'I can do anything'
Miley Cyrus has spoken out about the ways that her life has changed since giving up marijuana and going sober.
The ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer, who this year released her acclaimed latest album ‘Younger Now‘, had always been very vocal about her past use of weed. Now, not only free from marijuana for ‘9-10’ weeks but having also given up alcohol too, Cyrus says that she’s finding sobriety “very weird” – but ultimately rewarding.
“Look at my eyes, look at how white they are,” Cyrus told SiriusXM. “They’re clear and open and I can see and all that. A lot of people have reached out to me and they’re like, ‘You know, if you want help or if you want to go to these meetings’ and I’m like, ‘No, when I want something, I can do it’.”

She continued: “Anything that I want to do, if I want to stop or start something, I can do anything. I just decided not to [smoke] anymore and now it’s easy for me.”
Cyrus added: “I’ve got a lot of energy. I’ve always had a lot of energy. I’m a very obsessive person, which I need to work on, but also it helps in my position to be a little obsessive because then I can really get things done and make sure it’s perfect.”
Speaking to NME about coming to terms with her ‘outrageous’ past, Cyrus said: “I still really want to be an entertainer and show up in my own way and I don’t want to look like anybody else. With the short hair thing, it was an androgynous, sexy feeling, which is what I want people to feel like. I don’t wanna be over-feminised, but I’m not masculine either – I’m just myself. [What] people don’t really understand [about] gender fluidity is by feeling nothing, I feel everything. So I feel like this record is expressing that more than ever.
“I really can wake up one day and feel like ‘Malibu’, but then I can also feel like I want to be Roy Orbison.”
