MTV SPECIAL! The rise and twerks of Miley Cyrus

Tongue wagging Miley Cyrus
After her four “2013 MTV EMA” nominations, headline-grabbing VMA performance, chart-topping sales including her first-ever #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for “Wrecking Ball” in the U.S., and helping to usher the word "twerk" into the everyday lexicon, global superstar Miley Cyrus has catapulted to the top of the pop culture stratosphere. But who is the real Miley and what is driving her transformation? For the last four months, MTV has been granted unmatched access to Cyrus, who will unabashedly take viewers on her whirlwind journey from tween television sensation to one of pop music's most magnetic and unapologetically controversial artists during "Miley: The Movement", premiering on Thursday 3 October at 20:30 CAT (MTV, DStv Channel 130). The intimate, 60-minute documentary film will capture the full essence and evolution of Cyrus as she gears up for the release of her debut RCA Records album "Bangerz" on Tuesday 8 October.  The special will chronicle her triumphs and struggles at home, in the studio and on the road, as well as the planning, rehearsals, performance and media frenzy surrounding her 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” medley with Robin Thicke. “Miley: The Movement” will air internationally on MTV channels around the world during October 2013. The film follows in the footsteps of similar enlightening documentaries that have featured the likes of such superstars as Lady Gaga, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Brittney Spears and most recently, Demi Lovato. Cyrus recently received four MTV EMA nominations, vying for Best Female, Best Video, Best Pop and Best US Act. The “2013 MTV EMA” will air live on MTV on Sunday 10 November at 22:00 CAT from Amsterdam.
