WATCH: Pint-Sized Fan Bum-Rushes Miley Cyrus on Stage

A diminutive female fan almost knocks Miley over while trying to give her a surprise hug at a concert in Australia

It's a weird week to be a teenage pop star. On Thursday, Justin Bieber got tackled by an undercover cop at Macy's in New York City. And on Friday, Miley Cyrus was bum-rushed from behind by a diminutive fan while performing her power ballad "The Climb" at a concert in Melbourne, Australia.

Both singers are perfectly okay, though both were a bit spooked by the incidents. In Miley's case, it looked like the little whippersnapper just wanted to give her a hug. A very creepy hug from behind -- but a hug nonetheless. A security guard reacted quickly, nearly knocking Miley off the stage while extricating the singer from the mini-fan's embrace. As the guard (surprisingly gently) placed the girl back in the audience, Miley could be heard gasping, "Oh my God," twice into the microphone. The guard then took Miley by the arm, and together they ran off the back of the stage. Now that's what you call a performance!
