With the anniversary of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain’s death just days ago, many artists have paid tribute at their shows. However, Miley Cyrus decided it was needed to pay tribute to her dog, Floyd, who was allegedly killed by a coyote April 1.
Cyrus is known to have a deep emotional attachment to her pets, for they have helped her through her rough times with her ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth.
At her Bangerz tour stop in Boston on Wednesday, Cyrus sang her rendition of “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac to pay tribute to Floyd because “it was his favorite song.”
Many times throughout the sound checks and concert, Cyrus had to stop singing to cry.
“It’s gonna be hard for me to sing this next song. I’m not sounding myself, I don’t feel myself,” she told the crowd.
Cyrus also paid another tribute to Floyd Saturday in Brooklyn… this time with props.
The stage featured a 60-foot tall blown up figure of Floyd during the singer’s performance of “Can’t Be Tamed.”
During the performance, Cyrus stroked the huge replica of her late dog, and fell to her knees and took a brief break from singing to weep.
Though she had to endure what she has called the “second worst day of [her] life,” Miley may be alright, for she was surprised with a new puppy given to her by her mother.
Though Miley adores her new dog, she is still not over Floyd. “So torn. I love having little Moonie cuddle w me and Mary Jane but just don’t know if I’m ready to love again.” Cyrus tweeted.
It looks like it may take a few more tears at her shows, but Cyrus aims to recover. “I just gotta take it one day at a time and take in all the love little Moonie is giving me.” she said in another tweet.
