Happy Birthday, USA!













         Happy Independence Day! Have any plans to celebrate?      


Fireworks, except for 
public shows, are illegal
 here; and it's ironic 
because there are lots of fireworks stores in 
the area. I hope to spend a quite day at home watching TV 
specials.

Miley Cyrus And Clay Aiken: 10 Surprising Things They Have In Common



English: Singer Clay AikenEnglish: Singer Clay Aiken (Photo credit: Wikipedia)




              







Meet Miley CyrusMeet Miley Cyrus (Photo credit: Wikipedia)







                                                                                                                I got this blog post idea from Hubspot's Blog Topic Generator

         What do these two celebrities have in common besides being targets 
for the tabloids? 





  1. Both musicians were born in November                                 Miley Cyrus was born , Destiny Hope Cyrus,  on November 231992  and Clay Aiken was born, Clayton Holmes Grissom,  on November 30th, 1978 .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
  2. Both singers are from the South   


Miley is from FranklinTennessee. Clay is from Raleigh, North Carolina. 



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            3. Both are experienced a
ctors   

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           While Miley made her acting debut early on television, Clay has acted from his youth in a local theater group to Broadway and TV screen as an adult.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

4. Their religious backgrounds are similar 
           


         Clay and Miley are both Southern Baptists(Wikipedia)



picture break :D  
  














5. Both have experienced plenty of criticism and controversy


         When you're in the public eye, you get plenty of both whether

you deliberately caused it or not. Both seem to have learned
how to overcome their critics and go forward. 




6. Both Are Actively Involved in Charity work                                       
     
                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Clay co-founded what later became the National Inclusion Project and has been an ambassador for UNICEF for several years. He also has been active in volunteering and promoting other causes and charities. While Miley hasn't started a charity(according to my knowledge and research) , she has been just as earnestly involved in charity work as Clay.         



7. Both became famous in the early 2000's  



        Clay became famous through season 2 of  American Idol in 2003. Miley Cyrus's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus was already well known as a Country singer and an actor, but Miley's rise to stardom began with the preteen set in 2006 with Hannah Montana . 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         8. Both have worked with Disney                                                                       
           

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           From the Walt Disney World Parade in 2003, 
to singing on Phineas and Ferb,  Alladin and more; 
Clay's had a bit of experience in working with Disney.  
Miley got a big start there. 




9. Both have sung about Butterflies        





                                   

:D


10. Now, both have been featured on this blog :)


          


                 So, what do you think about these? Do you think I should have compared Clay with another celebrity? If so, who? Please give your opinion in the comment section below.
