Last night the infamous Miley Cyrus, you know that little known singer who turned from a child star into a foam finger wielding woman, brought her tour twerkathon, otherwise known as the Bangerz tour, to the O2 arena in our fair capital. We joined the crowds of ‘Smilers’ who journeyed to see one of the most talked about women in the world perform her mega hits, We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball. One thing was certain, all that talk is not going to dry up anytime soon if our experience at the Bangerz tour is anything to go by. From riding an inflatable hot dog to discovering quite how vast Cyrus’s collection of cowboy boots actually is, here are the five things we learnt from our encounter with Miley….
1. She Is 'The Poster Girl Of Good Health'

When we attended the pre tour press conference we were certain that some dynamite material would land in our laps and boy Miley did not disappoint! But the most shocking thing was that Miley claimed that all of her behaviour is not down to alcohol or drugs, she is in fact just high off vitamins, claiming that she is, ‘the poster girl for good health.’ The singer carried on to say, ‘I'm probably the only one on this tour who doesn't drink or smoke before a show, as I take this really seriously. It's almost like being an athlete being up here, because if someone was f**ked up, they definitely couldn't do my show.’ Last night we stood in awe of THE Miley Cyrus body and it was clear that this was a girl who doesn’t mess around.
2. She Can't Let Go Of Her Country Girl Past

Miley is living proof that you can take the girl out of Nashville but you can’t take the country out of the girl. The singer topped off her new wardrobe of barely-there bodies with a heavy dose of country paraphernalia, from neckerchiefs to cowboy hats, there was no shortage of honky-tonk! Miley has certainly lassoed one of the most impressive collections of cowboy boots known to mankind with the twerkalicous performer WERKing everything from fringed to yellow boots. Yeeha cow gurl, we totally enjoyed saddling up for our trip to Mileywood!
3. She Owes A Lot To Her Swear Jar

Someone certainly owes a lot to the swear jar don’t they Miley? If Cyrus was given a pound for every time she swore last night she would practically be a millionaire. Wait she already is, a practically a billion times over! Miley arrived on stage via a joyous slide down a sculptural replica of her massive tongue and before she even sung a single note the copious amount of swear words flooded out of her mouth in a speed akin to the Niagara Falls. We are all for freedom of speech but perhaps calling Jolene a C*** during her acoustic country style performance was perhaps pushing it… maybe a touch at least!
4. She Owns More Leotards Than An Olympic Gym Team

Every so often Miley twerked off stage leaving her harem of fascinating figures to entertain the crowds. When the singer reappeared each and every time she was wearing another leotard, the girl must own more bodies than an Olympic gym team! Watch out Louis Smith, you have got some serious competition in the lycra department, and this girl has the body to match too- talk about WERKing your assets! From homages to Kylie circa ‘I Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ and Geri Halliwell circa her Ginger Spice glory days to a leotard decorated with lashings of Miley money bills, it was quite the collection. If only all Olympic outfits were this jazzy.
5. She Has 'The Biggest Weiner In London'

Miley clearing has a soft spot for big bird if the volume of yellow fluffy items she wore is anything to go by. The highlight of the night came when the singer, adorned in a fury yellow coat, straddled an oversized hot dog and whilst flying around on it in mid-air she claimed, ‘I have the biggest wiener in London!’ With statements like that she is the woman of our generation. Fact.
