Miley Cyrus Plans Her Next Act—Without Leaving Home
Writing, directing and hosting a talk show, all while on lockdown, Cyrus has a found a new way to inspire and uplift her fans. What does it mean for her future?
Miley Cyrus first rose to stardom as a young teen, playing the title role on Hannah Montana, the popular Disney sitcom that ran from 2006 to 2011. On the show, she played a regular girl who secretly moonlights as a pop star. Then, as she entered her 20s, Cyrus herself emerged as a fully formed, grown-up pop star, crashing into the millennial zeitgeist with hits like “Wrecking Ball.” Since the early days of the Covid-19 crisis, however, the 27-year-old has been experimenting with a new role: talk show host. “It’s hilarious people call this a TV show when it’s just Instagram Live,” Cyrus says from isolation at her home in Calabasas, California, where on weekdays at 11:30 a.m. she has been broadcasting her interview program, Bright Minded: Live with Miley, to her 107 million followers. The show is also uploaded to her YouTube channel. (Full disclosure: I am YouTube’s director of fashion and beauty.)
Cyrus will be performing her hit song from Hannah Montana: The Movie, “The Climb,” with a powerful message about not giving up, during the stream. The celebrities and other guests involved will offer recognition to individual high schools and colleges throughout the U.S. on a state-by-state basis, with photos and videos of the class of 2020 as well as messages from principals and deans woven throughout.
The event will take place on Friday, May 15 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT and will take place over the course of several hours. It will be streamed over Facebook Watch, with individual clips being posted to the official Instagram account and celebrities’ handles as well. It may be an unorthodox celebration this year, but it’s a happy time nevertheless!
Sitting next to a fire pit that lent the performance a red glow, Cyrus and her socially distanced guitarist Andrew Watt (who previously revealed he tested positive to COVID-19) delivered a faithful rendition of the 1975 single, with Cyrus harmonizing along with the riff at the song’s end.
This isn’t Cyrus’ first time tackling a Pink Floyd classic live: In September 2019, at Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio Music Festival, the singer added the band’s “Comfortably Numb” (and Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”) to her set list.
The “Wish You Were Here” performance marks the second time SNL at Home has recruited an artist to play an acoustic cover of a topical classic rock song: Last episode, it was Coldplay’s Chris Martin covering Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.”

Miley Cyrus has cancelled her bushfire relief concert in Melbourne due to fears over the spread of coronavirus.
The U.S. singer, 27, was scheduled to headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief fundraiser at Lakeside Stadium on March 13.
She tweeted on Tuesday afternoon (AEST) that she’d been advised not to fly to Australia amid the global health crisis.
I am so disappointed to not be there, but I have to do what is right to protect the health and safety of my band and crew. I will still be making a donation to help the victims of the Australian bush fire. I’m sorry to miss everyone in Australia, but I will be back soon.

It’s 2020, and a new era of Miley Cyrus is imminent.
On Jan. 1, the singer uploaded a retrospective video featuring highlights (and some low times) from the past 10 years of her life that she’s calling “10 Years in 10 Minutes.”
The teaser recaps an entire decade of Miley and ends with previously unseen footage that seems to give a taste of what Cyrus has in store next. The last 10 seconds of the video, captioned with “2020 New Era Starts Now,” show her posing in an “I Am Here” crop top to a new song fans believe may be called “Bad Karma.”
On a scale of one to Jeff Goldblum, how high are your energy levels right now? Before you answer, consider the facts of today: it’s a Friday, you just got paid, it’s also November, there are two months left in the decade and a brand-new jazz album is set to soundtrack your next soirée. Did we mention it’s by Jeff Goldblum and The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra? Did we also mention that it includes collaborations with artists such as Gregory Porter and Miley Cyrus? And a swooning lullaby from the man of the hour himself? So! Much! Joy!
