Miley Cyrus Covers Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness'

Miley Cyrus showed off her vocal chops with a live performance of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" on Tuesday.

Cyrus wore a black turtleneck and trousers for the cover of Del Rey's hit, which was performed at the BBC Radio 1 lounge in London. She took the dance tune in an acoustic direction, joined by two female backup singers and a pared-down band.

Cyrus tweeted after the performance: "Check out my @BBCR1 live lounge cover of Summertime Sadness."

The "Wrecking Ball" singer continued to court controversy last week when she lit a joint on live television as she accepted a Best Video award at the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam.

She was characteristically unrepentant in the face of criticism, tweeting: "Sometimes in life you just gotta decide to not give A F."
