Miley Cyrus Talks about Sobriety, Admits That She “Fell Off” during Pandemic

Miley Cyrus says she has been ‘sober for two weeks’

‘Hannah Montana’ star Miley Cyrus spoke on the “New Music Daily” radio show hosted by Zane Lowe for Apple Music for the November 23 episode, opening up about how she handled her sobriety during the pandemic and her new music. Coincidentally, Miley’s birthday too happens to fall on November 23rd.

Talking to Zane Lowe, Miley said “I am not the person I was yesterday. Last night sitting behind you, cutting with Stevie Nicks on the phone, that changed me forever, everything changes me forever and I’ll never be who I was yesterday”.

Explaining further, Miley said “In a way, every night before I go to sleep, I say goodbye to myself in a way, because it’s like that person’s done. There’s like a sadness to it sometimes because I do evolve really quickly because I’m very absorbent. Like I just take everything in.”

Miley also revealed that she is two weeks sober after having “fallen off” from being sober during the pandemic, 5 months ago in June, Miley had revealed that she was six months sober.

“I fell off and I realized that I now am back on sobriety, two weeks sober, and I feel like I really accepted that time,” Miley told Zane Lowe “One of the things I’ve used is, ‘Don’t get furious, get curious.’ So don’t be mad at yourself, but ask yourself, ‘What happened?”

Continuing the conversation, Miley said that “she is not a moderation person”, explaining that her issue is not with her consuming alcohol in large amounts, but the result of her actions under the influence of alcohol.

“I don’t have a problem with drinking,” she continued. “I have a problem with the decisions I make once I go pass that level … I’ve just been wanting to wake up 100%, 100% of the time.” Miley further added to the conversation.

Miley later told Zane why she wanted to get sober at the age of 27, fearing that she end up joining the notorious “27 Club”, the same age when Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin passed away after struggling with their addiction to substance abuse.

“Twenty-seven to me was a year that I really had to protect myself,” Miley said. “That actually really made me want to get sober was because we’ve lost so many icons at 27. It’s a very pivotal time. You go into that next chapter or this is it for you. I just feel that some of the artists that almost couldn’t handle their own power and their own energy and their own force. It’s an energy. I, no matter what, was born with that.”

Miley Cyrus has a new and upcoming studio set for release on the 27th of November, which is coming Friday.
