Miley Cyrus turns 21 today!

The "Bangerz" singer even tweeted her excitement Friday, saying "I want everyone to party like its their birffffday tomorrow."

At an age when most young girls are celebrating the day when they can legally drink alcohol, Cyrus has been partying ever since she started twerking. She's definitely no normal 21-year-old, as she has been in the spotlight since she was just 12 and on "Hannah Montana."

While we're sure she'll be celebrating this milestone tonight with a drink (or many), here's a list of some of her vices she's admitted to over the past year or so.

Marijuana

"I think weed is the best drug on earth," she told Rolling Stone magazine in September. "One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better."

She's also sung about the drug molly.

In her single "We Can't Stop," Cyrus sings about "dancing with molly," a powder or capsule form of MDMA or ecstasy.

In another song, she says, "Popped a molly and you know, you know you'll never stop, you think I'm turnt up, wait until my album drops."

Tattoos

Cyrus has tattoos everywhere on her body, including an anchor on her right wrist, "Love" inside her right ear, writing on her left arm and even ink under her left breast that says, "Just Breathe."

Of the breathe tattoo, she told Harper's Bazaar, "It reminds me not to take things for granted. I mean breathing – that was something none of them could do, the most basic thing. And I put it near my heart, because that is where they will always be."

In fact, Cyrus told MTV that "I always knew I was going to get tattoos. I'm actually terrified of needles … I just don't like shots, and the doctor's office is cold. It's much more cozy in a tattoo parlor."

Exhibitionism

It's not just about the twerking. Everyone knows about her August VMA performance and her love for running a foam finger along her body.

But, she also stripped down into almost nothing for her photo shoot with Terry Richardson. The semi-nude photos of her wearing a pink leotard and showing some skin surfaced in October.

Finally, she dressed up as Lil' Kim for Halloween, with her left breast covered only by a purple pastie.

Cursing

In June, she cursed off paparazzi in Beverly Hills, saying "No, I'm f--king sick, you b--ch!" after they asked if she was pregnant.

On Halloween, she tweeted out a picture of a pumpkin that read, "Happy F--king Halloween."

She also told Rolling Stone what she thinks about cursing in culture and censorship, "Like, I was watching 'Breaking Bad' the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show ... And then they bleeped out the word 'f--k.' And I'm like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you're not allowed to say 'f--k'? It's like when they bleeped 'molly' at the VMAs. Look what I'm doing up here right now, and you're going to bleep out 'molly'? Whatever."

Fighting

Early last month, Miley didn't back down when Sinead O'Connor advised Cyrus not to exploit herself by using nudity in the "Wrecking Ball" video. Cyrus struck back in a series of Twitter comments and jokes, calling O'Connor "crazy" and highlighting O'Connor's struggles with bipolar disorder.

After a back and forth, Cyrus tweeted, "Sinead. I don't have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week."

Looks like this twerker won't back down.
