9. She danced on a stripper pole during the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

A 16 year-old Miley caused quite an uproar after she danced on a prop meant for naked ladies: a stripper pole. To be fair, the pole was on top of an ice cream cart, presumably to either balance Miley or off-set the inappropriateness. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, was quick to defend his daughter, telling Access Hollywood, "You know what? I just think that Miley loves entertaining people. I always tell her to love what you're doing and stay focused for the love of the art and not worry so much about opinion." If her dad was cool with it, so are we.
