Miley Cyrus Is Getting Her Own Documentary and You Might Just Love It

She was once a poppy teen idol singing duets with her dad and starring in Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. Now she’s an offbeat artist singing along to a rap song about late night parties with Snoop Dogg. And it’s this progression that MTV thinks will make for riveting television in the channel’s Miley Cyrus documentary premiering this fall.

Since going off the air as Hannah Montana in January 2011, she managed to stay under the radar until recently, with high-profile relationships, social media shockers, and sexy performances proving she has indeed come a long way.

Based on a documentary of the same name, and now into its second season, Catfish: The Series helps bring the couples together, usually after the victim suspects their partner isn’t telling the truth, for a dramatic showdown. Host Nev Schulman (who was duped in the original documentary by a middle-aged woman) is at the center of it all, helping to reveal the truth behind the relationships. In the first season, it wasn’t always a case of “catfish” (the person with the fake identity) and victim. Sometimes the bad guys weren’t all that bad, just lonely, socially awkward or confused. In the case of the victims, you might think to yourself, “I would never let this happen to me,” but when someone seemingly perfect comes along, you can’t blame people for being positive. The...
