Miley Cyrus is not sitting around wallowing over her split from Kaitlynn Carter. The singer was spotted rocking out at the iHeartRadio Music Festival shortly after their break-up news broke.
Cyrus performed her heart out at the festival. She took the stage in full-on sexy-rocker chick mode. The singer was decked out in a black leather wrap-around halter top and matching pants.
If Cyrus was bothered by her recent split, she was not letting on during her performance. She belted out the fan-favorite tune, ‘Wrecking Ball,’ as well as her latest single ‘Slide Away.’ Ironically both of the songs are reportedly about her relationship with soon to be ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth.

First time covering Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” in Vegas last night! 🖤 My band is so fucking sick and makes it all happen! Getting to perform these songs that are the reason I started making music in the first place feels so RIGHT, FULL CIRCLE as my dad would say. I said it last night “ I play some songs for you ( the crowd) and some for me” but I think it’s important for my audience who maybe didn’t grow up listening to music with their parents , grandparents , older brothers / sisters to get exposed to some of these classics! No one should miss out on songs like these, the youth NEEDS to know what was before to understand how music got to where it is today ! I hope after hearing them at one of my shows you go and check the original because they are masterpieces …. I just do my best!
The rest of her set included Cyrus’ tune, ‘We Can’t Stop’ and two classic rock songs. She went all-in singing Led Zeppelin’s ‘Black Dog’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb.’ Social media footage shows the 26-year-old embracing her inner classic rock goddess when she paid homage to the two rock bands.
After her performance, Cyrus joined her mom Tish in the audience to enjoy the rest of the festival. The mother and daughter duo was spotted having a blast watching, singing and dancing to 80s rock icons Def Leppard.
Earlier in the day, the 26-year-old shared seeing Def Leppard was on her mom’s bucket list. Later on, the proud daughter shared a clip of Tish dancing up a storm to ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me.’ She let her fans know growing up Tish made the kids listen to the legendary band in the car all the time.
It was a family affair for the Cyrus clam. Along with Tish, Trace Cyrus and Brandi Cyrus were both on hand to support their sister in her time of need. People magazine got photos of the famous family hanging out backstage before and after, Miley gave her killer performance.

Right before Miley Cyrus performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, news broke she and Katelynn Carter ended their romance. The two were involved in a PDA filled romance for less than two months.
Although neither one of them ever commented on their romantic status, there was speculation Cyrus had moved in with Carter. It is unclear if the two are still living together, especially since they are reportedly still good friends.
One thing is for sure. Cyrus was not letting whatever is happening with Carter affect her doing her job or having a good time with her family.
