Miley Cyrus is embracing her flaws. The “Flower” singer revealed the reason touring “isn’t healthy for me.” In her ABC special documentary, Miley Cyrus: Endless Summer Vacation, which showcases her “Used to Be Young” series on TikTok, the singer shares the obstacles of being a performer. The former Disney alum has been in the limelight after the release of her single “Used to Be Young“, where she opened up about the lowest points of her life. Let’s dig into the details.
Miley Cyrus said touring isn’t healthy for her
The 30-year-old revealed how being a cheerleader before becoming famous developed her perspective in life.
The singer said, “Traveling as a cheerleader really set me up for touring. The show or the competition may only be a day, and that’s what people don’t really understand about touring. The show is only 90 minutes, but that’s your life.”
Later on, she talked about the extreme pressure the performers face during a show that sometimes their well-being was ignored.
“If you’re performing at a certain level of intensity and excellence, there should be an equal amount of recovery and rest,” The “Jaded” singer said.
Moreover, Miley revealed how she struggles to balance her ego and humanity. As she added, “There’s a level of ego that has to play a part that I feel gets overused when I’m on tour. And once that switch is on, it’s hard to turn it off. I think when you’re training your ego every single night to be active, that’s the hardest switch for me to turn off. Having every day the relationship between you and other humans being subject and observer isn’t healthy for me, because it erases my humanity and my connection. And without my humanity, my connection, I can’t be a songwriter, which is my priority.”
