What Is Making Miley Cyrus Feel Younger Now?

Since Miley Cyrus made her comeback earlier this year, her name has been on everyone’s lips… and with good reason. Goodbye crazy stage antics and hello to the more relatable and refreshed Miley.

But what has caused this change? What makes her feel younger now? I get my detective cap on and find out…

She is back with Liam…

My little angel and I.

We were all gutted when Miley and Liam split up in 2013, and naturally, so was Miley. After going their own separate ways, and meeting other people, they slowly and surely found their own way back into each other’s lives. In 2016, Miley went to Australia and found herself in photos with the Hemsworth brothers friends. This definitely got fans hopeful, but their dreams became reality when it was rumored that the pair had got engaged again, and Miley was spotted wearing the same Neil Lane ring Hemsworth had popped the question with a few years back. Later on that year, Liam told GQ magazine, “at the time we were going in different directions and it’s just what needed to happen. We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time — we both needed that.”, Miley then revealed to Ellen Degeneres that they had got engaged.

Ever since they have been living the dream, and they have gone back to being #couplegoals. At the beginning of January 2017, Miley wrote a cute post on Instagram calling Liam her “favorite being ever”. They are reportedly thinking of starting their own family and are looking seriously at adoption… aww!

She is off the drugs…

It was never a secret that Miley used drugs, especially during her Bangerz phase. She even sung about her drug use, in songs like We Can’t Stop, “So la da di da di, we like to party, dancing with Molly…”.

In an interview with Billboard, Miley confessed she had given it all up, but she had to be in the right frame of mind to do it. “This is crazy, but I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks! 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.” Good on you, Miley!

She has come to terms with her Hannah Montana past…

If Miley completely changed personalities in the blink of an eye, it may have been because she was trying to ditch her Hannah Montana persona. When she performed with (and twerked on) Robin Thicke at the VMAs in 2013, everyone realized 2013 Miley was a far cry from the Miley we had known from the Hannah Montana days. Getting back with Liam and ditching the drugs allowed her to accept her childhood fame and also her present.

She told MTV, “I can be proud of all the Mileys I’ve ever been, instead of trying to run away from the 11 year old”. Her latest single, Younger Now, is about her reflecting on her past, and how she deals with experiences now. She is growing as a person, and added to MTV, “I am ok with who I used to be”. Being a child star can be difficult, but Miley seems to have readjusted to fame again.

Miley’s new album, also called Younger Now, is due for release on September 29th . Personally, I can’t wait to hear the new Miley – let me know what you guys think by leaving a comment!
