Miley Cyrus is a wanted young woman.
Sarah McLachlan tells me she was hoping Cyrus would sign on for an appearance during the upcoming relaunch of the Lilith Fair summer music tour…
"She was big on my list," McLachlan told me earlier today at L.A.'s Sunset Marquis hotel, where she was promoting her upcoming new album, The Laws of Illusion. "I actually think she's really talented and my daughter [India] loves her. It's all about Miley."
Unfortunately, Cyrus politely declined because of her already-packed schedule.
Not that Lilith won't be chock-full of enough musical choices to satisfy just about anyone. Among the more than 80 acts performing on the 36-city tour, which benefits local and national women's advocacy groups, are Rihanna, Ke$ha, Selena Gomez, country stars Sugarland and Miranda Lambert, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Clarkson and Heart.
Lady Gaga is also a favorite in the McLachlan household. "I feel she's a little inappropriate for an 8-year-old, but I lost the battle on that one," McLachlan said. "But she doesn't get most of it anyway, so I trust she just likes the beat."
(That's not all the Sarah McLachlan I have for you. Make sure to come back here when her new album drops on June 15.)
