Miley Cyrus was hit pretty hard this week.
Miley Cyrus might be a professional entertainer, but at the end of the day, she’s only human. The Adore You singer had a very emotional moment during her latest show – in Boston – when she performed a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide. Cyrus’s favorite dog Floyd (excellent pet name, by the way) recently passed away, so Cyrus had to tweet about it, naturally. That was on Tuesday. But losing an animal is a pretty big deal, so on Thursday she was still shaken up, when she took the stage in Boston.
Miley faltered during her Boston show, but she had an excuse.
"It's gonna be hard for me to sing this next song. I'm not sounding myself, I don't feel myself," Cyrus, 21, said, clearly emotional. That’s understandable, but the next bit... well, either Miley is a queen among drama queens or Floyd really was a very special creature.
"I'm sure you guys already know, but the reason that I'm so upset is my dog. I shouldn't say he was my favorite, but he was my favorite, and he passed away," she continued. "I just want to do a song for him. We used to always listen to Fleetwood Mac together. This is his favorite song...so I wanna do this song for Floyd. This song is 'Landslide.'"
Miley then performed the Fleetwood Mac classic, with a few choke up moments, which probably only made the song more powerful.
Cyrus's fans at least seemed sympathetic.
"I know I don't mean it but I wish he would've taken me with him," she tweeted on Tuesday. "This is unbearable. What am I gonna do without him? I am miserable...I'm sorry in advance if I am not myself tomorrow, Boston. I will try my best to be my best."
Throughout the years, Cyrus has shared many shots of herself with her Alaskan Klee Kai puppy. RIP Floyd. We’re sure you were a very good dog.
