* CreatorBreakdown: "Breakout" was mostly about her dealing with her break up with Music/NickJonas.
* DevelopmentHell: Her current recording company is apparently 'holding onto' the tracks she recorded recently and is refusing to release it despite the fact that it's almost finished. The fact that after her fourth album she can move to a different company may be the ultimate reason for it.
** Not to mention that she has two movies in limbo.
** Both movies [[SavedFromDevelopmentHell were (or will be) released]], albeit with limited distribution.
*** A "Gypsy Heart Tour" DVD was scheduled to be released, but was canceled at the last minute.
* DoingItForTheArt: ''Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz'' may count, a collaboration with The Music/FlamingLips and Mike WILL Made-It, containing psychedelic rock and trippy EDM tracks with introspective and idiosyncratic, uncompromising (and often [[DarkerAndEdgier very adult]]) lyrics and ruminations on loss and death. It is only available free of charge on her website. It arguably is unlike anything else in her catalog, even compared to ''Bangerz''.
* ExecutiveMeddling[=/=]DisproportionateRetribution: Her executives from her record label are unnecessarily defensive of her, to the point that any criticism is viewed as acceptable grounds to take down online videos, in spite of the fact that it's perfectly legal and part of being on the internet. Victims of this include Creator/TheFineBrothers, who had a ''Teens WebVideo/{{React}}'' episode taken down.
* FanCommunityNickname: Smilers, based on her father's nickname for her: "Smiley Miley."
* [[IAmNotSpock I Am Not Hannah Montana]]: Many written articles -- even in respected print publications -- often referred to Cyrus by the name of her most famous role, even when the article in question had nothing to do with the show. This ended in 2013, where her HotterAndSexier change to a mature image made her name ''unquestionably'' Miley Cyrus to those writers.
** In 2013, after going HotterAndSexier, she appeared on the remix to [[CrackPairing French Montana]]'s "Ain't Worried 'Bout Nothin'" declaring "Oh shit, there goes Hannah Montana".
* OddFriendship: Music/SnoopDogg, Kelly Osbourne, Music/EltonJohn, Music/LadyGaga, Pharell Williams, Wiz Khalifa, Creator/DemiMoore, Music/NickiMinaj and much of the main cast of ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' are among her friends.
** She is great friends with, and has collaborated many times on- and off-stage with Music/FlamingLips and their leader, Wayne Coyne.
* OldShame: After releasing the LighterAndSofter song "Malibu" in May 2017, Miley has said that [[http://metro.co.uk/2017/05/17/miley-cyrus-really-regrets-swinging-naked-on-a-wrecking-ball-6642874/ she regrets recording "Wrecking Ball"]], partly because it was a CreatorBreakdown for her since her relationship with Liam Hemsworth had began to collapse (they've since reconciled and resumed their relationship) and has admitted that she may NeverLiveItDown.
* RomanceOnTheSet: She began a romantic relationship with actor Liam Hemsworth whom she met while filming ''The Last Song''.
* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed by the Studio]]: ''LOL'' got demoted to a limited release and almost no promotion from Lionsgate, as well as put up against ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. Several people admitted to not even knowing the movie was out.
** Her second appearance on ''SNL'' (season 39, episode 2) ended up being pushed back half an hour unannounced due to a football game running long. It could have aired on time if several stations just went straight to the show instead of airing local news first. The move most likely ended up costing the episode viewers.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Weird as it is, the chorus of 'Wrecking Ball' is surprisingly similar to '[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ienPq8iRKmk I Could Have Been a Dreamer]]' by none other than Music/RonnieJamesDio!
* TomHanksSyndrome: Her movie ''The Last Song'' is a young adult romance tragedy, rather than the more comedic ''Series/HannahMontana'' for which she is famous.
