    Miley Cyrus is carving out her own place in the pop world, destroying that Disney image of her Hannah Montana past. She's going hard -- chopping off her hair, acting sexy, appearing in rap videos. She also revealed that she was considering a further overhaul by getting rid of her last name.

    "I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley but there's something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name," Cyrus said. "People have this misconception of me that I'm just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I'm just this ratchet white girl, and I'm not."

    Should Miley Cyrus part with her last name?
