Miley Cyrus’ Iheartradio Music Festival Performance Includes Butt-slapping, Twerking, Crying
Thats why it is so random. We are really big music lovers. We love country, punk, heavy metal, death metal, blues, gospel, etc. Why not blend it all together like a really big soup. When were playing in Volbeat, we love mixing all of those styles and elements that I mentioned before. To me and for all of us in the band, we are not trying to force anything or say we are 100% of one style. So I probably wont do a full blown country album, it will always be a mixture of something else. What do you think that makes your fans feel connected to Volbeat? Thats a very good question. Sometimes I really want to know, but mostly I think I dont want to know. I dont want to think too much about it. I guess the younger fans hear something they really havent heard before. These modern days where everybody wants to be something and wants to be special or have some kind of identity in everything they do. I guess with Volbeat music, it has a certain style they havent heard before so when they pick it up they feel something special and can identify themselves with it. When it comes to the older fans, I guess they can hear inspiration from the music of when they were young kids like the style of Johnny Cash and Elvis.
Cyrus, who will release her new album “Bangerz” next month, also sang a cover of Melanie Safka’s “Look at What They’ve Done to My Song.” The guitar tune featured lyrics like “They think I’m half insane” and “I wish I could find a book to live in.” Cyrus has been added as one of the main performers for the second night at iHeartRadio’s festival at the MGM Grand Arena, joining a list that includes Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney and Drake. Elton John, Katy Perry and Chris Brown performed Friday. Saturday’s day line-up also featured Jason Derulo, Avril Lavigne, The Wanted, The Band Perry and others. ___ Follow Mesfin Fekadu on Twitter: http://twitter.com/MusicMesfin Loading Slideshow Nicki Minaj The singer made these flower-shaped pasties a part of her 2012 tour.
