Not a wrecking ball anymore... just a wreck! Superstar Miley Cyrus used to dominate the airwaves and sell out arenas around the world, but OK! has learned that low ticket sales and recent Billboard misses have left the singer seeking an alternative to save her career.
Industry insiders are claiming that panic began to set in after her last album Plastic Hearts, and the accompanying singles, failed to hit the top spot on the Billboard charts. Despite heavily promoting the album, the 2020 release debuted at #2, with its lead single “Midnight Sky” coming in at a disappointing #14 on the Hot 100 chart.
Her follow-up single "Prisoner," a duet with pop Princess Dua Lipa, was a flop, peaking at #54 on the charts.
To make matters worse, OK! learned that the former Disney star’s concerts aren't selling out like the old days. Music sources reveal that her Fourth of July show at Resorts World in Las Vegas ticket sales were abysmal, with the venue desperately giving away tickets for free to fill seats hours before the show.
As far as the 28-year-old singer’s upcoming Milwaukee show, there are still thousands of unsold tickets, which isn’t a good sign for Cyrus’ future as a popstar.
"People seem to have tired of Miley and moved on to newer acts like Olivia Rodrigo," an insider exclusively spills to OK!. “Her act seems stale and she seems confused on how to fix it." Industry sources believe that a Las Vegas residency could be the only thing to save Cyrus’s career from completely flatlining.
"Things took a turn after her divorce," a source dishes to OK!, referencing her split from The Hunger Games star, Liam Hemsworth. "Her core audience has definitely dried up."
Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the set of their 2010 film The Last Song and began dating shortly after. The duo tied the knot in December 2018, and split a mere seven months later. Their divorce was finalized in January 2020.
