Miley Cyrus revealed she will no longer be playing live shows in stadiums and arenas during a recent interview with British Vogue.

Cyrus has officially called it quits on performing in large spaces, after admitting that those types of shows left her feeling unsatisfied. Cyrus said she hasn’t taken the stage in a large arena since her 2015 tour. “It’s been a minute,” Cyrus said to British Vogue. “After the last [arena] show I did, I kind of looked at it as more of a question,” she said. “There’s no connection. There’s no safety. It’s also not natural,” Cyrus added.

The singer discussed the lack of connectivity she feels in large spaces that attract significant crowds. “It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,000 people then you are alone,” she said.

“Like singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love,” she told British Vogue.

Cyrus expressed her feelings about how she wants to direct her time and energy.

“And I can’t. Not only ‘can’t’, because can’t is your capability, but my desire,” she said.

“Do I want to live my life for anyone else’s pleasure or fulfillment other than my own?” (RELATED: ‘The Biggest Tour She’s Ever Done’: Madonna To Set World On Fire With Slate Of Wild Shows, Sources Say)

The famous singer’s last big tour was her 2015 Bangerz Tour which included 78 shows in large venues such as London’ 20,000 seat Arena and the Barclays Center in New York City, which seats approximately 19,000 fans, according to ET Canada.
