Miley Cyrus Plays a Tormented Pop Star, A.I. Robot in New ‘Black Mirror’ Trailer
The hit series, which returns on June 5, will see the "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer playing a troubled pop star/robot this season. She'll star alongside actresses Angourie Rice and Madison Davenport in the show's second episode titled "Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too."
According to Netflix's official description, the ep is about "a lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favorite pop star—whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears..."
In the clip, we see Cyrus as a purple-haired performer named Ashey who voices a personal assistant robot called Ashley Too—similar to Amazon's Alexa. "It's really important to be who you want to be," she says while promoting the doll.
However, we soon find out that her life isn't all it's cracked up to be. Behind closed doors, the pop star struggles with mental health issues and her team talks about their plans to "up the dose" of what we can only assume is her medication.
