This is not Cyrus’ first virtual performance amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In May, Miley Cyrus performed her 2009 hit “The Climb” during #Graduation2020: Facebook and Instagram Celebrate the Class of 2020. During the coronavirus pandemic, Cyrus spread positivity with her weeks-long Instagram Live series Bright Minded, in which she interviewed celebrity guests and spoke candidly about mental health.
More recently, the star opened up about her decision to embrace sobriety following vocal cord surgery in November 2019. “I’ve been sober sober for the past six months,” she said to Variety.
“At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery, but I had been thinking a lot about my mother. My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable.”
Cyrus added, “It’s really hard because especially being young, there’s that stigma of ‘you’re no fun.’ It’s like, ‘Honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun.’ The thing that I love about it is waking up 100%, 100% of the time. I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.”
