    Demi Lovato Said She's "Proud" Of Miley Cyrus For Getting Sober

    In praising Miley, Demi also hinted that their alleged long-running feud is over too.

    Over the past few years, Miley Cyrus has been open about her weed use. She once built a five foot bong on Instagram and smoked a joint onstage at the MTV EMAs.


    However, last week, Miley Cryus revealed that she was sober for the first time in years after quitting weed and alcohol.

    Speaking to Billboard magazine, Miley said:

    This is crazy, but I haven't smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I've ever gone without it. 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 clean and sharp, because I know exactly where I want to be.

    She later told SiriusXM that the decision to quit had actually been easy to execute.

    She said:

    A lot of people have reached out to me and they're like, "You know, if you want help or if you want to go to these meetings," and I'm like, "No." When I want something I can do it. Anything that I want to do, if I want to stop or start something, I can do anything. I just decided not to smoke any more, and now it's easy for me.

    And it seems that Miley's new-found sobriety has also brought an end to her alleged feud with Demi Lovato.

    Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Demi, who's had her own addiction struggles in the past, praised Miley and said she was "proud" of her for getting sober.

    Demi said:

    I am really proud of Miley. I think that it helps people to know that there are people in the spotlight that have challenges, that are faced with very stressful lives. I think it helps to know that recovery is possible and it's something that is so important to certain people like myself.

    Demi recently celebrated her five year sobriety milestone, went on to point out that "addiction doesn't discriminate," and commended anyone who's managed to regain control.

    She said:

    I wouldn't be alive without my sobriety, and the people that are sober today in this industry – I commend them a lot. But even in day-to-day life, no matter whether you are from the middle of nowhere or you live in a big city, addiction doesn't discriminate, so whenever you are able to take control back, it's really admirable.

    Go Demi and Miley! 💗
