Miley Cyrus Quit Smoking Because She Didn’t Want To Be Like Winehouse, Cobain & Hendrix: Gone At 27

Did you know about the ’27 Club’?

Miley Ray Cyrus (formerly ‘Destiny Hope Cyrus’, how cute is that?) has had a rollercoaster of a year – with her wildly popular ‘Bright Minded’ quarantine show, the successful release of her single ‘Midnight Sky’ which went on to become her highest-charting solo single since 2017, her viral performances on MTV’ Unplugged’s Backyard sessions and the upcoming release of her seventh studio album ‘Plastic Hearts’. However, amidst the highs, there were a few lows. Having just turned 27-years-old on the 23rd of November, Cyrus admitted to having cleaned up her act for fear of joining the countless other famous musicians who hadn’t made it past their 27th birthday.

In an interview for Apple Music’s ‘New Music Daily, Cyrus revealed that her decision to stop smoking was the result of a variety of factors, with one being that she didn’t want to be a part of the ’27 Club’, an unsettling term for the numerous musicians that passed away at the young age of 27. These include Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. According to Miley, she described her fear as:

 

“A fear of death is instinctual… 27 to me was a year that I really had to protect myself. That actually really made me want to get sober because we’ve lost so many icons at 27. It’s a very pivotal time. You go into that next chapter or this is it for you. I just feel that some of the artists that almost couldn’t handle their own power and their own energy and their own force… It’s an energy,”

 

Although initially, Cyrus had told Variety that the decision was due to a vocal surgery in 2019, the singer attributed the epiphany and her change in direction to the need to grow from her childhood trauma.

Sharing on the podcast ‘The Big Ticket’, Cyrus said:

 

“My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable. My dad’s parents divorced when he was 3, so my dad raised himself. I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges. So just going through that and asking, ‘Why am I the way that I am?’ By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly.”

As for what she tells herself (and her advice when slip-ups happen), Cyrus wisely states:

 

“One of the things I’ve used is, ‘Don’t get furious, get curious’. So don’t be mad at yourself, but ask yourself, “What happened?'”
