Miley Cyrus says her Bangerz tour will be educational. Though tweets from tour rehearsals reveal people in fluffy animal costumes and Cyrus straddling a giant hot dog, she told Fuse News: “Even though parents probably won’t think this, I think my show is educational for kids. They’re going to be exposed to art most people don’t know about.
“People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns. I’m excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn’t be accepted, where kids wouldn’t learn about this different kind of art.”
In a filmed interview with her sister Brandi, the singer suggested her tour took inspiration from a controversial female singer of another generation. “”I want to make things look high-end, like something you would see on Madonna’s tour, but make it feel a lot more young,” she said.
She also promised to give away merchandise by dropping it on the audience, even if it meant cutting her own sales. “I made the money I needed to make, and now it’s about putting money into the tour and making sure my fans get the best show, [making] it worth going to see,” she said.
