Miley Cyrus, a renowned singer, rose to prominence in 2006 with the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana, where she played the role of a schoolgirl leading a double life as a famous pop star. Despite being in a good place now, Miley believes in the power of therapy to heal painful memories, as some things should never have happened. In 2013, the Party In The USA hitmaker famously shed her child star image with a sexually-charged performance of Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke at the VMAs, and the same day, she released her raunchy Wrecking Ball video. However, Miley insists that her career move had nothing to do with attention but more to prove that she was her own person. She wouldn’t erase any part of her transition as she believes an interesting life makes for interesting storytelling. Miley was honest with her fans about her struggles with depression, and this encouraged some of them to seek help. She advises stars in showbusiness not to search themselves online, as the internet can be toxic. Recently, Miley was the maid of honor at her mom Tish Cyrus’ wedding to Dominic Purcell.
