Inspirations, they come from everywhere and anywhere.
Twerk princess Miley Cyrus, debuted a new song while performing at Art Basel recently. The song called “The Twinkle Song,” she said was inspired by the passing of her friend’s cat.
“I’ve never played by myself on a stage before and you’ve never played a song that I’ve only played in my living room before, so I’m a little nervous,” she said standing before her audience in a sparkling silver wig.
Cyrus explained the song had been inspired by dreams of the night her friend’s cat dies, saying, “I feel like her cat kind of told me what I was supposed to say to get her through it… It was more therapy to me than anything.”
In the same performance, Cyrus smoked pot onstage, sang a duet with a topless woman and was joined by Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.
