Miley Cyrus is planning to give fans free merchandise on her forthcoming 'Bangerz' tour, adding that she wants to drop items on the heads of the audience.

Speaking at a press conference, she said: "I want to give my fans real things they can collect. I'm a little bit of a hoarder. It's my mom's worst nightmare. I hope my fans become hoarders also. I'm giving a lot of junk away... I'll have things falling out of the sky that most people would sell at the merch table."

She added she's not driven by profit, and is more focused on her fans' enjoyment. She said: "My thing has never been about me making money. "I did that when I was a kid. I made the money I needed to make and now it's about putting money into the tour and making sure my fans get the best show, making it worth going to see."

Each 'Bangerz' gig will run for at least 90 minutes with an added acoustic set that "can go on as long as I want". Cyrus also says there will be "lots of animal costumes and crazy props", with her main inspiration being the work of John K, creator of 'Ren & Stimpy', whose cartoons are "driving a lot of the tour". The 21-year-old will also be wearing costumes designed by Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott and Bob Mackie.

"Everything that I do, it's not to be different to prove a point," Cyrus added. "It's just being truly who you are, and what makes you feel good and feel right." Miley Cyrus's 38-city Bangerz tour kicks off in Vancouver on February 14, reaching London's O2 Arena on May 6, before playing Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and Belfast.
