Miley Cyrus has made the candid nature of her engagements with peers, fans, and the press a staple of her career over the last few years, always one of the first to open up about trials, tribulations, and successes she has encountered in life.
Now, in arguably one of her most revealing interview ever with Sirius XM host Howard Stern, the singer talks about everything in her personal life, highlighting Facetime sex, sobriety, and even some more details about her past relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
Sexual Tension With Dua Lipa
After the release of their recent track and accompanying music video “Prisoner,” fellow superstar Dua Lipa and Cyrus were subjected to criticism that they, as Stern said, “it looks like the two of you are having full-on sex,” in the new music video, which Cyrus jokingly shot down.
“We did not have sex,” the singer responded to the claims. “Dua Lipa constantly reminds me. She gives me the ‘in your dreams.’ I’ve never actually had a wet dream about Dua Lipa. That’s something that she’s projecting onto me. I did not get to have sex with her unfortunately.”
Cyrus, an admittedly openly sexual individual, shared how she is overcoming the difficulties of finding intimacy while many parts of the world are still under quarantine due to COVID-19.
The singer said it has been a “really interesting and challenging” ordeal finding sexual partners amidst the pandemic, but added, “I do a lot of Facetime sex.”
Cyrus has been exploring her options in the romantic field quite publicly since her equally reported on messy divorce from Liam Hemsworth transpired over the summer.
The singer said the root of their problems prior to the divorce stemmed from the fact that “there was too much conflict. When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone,” she explained to Stern. “I don’t get off on drama or fighting.”
Despite the drama and the fact that the actor and singer have now amicably gone their separate ways, Cyrus maintains that she still has feelings for her ex, saying, “I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will.”
After briefly touching on her sobriety in another interview earlier in 2020, Cyrus explained in much more detail the extent of her avoidance of substance abuse for the forseeable future.
“It’s the decision-making,” the singer said of the hardest element of keeping clean, “When I want to do something, I do it and there’s just no question about it. So, it wasn’t as challenging as it can be for a lot of people.”
She also mentioned that the biggest toll being under the influence had on her personal life was in relationships, saying, “It really, really affects my relationships. I’m not the best partner; I’m not the best daughter; I’m not the best sister. I can be a little unreliable. So if that’s an alcoholic—if we’re not measuring it by how much we drink but how we perform as a human being—then I would say alcohol is a problem for me because I’m not at my best.”
