Noah Cyrus Says Being Miley Cyrus's Younger Sister Stripped Her Of Her Identity

Noah Cyrus is getting more candid about how she felt growing up as Miley Cyrus‘s younger sister in the industry.

The -year-old singer spoke with Apple Music while promoting her new music, and mentioned just how Miley‘s fans and press surrounding her older sister would only ask her about Miley, instead of herself.

“It wouldn’t be a question, it’d be a statement when they came up to me,” she recalled. “Hannah Montana came out in 2006 or 2007. So that up until I made my own name, which was the reasoning why…and it really stripped me of my identity as a little kid.”

“That’s what it felt like. Because it felt like no one gives a…about me, myself,” Noah adds.

Noah continued on, “No one would choose to be called somebody else’s little sister and I used this…So it’s like when you’re seeing somebody and you’re like, ‘Oh, you’re so and so’s brother, right?’ But you know who they are. You’ve been talking to them already.”

“There’s a difference. It’s not, ‘I know you, but aren’t you also so and so’s little brother?” It would be, ‘You’re Miley Cyrus’ little sister. You’re Hannah Montana’s little sister.’

Over the weekend, Noah opened up about the lyrics to one of her new songs, and elaborated about why is was unbearable growing up in Miley‘s shadow.
