Share on Facebook

Miley Cyrus has had a whirlwind of a decade, but this year has been the ultimate testing ground for her. From the breakdown of her short-lived marriage to ending up being hospitalized, the singer has been through a lot.

However, there’s one thing that actually may have stayed the same and you can see it in the comparison shots she posted depicting her at the start of the decade vs the end. The post has received over half a million likes already and people can’t stop talking about how accurate it is.

Keep scrolling to see the picture so you can decide for yourselves.

Circa 2006, an eleven-year-old Miley Cyrus auditioned for the role of Hannah Montana’s best friend, Lily. Cyrus nearly never got the part due to her being a bit too small and young to fill the role… However, after considering her impressive singing ability as well as her undeniable acting skills, casting agents decided to make her the star.

Hannah Montana became a family project when Miley’s dad, famous country singer Billy Ray Cyrus agreed to feature. The characters were then written to match the lives and personalities of Miley and Billy Ray, they even shared the same names.

Miley was Hannah Montanna.

Or at least that’s what Disney wanted us to believe. For young Miley the split personality of Miley the character, Hannah Montanna the alter-ego and Miley the person must have felt a little confusing at times. At only twelve-years-old Cyrus was launched into stardom.

In 2006, after the hit-show was launched Disney decided to release a soundtrack album. The Hannah Montana soundtrack topped the Billboard charts and sold three million copies worldwide. Cyrus became the first Disney act to have deals within television, movies, consumer products, and music.

By 2007, Miley Cyrus was not only continuing to make the hit tv-show she was also performing the Hannah Montana world tour.

Like all the Disney Channel kids rumors constantly swirled about who was “dating” who. Cyrus was rumored to be dating fellow Disney star, Nick Jonas from June 2006 to December 2007.

In her debut feature film gig voicing a character in Disney’s Bolt (2008) Cyrus was nominated for a Grammy. Remember when no one knew Travolta wore a wig? Huh, weird right.

Hannah Montanna: The Movie (2009)

And on the brink of this decade, Hannah Montanna got her own movie and marked Miley’s emergence onto the big screen.

The Last Song (2010)

In 2010, with Hannah Montanna well and truly over, seventeen-year-old Miley starred in a movie alongside Australian heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. The co-stars fell madly in love.

The pair officially began dating in 2010 but split in late 2012. 4 years later, things were back on, and the pair rekindled their romance. You can read more about her latest relationship status later on.

In classic post-break-up fashion, Miley decided to switch up her look… a lot. Going for a short back and sides and peroxide blonde style, Cyrus entered a new era during this decade.

In a groundbreaking video shot by Terry Richardson, Miley shook the world with her “Wrecking Ball” song. To date, the 2013 music video has garnered one billion views.

Miley’s music repertoire has gone from strength to strength and her loud and proud fashion statements have cemented her as one of pop music’s key players.

As of 2016, Miley joined the ranks of the coaching panel on the eleventh season of The Voice U.S, replacing Gwen Stefani. She hit some impressive milestones in this decade as, Cyrus became the youngest coach ever to be selected for the show.

Miley and Liam rekindled their romance in mid-2016 after 3 years apart. In December 2018 they wed in a private ceremony in Tennesse. Things didn’t last though and Liam filed for divorce in August 2019.

By completing the “Beginning of the Decade vs End of Decade Challenge” of course!

For those of you that aren’t quite sure what this challenge is, it’s pretty simple. You dig through your archives and find a snapshot of yourself in 2010, and compare it to a recent selfie.

Just as Miley’s were…

Fans are comparing the two pictures, claiming that at the start of the decade she was just a young rock fan in the crowd, but by the end, she became the rocker on stage. Wow.
