Miley Cyrus is not one to keep her life private. In her interview during the December 2 episode of The Howard Stern Show, the 28-year-old singer and actress talked about her days with Disney, her collab with Dua Lipa and her divorce from Liam Hemsworth among others.
Below are some of her big revelations at the show:
She loved Liam Hemsworth but there was too much conflict
To be clear, alcohol wasn’t the reason why the two split last year following only less than a year of being married. Cyrus said that she lost everything when their house in Malibu was burned because of the California wildfires.
She said, “Me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it and not wanting to go, you know, ‘What could be purposeful about this?’ I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him. And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will.”
However, she said there was too much conflict and she didn’t get off on drama and fighting. She wanted to go home where she’ll be anchored by someone.
She felt pressured doing Hannah Montana
Cyrus will never forget her Disney years. She said he couldn’t forget the pressures she faced back then.
She told Stern, “Some of my audience was so attached to a character, which wasn’t me. So, then that does a lot of psychological stuff, where it’s like, ‘Am I valuable as myself?’ Ok, the whole show’s premise was that when I had my normal hair and looked like myself, no one gave a s–t about me. And then when I got all dolled up and put a wig on, all of a sudden, you know, I’m being chased by people chasing my tour bus. So, that’s a lot to put on a kid—to go, ‘When you’re yourself, no one gives a f–k.’ But then 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.”
However, she admitted not being mad about it though it was disinteresting to her psychologically.
She never had a wet dream with Dua Lipa
Cyrus collaborated with Dua Lipa for “Prisoner” which came out in November. Stern mentioned that they looked like they were having full-on sex in their music video but Cyrus said they didn’t.
She explained, “We did not have sex. Dua Lipa constantly reminds me. She gives me the ‘in your dreams.’ I’ve never actually had a wet dream about Dua Lipa. That’s something that she’s projecting onto me. I did not get to have sex with her unfortunately.”
She also cleared that the singer is dating Anwar Hadid. She added, “I don’t really wanna f–k Dua Lipa that much. I think I know her too well as a friend, and, like, I don’t know—not really, no. But I definitely like kind of pretending that we have because it ends up getting us a lot of views on our music video. So, it’s just manipulation, just the standard pop culture manipulation. Ok, I kind of want to f–k her, like, 5 percent. The more and more I’m thinking about it, I kind of do.”
She has a lot of FaceTime Sex
Cyrus revealed that meeting and dating other people amid the pandemic was interesting and challenging. She said that she’s still seeing people and above all, she’s been doing a lot of FaceTime sex.
She was drinking during the pandemic but no drugs
When asked about how she gets sober, Cyrus said, “It’s the decision-making. When I want to do something, I do it and there’s just no question about it. So, it wasn’t as challenging as it can be for a lot of people.” She added it was hardest during a pandemic.
She shared, “I am always truthful. 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.”
However, she cleared that she doesn’t consider herself an alcoholic but not being sober has affected her relationships with people.
Cyrus said, “It really, really affects my relationships. I’m not the best partner; I’m not the best daughter; I’m not the best sister. I can be a little unreliable. So if that’s an alcoholic—if we’re not measuring it by how much we drink but how we perform as a human being—then I would say alcohol is a problem for me because I’m not at my best.”
