She’s just being Miley! Pop star Miley Cyrus kicked off her Bangerz world tour on Feb. 14, and as expected, it was no “Hannah Montana” concert. On Feb. 15, Rolling Stone highlighted the top moments from the Vancouver, Canada, kickoff, which included a steady stream of revealing outfits and risqué moments.
Cyrus opened the show by mocking her famous tongue wagging. A massive 50-foot screen projected a video of the singer’s head, before she made her grand entrance by sliding down an inflatable tongue.
The singer later climbed aboard a 20-foot long hotdog, and also danced with a backup dancer who was dressed like a joint. There was also a racy video montage of the 21-year old singer in various states of undress.
As for the music, in addition to her hits like “We Can’t Stop” and ”Wrecking Ball,” Cyrus performed her own version of Outkast's "Hey Ya!" as well as a cover of her godmother Dolly Parton's classic song, "Jolene." While most of the songs were from her more “adult” recordings, the singer did throw her old “Hannah Montana” fans a bone with the encore song, “Party in the U.S.A.”
Last year, Cyrus told Billboard she can’t stand listening to the music she recorded back in her Disney days. “Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it's so irritating to me because I can't just erase that stuff and start over," she said. But, clearly, “Party” made the cut for this concert.
The Bangerz tour continues across North America through April, before heading to Europe on May 2.
