Miley Cyrus has tested positive for COVID-19 following her whirlwind world tour, which saw her travel to the likes of Brazil and Colombia over the course of a month.
The singer, 29, announced her health update via Twitter on Friday, writing: ‘Traveling around the world, playin for a 100,000 people a night & meeting hundreds of fans a day the chances of getting Covid are pretty high.’
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker added that although she tested positive for the infectious disease, she is not too upset about it: ‘I have Covid now but it was definitely worth it.’

The Tennessee-born star was however upset that she would miss out on her upcoming Grammys weekend performance benefiting Steven Tyler’s fund.
‘Unfortunately because of this I’m missing out on Janie’s Fund which sucks because it’s a charity that’s super important to me & my friend Steven Tyler.’
However, she appeared to be looking on the bright side and assured fans that she is feeling fine, despite testing positive.

Miley has had a busy couple of months. In March, she has played shows in Chile, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil.
That same month she also suffered a terrifying incident when her private jet was forced to make an emergency landing after it was struck by lightning on its way to Asunción, Paraguay.
She talked about the scary ordeal at Lollapalooza Brazil while making a heartfelt speech in tribute to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last Friday.
‘We had to make this emergency landing and the first person that I called was Taylor, because he was already at the [Asunciónico Music Festival in Paraguay],’ said Cyrus, who then teared up while performing Angels Like You in tribute to the drummer.
