Noah Cyrus is fully unclothed on Instagram – to bring attention to someone else. The 20-year-old singer and sister to superstar Miley Cyrus updated her account on Thursday with artwork for her cover of 2018-deceased rapper Mac Miller‘s music. The ex to Ariana Grande died tragically on September 7 the year before last following an accidental drug overdose.
Noah’s post last night was a haunting, raw, and emotional take on tasteful nudity. It also came with the “July” singer making a donation to a foundation built in Mac Miller’s name. Scroll for the video.
Noah’s cover of Miller’s “DUNNO” comes as the star delivers her own rendition from the rapper’s fifth studio album “Swimming.” The video showed Noah with her arms folded up by her eyes as she posed topless and against a white background with gray shadows. The “IN MY FEELS” podcast host shot the camera a piercing gaze, then took to her caption to honor Miller, who passed age 26.
“Mac you were such a kind soul and you touched and inspired people across the world. me being one of them,” Noah began.
Miller, whose loss continues to be mourned both by fans and the rapper’s 27-year-old ex Ariana, was referred to in an angelic manner by Cyrus as she continued:
“Your legacy lives on and we all know you and all the other angels that were taken too soon are watching over us.”
Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City, California home last year, with his P.A. calling 911 and performing CPR until the paramedics arrived. He was pronounced dead at 11.51 a.m., still at the scene. More after the video.
Noah is also opening up her pockets. “In honor of Mac I’m also making a donation to The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Mac Miller Fund to help raise awareness for youth programming in underserved communities specifically as it relates to arts and community building,” she wrote.
The update has racked up over 300,000 likes. Fans, who have slammed Noah in the past for scantily-clad content, warmed to the update – “I LOVE IT. thank u sm for doing this tribute? we miss him sm,” one user wrote. More below.
Noah has been making headlines amid the global pandemic. Largely, for releasing her “The End of Everything EP” album and having 27-year-old sister Miley dance to it in her “quarantini bikini.” Noah, who rawly documents her mental health troubles both via her music and her social media, has also launched a new podcast.
“IN MY FEELS” discusses mental health openly – Noah herself has admitted to struggling with depression and anxiety. The singer called last year “Hell on Earth” in her last social media update of 2019.
