Miley Cyrus has fired back at ongoing reports her April health crisis was sparked by a drug overdose at a press conference in London, where she resumed up her Bangerz world tour on Tuesday night.

The pop star had to scrap a series of U.S. dates last month when she was hospitalized following a severe allergic reaction to medication she was prescribed for a sinus infection.

And her plans to start the European leg of the tour in Holland last week suffered a setback when doctors refused to give her permission to travel.

The tour got back on track in London on Tuesday and at a media event before the show, Miley boasted she was “the poster child for good health” before addressing one reporter’s question about the overdose reports.

She snapped, “I’m feeling good, I’m alive, so that’s (expletive) awesome… I’ve been laying down for three weeks. I’m gonna go off – I’m like a star waiting to explode.

“I didn’t have a drug overdose. I took some (expletive) antibiotic my doctor gave me and I had an allergic reaction. I already had a death in my family so my immune system was already low.”

The “Wrecking Ball” star pulled out of a scheduled gig in North Carolina on April 7, after admitting she was struggling with the death of her beloved dog Floyd the week before.
