Singer also speaks about becoming the first Disney star to embrace the LGBT community
Miley Cyrus has revealed that she lost her Walmart clothing line because of her weed habit.
The ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer has made no secret of her fondness for marijuana in recent years, posting several joint-smoking selfies on Instagram and even wearing an onesie with a marijuana leaf pattern on stage.
“I had a clothing line at Walmart and got kicked out, because they said you had to choose weed or Walmart,” Cyrus told Variety. “And you see what I did – I chose weed.”
During the interview, Cyrus also discussed her LGBTQ activism, which includes running a nonprofit organisation, Happy Hippie, which aims to reduce youth homelessness, particularly among LGBTQ teenagers.
“My empowerment comes from feeling like I have a purpose now,” she explained. “On my tombstone, I didn’t want the ‘Wrecking Ball’ lyrics. I wanted it to be something greater. I’m the only fucking Disney star who would say I’m pro lesbian and gay, before it was OK to say that.”
Asked if she got in trouble with Disney for her LGBT activism, Cyrus replied: “I actually didn’t, because a lot of the dudes that work for Disney are gay, so they were very happy to have someone on their side.”
