To her fans, and basically every one’s relief, Miley Cyrus is back being sober again! The singer/songwriter has recently opened up about politics, getting back with Liam Hemsworth, quitting drugs and releasing new album, which is going to be out this May.
The “Adore You” singer has been avoiding red carpets, focusing on her music these past years. Her new record “Malibu” is all set to be released on the 11th of May, 2017, worldwide. Describing this particular song, she has shared with Billboard about it being a love song for her Aussie fiancé, Liam.
The Voice coach further revealed that her 6th studio album will be releasing later this year, and its still untitled so far. Fans are hoping for this album to be something different this time, seeing the transition Miley has been through. We sure do trust her to be returning back to her country music roots, which were lit af, we have to admit. After all, she prompts, “Dolly Parton is my fucking godmother.”
“My record is political,” she accepts, “but the sound bite doesn’t stop there. Because you can write something beautiful and you know E! News will ruin our lives and say, ‘This is a political record.’ Because then I’m the Dixie Chicks and I’m getting my album smashed in the streets, and that’s not what I want. I want to talk to people in a compassionate, understanding way — which people aren’t doing.”
However, Cyrus has explained in a detailed cover story that this isn’t the only big change which took place in her life. If we observe closely, a lot has happened since the 24-year-old artist released her song “We can’t stop” back in 2015.
“(People are) going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam,” Miley shared feelings with the magazine. “So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel’?”. The response came when she was questioned about her reinstated relationship with the Hunger Games hunk, Liam Hemsworth. Previously, the duo went through a break up back in 2013.
“I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, ‘I don’t recognize you anymore,’” she says. “We had to re-fall for each other.”
If there was one thing she was tired of doing, it was posing on the red carpet wearing thongs, right beside her parents—she admits at last. “I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do,” she tells Billboard. At the same time saying that she would never have done it if someone “asked” her not to smoke. She’s totally focused because she wants it that way, with her own permission only. Woah, what swag.
When discussing her sexuality, she was asked to comment on the news of her coming out as a pansexual, to which she responded saying, “…I just don’t feel like a girl, and I don’t feel like a boy. I just feel like nothing,”
“I have to ask myself, ‘How am I going to create real change?’” she asks, “and not just fucking preach to the choir anymore. This record is a reflection of the fact that yes, I don’t give a fuck, but right now is not a time to not give a fuck about people. I’m giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good — I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back.’”
Last year, Cyrus took to Instagram, after being emotional when she campaigned fiercely for Hillary Clinton, yet they lost elections “even after technically winning” them. This is why her new album, which is going to include ten numbers, also takes a political stance, with her reaching out for people who don’t agree with her.
“I like talking to people that don’t agree with me, but I don’t think I can do that in an aggressive way,” Cyrus speaks out on expressing difference of opinion. “I don’t think those people are going to listen to me when I’m sitting there in nipple pasties, you know?”
Opening up about how the elections changed her she said, “I like the way I think right now. But don’t Trump supporters like the way they think? So, I’ve also got to be open with the way I approach people with my opinions. That’s the only way to make real change. And it’s not because I want to sell records! I know now the ways that don’t work. Because I went really hard during the election. But at the end of the day, we lost. We won, but because the system is fucked up, we lost. I thought, “OK. I learned my lesson on this one’”.
The “Happy Hippie” youth activist is now encouraging people to “Turn emotions into actions!” she believes that America seriously needs to get united to achieve something.
Well, Miley, you still rock, because after being out unleashed, you still somehow managed to sort your shit and get it back together. “I know exactly where I wanna be,” she spoke. And, in case you are thinking where is that “exactly” is, its in a Malibu compound, which was bought earlier by Liam. The couple has been sharing the place with their 7 dogs, 2 pigs and 2 horses. When she is not doing “the Voice,” she admits walking her dogs to do some grocery shopping is the activity she loves best.
“This is Miley leaning into her roots more than I’ve ever heard,” Billy Ray Cyrus, her dad speaks, who also happens to be a country singer and actor himself.
Seems that the 2013 “Bangerz,” and the 2015 “Dead Petz,” phase is over for Miley Cyrus, and she’s once again doing it the Hannah Montana way.
Gear up and get ready for the upcoming “Malibu,” a breezy romantic single that Cyrus says she wrote while she was riding in Uber on her way to “The Voice”.
