Miley Cyrus has said she was so desperate not to cancel shows after her allergic reaction that she wanted to have a covered-up costume made to disguise the rash.
The Wrecking Ball singer was forced to postpone dates from her Bangerz tour in both the US and Europe after a severe allergic reaction to some antibiotics she had taken which saw her hospitalised.
She said: "There's nothing I'd rather not do than lay in a bed for f***ing two weeks. This was the most miserable two weeks of my life.
"I would get up and I would have this really horrible thing, this like crazy rash, all this s**t and I'm like, 'Yeah but I'm good.'
"They would be like, 'A pop star with a rash is not cute, you cannot come out with this and be on stage.' I'm like, 'Come on, just let me wear a full body suit, I can wear something [Roberto] Cavalli, you can make me a face thing like a full net, I can come out and still twerk it... The IV can come, Victoria my nurse is totally allowed, she can inject me... while I'm up there, it's totally fine'."
The 21-year-old pop star continued: "I was ready to come back and I would be good for two hours, I would not be sick any more, I'd be up like, 'Check me out of this place already, I'm sick of these doctors and nurses.' I was not a fan of my nurse, she was rough and she used big a** needles and I'm not down with that.
"I've been ready for two weeks, I was actually packing and then I got sick again and wasn't able to come back. I had just done an interview with Ryan Seacrest and he was like, 'Are you excited to get back on the road?' I was like, 'Yeah, I'm alive, I'm well, I'm totally ready.'
"Then I laid in my bed and took a nap and then went to my mirror and was like, 'Oh my God,' my whole face was swollen, the reaction was totally back."
Miley admitted she was particularly upset about missing her Amsterdam date: "There's nowhere I'd rather go than Amsterdam, I'm sure you guys could expect that. They were all posting pictures in the coffee houses and I was like, 'I'm glad my band and dancers are having fun on vacation in Amsterdam right now while I'm laying in bed miserable'."
Miley has already performed a tour date at London's O2 and continues to Leeds tonight (May 10) and Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham next Monday, Wednesday and Friday respectively.
