Funk singer career

Miranda became first known in 2008 for being erroneously portrayed by the media as a niece of the singer Gretchen , while she was actually the niece of one of the Gretchen's ex-husbands; [4] the false relationship led to her promotion as successor to Gretchen's title of "Rainha do Bumbum" ("Butt Queen"). [5] [6] She premiered the funk songs "Melô do Piripipi" and "Não quero perder o selinho, eu só quero dar beijinho!", and posed nude for the men's magazines Sexy and Vip . [6] [7]

Pornographic film career

In 2008 Miranda entered the adult industry, starring in two controversial, extravagant and successful [8] [9] [10] pornographic films: ostensibly still a virgin, in her first film Fiz Pornô...Continuo Virgem , she only performed oral and anal sex and then in her second film she got engaged in vaginal penetration. [2] [2] Months later she claimed to have repented to have lost her virginity this way. [2]

Sexy Dolls

In 2009, along with adult actress Júlia Paes (who had a romantic relationship with Gretchen's daughter Thammy Miranda) [2] [3] and model Sabrina Boing Boing, she formed the musical girl group Sexy Dolls, inspired by the American group Pussycat Dolls . [2] [2] [2] Despite the initial success, in 2010 Paes left the group, and consequently Sexy Dolls disbanded. [8] [2]
