Miley Cyrus Talks About The Reason Behind Her Decision To Quit Drugs

"It's like, no one's ever died from weed, but no one's ever smoked as much as I did."

You don't need me to introduce you to Miley Cyrus, queen of Malibu, rainbows, and having the best of both worlds.

If you know Miley (and I know you do), you'll know she went through a period of time where she smoked a lot of weed. Like, a LOT. You'll know this because she talked about it pretty much all the time.

"I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now!" she told the magazine. "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."

And last night, in an interview with Jimmy Fallon for The Tonight Show, Miley opened up even more about her reasons for going sober.

"I stopped smoking because, to sit here and talk about what I'm doing, I wanted to be really clear," she said.

I loved making this record so much, and this record, for me, at this moment, is the most important album I've ever made. So I wanted to make sure I'm super clear about the way I'm talking ... I was just thinking, if I want to sit on this couch and really tell people what I think about this new music, I wanted to sound as smart as I think I can be and really explain what I'm doing. I really just want to sit at home and eat when I'm stoned. And play with my dogs and the cat and the pig.

She then revealed that she had a recurring nightmare in which she smoked so much weed that she died.*

*She then clarified that (according to her googling) this has never actually happened to anyone, so it's fine, guys.

"I hope people get to see that, because with Bangerz, I never tried to prove anything or not be myself," she continued.

Any time I say I'm being myself – whether I look like this, or I look completely different, or I'm a panda – that is myself. I'm always being myself. It just depends what that is.
