If you haven’t already heard, Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour has been a little, well, uncomfortable for most. Pictures and videos of Miley performing on stage in her usual provocative and crazy ways have been surfacing the internet, and parents who have taken their children to see the pop star's newest tour aren’t pleased at all. People should accept this from Miley, considering her most recent actions, and although her fans may love everything about what she’s doing because that’s who she is, parents are trying to have the tour cancelled.
MusicFix has exclusively learned that Miley’s management team has been getting a ton of complaints saying that she has taken it too far in her performance. So far, Miley has been on stage in a revealing body suit covered in marijuana leaves, riding a hot dog, pretending to give oral sex to a man in a Bill Clinton mask, basically pleasuring herself on top of a car and of course, twerking.
A source revealed to the site that, “Miley’s management have been flooded with complaints, mainly from parents, since her tour began last week in Canada, with calls for the entire tour to be axed.”
Her management team, record label and tour staff - which includes the director, costume department and choreographers - have all been called in for an emergency meeting because of the amount of people who want to pull she show.
One parent has even contacted the boss at Miley’s label, Interscope, saying that they had to walk out of the show way before it ended. They claimed that they would “not subject their nine-year-old to a porn show.” The tour has no age limit or rating guide, the only rule is that children are only allowed to attend if a parent accompanies them.
Since the show began, more and more people have been putting the tickets up on eBay and Stubhub after hearing what Miley has been doing on stage. But Miley is just trying to have fun.
Mercury News reports that Miley spoke about the tour in in a recent press teleconference saying, “I make my albums to be able to travel and to be able to go on the road. That’s really kind of what I love to do more than anything.”
She then went on to explain how she didn’t want to give away any surprises about the tour because “nothing in her life is ever a secret.” Her goal is to just keep the show really fun. “That’s what I think I’m kind of representing more than anything in the past year,” she said. “Fun and [being] carefree, and that’s what the show represents.”
We all know Miley loves performing and she loves shocking people, and although parents may not be pleased with her tour, her fans are loving it. A writer at Entertainment Weekly even posted in their most recent issue the five reasons she believes everyone should go to see the tour. She thinks the crowd of pop culture teens responding to Miley in real time and being fully engaged in the show is extremely entertaining. She also loves the comedy of the show, the costumes Miley wears, the covers of songs she does and the fact that she’s actually singing, and her real voice is amazing.
Some people love what Miley does, and some absolutely hate it, but her fans are really looking forward to seeing her tour so they’re hoping it does not actually get cancelled. Angry parents continue to call in to try to get it cancelled and continue to put their tickets for upcoming shows up for sale online.
“The problem is Miley loves to shock so she decided to take it to the extreme for her Bangerz tour but this time she may have taken it too far,” the source added. Promises have apparently been made by her management to tone down the performance.
