She said, “Alcohol was never my problem. I now just avoid really drinking because I like to wake up at 110 percent. But it’s never really been my problem and I could see myself having a drink of celebration in the future but I get so f—ing hungover now that I’m like, ‘Why would I celebrate with just feeling like a volcano’s erupted in my brain,’ you know?”
She then chatted about an experience she had with the drug ayahuasca around the time that she went vegan. She states, “[The guide] reached down my throat and pulled out every dead animal I had ever eaten and made me throw it up. But I didn’t see the animal that it was like… I saw me puking up seals. Puking up a seal—not fun.”
She also shares that she would like to write a series of children’s books one day. Her topic of choice if she does: drugs and alcohol. Miley explains her vision, saying, “I don’t like the idea that we teach them that this is sunshine world and everyone walks on a rainbow and everyone’s equal. And you need to say like… that’s not true. What are you going to do about it? And I think there’s a way to not terrify children of life, even though I go in and out of periods where I think life is really overwhelmingly terrifying.”
She adds that although she wants to touch on controversial topics, that’s not only what the books would be about. “But I do think that we do need to talk about, you know, equality, and I do think there needs to be diversity in children’s books,” she explains.
