Miley Cyrus performs at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Sprint Center. Tickets are $17.50-$89.50 through AXS.com.

When Miley Cyrus was born Nov. 23, 1992, her parents named her Destiny Hope because they believed she would do big things in life.

Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife, Tish, got that part right.

Miley Cyrus returns to the Sprint Center on Tuesday night with her worldwide “Bangerz” tour, which along the way has provoked the ire of some, shall we say, less culturally aware parents wondering whatever happened to that clean-cut child star who used to be on the Disney Channel.

Check out the photos to see how that little girl — who was so happy as a child her parents nicknamed her Smiley, then ’Miley — has evolved into one of the most famous entertainers of her generation.
