Miley Cyrus recalls scaring Ariana Grande by flirting with her during the duet… and reveals she was filming Black Mirror when her Malibu house burned down
Two-time Grammy Award nominee Miley Cyrus recalled the time she managed to “scare off” two-time Grammy Award winner Ariana Grande by flirting with her too much while they performed their first-ever duet back in 2015.
The two former child stars—both 30—were singing a cover of Crowded House’s 1986 song “Don’t Dream It’s Over” for Happy Hippie Shows: The Backyard Sessions while dressed as animals when the awkward moment hit.
During the duet, Miley (born Destiny) misses her turn while saying something to Ariana – who cringes off the inflatable couch – and proceeds to apologize to the band and crew: “Sorry, I was flirting, sorry!”
Cyrus, who has 346.5 million followers on social media, admitted via TikTok on Tuesday: “I was flirting with her, and she was a little bit scared. We were having fun.”
“Ariana is a real friend,” the Tennessee-born, sexy pop star continued. There was never a time when I asked her to do something important to me that she didn’t do, and the same for me with her.
Grande retweeted Miley’s nostalgic story with the caption: “Honey..love you always @mileycyrus.” We #Got_Got_Grown_To_Youth!
Cyrus then responded to the sweet R&B song via Instastory: “Love you 5ever buddy.”
The hit company, The Flowers, is hosting a TikTok series called Used to Be Young to coincide with their new single and eighth album, Endless Summer Vacation.
In Season 36, Miley revealed that she was filming her role as Ashley O in the fifth season of the Twilight Zone sci-fi series Black Mirror on Netflix when the $2.525 million four-bedroom Malibu home burned down in the 2018 Woolsey Fire.
“I was in South Africa, but the action was taking place in Malibu. It was just a real ride,” recalls Cyrus, who has been sober for more than two years.
“Maybe two or three years after this happened, I don’t understand it, but I would have an anxiety attack with the accompanying vision of being chained to a stretcher.
‘So I’d have these dreams anytime I went to perform, and I thought it was just an anxious, meaningless vision, but in reality as my house was burning, I was chained to a stretcher with my hands in handcuffs tied to a cart. Bed.’
The day after Dolly Parton’s two-story home was destroyed, she had to shoot a dance-filled music video for pop star Ashley O: “The Show Must Go On.”
The three-episode fifth season of Black Mirror was by far the worst-reviewed, with only a 66% approval rating from critics (out of 150 reviews) and a 51% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Miley recorded her debut album in 2005 at the Rainbowland recording studio on the two-acre compound she shared with then-fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
Cyrus will then compete for five Moonman Awards — including video and song of the year for Flowers — at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, which will air next Tuesday.
The HR actress — who gets 70.8 million monthly listeners on Spotify — will release the 10th anniversary reissue of her fourth studio album, Bangerz, on September 29.
