Miley Cyrus is clearing the air regarding her previous statement, revealing she no longer wished to tour.
The 30-year-old “Slide Away” singer recently told British Vogue she no longer desires life on the road.
Cyrus, who released her latest LP “Endless Summer Vacation” in March, shared her feelings regarding performing live with the outlet.
“After the last [tour] I did, I kind of looked at it as more of a question, and I can’t,” the “Jaded” singer said. “Not only can’t, but can’t is your capability, but my desire. Do I want to live my life for anyone else’s pleasure or fulfillment other than mine?” she continued.
On Wednesday, Cyrus clarified her statement in a Notes App letter to her fans and posted it on Twitter and Instagram.

Cyrus also said, “Singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t what I love.” He added she no longer felt any “connection” to performing live or felt safe, and also believed performing live wasn’t “natural.”
She also described life on the road as feeling “isolating” and “alone.” Cyrus explained, “It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,00 people, then you’re alone.”
Cyrus’ statement comes nearly a decade after she stunned the audience at the 2013 VMA Awards with her performance of a “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” medley with Robin Thicke.
The performance’s legacy inspired Cyrus to expand her platform’s reach and attempt to pivot the audience’s focus to something more impactful.
“Not only was culture changed, but my life and career were changed forever,” she told Wonderland Magazine five years ago. It inspired me to use my platform for something much bigger. If the world is going to focus on me and what I am doing, then what I am doing should be impactful and significant,” Cyrus said. (per People magazine)
Inside Cyrus’ Statement
In a three-paragraph Notes App statement written on May 23rd, the “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” singer wrote, “For clarity, I feel more connected to my fans NOW more than ever. When I win, we win. ❤️ Even when I don’t see them face to face every night at a concert, my fans are felt deeply in my heart. I’m constantly creating and innovating new ways to stay connected to the audience I love,” Cyrus continued. “without sacrificing my essentials.”
“Performing for YOU has been some of the best days of my life & we will continue this journey together as we have for almost the last two decades. This has nothing to do with a lack of appreciation for the fans but everything to do with the fact that I don’t want to get ready in a locker room. Which is the reality of life on the road,” she explains.
“These looks I’ve been turning don’t travel well. The archival looks don’t fold. I 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 how I feel about that could too. Love you forever, I’m just on my Endless Summer Vacation,” Cyrus’ statement concludes.
