Miley Cyrus spoke to Vogue.com about her Global Goal: Unite For Our Future performance, and what inspired her outfit choices.
Miley performed a cover of Dolly Parton’s version of “Help!” which is originally by The Beatles, with the performance being recorded at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena in California.
The purpose of the concert Global Goal: Unite For Our Future was to end social injustices and continue fighting against COVID-19.
Cyrus also looked to The Beatles’s original album artwork for “Help!” and gave the oversized blue shirts worn by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr a more glamorous twist.
But instead of a tent-like top, Cyrus’s rendition was an ab-revealing gown complete with dazzling crystals, an asymmetric sleeve, and a high slit courtesy of Alexandre Vauthier couture. “I wanted it to stay vibrant and hopeful like the melody of the song,” Cyrus tells Vogue of her look. “I love how this dress represents ‘Glam Rock.’ A little more [David] Bowie than The Beatles—with a nod to Dolly [Parton], whose version of ‘Help!’ I used as inspiration for my cover.” Parton, who is Cyrus’s godmother, is surely proud of the glam end result.

With the anniversary of the groundbreaking Stonewall riots and Christopher Street Liberation Day on the horizon, SiriusXM and Radio Andy (Ch. 102) are providing all the music you need for a weekend-long Pride celebration. Andy Cohen’s Pride Radio, a limited edition pop-up channel taking over Radio Andy, will launch on Friday, June 26 at 5pm ET.
The exclusive takeover will celebrate Pride all weekend long with beloved Pride anthems, exclusive DJ sets and celebrity Guest DJs. Listeners will be able to hear music from Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Rihanna, George Michael, Cher, Britney Spears, Diana Ross, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, and more. While Pride may look different in the age of social distancing, celebrants can enjoy a parade of jams all the way through Sunday, June 28 (with Guest DJ sets available On Demand).
Miley Cyrus was one of the first celebrities to adapt to the new COVID-19 world order. Not long after stay-at-home rules were implemented, the singer-actor launched “Bright Minded,” a talk show on Instagram Live with a guest list that has included Elton John, Demi Lovato, Kerry Washington and Selena Gomez. “I loved how there was really no pressure. It was like, if the show went over, if the show had some tech problems, it was just about doing it for the love of it,” she says on Tuesday’s episode of the Variety and iHeart podcast “The Big Ticket.”
Asked if she’s developing “Bright Minded” as a television talk show, Cyrus teases, “We’ll see.”
Before the pandemic, the former “Hannah Montana” star dipped back into acting with a starring role in an episode of the Netflix anthology series “Black Mirror.” She plays Ashley O, a seemingly happy pop star who wants to move on from her controlling manager, her aunt Catherine (Susan Pourfar). When her aunt slips her too many pills, Ashley falls into a coma, but a fan (Angourie Rice) helps her wake up and break free. Cyrus is being submitted for Emmy consideration in the guest actress in a drama series category.
