She came, she saw, she twerked and she conquered -- Miley Cyrus made summer 2013 a summer to remember in terms of entertainment news. First, there was the risque 'We Can't Stop' music video, released in June. Then came her unforgettable performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, during which she twerked on Robin Thicke, did nasty things with a foam finger and made millions of viewers -- especially her 'Hannah Montana' fans and their moms -- gasp (and spur several to file indecency complaints to the FCC).
Then the clothes started to come off. She appeared naked in a new music video for her new song, 'Wrecking Ball,' a ballad about heartbreak featured on her new album 'Bangerz,' which would later debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart (read a review of 'Bangerz'). Days after the video was posted online, Cyrus confirmed she and longtime fiance Liam Hemsworth had ended their engagement.
