Miley Cyrus had a complaint as a visitor to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” yesterday: The studio was way too cold. “I’m catching pneumonia in your studio right now,” she told Jimmy.

“It’s very cold,” Fallon acknowledged, “but you have to wear clothes.”

Indeed, Miley made her “Late Night” appearance in approximately 1/3 of a tuxedo. This did not include the bottom third, obvs. Mainly, she just wore a billowy white shirt, with a bra-ish cummerbund-ish thingy.

“Saturday Night Live” vet Fallon also praised Miley’s hosting gig this weekend, and Miley credited Hannah Montana with prepping her to handle live TV.

“My show was a little bit like SNL in that we never knew what was going to be thrown at us,” she said. “So I thought it was a good opportunity to show people that I don’t just twerk and lick stuff. I can sing and I can act a little bit.”

They never knew what was going to be thrown at them? Why not? Did they just throw stuff at the actors without putting it in the script? Actually, that totally sounds like something those Disney Channel shows would do.

She and the Roots also did an a capella cover of “We Can’t Stop.” Check it out below. Not as awesome as their kids’ toys covers, but still good.
