Miley Cyrus has always been candid about her personal life. In a recent interview on the iHeartRadio podcast The Big Ticket, the singer recently opened up about her journey with sobriety and revealed that she’s been officially “sober sober” for six months.
Miley said “It’s been really important for me over the last year living a sober lifestyle, because I really wanted to polish up my craft.” The topic of sobriety isn’t a new one for Miley, who has been outspoken her experiences with smoking marijuana in the past and has been extremely open about her drug use in general, especially on her social media.
Miley also admitted that it’s hard, as a young person, to make the decision to become sober, because there’s often a stigma attached to you for it. People assume “you’re no fun,” but she said that’s not an issue for her because she knows she’s a good time. “The thing that I love about it is waking up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time,” said Miley. “I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.”
