Party in the U.S.A. Chile

Pictures from the Miley Cyrus concert in LA in September 2009
(the first picture is before the concert and the second is right after haha)

When I bought tickets to the MC concert in 2009, I thought I was just buying tickets to see one of 
my favorite teeny boppers bounce around on stage. I didn't realize she was literally going to blow
 me away with her vocal performance. If you are one of the many people that think MC is a 
talentless Disney product, go see her in concert and then tell me what you think of her. 

After the concert, I told myself that if I ever got the chance to see her sing live again, I 
had to go!! When I found out she was doing a tour in the southern hemisphere, I was so excited that I 
almost tricked my friends (non-fans) into going to her concert with me in Peru hahaha.  Luckily (for my 
friends) Miley set a date to perform in Santiago too, so I did not need to resort to desperate measures. 


The line outside of the Estadio Nacional in Santiago was ridiculous. 
I was glad when my friend Mel arrived because I was no longer the only person
 over age 9 (excluding parents). She bought us some souvenirs! 


We were allowed to enter the stadium two hours before showtime so there was a lot of time to kill



At one point, we heard a commotion behind us, so we turned to see what was going on. 
We saw a small crowd forming and people screaming "MILLEYYYY" in Chilean accents.
Then we ran.

As it turns out, it was not actually Miley hahaha. This girl did look freakishly like her, though.
Despite the fact that it wasn't her, people continued to mob her, stare at her, and take pictures.
I'm pretty sure she eventually started crying and was escorted to another section by security. 


A popular Chilean artist opened for Miley. He went onstage an hour before the
 show was supposed to start and his set only lasted like 15 minutes hahah. Awkward... 
We had no idea who he was but we still managed to have fun while he sang!




My outfit didn't match Miley's like it did the last time I went... It just so happens that my leather 
hotshorts and red leotard were in the laundry, so that was kind of a bummer. But she was great
 and I am sooo glad we went!  And I am SOOO glad I had a friend that wanted to come with me.
 Hopefully she still wants to be my friend -- I kind of sang in her ear the entire time. And if
 you have heard me sing before, you know that "sing" is more of a relative term hahaha. 


P.P.S. That is my new tattoo
P.P.P.S. Just kidding. Kind of...

Oh man I can totally picture you going crazy over every little teeny bopper girl at the concert (as exhibited by the pics you posted of random little girls here) like u act when you're at Disneyland.

So the girl in the audience started "crying" and had to be escorted away. HELLO!! She was obviously escorted away to the stage so she could perform because it really was Miley Cyrus!

And yeah I don't know if I'd hold my breath too long for your friend wanting to go to another concert with you anytime soon due to your..."singing situation" haha.

P.S. You look cute in that outfit.

P.P.S. You loook semi-drunk in the second to last picture.

P.P.P.S. You should totally get that tatoo as a black light tatoo so you can hide it by day but show it off when you're gettin yo party on at night :)
