Miley Cyrus Quit Smoking but Says Her Mom Is Smoking ‘All the Weed I Do Not Smoke’

Miley Cyrus has never been shy about her love of marijuana. She spoke about it openly on talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live. However, being open and honest, Cyrus has also confirmed she’s currently sober in interviews with Variety and other outlets. That means no more weed. Her family, however, made no such restrictions.

Cyrus was a guest on the Zach Sang: Just the Interviews Podcast on Aug. 14 to discuss her new single “Midnight Sky.” When the topic turned to her sobriety and past marijuana use, Cyrus playfully threw some shade on her mother, Tish Cyus. 

Tish Cyrus smokes enough for both herself and Miley Cyrus

Cyrus has also said both of her parents, singer Billy Ray Cyrus and manager Tish, smoke marijuana liberally. Although they support their daughter’s sobriety, they haven’t curbed tier own usage. Now, Miley says her mom is smoking enough weed to make up for her sobriety.

“My mom, for all the weed that I don’t smoke, my mom has managed to take over the kush throne,” she told Sang. 

Stop making a big deal of Miley Cyrus’s sobriety

Cyrus confirmed to Sang what she told Variety, that she has maintained sobriety. However, she doesn’t want to be misconstrued as an activist for sobriety. 

“I do not smoke right now,” Cyrus said. “I’m also not really looking to be a face of sobriety.”

This is something Cyrus has learned from being in the media spotlight since she was a young actor/singer on Hannah Montana. She’s now more careful about how she speaks out, since so many people are listening.

“Obviously, I’m such an activist,” Cyrus said. “I feel like my opinions a lot of the times I’ve stated as fact, which I think is a mistake. I think, for me personally, being sober has been just where I’ve been able to get my job done and I really needed some clarity.”

The last two years of sobriety

Cyrus alluded to some reasons she needed to focus on her self-care. In recent years, she has endured divorce from Liam Hemsworth and other breakups from subsequent boyfriends. Cyrus says she decided to confront her personal issues without chemical assistance, but only for now. She has not given up cannibis forever.

“I had some trauma over the past two years and I really needed to deal with it from a super sane sober space,” Cyrus said. “Again, forever and ever no more is my new thing. I’m not committing to this is how I’m going to live my life forever, but for right now that feels good and if it follows through into a longer period of time than expected, then that’s good too.”

Cyrus’s new song, “Midnight Sky,” reflects where she currently is, sobriety included.

“This is just a chapter of my life,” she said. “I feel like in general, as a culture, we’re all feeling like it’s time to express our own narrative and regain that control of who we are and what’s acceptable to us and what is not. I think in times, that’s maybe why I’ve created worlds like this. This is kind of my idea of living with my head in the clouds of my own fantasy and the world that I want to create. I think that’s happening on a very political level right now.”
