Miley Cyrus followed in the footsteps of her Hannah Montana alter-ego, by putting on a wig to disguise her true identity when out in public.
But the teen pop star failed to try out her new look because her wig caught fire, she has revealed.
Talking to British chat show This Morning, Miley told presenters: "I had the idea [for the disguise] so I got a wig and it was really short - a tomboy cut - and I decided to straighten it. I'm sitting down and all of a sudden I start smelling smoke. I thought, 'What is that?'"
"The wig is literally catching on fire because I didn't know it was a cheap wig," Cyrus added. "And I thought, 'This isn't going to work for me.' So it doesn't work in real life but it works on the show!"
