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.

@whatever, if you're bored and so worried about the economy, why don't you get off your ass and make some money? What, are you sitting around and waiting for November 2012 to go vote? Then you'll say you've did your part? So far, from what I've gathered from your posts, you're lazy and uneducated. The same things you're bitching about. These gossip websites are fun. That's why people get on them. You can come on here and say how much you hate or love someone. It's just entertainment. It doesn't mean this is our lives. So chill the fuck out and go back to yahoo.com and have Happy Holidays fucker.
