Miley Cyrus Denies Drug Overdose, Continues Bangerz Tour
"I didn't have a drug overdose," Miley Cyrus insists.
The singer restarted the Bangerz tour yesterday after a hospital stay sidelined her for three weeks, prompting online rumors. "I took some shitty antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection and I had a reaction," Cyrus asserted in a press conference prior to last night's show at London's O2 Arena.
More Miley Cyrus:
The 21-year old star says she got better the old-fashioned way, turning to yoga, vitamins and honey to replenish herself after being connected to an IV for two weeks.
"I'm the poster child for good health," she insists.
The trouble began April 15 in Kansas City, when Cyrus suffered an allergic reaction to antibiotics following a sinus infection and was forced to cancel her first date. The U.S. dates (listed below) have been rescheduled for August.
Next up, the Bangerz tour hits the First Direct Arena in Leeds, England May 10. It continues through Europe through June 22 before heading back to America at the start of August.
And more good news? This means Cyrus will be able to perform (remotely from Europe) May 18 on the Billboard Music Awards, set for 8 p.m. ET via ABC.
