During an appearance on radio station Apple Music Beats 1 to promote her new album Younger Now, Miley Cyrus recounted her not-so-quite halcyon days during the tour for her 2013 album Bangerz—and how high she was for its entire run.
Cyrus relayed to presenter Zane Lowe how her cannabis consumption contributed creatively to both the tracks on Bangerz and the aesthetics of her performances during that time. The most notable incarnation of this? The giant hot dog Cyrus rode on top of, swinging above her fans, for each concert stop on her Bangerz tour.
As she relayed to Lowe, Cyrus likened her life of celebrity to that of the character Truman Burbank, the titular character from The Truman Show, a satirical sci-fi flick in which the main character slowly becomes aware that his entire life is being filmed and watched by TV viewers.
“I was thinking about The Truman Show, thinking about how my life was like The Truman Show…(then I thought) ‘I’m gonna ride a giant hot dog over 20,000 people.'”
Extrapolating on her pot use during the tour, Cyrus added, “It was very scary actually, being very high and high on the hot dog. It was terrifying.”
Final Hit: Miley Cyrus Reminisces on Her Stoner Days
Now, however, Cyrus is approaching the release of her new album—and her new tour—without the artistic influence of marijuana.
“Yes, I’m six months sober this week which is not very fun,” the former Disney star joked.
This isn’t the first time that Miley has discussed her recently-found sobriety—or rather, her drug-hazed days of yesteryear. In another interview with Jimmy Fallon, she chided the late-night host about being stoned as a guest on The Tonight Show during her previous appearances.
“I’ve always been very stoned on your shows,” she said, indicating that this time, at least, she wasn’t.
The singer then went on to explain exactly why she had decided to give up her cannabis consumption almost half a year ago.
“I stopped smoking because to sit here and talk about what I’m doing, I wanted to be clear,” she said at the time. “Because I’m actually the most passionate about what I’m doing with this record than I’ve been—I say this every time, but I loved making this record so, so much. and this record for me at this moment is the most important album that I’ve ever made.”
As a funny aside, it was on one of these prior appearances—where, for all intents and purposes, Cyrus was probably baked AF—that she proceeded to incorrectly answer which states had legalized pot during a trivia game with Fallon.
Miley Cyrus’ latest album Younger Now will be available for purchase and download on Friday.
