Miley Cyrus opened up about coping with hurt and hard times and revealed the tool she uses to get through it. In a recent interview, the singer talks about how she deals with loss and trauma in her life.
She lost her Malibu home back in 2018, had to go through a divorce with Liam Hemsworth last year and her grandmother passed away in August. The Midnight Sky singer revealed that her feelings “change really drastically all the time”. She explained it is because every experience that we have changed the way that one perceives his/her life.
Further in her interview for the talk show, Skavlan, the host asked her if she is becoming more or less emotional as she grows older. The singer responded that it depends on who she is speaking to. The Hannah Montana alum said, “If you ask dudes I’ve broken up with they’ll say less, but I think more,” she said. “I would say that there’s a stigma of coldness for a woman who actually, really moves on.”
Miley further shared how she has gone through a lot of trauma and loss in the last couple of years. She explained, “I had a house fire in Malibu where I lost my house and went through a divorce recently, my grandma super close with, I lost.”
The singer shared she did not spend time crying over it and it wasn’t because she was cold or trying to avoid her feelings. She explains it was because she wasn’t going to change it by crying. “I tried to just continue to be active in what I can control, otherwise you just start feeling like you’re trapped,” she explained.
“I Don’t Believe COVID Has Been An Equalizer In Any Way”
Miley added that her way of coping does not involve crying and she instead chooses to move on. She explained that she heals through movement, traveling, and meeting new people. The singer said, “As you lose one person, another person comes into your life.”
The Malibu singer shared how she thinks the COVID-19 pandemic is not the great equalizer as per Madonna. She said she does not agree with it. Miley explained, “I think that we’ve seen more divide recently than I have in my lifetime, just because we are really understanding the division between race and wealth, and that wealth and health can actually be the same thing.”
She shared how she thinks that is “unfathomably” wrong which is why the election is so important. “So no, I don’t believe COVID has been an equalizer in any way,” she added.
Miley recently announced that she will release her seventh studio album, Plastic Hearts on November 27. The singer took her Instagram to make the announcement.
Her new album will include 12 tracks which will also include her latest hit, Midnight Sky. The album will also include her live covers of Heart Of Glass (Blondie) and Zombie (The Cranberries). The singer also released her album cover which is a black and pink art for Plastic Hearts.
Rock photographer, Mick Rock, captured the image of Miley. Miley will be releasing her new first full-length album after more than three years. She had released, She Is Coming last year which is the first of a trio of slated EPs.
“Nature Did What I Now See As A Favor”
However, the singer scrapped the second and third installments after announcing her divorce from Liam Hemsworth. The actor filed for divorce back in August last year and settled their divorce by last December. This came just one year after they tied the knot.
Miley wrote a heartfelt letter informing fans how the wildfire had destroyed her Malibu home. She wrote how she had begun this album two years ago and thought she had it all figured out.
The singer wrote,” I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record — its songs/sounds but my whole f—ing life. No one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the music’s relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”
