Miley Cyrus opens up about Liam Hemsworth

As Miley Cyrus celebrates the release of her new album Plastic Hearts, the singer is reflecting on what got her to this new era — in life and in her music.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the former Disney star opened up about her marriage to Liam Hemsworth and what was really going on behind closed doors. Cyrus, 28, said she was drinking and doing drugs while people thought she was living a “fairy tale.”

“In early 2018, I was playing house, which felt really good at the time,” she recalled. “Now I have this healthy perspective that I didn’t have before. I learned a lot about what I can and cannot be for someone else and what I can and cannot accept for myself.”

Cyrus continued, “A couple of years ago, it looked like I was living some fairy tale. It really wasn’t. At that time, my experimentation with drugs and booze and the circle of people around me was not fulfilling or sustainable or ever going to get me to my fullest potential and purpose.”

Hemsworth, 30, and the “Midnight Sky” singer were together for the better part of a decade and engaged for six years. They wed in December 2018, shortly after their house in Malibu burned down in the Woolsey Fire.

“In a way, [the wildfire] did what I couldn’t do for myself. It removed me from what no longer was serving its purpose. And then as you drown, you reach for that lifesaver and you want to save yourself,” she shared. “I think that’s really what, ultimately, getting married was for me. One last attempt to save myself.”

Cyrus, who is now sober, said she was drinking and doing drugs “at the same time” she was playing house with The Hunger Games actor. It’s ironic, the singer noted, as the media assumed she had it totally together when she was with Hemsworth and released Younger Now in 2017.

“There’s an idea that during the Younger Now era, I was pure. The media likes to have my hair or what I look like be the point of reference for my sanity. ‘Hair’s long and blond, she’s sane right now. She cannot be f***** up on drugs. It’s when her hair is painted or she’s growing out her armpit hair [that] she’s on drugs,’” Cyrus remarked.

“Dude, I was way more off my path at that time than any of the times before where my sanity was being questioned,” she continued. “I don’t like ever saying anything in a very solid concrete way, but right now I have been focusing on sobriety as I wanted to wake up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time. If I’ve ever learned to balance myself and to not take it too far, I would. But so far any time I’ve messed with that, it hasn’t gotten me what I want.”
