(Photo: Michael Tran, FilmMagic) Cyrus’ recent bizarre antics may not be attempts to get attention for attention’s sake She performed twice Saturday at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas During her sets, she covered the 1970 New Seekers hit ‘Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma’ SHARE 118 CONNECT 36 TWEET 21 COMMENTEMAILMORE LAS VEGAS The problem with Miley Cyrus isn’t that she has broken bad. It’s that she’s so confusing. One day, she’s sexualizing herself without actually being sexy, putting her hair up in double buns like a baby devil’s stubby horns and sticking her tongue out like a cartoon-character Calvin making faces at his stuffed tiger. The next, it seems, she’s singing Wrecking Ball, a devastating piece of heartbreak pop that ranks among the year’s very finest singles. If she’s trying to show how grown up she is by how lewdly she can act, she’s not doing a very good job of it. At the same time, conventional wisdom suggests that rubbing foam fingers in places foam fingers ought not go doesn’t help her credibility as a singer of serious fare like Wrecking Ball. Perhaps, as proposed by Elton John who, like Cyrus, played this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas she’s a “meltdown waiting to happen.” Frankly, it’s hard to tell. What’s great about Miley Cyrus, though, is that she’s so funny. She has a weird and finely tuned sense of humor, which she displayed Saturday during two performances at the festival, particularly her afternoon set at the Music Festival Village. FOLLOW THE ACTION: Live tweet stream Dressed in a white hot-pants suit with laces that went flying every time she swiveled her hips toward the audience, Cyrus performed We Can’t Stop and Party in the U.S.A. while surrounded by dancers wearing inflatable mushrooms and rainbows, as well as twerking little people. The colorfully absurd stage looked like a cross between a Super Mario Bros. video game and a demented early-’70s children’s television show. With all Cyrus’ activity the past few weeks her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, appearing naked in her Wrecking Ball video, breaking up with Liam Hemsworth she’s shown an uncanny ability to astonish.
Miley Cyrus a crowd favorite at IHeartRadio music festival
While at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas yesterday, E! News asked Perry if she would consider working with the 20-year-old Wrecking Ball singer. I dont knowmaybe. Shes got an incredible voice, Perry replied. “I have heard her sing Wrecking Ball’ before that single came out and I tweeted about it a long time ago before it even came out and I was just so excited about it for her,” she continued. “She’s got a set of pipes that are incredible.” Juicy J, who paired with Cyrus and Wiz Khalifa for 23, said that he is still in shock that he got the opportunity to work with her. “I never thought I would collaborate with Miley Cyrus, but I am so glad it happened. It’s like not even real to me! he said. I have to pinch myself. It’s almost like a dream come true ’cause she is super talented. We made a lot of great records together.” J. Cole saw Cyrus sing with Dolly Parton in 2010, and thought she was amazing. “I saw her sing on stage with Dolly Parton and I thought it was pretty amazing,” the “Crooked Smile” rapper said.
21, 2013, 5:47 PM EST By MESFIN FEKADU, AP Music Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) a Miley Cyrus can’t stop. The pop singer was a crowd favorite at the iHeartRadio music festival day event Saturday in Las Vegas. Before she hit the stage, the crowd of a few hundred chanted: “Miley! Miley! Miley!” Bing: Justin Timberlake defends Miley The 20-year-old emerged onstage in all white, wearing a tight corset and high wasted shorts that revealed some of her backside. Her four-song set opened with the anthemic “We Can’t Stop,” where people onstage were dressed in flower, mushroom and rainbow costumes. She gyrated and slapped a dwarf-sized dancer’s butt onstage. She followed the colorful performance with “Party In the USA.” But it was her emotional rendition of “Wrecking Ball” that was her set’s highlight. Cyrus’ mascara was running as she left the stage after the song and the performance comes days after she announced she was no longer engaged Ato actor Liam Hemsworth . She thanked the audience for helping the song top the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. “I couldn’t have done it without all you guys,” she said. Cyrus broke a record when she debuted the song’s provocative video, which features her in the nude. The wild child singer said she knows “things I’m doing that’s getting me into trouble and it’s just me doing what my heart and soul is telling me what to do.” Everything she’s done is “inspired by the music,” she said.
