Miley Cyrus’ “Younger” era didn’t bring the success the singer thought it would, so she is once again channeling her “bad bitch” persona. On Tuesday night, the singer got herself together during Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing” tribute concert at Madison Square Garden with a photo shoot inspired by the legendary singer.

Miley Cyrus couldn’t get her new music featured at the 2018 Grammys, but she’s found a way to make it on stage at the awards show all the same. It was already announced that Miley was joining an Elton John tribute similar to the one Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and DNCE did for the Bee Gees last year. The latest news is that Miley will be on stage with Elton himself at the awards show as part of a different tribute.
There is finally an answer to what Miley Cyrus was doing in the studio covering Elton John. On Friday, the Recording Academy announced that Miley will honor the legacy of Elton John with an all-star tribute. It’s likely a consolation prize for being snubbed for the 2018 GRAMMY Awards.
Lady Gaga helped ring in Elton John’s 70th birthday over the weekend by serenading the music legend with a set featuring songs like “Bad Romance” and “Born This Way.” She was then joined on stage by Stevie Wonder, who took over piano duties, for a duet of Stevie’s version of “Happy Birthday.”
Gaga and Elton have been friends for many years with their relationship going as far as Gaga being the Godmother to Elton’s sons. The two recently launched a joint clothing line to benefit their respective foundations.

Fresh off the plane from Paris where she performed at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Lady Gaga arrived in London to attend Elton John’s Worlds AIDS Day dinner Thursday night. She showed up to the Elton John Aids Foundation event with friend and fellow activist Will.i.am before eventually taking off for yet another commitment. Lady Gaga scheduled an intimate concert at Westfield Shopping Centre in Sheperd’s Bush. She performed an acoustic set from inside a snowglobe on the rooftop. The singer later returned to her hotel where she was greeted by flower-baring fans.

Along with being Mother Monster, Lady Gaga is the godmother to Elton John and husband David Furnish’s sons. Lady Gaga’s close relationship with Elton led to a joint effort between her Born This Way Foundation and his Elton John AIDS Foundation. The musicians came together to create a clothing line called “Love Bravery” that benefits their charitable missions, and it launched last night at Macy’s in New York City.
