8 Most Outrageous Moments of Miley Cyrus' 'Bangerz' Show

Cyrus was hospitalized on April 15th and placed on medical rest by her doctors, forcing her to cancel shows in Kansas City and St. Louis, Us Weekly reports. She had canceled her Charlotte, North Carolina show the previous week because of what was reported at the time to be a flu-like illness.

"Miley was suffering from a sinus infection during her tour," said an official statement that Cyrus posted to Twitter on Thursday. "She was prescribed the antibiotic Cephalexin which she's now suffered an allergic reaction to. This type of extreme reaction can last from five to 27 days in these types of cases. She will remain hospitalized and is under a doctor's care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time. Miley is devastated about missing shows and possibly disappointing her fans."

(Cyrus posted the note along with the message, "Shut the fuck up & let me heal. Stop scaring my family, friends, & fans.") 

Cyrus is still scheduled to kick off the European leg of her tour on May 2nd in Amsterdam. Her rescheduled U.S. tour dates will run between August 1st and August 14th, with two additional shows in Pittsburgh and Chicago.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
