Well, it's a day ending in -y, so time to get out the Miley checklist for scandals.
Requisite tongue out? Check.
Somewhat questionable hairdo? Check.
Provocative for no reason? Check.

On Saturday, June 14, Miley Cyrus made news by posting a topless, but breast-covered selfie with the hashtag #preshoweralfalfaselfielife. Why? Well, no one really knows. Since leaving the Disney Channel, Miley has made the transition for resident American sweetheart to rebellious and scandalous singer pretty hard to miss.
Since the picture's titled pre-shower, a follow-up was bound to happen, right? Right. This time, she's laying in a bed, posing with a dreamy, sensual expression while wearing what looks to be a bikini. Titling this one "#postshowerinstagramwhoreselfielife,” it's easy for the public to see why she loves the scandal when attention is all on her.
Even when the actions manage to backslide her own news.
In October, the singer will be using a touring Wrecking Ball throughout Australia.
The Sydney Morning Herald's Peter Vincent reports the continent seems to be a little annoyed at the singer’s antics, but the wide range between dates allows for additional dates to be added as needed.
“Miley Cyrus brings Bangerz tour to Australia” describes what people may expect from a Cyrus concert Down Under.
He calls out that “new bratty and explicit public image keeps her regularly in the headlines” yet she somehow managed to avoid Twitter promotion on “about touring Australia.”
Curmudgeonly, the reporter discusses her behaviors with Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs without including Thicke’s willingness to throw the younger woman under the bus to the media. At the time, comparisons to Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson during the Super Bowl were given at the time.
While she’s quite controversial, Cyrus has never denied her actions and need for attention. Often playing up the truth, saying she’s young and doing what others did at the same age without being labeled a Disney starlet.
The contempt from the report is palatable throughout the article, but most especially when referencing why she’s choosing to tour in Oz on the Today Show this week.
It’s pretty simple, too. “Because my records have done so well there."
The tour will start October 10 in Melbourne with stops in Brisbane (Octobter 15), Sydeny (October 17), Adelaide (October 20) and Perth (October 23).
So what can fans expect to hear on stage? Using the site setlist.fm, Vincent assumes the 21-year-old star will perform Dolly Parton’s Jolene, Lana Delray’s Summertime Sadness, and Outkat’s wildly popular Hey Ya! on top the album.
Tickets go on pre-sale at Friday, June 20 (daintygroup.com), while general tickets are available on Monday, June 23 (ticketek.com.au). Ticket prices will be between $100 and $150.00.
