Miley Cyrus Denies Drug Overdose Put Her In The Hospital

With Miley Cyrus about to restart her Bangerz tour on May 6, she's speaking out against rumors that it was a drug overdose that put her in the hospital, forcing her to cancel several shows.

"I'm the poster child for good health," the 21-year-old said at a press conference at the O2 arena in London on Tuesday. "You have no idea how ready I am. There is nothing I would rather not do than lay in a bed for two weeks. It was the most miserable two weeks of my life."

Cyrus has repeatedly vocalized how "devastated" she was to cancel shows, and took the opportunity to clear the air amid rumors as to what really sent her to the hospital on April 15.

"I didn't have a drug overdose. I took some shitty antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection and I had a reaction," Cyrus told the press.

The "We Can't Stop" singer said she's now feeling "better than ever," and that the experience taught her a lot about taking care of herself.

"I'm probably the only one on this tour who doesn't drink or smoke before a show, as I take this really seriously," Cyrus said. "It's almost like being an athlete being up here, because if someone was f--ked up, they definitely couldn't do my show."

Cyrus previously opened up about her hospitalization telling Ryan Seacrest, "It was so scary … I had basically been poisoning myself with something I didn’t know I was really scary allergic to. I was on this medicine for five days and everything was all good and on the sixth day, I just woke up … I couldn't breath and my skin -- everything -- was going insane."
