Miley Cyrus reveals why sobriety is ‘so important’ in allowing her to tell her ‘own story’

The singer has been living a 'sober lifestyle' since November


Miley Cyrus has opened up about her sobriety, explaining why it was “so important” to her in order to be able to tell her “own story.”

The 27-year-old spoke with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily, where she opened up about her decision to go sober at this stage of her life.

“I think I’m really delicate and thoughtful about the way that I talk about sobriety, because I think that it was something that was so important for me during this time, and I never like to become the end-all, be-all or the face of a decision,” she said.

“That was something I did when I was a lot younger, too, where it was like, ‘This is how I’m living my life, and anyone that lives outside of this way, I am totally just supportive of anybody’s lifestyle choices,’ ” she continued.

“I think everyone has to figure out what they need for themselves in each season because it changes.”

The singer said she “just wanted to be clear to tell my own story,” and that she “needed to recall correctly.”

“I needed to go through the moments in my life and really own what is mine and throw away what’s not, because a lot of the time, I feel like we kind of collect these ideas of ourselves and how it went and how it ended.”


Speaking to Variety earlier this year, Miley admitted she has been living a “sober lifestyle” ever since she underwent surgery in November.

“I’ve been sober sober for the past six months. At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery… I had really big vocal surgery in November.”


“It’s been really important for me over the last year living a sober lifestyle, because I really wanted to polish up my craft,” she explained.


The Wrecking Ball singer said that after looking into her family history, she decided to stick with the sobriety.

“I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges,” she continued.


“So just going through that and asking, ‘Why am I the way that I am?’ By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly.”

The former Disney star also opened up about the stigma surrounding young people and sobriety.

“It’s really hard because especially being young, there’s that stigma of ‘you’re no fun.’ It’s like, ‘honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun.’”

“The thing that I love about it is waking up 100%, 100% of the time,” she added, “I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.”
