Miley Cyrus is rethinking the way she performs following the tragic terror attack on Ariana Grande's Manchester concert, which claimed the lives of 22 people on Monday (May 22) and injured countless others.

The pop star opened up about how the horrifying incident has affected her while appearing on The Today Show on Friday (May 26) for a performance.

"I'm someone that, I don't like a lot of people around. I don't usually have the team and crew around me," Cyrus, who dedicated her performance on The Voice to Grande and the victims earlier in the week, explained.

"I like to lay really low-key. So, now I realize that I need to know that I'm around a lot of people and to protect myself and protect everyone that's here," she shared. "I take that more seriously. It's really been an eye-opener."

As for "her friend Ariana," Cyrus just wishes she could embrace her fellow pop star as soon as possible.

"It's just beyond me," she said, somberly. "I can't wait until I get a second and I can give her a big hug."

In 2015, Cyrus and Grande collaborated as part of the Bangerz star's acoustic "Happy Hippie Presents" series, singing a duet of Crowded Houses' lush "Don't Dream It's Over." Watch below:
