Miley Cyrus is at it again. The wild performer is attempting to shock fans by wearing nipple pasties and smoking a rolled joint on stage once again. Her best friends would say that Miley is just being Miley these days.
Cyrus, 22, is promoting her new charity, the Happy Hippie Foundation, and is getting ready to release a new album later this summer. Cyrus tried very hard to shock fans during her performance at the Adult Swim Upfronts party in New York City on Wednesday night.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer had glitter on all over her face and in her hair. Miley wore butterfly wings and nipple pasties and revealed her newly dyed pink armpit hair. Some would say that she looks more like a raver rather than a hippie. Miley asked the crowd, “Where’s my joint?” before breaking out into song.
The singer went to “grab a lighter” as she lit up a huge rolled jointed.
Cyrus then asked the crowd, “Are you guys drunk yet? Are you guys high yet?”
The audience went silent.
The singer exclaimed, “No?! You’re gonna be at a show where I’m dressed as a f***ing butterfly and not be high? I’m down to share.”
Cyrus willingly passed her joint into the crowd, telling them, “You better pass that back.”
Miley Cyrus wasn’t on stage to shock. She also performed classic songs by Johnny Cash and Led Zeppelin. She even covered Khia’s “My Neck, My Back (Lick It),” according to a previous report, via the Vanity Fair.
The singer also performed with The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne that night. The duo debuted their new single, “Tiger Dreams,” which is expected to be on their reported collaborative album. The song is said to be a “spacey” and slowed down track which is unlike Miley’s generally upbeat songs.
“The spacey, slow-burning track boasted plenty of the Lips’ trademark pop-psychedelia, a mold Cyrus easily slid into and broke out of as she delivered the song’s somber, triumphant melody with a diva’s belt.”
Cyrus and Coyne covered the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life,” which they previously performed and recorded for the album, With a Little Help from My Fwends. The Flaming Lips recorded an album in tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, as previously reported via Rolling Stone.
Cyrus didn’t go without performing some of her own music. She gave fans what they wanted by performing a large number of songs off her 2013 album, Bangerz.
The singer took to Instagram to share some of her antics and performances from the night before. Miley got mixed reviews about her latest attempts to shock.
“EW YOU’RE DISGUSTING AND DESPERATE!”
“What happened to her?”
“You really think you look cute, don’t you?”
“No lie I wanna see her in concert.”
Sounds like her fan base has been generally faithful. What are your thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ antics? Do you think she should calm down and focus on the music instead?
