Miley Cyrus Says She Was Experimenting With Drugs & Alcohol During 'Younger Now' Era

Miley Cyrus is on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, out now.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Plastic Hearts singer had to say…

On always discrediting past versions of herself: “I discredited myself for what I had been almost every step of the way. During Dead Petz, discrediting Bangerz. During Bangerz, discrediting Hannah Montana. During “Malibu,” discrediting Bangerz. It’s almost like when I have evolved, I’ve then become shameful of who I was before. What makes you an adult, I think, is being OK with who you’ve been before.”

On experimenting with drugs and alcohol during Younger Now era: “A couple of years ago, it looked like I was living some fairy tale. It really wasn’t. At that time, my experimentation with drugs and booze and the circle of people around me was not fulfilling or sustainable or ever going to get me to my fullest potential and purpose…there’s an idea that during the Younger Now era, I was pure. The media likes to have my hair or what I look like be the point of reference for my sanity. ‘Hair’s long and blond, she’s sane right now. She cannot be f–ked up on drugs. It’s when her hair is painted or she’s growing out her armpit hair [that] she’s on drugs.’”

On how she wants to be remembered: “I have no idea how the f–k I’d want to be remembered. I’m a pretty wicked daughter. I think I’m f–king very dedicated to my family. I feel like I’ve fought for what I really wanted, whether that’s fighting for rights, or against injustices, working with Happy Hippie Foundation. I’d want that to be a priority. I’d want to have been a trailblazer, but I think it’s really hard talking about it because I’m still so here with so much left to do. I couldn’t really tell you how I’d want to be remembered because all the things that I’d hopefully be remembered for haven’t happened yet.”

She also confirmed this song’s lyrics are about ex, Liam Hemsworth.
