Miley Cyrus hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and her cardigan, and was all like, "Welcome to the land of fame, excess, whoa, am I gonna fit in?" But then she came in like a wrecking ball, made millions of dollars, and started dating Liam Hemsworth. So, ya know. It all worked out.
And while we could spend several hours/days/years talking to you about Miley and Liam's relationship, or, alternatively, Miley's relationship with sledge hammers, we're here to talk about her dollars. Because she has a lot of 'em, as in, her net worth is bonkers.
First, let's discuss Hannah Montana.
Miley starred in Disney's Hannah Montana for five years, and you're probably assuming she made major coin. On the one hand, sure, she got merchandising deals and made a reported $15,000 per episode—which is about $450,000 per season, or, in layman's terms, a shit-ton of money. But on the other hand, Miley says she was one of the most underpaid cast members on the show.
"I did not grow up spoiled in any way. I just wanted to be on TV," she told Elle. "I mean, at one point—they’ll probably kill me for saying it—I was probably the least paid person on my cast because I didn’t know any better. I was just like, 'I can be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it!' My name was Miley on my show, but I didn’t own my name—we didn’t think about that." Which, eek!
P.S. Let's not forget that Miley also starred in several movies, including The Last Song, which grossed over $89 million at the box office—and she def took home a big piece of that pie.
Miley's music is by far her biggest money-maker.
According to RIAA, Miley has earned $25 million in digital singles (the downloads of individual songs vs. entire albums). The song "Party in the USA" is responsible for $7 million of that! All by itself! So let's listen to it!
She's also made bank on tour.
I think we can all agree that Miley Cyrus' tours deliver. And she makes helllllla money from them.
All of Miley's many tours have earned her major money, but her Bangerz tour was a standout, earning $62.9 million, and her earlier Wonder World tour, another standout, earned $67 million. Of course, Miley doesn't take home all that money, but she certainly pockets a significant chunk of it—and don't forget that merch sales yield a ton of extra cash.
She made SO MUCH on The Voice.
When she's not busy making music and grinding on foam fingers, Miley moonlights as a judge on The Voice. Which is a pretty sweet side hustle, considering that she reportedly earned around $13 million per season *and* got to hang with Adam Levine.
So, what's Miley's total net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Miley's net worth is a staggering $160 million. Basically, she can't stop/won't stop making money. Good for her, now please excuse me while I reevaluate all my life choices.
