I have to admit that I was a not so closeted Hannah Montana fan. So naturally, that spirit carried through to the woman under the wig, Miley Cyrus. Her new single, Malibu, brings her to a softer pop sound and is her ninth top ten song on the US Billboard Hot 100. Malibu is the first single on what will be Cyrus’ sixth studio album, following her last, Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz, a collaboration with The Flaming Lips. And let me tell you, this song is hot.
Miley Cyrus doesn’t only sing. She recently starred in Amazon’s Crisis in Six Scenes with Woody Allen and Elaine May and served as a judge on the eleventh season of The Voice. But we can’t forget that she comes from a talented family. Her father is country-singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, her fiancé is Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, and her brother is Trace Cyrus, singer and lead guitarist for the band Metro Station. Then there’s her sister, Noah Cyrus, who recently landed in the musical scene herself. Her first single was Make Me (Cry), which is certified platinum. Looks like there’s nothing the Cyrus brood can’t do.
Miley is an activist and founded the Happy Hippy Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to help homeless youths, the LGBTQ community, and other vulnerable populations.
