Miley Cyrus’ said goodbye to her Disney darling image 10 years ago. On Sunday, December 13, the former Hannah Montana star took to Instagram to share a part of a video showing the then 18-year-old smoking from a bong. She captioned it, “Happy 10 year anniversary to the groundbreaking video of a teenager smoking a bong & saying dumb s–t to their friends. (Not sure the director of this fine film should be considered a ‘friend’ but…)”
She added, “Time really flew by. I remember this like it was yesterday….. J/K I don’t remember s–t cause I was f–ked the hell up.”
In addition, she confirmed, “#YesItWasReallySalvia #IfYouFindWeedThatDoesThisToYouSHARE.”
Back then, Cyrus had some scandalous moments like wearing very revealing clothes as opposed to what Disney Channel approves of and pole-dancing at the Teen Choice Awards. But in December 2010, TMZ posted a leaked video showing the Disney star smoking from a bong saying she was having a little bit of a bad trip.
The outlet reported that she was smoking salvia which is legal in California and other states. Based on the footage Miley shared, she was coughing and laughing and said, “Okay, I’m about to lose it now.”
The one filming said, “I’m just gonna document the s–t out of this right now.”
On the other hand, Miley’s dad Billy Ray Cyrus, whom she also worked with in Hannah Montana explained then that he had no idea and that much is beyond his control now.
Meanwhile, Miley didn’t include the part in the TMZ video in her Instagram post where she referenced Liam Hemsworth who was her ex then. However, they later got back together, married in 2018 and separated in 2019.
Based on the original leaked video, Miley was saying, “Whoa, is that a f–king Liam [Hemsworth] look-alike, or what the hell is that? Is that my boyfriend? Is that my boyfriend? Oh my God, he looks so much like Liam. Is that me tripping, is that me tripping? He doesn’t look like Liam? He looks so much like Liam. Dude, that looks just like Liam.”
Miley apologized for the whole incident months after it happened explaining that she’s not perfect and she made a mistake. She also apologized for disappointing her fans.
