The one and only Miley Cyrus joined #MostRequestedLive for an interview via Zoom to talk about her hot new song, “Midnight Sky,”!
Check out some of the highlights and then watch her full interview below!
On the most unique thing about making “Midnight Sky”: “One, I would say — something that I haven’t actually done in my career, and that I’m doing now, which I love — is taking advantage of the way that we can deliver music to our audience and to our fans. The fact that I can write a song — I only wrote the song like 4 to 6 weeks ago — and now put it out, and saying, ‘I’m talking to you in real time, I’m telling my real story,’ not something that I felt a year ago and I have outgrown, because also you’re less passionate about it. For me, it grows and evolves so quickly. This is such an amazing time that we live in that we can really talk directly to our audience.”
On self-directing the “Midnight Sky” music video: “This is one of the proudest moment I’ve had in a really long time, when it comes up and says, ‘self-directed.’ I’ve always been kind of behind the creative — obviously half the time no one could come up with these things: I want someone to be eating a money sandwich in ‘We Can’t Stop,’ I want them to be cutting their fingers and goo coming out — so a lot of this is always coming from me. But being able to polish my craft as a filmmaker over this quarantine period, I’ve been researching and learning, doing a lot of sessions with camera operators, and directors of photography. I jumped into the deepest waters — the best way to learn how to swim — and I did, I swam, didn’t sink, so I’m really feeling lucky for that.”
On the meaning behind the disco ball in “Midnight Sky”: “The disco ball, what it really reflects, literally, is this idea that a bunch of broken pieces can come together to make an entire being that then, when the light is shined upon this brokenness, people are really mesmerized and in awe, and drawn to — we’re drawn to each-other’s brokenness because we all connect trough the brokenness.”
On how she’s grown and what she’s learned over the last few months: “I’ve come to the realization that I’m allowed to really love things about myself, and I’ve been writing down these qualities about myself that have nothing to do with fame or fortune, but have to do with me and my integrity as a person, and writing the things about myself that I don’t dig. One of those are — I put it in the song — ‘Can’t bite the devil on my tongue.’ I don’t like that about myself. I don’t like that tongue is driven by the devil and says things that I don’t mean to hurt people. So that’s something I’ve been working on, is watching what I say, and knowing that the words have really deep meaning.”

Miley Cyrus has kicked off BBC Radio 1’s 2020 Live Lounge Month performing her new single “Midnight Sky”, “Slide Away”, a cover of Billie Eilish’s “my future”, as well as an extra cover of “Take It To The Limit” by The Eagles.
33. MILEY CYRUS – Billboard’s “100 Greatest Music Video Artists of All Time”
Why She’s a Video Icon: Miley has managed to make headlines with nearly every music video she drops — especially when one ushers in a new look — simultaneously inspiring spoofs and Halloween outfits for years to come.
The MTV Classic: The shocking, Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball” stands as the quite possibly only hammer-licking music video around — and proved that, if you’re Miley, you can still do the most while wearing the least.
Worth YouTubing: The video for the foreshadowing track “Can’t Be Tamed,” in which the pop star literally breaks free from her cage, serves as air-tight proof that (as Miley claims a decade later on her latest single) she was born to run. — L.H.
NME “The slinky #MidnightSky sees Miley Cyrus channel her inner Prince, and it results in a synth-pop smasher.”
The Guardian “See my lips on her mouth, everybody’s talking now,” muses 2013’s most wanted on this disco-tinged, post-divorce banger. The Milky Milky Milk hitmaker sounds suitably refreshed after the double-meh of 2017’s country singer rebirth and last year’s, erm, Cattitude. Midnight Sky is everything all that wasn’t: impassioned, energised and delivered by someone brave enough to sport a platinum-blonde mullet.
“In honor of my Mammies funeral #Mammie4Evr limited tees are up on shop.Mileycyrus.com….” Miley tweeted out, Monday. She promises to donate a portion of profits to a Tennessee community group meant to help children stay in school. The organization is a tribute to Loretta Finely’s preschool teaching career and college graduation at 70-years-old.
“Mammie,” as Cyrus affectionately called her, was a fan favorite, many times accompanying the 27-year-old Pop star to red carpet events while sporting an enlarged pair of fierce transition shades. It’s that image of Loretta throwing up a peace sign that christens the shirt’s front side. The back displays a rallying cry “MAMMIE 4EVR.”
Over the weekend, Miley shared emotional tributes to her grandmother on Instagram. “Even though you are gone…. NOTHING has or ever will change. You will FOREVER be my inspiration and fashion icon,” the caption reads. “Even more than that, the ultimate model of being a true LIGHT in a dark world. You are sunshine.”
Miley Cyrus has marked seven years since the release of her hit single ‘Wrecking Ball’.
The pop megastar took to Instagram to share a clip of the viral music video for the track, which saw her swinging across the room on a giant wrecking ball in the nude, and admitted it “feels like a lifetime ago” that she put it out.
She wrote: “7 years of Wrecking Ball. My concept of time is completely askew. Feels like a lifetime ago… but somehow only yesterday. Thank you for all the support you gave me then and of course the love you’re continuing to show my art today. Forever grateful & inspired. (sic)”
The single was taken from Miley’s fourth LP, 2013’s ‘Bangerz’, and she later admitted she regretted the song and the promo.
The ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ hitmaker confessed that she would hate for it to be played at her funeral.
Speaking in 2017, she quipped: “Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever. I am never living that down.
“I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball, no matter how much I frolic with Emu [her dog] I am always the naked girl on the wrecking ball.
“I should have thought of how long that was going to follow me around.
“It’s my worst nightmare, that song being played at my funeral — that is my worst nightmare.”
Meanwhile, Miley recently dropped the lead single, ‘Midnight Sky’, from her upcoming seventh studio album.
The popular track is the biggest radio song of her career.
She reacted: “Back in the studio and just heard that Midnight Sky is having the biggest radio add week of my CAREER and it’s #1 most added at Pop and Hot AC.
“Every radio programmer who added [my song] is rad as f*** and everyone who didn’t, well….. (sic)”
It looks like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion may be on their way to their first No. 1 in the U.K. with “WAP,” though so far the cut hasn’t been able to put a stop to one track’s month-long run atop the chart. Will it be able to do so next time around? It’s impossible to say…but it will surely be a tight race.
Here’s a look at five of the most important moves on this week’s U.K. singles chart.
No. 2 – Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion – “WAP”
No. 15 – Miley Cyrus – “Midnight Sky” Miley Cyrus has officially kicked off the next era of her career with new single “Midnight Sky,” which begins its time on the U.K. songs ranking at No. 15. The tune is now her eighteenth top 40 in the country and her first of 2020. The cut precedes her forthcoming album She Is Miley Cyrus, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
