Miley Cyrus was candid during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, where the singer talked about drugs and alcohol. In the interview, which doesn’t release in full until next month, the “We Can’t Stop” singer all but admitted to smoking marijuana.
Cyrus became a controversial figure in 2010 when video of surfaced online of the former Disney star smoking from a bong. The singer has yet to give a straight answer regarding her potential marijuana use.
However, in the new interview, Miley was asked if she smokes pot. She responded cryptically, referring to the song she sang with Snoop Dog called “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks.” She added, “people can put it together for themselves.” Cyrus further explained:
“I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana — and people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don’t care. I’ve seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I’ve never seen that happen with weed.”
Why? Miley Cyrus explained that people are simply more laid back when they are using marijuana. The singer also noted, “As long as it isn’t illegal, there are far more dangerous things.” While not everyone will agree with Miley’s point of view, we can think of several who do.
And it wasn’t just Miley Cyrus’ marijuana use that came up during the interview. The singer’s new song, “We Can’t Stop” allegedly has her singing about “molly,” another word for ecstasy that cropped up this year. While Cyrus explains her accent makes her name, “Miley,” sound like “molly,” not everyone has accepted the explanation.
Still, Cyrus insisted, “You’re not allowed to say ‘molly’ on the radio, so it obviously says ‘Miley.’ I knew people were gonna wonder what I’m saying in that song.” But despite her intentions to keep “We Can’t Stop” drug free, the singer also explained that some hip hop artists refer to cocaine as “Miley Cyrus.”
