While some audiences would be left shocked to see a singer emerge on stage in their knickers, many of Miley’s fans just assumed the ‘We Can’t Stop’ starlet was showing off a new outfit, leading the 21-year-old to sheepishly explain the situation via Twitter.
Miley has confirmed that this wasn't an intentional outfit choice
“Not a new outfit for 23 I didn't make my quick change and I couldn't not come out for the song so I just had to run out in my undies :(,“ she wrote on the social networking site.
“Never happened to me before. But I love my fans as much as they love me! I couldn't miss 23,” added Miley.
Meanwhile at another gig this week, a fan was reportedly arrested after gaining access a restricted area at Nebraska venue, the Century Link Centre.
Digital Spy reports that an 18-year-old fan used a VIP pass from one of the tour drivers to get backstage, where he headed straight for Miley's dressing room.
After leaving a note with his name and Twitter handle in the star's private room, the fan was arrested by Omaha police on suspicion of criminal trespassing.
Love her or not, Miley knows how to work a marijuana leaf-print thong leotard
The singer’s outfits and stage antics have had tongues wagging - including her own - since the tour kicked off last month.
With props including a giant hotdog (that Miley straddles, naturally) and numerous racy costumes, the ‘Bangerz’ tour has given Miley’s fans plenty to chat about.
