Dealing with COVID-19 and 2020, in general, has been hard on a lot of us – and celebrities are no exception…
Miley Cyrus confessed that she too struggled with the Coronavirus pandemic this year, so much so that she admitted to relapsing during the quarantine.
However, the 28-year-old singer didn’t want to end the year on a bad note, and proudly admitted that she is now celebrating two whole weeks of sobriety…
“Well, I, like a lot of people, being completely honest, during the pandemic fell off … and I would never sit here and go, ‘I’ve been f–king sober,’ and I didn’t,” the Midnight Sky singer said in a very candid interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily.
“I fell off, and I realised that I now am back on sobriety, two weeks sober, and I feel like I really accepted that time.
“One of the things I’ve used is, ‘Don’t get furious, get curious.’ So don’t be mad at yourself, but ask yourself, ‘What happened?’”
We like her way of thinking!
She admitted that she doesn’t actually “have a problem with drinking”, but found that it was the choices she made while doing so that were the main issue…
“I think everyone has to do what is best for them. I don’t have a problem with drinking. I have a problem with the decisions I make once I go past that level,” she continued, before adding that she is very disciplined, and wants to take her sobriety very seriously.
“I’m very disciplined. Yeah, very disciplined. That’s why it’s never easy, but it’s pretty easy for me to be sober or in and out of sobriety because it’s like the day I don’t want to f****** do it anymore, I don’t,” she said.
“The day that I do, I do. You know? But when I don’t want to it just is. I’m just very disciplined.”
Miley Cyprus celebrated her 28th birthday earlier this week, and spoke about how important staying sober at 27 was to her… as the likes of Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin all struggled with addiction and tragically died as a result of it when they were 27…
“27 to me was a year that I really had to protect myself. That actually really made me want to get sober was because we’ve lost so many icons at 27,” she confessed.
“It’s a very pivotal time. You go into that next chapter or this is it for you. I just feel that some of the artists that almost couldn’t handle their own power and their own energy and their own force.
“It’s an energy. I, no matter what, was born with that.”
We’re thankful that she has spoken to us openly about her struggles, and are very proud of her two-week milestone!
