American singer Miley Cyrus performs on stage during a show at Movistar Arena on March 21, 2022 in Bogota, Colombia.

Though Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” has dominated the airwaves since its January release, the singer-songwriter doesn’t have any plans to tour any time soon. Miley, 30, recently discussed the success of her hit single and her feelings about touring with British Vogue.

No Connection

Miley said of touring, “It’s been a minute.” The last headline arena show the musician did was almost ten years ago, in 2014. “I kind of looked at it as more of a question. And I can’t,” she said. “Not only ‘can’t’ because can’t is your capability, but my desire. Do I want to live my life for anyone else’s pleasure or fulfillment other than my own? And, you know what… I love performing but pretty much for them,” Cyrus said of her fans. However, she isn’t fond of touring.

“Singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love,” she said. “There’s no connection. There’s no safety. I never need to be a master at the craft of tricking an audience,” she said while shrugging. “It will set itself on fire all by itself.”

Fake It Till You Make It

“Flowers” was written in “a really different way,” Cyrus revealed. “The chorus was originally: ‘I can buy myself flowers, write my name in the sand, but I can’t love me better than you can.’ It used to be more like the 1950s. The saddest song. Like, ‘Sure, I can be my own lover, but you’re so much better,’” she said. In the end, she rejected the gloomy vibes and turned it into more of a “little fake it till you make it. Which I’m a big fan of.”

Once the song was completed, she knew that it would be a hit. “I’ve been doing this for a while,” she said with confidence. Though Miley is sober, she went out with her friends to celebrate the night of the release. Lil Nas X walked into the club and asked her if she was anxious about “how successful ‘Flowers’ is?’” Recalling that night, Cyrus told him, “‘No. I might be number one now, but number two is on its way.’ Everything is seasonal.”

The singer has a mature way of looking at things in the music industry. She has now realized that headlines will say things like, “‘This is Miley’s moment.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s exactly what it is. It’s a moment. And it will be over.’” The Hannah Montana alum prefers living honestly. “I don’t like to stay big,” she added. “I’ve been in the Garden of Eden before, and I’ve taken the red apple, and it never feels good.”
