Barely a day goes by when Miley Cyrus isn't in the news. Most recently, she has been gaining attention after her performance of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell," at the VH1 Divas Show over the weekend. Cyrus donned leather, studs and chains, and grabbed her crotch during the song - causing her to shoot straight into the headlines again. 2012 has seen many stories about the 20-year-old. Here are some of her biggest headline grabbers.
On May 31, Liam Hemsworth popped the question after dating the "Hannah Montana" star for three years. Hemsworth presented his girl with a 3.5 carat diamond ring, and Miley was so excited, she took to Twitter to share her joy with her fans. She said, "Life is beautiful. I love you more today than yesterday but I love you less today than I will tomorrow…." How sweet! The couple still haven't set a date, but maybe 2013 will bring an announcement about when the big day will occur.
Yes, celebrity haircuts are big news these days, and no superstar's chop got more people talking than Miley's. After sporting various lengths of brown hair, the singer opted for a dramatic pixie cut dyed blonde! Initial opinions were mixed, but the only person whose view point really mattered was her fiance's. An insider explained, "He (Hemsworth) loves that she's become so daring with her looks and thinks Miley looks great with an edgier hairstyle." It certainly fits in with the badass rock chick she portrayed at the weekend!
In spite of all the good things that have happened to her this year, the young star recently had some bad news. Her 2-year-old Yorkie mix, Lila, died a little over a week ago. Cyrus was devastated, and her fans rushed to Twitter to offer their condolences. Miley has always been a keen animal rescuer, and has four other dogs, but Lila was said to be her favorite.
Earlier this year, Billy Ray's daughter made two appearances on the hit comedy, "Two and a Half Men." She played a chatty girl named Missi, who briefly became Jake Harper's (Angus T. Jones) girlfriend. Since Jones had his outburst about how people should stop watching the show that made him famous, people have wondered if his time there is running out. At the end of November, it was revealed that Cyrus might be set to make a return as a replacement for Jones if he leaves.
