Miley Cyrus stole the thunder from this year’s MTV VMA Awards after a performance that had Will Smith and family looking like this:

Miley, the child star formerly known as Hannah Montana, got jiggy with it. And by that we mean she twerked her butt off and foam fingered her way to massive Internet and social media shaming, and drove over 300,000 tweets in the process. “Blurred Lines” singer, Robin Thicke, who joined Miley for the performance, also got his share of infamy when his crotch got rubbed by Miley’s shameless foam finger. See for yourself here.

Out of curiosity, we searched for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” on YouTube, and promptly thanked the heavens that we did. Are exposed boobs allowed on YouTube now? More important, is a bra-less future within reach?


Back to the topic at hand, Miley’s “breakout” performance, while shocking, is nothing new. More than their cuteness, child stars are known for their rocky, oftentimes hilarious transition to adulthood. Like most people growing up, they go a little wild. How wild? Well, on the next page is our mild-to-wild thermometer of child stars, past and present.
