Miley Cyrus recently revealed that she is now two weeks sober after having a brief relapse amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the 28-year-old singer opened up about her sobriety journey and how the pandemic has affected her personal life. The “Prisoner” hitmaker noted that she is not ashamed to tell the world that she “fell off” sobriety during the global health crisis.

Cyrus also said she's not someone who would say everything is fine even when it isn’t. The singer assured her fans that she is “two weeks sober” and ready to accept that she lost her track during the lockdown.

“Well, I, like a lot of people, being completely honest, during the pandemic fell off. and felt really a lot of and I would never sit here and go, ‘I've been [explicit] sober.’ I didn't, and I fell off and I realized that I now am back on sobriety, two weeks sober, and I feel like I really accepted that time,” Cyrus said during the interview.

The singer also noted that she doesn’t want to look at what happened in the past and is now concentrating on moving forward.

“One of the things I’ve used is, ‘Don’t get furious, get curious.’ So don’t be mad at yourself, but ask yourself, ‘What happened?’” Cyrus said.

The “Wrecking Ball” singer also expressed that she is “not a moderation person,” and believes that everyone has the right to do whatever they want to.

“I think everyone has to do what is best for them. I don't have a problem with drinking. I have a problem with the decisions I make once I go past that level. Even into, I've just been wanting to wake up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time. I'm very disciplined. That's why it's never easy, but it's pretty easy for me to be sober or in and out of sobriety because it's like the day I don't want to [explicit] do it anymore, I don't,” the singer noted.

This is hardly the first time Cyrus has discussed drinking and sobriety. Earlier this year, the “Don’t Call Me Angel” star revealed that she has been “sober sober” since the start of the year and decided to go in that direction after examining her family history.

“By understanding the past, we understand the present and the future much more clearly. I think therapy is great,” Cyrus told Variety at the time.

Cyrus is currently riding high on the success of her latest song, “Prisoner.” The song, which also features Dua Lipa, has already been adjudged a massive hit by her followers and has received positive reviews. NME, which gave the tune 5 stars, called it a “disco-punk anthem.”
