show's success took many by surprise, not least Miley herself. She became a global tween sensation as Hannah Montana aired in over 50 countries. A big-screen film is due in 2009.

    Before long, Miley was keen to be known not just as Hannah Montana. She sold out arenas across America with her Best of Both Worlds tour, where she performed part of the show in a blonde wig as her Disney character, and part of the show as herself.

    Miley cuddled up to that other Disney princess, Minnie Mouse, at the premiere for High School Musical 2 in 2007. Is it just us or is that dress a little too sexy for a 14-year-old?



    Disneyland threw an early birthday bash for their biggest star, as Mickey Mouse and 5,000 fans sung Happy Birthday to the singer at a special party attended by celebrities and competition winners from around the world. Happy birthday, Miley!

    Before long, Miley was winning awards for her own work. Here she is at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards in LA.

    At 15, Miley was invited to present a song performance at the Academy Awards, an honour that many superstars 10 years her senior, such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, have yet to achieve. The teenager looked the part in a red floor-length Valentino dress.

    That designer Valentino gown may have spurred on the 15-year-old to take an interest in fashion, because suddenly she was shunning the Disney gear and donning mini-skirts, killer heels...

    ...and red-hot backless ensembles. There's no doubt that Miley has a confidence way beyond her years, and she really knows how to work a pose on the red carpet.

    By now it was clear at the teenager was confident holding her own in live prime-time interviews watched by millions, such as this one with Jay Leno, or hosting awards ceremonies, such as the CMT Music Awards in Nashville.

    She may only be in her teens, but Miley is a popular paparazzi target - here she is getting snapped outside the Ivy restaurant in Los Angeles. But she has dismissed concerns that she may end up like former child star Britney Spears, claiming that her close family and her faith will keep her from going off the rails.

    But Miley's rise to fame hasn't been without scandal. She was criticised by the parents of fans for posing semi-clad on the cover of Vanity Fair in April 2008, and issued an apology to fans: "I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologise to my fans who I care so deeply about."

    Miley's rumoured boyfriend is 20-year-old underwear model Justin Gaston, though all squeaky-clean Miley will say on that matter is: "He's a singer, he's really cute, and he's nice, and he's a Christian, and I really like that.

    Now that Miley has reached 16, she seems happy to cultivate a more racy image, such as with this pose with Katy Perry at the MTV Europe Music Awards, after the I Kissed A Girl singer claimed the fancied the teenager.
