The 21-year old simply could not stop making headlines over the past 12 months, from dancing without a lot of clothing on to filming music videos... without a lot of clothes on.

And it all paid off, criticism be damned.

Miley earned the top spot on the Maxim Hot 100 and also her first-ever #1 single with "Wrecking Ball."

But the crazy year really got underway with the artist's VMA performance, alongside Robin Thicke, in August:

The controversy took off from there, as Miley ignored rumors about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth, stripped down and straddled a wrecking ball, totally nude:

However, Miley's personal life then took center stage, with the engagement being called off amidst cheating rumors on both sides:

The singer hasn't commented much on the split, preferring to keep her heart private, while - ironically - making everything else public. To wit, this birthday suit-laden Rolling Stone cover:

But Sinead O'Connor then entered the picture and took the focus off both Miley's break up and her breasts, getting into a major back-and-forth with the superstar over mental illness, the music industry and a lot more.

From there, it was off to the MTV Europe Music Awards stage, where Cyrus once again stirred up some serious controversy by actually smoking pot on stage. For real!

Cyrus then spent the holidays Twerking up a storm, often on Santa's lap, while performing at a number of Jingle Ball concerts:

What does 2014 hold for Cyrus? Who can possibly say? There are few barriers left for the singer to cross at this point. But remember: she's only 21 years old. Whether you like it or not, there's A LOT more Miley Cyrus to come in the future.
