When she was very young, Miley used to go onto the stage after her father had performed, and she'd help collect the flowers and homemade bracelets that people threw at him. Then they would go and donate everything to a local hospital.
Miley was born left-handed, just like her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. He believes that lefties have to learn everything backwards in life, so he trained Miley to write with her right hand from a very early age. To this day, she does use her right hand for that purpose, but she is a lefty with everything else. She has joked that if anyone dislikes her handwriting, they should talk to her dad about it.
Miley suffers from tachycardia, which is a heart condition that causes her resting heart rate to excel at a faster pace than a normal resting rate.
She celebrated her sixteenth birthday party at Disneyland in California. The entire place was closed down on a weeknight, and each guest paid $250 to attend. All the money went to charity.
Miley first auditioned for "Hannah Montana" when she was 11, trying for the part of Lilly. She later tried out for the part of Hannah and was turned down for both parts because she was too young.
The 3-D version of Miley's "Best of Both Worlds" concert debuted in only 683 theaters worldwide on Super Bowl Weekend 2008, but it beat out all other films (which were playing in a larger number of theaters) with a record-breaking $31 million in just its first weekend.
Miley's godmother is singer/actress Dolly Parton.
Miley's grandmother is the only person who still calls her by her birth name, Destiny.
Her first CD, The "Hannah Montana Soundtrack", was released on October 24th, 2006 and before the year was out over two million copies had sold.
Her song (That she sings as Hannah Montana) "Best of Both Worlds" was #1 on Radio Disney's top 30 countdown for the weeks of June 19th, 2006, to August 14th (It was beaten by another Hannah Montana song "I've Got Nerve" for the week of August 21st). It regained the top spot the week of August 28th & stayed there though the week of September 11th.
Miley's uncle works as her bodyguard.
She had to have braces put on her teeth in early 2006, but because the dentist's was able to hide them by putting on the other side of her teeth, no one notices them.
She was invited to appear as Hannah Montana at the 80th annual "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade". She rode on the "Build-A-Bear" float and sang her song, "The Best of Both Worlds". The day was extra special for her as it was also her fourteenth birthday.
Since she no longer goes to regular school due to the hectic schedule for "Hannah Montana", she is tutored on the set. She is in the 9th grade and she says that the school subjects she likes the most are math & creative writing.
She has naturally curly brown hair.
