In an interview with Variety, Miley Cyrus opened up about her sobriety. She 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. I had a really big vocal surgery in November.”

During recovery, she had four weeks that she wasn’t allowed to talk. And during that time, she thought a lot about her parents and said, “My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable.

And about her famous father, Billy Ray Cyrus, she said, “My dad’s parents divorced when he was 3, so my dad raised himself. I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the 27-year-old talked about her role in Netflix’s Black Mirror, admitting that without her parents, she believes her life “would’ve been more similar to the Ashley O story.”
