Miley Cyrus is turning her upcoming tour into a larger than life episode of “The Ren & Stimpy Show.”

The singer is set to kick off her Bangerz world tour next month and she has now revealed the production design is inspired by the work of John K, creator of the animated TV series.

Cyrus reveals she has been talking to the artist about her ideas, and “his art is driving a lot of the tour”, adding, “Our whole tour is literally based on animals!… imaginative animals he’s made on his own.”

Speaking during a press conference on Wednesday, she also declared she will be giving away plenty of free merchandise to fans during the shows: “I’m a little bit of a hoarder, so I hope my fans become hoarders. I want to give them real things to collect. I’ll have things falling out of the sky that most people would sell at the merch table. This is my mom’s worst nightmare, because I always hoard things from when I go to concerts… all the kids always want to keep the confetti, but I want to give them real things to collect.”

The tour kicks off in Vancouver, Canada Valentine’s Day, Feb 14.
