Miley Cyrus pleased her fans on Monday by debuting a new performance for her The Backyard Sessions series.
In a social media video, the 30-year-old music singer sang out the song Jaded from her recently released album Endless Summer Vacation.
Miley, who just accomplished a professional milestone, wore a skin-baring white mini-dress with big belly cutouts.
As the title suggests, the Tennessee-born artist performed on a circular platform laid in grass on a gorgeous outdoor stage.
Following the release of the new video, Miley uploaded another tweet saying that the project’s debut track, Flowers, has reached ‘#1 for an 8th week.’
In a pair of glossy silver open-toe shoes, the singer-songwriter looked magnificent on stage.
The musician, who rose to fame as Hannah Montana, put rectangular black specs over her eyes.
She stood statuesquely while she sang into a standing microphone with a dangling cable, striking every note precisely.
Destiny Hope Cyrus, who was born Miley Cyrus, wore her two-toned blonde and brown hair in crimp-like waves.
The platinum-colored hair fell over her shoulders as she sang, backed up by backing singers.
The musicians stood out to the side, dressed in black and performing vocals and instruments on a two-step black platform.
The three-minute movie was filled with stunning images as a camera scanned Miley as the sun shone on her, creating a dramatic silhouette.
Miley Cyrus, the daughter of country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus, launched The Backyard Sessions in 2012, and it quickly gained popularity for her haunting interpretation of grandmother Dolly Parton’s 1973 song Jolene.
Jaded, a guitar-driven ballad, is said to be about Cyrus’ brief marriage to ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.
‘Sorry that you’re jaded / I could’ve brought you places / You’re lonely now and I hate it,’ she sings on the single
She kept her Instagram post promoting the session brief, writing: ‘JADED. BACKYARD SESSIONS OUT NOW.’
Miley has also had success with her two tracks Flowers and Muddy Feet, both of which are said to be inspired by the actors’ previous relationship.
The former couple met while shooting The Last Song in 2009. They had an on-again, off-again romance for years before getting married in December 2018.
They divorced in February 2020 after splitting in August 2019, and many believe the lyrics of Flowers and Muddy Feet are about their marriage.
‘Built a house and watched it burn,’ she sings in Flowers, perhaps referring to the Malibu home the couple lost in the 2018 Woolsey Fire.
Muddy Feet has triggered a social media reaction against her Australian ex, with admirers thinking that the lyrics are about his adultery.
Miley’s second tweet included two photographs of her posing in a Versace gown with two tones from the brand’s recent Fashion Week catwalk presentation in Los Angeles.
She appeared alone in one outtake and with the famous Donatella Versace in the other, both in front of a gold curtain.
‘Flowers is #1 for an 8th week,’ she stated in a post to her 202 million followers. Thank you for your continued support for this important music.
The pop star then signed off, saying, ‘I love you all sincerely.’
