Fun.'s Nate Ruess Was Glassy-Eyed And Hungry After Hanging Backstage With Miley Cyrus

The singer had a pretty awesome weekend.

Nate Ruess may be solo now -- but he's still having plenty of fun (I know, I hate me, too). This past weekend, the singer took the stage with Beck at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony to pay homage to new inductee Lou Reed -- and, apparently, got a little high in more ways than one.

Not only did Ruess get to perform with Mr. Artistry himself -- the Reed jam "Satellite of Love" -- the "Nothing Without Love" singer also got to brush elbows with a few more legends.

"At the end of the night I got to sing with Paul [McCartney] and Ringo [Starr], which is my goal in life," Ruess told MTV News of the show's all-star finale. "I'm surprised that I showed up for work today, because I could have just died happy."

If he had, indeed, expired that evening, Ruess probably would have been a little bit more that "happy." When asked what it was like hanging backstage with Miley Cyrus (who inducted Joan Jett) and the rest, Ruess said, "Let's just say that at some point, while rehearsing up in the backstage area, I walked outside and my eyes were like completely glazed over and I found myself very, very hungry."
