Miley Cyrus has said that her upcoming 'Bangerz' world tour will be "educational for kids".

The 'Wrecking Ball' singer also told Fuse News that her gigs will see fans being exposed to art which they may have never heard about before. This comes just a day after the singer posted a picture from her tour rehearsal of herself riding a enlarged hot dog in the air.



She said: "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids. They're going to be exposed to art most people don't know about. People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted, where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art."

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 recent 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."

Each 'Bangerz' gig will run for at least 90 minutes with an added acoustic set that "can go on as long as I want".
