How Tom Brady and Tampa Bay reached Super Bowl 55
SportsPulse: Tom Brady made the right call. By leaving New England and joining Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay he was able to get the Buccaneers to their first Super Bowl in 18 years.
Miley Cyrus is headed to the Super Bowl.
The NFL tweeted Sunday that Cyrus, 28, will be at Super Bowl LV to perform at the first-ever “TikTok Tailgate” – the pregame event for the 7,500 vaccinated health care heroes who have been invited to attend at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
“I’ll be there for TIKTOK TAILGATE!!!” Cyrus tweeted.
Earlier this week, the NFL announced that the championship game will allow 22,000 people into the stadium, including free admission for health care workers, the majority of whom will hail from hospitals or health care systems in the Tampa or central Florida area.
Additionally, all 32 NFL teams will select vaccinated health care workers from their home communities to attend the game.
It will be a welcome view of Cyrus, who helped welcome 2021 with two performances as part of the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.”
Cyrus gave an emotional interview to Rolling Stone in December in which she revealed that she went down a dark path in 2018 while engaged to future husband Liam Hemsworth.
“A couple of years ago, it looked like I was living some fairy tale. It really wasn’t,” the “Plastic Hearts” artist said. “At that time, my experimentation with drugs and booze and the circle of people around me was not fulfilling or sustainable or ever going to get me to my fullest potential and purpose.”
“‘She’s got a man. She’s living in a house playing wife,'” Cyrus said. “Dude, I was way more off my path at that time than any of the times before where my sanity was being questioned.”
The “Black Mirror” actress, who split with Hemsworth in 2019, less than a year into their marriage, said that for now she’s focused on being 100% sober. She hasn’t learned how to “not take it too far” or be “balanced.”
The “TikTok Tailgate” will kick off Sunday at 2:30 PM EST on CBS.
