7. Miley Cyrus – Destiny Hope Cyrus
Miley Cyrus, who recently hosted the MTV Video Music Awards in August, was born in Tennessee in 1992. By the end of the show she announced the online release of her fifth studio album, titled Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz. This free album is under her label, Smiley Miley Inc.
As Hannah Montana, a Disney television and movie character, she has enjoyed much success and, in accumulation to her recent solo releases, is one of the best-selling artists of the past decade.
Her parents named her Destiny Hope Cyrus with the hopes that it would allow her to achieve much, and change the world for the better. Over time, she grew up with the nickname Smiley, due to her happy disposition. That later became Miley.
