Miley Cyrus of Disney’s hit TV series “Hannah Montana” was the sweet, girl-next-door, and as soon as the four-year series ended, she dumped that image and let the wild spirit take over her. Fans of “Hannah Montana” may no longer find their favourite star in today’s Cyrus, who is now known for twerking and for pulling off nude stunts.

The slideshow takes a look at how much the singer has changed over the years, and it would be an understatement to say Cyrus transformation has been shocking.

So when did her transformation start? Some of the critics and fans say that it is the pop singer’s 2013 MTV VMAs’ performance with Robin Thicke that announced the arrival of wild Cyrus, where she completely discarded her Disney persona. However, the “We Can’t Stop” singer first showed signs of her edgier self when she wore a skimpy outfit for a racy performance at the 2010 MuchMuch Awards in Toronto.

Cyrus was 17 years old then, and her behaviour shocked both her parents and fans since it was a departure from her innocent “Hannah Montana” image. After that performance, the singer told Associated Press that she was “really comfortable” with her body and in“dressing with a little less.”

"Now I'm able to do that a little more freely and, also, I've just grown up to be this way too. It's not like this was me five years ago. It's me now, presently," she said.

Last year in June, Cyrus stripped down for Paper magazine’s photo shoot, followed it up with pansexual revelation in Elle U.K.’s October issue. And there was also her heart shaped pasties appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show in August.

And Cyrus’ risque style at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards confirmed that her transformation is now complete. Aside from donning barely-there outfits as the host of the event, the 22-year-old singer also made pot jokes during her hosting gig.

Cyrus may no longer be the ideal role model for teens and young women, given her scandalous and outlandish style, but there’s no denying that singer has managed to keep everyone talking about her.
