Miley Cyrus as a Game-Changer: The Underrated Pop Star

It’s been two years since Miley Cyrus took Hannah Montana’s squeaky-clean, Disney Pop Princess image and set it ablaze on national television when she twerked up on Robin Thicke. The outcry from mothers everywhere following that incident could likely be heard from outer space. This was the same girl who became one of the most iconic teen stars of the 2000’s and cranked out pop hits like “Party In The USA.” Every little girl’s fantasy was to be Miley Cyrus, living the dual identity of normal adolescent girl by day and global superstar alter ego, Hannah Montana, by night. At the time, it was easy to be shocked and feel that we were watching yet another child star begin the usual downward spiral that typically accompanies early fame and success. However, I’m starting to believe Miley simply wanted to reclaim her image from the one she was constructed for her by one of the biggest corporations in the world.
