Miley Cyrus must have had her fans worried after her announcement of vocal surgery. However, in her latest upload, the singer revealed she has been “sober sober” in preparation for the surgery.
However, the 27-year-old singer also shared her decision to maintain it even after the operation due to he family’s health issues as “history of addiction and mental health challenges”.
In an interview with Variety and iHeart’s podcast The Big Ticket, she explained: “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.”
The Wrecking Ball singer added: “My dad’s parents divorced when he was three, 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.”
In answer to the question of whether she has ever looked back and laughed at things she’s done in the past, Miley explained: “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.
She then continued: “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.”
“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 percent, 100 percent of the time. I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.” – Miley concluded.
