Miley Cyrus used to smoke a lot of weed. If you are surprised by this fact, there is much more shocking news out there for you. Adele is a popular singer. Steph Curry is a good 3-point shooter. Donald Trump has a mean streak. Really, it’s all true. But Miley has given up the chebe, telling affable Jimmy Fallon that she wanted to get “super clear” for her latest album (check out the single, “Malibu” below.)
The “clear” description’s echo of Scientology is just a coincidence. Miley is basically saying she isn’t going to get so high anymore that she comes on Fallon’s show dressed as a bunny like she did last time. She told Fallon another reason she quit smoking weed was because of a scary dream that she would “die during my monologue on SNL” — that she would “get so stoned that I just died, which I googled and that’s never happened,” she said. A Google search confirms Miley’s research. But plenty of comedians will tell you they died during their monologue because they were too high. It’s a figurative death. Hurts nearly as much.
