Miley Cyrus has accomplished more in her first 21 years than most people will in a lifetime. As the music industry's wild child du jour can now legally down glasses of Gatorade and Malibu, we'd like to take a moment to look back on how a little girl with a twang became a chart topping, tongue-wagging twerker in just over two decades:

She started out with the best of both worlds.

Though there were controversies along the way ...

She always knew how to "Party In The U.S.A."

Then Miley let everyone know she "CAN'T BE TAMED."

And she started dating Liam Hemsworth.

After "Hannah Montana" ended, Miley chopped off her hair.

Then came the twerk and the tongue.

Followed by the end of her romance with Liam.

Of course, she recovered, and celebrated her latest achievement by sparking up a joint on stage at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Exhausted? Well brace yourself for more, as we're sure whatever Cyrus has planned for her 21st birthday bash won't disappoint.

Happy 21st, Miley Cyrus!
