Miley Cyrus is known for her capacity to totally reinvent herself. When she wanted to shake her cutesie Disney image, she cut off all of her hair and created a whole new twerking party persona. She went onto release a series of saucy pop anthems only to retreat back into her country-loving self four years later.

Recently, Cyrus made her comeback with a record which embraces both her pop obsession and country rock roots. A couple of months later, she made her debut appearance as Ashley O on Charlie Brooker’s dystopian sci-fi series Black Mirror. And since then, her Instagram has been more purple-wigged Ashley O than it has Miley.

At Glastonbury, however, the pop sensation stepped out in a pair of PVC trousers looking like a rock ‘n’ roll diva. She played her biggest pop hits only her voice was growlier and she sounded like a badass.

At one point in her set, Miley had a quick costume change and came out wearing a sparkly hoodie and her purple Ashley O wig. Taking on the role of her new alter ego, she sang “On A Roll” and “Head Like A Hole.”

Overall, Miley’s performance on the night was fantastic and embraced all the different sides of the pop star. It finally seems that Cyrus has found out a way to bring all her changing phases together in one and it makes for a killer live show.
