Happy 20th Birthday Miley Cyrus: A Look Back at Her Whirlwind Year!

Posted Friday November 23, 2012 12:22 PM GMT

She’s just one year away from being able to buy her own alcohol, and Miley Cyrus is celebrating her 20th birthday today (November 23).

Over the past year of her life, the “Hannah Montana” babe has experienced all kinds of craziness thanks to her successful career, faithful relationship with Liam Hemsworth, and stay-true-to-yourself attitude.

Earlier this year, Miley suffered criticism for being in such fabulous shape due to her dedication to her Pilates regimen.

And she didn’t take it lying down- back in April, Cyrus tweeted, “For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy, it’s not about weight- it’s about health. Gluten is crap anyway!”

Throughout 2012, Cyrus also came under fire for showing off some side boob, midriff, and pretty much everything else of which her conservative fans disapproved. Still, her racy pictures couldn’t keep her down.

Of course, Miley was overjoyed when her longtime boyfriend Liam Hemsworth popped the question and proposed with a blinged-out Neil Lane engagement ring. And she’s been dealing with wedding rumors ever since.

And most recently, the “Last Song” cutie decided to cut off her long brown locks and bleach her cropped coif blonde for a completely different look.

Given the never-boring life she’s lived so far, it will be interesting to see what Miley Cyrus does with the first year of her twenties!
