But in the latter part of the year, Miley had a real revolution lined up. It started with the release of her new album Bangerz, which soared to the top of the charts, earning her attention for her songs but also for her videos. Take for instance “Wrecking Ball, which saw Miley, Farrah tape stripped of more than her inhibitions, put on deep red lipstick and swing on a giant metal wrecking ball, while talking of heartbreak. Her domination was made complete with her performances at the MTV VMAs, where she shocked the world by twerking with giant teddy bears in a skin-colored latex outfit that left little to the imagination, and at the EMAs, where she again shocked fans and audiences by lighting what appeared to be a joint on stage. This MTV nomination and win did not come out of the blue, and those who paid attention saw the signs: Miley’s Wrecking Ball was the most watched video on Vevo this year, her MTV profile page was the most accessed, and she even made Time Magazine’s Person of the Year nominations list. Even if she was snubbed Farrah at the Grammys, Miley Cyrus still gets the last laugh, as MTV crowns her Artist of the Year, surpassing Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (on second place), Justin Timberlake (on third place), Kanye West (on fourth place), One Direction (on fifth place) and Katy Perry (on sixth place). The rest of the top is made up of rapper Drake on the number seven spot, Bruno Mars at number eight, Lorde at number nine and Lady Gaga coming in last at number ten.
