Miley Cyrus admits she 'fell off' during pandemic but says her 'discipline' allows her to go 'in and out of sobriety'
MILEY Cyrus confessed that she "fell off" during the pandemic, but said that her "discipline" allowed her to go "in and out of sobriety."
The popular singer revealed in June that she was six months sober.
The 28-year-old sat-down with Zane Lowe for Apple Music's New Music Daily to open up about some aspects about her life, including a personal moment.
She said: "Well, I, like a lot of people, being completely honest, during the pandemic fell off. "I would never sit here and go, 'I've been f—ing sober.'
"I didn't, and I fell off and I realized that I now am back on sobriety, two weeks sober, and I feel like I really accepted that time.
"To me, it was a f–k up because I'm not a moderation person, and I don't think that everyone has to be f—ing sober."
She continued, per People: "I think everyone has to do what is best for them. I don't have a problem with drinking.
"I've just been wanting to wake up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time."
Miley added: "I'm 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—ing do it anymore, I don't.
"The day that I do, I do. You know? But when I don't want to it just is. I'm just very disciplined."
While the hitmaker may have run into an obstacle during the pandemic, she did make it clear how important it is to to be sober.
She explained: "Twenty-seven 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. 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."
Back in June, the performer told her fans: "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 research, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges."
She added: "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."
It's been quite the up and down year for the entertainer as while she has released well received music, she also parted ways with her ex Cody Simpson after a 10-month relationship.
The star's breakup also came after it was reported her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, was "hurt" by her moving on from their split so quickly – the former pair ended things in 2019 after being together for 10 years, and married for two.
An insider told Us Weekly at the time: “Liam kind of has a low opinion of Miley at this point. He was really hurt by their split.
“Miley and Liam haven’t talked much since their divorce. Liam was hurt by Miley moving on with new love interests shortly after they broke up."
Always an open book, Miley would also talk about the divorce during a chat on the Call Her Daddy podcast.
Miley revealed: “I had a very public, very big breakup that was a 10-year span of a relationship.
“I tried not to get lost in the emotion … It’s like a death when you lose a loved one, it’s that deep.”
She emphasized by repeating how it felt again: “It feels like a death."
