We’re sending all the good vibes we’ve got, Miley Cyrus! On Tuesday, October 8, the singer broke the news to fans that she’d been hospitalized ahead of her scheduled appearance at Gorillapalooza, a concert to save the gorillas. On her Instagram Story, she shared a photo from her hospital bed, revealing an IV in her arm as she recuperated. Though she didn’t reveal exactly what was wrong, she promised her followers that she’s on the mend.
“Trying to heal as quick as I can to make it to Gorillapalooza [with Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi and Bruno Mars] this weekend!” Miley, 26, wrote. “Send gooooood vibes my way! Hoping the rock star gods send me a boost of bad ass and help me kick this s–t to the curb where it belongs! [We’ve] got gorillas to save!” Luckily, the star had her mom around to help her feel better. “How you present yourself can determine how you feel!” she wrote in a second Story. “Thank you, mama, for helpin’ this little sickyyy look a little bit better by brushin’ my hair for me. @tishcyrus Mommies are the best!”
In her previous Instagram Story, the star hinted that she’d been feeling sick the day before. On Monday, October 7, she shared a photo of her new boo, Cody Simpson, as he played music for her. “The [doctor] is back,” she captioned the photo, hinting that he was helping her feel better. She also jokingly referencing a painting in the background of the photo that reads, “Mom, I’m gay,” as she added, “BTW, Mom … there’s been a change of plans.”
The two musicians were recently linked after they were caught kissing following her split from Kaitlynn Carter. The Disney Channel alum confirmed the romance herself on her Instagram Story and Twitter in the following days. “Can a girl not get a f–king açaí bowl and a morning makeout session in peace?!?!” she joked before getting serious. “I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but ‘Netflix and chill.’ … This ‘dating’ thing is new to me too,” she admitted. “Get used to me dating — this is where I am at!”
And it seems that Cody is the perfect partner for the star right now. Not only is he taking care of her while she’s sick, he’s also been taking care of her emotionally. “Miley and Cody are old friends. Right now she needs someone she can trust and rely on and Cody is that guy, he gets her,” an insider told In Touch exclusively. “He’s like her comfort food. She needs Cody in her life right now.”
