Celebrity of the Year Finalist #2: Miley Cyrus!

by at . Comments

The year is drawing to a close.

Therefore, it's time for the The Hollywood Gossip staff to back on 2009 and name the finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

In this section, we pay tribute to the unique celebrities that made this year so memorable for celebrity gossip followers across the nation and world.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their ridiculous antics and, in the case of today's finalist, a series of age-inappropriate shenanigans.

Last week, our countdown featured the great Jon Gosselin in the #3 spot. Today, it's on to Celebrity of the Year Finalist #2: Miley Cyrus!

Miley Poses

This is the second consecutive year Miley has finished one slot away from the top spot in our rankings. Perhaps she ought to alter her patented finger flash, shown above, slightly. Either that, or win some music awards.

Cyrus has actually grown up considerably in 2009. She famously deleted her Twitter account and started a new relationship (with Australian actor Liam Hemsworth) that she's keeping on the down low these days.

Of course, Miley has had her immature moments in the spotlight, too.

She danced like a stripper at the Teen Choice Awards in August; she wore inappropriate attire when meeting the Queen of England; and she yelled encouragement at her nine-year old sister during the latter's rendition of an Akon classic.

Will Miley ever achieve Taylor Swift-like levels of success and respect? We doubt it.

But she's clearly aiming her career in a more adult direction. In 2010, she'll make a cameo in the Sex and the City sequel, while also appearing alongside respected actor Greg Kinnear in The Last Song.

If those films are a hit, and if Cyrus can star in a few more scandals, she might find herself atop our Celebrity of the Year rankings. For now, her fans will have to settle for runner-up status again, which at least includes a photo montage in Miley's honor...

I went to miley cyrus 's winter wonderland concert in december 2009 in manchester and it was full and everybody was screaming for her and waving i love miley cyrus posters about and loads of people wearing miley cyrus t shirts and i know myself she has loads and fans and the people who dont like her well you are wierd and you dont know what you are missing and she is the nicest kindest prettiest person i know x


Okay, this is wrong. Why are people bringing Selena into this? Miley is amazing, so if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything. She deserves all of this.


People are so immature.
Love you miley :]


Sorry people, but a lot of you guys are saying that she should not have got #2 of celebrity of the year.
She deserves itt. She is 17 and look how far she has gone, and she's thought hard for it.
&& I agree with what someone else said,
who cares about what she wears? im sure theres people out therre that wear worse, but she isn't being slutty? she wears small shorts?
whats wrong with that? she isnt showing anything and everyone has their own oppinion, so its upto you what you think. But yerh Miley is amazing and we love her!


Jonas are fukin gay!!!!And if hoes got shit to say say it to my handsome face


i agree with mileyfan but im ten i hate selena shes ugly and sucks singing and acting!i love miley and its not about the clothes or actions she does its her personality and shes very pretty


yea i no leave miley alone she is the best ever no one could ever be like her she cares about people and loves her fans im her biggest fan shes omg shes absoloutly amazing whaooo go miley hope cyrus x you'll win iloveyou miley woooooooooo you winnn girlll


hi ppl,
i think ppl should jus back off Miley Cyrus and not jus Miley Cyrus i think we should leave all Celebraties alone.
Like im a celebraty and i know how it feels jus 2 walk down a street or go shoppin and there r all these stupid cameos in ur face. fine u can hate Miley Cyrus but jus keep it 2 ur self!!!
and even if u do write that stuff bout how much u hate her well its not like she is goin on here 2 read all the bad stuff ppl has written bout her cuz i know i dont.
Anyway i hav 2 go 2 get ready 4 the concert that is happenin soon this holidays in Australis...AUSSIE PPL RULE!!!


she's not fat in any way, she's really thin. how you dance doesn't matter, it's a form of self-expression, her sister is a little girl it's only dirty if you have a dirty mind, it's disgusting for you to even think about it that way. she's an amazing singer and obviously a better one then you, seeing as how you don't have #1 albums released


i know the number one is michael jackson
