She may be making jaws drop with her crazy antics every other week, but Miley Cyrus’ Smilers know that this performer has a kind heart to match her great musical prowess. With her Bangerz tour making a stop in Toronto next week (Monday March 31st couldn’t come any sooner), we’re naming this daring singer our #WomanCrushWednesday. Here’s why:
1. Her Charity Collabs
Justin Bieber isn’t the only singer with a heart of gold. Miley has supported numerous charities over the years. She and other amazing female performers like Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood and Rihanna, helped raise awareness for cancer by performing in a show for the charity, Stand Up To Cancer.
A year later, she and other then-Disney stars (Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez) released a song in honour of Disney’s Friends for Change, the company’s environmental initiative.
Then in 2012, Mileyteamed up with Johnzo West & Amnesty International USA to celebrate 50 Years of Amnesty International!
2. She’s hella talented
As we all know, Miley is a singer and an actress — and we’re not only talking about her Disney show, Hannah Montana. We couldn’t help but love her in LOL with Demi Moore and in Nicholas Sparks flick, The Last Song (pass the tissues, please).
3. She loves her Smilers!
Matt Peterson got to live every Smilers’ dream after his promposal to Miley went viral. Unfortunately, Miley wasn’t able to attend his prom, but she did give him the VIP treatment during her Bangerz show in Phoenix, Arizona as she sang “Adore You” to him on stage. How amazing is that?
4. Concert For Hope
Remember back in 2009 when Miley performed at the second Annual Concert Of Hope? Of coarse you do. During her performance of “The Climb,” she brought up a Smiler who happened to be a cancer patient. We cried once, or twice. Okay, a lot.
5. Her fashion
The best thing about watching blossom in the spotlight is watching her fashion sense change and evolve over the years. While we’re not exactly brave enough to try to pull off what she wears, we do adore how confident and comfortable she looks in whatever outfit she’s in. In fact, it’s this kind of confidence that helped land this risk taker on Time Magazine’s 2013 list for Worst and Best dressed celebrities.

6. Miley’s Backyard Sessions
Back in 2012, Miley performed amazing covers of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” and Jeff Buckley’s “Lilac Wine.” To think, this was only the tip of the iceberg where Miley’s singing abilities are concerned.
7. She’s a secret fangirl
