Miley Cyrus 18th birthday celebrations are taking place today. After the Miley Cyrus 18th birthday parties are finished, the teen icon will officially be at the next stage of her life and career. For some time, there has been some debate on how quickly she is growing up, and how revealing she should be about it. With her recent revealing music video, and various rumors about her off-stage life, some fear that the bottom could fall out soon. But after Cyrus’ 18th birthday, she will face the future as a legal adult, no matter how it turns out.
After years of being in the spotlight, the former Disney star is now on the official cusp of adulthood. By turning 18 today, she is now of legal age, and now subject to even more scrutiny. She is technically still just a kid, but she is not a little girl anymore – and many would argue that she hasn’t been for a while.
Once the birthday celebrations die down, fan and followers will go back to tracking her career path — and behavior. She has raised eyebrows recently with some of her choices, especially with the “Who Owns My Heart” video some months back.
With her somewhat revealing photos in the last few years, and her appearance in the “Who Owns My Heart” video, it seems everyone is waiting for her to bottom out. Constant comparisons have been made between Cyrus and Britney Spears, who had a notoriously hard time after she turned 18.
Career-wise, she is transitioning into more adult music and movies to leave the Hannah Montana days behind. But even after Cyrus’ 18th birthday, can her fans accept her as a grown up performer – and can she avoid growing up too fast?
There are countless cautionary tales of young stars failing to transition as adults – and fewer tales of stars who succeed in doing it. Cyrus has already faced endless scrutiny over the years, and it stands to get even greater in the immediate future.
For now, the focus is just on celebrating her big day, and even going beyond that. The parties started early, as she told Access Hollywood that she is spending the month celebrating.
Part of that involved performing at the AMAs on Sunday, and having a star-studded party that night – complete with the press wondering if she has a new boyfriend yet.
