In 1990 the start of Britney’s career, she travelled to Atlanta to audition for The Mickey Mouse Club when she was 8 years old, but due to being too young she was denied a place. She spent the next three years in New York City attending the Professional Performing Arts School Centre. When she was 11 she finally gained a place along with her other future co famous stars Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling and then returned home in 1994 when the show was cancelled

Britney signed to Jive Records and flew to Sweden to record her first album, …Baby One More Time in March of 1998.

Baby One More Time was released in January. The track was also the lead single for her and reached number 1 on Billboard 200, and for the music video, Britney suggested a Catholic schoolgirl theme to portray a very innocent and young image for herself

The year 2000 was a big break through for Britney with headlining the “Baby One More Time Tour”, she released her sophomore album, “Oops!… I Did It Again”, in May which sold over 20 million copies worldwide.

That September, she performed a mash-up of “Satisfaction” and “Oops … I Did It Again,” at the MTV Video Music Awards in a sequined flesh-coloured bodysuit which changed her image to more of a sex appeal towards the audience earning her more fame worldwide from a good mixtures of target audience,

In 2005, Britney gave birth to her first child Sean Preston Federline with her husband which resulted in her image changing and possibly losing some fans due to her less sex appeal image

Just when you thought everything was going well in her career, Britney suffered a major breakdown which caused her to take a break from her music career and revamp her much needed help image. This was due to her close aunt dying of ovarian cancer resulting her in and our of rehab facilities. To make matters worse she lost custody of her kids to K-Fed the same month she released her fifth studio album “Blackout”.

In 2009, Britney made a break through and was back, thanks to the production “Circus” she had earned her place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest solo female artist to have 5 albums debut at number 1.

In total of the “Circus” tour in March, Britney managed to rake in $131.8 million showing her well known image was very much still well known

Britney experienced a lot of changes in her life which allowed her to result in many changed images from an innocent school girl to a bald shaved head.

Her image was originally synthetic throughout her career it shifted towards more organic later in her life.

Miley Cyrus was originally signed to Walt Disney Records under the name Hannah Montana – A synthetic act

Miley then debuted in 2007 as herself, signed a record deal with Hollywood records, seemed like an organic artist, wrote a fair deal of her own songs

In 2013 Miley signed with RCA Records and turned against her previous self who was established as a role model

Miley used to appeal to some common values, such as Youthfulness, creativity and originality

Miley stays within star image ideas and applies to far more common values; Rebellion, Sexual Magnetism, Anti-authoritarian attitude, disregard for social values and conspicuous consumption of taboo items

Miley Cyrus’ Twerk video made her infamous on the internet

The man behind that dance was Larry Rudolph

Miley hired Rudolph as her manager in 2013 at the same time she switched to RCA records

Wanted to be seen as more adult Larry Rudolph made turned her from a

child star to an adult one

Miley Cyrus is now a Synthetic act Her new image was devised by Larry

Rudolph in an attempt to establish her as an adult star instead of a child star

Rudolph also did the same for Brittney Spears, transitioning her from a child star into an adult one

A Clear change is evident and in keeping to Dyers theory we never know ‘Destiny Hope Cyrus’ we only know ‘Miley Cyrus ’

‘Miley Cyrus’ is a completely synthetic act as she was created by Disney channel as Hannah Montana. Miley then transition to herself and seemed like an organic act, but then re-transitioned back into a synthetic act.
