Twerking on top of a car in a cannabis-covered leotard with dollar sign cowboy boots? Just another day for Miley Cyrus.

The former “Hannah Montana” star is speaking out, defending her Bangerz tour, which has sparked a slew of complaints since kicking off just a week ago.

During the gigs, the former Disney star simulates oral sex with a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask, gropes a backing dancer’s butt, and parades around the stage in a leotard sporting a cannabis leaf design.

The singer’s management team has reportedly been inundated with complaints from angry parents amid rumors some venue bosses are threatening to pull the concerts.

Miley has created a tour that’s big, spectacular, entertaining and everything you would expect from Miley Cyrus. Reviews have been amazing and most important, fans are loving the show and having a great time.”

Cyrus also addressed the allegations herself on her blog, making light of the claims by writing, “You can’t say I didn’t warn you. Now sit back relax & enjoy the show. #bangerztour…
