Development Hell: 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.
A "Gypsy Heart Tour" DVD was scheduled to be released, but was canceled at the last minute.
Executive Meddling/Disproportionate Retribution: 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 The Fine Brothers, who had a Teens React episode taken down.
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 Hotter and Sexier change to a mature image made her name unquestionably Miley Cyrus to those writers.
in 2013, after going Hotter and Sexier, she appeared on the remix to French Montana's "Ain't Worried 'Bout Nothin'" declaring "Oh shit, there goes Hannah Montana".
She is great friends with, and has collaborated many times on- and off-stage with The Flaming Lips and their leader, Wayne Coyne.
Romance on the Set: She began a romantic relationship with actor Liam Hemsworth whom she met while filming The Last Song.
Screwed by the Studio: LOL got demoted to a limited release and almost no promotion from Lionsgate, as well as put up against The Avengers. 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.
