Miley Cyrus says her life is an open book, even though it may read more like a trashy novel.
In a candid interview on “The Howard Stern Show,” the 28-year-old singer ranted, reflected and talked dirty to the shock jock.
When asked about her new “Prisoner” music video with singer Dua Lipa, Cyrus called it “standard pop culture manipulation” (which may explain the images of Miley eating a spider and getting it on in the back of a tour bus).
She also reminisced about her “Hannah Montana” days and said she hasn’t forgotten the pressures she faced as a Disney Channel star.
“When they go and kind of groom you to look like something else, something that you’re not, and you’re really young, and it’s a lot of makeup and, you know, wigs and all this stuff, it does something psychologically,” she told Stern.
However, she said she’s “not mad about it.” “I know how to lay down a wig like nobody else’s business. That I learned,” she quipped.
The singer also talked about her recent sobriety and said she’s been living sober for the past year, if you don’t count the booze.
“I am always truthful,” Cyrus shared. “And a lot of people, their sobriety broke during this time. I was one of them. Luckily, I haven’t gone back to using any drugs, but I was drinking during the pandemic.”
Still, Cyrus said alcohol was not to blame for the end of her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. The two were together for a decade, married in 2018 and announced their split a year later. Cyrus said she loves Liam. Always has, always will – but the singer of “Wrecking Ball” said there was “too much conflict” in the relationship for it to continue.
On the topic of meeting someone new, Cyrus said she’s recently been seeing people in other ways, and as she puts it, “I do a lot of FaceTime sex.”
