Miley Cyrus taking over Jimmy Fallon's chat show this week
Miley Cyrus has been given her own episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Wednesday (Jun 14).
The singer-songwriter is set to co-host the U.S. chat show and will perform her new singles "Malibu" and "Inspired". Fallon took to Twitter to write:
"Next Wednesday, June 14! We're doing a WHOLE SHOW with @MileyCyrus - comedy, games, music! Can't wait! #MileyOnFallon."
Cyrus released "Inspired," and recently performed it at the One Love Manchester benefit concert in the UK, which was put together by her friend Ariana Grande to raise money for the victims of the terror attack at Manchester Arena on May 22.
She also performed the track on Friday (June 9) in honour of gay pride month. All the proceeds from the song will go to her Happy Hippie Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation that she set up in 2014 to help fight for the rights of homeless youths, and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community, among others.
The 24-year-old musician admits that "Inspired" pays homage to her father Billy Ray Cyrus because he played a "huge part" in who she is, and has always been there for her.
And the "Malibu" hitmaker is proud of her father for not changing who he is and forgetting his roots, despite coming from Nashville, Tennessee, and now residing in California. She said:
"My dad is always in a f***ing baseball hat, he's in sneakers, he's not in cowboy boots and a cowboy hat all the time. He doesn't play the game. And I think that has come from even him having some pride and being like, 'I'm not going to change who I am, to fit in into a country category.'"
