I prefer when the publicists just say the young drug experimenting and partying performers are suffering from exhaustion or vocal chord fatigue or whatever other bullshit to explain why tours are being canceled and why the stars are mysteriously hold up in hospital wards. But I guess allergic reaction to an antibiotic is the new 'wants to spend more time with her family'. Journey taught us that the road ain't no place to raise a family, but it is an excellent place to chase down some happy pills with Jack and Cokes. Occasionally bands will cancel tours for non-drug related reasons. The dude from Kings of Leon canceled the tour a couple summers back because he just wanted to bang the shit out of his new Victoria's Secret wife. Van Halen's reunion concert got shut down when the crotchety old dudes just couldn't stand to fucking look at each other sober. But, by and large, it's recreational substances. Though that was refuted by Miley's publicists:
Miley was suffering from a sinus infection during her tour in N.C. a week ago. She was prescribed the antibiotic Cephalexin which she has now suffered an extreme allergic reaction to. This type of extreme reaction can last from five to 27 days in these types of cases. She will remain hospitalized and is under a doctor's care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time. Miley is devastated about missing shows and possibly disappointing her fans.That certainly seems official. Despite first hand accounts of Miley's massive weed smoking, it's hard to argue with publicist penned science. I can certainly give her my compassion at this time. Privacy is another matter. I'd like to retain that for myself. I do hope Miley gets better. I bet her drug connect does too.
