American singer Miley Cyrus has always been known for speaking out on social issues, particularly issues of mental health. The COVID-19 pandemic has majorly affected mental health globally, with several celebrities speaking out about their own struggles.

Miley too addressed her fans during her Milwaukee Summerfest performance on the 17th of September, to tell them that she would have to pause the show. Miley then spoke to her fans, telling them that she was feeling a panic attack coming on.

Like everyone else, for the last year and a half I’ve been locked away and isolated and it is very stunning to be back in a place that used to feel like second nature. Being onstage used to feel like being at home, and it doesn’t anymore because of how much time I spent at home locked away. And this is very drastic.

Cyrus also acknowledged how the pandemic has bridged the gap between celebrities and their fans, with celebs being more transparent and talking about their struggles openly. After talking to her fans, Cyrus continued the rest of her set, including some old hits and some tracks from her new album “Plastic Hearts.”
