Miley Cyrus is newly sober after falling off the wagon during the coronavirus pandemic.
The “Prison” singer told Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe, “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.”
The “Midnight Sky” singer explained, “I don't have a problem with drinking. I have a problem with the decisions I make once I go past that level…”
The 28-year-old also reflected on how the deaths of musicians like Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain inspired her to get sober.
“Twenty-seven to me was a year that I really had to protect myself. That actually really made me want to get sober, 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.”
