Miley Cyrus Breaks Down In Tears Over Heartbreak During Super Bowl Concert Performance

Miley Cyrus fought back tears during a gig ahead of the 2021 Super Bowl.

The 28-year-old found herself struggling to sing her 2013 smash hit Wrecking Ball while headlining the TikTok Tailgate gig in Tampa, Florida.

Fans were left concerned for the star as she teared up during the song's chorus, as Miley told the crowd: "It never gets easier" and that her heart gets broken "a lot."

"Singing that song, Wrecking Ball, about feeling completely broken and shattered... everyone suffering is different, even everyone's threshold of pain," Miley said mid-performance, according to People magazine.

"I like to think I've got a pretty high tolerance, I wear a lot of glitter and I wear a lot of armour, and I also wear my heart on my sleeve.

"And for that, it gets broken a lot and a lot of us have been feeling broken this year."

During a performance of the track at a festival in Las Vegas in 2013, the former Hannah Montana star wiped tears from her eyes.

Miley was thought to be crying about her ex-partner Liam Hemsworth at the time. The pair split in 2013, only to reconcile their relationship three years later before marrying in 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The concert - attended by health workers who have had their coronavirus vaccine - also saw Miley perform with special guests, including music icon Billy Idol.

Meanwhile, hip-hop singer The Weeknd headlined the Super Bowl's 2021 half-time show, in which he aimed to give fans a "cinematic experience" during his performance.
