"Summertime Sadness" (Lana Del Rey Cover), "Hey Ya" (OutKast Cover), "Jolene" (Dolly Parton Cover) performed by Miley Cyrus on March 10, 2014 at the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota during the "Bangerz" Tour.
Miley Cyrus is mourning the loss of her beloved dog Floyd. "Yesterday was a really tough day," the source explained. "Miley is devastated." The "Adore You" crooner is set to take the stage on Wednesday evening in Boston and the Bangerz concert is expected to be "very sad." The pop star sadly informed her Twitter followers Tuesday that Floyd had died and wrote, "Today is the 2nd worst day of my life."
Miley Cyrus took the stage at the Izod Center Thursday night by sliding down a giant tongue in the middle of a 50-foot tall picture of her face. In case there were any doubts about how much the 21-year-old has changed since her last arena tour, she also spit water on her fans, gyrated on a giant bed with 10 of her dancers and encouraged girls to make out with each other. (This was actually a tamer show than usual, as Cyrus shelved some of her banter as she mourned the death of her beloved dog, Floyd, earlier in the week.)
The biggest change, though, is that she sang every song live -- no lip-synching at all. And it's that development, along with her growing bond with her fans, that shows why she will be around long after all the attention-grabbing antics stop generating headlines for her. The incredibly self-aware Cyrus seems clued into that, making a stripped-down set, where she covered Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" and Lana Del Ray's "Summertime Sadness" while tears rolled down her face.
Cyrus apologized profusely for her voice, which she said was giving out from all her crying, but still held up remarkably well, especially during Dolly Parton's "Jolene." She even asked fans to see her another time when she was in a better mindset. "I really do believe in the power of other loving human beings," she said. "Every day it's getting a little bit better."
For Elle magazine’s latest Women in Music issue, Cyrus graces the issue’s cover. Deeming her “crazy smart,” the cover teaser promises insight into the plan she has for her career. The first step? Have fun, naturally.
Opposing her appearances and fashion choices over the past few months, which have often included revealing, skin-baring, faux-whatever-you-want-to-call-it outfits and hairdos, Cyrus takes a glamorous turn for the cover, sporting a silver- and gold-sequined getup by Marc Jacobs, her blonde hair in a short, stylish pixie cut. She liked the cover shot so much, she tweeted it out a day early and earned nearly 13,000 retweets.
Miley Cyrus is postponing her U.S. tour while she recovers from an allergic reaction to antibiotics, but will resume her performances in August.
Cyrus' representative tells The Associated Press on Friday that the singer will resume the U.S. tour Aug. 1 in Uniondale, N.Y. The new dates will include seven rescheduled shows and two additional stops. The European leg of the tour is still scheduled to kick off May 2 in Amsterdam.
Cyrus' rep says the singer suffered from a sinus infection last week during her "Bangerz" tour and had "an extreme allergic reaction" to the antibiotic cephalexin on Tuesday. Cyrus canceled several shows this week as a result. Existing tickets for the 21-year-old singer's U.S. tour will be honored at the new date.
The 21-year-old pop star, who suffered an "absolutely horrible reaction" to medication earlier this week, gave her Twitter followers a brief update on Friday morning. "Sick of waking up to needles #goingthruit," the "Adore You" singer tweeted about her condition. She also added "#floydfriday," referring to her beloved dog Floyd, who passed away earlier this month.
