Miley Cyrus Quits Smoking Weed...For Now
The style-switching pop star isn’t listening to rap music anymore, and she’s ditching her stoner friends too.
Published on May 4, 2017

If it’s been a while since you heard anything from Miley Cyrus, that’s no coincidence. The former Disney star turned smoked-out Mike Will Made It collaborator has been staying off the radar on purpose, but with a new album on the horizon, Miley’s come out of hiding to promote her new music and show the world her new clear-headed, weed-free lifestyle. 

“I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks!” Cyrus told reporters from Billboard Magazine.

Miley, who even a few months ago was taking turkey bags of bud on tour, says that she’s even stopped hanging out with potheads in an effort to refocus her life.

“I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved, open. And I was noticing, it’s not the people that are stoned. I want to be super clear and sharp, because I know exactly where I want to be.”

Cyrus says the three-week hiatus is the longest she’s gone without smoking since she first started, but that it hasn’t been hard to abstain. 

“It’s easy, dude. When I want something, it’s fucking easy for me. But if anyone told me not to smoke, I would have not done it. It’s because it was on my time.” Cyrus said. 

A lack of smoke isn’t the only change that Miley’s made, either. She quit drinking as well, and even stopped listening to rap music because of issues with blatant misogyny.

Predictably, Miley’s new album Malibu will step away from the trap-pop style she cultivated for her last major label release, Bangerz

But while Miley seems to be pushing her life, and career, in a new direction, we won’t rule out an eventual return to last month’s stoner ways. 

So remember Miley, we’re always a phone call away – and as you already know, we throw quite the party.
