Miley Cyrus Confirms Black Mirror Role

A few weeks ago, Miley Cyrus released a new song with Mark Ronson, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart.” Today, Cyrus was the guest on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show, where she sang “Silent Night,” mentioned that Sean Ono Lennon will be joining her and Mark Ronson on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and confirmed that she will appear on the upcoming season of the techno-dystopian Netflix series Black Mirror.

She and Ono Lennon will perform the John Lennon/Yoko Ono Christmas hit “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” on SNL. Cyrus mentioned that she might be in a sketch, as well. On her involvement with Black Mirror, Cyrus said to Stern, “If you guess it, then I will shake my head ‘yes.'” Apparently, she nodded. “The minute I say I never want to do something again, all of a sudden, there I am,” she said. “I hate everything, but it was the first time I’ve left somewhere feeling really proud of my work…but you know if I like it that might mean it’s horrible.”

Cyrus described her character as having “a lot of dynamic.” She continued, “There’s a lot of dimension to it, and actually it was while the devastation of Malibu was happening, and it was a really weird learning experience for me, because I was so far from home and the show is already really dark, and it’s already kind of eerie when you’re there the whole time.”

Stern also asked her about her friendship with Ariana Grande. Cyrus said she texted Grande a cat emoji after her breakup with Pete Davidson: “I thought it was slightly even making her feel good, like maybe I was hitting on her a little bit.” Check out clips from the episode below.
