There isn't much that can slow Miley Cyrus down. The singer has been on a mad tear round the globe promoting Bangerz, with memorable appearances on the 2013 MTV EMA Awards and last week's Bambi Awards.

But early Monday morning (November 18) she informed fans that doctors have forced her to take a break to save her voice." Vocal rest," she wrote in a post that included a series of emojis wearing surgical masks.

Considering how hectic her schedule has been lately, frankly, Cyrus was fine with it. "Happy to get some rest. Time to go be sicky" she told her 15.5 million followers on Sunday.

And though she's been forced to chill for a bit because of her vocal issues, that doesn't mean the promotional train comes to a halt. Over the weekend, Cyrus also posted her smiling cover shot from the December issue of "Cosmopolitan" magazine. The post included a quote from the story in which Cyrus proclaims, "It's almost punk rock to like me. Society wants to shut me down."

The rest comes after Miley seemed to struggle a bit while performing "Wrecking Ball" on the UK version of "X Factor" on Sunday night in London. Wearing a black bejeweled turban and a floor-length gold lame dress, Cyrus began the song sitting a giant hill of sand. She gave it her all, but it was clear that Cyrus was working extra hard to hit the song's booming chorus during the performance, her voice cracking near the end.
