There was a significant period of Miley Cyrus' career where it seemed everywhere you turned, she was doing something that was provocative, talking about loving marijuana and getting her drink on.
But Cyrus has turned a corner as of late. She's cut out drugs, she's cleaning up her overall image and overall many people think she has never looked better. Which may make her past, including stripping it all off for the music video "Wrecking Ball", all the more embarrassing. Not to mention all of her outfits that were inspired by drugs. Cyrus may also be gorgeous, but nobody looks good with the amount of liquor that she had in her body for one of our entries below.
We also include her beef with the paparazzi, and in particular when they follow her on the beach. Though the positive of that, is you get to stare at her in a bikini! That's far from the only sexy moment on our list though.
We also have 8 photos that help signify Miley's new transition. Including photos of her showing off her hard work at the gym, her very recent Instagram photo that has exploded online, and all the other assets that make Miley one of the most popular celebrities in the world.
16 Doesn't - Getting On Santa's Naughty List
There are several ways to try and celebrate Christmas. For many professional musicians, that involves taking to the stage at various events to try and bring in some cheer. Judging by the above photo, it's clear Cyrus is one of them.
But this photo and night would definitely land Cyrus on the naughty list, especially because prior to going on stage, Cyrus admitted that she was absolutely hammered and was almost definitely going to throw up on stage. While we aren't too sure on if she was able to accomplish that "goal" or not, we're sure her fans have a much better memory of her performance that night than she does.
We hope that being afraid she might lose her lunch all over the stage isn't a fear that Miley still has when she is attempting to woo the crowd.
15 Does - Her Showing Off Her Physique (And Flexibility!)
It must be incredibly taxing to be a celebrity. You know that no matter what type of outfit you wear in public, it's probably going to get talked about online. Not to mention the fact that the paparazzi are literally following your every move if you're successful enough.
With all that in mind, it must be incredibly relaxing to have certain hobbies that you can do to help unwind. When looking at Miley's Instagram, it becomes clear that one of her favorite things to do is to unwind with some yoga.
On top of being a great way to make sure she has some flexibility, the activity is known to have huge benefits for you mentally. Plus, we're sure you also don't mind staring at her in some yoga clothes!
14 Doesn't - Gyrating On Stage With Drug-Inspired Outfit
Miley Cyrus has several moments in her life that she wishes she had done differently. One of them is her extreme love of marijuana in the past that she says often inspired her to just sit around and not really do anything.
Cyrus has recently given up the substance, including admitting on Fallon
“I’ve always been very stoned on your shows. I don’t know if you know this, everybody. Member the last time I was here? I was dressed as a bunny rabbit and then like a cat. There’s a reason for that: I was high."
Which means marijuana may also have had a factor in several of her crazy outfits, including the pot-leafed one she is wearing above.
13 Does - Showing That Her Legs Go For Days
Miley Cyrus has several moments in her career in which she has decided that wearing a shirt is simply overrated. But perhaps all those moments where you have spent staring at her chest has left you blind to how amazing her legs look as well.
You're blind no longer though, as Cyrus is looking sexy for all sorts of reasons in the above photo and not just her top half. Though with the amount of running that she does during her performances, perhaps it isn't a shock that she has such strong legs.
It's also hard to not give her some bonus points for the fantastic design on her outfit. Turns out you can wear something that is sexy that also features cats!
12 Doesn't - Her Cindersmelly Halloween Costume
One of the best times of the year for getting your party on is Halloween. Celebrities are no stranger to enjoying the night and all the festivities that can come with it. And naturally, photos of their exploits are often posted online. Cyrus took to Instagram to share the above photo.
Along with a caption that said "Cindersmelly high as hell," it's clear what look Cyrus was going for. Given her recent decision to step away from the substance, we're sure she might not be such a huge fan of her past Halloween costume that was completely dedicated to it.
Perhaps on this upcoming Halloween, she'll just go as Cinderella?
11 Does - Showing Her Support For Free The Nipple
Miley Cyrus has several causes that she has used her celebrity name to help promote over the years. One of the biggest is the campaign centered around "Free the Nipple" which seeks to raise awareness to how women's breasts and that their nipples, in particular, are over sexualized in society.
"The nipple, what you can't show, is what everyone has, but the jug part that everybody doesn't, you're allowed to show underboob. I've never understood the way it works," said Cyrus in a past interview with Jimmy Kimmel when talking about the issue.
As well as this, Cyrus went on to say
"I see a lot of people with their clothes on and they're kind of assholes. When you've got your tits out you can't really be an asshole. It's like people are already judging you."
10 Doesn't - Getting Her Drink On!
When it comes to having a night out on the town, there are several things you need to be aware of. One of the most important may be making sure that your friends aren't going to be taking any embarrassing photos of you. Celebrities don't quite have that luxury as instead of worrying about their friends, they have to instead worry about knowing they are going to have potentially hundreds of photos taken of you by strangers and the paparazzi.
Cyrus has fallen victim to the stranger camera on several opportunities and we're sure she probably isn't the hugest fan of the drunken photos of her emerging online.
Nobody can blame her for not looking her best, after all, she's hammered, but that doesn't stop people from judging her.
9 Does - Her Opinion On The Thicke Incident
There was definitely some controversy around Miley Cyrus' outfit at the VMA's and her twerking all up on Robin Thicke. And while controversy may be an element that lands this event on the negative side of the list, Cyrus' attitude on the matter is enough to say that she may not mind people seeing it
"I still love it. But I now watch it, and I see someone that isn’t me now. I knew who I was, and I knew the power that I held, but I don’t think I realized my full power until that show. I didn’t realize I could make such a big reaction," said Cyrus.
While talking about the outfit, Cyrus also admitted that Thicke wanted her to be as naked as possible.
8 Doesn't - Showing It All For Wrecking Ball
There are several music videos that Miley Cyrus has done that have been incredibly popular. Her biggest, however, has to be "Wrecking Ball" that ended up also winning Cyrus an MTV award for Best Video of the Year. On top of the song being catchy, the video raised eyebrows as it also featured a nude Cyrus for most of it.
But Cyrus has recently admitted that she is well aware she is never going to live that video down,
“That’s something you can’t take away. Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever. Once you do that in the mass that I did, it’s forever. I’m never living that down. I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball,” she continued. No matter how much I just frolic with Emu, I’m always the naked girl on the wrecking ball … I should have thought how long that was going to have to follow me around.”
7 Does - Her Music Video For "Malibu"
There was a time when Miley Cyrus' idea of a music video was to strip down to her birthday suit. The times are changing for Cyrus though and that perhaps may be the most evident in her recent video "Malibu". Sure, she wears a swimsuit at one part in the music video but it's far from the scandalous things in her past. And definitely is tame in comparison to some of the other videos that musicians are putting out.
The fact that the song has over 200 million views on YouTube since being uploaded back in May should be proof enough that fans are loving the new version of Miley too.
Given that it's a much healthier and cleaner look, we're sure her parents are also thrilled with how her career is starting to look.
6 Doesn't - Paparazzi Photos Of Her On The Beach
The above photo was obviously taken by a member of the paparazzi and feature Cyrus on a fun trip to the beach. But when talking about her trip to Hawaii back in 2015, Cyrus made sure to rip into the paparazzi who she said ruined her trip
"These motherf*ckers wouldn’t quit taking my f*cking picture, so I couldn’t even go on the beach and enjoy it. Selling a photo of me in a bikini probably isn’t worth much. I do interviews in less than a bikini," said Cyrus.
While she's correct that she has done interviews in less than a swimsuit, that doesn't make the above photo any less appealing.
5 Does - Showing Off Her Abs While Walking The Dog
Miley Cyrus loves many things in her life. One of the biggest passions that she has though is centered around animals. On top of helping out with various organizations, Cyrus is a pet owner herself and often litters her Instagram with photos of her and her various animals.
The above photo, however, was not taken by Cyrus but was clearly nabbed by a pesky member of the paparazzi that must have heard she was out on a walk. Though we're sure her outfit, which perfectly shows off her very in-shape body, is still one of your favorites on our list.
Cyrus may not love how the photo was taken, but the message behind it is still a positive one and she definitely looks fantastic.
4 Doesn't - When She Smoked Up On Stage
Miley has admitted in the past that she used to be stoned all of the time and that it led to some of her crazier antics. Which makes you think she may have smoked some ganja, prior to deciding that she was going to spark up again while on stage at the MTV Europe Music Awards where she accepted an award for Best Video (for "Wrecking Ball"). If it's any justification, the event was at least being held in Amsterdam!
While she has in the past said that marijuana is "the best drug on earth," given her recent stance of stepping away from the drug means she probably wasn't too happy with this moment in hindsight.
3 Does - Riding A Toy Horse For Billboard
When it comes to promoting her music, Miley Cyrus has taken on several different approaches throughout her career. A large majority of those approaches may have centered around her letting the clothes hit the floor, but it's clear that with the above photo she was going for a more innocent approach.
The photos were taken to help promote her upcoming album and were published by Billboard. While the photos may be more innocent, we're sure you're still a huge fan of being able to check them out.
Here's hoping it's the first of what will hopefully be many upcoming opportunities for Miley to step in front of the camera.
2 Doesn't - Her Bragging About Her Money
Miley Cyrus is definitely not hurting for money. With a net worth of over $150 million and still only being 24 years old, there are no financial reasons for her to not continue partying it up on a regular basis. But Cyrus also tries to use her money to help make a positive difference in the world. Which means she may not be a huge fan of the above photo that was taken while Cyrus was getting her dance on.
It definitely looks like she was bragging about the amount of money she had. Granted, most of the bills at least appear to be $1's, which also begs the question as to what kind of environment was Cyrus hanging out in?
1 Does - Showing Her Love For Liam On Instagram
There are plenty of things that musicians will use in their life to help inspire them. Perhaps understandably, one of the biggest for Miley has been her on-again, off-again relationship with actor Liam Hemsworth.
Her latest song "Malibu" was written with him in mind, a trend that isn't going to stop anytime soon. Cyrus recently shared the above photo to her Instagram along with the caption "Seems all I can do...is write songs about you"
The photo went on to receive more than 1.5 million likes on Instagram in the first 24 hours. It's clear that the online community is also a fan of Cyrus using Hemsworth for inspiration!
