MI­LEY’S Trou­bling Per­for­mance

In Touch (USA) - - In The Know -

Mi­ley Cyrus dressed like a rock star for her sur­prise ap­pear­ance at the iheartra­dio Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Las Ve­gas on Sept. 23 — and seemed to be par­ty­ing like one, too! “It was clear that some­thing was off. Her face was so puffy and she was slur­ring a bit,” says a wit­ness, adding that Mi­ley — who joined Billy Idol, 60, on­stage to per­form “Rebel Yell” — strug­gled to keep up with the rock legend. “She for­got a few verses of the song and even pulled her in-ear mi­cro­phone out. She seemed stoned out of her mind. It was sad.” But not en­tirely out of char­ac­ter. “Mi­ley has told her friends that she drinks and smokes weed be­fore she goes on­stage be­cause it re­laxes her. She thinks it makes her more cre­ative and en­ables her to give a bet­ter per­for­mance,” a pal says of the 23-year-old self-pro­claimed stoner, who briefly quit par­ty­ing this summer af­ter re­unit­ing with beau Liam Hemsworth, 26, but has slowly slipped back into her old ways. “Peo­ple close to her are start­ing to worry that Mi­ley is burn­ing the can­dle at both ends — es­pe­cially now that she’s film­ing The Voice. She just doesn’t have a stop but­ton, which in her case, can be dan­ger­ous.”

“Mi­ley ap­peared so sloppy that peo­ple back­stage were shocked,” says a wit­ness at the iheartra­dio Mu­sic Fes­ti­val on Sept. 23.
