It's a nice reminder to never give up on your dreams.


  • Miley Cyrus' Endless Summer Vacation was one of the biggest musical releases of 2023.
  • The singer just won the first Grammy of her long career in music.
  • Miley didn't seem very excited about the award for a sad reason.

Miley Cyrus was one of the artists who stunned the world with the release of her new studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, after a three-year hiatus. Kicked off with the single Flowers in early 2023, the album proved to be a hit, peaking at #1 in many countries throughout the year.

In addition, ESV reignited people's interest in Miley Cyrus and helped the singer showcase a different side of her artistic persona. Most importantly, the album and especially its lead single have earned Miley two long-awaited Grammys.

Miley Cyrus Has Received Her First Grammy Awards

Why does that matter, you might ask? But it's a pretty impressive achievement for someone who's been in the industry for nearly two decades.

Over the years, Miley Cyrus has released eight music albums and received eight Grammy nominations, but until recently, the singer had never won the coveted award. This is why her recent wins in the Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance categories are so meaningful to the artist and her fans.

'There was a little boy that all he wanted for his birthday was a butterfly. So his parents gave him a butterfly net and he was so excited. He went outside, out in the sun and started swinging and swinging. But with no luck, he sat down on the ground, he finally let go and he surrendered. He was okay that he was not going to capture this beautiful butterfly. Right when he did is when the butterfly came and landed right on the tip of his nose. And this song, Flowers, is my butterfly. Thank you,' Miley Cyrus said in her acceptance speech.

Overdue Recognition

Miley Cyrus' Endless Summer Vacation is indeed a remarkable album that kept listeners on the edge of their seats thanks to a series of powerful singles like Flowers and Used to Be Young. And it's wonderful that the singer is finally being recognized for her work. But it seems that Miley gave up on winning a Grammy a long time ago. And as much as Cyrus' wins mean to her, they're not as appreciated as they might have been years ago.

'This award is amazing, but I really hope it doesn't change anything, because my life was beautiful yesterday. Not everyone in the world will get a Grammy, but everyone in this world is spectacular. So please don't think that this is important, even though it's very important, right, guys?' Miley added.

Hopefully the Grammys will only encourage Miley Cyrus to create more brilliant music.
