Noah Cyrus has admitted that being Miley’s little sister ‘stripped her of her own identity’ when she was younger. The singer, 20, also spoke about her body dysmorphia battle after being trolled for her appearance while growing up.
Noah candidly discussed ageing in the public eye and her new EP The End of Everything with Rebecca Judd on Apple Music on Tuesday. She said: “I think when you listen to songs like Young and Sad, you get the full story of my life. And I obviously I can’t go down to every single situation in one song.“
“But I speak about my body dysmorphia and I speak about my struggles growing up as the world saw it as “Miley Cyrus’ little sister.” No one would choose to be called somebody else’s little sister and used this.
alking about how that title ‘stripped her of her own identity’, Noah continued: “It wouldn’t be a question, it’d be a statement when they came up to me. 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. And that’s what it felt like. Because it felt like no one gives a… about me, myself.”
Noah went on to reveal that she was trolled for her appearance growing up and she was ‘so sad’ that people had such ‘terrible things’ to say.
She continued: “They were already so terrible to me on the Internet about the way I looked and the way that I grew up. And that was just the way that my face that God gave me.”
