In an attempt to distance myself from my younger persona, I released controversial music videos.

You got it Cliff! Miley Ray Cyrus, born Destiny Hope Cyrus. I knew that last clue would be a giveaway. As would some of the remaining ones:

My personal life, public image and live performances also sparked controversy and received widespread media coverage.

Despite my “bad” reputation, I served as a coach on the singing competition TV series The Voice.

As of 2021, my net worth is $160 million.

I am an advocate for animal rights and adopted a vegan lifestyle.

My music incorporates elements of varied styles and genres, including pop, country, hip hop, experimental, and rock.

Dolly Parton is my godmother.

I actually got it a couple of clues back but hadn't checked in for a day or so.

1) I was born in 1751 in Virginia
2) Most people don't realize this, but I am a Junior. I did not use the Jr. in my professional life.
3) I was born small and sickly and would remain short and rather unhealthy most of my life. My top height was 5'4"

4) In college I studied Greek, Latin, and Theology. I finished a year early but stayed to study Hebrew and Political Theory. I was a fan of "The Enlightenment."

6) I never had children of my own, but I married a widow and adopted her son.
7) My wife became a perfect model of a socially active wife. Many women would later follow her lead.

It still sounds like a US President, and I don't recall Thomas Jefferson's wife being socially active, so I'm figuring it's the spouse of Dolly Madison: James (Jimmy to his friends).

It is indeed the 4th President you speak of, Mr. James Madison.

8) Later I would run for and hold a seat in congress.
9) I had a strong hand in writing the "Bill of Rights."
10) I was the founder of the Democratic-Republican Party. (Later shortened to Republican)
11) I became the 4th president of the United States.
12) I had a reputation as a strong negotiator among my enemies
13) While I was certainly short, my reputation for being sickly was unfounded. I lived to be 83 years old.
14) My last name is among the top ten names for U.S. Towns and cities
15) I may have been the first "James" to be president, but I was not the last. It is the most common presidential 1st name.

I've been swamped with work all day.

I'll have a new set of clues tomorrow morning.

Sorry, guys. I've been up to my eyeballs in work, which will last about another week before a respite.

Someone jump in; I'll get a turn later.

1) I was born and lived most of my life in Massachusetts but my fame was associated with another state.

2) I went from being known locally to world famous in less than two years

3) My job related skills were significantly less than my colleagues and I was less qualified in my last place of employment but my name became better known

Bonus Hint) Two events made me famous, one anticipated and one not

exploit.
