Miley Cyrus has grown up in the spotlight with people watching her every move. Now, she's coming clean about her own path to sobriety.


Cyrus has been a consistent advocate for recreational drug use over the past years. However, due to the singer's vocal chord surgery back in November, which required her to be completely sober, Miley is now living a sober lifestyle. In an interview with Variety, she shared her reasoning of going completely sober:

"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. I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges."

Cyrus had also shared the postive experience she has had with therapy and the importance of understanding the past. Although, she still has trouble dealing with the stigma around her sobriety:

"It's really hard because especially being so 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."

In addition to the surgery, Cyrus had recently called it quits with Liam Hemsworth and wanted to focus on perfecting her music and upcoming projects:

"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 don't want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready."

This major lifestyle change had fans on twitter congratulating Cyrus on her success:
