Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Adele, 50 Cent etc, are still strong and actively touring. Beyonce is still pushing higher with her Renaissance world tour till October 1. Unlike these personalities, Miley cyrus is unraveling why she wouldn’t risk her life to tour. The singer claims, Touring makes her sick, and sometimes poses health risks to her life.
According to the Diva, it has so much negative effect on her health. She said that performing on stage fosters a dynamic of subject and observer, which isn’t healthy for her. “It erases my humanity and my connection,” she said.
In the years since, Cyrus has only performed one-off shows and headlined festivals, including Glastonbury and Lollapalooza.
Following the March release of her eighth album, Endless Summer Vacation, fans were clamoring for a new round of tour dates , especially now that the industry is back in full swing post-pandemic, with stars like Taylor Swift and Beyonce performing for sold-out stadiums.
But instead, Cyrus shocked fans when she implied she was finished with touring for good since she said touring has a negative impact on her health in an interview. She said;
“Do I want to live my life for anyone else’s pleasure or fulfillment other than my own? Singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love, there’s no connection. There’s no safety.”
After the interview was published Cyrus clarified her comments in an open letter to fans.
“This has nothing to do with a lack of appreciation for the fans & everything to do with I simply don’t want to get ready in a locker room. Which is the reality of life on the road. I just don’t want to sleep on a moving bus. It isn’t what’s best for me right NOW, & if you’ve been following my career you know that I always change and the way I feel about that could too.”
