How Miley Cyrus Unapologetically Evolved Her Career

Almost everyone on the planet knows who Miley Cyrus is. Whether they miss the Hannah Montana character she played, or they embrace her new persona; Miley Cyrus is an icon. After separating herself from the television show Hannah Montana, Miley had a complete makeover.

She reinvented herself and her new music became successful because of it. If you want to reinvent your music career, draw inspiration from Miley Cyrus.

Here is how she did it.

1. Reinvent your whole image.

Chopping off long brown locks and adopting a platinum pixie haircut would be a drastic change for anyone, but it’s even more drastic when it is one of America’s sweethearts.

If you want to change your look, go for it. A musician’s look helps sell songs by getting the public’s attention and showing fans that there’s always something new to look out for.

2. Change your music.

For years Miley Cyrus dabbled between country and pop. Her country songs came from her Nashville roots and her pop songs went well with her Hannah Montana persona. In another effort to shed her Hannah Montana persona, Miley dove into the world of hip hop. Although her songs still had a pop vibe, it was very different than her country pop singing days.

Explore other genres of music and you may find a vast audience to match your new sound.

3. Let yourself be vulnerable.        

A single quality that every singer/songer should possess is vulnerability. Without it, you cannot be emotionally invested into your music. After Miley changed her image, she was able to express her true self. This allowed her to be vulnerable to her fans through her music.

During the mess of a public breakup with fiance Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus released “Wrecking Ball.”  The lyrics easily pertained to her crumbling engagement. The vulnerability she expressed in the music video is relatable.

There are many opposing opinions on Miley Cyrus’s new image. Now, she resembles her true self. A musician who wants to reinvent themselves can definitely learn from Miley Cyrus.
