I think that if you go to a Miley Cyrus concert you should expect the unexpected. She’s doing her own thing right now, and if you don’t like it you don’t have to go to her concert.
Many critics are saying that her stage antics are like soft porn, but Cyrus insists that she’s just trying to educate children. Her Bangerz tour kicked off in Canada on Valentine’s day, and parents have been complaining about her miming a sex act with a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask on stage. They’e also taken offense to her dancing in a leotard that’s covered in marijuana leaves, among other things.
The 21-year-old says, “I want this to be a pretty high-end tour. I want it to be like good art. And I’m excited to go to places where people are usually not exposed to too much good art…I want to show people that music can not only be entertaining but educational as well. Many people don’t think of me first when it comes to education, but I might surprise a couple of people.”
If you’re planning on attending one of her concerts, here are some tidbits about it.
- Watch out for more of her four-legged friends! “Our whole tour is literally based on animals,” she said.
- There will be a massive screen! “It isn’t the easiest thing to travel with in the space that we’re using, and in some of the cities, my screen is actually too large … each city is going to be the biggest that it can be, and the best that their arena will allow us to have.”
- Even though the concert is supposed to be 90 minutes long, the acoustic section of her concert can be as long as she wants it to be depending on the city and the audience’s energy.
- Get ready for some special guests. “I have friends that worked on my album in all of these cities, so anytime I’m in the same city, I’m definitely gonna drag everybody out,” she said.
Cyrus says that she’s a hard worker, but she doesn’t “have that many friends.”
“Look, I am not the little girl any more. I think everybody knows that by now. I want to be my own person. I want to change all the time to become a better artist, a better person. I work my ass off and I like who I am.”
She thinks what young girls are wearing these days could be considered “boring” and they should try to be more experimental with things. It’s time that young girls, including her own fans, “try to be more risque.”
She also said that she likes funny people, so if you can make her laugh she’ll think you’re pretty awesome.
I also like funny people, and if you can make me laugh you’re in my good book.
