Being famous can be pretty hard for some men and women, especially when they are thrust into the spotlight at a very young age. That seems to be the case for singer and actress Miley Cyrus, as well as most of her siblings.
These days, fans know Miley as the person who has done some seriously weird things such as dying her arm hair pink, as well as having some strange feuds with other celebrities, according to ranker.com.
