Miley Cyrus Reveals a 'What Was I Thinking' Moment From Her Career, Admits She's Now Sober

Miley Cyrus did an interview on Variety‘s “The Big Ticket” podcast and she opened up about several topics.

One question she was asked was, “Do you ever look back at some of the things you’ve done and say, ‘What was I thinking?’”

Miley responded, “One of my favorite interviews is when I say, ‘Anyone that smokes weed is a dummy.’ That one I love to send to my parents, who are big stoners, every now and then. It’s been really important for me over the last year living a sober lifestyle, because I really wanted to polish up my craft. I had really big vocal surgery in November. I had freaking four weeks where I wasn’t allowed to talk. I was so ripped writing on the whiteboard, yelling at everybody [Laughs]. I had this one big bicep from just yelling at mom and still trying to do meetings. But it prepared me for the stillness and the quietness.”

Miley then opened up about being sober, saying, “I’ve been sober sober for the past six months. At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery. … But I had been thinking a lot about my mother. My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable. My dad’s parents divorced when he was 3, so my dad raised himself. I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges. 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. I think therapy is great.”

Miley has been open about her relationship with marijuana in the past. In 2017, she revealed that she actually quit smoking marijuana.

Then, a year later, she actually started smoking weed occasionally again (find out why if you missed it.)
