Miley Cyrus Gets Engaged at 19 and Her Other Questionable Moves

Yahoo Contributor Network

Miley Cyrus is engaged. The star of "Hannah Montana" is set to marry 22-year-old Australian actor Liam Hemsworth. Cyrus and Hemsworth met in 2009 on the set of the Nicholas Sparks movie "The Last Song." Some may consider 19 to be a little young for the "LOL" actress to marry, but those who've followed the career of the former Disney star know that she's been rather advanced for her young years.

May 2010 - A video is released of Cyrus giving the 40-something producer of "The Last Song," Adam Shankman, a lap dance. At the time, the pop star was only 16.

June 2010 - No longer "Hannah Montana" squeaky clean, the singer simulated a lesbian kiss on the "Britain's Got Talent" stage. She wore a black corset and black fishnet stockings as she sang "Can't Be Tamed."

October 2010 - The Parents Television Council is none too happy with the sexy music video for "Who Owns My Heart." The then 17-year-old is shown dressed in black stilettos and wild hair, bumping and grinding with both guys and gals on a strobe-lit dance floor.

November 2010 - At 18, the singer is caught on video singing Nicki Minaj's "Bottoms Up." But that's not the reason for the scandal. It's that she's seen smoking the hallucinogenic herb salvia and swearing like a sailor.

November 2011 - On her 19th birthday, the "Can't Be Tamed" star is caught on video again. This time she's joking that she's a stoner. "You know you're a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake," said Cyrus. "You know you smoke way too much f------ weed."

May 2012 - Today, since Cyrus has totally ditched her Disney image, she isn't afraid to speak her mind. "I was so trained in my interviews to be All-American or whatever," said Miley. "I just got so set in the way of saying the same things I did when I was 12 years old. I guess I kind of realized that my whole life isn't one giant press junket. I don't have to be smiling all the time and always have the perfect answer...I finally had to look inside and say, 'What do I really think about this?'"
