Cyrus bus burns on way to N.O.; she surprises Cat's Meow crowd

A tour bus for pop princess Miley Cyrus burst into flames overnight en route to New Orleans for a Tuesday night show at the Smoothie King Center, but no one was hurt, according to Twitter posts from the singer’s sister. The performer also showed up at Cat’s Meow on Bourbon Street late Monday and jumped onstage for a spontaneous karaoke performance of “Baby Got Back,” by Sir Mix A Lot, according to YouTube videos posted by people in the bar.

Cyrus’ bus was headed from Houston, where Cyrus performed Sunday night as part of her Bangerz tour, when flames engulfed it early Tuesday morning. It was not immediately clear where the bus was when the fire began.

“Yes, everyone got out safe no one is injured what so ever!! everything is okay!!” Noah Lindsey Cyrus tweeted.

A spokesman for SMG, which manages the Smoothie King Center, said Cyrus’ 7 p.m. show was set to begin as scheduled.
