Miley Cyrus resumed her Bangerz tour in London last night after a weeks-long break amidst rampant rumors that her hiatus was drug related, not stemming from an allergic reaction to antibiotics as stated by her rep. “I didn’t have a drug overdose. I took some shitty antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection and I had a reaction,” said Cyrus of the rumors.
It’s natural to correlate Cyrus’ wild on-stage behavior with the consumption of something a bit stronger than weed (which she openly advocates for and smokes), but where one would expect garbled words and erratic movements, Miley demonstrated superb hand-crotch coordination at last night’s concert. Not necessarily the behavior of a slurring, stumbling druggie who likely couldn’t even find their own crotch under that kind of pressure.

While Cyrus’ statement that she is the “poster child of good health” may be taking things a bit far, she doesn’t demonstrate any behavior unexpected of a twenty-something with gobs of money and attention. In fact, Cyrus displayed taste incongruous with her image when she covered Bob Dylan and Dolly Parton last night, two artists Cyrus equals in panache, if not in wisdom/the good sense to cover up one’s butt in public. That comes later, Miley. No rush.
Her Bangerz tour is set to continue through mid-August, if her poor pelvic area can take that much wedgie action/Michael Jackson-esque clutching without the support of a solid mind-altering substance. “I’m probably the only one on this tour who doesn’t drink or smoke before a show…It’s almost like being an athlete being up here, because if someone was fucked up, they definitely couldn’t do my show,” she said. Props to you, girl. Just say no.
