Miley Cyrus has revealed she “fell off” her sobriety during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but is happy to announce she is now two weeks sober after relapsing.
The Midnight Sky singer opened up about her struggles with sobriety during an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily.
“Well, I, like a lot of people, being completely honest, during the pandemic fell off and felt really a lot of … and I would never sit here and go, ‘I’ve been f—ing sober.” I didn’t, and 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,” People report Cyrus as sharing.
“I’m very disciplined,” Cyrus, who turned 28 on Monday, shared. “Yeah, very disciplined. That’s why it’s never easy, but it’s pretty easy for me to be sober or in and out of sobriety because it’s like the day I don’t want to f—ing do it anymore, I don’t. The day that I do, I do. You know? But when I don’t want to it just is. I’m just very disciplined.”
“Twenty-seven to me was a year that I really had to protect myself. That actually really made me want to get sober was because we’ve lost so many icons at 27,” Cyrus told Lowe, referring to music icons such as Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and Amy Winehouse who all died at the age of 27 after struggling with addiction. “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.”
Cyrus, who announced she had been six months sober in June, has always been open about her struggles with drugs and alcohol, tweeting in August 2019, “It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom.”
