Miley Cyrus chatted with reporters at a press conference at the O2 Arena in London before her show tonight, and the 21-year-old pop star opened up about her recent hospitalization and how thrilled she is to return to her Bangerz tour. "You have no idea how ready I am. There is nothing I would rather not do than lay in a bed for two weeks. It was the most miserable two weeks of my life," she said.
After postponing a handful of her U.S. tour dates last month due to an allergic reaction to antibiotics, Miley was forced to cancel her concerts in Amsterdam and Belgium last week due to "a health setback" when her the reaction returned. However, doctors gave her a clean bill of health over the weekend and she announced on Sunday that she was back on the road.
So what about those rumors that Miley was being hospitalized for something other than a reaction to prescribed medication? "I didn't have a drug overdose," she said. "I took some sh*tty antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection and I had a reaction. I already had a death in my family so my immune system was already low."
"But when people are lying on the internet saying you've had an overdose, that makes you feel better," she sniped. We weren't sure who reported the OD story, but Miley was on the cover of In Touch Weekly in mid-April with the headline "Heart Attack Drama" and claims her hard partying has created a "secret medical crisis." The mag wrote that the "21-year-old star won't stop doing drugs," and that docs warned her, "Change your life or you'll die." Yikes!
Still, it seems like she's doing much better now. "I'm feeling good, I'm alive, so that's f*cking awesome. Look at me, I'm the poster child for good health. I've been laying down for three weeks. I'm gonna go off -- I'm like a star waiting to explode."
So what's she doing now to take care of herself? "I'm on this crazy vitamin rush and crazy honey and lavender," she said, adding, "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*cked up, they definitely couldn't do my show."
"I'm gonna f*ck this place up," she concluded. "We're gonna have a lot of fun. We're gonna be, like, tops off, f*cking screaming. You have no idea how ready I feel." Can't wait to see pics and video from her show tonight!
Actually, we might!
