Miley Cyrus brought the flowers and the tears as she returned to host NBC’s SNL on Saturday for the show’s season 41 premiere.
The 22-year-old pop star got emotional while performing her new ballad, “The Twinkle Song” on a piano covered in similar material with her long, blond wig adorned with blossoms , and a framed heart-shaped photograph of her deceased dog, Floyd, placed on top.
The song is from her new, free album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz and contains lyrics such as “And I had a dream / I was being chased by a monster/ Maybe they were aliens . But I wasn’t scared ’cause you were there / And I had a dream / You took karate / That’s when you said you loved me / You loved me / What does it mean? /What does it all mean?”
She also donned a thick, ankle-length wig and wore only floral vines as she performed her track “Karen Don’t Be Sad.”
