Miley Cyrus: MTV’s 2013 Artist of the Year
Miley Cyrus has twerked herself to the top. The singer has been named MTV’s 2013 Artist of the Year.
Just a few months following her raunchy performance, the network revealed the news about the 20-year-old on Monday (December 9)
MTV head honchos had this to say about Cyrus, “Whether it was the tongue, the twerk-tastic VMA performance or the Terry [Richardson] photo shoot, there’s no denying there was a method to Miley’s madness. She schooled – and shocked us all in 2013, and did so on her own terms. All hail the new Queen of Pop.”
MTV’s music and talent programming strategy lead Amy Doyle said, “She dominated the music charts and critics’ best-of lists while creating some of the year’s most memorable moments.”
The title went to boy band, One Direction last year.
