Miley Cyrus has revealed that she did not earn any profit from her 2014 Bangerz Tour. In her new TikTok series called “Used to Be Young”, which was named after her latest song, the singer shared that she funded the extravagant tour herself. Among the tour’s unique features were a tongue slide that served as her entrance and furry, cartoon, and chicken costumes, as well as fake money that rained down from the ceiling. The tour earned $62.9 million and was the 16th highest-grossing tour of that year, but Miley insisted that it was an investment in herself. She had to finance the tour herself because her ideas were deemed too outlandish by others, such as big puppets, oversized beds, and coming out of her own face on her tongue.
Cyrus recently shared on her TikTok series “Used to Be Young” that she spent her hard-earned money on a lavish tour, which included arriving on stage from a tongue slide. She revealed that she wanted to end the tour with a reference to the film “The Truman Show,” so she flew out on a giant hotdog and left through the clouds and exit sign like Jim Carrey does in the movie. Despite not making any money on the tour, Cyrus invested in herself and paid for everything to make it exactly what she and her fans deserved. She celebrated the recent success of her song “Used To Be Young” by sharing black and white snaps of her dancing in her living room, wearing a black minidress, furry white jacket, and a Brilliant Earth pendant around her neck. She thanked her fans for relating to her story and expressed how inspiring it is to see people connect with her music. The post has already received over 414,000 likes from her more than 214 million Instagram followers.
In a recent revelation, Miley shared that investing in herself has led to some outlandish ideas that she had trouble finding support for, including oversized puppets and beds, as well as a performance where she came out of her own face on her tongue. However, the We Can’t Stop singer has also recently admitted that touring takes a toll on her mental health and stifles her ability to write new music. She believes that being constantly observed and subject to the relationship between herself and others erases her humanity and connection, which is crucial for her as a songwriter. Miley’s latest album, Endless Summer Vacation, was released earlier this year.
Getting down: In light of the recent triumph of her hit track, “Used To Be Young,” she posted a series of monochromatic photos showcasing her dancing skills in her own living space.
Looking delighted: In the photos, she appears to be extremely joyful, wearing a chic black minidress paired with a cozy white fur jacket. Completing her look is a stunning pendant from Brilliant Earth as she raises her arms in excitement.
I am thrilled to see the overwhelming love and support that Used To Be Young is receiving globally. It’s incredibly heartening to witness how my story is resonating with people from all walks of life. This is the beauty of creating music, and I am grateful for it. Thank you so much!
In a recent addition to her Used to Be Young series, which was posted earlier this year, the pop star reminisced about how she met and fell in love with her former partner Liam Hemsworth. During the video, she nostalgically recalled their fateful encounter as teenagers while filming The Last Song back in 2008. She expressed her admiration for how their off-screen relationship added a special touch to their coming-of-age drama, which was based on Nicholas Sparks’ novel. As she interacted with her followers, she revealed that in 2008 she was in need of another feature film for Disney but did not want it to be Hannah Montana-related. After creating the script, they proceeded to audition all the candidates for the role of Will, her character’s boyfriend in the movie.
During one of her Used to Be Young series videos, Miley Cyrus reminisced about meeting and falling in love with Liam Hemsworth on set.
