Miley Cyrus: Hope Springs Eternal

Destiny Hope Cyrus (better known as Miley - short for Smiley) got her optimistic name because her parents (country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish) expected great things from the little one. She first became interested in acting while hanging out on the set of her dad's now-defunct TV show Doc. With a little help from dad, Miley was soon developing her skills as an actress playing the character of Kylie on that show.

Miley Cyrus: Little Fish in a Big Pond

Stepping out from her father's shadow, Miley jumped ship to play "Young Ruthie" on the critically acclaimed Tim Burton movie Big Fish. She then went on to audition for a small Disney role but was passed over because she was considered too short. However, they were still interested in her and eventually developed the role of Miley Stewart for her on Hannah Montana.

Miley Cyrus: This is the Life

Hannah Montana went on to be a hit show and launched Miley's recording career with the release of the Hannah Montana Soundtrack. The disc went all the way to number one on the US charts. Miley was in character as Hannah Montana on the soundtrack, but she showed the world her true colors on Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus, which came out in June 2007!

Miley Cyrus: Taking on the Scalpers!

Within minutes of them going on sale, tickets to Miley's Best of Both World Tour had sold out. The only problem? They'd been scooped up by unscrupulous scalpers instead of Miley's fans. With tickets re-selling for as much as $2,500 per seat, Miley has been working with venues to free up more seats to be sold at more reasonable prices. Miley has also told her fans that, while the show will be fun, it's not worth paying the prices scalpers are charging!

Miley Cyrus: Life After Hannah Montana

Production on the fourth and final season of Hannah Montana began in January 2010. The year 2010 also saw Miley starring in The Last Song, which was released on March 31, 2010. The film got bad reviews from the critics, but made more than $88 million at the worldwide box office, marking the actress' successful transition to more adult roles. The fourth and final season of Hannah Montana began airing on Disney Channel on July 11, 2010 and is scheduled to end in 2011.

Alright I'm sure lots of us here are familiar with the anime known as "Attack On Titan" it is consider the "Walking Dead" of anime. I wouldn't say that is too far from the truth. The plot line is original, the characters are well thought out and some just B.A. So I have made a forum to discuss certain issues that people either may want to explain about the anime or ask questions if they are confused in anyway shape or form.
