Miley Cyrus Rushed By Fan During Melbourne Concert (VIDEO)
Justin Bieber isn't the only teen star who is attracting attention for getting rushed by strangers – pop star Miley Cyrus got a big scare earlier this week when a female fan jumped on stage and attempted to touch the singer in the middle of a concert.
Miley – who was in the middle of performing her hit song, "The Climb," at a concert in Melbourne – attempted to wiggle away from the overzealous fan's grasp as a male security guard tackled the fan to the ground. The singer, who was clearly shaken, started yelling, "Oh my God," before running offstage with a security guard.
Ever the professional, Miley returned to the stage – after a quick costume change – to sing "See You Again" and talk about her "crazy" fan encounter.
"I've never been so thankful to have young fans who jumped from [the arena's balcony] onto my back," Miley told the screaming crowd. "This next song is for all my crazy fans out there that are awesome."
Watch Miley's reaction to getting rushed by a fan (around the 3:16 mark in the video) below.
The news of Miley's fan-attack comes less than 24 hours after her fellow tweener, Justin Bieber, was rushed by an undercover cop at a perfume event in New York City. Justin, thinking that the cop was a hater turned violent, began swinging his fists and had to be dragged away by his entourage. It later came out that the stranger was a cop who was trying to protect Bieber from a fan.
Thankfully, in both of these cases, neither star was seriously injured.
