If you'd asked me to place a bet back in 2007 about the future years on the future for the then-underaged Miley Cyrus
, I would have placed hard cash on her going fully Britney, ending up with some freak who had kids from other women and virile enough to get her knocked up from a glance and carefully placed trucker hat. Other than her curious continuation of the less-than-trendy habit of smoking cigarettes, Miley has been keeping fairly relevant, from having a regular on/off celebrity boyfriend who made it into the engaged status once he'd gained a higher casting profile to keeping her tattoos limited to the places where most makeup artists can cover them up with pancaked powder. I like this lithe young-adult Miley. She's not too terribly annoying when I only have to look at her in see-through clothing and FM boots.
