The Amazing Reason Why Miley Cyrus Wasn’t at the ’17 Teen Choice Awards

By  | 

Last night’s Teen Choice Awards were great and all, but one thing (actually, person) was very obviously missing — Miley Cyrus. The “Malibu” singer and all her fans knew she was being presented with the Ultimate Choice Award way before the show aired, so when Victoria Justice announced that she wasn’t in attendance (and Jake Paul was her replacement), people were not happy.

But don’t worry, Smilers. The 24-year-old jumped on Instagram to apologize for missing the ceremony and explain why she couldn’t make it.

“To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox,” she wrote. “I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward! I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor!”

So, why exactly did she not appear at the TCAs even though that was her “intention?” She’s coming out with a brand-new single and music video for a song called “Younger Now” THIS WEEK!!!!

Miley continued, “I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I’ve been tryin to keep the secret but I can’t hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday, Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I’m thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!”
