Miley Cyrus suffered “a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics” and has been hospitalized, her rep told CNN Tuesday.
Her Tuesday night “Bangerz” tour concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, has been canceled, according to a statement from the arena.
“Cyrus has been hospitalized for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics and has been placed on medical rest by her doctors,” the statement said. “She will not be able to perform as scheduled.”
Allergic reactions are the worst. If it was serious enough to cancel a show, then it must have been a pretty serious reaction. Luckily, she managed to get past the sickness to use her Twitter long enough to replace words with numbers, and speak directly to her fans.
“Kansas I promise Im as (heartbroken) as you are. I wanted so badly 2 b there 2night. Not being with yall makes me feel s–ttier than I already do,” she wrote in a Twitter message to fans Tuesday afternoon.
“Mr. Octopussy & some amazing Drs are taking good care of me,” Cyrus wrote in tweet that included a photo of her in a hospital bed wearing a gown. She was holding a green octopus toy in front of her face.
I wonder what kind of antibiotics caused the allergic reaction, and how her medical history didn’t predict or prevent it. Earlier this month, she had to cancel a show because she had the flu. It’s only mid-April, and if you know anything about medicine, antibiotics have no effect on the flu because it’s a virus, and taking them for it could make things worse. So maybe that was a factor? The important thing is that she’s strong enough to tweet. That is a good sign.
