During a recent episode of Variety’s ‘The Big Ticket’ podcast, Miley Cyrus reveals what advice she gave 16-year old Justin Bieber, the love she has for Britney Spears and how many months she’s remained sober.




Below is a breakdown of Miley’s interview.


Advice she gave Justin Bieber:

“I remember I was sitting in front of him at his movie premiere [Never Say Never]. I was 16, something like that. He leaned up to me and asked for advice in a very mellow, friendly way.  I said, ‘Just try to remember everything, try to press record in your brain and remember everything,’ because there are so many moments of my life when my mom will be like, ‘Do you remember when you got to perform for the queen?’ And I’m like, ‘no.’  There was so much going, so much to take in as such a young person that I didn’t remember to take everything in.  That’s something my dad always taught me, was when you’re on stage, whether it’s when you get there or when you’re about to leave, take a picture in your mind. And remember it, and savor it, and take it in.  Man, I think we could come up with something very, very, very special. So, you know, I’ve gotta reach out to him about that.  As of now, nothing is in the works.”

On being sober:

“I’ve been sober sober for the past six months.  At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery … but I had been thinking a lot about my mother.  My mom was adopted, and I inherited some of the feelings she had, the abandonment feelings and wanting to prove that you’re wanted and valuable.  My dad’s parents divorved when she was 3, so my dad raised himself.  I did a lot of family history, which has a lot of addiction and mental health challenges.  So just going through that and asking, ‘Why am I the way that I am?’ By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly.  I think therapy is great.”




On Britney Spears:

“I had the most weird hodgepodge of Britney Spears, ‘NSYNC, Metallica and Hilary Duff.  I had Joan Jet and Pat Benatar.  You’ve should’ve seen my face when Britney covered ‘I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll’ in ‘Crossroads.’  I melted down.  That scene was the father, the son and the Holy Spirit all in one room.  I actually lost my mind.  That was worlds colliding beyond what I could have ever dreamed of.”
