Celebrity of the Year Finalist #3: Miley Cyrus!

by at . Comments

With 2010 drawing to a close, it is with much pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

After the Jersey Shore cast fist-pumped its way to #4, we present one of our most polarizing figures at #3 ... Miley Cyrus!

Rocking Europe

Perhaps more than any celebrity we cover, 2010 was a year of ups and downs for Miley, lows and highs (literally!).

It began with the official announcement that Cyrus would be saying farewell to the role of Hannah Montana, and it ended with a bong-smoking controversy that epitomized the lengths this star had gone to over the past 12 months to prove she was transforming into an adult artist.

In between, Miley...

... dated Liam Hemsworth multiple times.

... sang a duet with Bret Michaels.

... hosted the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards.

... got slammed by critics for her portrayal in The Last Song.

... made out with a female dancer to prove her maturity.

... feuded with Perez Hilton over that blogger being an idiot.

... rarely wore pants.

... suffered through her parents' divorce.

... turned 18.

As you can tell, it was a year of starring roles and scandalous actions for Miley Cyrus. Ardent supporters stuck by her side, arguing that she was simply growing up as a person and a celebrity.

Critics, meanwhile, crushed the star for her misguided decisions, coming down on her for abandoning a young fan base and trying too hard to prove she was evolving. Where do you stand?

It's a question we've asked often and will likely continue to do so. This divisiveness is a significant reasons why Miley had such an impact on pop culture in 2010.

I definitely agree with blaize. miley is not the only one doing this type of stuff. everyone is just revolving this around her when there are other stars doing the exact same thing! the only thing though is that miley is a few years younger and used to be a disney star!

@hanna: Then you'd better not let those kids see Lady Gaga, Rihana, Katy Perry, Pink, or Fergie either because they're all doing the same type of stuff.

i don't know why anyone would be defending miley, you can never stand up for a girl who's acting disgusting, it may not be a big deal to you guys, but how would you feel if your children would look at her as a role model, lets be honest miley has become even more immature as she gets older, she's showing little girls that's its ok to get high, lap dance on men that are probably old enough to be her father.
she's a disappointment, she's definitely worse than britney or anyone else for that matter. i feel bad for her dad, not even he can keep her tamed, and if she doesnt listen to her own father then she's a definite lost cause, but all i know is that my cousins, nieces and any kids i know have definitely stopped watching her show, listening to her music, they want nothing to do with her!!!! she's a complete whore, and bad influence !!!
i hope everyone forgets about miley cyrus!!!

@USMC you have some serious problems, you need professional help. talk to a psychologist, and expand your vocabulary to something other then just curse words and derogatory terms

I disagree alot with usmc and junior. if this is affecting our recession then we should tone down the media more and focus on other important. it is true that our country is the laziest of all others. probably because of sites like this. i usually dont go onto these site but my friend went on so i decided to comment.
