Auditions are the norm for newbie performers -- and sometimes even for those with more experience. Some of the tryouts you'll see below led to the gigs that made them famous, while others allowed jumps between TV and film or just the chance to branch out a bit...
Miley Cyrus recently paid an insulting homage to one-hit partially stolen wonder Vanilla Ice, referring to Justin Bieber as the new Ice in her interview with Rolling Stone. But apparently the Ice Man didn't take things too personally if his Miley tattoo is any indication.
The erstwhile Miley Cyrus was not shy about talking about her drug use in a recent interview in which she discussed all her favorites.
Here's a brief summary of her thoughts: MDMA = good, weed = better, cocaine = better left to the Patrick Batemans of the world.
In the wake of the inevitable Miley Cyrus/Liam Hemsworth split, rumors -- many of them ludicrous -- have flown about what happened and when. The latest? Miley supposedly had a pregnancy scare that kept Liam around longer than he otherwise would've stayed.
"I'm f---ing terrified," Miley Cyrus grinned as she jettisoned about two miles high in the air. The starlet, dropping F-bombs like they were going out of style, was getting ready to "jump out of a f---ing plane."
First there was Miley Cyrus' pretend-metaphorical 'We Can't Stop' video followed by the emotional nudity of 'Wrecking Ball.' Now we get to see Mike WiLL's leaked music video for the basketball-centric '#23' starring Miley, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa.
Miley Cyrus is the latest Rolling Stone cover girl, and it's not surprising that she's still going to great lengths to shock the world. She's topless and talking about all of her "homies" in the rap game.
Recently single lady Miley Cyrus had quite the weekend, performing and crying during her first-post Liam performance at the iHeartRadio Festival in a mesh dress and pasties -- and making buddies with the Kardashians.
Well, minus Kim Kardashian and her blonde hair, both of whom have yet to make a public appearance since the birth of North West.
Liam Hemsworth told Miley Cyrus to keep her engagement ring as a memento of their relationship (which can be either sweet or douchey depending on how you look at it), but the 'We Can't Stop' singer isn't sure exactly what she wants to do with it just yet -- and the reasons for that vary.
Miley Cyrus has amassed an army of followers, at least if the trailer for her upcoming documentary for and by MTV is to be believed, in which she talks about her new look, her new sound and her much blabbed about VMA's performance which conveniently aired on MTV.
You'd think they were psychic or something.
Justin Timberlake is one of those rare child stars who avoided trouble and went on to become an even bigger adult star. But he's certainly not smug about his success -- in fact, when he was asked about Miley Cyrus' latest exploits, he was positively diplomatic.
So much for any hope of a Miley Cyrus-Liam Hemsworth reunion. The couple, who confirmed that they'd called off their engagement earlier this week, are totally dunzo ... and Hemsworth has already moved on with another lady. And, to the surprise of many, it's not January Jones.
Though Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth breaking up wasn't too shocking, the announcement threw the world for a loop since both parties -- especially Cyrus -- seemed to be in denial for so long. Now, new details behind the split have come to light, and apparently the breakup was even more of a longtime coming than most of the world realized.
Courtney Love has had her share of controversy, so it's to no one's surprise that the former Hole frontwoman had something to say about the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards -- specifically about two of the night's biggest performances from Katy Perry, who boxed and did the mildest of choreography, and Miley Cyrus, who twerked on Robin Thicke's crotch.
Miley Cyrus' 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance not only cost her some of her musical credibility (seriously, what kind of choreography was that?), but possibly also her fiance -- and the cover of Vogue. Ouch!
Good news world! You can officially stop talking about Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance and commence your chatter about her new music video 'Wrecking Ball,' which, as far as we can tell, is a how-to guide for getting a yeast infection.
