Now, Miley Cyrus has had an interesting life, to say the least.

Considering she's just twenty-eight-years-old, it's pretty remarkable everything the star has done.

But she hasn't been without controversy.

Following her Disney stardom in Hannah Montana, the star featured in a Vanity Fair photo-shoot which some accused of being "provocative" - the first sign that the star was becoming restless in her Hannah Montana role.

At the time, she issued an apology for the controversial shoot.

But the star later retracted her apology for the controversial Vanity shoot...

In 2018, a decade on from the photo-shoot, the singer took to Twitter to say that she's no longer sorry about the shoot.

Following her Disney fame, Miley has enjoyed a successful music career...

The singer released 2 albums while starring in Hannah Montana - producing several singles, including the popular 2009 hits "Party in the U.S.A.," and "The Climb".

And, in the same year that we waved goodbye to Hannah Montana, the star began her on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

The 2 first met on the set of Nicholas Sparks's film, The Last Song, in 2009, where they starred opposite each other as love interests.

Of course, we all know how that ended...

They may have been one of Hollywood's most high profile couples, but just 8 months after tying the knot, the pair called it quits.

And of course...

Miley also dated old flame Cody Simpson - but it seems that didn't work out either.

Soon after her Disney-induced fame, the pop powerhouse began to drastically move away from her PG persona.

We well and truly kissed goodbye to Hannah Montana when the star debuted her bleach blonde pixie cut in 2012, marking a huge change of direction for the singer.

And, as well as her whacky haircuts...

Around this time, the star attracted headlines for her rebellious antics, too.

From smoking marijuana to getting tatted up, she was hot tabloid news...

And many dubbed her as just another Disney star who had gone off the rails.

But a few months ago, the star opened up about cleaning up her act...

Including a switch to a vegan lifestyle.

But it seems as though it couldn't last.

Miley recently admitted that she has dropped veganism - and has now explained exactly why.

"I was vegan for a very long time and I've had to introduce fish and omegas into my life."

"My brain wasn't functioning properly," Miley told The Joe Rogan Experience.

She claims to have followed "the strictest vegan diet you've ever known."

But she found herself "pretty malnutritioned" and "running on empty."

So, as a result, she has now adopted a pescatarian diet, which means she will now include dairy products and fish, but not meat.

She revealed the moment she broke her veganism...

And how much it hurt her to do so.

"My ex-husband cooked me some fish on the grill."

"I cried, like, for a long time. I cried for the fish… It really hurts me to eat fish."

But she claims that, as a result of her diet change, she feels "much sharper" now.

Although she admits the change is "terrifying."

And as for the rest of the vegan community?

Well, Miley is preparing for the worst.

"They're going to come for me but that's okay... I'm used to people coming for me."

She is still doing her bit for her own animals, too.

"I have twenty-two animals on my farm in Nashville - I'm doing all I need to do for the animals."
